Did Dr. Fauci create Covid-19? Get ready for more dangerous nonsense from the racist dumbbells in your life. If you have yet to block Channel 10 on Nana’s TV, now would be a good time. From WashPo:
After facing intense scrutiny for planning to air a baseless conspiracy theory that infectious-disease expert Anthony S. Fauci helped to create the coronavirus, conservative TV broadcaster Sinclair Broadcast Group announced Saturday that it will delay the segment to edit the context of the claims.
So some version of this is apparently on the way. Sinclair Broadcasting owns 191 stations across the country and WJAR—Channel 10 News is the one poisoning minds here in Rhode Island.
The segment had been released earlier in the week on their website, with plans to air it on the local Sinclair stations, but was pulled Saturday after receiving considerable backlash.
A Sinclair spokesperson did not respond to requests from The Post for comment, but the company issued a statement saying that it is not “aligning with or endorsing the viewpoints” aired in the segment, but adding that it is “a supporter of free speech and a marketplace of ideas and viewpoints, even if incredibly controversial.”
