Fox's Neil Cavuto Grills GOP Rep Who Wants to Disband Coronavirus Task Force
Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto had an intense confrontation with Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) on Thursday over his demand that the White House coronavirus task force disband, calling the Trumpian congressman out over his home state's exploding COVID-19 cases and his own lack of health expertise.Biggs recently called for the Trump administration to scrap its pandemic task force over his belief that its public health experts, namely Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, were undermining President Donald Trump as the president pushes for the economy to continue to reopen.Interviewing Biggs on Thursday's broadcast of Your World with Neil Cavuto, the veteran Fox anchor—who has frequently been the target of the president's ire over his critical Trump coverage—immediately pressed Biggs on whether he thought masks could help stem the spread of coronavirus.Hospital Workers to ‘Complacent' Americans: Stop Right Now"I have to tell you, I'm reticent to believe that if a mask works so well, then why is L.A. spiking and surging with COVID cases when they've had a mandatory mask regulation in effect for seven weeks now," the Arizona congressman replied. "There is no empirical evidence that that is the case."Cavuto, meanwhile, pointed out that while localities may have had mask ordinances, the issue may have been enforcement and getting residents to follow the guidelines. Biggs, however, insisted that the actual problem was that masks themselves aren't very effective, despite copious studies showing otherwise.

Fox News Host Wonders When Masks Got ‘Political.' He Should Watch His Own Network.
Now that President Donald Trump has finally said that he's "all for masks" amid a massive surge in coronavirus cases, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy on Thursday wondered why wearing a mask to slow the spread of COVID-19 ever became politicized. "For some reason, over the last couple of weeks, a month, masks have become political," the Fox host remarked during an interview. If he wants to identify that mysterious "some reason," he needn't look any further than his own colleagues.Since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. months ago, Fox News hosts and guests have repeatedly criticized face coverings—either by openly mocking them or by claiming mandated mask-wearing is an infringement on personal freedom, particularly by Democratic officials eager to control the population.During an April 24 broadcast of Hannity, for instance, guest host Mike Huckabee and Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy—both former Republican elected officials—groused about a then-new Houston mandate that would fine residents up to $1,000 if they didn't wear a mask in public, calling it an example of local government "trampling the constitutional rights of American citizens.""Is this a threat to the long-term life and liberty of the United States and its people?" Huckabee wondered aloud about state and local coronavirus restrictions, prompting Gowdy to make an over-the-top observation about such fines.Trump's Fox News Cabinet Tells Him the Coronavirus Crisis Is Over"So, if I'm going to i
