Use Of Drug Boosted By Trump, Fox News Not Borne Out By Science

Description:

Rachel Maddow reports on a nationwide study finding that hydroxychloroquine, the drug persistently promoted by Fox News and Donald Trump, not only did not show benefits compared to standard care but saw more deaths, as well as other experts emphasizing insufficient clinical data and a lack of scientific merit to support the drug's use, and admonishes the media for continuing to air Trump's misinformation about the deadly coronavirus. Aired on 4/22/2020.


U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer is demanding answers from the Department of Veterans Affairs after officials say it administered a controversial COVID-19 remedy to more than 1,000 patients at its hospitals. (May 22)
President Trump says he is preparing to release an executive order related to the use of force by law enforcement. CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett, CBS News senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge and Yahoo News national reporter Marquise Francis join CBSN to discuss.
Prior to the rally people are going through temperature checks. Fox News talks to Trump supporters on the ground. #FoxNews
President Trump tells 'Fox & Friends' co-host Brian Kilmeade that former National Security Adviser John Bolton is a criminal who should go to jail; Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano reacts.
