[See NewsBusters for more.] Oh, NOW CBS is concerned with vaccine skepticism? This Morning hosts and reporters on Friday fretted that Americans, particularly African Americans and Hispanics, might be resistant to taking the newly-approved COVID vaccine. Yet nowhere in the segment did Gayle King or reporter Adriana Diaz remind viewers that Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris indulged in anti-science, anti-vaccine propaganda during the campaign. King opened the segment by worrying, “The FDA could approve emergency authorization, rather, for Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine as soon as today. But no vaccine will be effective if the people don't take it. In our series Vaccinating America, we're looking at coronavirus vaccine hesitancy, is what it’s called. 60 percent of Americans said they would definitely or probably get a vaccine. But another survey shows only 14% of black Americans and 34 percent of Latinos trust that it will be safe.”
