Here is an article in left-leaning Slate that you should read. The subheading of the piece is:
Do we want public health officials to report facts and uncertainties transparently? Or do we want them to shape information to influence the public to take specific actions?
Ummm, we want facts. Shape information? That’s called manipulation.
Talking about Fauci:
Such high-profile mixed messages in a short time frame, without substantive new data to justify the change, generated confusion and a backlash from politicians, other experts, and the general public.
More from Fauci himself:
When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent. Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, “I can nudge this up a bit,” so I went to 80, 85.
The article goes on to talk about more noble lies. Read it. Their summary:
Noble lies are a trap. We cannot predict the public’s behavior, and loss of trust is devastating. The general population is far too skeptical to blindly follow the advice of experts, and far too intelligent to be easily duped.
This is why people have LOST THEIR TRUST!!
Here’s super popular liberal Amy Siskind (From her website: Defender of democracy, activist for women’s rights, and advocate for the LGBTQ+ community, Amy Siskind is best known as the author of The Weekly List and as President of The New Agenda, a non-profit dedicated to the advancement of women.)
There are so many more of these hypocrites who hammered the vaccine and then clutch their pearls when people are suspicious. YOU DID THIS! LOOK IN THE MIRROR!!!
Listen, you can be on ANY side you want as far as COVID origins, COVID treatment, vaccine necessity, mask usage. I don’t care. I got the Moderna vaccine. What I do care about is the loss of trust in science due to assholes lying. And for Fauci to do that, well, then he’s an asshole.
(The image is the bobblehead doll of Fauci. What he is doing with his hands is asking us to flatten the curve. Remember that mantra? Yeah. Well, they moved the goalposts. Another noble lie. That resulted in loss of trust).
