MSNBC’s Joy Reid attacked Fox News Tuesday, claiming the network “let their viewers die from coronavirus.”

Reid has been sparring with the network since the pandemic began. “The ReidOut” host said it was “fun” for Fox News to watch their viewers die of COVID.

“They’re all vaccinated,” Reid said, referring to her conservative counterparts. “They’re going to live through this and let their viewers and their fans die because they don’t give a damn. It is clicks with them. They don’t care what happens. This is fun for them.”

Reid also defended President Joe Biden’s handling of the pandemic.

“God Bless Joe Biden. He isn’t perfect,” she said. “There are a lot of things we can complain about, but he’s a caring human being who does want the whole country to survive this, and there are just people there who have decided to turn him into the devil.”

Reid also called Fox News star Tucker Carlson a “clown” before asserting that “Fox News is the most vaccinated news company in America.”

Fox News is launching two new weekend programs hosted by Lawrence Jones and Brian Kilmeade. The changes announced Thursday by CEO Suzanne Scott mark the completion of several modifications to their programming, which began when Jesse Watters was named as the network’s new weeknight host last week. 

The new programs begin on Jan 29 and will affect the start time for Dan Bongino’s show called “Unfiltered,” which will now air at 9 PM/ET. Kilmeade’s show will air at 8 PM/ET, and Lawrence Jones’ new program, called “Lawrence Jones Cross Country,” will start at 10 PM/ET.

The move means that Jones will become the youngest Black solo host of a program in cable news.

“I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities that Suzanne has provided me over the last four years, encouraging me to travel the country and seek out the stories of everyday Americans, many of whom have been overlooked by the rest of the media,” Jones said in a release.

Suzanne Scott called Jones an “impact player” at the network, adding Fox News was thrilled to add his talents to the weekend lineup.

“Whether reporting from the border or diners across America to hosting primetime specials, his perspective has added depth to our programming while resonating with the audience,” added Scott.

Kilmeade will remain a co-host of FNC’s FOX & Friends while also hosting the three-hour daily Brian Kilmeade Show on FOX News Audio.

“I am truly honored that Suzanne has given me another incredible opportunity at FOX News Media,” said Kilmeade. “My ultimate goal is to create a program that will always seek solutions rather than sow division.”

Kilmeade joined Fox News as a sports reporter in 1997. His nationally syndicated radio program is heard on 250  radio affiliates nationwide.

WSAZ’s Tori Yorgey Struck by Car During Live Report

WSAZ-TV

A WSAZ-TV had an eventful night in her final week to close out her tenure with the West Virginia television station. Tori Yorgey was on assignment giving her live weather report but was struck by a car before she could provide the information. 

Anchor Tim Irr stated in the video, “And now we’re starting to experience unfortunately in freeze-thaw we see this, water main breaks” before tossing it over to Yorgey to give her report. 

The vehicle struck Yorgey. However, she gets right back up.

“Oh my God, I just got hit by a car, but I’m okay. I just got hit by a car, but I’m ok, Tim,” Yorgey said. “I’m okay; we’re all good. I’m okay; yeah, that’s live tv for you; it’s all good. I actually got hit by a car in college like that too.”

The WSAZ-TV reporter would also comfort the driver, letting the women behind that wheel know that she’s okay and not seriously hurt. 

“I am so glad I’m ok, you’re ok, you’re ok. We’re all good. You know what? It’s a one-woman band. We’re good, Tim,” Yorgey said. “Ma’am, you are so sweet, and you are ok. It is all good. Oh, Lord. You know it’s my last week on the job, and I think this would happen specifically to me, Tim.”

“Were you bumped down low, Tori, or were you hit up high… I couldn’t really tell… I just saw you disappear out of the screen,” Irr asked Yorgey. 

As Yorgey gathered herself following the incident, she stated that her “whole life just flashed before my eyes.” Adding that, they “might need to move the camera over a bit,” Yorgey said.

“Tori’s in an area right now where there has been a water main break,” Irr explained to viewers.

Furthermore, Irr went on Twitter to further explain the situation. Some might think Irr had zero concern for his colleague, but he explained that those at the station were only receiving the audio.
