how crazy do you have to be? - Andrea Mitchell

From Meet the Press

There are people in the south taking horse deworming medication, not the vaccines, but horse deworming medication for Covid because they heard about it on another network from two prominent anchors like, like hydroxychloroquine. I mean, how crazy do you have to be? So they're calling poison control because they're taking this crazy thing for Covid and killing themselves or getting themselves sick. But they won't take what will actually -- -- prevent at least serious illness and hospitalization.

He is the anchor of one of the most popular network news shows. The people on the right hate him and all mainstream media.

Do I agree with his and his editors slant on news? Of course they don’t always reflect my opinions. But most Americans don’t agree with my opinions.

So I watch to learn what most Americans are watching.

This cartoon satirises the 19th century fear of vaccination of the French public. It shows a diseased woman turning into a mermaid, a physician riding a cow and an apothecary wielding a syringe forming a grotesque procession that scares children...............................................................In Bodily Matters: The anti-vaccination movement in England, 1853–1907, Nadja Durbach argues that anti-vaccination protestors in the 19th century were largely working class, and that their protest was about feeling like second-class citizens without self-determination over their own bodies, as well as about a divide between an elite establishment and a community lacking trust in them.
