A closer look …

On That Censored Johns Hopkins All-Cause Death Analysis. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

If it weren’t for the censorship, I wouldn’t have got the dozens and dozens of requests to look at it. Now everybody is sure Johns Hopkins is hiding something. Hilarious.

The reason it was censored it particularly stupid, too: “… it was brought to our attention that our coverage of Genevieve Briand’s presentation ‘COVID-19 Deaths: A Look at U.S. Data’ has been used to support dangerous inaccuracies that minimize the impact of the pandemic.”

Yeah, sure. Ninety percent of the population is racing in every direction like extras in a Toho Godzilla movie, only in masks. Johns Hopkins thinks this level of abject irrational terror is just about right. Besides, everybody knows science means only have one unchangeable opinion on every matter. 

Funniest thing: they forgot, at least of this writing, to censor the YouTube video where Briand gives a talk.


Anyway, to Briand’s work itself. I appreciate the spirit, but don’t think there’s as much to it as some are hoping.
