On Sunday, CNN host Humpty Dumpty Brian Stelter attempted to virtue signal that Fox News hosts are not sharing “vaccine selfies” to help promote the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines. What business is it of Brian Stelter to complain about what hosts from other networks do? What a little Nancy he is.
Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that about 22 percent of the American population is fully vaccinated, and 187 million doses of vaccine have been given as of Monday.
So, little Brian Stelter goes off claiming “it is important to see all of the TV anchors, personalities showing themselves getting the shot,” even though millions of vaccine administrations per day are happening in the United States.
Then the George Costanza lookalike turned his attention to the importance of “vaccine selfies.” No, I’m not kidding.
“We’ve seen a lot of vaccine selfies from lots of folks at lots of different networks. It’s been really inspiring to see,” Stelter said. “The ‘Today’ show even brought the co-hosts outside for a live group vaccination this week.”
Forever with a rager about Fox News, Stelter mentioned MSNBC host Rachel Maddow getting the vaccine even though she spoke about fears of getting it, and then attacked Fox news hosts because they didn’t follow their Fake News counterparts.
“So, I say all of that to make the following point: Where are Tucker and Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham? Where is Ainsley Earhardt and Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade? Where are the biggest stars on Fox getting vaccinated?” Stelter whined.
“I get it is a personal choice between the hosts and their health care provider,” he continued. “But everybody else is doing it … all across television, all of those anchors are rolling up their sleeves.” So, if everybody else started doing drugs even though it was not their personal choice, Stelter would expect Fox hosts to do drugs too?
CNN complains that Fox News hosts aren’t posting vaccine selfies

Media Matters senior fellow Matt Gertz chimed in.
“Fox has a really unique responsibility here.” No, they really don’t. Getting the vaccine is a personal decision, and they shouldn’t be bullied on-air into showing off and virtue-signaling the event.
Gertz argued that by not being more vocal about COVID-19 vaccination, Fox News hosts “are raising questions about its effectiveness, raising questions about whether it is dangerous. That does a lot of damage.”
Okay, but what about the fact that one of CNN’s famous legal analysts just died from the vaccine at the age of 47? Midwin Charles, a legal analyst for CNN and MSNBC passed away after receiving Pfizer’s experimental mRNA. She joins thousands of other people who have reportedly died in the days and weeks after getting their experimental covid-19 vaccinations.
“Steve Doocy should get vaccinated live on ‘Fox and Friends,'” Gertz suggested, to which Stelter replied, “Absolutely.”
What if Doocy already got vaccinated before the Brian Stelters of the world decided to use the event to virtue-signal the world?
Stelter gets paid by CNN to attack Fox News week after week. Maybe it’s because the Fox network beats CNN in the ratings faithfully each week and so CNN president Jeff Zucker probably lost a bet and hired Stelter to be their Pit Bull.
It’s funny how CNN is now concerned with Fox News hosts not televising their flu shots, er, their COVID shots, when it was high-ranking Democrats that broadcast their distrust of the COVID vaccine last year when their TDS rose and they said they don’t trust the vaccine because it was created under Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.
During the 2020 campaign, Joe Biden speaking in Wilmington, Delaware last September after being briefed by health experts about the possibility of a vaccine sowed doubt about the vaccine in one of the most irresponsible ways.
“I trust vaccines, I trust scientists, but I don’t trust Donald Trump,” Biden said, “and at this moment, the American people can’t, either.”
So there you have it. The current President of the United States said that you shouldn’t trust the vaccine because of Donald Trump. He’ll now deny he said. He probably doesn’t remember saying it.
“I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump, and it would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and the reliability of whatever he’s talking about,” Harris said. “I will not take his word for it.”
“I’m not that confident, but my opinion doesn’t matter. I don’t believe the American people are that confident,” Cuomo said last October. “You’re going to say to the American people now, ‘Here’s a vaccine, it was new, it was done quickly, but trust this federal administration and their health administration that it’s safe’? We’re not 100 percent sure of the consequences? I think it’s going to be a very skeptical American public about taking the vaccine, and they should be!”
