Should disseminating COVID disinformation on public venues be illegal? [View all]


Television, radio.

Today I listened to a pair of a.m. radio hate jocks on a nationally syndicated show spewing whacko conspiracy theories and false statistics about vaccination and it's effectiveness.

I know people personally who listen to this garbage, and refuse to get vaccinated or wear masks because of it.

What's the sense of spending massive amounts on public service ads encouraging people to get vaccinated and mask up, these ads run for 30 seconds, and then these soulless hate whores pound their lies into the ears of the gullible for hours at a time?

I don't see any headway being made in the drive to get most Americans vaccinated unless this is dealt with.
