@janemiami @AncientMirror @GodonFrank @RonColeman @tracybeanz @GovMurphy @pnjaban Yeah, but check who said what. Fauci said that HCQ was unproven and reports of success were anecdotal — BUT that if he had a family member with the virus, he'd prescribe it and he would enter a clinical trial if he caught it. This was turned into "Fauci said it's worthless."
@janemiami @AncientMirror @GodonFrank @RonColeman @tracybeanz @GovMurphy @pnjaban What he said was completely true. The part about using it himself went unreported. But it gave an opportunity for the megalithic media to run a story "Trump's own advisor says it's no good." ...
@janemiami @AncientMirror @GodonFrank @RonColeman @tracybeanz @GovMurphy @pnjaban Pretty quickly that turned into conspiracy theory: Fauci was saying it didn't work because he was friends with Bill Gates and Soros and they wanted to (a) make money (b) make everyone take a vaccine (c) use the vaccine for mind control.
@janemiami @AncientMirror @GodonFrank @RonColeman @tracybeanz @GovMurphy @pnjaban People also kept reporting that Fauci said the CFR was 2%. Track down what Fauci actually said, and it's "some reports would make CFR 2% but those aren't necessarily correct, and the real CFR may be between 0.1 and 1 percent."
@janemiami @AncientMirror @GodonFrank @RonColeman @tracybeanz @GovMurphy @pnjaban In the same context, he said, "which would make it more comparable to bad flu." There was a short fad for saying Fauci was lying about that too, OMG it's not like the flu no one should be saying that! But then he was agreeing with something Trump said, so it didn't have legs.
@janemiami @AncientMirror @GodonFrank @RonColeman @tracybeanz @GovMurphy @pnjaban Then there was a hoax that HCQ made it worse. Lancet published it and had to back down. It was literally published based on a scam company using scam data. But Trump had said HCQ was good, so it was believed — at first.
@janemiami @AncientMirror @GodonFrank @RonColeman @tracybeanz @GovMurphy @pnjaban Many people DIDN'T get HCQ/Az/Zn because of that study.

Notice the retraction didn't get near as much press. And it's entirely possible some people died as a result. But they got to own Trump, so it's all good.
@janemiami @AncientMirror @GodonFrank @RonColeman @tracybeanz @GovMurphy @pnjaban There are lots more examples, but I should be writing this rant where I get paid. Watch this space.
@janemiami @AncientMirror @GodonFrank @RonColeman @tracybeanz @GovMurphy @pnjaban But you're completely right about it being politicized; a lot of that was people who started with the assumption that anything Trump said must be opposed, right or wrong.

Now I really am going to work.
