Neil Cavuto Begs Fox News Viewers to Get Vaccinated
”It’s not about left or right,“ immunocompromised host says after testing positive for COVID-19
“There are many like that all around us, and mine is not secret at Fox. But there are plenty of people around you, Howie, at Fox and all types of business environments who are susceptible to this kind of thing,” he said.
While Fox News has not issued a vaccine mandate for its workers, parent company Fox Corporation revealed last month that 90% of its employees across all its divisions have been vaccinated. Fox workers who are not vaccinated must take regular COVID-19 tests.
Yet the network has come under fire for its pundits’ attacks on the Biden Administration and other state and local governments that have implemented such mandates on government employees and requirements to show vaccination or negative COVID test proof to enter businesses and public events.
The issue has even divided contributors at the network. Hours prior to Cavuto’s “MediaBuzz” segment, Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe said on “Unfiltered with Dan Bongino” that she will not get vaccinated in protest of the Biden Administration. Meanwhile, Fox News medical expert Dr. Nicole Saphier criticized those who cited the COVID-related death of former State Sec. Colin Powell to challenge the efficacy of vaccines.
While Cavuto says he understands his viewers’ sentiments on mandates, he urged them to think about how their actions affect the most vulnerable. “Life is too short to be an ass. Life is way too short to be ignorant of the promise of something that is helping people worldwide,” he begged. “Stop the deaths. Stop the suffering. Please, get vaccinated. Please.“
