Sinclair Broadcasting on Saturday said it will delay its broadcast of a news segment featuring a viral conspiracy theory surrounding Anthony Fauci’s role in the Covid-19 pandemic. “America This Week” host Eric Bolling was scheduled to air an interview with Judy Mikovits, a medical researcher featured in the “Plandemic” video that claims Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, was responsible for the creation of the coronavirus.
The report sparked an immediate outcry on social media, where the video has been largely banned on platforms including Facebook and YouTube. Fauci recently has talked about becoming the target of death threats over his public comments on the coronavirus pandemic, which have often contradicted the policies of President Donald Trump and his administration.
