Fox was not to blame for this in any way. The producer apologized to me after. One can heard the moderator in the background saying that guests shouldn't attack guests. Fox was blind-sided too. This was not even the topic to be discussed - which was censorship -and the pressure on Spotify to now censor their podcasts, including censorship of Joe Rogan. That is 270 people in the science, medicine, healthcare write a letter complaining and then main stream media calls for Spotify to censor their podcasts.

This is a conversation that needs to happen now. As Spotify is now having Rolling Stone calling for them to censor for "public health reasons" If Spotify goes down that garden path, we all lose another alternative news source. That would be huge.

If Spotify censors because 270 doctors write a letter, but ignores the 16,000 that have signed the declaration - it would be a new low in the censorship battle. The move towards hard authoritarianism that this country and many countries in the world are moving towards is real. That is authoritarianism to maintain fascist (really Oligarch) control of big tech, pharma and social media. This is not about public health policy. To remind people, the censorship includes covering up a lab leak that kills millions of people (intensional or not?). They are covering up about why the USA has one of the highest death rates in the world, why the USG has stopped/suppressed early treatment, why the USG refuses to study the adverse events or allow reporting on the adverse events, why Fauci/Collins are allowed to conduct smear campaigns by using big media (such as against the authors of the Great Barrington Declaration), etc. The list goes on and on.

Instead of that discussion, I had Berenson attacking my credentials and early treatment.

Yeh, that seems like controlled opposition to me.

The question did someone who paid him to do that?

I'm shocked he did that--it looked very bad and unprofessional. Thank you for throwing the facts and evidence right back at him, and then redirecting the conversation back to the topic of censorship.

If AB doesn't post an apology or at least an explanation within 24 hours, he is co-opted and let's move on. There is too much important work to do by the esteemed Dr. Malone to deal with this trash. AB can beg for his job back at the New York Slimes or be a talking head at CNN for his next moment of fame.

Seriously, that was just gross. he came off as an opportunist trying to keep a foot in both sides, so he can perhaps regain some of his "friends and and influence" on the left while not totally losing the support from the free speech adherents on the right. Pick a side dude. Attacking probably the most selfless participant in this war right now (Dr. Malone) just comes off as sleazy and gross. I lost 90% of the respect I had for AB, over the course of ONE TV segment.

Dr. Malone- Please, Talk with Alex and ask him why and where he got that information. Please clarify what happened. You are both on the same side of Good. We need both of you and no one should be cancelling our unsubscribing from Alex to show loyalty to you and I hope you convey that sentiment here to your group.

How do we know he is not a plant to divide the opposition to this CoVID propaganda? Why should Dr. Malone talk to him? Alex smeared Dr. Malone. So it Alex's turn to apologize. I just canceled my subscription to him.

I am in agreement with this, at least for now. I still believe that at the heart, Alex and Dr. Malone are fighting for the same thing. I would like to see Alex apologize for choosing that forum--incredibly inappropriate and damaging.

I agree!!! He doesn’t believe there was election fraud. Whose side is he really on? I see the election fraud as related to covid and all that has occurred in the last 2 years. He made his mint from the book and subscriptions, perhaps now ALL he really cares about is HIMSELF! I don’t trust him.

Yes. I didn't vote for Trump, but the 2020 election was obviously stolen using several techniques:

1) the decision to scare-monger a virus that had been circulating world-wide for a year and a half into a pandemic and emergency that could justify onerous policies including unsolicited mail-in ballots in many cases not even signature matched. This allowed deep state actors first to steal the Democratic nomination and later for mules to stuff drop boxes with fraudulent ballots and get them counted.

2) a summer of riots unconcerned with the "pandemic" and an objective of discrediting DJT as either a dictator or ineffectual.

3) suppression of anything negative about Biden including Tara Reade, Hunter's laptop and Biden's own bragging that he interfered in an internal Ukrainian investigation that might have unearthed his son's shenanigans.

4) the false report that DJT called out the guard to clear rioters from the streets so he could have a photo-op.

Even Time magazine admitted that the election was "fortified," with never-Trump Republicans like Lawrence Wilkderson making significant contributions.

