CDC Director Rochelle Walensky Resigns After An Endless List of Disastrous Mistakes
The end of a terrible era
CDC director Rochelle Walensky has resigned her post as the head of the nation’s top public health agency.
The CDC as a whole has been an unmitigated disaster, putting out poor quality “research” and studies that led to nearly endless misinformation. The agency promoted masks, despite evidence they don’t work, and created onerous recommendations on school openings.
But Walensky was perhaps the most obvious face of the CDC’s unimaginably bad work and commitment to pseudoscience.
Her efforts caused immense harm, accomplishing almost nothing of value in the process. If anything, she contributed to the rapidly diminishing trust in public health institutions and expertise.
Progressives and left wing media outlets idolized Walensky because she told them what they wanted to hear. But in reality, she made mistake after mistake that proved embarrassing and helped ensure that people would ignore their guidance.
And in honor of her resignation, it’s worth revisiting some of her most obvious disasters.
