This reminds me of Kara Swisher’s recent piece.
And it doesn’t stop. Here is Laura Ingraham, TODAY:
The “experts” are routinely wrong on issues big and small—on wearing masks, on reusable grocery bags…virus modeling and treatments. For years they defended outsourcing to China. So when experts issue edicts, remember their often spectacular record of failure.

This is anti-intellectual populism 101. It is also very dangerous and utterly irresponsible. Please listen to public health experts.
By the way, here is Naval War College professor Tom Nichols. I recommend his important book:
I wrote a book about why people are triggered by the word “expert” and people have taken issue with me for over two years by being triggered by the word “expert.”
The book is still selling well, thank you, and you can order it here:https://t.co/QT5P4jOjDy
