Anthony S. Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious-diseases expert, criticized Fox News for not responding after a host compared him to a Nazi doctor known for conducting inhumane and often fatal medical experiments in concentration camps.
Fauci told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Thursday night that he was “astounded” Fox News had not taken disciplinary action against host Lara Logan, who likened Fauci to the infamous physician Josef Mengele.
“What I find striking, Chris, is how she gets no discipline whatsoever from the Fox network — how they can let her say that with no comment and no disciplinary action,” he said.
Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Washington Post.
Logan, a former foreign correspondent for CBS News’s “60 Minutes,” made the comparison this week during a discussion on the omicron variant of the coronavirus in which she incorrectly stated that rates of death resulting from the virus are comparable with those from influenza.
