Baltimore radio host Torrey Snow is pushing back against theories presented by White House officials for vaccine hesitancy.
During his daily show Monday on WBAL NewsRadio 1090 and FM 101.5, Snow said it is unlikely that city residents are listening to the narratives being spun in the Nation’s Capital.
Snow is referring to a statement made by President Joe Biden last week, accusing Facebook of “killing people.” Days after making that statement, Biden absolved the platform of any wrongdoing.
“Facebook isn’t killing people, these 12 people are out there giving misinformation,” Biden said. “Anyone listening to it is getting hurt by it. It’s killing people. It’s bad information.”
Snow said that statement coupled with other narratives about misinformation and disinformation is not the reason some city residents have opted not to get vaccinated.
“Both of those theories actually go out the window when you look at Baltimore City,” he said. “You are hard-pressed to make a case that Baltimore City is a bastion of white, evangelical, right-wing, Trumpists conservatives, good luck making that argument.”
Snow said even the arenas where the vaccine misinformation flows are unlikely to reach residents in the city. Snow claims trust is the biggest factor that politicians are not accounting for.
“I think they are people in Baltimore City that don’t have a great deal of trust in the mayor, they don’t have a great deal of trust for the Baltimore City Health Department, and they certainly don’t have a great deal of trust for the CDC or the FDA.”
