Alex Berenson is a former reporter for the New York Times, as well as a NYT Bestselling Author, who has been utterly vilified by the left over the past few years for the crime of openly challenging numerous Democrat-mandated narratives. Berenson appeared on the Tucker Carlson show on Friday evening to discuss his suspension (and possible permanent ban) from Twitter.
Berenson was suspended for publishing a report entitled, “Vaccines: Reasons for Concern.” That report can be read on his Substack newsletter Unreported Truths, here. Substack is a platform with ZERO-censorship; I’m strongly considering publishing my own newsletter there, but I digress…
For your convenience, I have provided a summary of the report below. I managed to capture the jist of it in just 6 sentences of Berenson’s own words:
“…the CDC’s own data shows that for every 100,000 vaccines given to young people… 200 will be hospitalized. In contrast, the CDC estimates that only about 50 out of 100,000 adolescents have EVER been hospitalized for Covid-related illness. Of course, not everyone has gotten Covid – the CDC estimates that about 1/3 of Americans have… Thus, if EVERYONE got Covid, it is reasonable to assume the 50 Covid hospitalizations out of 100,000 adolescents rate might be about three times as high – or 150 per 100,000.”
“But even the 150 per 100,000 rate is LOWER than the 200 per 100,000 rate of adolescents who are hospitalized in the first week after being vaccinated.
In other words, even if vaccinations stopped every case of Covid in 12-17 year olds forever, and even if they never had side effects after the first week, it is hard to see how the risk-benefit ratio supports vaccination.”–Alex Berenson, Unreported Truths, Vaccines: Reasons for Concern; Part 2…
Bereson went on to show that the CDC did not use it’s own numbers in the analysis it presented on Wednesday. If they had, the analysis would have failed to justify vaccinations.
Nobody, including Twitter and the CDC itself, has challenged the factual basis of these claims. Nevertheless, Twitter removed this from its platform, suspended Berenson for a week and may be considering a permanent ban of the former New York Times reporter.
Bat. Sh*t. Crazy.
