Skip to comments.Dubious Coronavirus Experts Run Amok In Pro-Trump Media (HuffPo Attacks Dr. William Grace, Greg Rigano, Dr. Oz, Dr. Marc Siegel, etc.)

At a time when doctors, nurses and health care professionals are working to exhaustion and risking their own safety to treat the COVID-19 outbreak, Fox News and other pro-Trump media outlets have repeatedly given a platform to dubious coronavirus experts with phony or misidentified medical credentials.
This week, Fox News host Laura Ingraham featured Dr. William Grace, who was billed as an oncologist with Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, to talk about the use of hydroxychloroquine ― an unproven drug treatment that President Donald Trump has repeatedly praised.
Grace talked about the situation in the trenches and suggested that he had been administering hydroxychloroquine treatment, saying were all using it, especially for desperately ill people.
But while Grace is a doctor, he is not an employee of Lenox Hill Hospital, and it is unclear what firsthand knowledge he has of the crisis.
He is not employed by Lenox Hill Hospital or Northwell. He is a private physician who has admitting privileges. His views are his own and do not represent those of our organization, a spokesperson from Lenox Hill told HuffPost.
Grace did not respond to HuffPosts request for comment on how he is involved in treating coronavirus, whether he has personally administered hydroxychloroquine or how he came to be identified as an employee of Lenox Hill.
Fox News issued a correction on one article citing Grace, noting it had incorrectly stated his relationship with the hospital. But another post with the transcript of Ingrahams segment remains online without correction. Ingraham tweeted Graces claims about Lenox Hill, which were widely shared and picked up by other outlets. Ingraham did not issue a correction or delete her tweets.

Pro-Trump media? What on earth is this writer smoking?
Got it the unsourced lying by anecdote claims from some unnamed “ER Nurse” is ok, ON THE RECORD statements by professional sources is “hype”.
The Huff post really has degraded themselves to the point of complete zabsurity now
Guy on the left looks like he was found on a park bench in Daytona and was given a lab coat.
Dr. Oz has been a leftist favorite for years, hasn’t he?
Until he says something the left doesn’t like.
So Huffpost is harassing hospitals in a time of crisis to Dox the FOX docs.
This is probably the event when they set out a large table with white lab coats for the attendees to wear during O’Bummer’s comments. I remembering looking at that on TV and wondering why would they have that right out there for all to see (should have been something they would want to hide).
And herein lies my distrust with how this is being handled.
When the media and the Dems want to keep us in permanent lockdown then you know what is going on. Discrediting any doctor or expert who doesnt support that narrative is essential.
Funny how the media lives to write stories based on unnamed experts and studies in their headlines. Then when you get into the stories you soon find that their studies or experts are either from China or comprise their newsroom.
What does medical expert Jon Gruber think?
RE: What does medical expert Jon Gruber think?
Who the heck is he?
Dr. Siegel dubious??????
This clown is committing reputational suicide writing that kind of garbage.
10 min. earlier all four of those people had just left the Lincoln Memorial and were on the White House tour.
“...Dems want to keep us in permanent lockdown...”
No! only until November
Lol. All of life is now based on whom one voted for.