I disagree there. One of the problems with society these days is that bad behavior is not punished. Unsubscribed.

No, they are not. Alex Berenson is much like Bari Weiss, trying to preserve the reflexively leftist worldview while having to make common cause with us troglodytes. It makes him nervous to be on Fox and not sliming conservatives, got it? The two of them should be rejected utterly by the Right. All their monetization now comes from us, let's save our cash for actual thinkers and leaders like Dr. Malone. Journalists used to be considered low people in general due to their famously bad ethics and practices. For some reason people have decided that they are something more. But all they do is talk about things others do, yes? That's not much when it comes right down to it. Compared to the work of Dr. Malone? It's not even worth a giggle to compare the two. Stop following Berenson. Yay - he hates it when the govt lies to us and kills us. How does this make him a hero? Cuz he couldn't work in the most dishonest, political journalistic hellhole anymore? The NYTimes has been garbage forever. There is a great book on it, The Gray Lady Winked. It catalogues the shameful history of that rag and it's arrogant and dishonest leaders. Like if you work there at all, you are a lowlife. Perhaps with an Ivy degree, but a lowlife nonetheless.

Dr. Malone - so sorry you had that experience with Alex. I was one of his original subscribers. I cancelled my subscription and his email. He has become totally self absorbed unfortunately because I think he has information that is valuable but his need to be so cutting and cruel out weigh his information. Last I looked at the count it appears about 800+ subscribers have ended their subscriptions, they were offended at the way he spoke to you. No one objected that he had a differing view it was his manner. Keep up the good work and remember the team that squarely appreciates and supports your work. Onward! The ship is turning!!!

Another amazing aspect is that Berenson had hardly anything to say about his own lawsuit against Twitter, even though he posts regular updates on his Substack.

Why would he miss the opportunity to talk about his own battle against censorship? Certainly that would've been more interesting to Fox listeners, than the gratuitous BS about Malone and Ivermectin and the other pablum he came up with.

I dropped my paid subscription to Berenson's Substack weeks ago, because of his pot-shots against anyone with questions about election integrity. It's fashionable right now for Democrats to argue that voting machine totals are the Sacred Truth. But it's no more true now than it was when Dubya was elected, or any other time.

And if I hadn't quit paying then, I would've quit when he made brief, ridiculous quips against Ivermectin and early treatment.

When those things happened, I wasn't completely alone in complaining. But it was nothing compared to the hundreds of subscribers who are protesting against this latest outrage.

If Berenson doesn't make some sort of reply, it makes it completely clear that he doesn't care what his readers think, and he doesn't care how much revenue he gives up. What sort of author doesn't care about his readers, and about his income?

It does seem that the evidence supports Malone's bold accusation. Something or someone else is buttering Berenson's bread.

I agree with you. I noticed his arrogant comments before and hoped he would get a better perspective. His arrogance is unfortunate he has many talents which would be really helpful now but he can’t stop. It’s his greatest weakness unfortunately .

Alex has a tendency to say what he thinks. He's not always right, but he is consistent in his approach. His fearlessness is what he is about. If Spotify attempts to censor this, it won't change what happened and it will be out for there for all-time for everyone. Their censorship will simply drive up interest among the population that already does not trust the Mainstream Media (latest poll shows only 10%). The MSM, as mouth-pieces for the deep state, understand they have completely and forever lost their credibility and history tells us when they begin to censor, its over for them. It's only a matter of time. We must talk to each other and ignore "trusted sources". The generations that came before us has used the entire system of slavish respect for "credentials" to produce scientists who can't science, teachers who can't teach, journalists who can't investigate and an economy that is not working and is going to break down. Each of us must listen to the evidence of our sources and decide what is truth. Dr. Malone, you are easily the most credible person in this battle right now, not because of a patent that was issued 33 years ago, but because of your careful, cautious, scientific approach that is not coming from a place of fear or desire to control or self-promote. Ignore this. Let Alex be Alex.

