My (brief) appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live
In case you missed it...Jimmy trashed me and my friend RFK, Jr.
Start watching at 1:30
Kimmel says (at 1:47) “that the fact that your chances of dying from COVID are 60 times higher if you aren’t vaccinated might be making an impact.”
Wow. And he says WE are spreading misinformation?!?!
The data from the Pfizer Phase 3 trial says that at best, the vaccines provide a 2X COVID death benefit (1 death vs. 2 deaths) and that’s under perfect conditions (when the virus matches the vaccine), but the 21 deaths in the vaccine group were 24% higher than the 17 deaths in the placebo group which Kimmel didn’t have time to mention.
The only thing that matters is whether the shot is more likely to kill you or save you and the data consistently shows that the vaccines are more likely to kill you than to save you (see Incriminating Evidence for more examples).
Pfizer death numbers were unfortunately not statistically significant so they have to write off both the COVID death benefit and the problematic increase in all-cause mortality as “noise.” Except they don’t. The very insignificant death benefit is taken as gospel (and subsequently amplified by 30X by Jimmy Kimmel) and the more significant signal of all-cause mortality increase is dismissed. The data is interpreted based on the narrative, not statistical significance.
If you know of the randomized study Kimmel is referring to showing a 60X death benefit, we’d all love to see it as it would prove that the Pfizer Phase 3 study was completely wrong and should not be trusted.
Kimmel says starting at 2:05 when he mentions me is that you should ONLY take advice from doctors. Nobody else like scientists, engineers, statisticians, etc. count. In particular, Kimmel is basically telling people you should not listen to him since he isn’t a doctor.
Kimmel is on the wrong side of history. Not only is he attacking people who are there to save lives, he’s compounding his error by spreading misinformation claiming the COVID vaccines provides a 60X COVID-specific mortality benefit (with no mention at all of the all-cause mortality risk).
Anyone who cites actual science and data is worth listening to.
Qualified people who are willing to have their views be challenged by their opponents in an open public recorded debate are worth listening to. So far, we haven’t found any on the pro-vax side that meets those requirements, but we are still optimistic we will find someone someday.
