HIV/AIDS: Is the Media Catching On?
When I reported the Nobel Committee’s snubbing of Robert Gallo’s contribution to AIDS this month, I didn’t expect the story to go further than a few conservative blogs. But after reporting what appears to be the greatest scientific fraud in history, more mainstream media sources are finally picking up the story – or at least tepidly reporting on a few of the story’s actors.
BarnesWorld now reports that NPR, the Baltimore Sun, Herald Sun, Scientific American, The Times UK , Newsweek , Forbes, Washington Post, and Time have all raised the same question: Why did only one of two alleged co-discoverers of HIV/AIDS receive one-quarter of one 2008 Nobel Prize for Medicine? If their discovery legitimately merited Nobel recognition, why didn’t they receive the entire prize, and why didn’t the two co-discoverers share it?
The Nobel Committee’s action only raises more questions about the legitimacy of HIV/AIDS funding, an endless windfall that is fast approaching a $1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) taxpayer-funded industry that is entirely based upon Dr. Gallo’s unproven assumption that HIV attacks cells and causes AIDS. Even after the National Academy of Sciences published one leading scientist’s questions, the best Gallo’s pharmaceutically-funded defenders could do was blog their rebuttal.
Taxpayers can only hope that the media’s awakening will lead to more questions about the legitimacy of HIV/AIDS science.
