He has held that position for 30 years. This means that for thirty years there has been one-man monopoly control over virtually all public health-related "peer review." This proves in spades what a clownish, lying, incompetent, corrupt stooge Fauci is when he responds to criticism with statements like "everyone I know agrees with me on this." Yeah, everyone who works for him and is paid by him, or wishes to work for him and be paid by him (with taxpayers' money). This means that "public health" peer review is a joke and a fraud. No other profession in the world would be taken seriously if one single government bureaucrat was effectively in charge of all the professional publications in the entire field.
And what Fauci doesn't control through government funding, other government bureaucrats at NIH and elsewhere do. They are Fauci wannabes in this corrupt, stinking, fraudulent field of "public" health. No wonder Dr. Scott Atlas, a real doctor and medical researcher, was so shocked at the immense incompetence he was exposed to while serving on President Trump's COVID task force and sitting through meetings with dopey Fauci and that goofy scarf woman. He told Tucker Carlson that the two of them seemed 100% detached from and unaware of the relevant science and did nothing but repeat leftist lockdown/masking/you-must-obey/jab-every-child/shut-down-all-the-schools-and-churches talking points without even discussing any scientific basis for any of it.
