CNN’s write-up of the confirmation hearing for Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo is as biased as you’d expect a piece from CNN to be. Democrats walked out of the contentious hearing Wednesday, complaining, as CNN reports, about Ladapo’s “lengthy, circular responses that wouldn’t directly answer their questions about his background and the state’s response to the pandemic.”
One Democrat asked, “Do the vaccines work against preventing Covid-19? Yes or no?” Ladapo responded that “yes or no questions are not that easy to find in science” (something Dr. Anthony Fauci would get away with, no question) and later conceded that vaccines have “relatively high effectiveness for the prevention of hospitalization.”
The Sun-Sentinel was watching and declared Ladapo “unqualified.”

I want to see these Sun Sentinel journos stack their credentials up to Dr. Ladapo's. That would be good for a laugh.

Activists. They are not journalists.

Pray tell, anonymous opinion writer(s), what are your health credentials?

Funny how MSM gets to play judge, jury and board of medical inquiry with zero medical credentials

Why does the Sun Sentinel hate black people?
— Nick (@NickP13) January 26, 2022
Sun Sentinel is bold in its racism. Why are you against a successful black man?

You are unqualified to be a source of information to the public

He literally could eat ice cream, drift off into bizarre meaningless stories and call reporters stupid sons of bitches. You would cheer him to the White House. Just gotta be on the right team!

We’re shocked that Democrats weren’t on board with Gov. Ron DeSantis’ pick for surgeon general.
