If you’ve never watched One America News (OAN), then you’ve missed seeing what Fox News would look like if everyone who worked there was attempting to run a “news” network as some sort of gag, a video version of The Onion.
Sadly, however, OAN isn’t trying to do satire. They actually believe they’re engaged in passing along valuable information to their viewers, who must be among the most dimwitted saps on the planet.
Take, for example, a segment OAN ran involving the subject of COVID-19 vaccines magnetizing people. There is ZERO proof anyone has ever been turned magnetic by taking the vaccine, but One America devoted an entire segment to the issue, inviting a woman named Amelia Miller, who was introduced thusly by host Dan Ball:
And that, Ball admitted, makes him believe the magnetizing theory must be true, because he can’t accept what the BBC, Reuters, et al have to say on the matter:
That’s when Amelia Miller joined the broadcast and began putting pieces of metal on her arm. They would stick for a second, but then they fell off, which kind of makes her claim invalid on its face.
Here, see for yourself:
Despite her obvious failure to prove her claim, Ball ended the segment by saying:
It doesn’t work. She failed miserably. There is no such thing as any vaccine making metal stick to your skin. It has never happened and it never will, because it’s complete bullshit. It’s a bit like saying that if you lick an envelope, your tongue will suddenly become a tape dispenser. Good luck with that; it ain’t gonna happen.
If nothing else, at least One America News is good for laughs. Too bad they (and their viewers) don’t realize what a joke they are.
