Dr Fauci’s Background

Dr. Anthony Fauci has served in many US Administrations. He is highly respected in the field and is head of the National Institutes of Health, the US government’s central medical grant endowment body. The NIH’s budget means that Fauci and the NIH drive tremendous scientific funding.

Dr. Fauci’s background is in immunology and specifically infectious diseases. This makes it impossible for Fauci to deny knowledge around the gain of function research that will be the article’s topic.

Dr. Fauci and the Truth

The media and the public often refer to Dr. Fauci as a scientist. That is true, but one does not survive through the number of administrations Dr. Fauci has and led the NIH without being a politician. Being political means achieving an objective, and those objectives usually contradict scientific truth. Being political and politically motivated contradicts following a scientific approach.

Repeated interviews and testimony from Dr. Fauci have revealed a willingness to bend the truth to meet political objectives. Jimmy Dore was one of the first political analysts to pick up on this. Dore critiqued Dr. Fauchi in 2020 for providing contradictory information about wearing masks. It is important to note that in mid-2020, no one in mainstream media questioned Dr. Fauci.

However, Dr. Fauci has been untouchable within the establishment media in the US. Depending on the group one is speaking with, you can be branded as “anti-science.”

The Rand Paul, Dr. Fauchi Interaction

If you have read the article How the US, China, and the NIH and Dr. Fauci Promulgated the Coronavirus., these same videos are embedded in that article to skip them.

Observe the analysis of Dr. Fauchi’s interaction with Rand Paul.

Note that YouTube is at a degree of censorship that Jimmy Dore stated he could not cover the story unless it had first been covered elsewhere. YouTube has been suppressing Jimmy Dore’s channel because YouTube is financially and politically connected to the Democratic Party in the US, and Jimmy Dore critiques the Democratic Party.

Therefore, they retaliate by restricting the growth of subscribers to his channel. This is not a hypothetical or an evidence-free claim. I have noticed that Jimmy Dore’s subscriber numbers never increase, but his views are still high.

Second Coverage

This issue was also covered by the following video produced by The Hill.

It is of note that neither of these is establishment media outlets. Except for the few that Republicans like Fox News and Breitbart capture, the establishment media are captured by the Democratic party. Fauci’s lies cannot be found in these outlets. 

This illustrates a highly doctrinal media system, with journalists presenting themselves as the standard-bearers of what is true when they repeat biased claims by powerful entities. This shows the media as the victim of a massive Dunning Kreuger Effect. Media entities discredit any competing hypothesis as soon as the establishment hypothesis is created. A competing hypothesis is then called a “conspiracy theory.” Taibbi explains that in his experience, anyone who would naturally question the establishment’s explanations is run out of establishment media. This leaves a mass of conformist journalists whom the establishment easily manipulates.
