Beyond the dangerous arrogance and pomposity of proclaiming "anyone who criticizes me is attacking Science" -- thus placing himself off-limits from questioning -- he *admitted* he purposely issued false, anti-science, politicized claims, such as telling people not to wear masks:
Fauci also admitted he purposely issued inaccurate claims about herd immunity for political reasons.

Once you *admit* that you made false statements in violation of The Science™, you don't then get to equate yourself to The Science™ such that attacks on you are attacks on it.
I Am The Science.
The New Clerisy: Faith in science is an oxymoron, by @lwoodhouse…
I'm not as anti-Fauci as others, but I think the level of media and public adoration he received carries a high danger to corrupt any human.

I often think about what Lula said to me in 2016 about how that happened to Sergio Moro, and how Lula had to also fight it. Read this:

There's a good reason Joe Scarborough is the anchor of the liberal-left's favorite cable outlet. Shown a *mountain of conclusive, documentary proof* that the Park Police's use of tear gas had nothing to do with Trump - was planned well before - he still insists it happened:
This IG report is as credible as it gets. From a career civil servant with key positions in the Obama Admin, it assembled a huge amount of proof & was *harshly critical* of the Park Police's use of force.

Yet because people need the media tale that Trump did it, they ignore it.
The liberal-left's other favorite outlet, CNN, took the lead in spreading the original falsehood. So rather than just admit they got the story wrong -- which they unquestionably did -- CNN employees like @Acosta keep encouraging their viewers to believe:

Yet Another Media Tale -- Trump Tear-Gassed Protesters For a Church Photo Op -- Collapses…
That Park Police violently cleared Lafayette Park at Trump's behest was treated as unquestioned truth by corporate media.

Today it was revealed by the independent IG Report to be an utter falsehood. Watch how readily and easily they spread lies. From CNN on June 1:
The IG's Report could not be clearer: the media narrative was false from start to finish.

Plans to clear the Park were made before anyone knew Trump was coming. Some journalists, like @MZHemingway, said this at the time, but were "debunked" and declared liars by "fact-checkers."

Two years ago today, we began our Secret Brazil Archive exposé by publishing 3 separate articles -- in Portuguese and English -- revealing severe corruption by Brazil's top judicial and prosecutorial officials, along with an Editor's Note explaining it:…
During that 2 years, Lula was released from prison, his convictions were nullified and his political rights restored, a major press freedom ruling was issued by the Supreme Court protecting the reporters, attempts to prosecute were defeated & @SF_Moro went from icon to disgraced.
Yet it was revealed just yesterday that a pro-Bolsonaro police official who has been criminally investigating journalists and activists -- including Globo's @realwbonner & @felipeneto -- summoned @TheInterceptBr's executive editor, @demori, for criminal inquiry for his reporting.

LOL. This is such a lie. The clip was originally posted by @tomselliott and he purposely posted the entire clip of Maya Gay's comments from the first word to the last: 2 minutes, 34 seconds of it. It's fine to agree with what she said but nobody distorted anything.
See for yourself. I posted this yesterday emphasizing that @tomselliott, as he usually does, went out of his way not to select excerpts but to post the whole answer:

The popular liberals who are defending Maya Gay's comments understood her point exactly the same way as her critics did. There was nothing unclear about what she said. The NYT just lacks the courage to defend the comments so is pretending her point was misconstrued.

For its great report on how the richest Americans pay no taxes, @propublica admits they have no idea who their anonymous source is who provided these tax docs - could be foreign actors, a criminal, anyone. But they're publishing anyway: and they should.…
It's always been a core principle of journalism that a journalist only cares about 2 questions: are the docs 1) authentic & 2) in the public interest? If so, you report them *regardless* of who the source is or their motives.

The NYT explained that here:

But like so many things, the US media abandoned that in the name of stopping Trump. They essentially refused to report on authentic docs that came from foreign sources if that would undermine Biden. They even cheered a blogger who voluntarily turned in her own source to FBI.

A majority of *Republicans* in the US now support same-sex marriage. 70% of the US population overall does. 84% of all people 18-34 support it. The US Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states but, politically, this debate is now over.…
Amazing how rapidly and radically this debate changed. This was only 2004:

And it was just 2008 when Obama, on the campaign trail, held an event with the evangelical pastor Rick Warren and told him he opposes same-sex marriage because, when it comes to marriage, "God is in the mix."…
