    Thought that you might find this article https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...CMP=GTUK_email interesting to read. Twelve people - 12 - are able to have that much influence using misinformation via social media on those fearful of the vaccine.

    Facebook banned 3 of them. A doctor in that group is claiming all vaccinated people will be dead in 3 years. There’s many people on City Data forum that believe this garbage.

    Does that count the Russian disinformation specialists, one wonders. They work hard to cause chaos, and it appears they're succeeding.

    As for Florida which we are all supposed to emulate, they are only releasing case numbers once a week, most (maybe all?) other states are doing so daily. So they'll never catch a wave before the undertow.

    Yes I'm wearing masks again ... in the gym today, I'm vaxed, it's hot, it is what it is.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    RFK jr is the only name I recognize on that list.

    I tried in two places to access the list but it requires I give my personal info, and I am not prepared to do that. I heard the NPR story about RFK Jr. movie about black community's sufferings at hands of medical community, which he has asserted means black community should not get vaccinated--so I went and signed up to see that film, which then put me on his mailing list, Children's Defense something or other. So they have many doctors there saying all vaccines dangerous, and reporting lots of ill effects of vaccines.

    I'd prefer everyone be allowed to say what they think about vaccines, and not have this suppression of ideas.

    Now The Guardian won’t let me see the list, but earlier it did. I suppose it gives me X- viewings per month or somesuch thing.

    I agree with you, sunshine is a good thing, shine a light on the bad ideas.

    I was able to see the list--I recognized 3, RFK Jr, Mercola, and Northrup. Mercola is a "natural wellness" type MD, and Northrup is a new age-y women's health & empowerment guru. I have to admit that I'm surprised at how short that list is, but it probably speaks to the number of followers on their Twitter feeds more than anything else.

    Yes. I’d especially prefer that the White House not be in the business of flagging people they would like to see social media ban.

    They are mostly a bunch of grifters I would be glad to never hear from again, those I recognize (who doesn't recognize Mercola as a grifter for instance).

    I heard the NPR story about RFK Jr. movie about black community's sufferings at hands of medical community, which he has asserted means black community should not get vaccinated
    I can't imagine anyone saying "oh rich white guy and his trust fund, says black people shouldn't get vaccinated, well that settles it". Well off white people meanwhile ... they get vaccinated at high rates. Watch what people actually do.
