Host and interviewer Linsey Davis was blatantly hostile from the moment she started presenting Kennedy to her audience, referring to him as a member of the "political royalty" – this type of rhetoric aims to make Kennedy seem distant from average Americans and part of the "elite" most people abhor, even though his positions generally align with the middle class – and claiming that he is anti-science because of his position on vaccines.
"RFK Jr. is one of the biggest voices pushing anti-vaccine rhetoric, regularly distributing misinformation and disinformation about vaccines which scientific and medical experts overwhelmingly say are safe and effective based on rigorous scientific studies," Davis stated with super-speed.
"But can a Kennedy break through in 2024, or will RFK Jr.'s controversial stances limit his appeal?"
The nearly 15-minute interview was published on the ABC News YouTube page, and you can watch it below:
As you will notice at the end of the above video, Davis explains that the interview as you just watched it is not the complete interview that actually took place. She explained why at the end, stating that ABC News chose not to air the full segment because Kennedy made numerous "false claims" about vaccines.
"We should note that during our conversation, Kennedy made false claims about the Covid-19 vaccines. Data shows that the Covid-19 vaccines prevented millions of hospitalizations and deaths from the disease," Davis said, once again in speed talking.
"He also made misleading claims about the relationship between vaccination and autism. Research shows that vaccines and the ingredients used in vaccines do not cause autism, including multiple studies involving more than a million children, and major medical associations like the American Academy of Pediatrics and the advocacy group Autism Speaks."
"We've used our editorial judgment in not including extended portions of that exchange in our interview. We thank Mr. Kennedy for the conversation."
It is unclear to what extent the interview was chopped and clipped before airing, but Davis' use of the words "extended portions" suggest that the full interview is significantly longer than what ABC News ultimately decided to share with viewers.
"All the major media companies are controlled by Big Pharma," one commenter wrote about ABC News and most of the rest.
"They're all part of the all-encompassing international corporate mafia state that we have all been living under for many decades, but are only beginning to realize," responded another about how vast and far-reaching the tentacles of control have slithered into the companies and institutions that steer the public narrative, particularly on matters relating to medicine (i.e., pharmaceuticals and vaccines).
Another wrote the following, which is a modern adaptation of the famous words spoken by the late President Abraham Lincoln:
"Pfizer can fool some of the people all of the time.
Pfizer fooled all of the people some of the time.
Pfizer does not fool all of the people all of the time.
Thank you, RFK Jr., for having the courage to 'just say no' to Pfizer and its ilk."
