The Hill reports:
Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy penned an editorial on the conservative network’s website on Tuesday praising President Biden for how he has handled the coronavirus pandemic and urging Americans to get vaccinated against the virus.
“Six months into his administration, President Joe Biden should be applauded for making a huge dent in the COVID pandemic,” Ruddy wrote. “He inherited an effective vaccine from President Donald Trump, took it into his arms, and ran with it.”
“At Newsmax, we have strongly advocated for the public to be vaccinated. The many medical experts who have appeared on our network have been near unanimous in support of the vaccine,” Ruddy said. “I myself have gotten the Pfizer vaccine.”

Sounds like someone is either facing extreme backlash from lawsuits or the threat of a rapidly decreasing viewership … or both … or jeez, any number of reasons to actually back the science.
Also of note, I love to see/read that someone who is associated with extreme right-wing news is giving props where props are due. Meanwhile, you have people railing against Biden, because he can’t find his way out of a paper bag or he’s can’t remember his dentures before he leaves his house in the morning. Biden may not be a speaking powerhouse. But he’s not a bad guy doing bad things. He just so happens to be associated with what people have been told to hate, so they hate him.
Scapegoaters gotta scapegoat.
I read nuanced comments on Breitbart explaining the reason for the uptick in vaccine recipients among right wingers is because they don’t blindly follow the leaders like democrats do. Dudes, I hate to burst your bubbles, but as soon as the Trump admin announced the vaccines, I was on board! As everyone should have. And I particularly didn’t like anything about Mr. Trump. I could give two shits about Biden. I don’t wave a Biden flag like these so-called individuals with no allegiance to their leader. I don’t even care that Biden is president, if not for it’s not that last shit head. What I care about is that we share common sense knowledge about simple information and actions that we can do to live in solidarity with our fellow human beings.
There was an a dude on Newsmax just last week talking about how vaccines are against nature and are defying God’s will for weeding out the weak.
