CNN’s Oliver Darcy is obsessed with FOX News. He talks about it constantly on Twitter, and his talk is almost completely negative.
Now he is using the Coronavirus to stoke distrust of FOX News and other conservative media figures and outlets.
He writes at CNN:
New polls show effect of right-wing media’s dismissive and conspiratorial coronavirus coverage
Gallup’s poll, conducted between March 3 and 13, found that only 42% of Republicans were “very worried” or “somewhat worried” about the virus. In comparison, 73% of Democrats expressed that level of concern.
Pew Research, which conducted its survey from March 10 to 16, found that 83% of Republicans who consumed only a diet of outlets with right-leaning audiences believed the news media had exaggerated the risks of the virus. That number was 30% higher than Democrats who consumed only outlets with left-leaning audiences.
More specifically, Pew Research found that 79% of people who said they turned to Fox News for their news believed the media had exaggerated the risks of the virus.
This is what he really cares about:

Darcy is the right-hand-man of Brian Stelter, who is also obsessed with FOX News:

People see right through this:
Rubbish. The problem is the MSM lost credibility long ago with the lies and propaganda. Suddenly now you want us to believe the network that lied for so long.
