The American people – at least those who don’t watch Fox News – are learning the depths of the false and misleading information some Fox News hosts have been spewing. Now that #FoxNewsLiedAsPeopleDied trends on Twitter they’re finding out even more.
On Friday “The Daily Show” posted this video of Fox News’ top stars and many other conservatives, like President Donald Trump and Rep. Devin Nunes, making astonishingly false claims.
Hannity. Rush. Dobbs. Ingraham. Pirro. Nunes. Tammy. Geraldo. Doocy. Hegseth. Schlapp. Siegel. Watters. Dr. Drew. Henry. Ainsley. Gaetz. Inhofe. Pence. Kudlow. Conway. Trump.

Today, on social media, Americans are expressing anger and outrage about how Fox News has handled its solemn duty to properly and factually inform the American people, especially in the face of a deadly worldwide pandemic – a duty many feel it has not only ignored, but downright twisted into a politicization of the coronavirus to pursue an agenda of supporting President Trump.
And they’re also railing against conservative elected officials and pundits in general for the false claims they’ve made about coronavirus.
Fox News reportedly is “worried about legal action after misleading viewers about coronavirus.”
Take a look at what some are saying:

Ladies & Gentlemen,@TheDailyShow shows us exactly how dangerous & inept Trump & his state run media, @FoxNews truly is. All we have to do is play their own words. #TrumpOwnsEveryDeath #FoxNewsLies #FoxNewsLiedAsPeopleDied https://t.co/8Brm1IRWmD

Trump threw away the pandemic playbook. He ignored the intel briefings in January and February. He downplayed the threat. He kept holding rallies.

Yes. #FoxNewsLiedAsPeopleDied is 100% accurate. Also it is heart breaking how many families have been devastated by the divisions between family members created by the lies Fox propagated over the years. It is a cancer on the American way of life.

#FoxNewsLiedAsPeopleDied and the problem is deeper than just a few ignorant anchormen.
They only got scared once they realized that their viewers are the ones who are more likely to die. pic.twitter.com/hT9KhkolUO

The conservative right in this country has, for decades, railed against science, knowledge, and expertise. It’s no surprise that they helped spread lies about COVID-19 as well. #FoxNewsLiedAsPeopleDied https://t.co/NrKH8ndFcB

It wasn’t just Trump.
Fox sent its viewers to die. #FoxNewsLiedAsPeopleDied

The horrible fact is that Fox News & Trump’s administration worked together to politicize the coronavirus — calling it a hoax and a democrat conspiracy — for an entire month while the rest of the world & reputable news outlets tried to warn us.#FoxNewsLiedAsPeopleDied https://t.co/e9WRNzML0V
