(RepublicanInformer.com)- When President Biden last week accused Facebook of killing people, columnist Stephen L. Miller predicted that it won’t be long before the White House and the media began pushing the narrative that Fox News is killing people by spreading misinformation.
It didn’t take long for Miller’s prediction to prove true. In fact, CNN had already started doing just that.
On CNN’s New Day on Wednesday, the gaggle of talking heads claimed that Fox News is killing Americans with what they called “vaccine misinformation” in order to hurt President Biden.
CNN: Fox News is killing Americans with vaccine "misinformation" to hurt Biden: "[Vaccinating Americans] might help Joe Biden … And you can’t have that. That’s the rational for going out and saying, 'We’re going to give people information that could wind up killing them'." pic.twitter.com/M5f8W9irFH

This was followed up by CNN’s Erin Burnett who, after accusing Republicans for the low vaccination rate, played segments from Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham speaking out against forced vaccinations.
Calling objecting to forcing free Americans to take a vaccine against their will “stunning,” Burnett claimed Fox News knows what they’re saying is “complete bullshit” and they should be ashamed.
On Sunday’s CNN State of the Union, anchor Dana Bash was more direct. In an interview with Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, Bash asked if Fox News was “killing people” with its commentary on the vaccine.
To his credit, Murthy sidestepped the question, only saying that everyone, including the media, “have a responsibility to share the truth about health as science dictates.”
Like Erin Burnett, Bash played the clips of Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson objecting to forced vaccinations.
“My worry is that all this misinformation that’s floating around is having a real cost that can be measured in lives lost and that is just tragic,” says US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy on the spread of vaccine disinformation on social media and by conservative media. #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/hBTk3NDs9s

The irony of Dana Bash accusing Fox of killing people for objecting to forcing Americans into taking the vaccine is striking to say the least.
In September 2020, it was the same Dana Bash who during CNN’s State of the Union asked then VP candidate Kamala Harris if she would trust a vaccine developed through President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.
BASH: "Let’s just say there’s a vaccine that is approved and even distributed before the election. Would you get it?"
HARRIS: "Well, I think that’s going to be an issue for all of us. I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump… I will not take his word for it." #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/jhxtdvaMF1

Is Dana Bash killing people?
Is Kamala Harris?
What’s happening here is obvious if you understand how venal and corrupt both the White House and its media lapdogs are.
President Biden bungled the vaccine distribution. He promised a lofty goal of 70 percent of the country vaccinated by July 4 and he failed to meet his goal.
He failed. Not Facebook. Not Fox News. Joe Biden failed.
But neither CNN nor the White House will ever acknowledge that the Biden Administration mismanaged things. Instead, they look for a scapegoat. So they blame “misinformation” on Facebook; they blame Republican lawmakers; and of course, they blame Fox News.
