to their belief in 'hoaxes'

Remember Pauline Kael? She's the famous Manhattan film critic who apocryphally said that she couldn't understand how anyone could vote to re-elect President Nixon in 1972, because she didn't know anyone. (Actually -- she did know one, but lost track of him.) She "lived in a rather special world," as she put it. Well, the New York Times still lives there, and appears to like being mired in the same Mr. Magooism. Latest nonsense from those heights comes from a big data-journalism-driven piece with three bylines and four contributors on vaccine hesitancy around the U.S., concluding that it's all those troglodytes who voted for President Trump


They don't know any conservatives, do they?

Okay. How 'bout they come back in a year or two and discuss who bought into "hoaxes" then? Yes, now there may be unfounded fears. But are they about the so-called "vaccines" or they about the so-called "pandemic"? History will answer. (But very likely not in the NY Times.)

Our local news keeps saying that ''underserved communities'' are lagging in vaccine rates. Does the media now think Trump voters are amongst the 'underserved'?

This 76 year old troglodyte is not interested in inserting antifreeze and other nasty stuff into her body. I will take my chances. Thankfully there was information available that did not include the pap from CDC or Dr. Fraud.

Hoaxes like Russia-Russia, Climate Change, a stolen presidential election, a rogue FBI that keeps secrets and spies on non-democrats, murders of people who have damaging information on the Clintons like Epstein. NSA cell phone database. Yeah, we are kinda stupid, aren't we?

If this vaccine was SAFE AND EFFECTIVE, the government would not have to beg people to take it, or be making plans to force them to take it!!!! Does anyone have any spare conspiracy theories? Mine are all coming true.

It is easy to believe in hoaxes when we have been lied to and the truth deliberately hidden for years. If the MSM had done their journalism job we might not have needed to scour the internet for some kind of information which is admittedly suspect. I don't know whether the pandemic has been some made-up baloney. I can't tell whether these experimental vaccines have as-yet catastrophic side effects but I among others are tired of being treated as mushrooms by media, big business, and pols.

Look dummy. I am about as conservative as they get and I got the vaccine because I want to get rid of the damned mask! It's been over two weeks since I got the shot and I am fine and I want to get the mask off!! So quit moving the goalposts Dr. Faux.

How many hoaxes and lies are liberals willing to swallow before they choke on their own pure unadulterated BS? All of the following have been supported and promoted by the "Liberal Press." Nuclear winter, Peak oil, acid rain, the ozone hole, Mayan Dooms Day calendar, Clarence Thomas, Anita Hill, pubic hair on Coke can, Tawana Brawley, Duke lacrosse players Hoax, Hands up don't shoot, Trayvon Martin, Brett Kavanaugh a rapist, Covington Catholic High School drummer, Jussie Smollett's hate crime, Russian collusion, global warming/climate change, (AOC said that she fears "the world is going to end in 12 years if we don't address climate change). As I approach my eighth decade I have survived dozens of end of the world predictions and liberal hoaxes and it has made me a little skeptical.

If vaccines are effective (and I believe they probably are), why do the vaccinated still have to wear masks? If you really want to incentivize people to get vaccinated, tell them they don't have to wear a mask once they're vaccinated.

This has nothing to do with Republicans not wanting to take the anti-Wuhan flu vaccines developed under President Trump. Instead, The NY Times is supporting the Biden/Fauci lie that we cannot stop lockdowns, mask wearing and school closings because Repubs/conservatives are refusing to cooperate. This Democrat lie will continue through the 2022 and 2024 elections for how else can Dems justify the millions of absentee ballots needed to expand their control over Congress and have Harris win the Presidency in 2024? This is all about power, not public health.

No, stupid New York Times. We on the right hesitate to take the vaccine because we see the hypocrisy and contradictions. We were told a year ago that one death from COVID was too many. Keeping that standard . . . one death from the vaccine is too many. Enough said.

I worked in a hospital since this started, and I would dodge Covid patients on a daily basis while doing my job. I never missed a day of work. I got in and out of elevators which were used to take Covid patients to certain floors. I got nothing. After over a year of working through this in a hospital, I've come to the conclusion that this virus isn't as contagious as Fauci and the media make it out to be. All I did during this whole time, was wash my hands. I washed my hands at least ten times a day, and when I wasn't washing them, I used alcohol on my hands and other hand cleaners. Of course I also wore a mask, but it was not anything special.

