Johns Hopkins Professor Marty Makary won't debate me; not even on his own terms!
I said I would give him ONE paper in advance and we'd stick to that paper. I said he can review it for as long as he wants and he could bring as many people he wanted on his side. Response: silence.
Let’s be clear: they don’t want a debate.
I sent Marty Makary an email saying I would give him ONE paper in advance and we'd stick to that paper. I said he can review it for as long as he wants and he could bring as many people he wanted on his side to the debate.
Stunning, but not unexpected.
I also emailed Peter Attia (who I met years ago). He ignored me as well.
Perhaps I should have offered to do the debate blindfolded and with both hands tied behind my back to make it more fair? Or perhaps I should offer that I only get to speak for one minute for the whole debate? Would that make them more comfortable?
The whole point is to expose the truth. I fail to see why Professor Makary wants to keep the truth hidden.
He needs to explain why he won’t debate me after I agreed to all his terms.
I guess because the truth is too embarrassing to him and his institution. Is there another reason?
My email to Kaitlyn Schallhorn of the Santa Barbara News-Press
I also emailed the following note to the author of this news article that falsely claimed that were spreading misinformation at the StandUp Santa Barbara rally:
Subject: why doesn't your paper sponsor a debate on COVID misinformation
Is your newspaper interested in exposing the truth?
If so, why not host a debate between the speakers at the rally and your local health officials?
If not, then putting a disclaimer on your article that the paper is focused on promoting a particular point of view would be more honest journalism.
She did not reply. Heck, I was just trying to be helpful.
It’s hard to get a debate on COVID nowadays. I’m lonelier than the Maytag repairman.
