See the video above from Fox News. It is a shining example of how to tell the truth about the Ebola virus. Fox News’ own Shepard Smith finally takes to task his own fellow employees and commentators. Many of them have begun talking like truthers or birthers in their commentary on Ebola. The Director of the CDC has been accused of deliberately lying. The President has been accused of wanting Americans to die. Despite the fact that Ebola has come into this country via airlines, it has been openly said that illegal immigrants are going to carry Ebola over through our southern border. This is simply a ramp up on terrorists coming through our southern border.
The danger is, as Shepard Smith points out, that the false information given out for purely political purposes will actually inhibit the USA abilities to deal with any possible future outbreak of Ebola in this country. In passing, those are not my words, those are his words. Fox News, of course, will tell you that their non-news programs are actually entertainment programs and thus do not have the same rigid standards as their news division. But, as Shepard Smith points out, that approach is dangerous to this country and dangerous to the handling of any future outbreak of a dangerous disease. We often forget that Fox News is merely the name of the network and not a description of all their shows. Their news shows are actually rather limited; their editorial shows are common.
Please watch the video above, and listen to a true journalist address the subject of Ebola.
