Trust the “Science”: What if the “Science” is Being Driven by Politics and Not Data?
The Rich Zeoli Podcast- August 22nd, 2022: Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (C.D.C.), has conceded that her agency’s response to the coronavirus pandemic was littered with mistakes ranging from “testing to data to communications”—ultimately resulting, according to her assessment, in a loss of public trust. If research from institutions like Johns Hopkins University suggests that lockdowns and mask mandates have had “little to no effect on COVID-19 mortality,” then why is it that public officials, even as they acknowledge their failures, are calling for stricter responses and more government control moving forward? The “science” is no longer being supported by hard data.
