Important. This disinformation campaign has been in the works for weeks. Finally the amplification is working... and likely is being aided by quarantine fatigue that makes folks eager for an “alternative narrative”
About the doc:
INFO ON MIKOVITS:

This lady was arrested in 2011, not for being a brave science whistleblower, but for STEALING shit.: chicagotribune.com/nation-world/c…
And although she denies being an anti-vaxxer, she IS an anti-Vaxxer who has showed up to govt meetings to “highlight how government the tries to cover up vaccine dangers” vcstar.com/story/news/loc…
She is part of an organized group of conspiracy theorists who have a vested interest in the erosion of faith in medicine and public health: vice.com/en_ca/article/…
And she has an AX to grind with the US public health establishment, not because of truth but because she fucked up and was exposed as a fraud: THIS: nytimes.com/2012/02/07/hea…
Imagine working in the ER all day while your patients are dying of COVID and dealing with these conspiracy theorists on Facebook.

Call out this shit when you see it.
Explain that when the world is chaotic and tragic it is common to want to find alternative narratives to account for the chaos.

But just because something is comforting or imposes order onto the world does not make it true.
This is textbook conspiracy theory:

Just like Sandy Hook conspiracy theorists who have tormented grieving families for years simply because the thought of the mass murder of little children was too much for them to fathom so they preferred to imagine it didn’t actually happen.
Just because a narrative makes you feel more in control doesn’t make it true.

In fact, I would argue that if a narrative makes you feel more in control of a chaotic situation, you should question it and push back even more since it is offering your mind something very tempting.
