Also, this is nowhere on HN, after being on the front page a couple minutes ago. Wonder why.
Looks like it's still flagged. Does it not pass some criteria to be un-flagged?
A drawback of being a large, open, flat community is that discussions break down when there's, say, an 80/20 split or worse in the community. When it's 90/10 or 99/1, nothing is really possible. You'd need a smaller, more cohesive forum for that.
That sounds too… Suspicious. Thus, I decided to search the internet for the interviewed person, and first link is the "colourful" Wikipedia entry .
Judge it for yourself, but I am disappointed to see this kind of links in here. Luckily, it is already flagged.
What is colourful about the Wikipedia entry exactly? He appears to be a credible physician who has a different opinion on what early data is showing on treatments that hasn’t gotten a lot of attention. The interview is interesting and addresses these controversies. This looks like part of the scientific process to me and it would be good to allow people to make counter arguments rather than dismissing anyone with a different opinion.
Here's a more recent headline from June 8th: "Drugs including ivermectin removed from [India's] approved covid treatment list"
> FDA has not approved ivermectin for use in treating or preventing COVID-19 in humans.
