Getting to the truth of any issue has become close to impossible today, especially if you listen to the mainstream news or the fact checkers on social media. Political correctness is killing us – sometimes literally. First up on the program this new year is Dr. Harvey Risch (ysph.yale.edu), Professor of Epidemiology at Yale University's School of Public Health. Medical journal articles are now being censored if they don't conform to the official narrative about the virus and the vaccines. Dr. Risch looks at vaccine efficacy, when Covid could be over, and weighs in on the effectiveness of Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.
Supposed fact checkers on social media are censoring posts that don't conform to the official narrative on any issue. Facebook just admitted in court that those same fact checkers are only offering opinions. Back with us this week is Founder and Publisher of American Thinker Thomas Lifson (americanthinker.com). This admission by Facebook not only reopens the publisher vs platform debate in regards to Section 230, but it also renders fact checkers useless. He also discusses inflation and the ineptness of the current administration.
In our final example of how political correctness is killing us, we look at the whole debate surrounding the vaccines and covid and the use and misuse of statistics. Wrapping out the New Year show this week is Dr. Jane Orient (aapsonline.org), Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. Definitions of words or phrases – like 'vaccinated' – are important because statistics will mean nothing if different studies have different definitions for the same word. The politically correct elites will use whatever study bolsters their narrative and eschew ones that don't.
