    Fox News (I already hated this news guy for other reasons) Notice at the end, right when the person defending vaping mentions THC, the news guy says "I'm out of time" Cut him off... just like that! Basically kept interrupting him the whole time (and giving him the classic "yes or no?" line)

    I started watching that but I couldn't finish it. Things were in danger of getting broken in my general vicinity.

    I wonder if they'll start calling us vapeheads?

    We don't call it journalism any more. We call it "the media". For a week or two there is no formal action to take because an executive order has not been made public. Once that happens I'm sure several groups will be going to court and they are probably talking to each other right now. In the mean time may be the best that can be done is make sure all the stake holders understand what might be coming and make sure their vaping friends and family and supporters are aware.

    Yeah, Fox has been pathetic. The only guy I've seen take Vaping's side is Tucker Carlson. The others have 0 desire/downright refuse to look into the facts. Hannity-coward that he is-vapes himself and has said nothing. He's always been a spineless, ratings whore hack.

    All the media is spinning the story, not putting any emphasis on the real cause of the deaths.
    I put the blame on the CDC for not blasting the real cause, vaping black market THC cartridges.
    If someone else dies the CDC should be held responsible.
    They are using these deaths to advance their anti vaping agenda.

    Not quite true. Bret Baier had a very good and sensible segment about Trump's vaping ban, so did Harris Faulkner. Gutfeld has always defended vaping (he was a vaper himself), and John Stossel has been pro-vaping for years. Dr. Siegel is wishy-washy, but also makes a clear distinction between THC and nicotine e-cigs.

    The rest of them are somewhat clueless, like everybody else:

    He gets paid to vape Juuls.

    Rush Limbaugh used to vape in the early days and would do it in restaurants just to see what would happen (before vaping was banned from restaraunts) but went back to smoking cigars.

    Everybody I know applauds that I vape instead of smoke. Yet they are all turned off by the cloud chasers. When they see one they turn to me and say to me "don't those things explode?"

    I stealth vape in a crowded office and nobody complains. But if somebody comes in with a Voopoo drag and fills the place with gummy bear clouds you can be assured they will have no choice but to ban vaping. And I'll be the guy who staples the ban notice to his forehead. Most cloud chasers I know respect the surroundings of others. So they vape outside. A couple do like me and sneak a puff from a pod device.

    We've just to ride this one out folks. Soon there'll be some other scurge to occupy the politicians. But we do need to do our due diligence like reporting places known to sell to minors to local authorities.

    I just read CNN will no longer advertise vape devices, we could be looking at an advertisement ban soon.

    In my mind, shepard smith lost his credibilty that day in 2004 when the big hurricane hit new orleans and he had an emotional meltdown on the section of a roadway and ramp that wasnt underwater, in front of the cameras and about 50 or more people that were stranded there because of the flood. And it seemed like after that, he wasnt on tv as much, of if so, was covering some unimportant fluff story. I wonder if anybody else remembers this.

    I'm glad to hear there are others on Fox telling the full story (although I haven't seen it). I did see a segment with Faulkner and she was terrible. Didn't mention THC once. Just nodded her head and looked alarmed. One of their geniuses (Stewart Varney on Fox Business) suggested that the problem could be solved by vapers requiring a doctor's prescription (lol).

    I take it for granted that the Lefty stations are spreading hysteria because this is being driven by the Left. The GOP's rolling over, as they always do, and/or complicit due to lobbyist $$$.

    This is a pot crisis, not a vape crisis. But pot's a sacred cow to the Left and their stoner base and it's a huge biz that's much more taxable than vaping. The bottom line here is lost revenue, both for big guv and special interests. THIS is the story and the crisis. Most of the Fox talking heads are either too dumb, too uninterested or too complicit to report the truth--so far, anyway.

    Shep Smith appeared to have an agenda because a member of his family fell to cancer caused by cigarette smoking. I can understand his grief, but he used his TV spot to nail anything that was remotely connected to tobacco. The interview was grossly biased and he jumped on every chance possible to interrupt and prevent information from the other side to be heard.

    Was that fair and balanced or did he walk in with an agenda designed to drive a nail into vaping? I think he owes the vaping industry an apology.
