Atlas v. Fauci

Dr. Scott Atlas and Dr. Anthony Fauci are both members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. Dr. Atlas attempted to discredit Dr. Fauci by pointing out that “his background is virology, immunology, and infectious disease.” Dr. Atlas believes that Dr. Fauci’s limited expertise narrows his scope and diminishes his views. Dr. Atlas credits himself with a broader outlook as a “health care policy person” who can better “translate medical science into public policy.” Dr. Atlas is well credentialed, including a BS degree from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. And he probably does understand the world of lies, corruption, and political expediency better than Dr. Fauci. But while I am hunkered down in a pandemic bunker, I would rather be hearing from the virology, immunology, and infectious disease expert. If I needed radiology treatment, I would certainly be more attentive to what Dr. Atlas has to say about that. But we already have too many spin artists sitting in news anchor seats, running for political office, and lobbying government officials. God bless Dr. Fauci for his underappreciated service.
