Laura Ingraham Wants to Give You the Freedom to Die From Coronavirus - 2020-04-10
Laura Ingraham wants you to have the unrestricted freedom to spread or die from the coronavirus.
Over the past several months, Fox News has been an important platform for those seeking to mock expert opinions on the virus, downplay the outbreak's lethality, and spread anecdotal claims about how to fight it. All seemingly in the service of either absolving President Trump of any potential responsibility for the pandemic's U.S. toll or to fulfill the network's single-note, decades-long crusade to blame anything and everything on Democrats and "the media."
But few personalities have approached the global pandemic with as little concern as Ingraham, the longtime conservative pundit with a coveted primetime Fox News spot and one of the most-viewed shows on the network. In front of an audience of millions every evening, Ingraham has displayed a commitment to dismissing concerns about the virus, mocking advice from doctors she disagrees with, and waving away the importance of coronavirus deaths.
