I just think it’s important to be honest and not nitpick lines out of a transcript to make a point. This has to be taken in context. The 12% positive rate cited is indisputably prefaced by total number of tests and how many of those were positive. This is then taken out of context because the “12% of Californians were positive for COVID” statement was clearly sloppy and should have been clarified, but, again, it was immediately prefaced by numbers nobody is disputing, so it’s not honest to then say the Dr was clearly saying 12% of all Californians test positive. Yes, he should have been more clear, but people should also take the whole claim in context. Ari then goes to use this claim the Dr never made to make a point about how he makes the same point (which, again, he never made) later in the interview. That’s just dishonest and it needs to be called out.
