Dr. Jonathan Reiner
, a CNN
medical analyst, chastised Tucker Carlson
on Friday for his frequently criticized, irresponsible coverage of COVID-19
And the cardiologist confronted the Fox News
host with a damning question.
Reiner asked on Twitter
, "Is the coronavirus
one of his sponsors?"
Carlson appears hellbent on allowing COVID to continue for as long as possible. He's "questioned" the safety of vaccines
, and now he claims masks
are dangerous. He never seems to have an actual expert on his show to discuss it. Is the coronavirus one of his sponsors? https://t.co/kYC4DuaLgh

Reiner wrote, "Carlson appears hellbent on allowing COVID to continue for as long as possible."
“He's 'questioned' the safety of vaccines, and now he says masks are dangerous. Somehow, he never seems to have an actual expert on his show to discuss these issues,” he added.
Carlson has repeatedly used his conservative network's most-watched prime-time show to cast doubt on the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 shots and public health
measures aimed at containing the virus's spread.
Only yesterday, during a rant about first lady Jill Biden
, he threw in an anti-vaccine remark.
