Social Media Explodes After Ivermectin Debate Between Former NYT Reporter, Alex Berenson, and Dr. Pierre Kory
WASHINGTON, DC – Last Friday’s friendly debate between former NYT reporter, Alex Berenson, and Dr. Pierre Kory on Ivermectin was the most viewed VSRF Weekly Update to date with more than 19,000 online users clicking the link to watch it online.
The debate was the highlight of a segment that also included an intense one-on-one interview between VSRF philanthropist and founder Steve Kirsch and Berenson. The interview begins at the 15:00 minute mark.
Berenson is a hero to many having successfully sued Twitter to restore his verified account, after he was “permanently banned” from the social media giant for his criticism of Covid-19 vaccines.
During the interview, Kirsch, a free speech defender, said, “People think this Twitter stuff is boring…. but if we don’t have free speech in this country, we are done!”
The fireworks began at the 55:52 mark when another hero, Dr. Pierre Kory, joined the conversation for a friendly debate with Berenson over the effectiveness of Ivermectin as a critical component to early treatment protocols. Ivermectin has proven to save hundreds of thousand of lives from Covid globally, with one of the best examples being Uttar Pradesh, a state in northern India. “With only 5% of Uttar Pradesh’s 230 million people vaccinated by August 2021, early treatment home kits (which included Ivermectin) wiped out an outbreak of COVID-19 dropping cases by 99% in three weeks,” said Dr. John Campbell.
Some take-away quotes include:“I wouldn’t take IVM….but you should totally have the right to prescribe it and use it and talk about it.”- Alex Berenson
“In all my years, I’ve never seen a more proven drug than IVM…” – Dr. Pierre Kory
“IVM is a direct threat to a 100 hundred-billion-dollar industry!” – Pierre Kory
The debate garnered several hundred comments expressing support for the participants as well as applauding the simple concept of having experts with differing opinions argue their points in a friendly manner without fear of retaliation or of being “de-platformed.
“Refreshing to have a real debate – THANK YOU ALL!” – Barbara“ I can’t believe this is happening!” – Laurie “This was a very respectful dialogue. The way it’s SUPPOSED TO BE!!” – Paula
If you missed last night, it was a flashback to the 90’s – a time when well-intentioned people could disagree publicly and have different medical or scientific opinions.
We can agree to disagree on VSRF and survive to tell the story. Let people come up with their own conclusions based on what is presented.
