This Morning host Eamonn Holmes has been branded “irresponsible” for comments he made on 5G technology and coronavirus.
He spoke out on the ITV show after presenter Alice Beer branded the conspiracy theories which link them as “ridiculous” and “incredibly stupid”.
Holmes, 60, who was co-presenting with wife Ruth Langsford, responded that “it’s very easy to say it is not true because it suits the state narrative”.
He told Beer: “I totally agree with everything you are saying but what I don’t accept is mainstream media immediately slapping that down as not true when they don’t know it’s not true.
“No-one should attack or damage or do anything like that but it’s very easy to say it is not true because it suits the state narrative.”
The presenter added: “That’s all I would say, as someone with an inquiring mind.”
