In March, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson were two of the first major media personalities to endorse mask usage as an effective way to slow the spread of COVID-19. But as soon as the U.S. CDC switched sides and endorsed mask usage, they both switched sides to oppose the CDC.
This is a blatant example of them focusing on being contrarian to generate views and controversy instead of focusing on the truth and informing their viewers.
Tucker Carlson on 3/30: “Of course, masks work. Everyone knows that. Dozens of research papers have proved it…Asia—where coronavirus has been kept under control—masks were key.”
Laura Ingraham from Fox News in a nutshell:
3/23 when experts against masks: "MUST WEAR MASKS"
4/28 after experts recommend masks: they're "SOCIAL CONTROL" via "FEAR AND INTIMIDATION"
My mask protects you, your mask protects me.
Please wear one to save lives & restore jobs. https://t.co/NGCk2TLuHp
