CNN Health Expert Says National Proof-of-Vaccine System Needed

Nope. Not going to happen.

Published

on

If you were to ask the unvaccinated exactly why they’ve chosen not to be inoculated against COVID-19, there are a great many answers that you would hear, but many sharing a common theme.

Some simply don’t believe that the coronavirus pandemic is that big of a deal.  Others fear that allowing the US government to dictate what we put into our bodies in this instance could create a slippery slope for later.  Then there are those who have little faith in the efficacy of the vaccines on account of the speed with which they were developed.

And, thanks to the nature of this grand distrust, any move by the government to further push these vaccines is regarded as unacceptable.

That’s why the latest suggestion by one of CNN’s medical analysts is raising eyebrows.

CNN medical contributor Dr. Leana Wen argued Wednesday on CNN’s “Newsroom” for a “national proof of vaccination system,” which she said should be more elaborate than “pieces of paper that can be easily faked.”

Wen was dead serious.

Wen said, “Well, I hope that President Biden will do three really important things. First is to mandate vaccinations on planes and trains, places that he has jurisdiction over. There are a lot of people who are still on the fence about getting vaccinated. If they know, they have to be vaccinated in order to travel to see friends and family, to do business travel, et cetera, that can really put them over the edge.”

She continued, “The second thing is we really need to get behind a proof of vaccination system. We know that the honor code doesn’t work. You don’t board a plane. You don’t go to the airport and say I am who I say I am. I don’t have to show you any identification. We don’t allow that, and we shouldn’t allow people to carry around pieces of paper that can be easily faked. We need a national proof of vaccination system.”

The news comes as the delta variant continues to dominate the case count here in the United States, and with the new, possibly antibody-resistant “mu” strain now appearing in 49 of 50 states.

Giuliani Jilted: Fox News Bans Rudy and Son from Appearing on Network

This, after Rudy was integral in bringing Fox News to the mainstream.

Published

on

In the latest bit of fallout from Donald Trump’s first term as President, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has been banned by Fox News.

Giuliani, who served as the personal attorney for Donald Trump during much of his presidency, is currently in legal limbo, having lost his ability to practice law in New York while facing a rather sizable defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems.

Now, as many continue to wonder how much influence Trump will have on the future of the Republican Party, Giuliani has taken a major publicity hit.

Prior to a scheduled appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Sept. 11, “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Pete Hegseth apparently called the former New York City mayor the night before and apologized, telling him he had been canceled from their guest list.

The decision was particularly troubling for Rudy.

A source close to the former New York City mayor told Playbook that Giuliani was upset by the decision because he had “done a big favor” for Fox Corp. founder and Chairman Rupert Murdoch.

“He was instrumental in getting Fox on Time Warner so it could be watched in New York City,” the source told Playbook.

Giuliani’s son Andrew is also reportedly banned from the network, although no official reasoning has been given for either action.

CNN’s Cuomo Accused of Heinous Sexual Assault, Complete with Tone-Deaf Apology

As of this writing, Cuomo is still employed by CNN.

Published

on

Just months after his brother finally succumbed to heavy public pressure to resign as Governor of New York, Chris Cuomo is now facing similar accusations of sexual misconduct stemming from  workplace incident in 2005.

Andrew Cuomo, the disgraced Empire State Lawmaker, was accused by no less than 9 women of sexual abuse, assault, and harassment during his time in the governor’s mansion.  During the public fallout, it was determined that he had reached out to his brother Chris Cuomo, the CNN anchor, in order to pool PR resources – something that the younger Cuomo apologized for on-air.

One has to wonder what sort of apology is on the horizon now.

In a guest essay for the New York Times, former executive producer Shelley Ross outlined an incident where Cuomo, who came under fire this year for giving private advice to his brother New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo during his sexual harassment scandal, squeezed the cheek of her buttock without her permission in 2005. She also produced an email where Chris Cuomo appeared to admit to the incident and apologize for his behavior.

“At the time, I was the executive producer of an ABC entertainment special, but I was Mr. Cuomo’s executive producer at ‘Primetime Live’ just before that,” she wrote. “I was at the party with my husband, who sat behind me on an ottoman sipping his Diet Coke as I spoke with work friends. When Mr. Cuomo entered the Upper West Side bar, he walked toward me and greeted me with a strong bear hug while lowering one hand to firmly grab and squeeze the cheek of my buttock.”

Cuomo’s apology email has also been heavily criticized, as it appears to show more defense to Ross’ husband than to her.

Cuomo, who was 34 at the time of the alleged incident, asked Ross to pass along an apology to her “very good and noble husband,” and also “I apologize to you as well, for even putting you in su]ch a position.” He added he would remember his lesson the next time he was happy to see her.
