Elon Musk’s Twitter Files revealed how Dr. Jay Bhattacharya was actively censored by Twitter’s content moderators for medical misinformation – even though Dr. Jay is a world-renowned Professor of Medicine at Stanford University. His crime? Speaking out against lockdowns, mask mandates, and social distancing. Why did Twitter suppress a medical authority simply for conflicting with the CDC and Dr. Fauci’s narrative?
“Once they decided the lockdown was the only way” says Dr. Bhattacharya, “they thought that they knew best and that any tactic, no matter how unethical, was okay.”

“They weaponized the empathy… of young people against themselves,” continues Dr. Bhattacharya. “They said: ‘if you don’t wear a mask, you’re going to kill grandma… If you if you go visit your dying relative, you’re going to spread COVID. You’re going to spread COVID everywhere. They weaponized people’s empathy against each other.”
“I have an entire office full of books on epidemiology, public health, pandemic management,” says Dr. Kelly Victory. “I defy you to find a textbook in which you will find the phrase social distancing in the index. It’s made up.”
“They created this sense that every single person that you meet and know is a biohazard,” Dr. Jay explains. “Civilization can’t go on like that. You can’t actually have a functioning civilization where we believe that every other human alive is a biohazard to me.”
“That, to me, was just an astonishing reality,” says Dr. Drew.
“There’s a saying about power,” says Dr. Bhattacharya. “Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. What you had is a relatively small group of powerful science bureaucrats with incredible power over what the public perception of the scientific community was. And once they had successfully implemented that power in imposing the lockdowns, how far is it to say: look, now we are so smart that we should be able to impose it over everything else.”
Dr. Jay Bhattacharya is a Professor of Medicine at Stanford University. He is a research associate at the National Bureau of Economics Research, a senior fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, and at the Stanford Freeman Spogli Institute. His research focuses on the economics of health care around the world with a particular emphasis on the health and well-being of vulnerable populations.
