Who knew Fox Business talking head Maria Bartiromo is still pushing anti-vax conspiracy theories and touting unproven medications like ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine as “effective” COVID-19 treatments?
p.s. they aren’t…
The heavy-handed interview, which saw Bartiromo spin conspiracies related to the Covid vaccines and other drugs she claimed are “effective” treatments, began with her blasting President Joe Biden and suggesting one reason the public still doesn’t know the origins of the Covid-19 virus is because he is “compromised” by China.
Bartiromo declared, “Well, there were also all these lies around the emergency authorization.”
“They needed the emergency authorization to get the vaccines down everybody’s throats. But in order to do that, they had to prove that there was nothing else on the market that could actually treat COVID. When we all know ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine were effective, weren’t they?” Bartiromo asked.
You’ll notice that Paul sidesteps the question about hydroxychloroquine and horse paste. And there WERE other treatments approved for use before the vaccines including remdesivir.
As the Associated Press reported in 2022, the FDA revoked a previous emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine in June 2020 saying emerging data suggested it was “unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19 for the authorized uses in the EUA.”
Currently, the National Institutes of Health recommend against the use of ivermectin for treating the disease, except in clinical trials, as studies to date have not demonstrated efficacy for the anti-parasitic drug.
In fact, earlier this week I reported on one man who used ivermectin on a regular basis, and many believe he died from the veterinary anti-parasitic.
Note: Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) got his COVID-19 vaccine as soon as he could, even posting a photo on social media of him getting the jab.

There were lots of Fox viewers that took Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine that couldn’t be reached for comment.

Not only are they peddling three absolute falsehoods about effective approaches to COVID they’re also omitting the fact Trump is the one who granted emergency authorization back in 2020.

I don’t see a problem here. @FoxNews should also tell their viewers the benefits of smoking, heavy consumption of bacon and the perils of wearing seatbelts.
