Is Fox News making the coronavirus outbreak worse?

Fox News hosts, ignoring the consensus advice of public health experts, have been a primary force in spreading misinformation about the coronavirus outbreak. A rigorous study by economists from the University of Chicago suggests that Fox News host Sean Hannity helped spread the coronavirus through his show. Fox News hosts have been leading voices in calling for the country to reopen despite few states meeting the benchmark set out by the Trump administration for reopening. However, Hannity and other Fox News hosts have defended their work, saying they are merely presenting information and allowing the audience to decide for themselves.

Defenders of Fox News characterize the criticism as a matter of professional jealousy or hysteria. However, to be clear, public health experts warn that many of the ideas talked about on Fox News go against the best practices we know work to stop pandemics.
