During an interview on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” Dr. Anthony Fauci called out Fox News for its “outlandish” reporting on COVID-19 at a time when the public needs vital facts about the pandemic.

Fauci addressed the misinformation in the media and also discussed concerns relating to President Donald Trump’s controversial new coronavirus task force adviser, Dr. Scott Atlas.

“The bad guy is the virus. The bad guy is not the person on the other side of your opinion,” the nation’s top infectious disease expert told CNN’s Brian Stelter.

“There is so much misinformation during this very divisive time that we’re in, and the public really needs to know the facts,” he added. “Some of the media that I deal with really kind of, I wouldn’t say distort things, but certainly give opposing perspectives on what seems to be a pretty obvious fact.”

“If you listen to Fox News, with all due respect to the fact that they do have some good reporters, some of the things that they report there are outlandish, to be honest with you.”
