Yeah, we can only say Tucker Carlson is an immoral white supremacist prick so many times. I really can't wait for him to go the way of Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck, and slip into obscurity just like all the other embarrassed demagogues.

That's unusual. Normally he hedges his lies by "just asking questions."

You see, if you tell a flat out bald faced lie, but inflect it with a whiny upward pitch at the end of the lie, it's not really a lie.

Infected people who are vaccinated spread the virus in exactly the same way as infected people who aren't vaccinated. It is technically true.

Just leaves out the part that vaccinated people are far less likely to get infected in the first place.

It's a lie.


Anyone that has any viral load coursing through their body is capable of spreading that virus through the usual means. The vaccine helps the body fight it.

The vaccine lowers the risk of death and/or severity to the vaccinated individual. Maybe shortens that window of transmissibility.  But while the vaccinated person has the virus, they're still capable of transmission.

Data from COVID-19 tests in the United States, the United Kingdom and Singapore are showing that vaccinated people who become infected with Delta SARS-CoV-2 can carry as much virus in their nose as do unvaccinated people.

Why else do you think we had to all start wearing masks again?

From your link:

However, vaccinated people with Delta might remain infectious for a shorter period, according to researchers in Singapore who tracked viral loads for each day of COVID-19 infection among people who had and hadn't been vaccinated. Delta viral loads were similar for both groups for the first week of infection, but dropped quickly after day 7 in vaccinated people

Doesn't sound exactly the same to me. Surprise, Tucker was lying. Again.

There are laws governing defrauding the elderly and mentally deficient in all states. Fox news needs to be prosecuted.
 
2021-10-21 7:11:09 PM  
Not to mention, an unvaccinated person is more likely to be symptomatic. That means coughing and sneezing. If they are in public, they're more likely to be mobile covid suicide bombers blasting covid out with every cough or sneeze.

According to the ACLU, pushing Neo-Nazi conspiracy theories on national TV regularly until they become accepted is perfectly fine, and in accordance with the 1st Amendment.

/which is why I don't donate to the ACLU

No, its to get people to cancel cable and say that Fox News is the reason. They get most of their revenue from carriage fees. The only channel that earns more per subscriber is ESPN.

Yes. You can lie with a true statement. He wants his audience to interpret his statement  to mean that the risk of transmission is the same whether a subject is vaccinated or not.

A lie is a moral act. He's lying by implication.

Seems to be a little of both according to this one recent Nature article:
https://www.nature.com/articles/d4158​6​-021-02689-y

Vaccination reduces transmission initially. People with breakthrough infections are less likely to transmit than unvaccinated infected, as long as the vaccinated people have good antibody levels.
However protection wanes over time. In this study, 3 months after vaccination, people with the AZ shot who had breakthroughs transmitted just like unvaccinated. Pfizer recipients demonstrated a small reduction still. Moderna was not in the study but is probably better as it holds up better over time than Pfizer.

They are still obviously less likely to *get* sick, and you can't spread if you're not infected. Plus of course they're usually infectious for less time.

"We already established [Tucker Carlson] was wrong," he says after starting this discussion by arguing that Tucker Carlson was right.

You suck at backpedaling and goalpost shifting. I'll add it to the list of things you suck at.
 
2021-10-21 11:49:02 PM  
Wait, doesn't that count as "technically correct"? I mean, they spread it the same way technically, a person with the virus transmits some through the air...

Of course that's more like him being accidentally correct, because that's not what he meant to say.
