CNN anchor Brianna Keilar was seriously triggered to rage against Fox News, host Tucker Carlson, and his guest former New York Times writer Alex Berenson who is a critic of COVID vaccines for spreading what she called anti-science “BS” that is “killing people.”

On Wednesday morning’s edition of “New Day,” Keilar attacked Fox News after noting that we are all sick of the pandemic while showing a clip from commentator Bari Weiss who told HBO host Bill Maher that she was “done” with COVID and called restrictions a “catastrophic moral crime.” Keilar seemed to be blaming Weiss, who is a liberal, for spurring the viral controversy.

“Sure would be nice if COVID were done with us, too,” Keilar sarcastically commented. “Done with hospitals, done with the doctors and the nurses who are stretched to their breaking points in many cases.”

She then proceeded to lay blame on the unvaccinated for the continuation of the pandemic by claiming that we are not done with it because “so many people are still actively choosing not to be vaccinated.”

Keilar also leveled blame at “clowns like this [who] are given platforms to sell their disinformation to millions,” referring to Berenson who appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show.

She then played clips of Berenson telling Carlson why he believes that the mRNA COVID vaccines are “ineffective,” harmful, and should be pulled off the market.

“We’re at a very dangerous moment, Tucker, and I’m not exaggerating. I think this is probably the most important appearance I’ve had with you in the last two years. It is completely clear now that the vaccines don’t really work at all against Omicron. In these highly-vaccinated and highly boosted countries, rates of infection are incredibly high and rates of serious disease and death are also rising,” Berenson told Carlson.

“The mRNA COVID vaccines need to be withdrawn from the market,” he asserted. “No one should get them. No one should get boosted. No one should get double boosted. They are a dangerous and ineffective product at this point.”

Keilar took great joy in reporting that Berenson had been banned on Twitter months ago. She remarked that “he’s lying there about the vaccine and the protection that it provides. But Fox, Fox has had this mad non-scientist on all pandemic.”

She then rattled off statistics and cherry-picked scientific information that crowed over the efficacy of vaccines while claiming that the highest cases and hospitalization rates were in red states, run by Republican governors. Following that, she returned to savaging Fox News some more, taking a poke at hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham in the process.

“The network spent the past 24 hours up in arms over the Biden administration’s decision to restrict the use of two monoclonal antibody treatments, treatments that are proven not to work against the Omicron variant, according to the FDA,” Keilar remarked.

“None of the coverage at Fox Entertainment, of course, is aimed at the real and most urgent issue, which is people not getting the protection of the vaccine,” Keilar stated, claiming that “anti-vaxxers are just fine with getting COVID treatments. Amazing miracles of science, once they get COVID and they are staring down the odds, but they don’t want the vaccine, also a miracle of science.”

The CNN anchor concluded by saying, “Again, the daily double question is why is Rupert Murdoch, who was one of the first to get vaccinated, allowing this anti-science BS on the air? Because it is killing people. But, you know, ratings. And that is the ultimate moral crime.”

People were not impressed with Keilar trying to promote herself by attacking Fox News and those who choose not to get vaccinated:
