Marc Siegel COVID-19 pandemic
During the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, Siegel appeared often in conservative media, pushing medical advice that ran counter to CDC recommendations. COVID-19 “should be equated to the flu,” Siegel asserted inaccurately on Fox News’ Hannity in March 2020. Siegel’s statement was identified as part of a larger set of COVID-19 misinformation circulating in conservative media by Kathleen Hall Jamieson and Dolores Albarracn, who published their findings in the peer-reviewed Harvard Kennedy School Misinformation Review in April 2020. The study found that Americans who relied on Fox News and other right-wing sources for news were more likely to credit conspiracy theories or baseless rumors than Americans who relied on mainstream sources.
