While two of Fox News’ celebrity presenters and their guests have questioned vaccination efforts, the station has also produced its own vaccine PSA, a 30-second commercial starring presenters and presenters Steve Doocy, Harris Faulkner, Dana Perino and John Roberts . “If you can, get the vaccine,” said Ms. Faulkner in the ad.
Fox News’ main political anchor Bret Baier said in an Instagram post that he was “grateful” for the shot. In May, the presenters of “Fox & Friends” spoke on-air of their “relief” from the vaccination. And Ms. Faulkner held a prime-time special in February that was partly aimed at debunking “general myths” about the vaccine.
