Fox & Friends hosts sit while flag is unfurled and military performs national anthem

Published

on

The hosts of Fox & Friends on Thursday appeared to break with the national tradition of standing with a hand over the heart while the anthem is performed.

To celebrate Flag Day, Fox & Friends brought in a 30 ft. by 50 ft. flag and an Army band. While the anthem was performed, members of the military saluted. Some of the crowd gathered around the flag could be seen holding their hands over their hearts, but many others did not.

When the camera returned to the hosts of Fox & Friends, they were sitting at their usual spot on the studio’s couch with their hands at their side.

“That is your shot of the morning,” host Ainsley Earhardt announced. “Isn’t that beautiful. That flag is a 30 by 50 flag representing patriotism out on our plaza. Our Army band is performing the Star Spangled Banner in honor of Flag Day.”

The hosts, who have often been critical of NFL players who do not stand for the anthem, did not explain why they did not participate in the display of patriotism.

With 14,000 followers, he posts almost daily, giving explanations on the latest scientific research and, in particular, aims to fight misinformation that spreads as fast as the virus itself.

He is among a growing number of doctors, academics and institutions who in recent weeks have adapted and amplified their scientific messaging in hopes of countering what has been termed an infodemic -- a deluge of information, including widespread false claims, which experts say can pose a serious threat to public health.

Published

In early May, Florida attorney Daniel Uhlfelder made news by dressing up as the Grim Reaper in an attempt to scare people from crowding beaches during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Days later, he escalated by laying out body bags on the steps of the Florida capitol building in Tallahassee.
