Fauci Awarded $1 Million Israeli Prize For ‘Speaking Truth To Power’ Amid Pandemic

So he speaks truth to power but tells lies to everyone else?

By Daniel Estrin, NPR

America’s top infectious disease official Dr. Anthony Fauci received a prestigious $1 million Israeli prize Monday, along with six other researchers who shared two additional $1 million prizes for their contributions to health and medicine.

The Dan David Prize, affiliated with Tel Aviv University, said it honored Fauci for his career in public health and “speaking truth to power” during the politicized COVID-19 crisis.

Fauci “is the consummate model of leadership and impact in public health,” the awards committee said in a statement.

The award sets aside 10% of the prize money for academic scholarships in each winner’s field. Fauci gets to determine the nature of the scholarships.

  1. It’s called kickbacks. Speaking fees, book deals, and award money is the palm grease of today’s enlightened progressives.

  2. Early on in the COVID-19 pandemic, Fauci lied, claiming “Masks don’t work”. Maybe his excuse was that he intended to save masks for the professionals, but notice what such an announcement would have done to a mask-making company: Should they turn on their machines, 24-hours per day, if an “expert” said “masks don’t work” ?
    I think Fauci should have said: “At this point, we should assume masks DO work, at least until we find out otherwise, but save them for the professionals who need them”.
