Darrell Ehrlick lectures us on masks and vaccines

Please note well: I should report at the beginning here that our writer Stephers, currently inundated in flood waters, has a much better and deeper view of Covid vaccines, leading one to suspect they are not in fact vaccines, but rather gene modifiers. Graphene oxide has been found in them, she writes and backs with evidence. Somehow 5 and 6G is a tie-in. I lack her abilities in that area. I urge you to read her posts to get a broader view.  Here I wrote about the vaccine as if it were a real vaccine, and by no means did I mean to sell her work short. I am a creature of habit.

I refer you to this post by Darrel Ehrlick, who was once the editor of the Billings Gazette, a longstanding Montana newspaper in what was once the state’s largest city. Travis Mateer, aka the poet William Skink, brought my attention to Ehrlick with this post, kind of a rant. I did my own rant in the comments. There I mentioned an interview I had heard, a comedian whose name I did not catch. As I posted,

[The comedian] talked about being in college, pre-med, when he realized he was funny and that comedy was his real calling. He wanted a degree, and so asked his advisor about what would be the quickest and easiest way out of college. He was advised to switch to journalism.

I then go on to refer to Dunning-Kruger, the study wherein it was determined that people of low intellectual ability are not capable of realizing their own intellectual shortcomings due to … low intellectual ability.

I have no doubt that Ehrlick’s office is  lined with diplomas and honors, maybe awards. As professions go, journalism is perhaps the least self-aware, and also one that hands out awards to one another like Halloween candy. It is also a very smug profession, and as we all know, smugness, while annoying, is also a defense mechanism used to hide deep insecurity. On some level, do journalists suspect they are frauds?

Coffee without the cream

Last weekend there was a video presentation by Drs. Kaufman and Cowen, which can be located here. It is very long, and the technology they use, called Webinarjam, is clunky. Even though it is now in replay mode, you cannot fast forward or go back. There is on the right hand side a comment thread, but they roll by so fast you cannot read them, nor can you stop them. Neither can you search the comments for keywords. I think the creators of the software deserve a hat tip nonetheless, so here is to you Mrs. Olsen’s fourth grade class.

There is at a point far into the video (it cannot be time stamped) a Q&A, and very shortly into that session a Dr. Wilson called and did quite a monologue on how Kaufman and Cowen are misrepresenting the virus isolation process. Kaufman asked him if he had a paper on the matter, and yes, said Wilson, he had linked to it twice in the comments. Good luck on finding those links using Webinarjam. In the end, Wilson promised to send the paper to both Kaufman and Cowen, who would read and report back.
