It was not at all long ago that The Wall Street Journal was generally regarded as a crown jewel of American journalism. Now it seems to be just another part of the Right-Whinge Bullshit Machine. The intellectual dishonesty of the QOP and its allies is disgusting. Several months ago I demonstrated that a piece from AEI — supposedly a top-notch "think" tank — was guilty of the most blatant scientific fraud I've ever seen in any article which represented itself as research.It's that most effective of lies, the partial truth.The WSJ piece is complete bullshit and is anti-vax territory, a justification for ending most mandatory vaccinations. Reducing hospitalizations is and has always been critical.
The vaccine is not a magic bullet, making the vaccinated invulnerably immune. Our best method of fighting the virus, and all the attendant problems, is herd immunity. That requires a high level of vaccination across the population.
Writing that article, without mentioning that truth, is a lie.
And do we not hear an Infidel in this very thread adopt the "syllogism":
. . . If ONE person gets Covid-19 after vaccination then that vaccination provides ZERO protection for EVERYBODY.
Heaven help America.