Disagree. Alex is fearless and says what he thinks. He also clearly stated that everyone should have the right to offer their opinion & facts and that healthy debate was needed. Don’t fall into the trap the Deep State sprang on the Tea Party, which ended up grenading the movement until Trump brought it back to life under a different title. Alex can say what he thinks and time & debate will determine truth. The issue is censorship! Truth is not a cult.

Fearless means you say what you think and don't temper your words or thoughts for fear of .... things like this. Look, Dr. Malone is rising to the forefront right now. He's already suffered a ham-fisted attack by the Atlantic Magazine, which is one of the primary mouth-pieces for the deep state. All Alex did was throw out a couple of general statements that could have been a capsulation of the Atlantic attack. He did not call for Dr. Malone to be censored ... he allowed him to respond and stated very clearly the main issue: censorship and why we should all be against it. The issue isn't whether Alex agrees with Dr. Malone 100% or not. It's about scientific discourse that leads to truth. Both Alex & Dr. Malone are on the same side of that fence, period. If your goal is to simply create an echo chamber, where everyone agrees with 100% of everything you think, you are going to be no better off than the Marxist parasites that the globalists have so skillfully manipulated into an offensive weapon. Don't let them divide you. Welcome dissenting opinions & voices. Dr. Malone will face much harsher criticism & outright lies as time goes on. He handled himself well against Alex. In the long run, perhaps this was a good thing. Understanding that there are always conflicting agendas & positions at play at any given time is part of entering the public arena.

He's perfectly well entitled to be fearless if he has the facts on his side. If he's going to spout CNN/MSNBC talking points that have long ago been shown to be false, he's not "fearless" he's "full of **it".

If he feels like taking on Malone or anybody else in the world and he has the truth on his side, then I would listen to his arguments, no matter the reputation or credentials or connections of his target. If he's going to spout baseless crap, then he's someone not worth listening to.

I've been a free subscriber to Berenson for a month or so. My goals for this weekend included 1. sign up for Spotify and listen to the Malone interview, and 2. throw a few bucks Berenson's way. I guess I can scratch #2.

Exactly. There are so many head-scratching elements to this. It would be different if he was brought on to oppose you. It would be different if the moderator had asked him what he thought of your credentials. It would be different if that was Central to your claims about the vaccines. This was completely out of left field, literally uncalled for, off topic and had nothing to do with the central truth that both you and he are driving at. Did you have any previous inklings publicly or privately that he felt this way? Not that it really makes any difference - he didn't need to bring this up. Basically you and he were on the same side heading out to battle and he turned and thrust his sword into you. With allies like that who needs enemies?

Agreed - that attack was planned and reeked to high hell of his being 'paid off' - financially or in a 'we'll take care of you' way, who knows? I have read his stuff for a bit and he does do some great analysis so I do not buy that he was just too stupid to know what he was doing.

I was surprised Alex said what he did, especially considering the evidence that IVM works against covid-19 is overwhelming. I don't think any paid his to that. I think he was just being a dick in order to get attention.

The thing is, Alex has gotten it wrong before on medical stuff. Some years ago he wrote a book claiming that marijuana use makes you psychotically aggressive and said he came to this conclusion based the experiences of his wife (a ER medical person) treating drug overdose cases. I know people who smoked a lot weed when young. None of them had the kind of psychotic breaks Alex described in his book. In my experience, long term marijuana use makes one stupid and lazy (which is why I will not touch the stuff).

At the end of the day, Alex is a journalist and novelist, meaning he is somewhat of a attention-seeker. I suspect it was is need for attention that made him make the comments he did. In any case, they will adversely affect him. Lots of comments from people on his substack saying they are unsubscribing from his substack. He clearly put his foot in his mouth. Yes, his comments were quite unprofessional, not to mention unrelated to the subject matter at hand.

Expand full comment

I watched the video and I was stunned to see Alex immediately go off-topic and attack your credentials.

He is married to a doctor, and I got the impression from his book that she and her colleagues were unhappy with his going against the mainstream. I think it's more likely that placating his wife was the motive for this rather than a check from Pfizer. If it was about money--he's lost a bunch of supporters. He must have known that would happen.

