David Gorski, professor of surgery at Wayne State University School of Medicine
, positions himself as a sort of science vigilante who goes after “misinformation spreaders” to expose them as spreading fake information.
(Article by Steve Kirsch republished from SteveKirsch.Substack.com
He is the attack dog for the false narrative promoters. Most of us “misinformation spreaders” know who he is. He’s been doing this for a very long time.
Unlike most of his peers, Gorski actually has real scientific credentials. His h-index is 29
Also, unlike his peers like Dorit Reiss who blocked me on Twitter and LinkedIn, Gorski actually answers the emails I send him.
However, in my opinion, he’s a miserable excuse for a human being.
Anyone who can read the reports in VAERS about people being killed and disabled after getting the COVID vaccine and refer to these very troubling stories as “dumpster diving
” has zero compassion for patients.
Where’s the actual study to support such an irresponsible statement? Did he take 100 VAERS reports chosen at random and prove that they were all fictitious? If VAERS is complete garbage, why does the CDC rely on it and cite it as proof of safety? Why in 30 years haven’t they upgraded it from “garbage” status?
Not only does Gorski lack any compassion, he violated federal law by submitting a fictitious VAERS report. He should be tried and convicted of a felony. At a minimum, he should have been admonished by his peers for breaking the law. But hey, he’s pro-narrative so they look the other way. The law doesn’t apply to him.
And if he were the champion of science he claims to be, he’d be the first one condemning the outrageous data coverup at Israeli Ministry of Health
. But he’s silent on that because any data that doesn’t support his beliefs is simply bad data in his mind, so there is nothing to be upset about.
Where was Gorski when VAERS triggered the “death” safety signal and the CDC missed it
? He was AWOL. He didn’t even cover it.
When the v-safe data was finally released where it was revealed for the first time that there was an unprecedented 7.7% hospitalization rate for people who got the vax
he said this is just the normal background reporting rate.
The fact that the CDC stonewalled for 463 days attempts to get data doesn’t bother him at all. I guess the CDC is justified in not following the law there because why give the data voluntarily in accordance with the law when you can put up a fight.
How was the American population safer because the CDC withheld the data? He’s silent on that point.
He sent me two articles:
- Antivax weaponization of v-safe: Like VAERS on steroids (Gorski)
- ICAN misuses v-safe data to mislead about COVID-19 vaccines (by law professor Dorit Reiss)
In the first one he claims basal rate fallacy, i.e., nothing to see here folks, it’s normal.
In the Dorit Reiss article, she claims the v-safe data is already summarized. Really Dorit? Where was that 7.7% number?? Didn’t see that one anywhere.
I asked if we could discuss these article “on camera” but he replied “Hard pass” and referred me to:
- “Debate me” bros in the age of COVID-19 disinformation (Gorski)
Which just says that “real scientists don’t debate live; they debate through published papers.” This is complete bullshit. I talked to Paul Marik who is a real scientist with an h-index that makes Gorski look like a moron. Marik said the best part of academic conferences are the sessions where they do open debates in front of the entire conference.
Even Gorski doesn’t believe this himself. When he wrote a piece about me and Andrew Wakefield
, he said Wakefield backed down from a debate challenge as a proof point that Wakefield couldn’t defend his arguments.
So when it suits his purposes, debates are proof of who is right! When he’s personally on the wrong side of an issue, debates are bad because the other side could be a better debater so things should be decided based on published papers.
