Talk show host Tucker Carlson does not trust the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. Carlson called the effort “false” and “too slick” during his show on Wednesday.

“This stuff is great,” Carlson said. “A lot of famous people say so. Just the other day, the guy who played Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings series got the vaccine. As on any media tour, the paparazzi were there for the dramatic moment when they stuck the needle in his arm.”

Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence received the coronavirus vaccine during a White House event aimed at convincing skeptical Americans that the vaccines are safe. Pence’s wife, Karen, and Surgeon General Jerome Adams also got the vaccine on Friday.

“So how are the rest of us supposed to respond to a marketing campaign like this?” Carlson said. “Nervously, if you are strongly supportive of vaccines, and we are. Even if you recognize how many lives have been saved because of vaccines, and we do. It all seems a bit much, it feels false because it is, it’s too slick.”

He called out philanthropist Melinda Gates for a CNN interview in which she said it was important to target misinformation.

The Food and Drug Administration said shipments of Moderna’s vaccine will begin this weekend if the FDA grants emergency use authorization.

Fox News and Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo have debuted a new FOX Nation special that investigates the relationship between U.S. financial markets and the Chinese Communist Party.

The three-part series was published on the streaming platform Thursday. It will feature interviews with Hayman Capital founder and Chief Investment Officer Kyle Pass, RWR Advisory Group President and CEO Roger Robinson, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and author Gordan Chang about how retirement funds may potentially be funding the CCP.

“I’m really excited about this documentary,” Bartiromo said while appearing on the Fox News midday show America’s Newsroom. “(There are) hundreds of Chinese companies trading on our public exchanges. And that is basically allowing investors, American investors, to fund the expansion of our number one adversary.

“And interestingly, it’s even government employees. Remember the thrift fund. This is the 401K plan for government employees. There was a huge portion of that going into Chinese companies. It’s amazing to me that government employees — the military — would want to put their retirement money into companies that may very well be producing the next drone, the next weapon, that could be put against Americans.”

As CNN prepares to host the first presidential debate next week, a new poll shows it should expect a big audience for the made-for-TV event.

A poll conducted by Puck News and Echelon Insights shows that 63% of respondents plan to watch the first debate on Thursday, June 27th. The poll was conducted between June 10th and 12th, and included more than 1,000 respondents.

Of those asked about the debate, 46% said they expected former President Donald Trump (R) to perform better than President Joe Biden (D). 37% thought Biden would be the top performer, while 17% were undecided.

Additionally, 56% of those polled said they would like to see independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. be allowed to participate in the June event. Due to the rules agreed upon by the Biden and Trump campaigns, Kennedy has until Thursday, June 20th to eclipse 15% in a national poll to be included in the debate. As of this publication, he has yet to garner that support.

The June 27th event will not only be available on CNN. Both ABC News and PBS have joined the network as simulcast partners for the 90-minute debate.

Respondents in the poll were also asked about where they get their news. 50% said from local TV outlets. In cable news, 37% said Fox News, 36% said ABC News, and 35% said CNN, before outlets like MSNBC, NBC News, CBS News, Newsmax, and OAN.