I've looked into this a few years ago due to Chloe Swarbrick a NZ MP pushing it. It's well organized. The industry is currently controlled by (strictly speaking illegal) small distributors. Making it legal would, in my view, mean that it became a Pharmaceutical product. So I wouldn't connect them with Alex on the basis of that book.

Right, it was only as I was writing that comment that the possibility occurred to me, and if it's not intentional, there's always the likelihood that the studies were funded by pharma. I understand your argument, but with a non-patentable plant that anyone can grow themselves, the threat it poses to pharma is far greater than any profit they would obtain from selling it as opposed to pushing patentable pharmaceuticals.

Wow, you handled that beautifully. Berenson has a problem that he is out of his league when confronted with strong science (and scientists) because he lacks the background to understand it. I saw him on Joe Rogan also, and although he did an okay job it was clear that there were aspects to the data that he got completely incorrect. I joined the FLCCC with Dr. Kory when they first started up and there is no doubt about the efficacy of IVM. Berenson needs to educate himself or shut up on these issues because he only made himself look like an ass there!

To dig in his heels and state otherwise--without citing any specifics--is just crap on AB's part.

Alex is a Great Journalist and you are correct he is no Doctor. His understanding of Early treatment really lets him down. However when an interview that could really help stop censorship is utilised for some other reason one can only question Berenson's Motives. I was a Massive Fan and a Subscriber.

Is it cancelling when the person not only gets facts wrong, but actively promotes the bad facts? Do you continue to listen? I would call that being discerning and valuing my time. Why subscribe or PAY for bad information? It is not a disagreement on opinion and then shouting out for one "bad" thought they must go. That would be cancelling.

Expand full comment

I'm not sure switching subscriptions is the same as cancel culture. I enjoy Alex's Substack, but I too have been put off by his constant hawking of his book and his frequent exuberant emails heralding data that point to vaccine failures. It feels like he revels in that stuff, and that's caused me to refrain from paying for a subscription. Btw: Somewhere I either heard or read Alex say that Merck was the pharmaceutical company he respected most. I was surprised to hear that, because at the time, Merck had issued a statement warning that ivermectin (the drug it had sold for many years when it was under patent) was suddenly unsafe, without disclosing that it was about to push a "new" antiviral to market. I did some DDG research, but couldn't find a factual basis for Alex's positive assessment of Merck. Does anyone have any relevant info about this?

Expand full comment

If he said that, I don't know of a legit reason why. I think maybe they've been fined a little less than some others, but that's like killing fewer people than Son of Sam. Not exactly an accolade. They had Vioxx and have participated in every other major scam.

Their new "antiviral" looks like junk even in their own study. I guess maybe that could be considered vaguely less dishonest? Could just as easily be they realize they jumped on the train too late and wouldn't make enough to offset the lawsuits.

I don't see how any of the major pharma companies, or anyone they finance, could be in any way considered trustworthy.

Expand full comment

Cancel culture is censorship by taking away a speaker's platform, something that originated on campuses when (usually) right-of-center speakers were invited to give a talk. Leftists, if they couldn't get the talk "canceled" through complaints lodged with the administration, took "direct action," and would remove the speaker's ability to give the talk by occupying the stage, turning off the sound systems, pulling fire alarms and so on. This matured into big tech platforms censoring, like twitter or facebook, or by search engines burying links of organic searches.

Expand full comment

Alex counts on paying customers to read his substack. If I don’t like his position, the best thing I can do, is no longer pay for his service if it no longer serves me. That is Capitalism. Create a product people want/need for a price. If people no longer want/need the product goes away. Berenson’s product has become the buggy whip of the Substack sphere. Plain and simple Capitalism. He failed to serve his subscribers.

Expand full comment

I agree. It sounds like we're both supporters of the free market and understand that having a good product-market fit is important to success. I cancelled my subscription to Alex's substack today, too. There was wider conversation in this thread about not participating in "cancel culture," by canceling subscriptions. Cancelling a subscription because of poor quality is not cancel culture. Taking active measures to censor someone is more in line with cancel culture. That was all. Perhaps I should have included some preamble to my post for clarity.

