The games continue.
In the latest example, the NIH gave conflicting legal reasons for blacking out emails sent by Scientist Kristian Andersen and Science Magazine Writer Jon Cohen.
Another round of emails finds the National Institutes of Health once again hiding records that might explain whether the pandemic started in a lab in Wuhan, China. In this case, the NIH redacted emails requested by investigative journalist Jimmy Tobias, who reports on federal environmental agencies and regularly litigates freedom of information requests. These blacked out documents add to a growing body of evidence that federal science agencies are hiding information about the pandemic’s origin, and further incriminates some science writers as government advocates.
WIND: science is dead in large part because government money and controls corrupt everything.
The presumption of innocent-unless-proven-guilty has long been a critical mainstay of the justice system in the USA, though now vestigial.
But the reverse holds for any government agencies with their long and sordid histories of malfeasance: a government agency should be presumed guilty until facts show otherwise.
