Fox News Tucker Carlson Interviews Robert F. Kennedy Jr. – Why is Raising Questions About Vaccines a No Go?
Conservative Fox News host Tucker Carlson had Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on his show last night (7/10/17). Acknowledging that Kennedy is a "liberal democrat" Carlson asked Kennedy why he was being attacked by other liberals for promoting vaccine safety. Kennedy acknowledged that skepticism towards big corporate power, like pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies is typically a liberal position, but that it is different when it comes to vaccines. He mentioned that the CDC has been characterized by at least four federal studies as a "cesspool of corruption" because of its entanglements with the vaccine industry, and this is the government agency that is supposed to be overseeing vaccine safety. Kennedy goes on to explain that there is very little safety testing on vaccines, like there is on other pharmaceutical products. Carlson echoed his opinion that he believes in vaccines, but that there should be discussions allowed about vaccine safety and that these discussions should not be censored in the media.
