Summary, etc.:
While other leaders were marshaling resources to combat the greatest pandemic in modern history, President Donald Trump was watching TV. Trump watches over six hours of Fox News a day, a habit his staff refers to as 'executive time.' In January 2020, when Fox News began to downplay COVID-19, the President was quick to agree. In March, as the deadly virus spiraled out of control, Sean Hannity mocked 'coronavirus hysteria' as a 'new hoax' from the left. Millions of Americans took Hannity and Trump's words as truth, until some of them started to get sick. Here, CNN anchor and chief media correspondent Brian Stelter tells the twisted story of the relationship between Donald Trump and Fox News.
