    Partly that no doubt, but far worse then that is it applies to covid and their responses in general in my view as condensed above. They allowed themselves to be politicized and weaponized for the pissing match with the orange guy, and we were caught in the middle.

    Also as I said from day one: When the smoke finally clears, there will be a lot of finger pointing and most of them will be right.

    I agree on the pissing match.

    Another factor is that things rapidly evolved as our knowledge grew. The general population isn't too bright, and when the advice changed based on new knowledge, they believed they had been "lied to" prior, even when it was explained how and why the new advice was in place. I myself thought "this shit is just the flu..." until it actually arrived and I got to see what it did even in healthy people. Never in the nearly decade and a half that Ive done this have we "opened up a flu unit" full of vented patients. Nor do I see the absolutely wild bloodwork from them. You can all but reliably spot a covid patient in the ER just based off of a coag panel and zero other data.
