"The case for the vaccines is built upon a firm foundation of...real-world evidence. The case against the vaccines wobbles because it is built upon a steaming pile of bullshit." Bravo, @DKThomp, for this masterclass in data-driven Berenson takedowns. theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…

Misinformation. One of America's wrongest (wo)men on the pandemic - Alex Bernson. Lots of company with Great Barrington death merchants, America's Frontline Doctors Mr. Pillowman, etc. theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…

Thank you, @DKThomp for doing the unpleasant work of documenting (a fraction) of Alex Berenson many many (I can only conclude deliberately) wildly misleading and flat-out-false claims. theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…

at the end of the day, the guy who wrote a reefer madness book in 2018 is obviously full of shit about everything else he touches theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…

In this piece, @DKThomp did what all Covid journalists have wanted to do for months: took apart Alex Berenson's ridiculous -- and dangerous -- claims, bit by bit theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…

There is 'wrong' & then there is 'Berenson-level wrong'. How Alex Berenson makes a living misunderstanding science & endangering people with myths & misinformation. A fantastic, fact-based article by @DKThomp. #COVID19 #scicomm theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…
