Telling anti-waxers to get a jab should not be controversial – even Fox News does | Arwa Mahdawi

Csomeone please run over to hell and see if it has frozen over? You see, I’ve just found myself nodding to Fox News. On Sunday, Fox News personality Neil Cavuto pleaded viewers to “throw away political views” and get vaccinated. “Life is too short to be a donkey,” he said, adding that he expected to be attacked for his views.

Telling people to get vaccinated during a pandemic should not be controversial. Cavuto’s employers have worked overtime to ensure that this is the case. A recent analysis of a media surveillance dog was found 60% of Fox News summer program included allegations that undermined vaccinations. While Fox has intensified anti-waxer propaganda, it has also quietly maintained its own strict vaccination and testing policy. Nearly 90% of full-time employees of Fox Corporation have been vaccinated reported last month. The company has also said it will do so soon implement daily Covid tests for employees who have not had it.

It has become depressingly clear that we will not end this pandemic by relying on everyone doing what is best for the greater good. If we want any hope of getting back to normal, we need strict vaccine and testing requirements – as Fox, despite its stance on freedom, clearly recognizes. There are heated debates around the world on how to implement this. Indonesia has made vaccines mandatory, with large fines for refuseniks. Although it seems unlikely that most countries will go that far, vaccine mandates for people as government employees and healthcare staff has been implemented in the USA, Australia, France and – as of November 11 – in England. They should be just as good. There is nothing controversial about demanding that people be inoculated; vaccination requirements for school and travel have been in place for decades. If you are marching on the street to protest against “tyranny” to be forced to consider other people, please take a step. Even Fox News hosts think you’re an asshole.
