On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, journalist Alex Berenson joins Federalist Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss his new book “Pandemia: How Coronavirus Hysteria Took Over Our Government, Rights, and Lives.”
“There’s just a ton we don’t know but what we do know is that the public health authorities lie, they lied, and they were wrong,” Berenson said. “They overpromised, they were caught short by what happened in, you know, in the summer in Israel and what is happening everywhere else. And so they need to admit that they have essentially no credibility left with a lot of the population and the first step to getting that back is admitting that they didn’t tell the truth or that they were wrong.”
Berenson said he was censored by Big Tech for his work writing about COVID and often dogpiled by the leftist mob.
“The other clear reason that people were angry at me at least, I think it’s actually gotten worse, is that I was a traitor right? And I’m not really joking when I say that,” he said. “It’s painful and annoying to them that somebody who they think should be on their side, you know, is espousing these, I wouldn’t even say they’re conservative, they view them as conservative, points of view.”
