The BMJ recently published an “exposé” by Paul Thacker alleging patient unblinding, data falsification, and other wrongdoing by a subcontractor. It was a highly biased story embraced by antivaxxers, with a deceptively framed narrative and claims not placed into proper context, leading me to look into the broader question: WTF happened to The BMJ?

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has COVID-19. He claimed to be “immunized,” but it turns out that he had used a “homeopathic immunization” instead of a real COVID-19 vaccine. Surprise! It didn’t work.
Martin Kulldorff was a Harvard epidemiologist who spearheaded the eugenics-embracing Great Barrington Declaration for AIER. Now he’s joined the GBD’s “spiritual offspring,” the Brownstone Institute. Because of course he has.