Expand full comment

Yes, cancel culture is not it. Think of Alex as a young talented boy blinded by his own arrogance, and who was not taught how to respect the wiser elders in his own tribe. A good slap on the behind or bank account may help him see more clearly. Alex is an important member of the Health Freedom movement, but he sure needs a lesson in teamwork and sportsmanship. Insolent boys gotta be taught how to become men with tough love sometimes. He needs a little spanking, but NOT cancelling (yet).

Perhaps a better path would have been to invite Alex to a one on one talk. Division is not helpful. The bigger person is the one who extends a hand. We’re in a fight, ppl. It’s unwise to let ourselves be divided.

A truly brave person is against ALL MANDATES for the mRNA C19 Jab.

A truly brave person speaks up for the millions of ppl being harmed ( and killed) by these experimental jabs. Anyone looked at VAERS lately? Anyone looked at deaths by all causes since the inception of these jabs????

As an ICU RN, all I see, day after day after day are the injured & the sick. Some of my patients will never recover their health. Pharmaceutical companies & the employers that are mandating these HORRIFIC Jabs have absolutely zero liability. Lives are ended and destroyed. Families are left trying to pick up the pieces of shattered lives. No one cares.

Life Insurance and Long Term Disability companies are refusing to pay claims on ppl recently injected. Most policies contain clauses nullifying the contract if the payee partakes in EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENT ie the jab. No matter that these are MANDATED. No one cares. Nor are they likely to, not until tragedy comes knocking on their door.

The medical profession has completely caved. We’ve known about early treatment since March 2020. But the MDs backed down and caved to big Pharma & to Hospital Admin & their Marketing teams.

I work at a large teaching hospital. We’ve been conquered. No one objects to wearing filthy masks. Not one single MD will fight for the use of effective C19 treatments. Instead, they are going along to get along. They prescribe Remdesivir which craps out the kidneys, causing pulmonary edema, leading to ventilation. It’s a triple bonanza in terms of payments to the hospital and the MDs. The dirty “secrets” of healthcare.

The concept & practice of airborne & contact precautions has been perverted & lost entirely.

MDs had better start speaking up. The delivery of evidence based healthcare is being completely dismantled.

It’s foolhardy for ppl to think themselves protected from poor quality of care because they have wealth or a position of power. The US healthcare system is teetering on the precipice. Mediocrity and cowardice abounds. Everyone should care.

Hospitals are the new Gulags.

I am an RN too and I applaud your contribution to this discussion. After watching what has happened to doctors such as Simone Gold, and Dr. Kheriaty, both of whom have lost their jobs because they have chosen to stand for truth, it is sobering reality for most doctors. I wish they were braver and could stand up as well but I can't judge because I don't know their situations. They probably have families to support and are not in a financial position to be able to lose their jobs. Some physicians have been threatened by their state medical boards with forfeiture of their licenses over their support of early treatment with hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. This is unconscionable but it's the way it currently is. We now have emails, obtained through FOIA requests, between Dr. Fauci and Dr. Collins showing their efforts to ruin professional reputations.

Doctors and hospitals have chosen to stand by CDC guidelines as a way to protecting themselves from lawsuits. It's so sad. Everyone loses when disngenuousness takes precedent over the truth.

My advanced practice license is under review, for the second time, for spreading misinformation. I have been written up so many times for warning my patients and their families about the use of Remdesivir I could paper my entire unit with them. Educating our patients and advocating for them is part of our job. Or it used to be.

I don’t have a back up plan. I don’t have the wealth, power and prestige of an MD. I have only my conscience. I do judge ppl who remain silent in the face of evil. They may keep their jobs and feed their families but it comes at a very, very high price: the loss of freedom.

I think that is, perhaps, the understatement of the year. Most MDs where I work won’t even fill one out (VAERS). The reporting process is either “too time consuming” or the MD cites lack of “ evidence”.... usually the same MDs that are eager to prescribe Remdesivir.... which has now a wealth of studies showing it to be completely useless and harmful when used in late stage treatment

Yup they are and frankly for a lot of them that is a good thing. Too much stuff that can be dealt with fairly easily pushes people to go to Emergency. I see it all the time.

