John King

CNN host John King revealed he is immunocompromised in a segment pushing back against right-wing misinformation on COVID-19 vaccines.

“I’m going to share a secret I’ve never shared before: I’m immunocompromised,” King said on CNN Tuesday. “I have multiple sclerosis. So I’m grateful you’re all vaccinated.”

There is no cure for multiple sclerosis, a disease that attacks nerves throughout the body. It was King’s first time publicly addressing his diagnosis.

King brought up his diagnosis during a segment calling out Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who used the recent death of former Secretary of State Colin Powell to spread vaccine misinformation. In a Monday night segment, Carlson said Powell died from COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated, but did not mention to his audience that Powell had multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer that greatly reduces the body’s ability to fight infection. At the end of his show, Carlson said the 84-year-old Powell “was suffering from a number of different health problems.”
