The Lancet has become a laughing stock

By Norman Fenton and Martin Neil | Where are the numbers? | January 14, 2023

In summary:

  • On 6 May 2021 The Lancet published a blatantly flawed study of the effectiveness of the Pfizer covid vaccine on the population of Israel, claiming it was 95% effective.
  • On 17 May 2021 we submitted a rapid response 250 word letter explaining why the study was flawed.
  • After an initial response saying they would ask the authors for a response to our letter we heard nothing until 20 months later.
  • On 8 January 2023 we got an email out of the blue from The Lancet Senior Editor Josefine Gibson apologising for never having got back to us about the letter, saying that they had asked the lead author Dr Sharon Alroy-Preis (SA-P) to respond to our letter but, because she did not provide any formal response, they have decided not to publish our letter.
  • We tweeted The Lancet’s response and within 24 hours it got over one million impressions. We also published a substack article highlighting the fact we were now aware of additional problems with the paper relating to SA-P’s relationship with Pfizer.
  • On 10 January 2023 we got an unsolicited email from Josefine Gibson (which we can only assume was a result of the reputation hit they got from our tweet) saying “Thank you for bringing your letter from May 2021 back to our attention. We are looking into next steps and will get back to you as soon as we can.”
  • On 11 January 2023 (at 10:58) we sent an email to The Lancet’s Editor-in-Chief Richard Horton directing him to our substack article (which highlighted these new problems relating to SA-P’s relationship with Pfizer) stating that The Lancet was clearly taking a credibility hit surrounding the publication of the Israel-Pfizer study and its response to criticisms of it.
  • On 11 January 2023 (at 11:21) we got an email from Josefine Gibson apologising for the ‘sub standard experience’ we had with The Lancet. She said that, after discussing it with Horton, they were now inviting us to publish the original letter or an update to it, suggesting the update ‘reflect more current experience with the vaccine’.
  • On 12 January 2023 we submitted our updated letter (of an agreed 350 words).
  • On 13 January 2023 we got a response from Josefine Gibson saying they had decided against publishing the letter.

  1. It may have been laughable if it wasn’t so serious. The scope of this medical fraud has been a disgusting contempt for the multi millions (Billions) of people around the world who USED to trust their local doctors, and the Medical fraternity generally.
    Even the World Health Organisation has been complicit in this fraud. How can we trust them now?

    At the very least, when ever there is another medical crisis (and Bill Gates had another 10 Pandemics lined up for us, until he was gagged and is now virtually invisible), we must demand VERIFICATION from now on, peer reviewed, so that we can restore “some trust” in the Medical profession.
    And Gates, I’m sure, is widely regarded as an IDIOT.

    Once TRUST is breached, it is very hard to restore.
