Weaponized Redactions: What Is The CDC Hiding From FOIA Requests? w/ Dr. Jay Bhattacharya – Ask Dr. Drew
In response to a FOIA request, the CDC released documents about their Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR)… but why are nearly half of the pages redacted?
“The CDC does not want the public to see the details of the deliberation that produced their social media and other propaganda to advertise the MMWR study,” tweeted Dr. Jay Bhattacharya. “Nearly all of that is redacted in the FOIA dump.”
