    The hosts of "Fox & Friends Weekend" on Saturday suggested that warnings from public health officials about the emergence of the new omicron variant of the coronavirus could be an attempt to distract from several challenges President Biden is facing.

    "There's always a new variant," co-host Will Cain said.

    "And there's always a new variant," Pete Hegseth, the show's third co-host, said as well. "Count on a new variant every October." "We're going to need to a new variant here," he joked. "My God."

    Well, nothing really new here.... completely irresponsible journalism... Wait? Did I just imply Faux and Friends was journalism?? Ha Ha ... My bad... 3 goofballs with microphones is not journalism.

    Amazing how Joe was able to get Israel to play along by shutting their entire country down over something he made up.... Don't play Liar's Poker with him because the old man is on FIRE!!!

    Also, somebody might need to explain to these people that it's NOT October... also that any new variant is NOT a positive for the administration....

    Bunch of idiots... at least some on Faux News are finally, meekly, stepping up and calling some of the bullshit on this network for what it is?? Anybody gonna call this episode out??

    Someone should do the world a favour and sue the backside out of Faux “news” Murdoch always has been an unethical slime bag but his politicisation of Covid and vaccines has harmed large swathes of humanity

    I'm a bit confused.... this thread was started in Current Events, but a mod moved it to PO & B...

    Why exactly?

    True, this news out of Fox and Friends contained their stupid opinion(s), but TheHill article I used to start the thread simply reported those stupid opinions as news... and dangerous, lying news.... and it's Current.

    If that's the definition of PO & B, 95% of everything on "Current Events" is opinion, isn't it? If Lindsey Graham came out today and said he thought Joe Biden should be hung over Afghanistan (his opinion), and I open a thread from any source reporting that as news, is THAT an opinion piece?? I think not....

    Yeah, I'm a little ticked at that.... does it show?

    They don't watch FOX News to get facts. They watch it because it reports along the same slant they themselves have. Ditto for CNN viewers.

    I don't watch that program. Is it one of those political opinion shows? Both parties are milking Covid for what its worth.

    I don't either. I assume it's in the neighborhood of 99% "entertainment", but any type of show can make actual news with dangerous and/or lying opinions...

    From what I see, people are okay with misleading information as long as it is against the other party. People are taking turns being the pot and the kettle.

    Ronny Jackson called it the MTE, Mid Term Election variant. And he is supposed to be a MD. That's how far off track the Trump party has swayed.

    He IS an MD... Moronic Dumbass...

    Think of some of the people Texas has elected to public office..... He actually fits right in... ONLY place in the US somebody that dumb would be elected...

    I'm still scratching my head how ANYBODY thinks Biden coming up with a fake variant would have been a good thing for him?? His #1 goal was to make COVID a thing of the past... This wouldn't be that....

    It's not only a lie, it's a nonsensical lie, which offends me even more than a regular lie...

    And Ronnie Jackson actually claims to be a doctor??? I wonder who took his exams for him, clearly he's as dumb as a block of wood.

    When you have MAGA’s “interpreting” rules you should expect partisan hackery.

    It is most unfortunate

    Fox &Friends are apparently not too observant as Bidens current problems are shared by most of the world, high inflation, gas prices way up, heating costs way up product shortages due to shipping issues. Most if not all of the modern world is plagued by these same issues.

    That would require the right having even remote knowledge of what is going on in the rest of the world — which they do not have nor do they want to have.

    These yahoos are doubling down on stupidity. They are redundant and predictable with politics being their only concern.

    Murdoch hasn’t been in control of Fox News since 2015. And “NEWSFLASH” Fox News has been left leaning for quite a while now

    Let's hope that it is going to be less deadly. Myself, I'll wait for the scientific data that will come out in a few weeks before I make a judgement. I definitely won't trust Trumpers' "theories" of the omicron virulence or mortality rate, after they claimed original covid was just like the flu. Almost 800,000 deaths later.....

    And the South African doctors too? BTW wasn't it you that posted a 100 post that taking Ivermectin was useless and well you know only a moron would :) So now you are questioning African Doctors as to the severity of the new puny flu :)

    All things considered past and present I think people would do well to listen to fox then people that push disinformation!

    Hammering Fox is like viagra to the left and this liberal circle jerk of a thread proves it. Also, can someone prove Fox is wrong here? And ya wanna know who’s been wrong for the last two years? Fauci and all the left wing scientists who are paid to tell us we’re all going to die. Democrats probably borrowed those scientists from their global warming research where they say we’re all going to die.
