Fox News falls in line with big media, bashes covid treatment

Fox News is crushing the other networks in the ratings because they’ve been willing to be fair and balanced. But in a recent article on Joe Rogan’s covid diagnosis and treatment with the drug ivermectin, Fox adopted the mainstream line and bashed the treatment.

The article purports to be about Rogan’s diagnosis, but three paragraphs in, it pivots to a confused jumble of FDA warnings and legal boilerplate about the FDA not recommending the drug. For the next six paragraphs, the article bashes ivermectin.

That may be the way the bosses at Fox would like to cover the story, but some conservatives are concerned that the FDA’s rejection of the therapeutic benefit of ivermectin is premature. After all, the drug has been safely used in humans for decades, and the WHO is recommending the drug for use in clinical trials.

A recent meta-analysis of it’s use in treating covid showed widely positive data and many doctors in the US are prescribing it for off-label use. (Another study also found the same)

To top it off, the National Institutes of Health has designated ivermectin as an option for use in Covid-19 cases.

The hysteria of leftists who bash the treatment as “horse dewormer” is both unscientific and dangerous. So why is Fox playing into it?

Ivermectin may or may not be an effective therapeutic for Covid, but instead of making it about hysterical politics, we should follow the evidence. Fox, by seeking to silence a promising treatment, is acting as a disinformation channel like the rest of the media.

I saw Daniel Horowitz’s podcast on Ivermectin the other day, it was very interesting. Did you know that Ivermectin (called ‘mectizan’) was used to irradicate “riverblindness” in HUMANS(I forgot the formal name for the disease) in Africa..it was a miracle, 2.8 million doses.. (and this happened before everything became so political). Saying it is not for humans is a LIE. A quote on the podcast was “May they burn in Hell for this lie about Ivermectin.” Actually, Merck and the WHO had 7yrs of randomized control trials on this drug.(vs a rushed through ‘vaccine’ we are being led to believe is safe, what a joke). In 2019 Ivermectin was on the WHO’s “modern list of essential medicines”. It has a wide mechanism of action and has limited side effects, and is used in all parts of the world. In its 20 yr. anniversary, Merck applauded the drug………The media wants to give the impression that it’s only an animal medication, and that it’s ‘day one’ for Ivermectin use. No wonder people don’t trust gov’t or media.

Unfortunately Gutfeld is now drinking the vaccines are safe and effective Kool aid narrative. He won’t be #1 late night show for long if he keeps parroting the Big Pharma lie. Trump hater RINO Paul Ryan is destroying FOX.

Thanks for the update on Fox; however, I never relied on them to provide truly unbiased news or information.

I agree, I know people that have taken that and it worked for them. If Fox is going to go by way of the other news, then they will lose me. Try Newsmax!

Indeed. Ivermectin is a horse medicine, but many, many medicines have the same basis. Medicines are a copy of the real thing and I’d prefer them to the lab made up versions. I read it was re-done to make it safe for humans, so what’s wrong with that. Too much hype can discourage people from doing things that are not good as we have seen. Propaganda can work for or against us, and that is why we need to research for ourselves and not take other peoples advice. It’s called Critical Thinking. When we read information, let’s pause and see how it “feels”. If something is off, look deeper and learn – one way or the other.
