Fox News Hosts Switch Sides On COVID-19 Mask Debate (Tucker Carlson & Laura Ingraham)

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.
