George Conway Nails Fox News For Its Terrible Coronavirus Coverage With ‘1984’ Quote

The fierce Trump critic went full George Orwell to highlight the network’s shift in tone.

Conservative attorney George Conway highlighted Fox News’ shift in tone on the coronavirus pandemic with lines from George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel “1984.”

Personalities on the widely watched conservative network have in recent days begun to acknowledge the severity of the crisis, after previously downplaying it and accusing Democrats and the media of hype.

Only last week, prime time anchor Sean Hannity claimed Donald Trump’s foes were “weaponizing” the outbreak “to bludgeon” him.

Conway, a fierce critic of the president despite his wife Kellyanne Conway’s senior position within the administration, shared a Washington Post article detailing the apparent about-turn of Trump’s favorite cable network:

Many agreed with the lawyer’s assessment:
