Provide evidence, not you personal opinion (about people not Fauci misleading over COVID)
Non-Fauci actors misleading:
Jed has posted a lot of the misleading stuff, and effectively falsifying health statistics, from a few Southern States that desperately don't want to close (fair enough - a political decision though IMHO misguided) and therefore cover up higher case rates, hospitalisations, etc. You can look back on this thread to find it. there is always a case for keeping stuff open and bearing the deaths, though I side with Jed in thinking it a short-term policy due to inevitable case rise. But it must go with being honest with people about what you are doing, not hiding the disease.
Trump's self-admitted "don't want to cause panic so I played down the virus" statements together with his documented private statements that it was very dangerous (I'm sure you have all heard the recordings from Woodward) again are misleading. They have done the US harm. When things are uncertain, and difficult, being straight with people is difficult too - but it is the best course of action. Leaders who have done this have survived better so far. The UK and the US, both with leaders who like to provide an upbeat positive message, have been not straight with people and the result is just a mess in both countries.
