@kpeace The Washington Post has recently noted that the CDC is making unsupported claims in support of re-masking. https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/breakthrough-infections-cdc-data/2021/07/28/dcaaa6b2-efce-11eb-a452-4da5fe48582d_story.html
So everyone is agreeing that Fauci lied and the only disagreement is about his motives?
I don't have a bone in this fight. But until now the US Right was labeled as spreading misinformation when they claimed that Fauci was lying. Now Slate, a leftist publication, switching direction and saying that the US Right were tight all along...

@kpeace I wonder why Yahoo is giving the preview headlines in French when the article is in English. Maybe because Liberdon is based in France?
In New Hampshire, the vaccination rate is so high and the COVID rate so low that it's easy to forget about states where lots of people are determined to get sick. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/usa/new-hampshire/
Interesting detail in this Baltimore Sun article on the Jan. 6 riot: It gives the cause of death, at least in broad terms, for everyone who died in connection with the event _except_ Brian Sicknick. Major news outlets spread the claim that he died of being hit by a thrown fire extinguisher, but it was ultimately ruled he died of natural causes. https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/nation-world/ct-aud-nw-nancy-pelosi-liz-cheny-capitol-attack-probe-20210723-cp6eu3dqujb43ihgw27mz5f23a-story.html#nt=latestnews

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
