NEW: I wrote about Elisabeth Bik, a scientist turned science detective, and the time she challenged a prominent hydroxychloroquine crusader. Their feud illustrates a larger truth that COVID has made all too clear: science often fails to police itself.

We expect the press to hold us accountable, given our scale and role in the world. But when reporting misrepresents our actions and motivations, we believe we should correct the record.

I’ve been gone from the Chicago Tribune a long time and sometimes think I’m inured, but this paragraph and this story evoked such sorrow. What tragic, cynical stewardship.

Looks like Facebook is trying to front-run some damaging coverage with this thread. Important to note coordination of coverage is not unprecedented with major leaks. We've seen it recently with FinCen Files and Pandora Papers.

Right now 30+ journalists are finishing up a coordinated series of articles based on thousands of pages of leaked documents. We hear that to get the docs, outlets had to agree to the conditions and a schedule laid down by the PR team that worked on earlier leaked docs.

This point can’t be emphasized enough. The fixation on organized extremist groups obscures the fact that a large chunk of the country holds the same far-right views, minus formal membership. Some extremism analysts have called it a “mass radicalization.”

“…quarter of the more than 600 people arrested…charged w/ assaulting…police officers. But only a handful of that subset have any ties to extremist provocateurs like the Oath Keepers or the Proud Boys. The most violent…it seems, were the most ordinary”

The push to resettle the first wave of Afghan evacuees brought to the U.S. is expected to take months longer than first anticipated as a measles scare, a nationwide housing shortage and paperwork delays have slowed the process

Update: Venezuelan security forces have picked up six American oil executives in what their families fear is retaliation for the extradition to US of Maduro ally Alex Saab. The men had been under house arrest. A lawyer for the men says he doesn’t know where they were taken.

Tl;dr we’re just scratching the surface of the real human toll of Covid disinformation and those who promote/profit off it. For all those mocking “horse paste” or dismissing these prescriptions as funny scams off naive people, I wish you could see my inbox the past two months
