NYT Writer Exposes Sham Duke ‘Universal Masking Works’ Study Being Abused to Justify School Mask Mandates

RALEIGH – Currently, more than 50 school districts in North Carolina have elected to require the masking of K-12 public school students and staff, some of them reversing earlier decisions to make masks optional. The trend is fueled by a narrative that universal masking works to suppress COVID transmission in schools, a conclusion reached and propagated by authors of a Duke/ABC Collaborative study based upon…nothing.

The study in question didn’t actually study masks versus non-masks, at all. It did effectively demonstrate the massive waste of space and resources social distancing mandates have been, but, in keeping with the narrative, the authors and the giddy media are ignoring the actual implications of the study to advance the call for mask mandates in school. At this point it’s make believe, and this New York Times writer is calling them out on the blatant disregard for anything resembling scientific truth.

This is what it’s come to; campaigns to ‘Trust the Science’ advanced by ignoring, twisting, and making up ‘science.’
