Elon Musk exposes cozy working relationship with Anthony Fauci’s wife Twitter CEO Elon Musk has responded to a post on the platform that claimed White House chief medical adviser Dr. The Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has never been a liar or a dishonest person.
Entrepreneur and moderate Republican backer Marc Andreessen posted a tweet containing a screengrab of the Fauci aid claiming that it is neither accurate nor fair to claim that Fauci has ever lied, to which Musk has called Congress.
A September 2021 report stated that Fauci had ‘lied’ to Congress about the Wuhan lab research funding, as he was accused of doing after the National Institutes of Health released a research proposal. Denied studies that could make coronavirus more dangerous to humans.
The documents were obtained and released by The Intercept on Tuesday after launching a FOIA lawsuit. Richard Ebright, Board of Governors professor of chemistry and chemical biology at Rutgers University and laboratory director at the Waxman Institute of Microbiology, told Newsweek that these documents unequivocally show that the controversial gain-of-function (GAN) study NIH Grant is being used.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, an American infectious disease specialist at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology, has denied this. The documents make clear, Ebright said, that NIH did not support gain-of-function research or potential pandemic pathogen development in Wuhan, as claimed by NIH director, Francis Collins, and NIAID director, Anthony Fauci.
Following his response with the PDF file, Elon Musk wrote, “Almost nobody realizes that the head of bioethics at NIH is the person who is supposed to make sure Fauci behaves ethically, a Wikipedia. and The life and career of Christine Grady, who is married to Fauci.
Grady is an American nurse and bioethicist who serves as the head of the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center. Citing documents obtained by The Intercept, Ebright told Newsweek last year, several sections of grant proposals and grant progress reports make clear that grants funded the concern’s for-profit research in Wuhan.
Meanwhile Elon Musk said this week that the former Twitter employee manages a channel in Slack called the “Fauci Fan Club” in which he recently praised the outgoing NIAID director during the COVID pandemic.
The New York Post reported that Elon Musk tweeted the claim in a thread that was highly critical of Fauci, who was accused by the mogul of lying about so-called gain-of-function research that some suggested had contributed to its dissemination.
Despite these burning issues, Twitter has an internal Slack channel implausibly called the ‘Fauci Fan Club,’ Elon Musk tweeted late Tuesday. He did not elaborate on how many employees participated in the Slack channel. During the pandemic, Twitter routinely censored content related to the coronavirus under the old management team, shirking information being provided by Fauci and federal health agencies.
Some users who regularly posted copycat research and information, such as Alex Berenson, were eventually removed from the platform, although they were reinstated after filing lawsuits against the platform. Perhaps with an eye on those events, Musk reacted strongly this week when the social media platform announced it would promote reasoned skepticism of scientific data.
Elon Musk tweeted that the new Twitter policy is to follow the science, which necessarily includes rational questions of science. Author Katherine Brodsky tweeted in response, also known as the scientific method, to which Musk replied with a bullseye emoji, suggesting she agreed with his response and that it was accurate.