I don't know Alex personally and can't evaluate if he is a manipulative pseudo-outsider. Certainly he is not a troll. He is a liberal and thinks like a liberal although he may not be a Lefty. He is going to be most at home with the mindset of the NYC media circles in my estimation. Dr. Malone is certainly brave but so is Alex. His ego may have gotten too big for his britches and he was certainly out of line in denying Dr. Malone's patents for mRNA vaccines. However, we need all the warriors on our side we can get because we are fighting against a behemoth that crushes all it can. So, no matter how flawed Alex is, we need him on our side. The Greeks recognized that heroes had weaknesses, hence the term "Achilles heel." Everyone has one. Even me, and even you, and obviously Alex Berenson. We need all the Achilles' we can get on our side of the fight to save our civilization even if they are flawed.

How about we focus on all the good reporting Berenson does, try our best to persuade him of his flaws on this issue AND November 3rd election rigging? I know that we have instant reflex type reactions to seeing Berenson being so loudly rude and incorrect, but it is far better for us to keep him in the fold and mend his ways, or allow for them, than to banish him.

@Dabney, Dr Malone responded very well and very professionally in the heat of the moment. In fact, he only enhanced his presence and credibility by his response. I am very impressed. He was sandbagged, for no reason, in an interview that had nothing to do with such accusations.

To later write an essay publicly challenging the unprofessionalism of his accuser is neither a low blow, nor undignified. It is absolutely the proper response. You mischaracterize it "getting pissed and firing off..." Who else is better qualified to challenge his accuser? He should be personally and professionally insulted and angry. Much like the famous (infamous) quote: "Where do I go to get my reputation back?"

There is no dignity in allowing others to besmirch you or your credibility and reputation without calling them out publicly. Alex deserves it, and should issue an apology or issue his proofs. I agree with Dr. Malone, it is most probably a professional jealousy rearing its ugly head, as there is no other reason to bring it up in this interview.

How can you say "united we stand, divided we fall" when this interview was the exact proof of an undivided, un-united public attack? Clearly it is evidence that we should be very careful about thinking we are united at all in our opposition and our public leadership. We all seem to have a 'feel good' going in our community of dissidents; maybe we should re-evaluate.

Expand full comment

Very well said in addition to being stated sans malice.

That being said I have been somewhat disturbed, confused and concerned regarding all the players in this resistance. Dr. Malone strikes me as someone who is honest, articulate and extremely well spoken. I personally judge a person by how well they speak not what it is they have to say. He never repeats himself nor is the least bit rehearsed. I find him to be credible regardless of his accomplishments.

In the beginning there were so many players on this stage and I wondered who was making a name for themselves versus fighting the actual cause. Although I have the utmost respect for Peter McCullough I often find myself asking what his motives are. I get the feeling he is simply gunning for Fauci's job. He always mentions how he still see's patients - has done hundreds of interviews and written hundreds of papers. In fact, I believe he always states how he is the most published in the world. I just wonder how he has the time for ALL of this? Of course I now mean no malice as it merely alarms me.

You seldom hear and see Dr. Tenpenny who was one of the original pioneers. I use RFK Jr as my baseline. If he's friends with them (done interviews together) they must be credible. In fact he just did an interview with Alex which now must place him in a terrible predicament.

There was also a scathing piece about David Martin a few days ago. Now what? Last night as I watched a Reiner Fuellmich interview - he mentioned a tour coming up in March with RFK Jr. and how he just signed the contract?!?

I spend my life reading - I do not own a TV nor ever have and just find myself confused - who's on who's side especially given what just happen with Alex - does anyone else feel the same?

Expand full comment

You bring up an interesting point. The recent RFK Jr. podcast where Berenson and he hashed out disagreements. Could the timing of that just before this have contributed? Such that it prompted him to intentionally stir up trouble for the sake of a performance art "debate-as-necessary" installation (even though it came off as a very Twitter way of conducting himself)? Or he had the residual need after that podcast to launch his views against another prominent figure (got a taste with RFK Jr. and wanted more)?

