[See NewsBusters for more.] Baylor University's Dr. Peter Hotez joined Andrea Mitchell on her Tuesday MSNBC show to discuss Dr. Anthony Fauci's appearance before the Senate Health Committee. Responding to Sen. Rand Paul's questioning of Fauci, Hotez alleged that attacks on Fauci are also attacks on him and on science.
Hotez's remarks came after Mitchell asked about the CDC's "credibility gap" resulting from their "confusing guidance," but Hotez said those criticisms are not the same as "the attacks on prominent U.S. scientists."
