In his complete and brutal withdrawal entitled “The worst man in the pandemic”, Atlantic writer Derek Thompson took several of the alumni New York Times The alarmist statements by journalists about the efficacy and safety of vaccines and presented them to real scientists. These experts have been quite frank in their appreciation of Berenson’s assertions.
“His argument is absolutely stupid,” an expert said of Berenson’s claim that Pfizer clinical trial data proved that a large percentage of patients had become ill with the coronavirus, pointing out that Berenson was in total pain. including a data point.
“Over the past few weeks on Twitter, Berenson has misinterpreted just about every detail about the vaccines to make the dubious assumption that most people would be better off avoiding them,” Thompson noted. “As his conspiratorial absurdity accelerates towards the finish line of the pandemic, he has proven the Secretariat wrong.”
Berenson, who has appeared dozens of times in Fox News prime time and even filmed a special for the Fox News streaming service, appeared on Tucker Carlson tonight reply. Before interviewing the spy novelist, Carlson took the initiative to attack Atlantic for having the temerity to verify Berenson’s dubious claims.
“It shouldn’t surprise you that Atlantic the magazine, one of journalism’s looser and corrupt junk, has new cover this week – in fact, I believe today – attacking Alex Berenson, because he read from another script, and this cannot be allowed! Carlson exclaimed.
“He’s joining us on our set tonight to answer that predictable, I don’t even know if it’s boring, it’s so dumb, but rate this hit piece on you,” the Fox star added. News.
Berenson, meanwhile, claimed that Thompson had “completely missed the point” before trying once again to argue that the vaccines “didn’t work as well or as quickly as people had hoped in. a country like Israel ”- despite the fact that Israel has had resounding success with its vaccinations, which has resulted in an almost widely open economy and the drop in COVID-19 cases.
“The story I’m telling is pretty consistent, and I really encourage anyone who wants to know where I really stand on this to get the booklet and read it for yourself,” Berenson said at one point, in peddling his “Unreported Truths” online “books.
After Carlson said Berenson was not attacked for making false statements, but rather because “you deviate from the approved script,” the ex-reporter suggested his opinions on the coronavirus were valuable even though they were were not true.
“Listen, even though I’m wrong on all of this – I’m not wrong on all of this – it’s helpful to have me, and it would be helpful to have other reporters asking tough questions,” a- he declared.
After Carlson continued to throw Atlantic, describing the magazine as a place “where free thinking ends,” Berenson said he was happy with the platform provided to him by Twitter and Fox News.
“Honestly, Twitter has been very good for me,” he said. “They basically allowed me to ask questions – and I have a few hundred thousand people there. You allow me, Fox allows me.
Berenson then concluded by imploring other wired news networks to get him to talk about the pandemic.
“Like I always say when I come with you, I love coming with you, I would be happy to go on CNN or MSNBC, anyone else, ask me the questions and I can manage,” he said. he pleaded. “The people who need to hear this the most are the people who don’t.”
Meanwhile, after Berenson’s appearance at Fox, Thompson took to Twitter to offer a suggestion to Fox News producers.
“If you have to invite Berenson on your show, ask one of the scientists and experts he tweets to join him on the segment. I can help you: I have their emails and phone numbers. ” he tweeted.
“The false claim that Berenson repeated tonight on Fox News – that cases increase after the first dose of mRNA vaccines – comes from a Danish study” Thompson followed in another tweet. “I spoke on the phone with its main author. She said Berenson didn’t know what he was talking about.