Not trying to excuse what he did and how he did it. Just spitballing.

Unfortunately, and I may be wrong....FOX News probably has way more viewers than Dr Malone has subscribers.....Not acceptable on both sides, however, unless Alex apologizes on FOX, his comments will be a great CNN/MSNBC snippet for some time. Dr. Malone could have expressed himself on FOX the way he did on HIS substack, but in a classy way, he did not...and you could see Alex nodding in agreement it appears (I may be hallucinating there, but that's what it sort of looked like.) I am also sure that if Alex does apologize, that Dr Malone will do the same on his substack.

Expand full comment

I could not possibly - possibly agree with you more. Not only was it a low blow it was a lethal blow. The opposition will be playing this clip non-stop 24/7. It has taken so long and such enormous effort to finally establish a concrete, inarguable irrefutable counter argument and yet, it one fell swoop I can't believe the damage Alex created. There is clearly something more sinister than mere professional jealousy. I know he was relentless promoting his book (which became annoying to say the least - release countdowns., etc.) which for the record, RFK Jr. complimented him immensely during their interview. Alex did however say he wasn't in 100% agreement with RFK Jr either. He also stated he DID NOT feel there was something much more nefarious behind all of this which shocked me because ALL THE EXPERTS agree on that. What would you call deliberately withholding proven medications and lying about the number of deaths and injurie's? Sending the geriatric back into nursing homes only to infect others? Denying organ recipients transplants because they are NOT injected? And the latest, evicting families from the Ronald McDonald House who're also not injected? Barbaric certainly suffices. Has anyone also noticed Alex has said nothing on his Substack account. Maybe they banished him for MISINFORMATION!

Way down in the thread, I posted my hypotheses about what was behind Alex's attack:

Either:

(1) Alex has some kind of social mental malady that causes him to sh*$ all over himself in certain public situations

or:

(2) Alex has been "captured"

If that Fox interview was about (1), I will agree with you that the Doc's "name-calling" of Alex was unfortunate, but very understandable.

But if that Fox interview was about (2), then the Doc didn't go nearly far enough. Nor have any of us.

"Divide and conquer". Do even know what this means? Let me slow it down for you. It's when your enemy (Say Joe, CNN, NYT, NPR, etc.) interviews the Doc and Alex, and asks questions trying to pit Alex against the Doc and the Doc against Alex.

That isn't even close to what happened. Fox -- the sometimes friends of we the Resistance -- was hosting a puffball interview over a topic that all of us agree on -- Alex, the Doc, and every person on this thread. That topic was: censorship is bad, including censorship of Joe Rogan.

Alex, **unprompted**, took it on himself to attack Doc Malone with an easily debunk-able falsehood, and added an **unprompted** false statement about Ivermectin to boot. Fox never asked him about the Doc or about Ivermectin.

There's only two possibilities:

(1) Alex has ADHD or some kind of social mental malady that causes him to sh*$ all over himself in certain public situations

(2) Alex has been "captured"

LoL... I didn't say I didn't say inappropriate things in public...just that I didn't sh*$ myself doing it 😂 It's all good, I like my ADHD, I'm rarely bored, and if I am, I forget why!☺️

I guarantee you it was #2. The deep state is in panic mode and they are going to throw any and everything at this. Just look at the letter to Spotify about Joe Rogan. He's the biggest thing on the internet. And Spoyify is going to censor their golden goose?

Yes, Alex was wrong. Get over it. The righteous indignation being expressed here is just as wrong. Counter productive. You need to decide what your objectives are. If it's attacking everyone you disagree with, they'll certainly attack you, too. You lose. If it's winning the fight against tyranny, you're attacking the wrong direction.

The win is a loss if you bring people along that have intentions (personal fame etc.) who can ( and will) throw a grenade to destroy the win.

Success in battle comes from managing imperfect warriors. Those seeking perfection always lose.

But the whole point is that Berenson WAS wrong and deserves to hear it both here and at his own site. When someone acts like a perfect ass, it's only counter productive to pretend nothing has happened.
