Fox Host Encourages Viewers: Get Infected with Coronavirus

Pete Hegseth


The liability for  Fox News in any number of lawsuits for its coverage and spread of false information was bolstered today by Pete Hegseth.  Hegseth applauded Americans who were defying stay-at-home orders and other social distancing measures aimed at slowing the spread of the highly contagious COVID-19.


Fox News lawyers have told the network management they stand a great risk of being sued for spreading false and misleading information by surviving family members of Fox viewers that were persuaded by the network that there was never any danger.

 The ability to defend against these types of lawsuits was made much more challenging by Pete Hegseth, whose claim to fame up to now has been him claiming he hasn’t washed his hands in a decade urged viewers to go out and get infected by the deadly coronavirus.

Hegseth on a Fox News segment applauded Americans. They were defying stay-at-home orders and other social distancing measures aimed at slowing the spread of the highly contagious COVID-19, which is significantly more deadly than the flu….

 “I don’t love the ‘warrior’ talk, but I do think you are going to need that kind of ethos and that spirit to put freedom before fear… Listen, there’s a lot of anxiety, a lot of misinformation. The experts have been telling us, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die.”

More than 76,670 Americans have died from COVID-19, and 1,287,000 have been infected so far, but Hegseth, who has argued that “germs aren’t real,” urged viewers to go about their daily lives without fear of the virus.

“Now that we are learning more, herd immunity is our friend… Healthy people getting out there are going to have to have some courage. We’ve see courage; we’ll talk about it later, in Texas, where people are defying ridiculous orders. That takes courage, that’s not easy. So I think that spirit, too, its American spirit, frankly, is in full supply and ready to go.”

“If some of our experts and some of our leaders would just get out of their way; they are drunk on power… It’s time to open up. That’s my sense.”