Totally agree w #13. In 2020, the media kept telling prople that Trump would never succeed in developing a vaccine by year-end, ignoring the fact that the American can-do spirit has historically risen to the occasion a number of times in the past, proving the worth of the American capitalistic system. All the media negativity was directed at Trump. Then, during the VP debates, Kamala Harris stated that she would not trust any vaccine developed "by Trump". So the Democrats undermined the confidence in the vaccine. They could not allow even an expression of confidence in American scientists, in American pharmaceutical companies, in American capitalism. There is no recognition of brilliant individuals whose work created the vaccines. The only face we see is Fauci, and we are skeptical of him because he is too political. #13 is right, COVID worked for the Dems in 2020 and they have every intention of stringing it out to 2022.

It isn't your political persuasion. My liberal and conservative friends have gotten the shots. The question is, do you trust the 'science' and, do you trust the authorities who assure you it is safe and in the long run, is safer than the disease itself? Most people are getting the shots because of the hyperbolic fear generated by the political and media establishment, combined with a lifelong trust of the medical efficacy of vaccines. However, it is not commonly understood that this is not a vaccine in the long-understood sense. it is not an injection of less potent viral particles that your body trains itself to kill and protect against. It is an agent that causes your own body to produce proteins that your immune system trains itself to attack. The understanding is that the body will then be prepared to attack the invading COVID protein that uses the same proteins. But what are the long-term effects of introducing an mRNA that spews proteins that your immune system rallies against. What turns off production? The point is that this new approach needs years of study and should not be introduced in massive quantities into the population to combat a disease that is marginally more virulent than the annual flu. However, criticisms such as those above are not allowed on social media or mainstream press.

How about just not trusting the folks who are pushing this not to have nefarious goals? How about being less afraid of getting this virus than I am of getting their damned shot....which I have absolutely NO idea what it actually will do to me, and it apparently doesn't make me immune, since Dr. Fraud says that you STILL can't go out into a restaurant. And I have been going to restaurants two to three times a week THE WHOLE LAST YEAR. Why would I take the risk of trusting these haters of the human race? What if they have evil intent? No, thanks.

Like most here, I do not believe the dishonest liberal media as to the contagiousness and the lethality of this virus, and the admission of CNN of hyping the fear associated with the virus only strengthens my opinion. I also have more faith in my healthy lifestyle and immune system and therefore feel no need for this vaccine.

Real information on this vaccine and it's effectiveness has been minimal at best. News released today states there should be a 3rd round of shots this year, followed by yearly shots thereafter. I have a friend who received both shots months ago, but is now in the ICU with Covid.

Using this person's "logic", Chicago is a Republican city. The mayor and aldermen claim that not enough Chicagoans of color have been vaccinated. So, if it's Republicans who are refusing the vaccine, then this must mean Chicago's POC community is Republican. Who knew!

So where's Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's border crisis project manager? Looks like she's in Chicago, getting "a snack," according to White House spokesweasel Jen Psaki. Such is the simplified summary of the state of things, based on a snapping, flippant reply by the latter to a question from a New York Post reporter. According to the Daily Mail: New York Post reporter Steven Nelson acknowledged during Wednesday's press briefing: 'As we discussed here today, Vice President Harris is put in charge of addressing the root causes of the border crisis.' 'She hasn't visited the border or Central America or spoken with leaders of El Salvador or Honduras,' he noted.

President Trump tried to make a big deal about Joe Biden's plan to federally mandate cheap apartments with low-income residents into suburban single-family zones. The claim was it would achieve "equality." The unstated plan was "more Democrat voters." Trump warned of it as a scheme to end the suburbs, and it turns out he was right. Biden's $3.2 trillion infrastructure plan sneaks that leftist dream scheme into its thousands of pages of legislation, instead of lets the bad idea die on its own through a true congressional vote. The New York Post's Betsy McCaughey warned in 2020 that the whole scheme was 'disastrous.'

The big picture: By shifting Trump's rhetoric from immigration to fears around the economic impact of shutdowns, the virus gave conservative and low-information Latino voters a permission structure to back Trump even if they shunned him in 2016, according to preliminary findings by research firm Equis that were reviewed by Axios.
