.>>CENK: So Ebola has entered the country, as if it’s a thing, right? I mean, at Fox News, all day long — [BLIPPING] Ebola! Ebola’s here! Ebola’s here. But wait till you get a load of the first clip here. Let’s try to guess whose fault it is.>>Why did Obama let the Ebola virus into the United States? Well, Britain and France is on board. Do you believe that we should be allowing flights from Africa into the United States from the two countries most affected? I believe our leader’s first and foremost obligation is to protect the security of our country, first and foremost. Why does that seem so difficult for these people to do? Imagine if you’re in that hospital in Dallas. Imagine you’re being treated. Maybe you’re an elderly person, a child. And you’re gonna look at those family members and say oh, no, no, no worries.>>CENK: Aw unless those family members are making out with the patients that’s exactly what I would tell them. It’s not airborne! It’s not in the air, okay? You have to exchange bodily fluids. Are your family members having sex with that patient while he’s got Ebola? Well, then I would be concerned. But look at these guys. Why did Obama let Ebola into the country? Good questions. Why didn’t he just ban all of Africa? More brilliant questions coming out from Fox News. They unbelievably had the CDC director, Dr. tom Frieden — when I would any doctor, let alone the CDC director go on Fox News to get subjugated to this? >>I know. I saw your press conference. I know you say the public does not to worry about it. But I got to tell you something. My daughter works in the building directly across the street from the hospital. And I talked to her last night. She’s a little freaked out.>>I understand that people are scared. It’s a scary disease. But she’s not a contact. Let’s go back and look at the plain truth of how Ebola spreads. It only spreads from someone who’s sick and only spreads from direct contact with the person or their body fluids.>>CENK: Is your daughter sleeping with the patient? But the thing is, the funny thing about fox is, facts are irrelevant. So they’re like, but we’re panicked anyway. I understand what you’re saying, but what we sell here is fear. Now, they’re gonna take it to an unbelievable level in the next question. Watch this.>>And this is a political thing. But you’re part of the administration. They feel that the administration has misled a lot of people on a lot of things. Why should we believe you when you’re telling us this stuff?>>Well, our approach at CDC is always to tell people more rather than less. We’re gonna tell you what happens when it happens. When we don’t know something, we’ll tell you as well. We’ll level with people, because that’s the most important way and that’s the most effective way to get the information across and get people to understand what we need to do.>>CENK: Why should we believe you when you tell us about a virus? They’re scientists. They’re doctors. They’re not going to lie to you. Oh, watch this, watch this. We’ll fuck with the Fox And Friends guys. Oh, no, no, dude. It’s not airborne. Totally gonna get Ebola. This is gonna be hilarious. But, you see, the reason he would even ask such an absurd question is because their frame of mind is well, we lie to people all the time. When we substitute our propaganda for facts. We do it. We tell you — in fact we’re doing it now. We’re scaring the living crap out of everybody say Obama let Ebola into the country and that you should all panic and be incredibly afraid of that. Even though it doesn’t meet the facts on the ground. So we do it, so that’s why I’m asking you. Would you play with the facts for political reasons? The guys like, I run the CDC. Are you insane? That’s what he should have said. He should have Reza Aslaned him. He was way too calm in giving that answer. Come on, dude. Obama says the sky is blue. But you know, he’s played with the facts before. Are you sure the sky is blue? Okay, now, we’re not done yet. More Fox & Friends. This time Elisabeth Hasselbeck. They’re going to talk to infectious disease specialist Dalilah Restrepo. Now, they ask her over and over again about — are you sure we shouldn’t be living in a constant state of fear? Watch.>>How contagious is it in your mind? We heard you have to be in close contact. But now it’s here in the United States. The conversation’s revved up.>>So Ebola is not as contagious. It’s a very infectious virus. But it’s not as contagious. You can’t catch Ebola from food, from talking to someone. You really have to have contact with bodily fluids. So that puts a little bit of extra barrier. The other issue is that you really — the infectious time of it is when you develop symptoms.>>How concerned are you about the people that he may or may not have been in contact with? There seems to be a laissez-faire attitude about that. And I’m wondering if they’re just trying to not to panic us or them.>>Many have developed of fever. That’s where the infectious part develops, it begins. So they will have to be monitored for 21 days during the period of incubation.>>What about those who are the plane with him though? No follow-up just to be safe? Better to be safe than sorry? that’s close enough contact for some.>>They were asymptomatic during the plane ride, so there really is so risk during that plane ride this time.>>Now, all the people in that emergency room — he had the symptoms right then. Shouldn’t those people be monitored?>>They will be. That’s part of the investigation and it should be.>>But what about the guy who was on the bicycle who saw him once. And what about the guy who was on the train who never even saw him. But still, how about that guy, okay? How many times does she have to answer that. Apparently one more time.>>You have a very calm tone. I think it must from nature. From what you do professionally, doctor. But the rest of us are saying, wait a minute. There’s panic when it comes to flu, to life. As a parent, I’m thinking, well, there should be a little bit of justification for worry here. Am I wrong?>>The viruses behave a little bit different. And flu virus is something that’s contagious through the air, through droplet. It’s a little bit easier. This carries another layer because it requires bodily fluids.>>But it’s here. >>It is here. But we’re not in the same infrastructure as other areas where this has taken off.>>CENK: But it’s here! It’s here. Obama let Ebola into the country. Don’t you understand we need to panic? How many times does she have to answer it? You know, they asked her one more time. And here was her final response.>>Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth? It is not airborne! You have to exchange bodily fluids. Have you exchanged bodily fluids with a Liberian man recently? Okay. If you have, then maybe you should, because (inaudible) if he’s an Ebola patient. If not, shut up already!
