Edzard Ernst Is Always On The Wrong Side Of U.S. Politics (So He's A Bullshitter)

"Our results suggest that belief in fake news may be driven, to some extent, by a general tendency to be overly accepting of weak claims. This tendency, which we refer to as reflexive open-mindedness, may be partly responsible for the prevalence of epistemically suspect beliefs writ large." 

 - from recent research papers on the prevalence of bullshit, and the book, On Bullshit, by Harry G. Frankfurt

FACT: This is NOT a man suffering from "reflexive open-mindedness".

FACT: This man has - which is why he was gullible enough to unleash SCAM (so-called alternative medicines) on the world.

FACT: Oprah has - which is why she spreads misinformation (including about SCAM) as a career.

I just took this photo of my personal copy of "On Bullshit" - in front of the 2020 Olympics - so you know I'm not bullshittin': it's my Bible. I've always had it nearby since 2005.
That Edzrd Ernst just discovered it - after he's been siding with Oprah and the Clintons, and the rest of the U.S. SCAM lobby - is embarrassing for him: it means Ernst has been railing against President Trump - in defense of America's true bullshitters - without ever researching who America's true bullshitters are.
It's little wonder he's been siding, politically, with Richard Dawkins' "Enemies of Reason" the whole time.
