Fox's Cavuto urges viewers not to take drug like Trump
NEW YORK Fox News Channel anchor Neil Cavuto strongly urged viewers on Monday not to follow the example of President Donald Trump, who revealed that he is taking a malaria drug to protect against the coronavirus. Trump said he has been taking the drug hydroxychloroquine for about a week and a half. The president, and some Fox News personalities, had earlier promoted the drug as a potential treatment for COVID-19, but the government has warned of potentially fatal side effects. He warned viewers in vulnerable health that they could face serious consequences if they followed the presidents example. Earlier this spring, the network was initially reluctant to criticize Trump following a news conference where he suggested injections of disinfectant could potentially help coronavirus victims.
Shepard Smith leaves Fox News Channel
Shepard Smith, whose newscast on Fox News Channel seemed increasingly an outlier on a network dominated by supporters of President Donald Trump , abruptly quit after signing off his final newscast on Friday. On Thursday, the president cited Smith and Fox analysts Andrew Napolitano and Donna Brazile in a tweet that said, "Fox News doesn't deliver for US anymore. While he often angered many of Fox's conservative viewers, Smith's work was most prominently cited by the network when it received criticism for being too partisan. On his afternoon newscast, Smith had frequently given tough reports debunking statements made by Trump and his supporters even the Fox News opinion hosts that rule the network's prime-time lineup. Smith, 55, said he is not retiring, although his agreement with Fox will forbid him from working elsewhere "at least in the near future."chicagotribune.com
