Default 2 Bakersfield Doctors Go Viral with Dubious COVID-19 Test Conclusions

Oh my the self annointed party of science reacts like classic censors to any information about the Chinese virus pandemic that doesn't conform to their orthodoxy.

Quote:
Drs. Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi, who own urgent care centers in the region, had called a press conference to release their conclusions about the results of 5,213 COVID-19 tests they had conducted at their centers and testing site. They claimed the results showed that the virus had spread further in the area, undetected.
The fury directed against the two doctors is analogous to the Middle Ages treatment of heretics or witches. So-called experts decried their information as "riddled with sampling and statistical errors" never explaining what those errors were. No doubt because it's just too complex for us to understand. The critics also noted the doctors appeared in medical scrubs, oh the horror.

YouTube, owned by Google, showed its dedication to free expression by deplatforming the doctors interview because it conflicted with the policy of public health officials. Despite over 5 million views the content was deemed too dangerous for the public.

Citing an infectious disease expert on the danger of posed by allowing politics to pollute the pristine "science" which censors any challenge to orthodoxy the article bemoans the waste of experts time dealing with them when they could be promoting group think.

Quote:
This pandemic has been so severely politicized in this country that evidence, no matter how poor, gets amplified enormously if it benefits one side or another,” said Bergstrom, who also was one of the first experts to critique the doctors’ study on Twitter. “We always hoped this crisis wouldn’t come, but that if it did we’d all be in this together. That’s been a huge surprise for all of us doing infectious disease epidemiology. It’s amazing to have to deal with this misinformation that’s being spread around for political purposes and the ways that interferes with adequate public health response
Challenging the so-called experts is "political" but unthinking conformity is in the public interest.

Ok fine, it has spread some where they are...…

How many new deaths...…?

And not bogus death numbers that are all the rage for some hospitals.....

REAL co-v verifiable death numbers.....

The hype is gone and finding out that what we have been told all along has been crap really pisses some folks off when they can't go to work....

Hopefully this will end sooner than later....

YouTube is fast becoming a college campus...where they "say" it's a open marketplace of ideas, but quickly stifle speech that doesn't fit into their worldview...
