Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has accused Fox News of censoring negative reports about vaccines in an effort to protect the network’s Big Pharma advertisers.

Kennedy said Fox News barred content that reflected negatively on vaccines to preserve the narrative that the shots are “safe and effective.”

According to RFK Jr., the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, Fox sought to appease its big-money advertisers in the pharmaceutical industry who make the vaccines.

During a June 5 Twitter Spaces interview with the platform’s owner, Elon Musk, Kennedy disclosed that he approached former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes in 2016.

Kennedy said he spoke with Ailes about doing a story on the mercury content in vaccines but was shut down.

“He said that any of his hosts who allowed me on TV to talk about this, that he would be forced to fire them,” Kennedy recalled.

“And he said that 75 percent of his advertising revenues for the nightly news shows were at that point coming from pharma.”

According to Kennedy, Ailes was sympathetic to his cause.

However, Ailes reportedly told Kennedy that he knew such a story would result in a call from Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch “within 10 minutes.”

As an outspoken critic of the Covid vaccines, Kennedy has faced his fair share of being removed from platforms in recent years.

The most recent example saw Instagram suspend the account of Kennedy’s 2024 campaign, as Slay News reported.

Kennedy also revealed that his personal Instagram account was banned years ago and has not been reinstated, despite his political candidacy.

“To silence a major political candidate is profoundly undemocratic,” he wrote on June 1 in a tweet.
