A Mexican comedian named Eugenio Derbez asked Dr. Anthony Fauci some simple, rather obvious questions during an interview last week about the vaccines that Fauci seemed unprepared to answer.
Fauci got more agitated as the interview progressed.
That may be because he is unaccustomed to being grilled by journalists, most of whom behave more like public-relations flaks shilling for their corporate boss than actual professional reporters. As a result of the U.S. media’s embarrassingly uncritical reporting on this new so-called “vaccine,” most Americans are woefully uninformed about the biologic substance they are agreeing to have injected into their bodies.
They are not aware, for example, that this vaccine has not been tested for long-term effectiveness or safety.
Nor are they aware that the vaccine will not necessarily stop them from getting COVID or from passing it on to another human being.
In the interview captured on video above, Dr. Fauci completely contradicts himself over a span of five minutes, first saying that the vaccine will “protect yourself, your family and your community” and then admitting that you actually aren’t fully protecting your vulnerable, elderly family members because “we aren’t sure yet” whether vaccinated persons can be asymptomatic spreaders.
You will recall that one of the most dire predictions made by Fauci and echoed continuously in the mainstream media last year, causing much fear and panic among Americans, was that asyptomatic “super spreaders” could infect people without knowing it. Now, we learn, thanks to this excellent interview, that getting the vaccine can cause the same type of asymptomatic spread.
You can’t have it both ways, Dr. Fauci. Asymptomatics can either spread the virus or they can’t. Which is it?
Fauci at several points during the interview appears annoyed and irritated that he is actually getting hit with real questions. His body language exudes “get me out of here, please, before I get exposed as the fraud that I am!”
One of the most basic questions Derbez asks is whether the new vaccines have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration or FDA. Rather than answer the question honestly and explain that the vaccines have only been given Emergency Use Authorization [EUA] and are therefore still waiting on official approval, he tries to pull a fast one on the interviewer.
“Which of the vaccines have been officially approved by the FDA?” Derbez asks.
“Three of them,” Fauci responds, listing Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson and Johnson. “So there are three vaccines that have gotten emergency use authorization so far.”
Fauci, after first answering in the affirmative that all three vaccines have official approval, tries to sneak in the actual term, “emergency use authorization,” thinking Derbez won’t know the difference.
But Derbez has done his homework and realizes the doctor is trying to hoodwink him. The exchange is priceless as Fauci gets further into the interview and realizes he is actually, for the first time, being asked real questions designed to get straight to the truth about these vaccines. They are still in the experimental stages and were only given emergency authorization for public use. This should raise the question in everyone’s mind: If these vaccines still don’t have official approval of the FDA, then why are governments and corporations trying to coerce people into getting them, threatening in some cases to fire people from their jobs if they don’t accept the shot?
Why did Joe Biden repeatedly refer to the vaccines as “safe and effective” in his address to the nation last week when we know for a fact that they were never tested for long-term safety?
What is going on in the world right now with these vaccines should be raising the curiosity of the entire media. But instead they treat Fauci like he is a little god, asking only softball questions and shamefully refusing to drill down on what he is actually trying to sell us. When he refuses to give honest answers or gives imprecise answers, they always let him off the hook without asking the obvious follow-up question. In other words, they would flunk journalism 101 if they had to go back and take the course today.
Maybe they should take lessons from this Mexican comedian on how to be a real journalist. We all would be better off and better able to make informed decisions about an important health issue.
