Disinformation Must Be Called Out
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was one of your best posts!!!! Knowing you are the side of getting the truth out makes me hopeful....you are doing such amazing work...we are all better and blessed because of your efforts and contributions!!! Forever grateful...."Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth." Buddha 🌞🌜🌝
I am both disgusted and horrified by what I have just read in the CTV article by Morgan Lowrie. Thank you Dr. Bridle for being a voice of sanity and common sense in this grotesque societal manipulation that is being orchestrated.
This garbage study and its obviously manipulative intent really pissed me off when I first read it in CMAJ, and even more so when they started pumping it on the airwaves and in MSM. This is exactly the kind of thing you'd expect in China or North Korea...
Fisman et al. Is worse than disinformation…it is a species of hate speech. Call it what it is.
Hi Dr. Bridle,
A local physician has a FB group where he often shares Fisman’s material including tweets regarding lockdowns and other news articles. This past weekend he reminded everyone in the group to get vaccinated. I replied, “Thank you for the reminder. Assuming that 99.9% of the people in this group are vaccinated, and that we will all come in contact with the virus, is there anything we can do to improve our immune health for when the inevitable happens?”
He replied, “There is nothing we can do that’s been scientifically proven to assist our immune health nor is it quantifiable.”
I have asked him frequently to debate his assertions regarding the safety of these products for children as he himself is also frequently in the media promoting them. He has declined, and said that, “medical science is not settled via debate”.
Thanks for producing this so quickly.
Agree with everything you stated. And I get the sense that they want to achieve exactly what you are stating: "This kind of messaging will only fuel hatred and segregation and the potential development of harmful policies." Validating hatred and segregation and the development of harmful policies has been the goal from the beginning. To achieve it they needed to lure the majority into taking the vaccines, first. Which they did. The majority will not read the article just the title. And that title will be used to validate their views about vax being "safe and effective" and unvaxxed being the "enemy". in the words of Chris MacIntosh:" Human beings — regardless of race, religion or culture — like to embrace any belief that is absolute. This is because absolute beliefs are simple, easy to comprehend, and false positives that offer us a false sense of security. If we come to believe that a particular idea, place, or group of people are either all good or all bad, then we humans fool ourselves into thinking that we have got a piece of a particular equation all figured out. Such a binary viewpoint is psychologically comforting, allowing us to feel assured and in control. The more control we feel the more assured we feel so there is a feedback loop here which can and does take hold. "
That is a superb article, Dr. Bridle. It covers ALL the bases, by scientifically discrediting the work, pointing out the harmful effects of its dissemination, and calling to task the many parties involved. Thank you for taking the time to see that such a misguided (and obviously malicious) effort is thwarted -- using real data instead of conjured numbers.
I'm very grateful for your effort.
I have chills. My mouth is open. You are a hero, Byram. The world owes you a debt it cannot possibly understand that it does. Even those of us who support you here have only a fractional understanding of the costs, courage, and draw on your personal resources this undertaking takes. You are loved and appreciated.
Hands down the best article written about the ‘vaccination’ issue. Thank you Dr. Bridle. Bookmarking and tweeting
I am absolutely astonished at what's going on in Canada. We're basing policy on MODELS. What in the...?
This study (if you can even call it that) dropped my mood considerably.
From yesterdays thoughts "they're figuring it out slowly"
To todays "they're trying to tear society apart I had better get myself ready for the witch hunt"
Thanks for calling it out.
If these vaccines do not protect the vaccinated what is the point of getting vaccinated? Especially considering the number of vaccine injuries in the short term and that the long term safety of the vaccines is entirely unknown.
Two years of getting away with brazen lying has resulted in David Fisman being lazy and more arrogant than ever. Thus Fisman and his colleague have blown it. This latest con is too obvious. The College and others who may try to prop it up will sink into Fisman's fraud like quicksand. It just requires calling it out, as you've done, Dr. Bridle, and demanding accountability! Thank you!
Thank you once again Dr Bridle for an excellent and necessary article. I hope it finds its way to a majority of Canadians.
It’s so obviously flawed and manipulative. The timing clearly serves a purpose. I’m not sure exactly what they have in mind.
- increasing deaths of vaccinated Canadians?
- or the upcoming rally in Ottawa
- new measures
Again, thank you for your work!
Exceptional analysis. How is it possible that this sort of implausible “science” gets published?!
Thank you for digging deeper into the model to expose what common sense is telling you doesn't look right. Very sad that this made it in, but I have already known that much of what is published in peer-reviewed journals ranges from meaningless to nothing new to pure garbage. It takes critical thinking, expertise, and sometimes extra investigation to find the true gold nuggets. So much pressure to publish x number of times is what fuels this problem with infojunk. When work gets published, it means words, numbers, and figures are printed on a page. After that, you're on your own because some people have hypotheses that they want prove no matter what number they decide to tweak.
