The Baylor Hospital COVID doctor who wasn’t – HotAir
Dr. Peter A. McCullough is a physician known for his appearances in the media and in front of government panels expressing some skepticism regarding the treatment of coronavirus, specifically vaccines. Has claimed either that to be online, in interviews, or in testimony before state legislatures, to be vice president of internal medicine at Baylor University Medical Center and / or professor at Texas A&M University.
There is a problem … it is not.
Baylor Scott & White Health, also known as Baylor University Medical Center defendant McCullough last week claimed that he had violated a separation agreement reached in February 2021 by continually identifying himself as a member of BUMC or BSSW. Includes appearances in Stew peters Y The glow where Baylor affiliation was mentioned. Court documents say the hospital has received multiple requests regarding its affiliation along with comments on social media criticizing Baylor’s work. The hospital system is concerned about the loss of patients and other businesses because McCullough continues to identify with them.
His affiliation with Texas A&M University is less clear. A&M and Baylor Scott & White are affiliated with each other through the School of Medicine. McCullough’s name is is no longer on the list as a faculty member or expert in internal medicine, COVID or cardiology, but it is not known if that ended when his separation agreement with BSW was finalized. Texas A&M did not respond to a request when he left Medical School, but this article will be updated if they respond.
McCullough’s attorneys blame mistakes made by the media when he makes an appearance. “Every instance Baylor refers to is something said / printed by a third party without the support of Dr. McCullough”, Clinton Mikel saying in a statement to The Dallas morning news. “Dr. McCullough does not and cannot control third parties.”
There is truth to this statement, however, McCullough Biography at America Out Loud lists its affiliation with TCU and UNTHSC, where it is a Teacher. It is not known when he began teaching there, but he has never been identified as a faculty member in his appearances, including an interview. published on July 25, where it is again listed on Texas A&M. It is not known how recently he joined the school, but you would think that he would correct his mistakes. He’s responsible, not to mention he’s more ethically sound, and it’s not that hard to tell someone, “Hey, I’m here now.”
McCullough’s attorneys suggest the policy as another reason for the lawsuit under the theory that Baylor wants to silence the cardiologist from commenting on COVID. The truth seems otherwise. BSSW Temporary Restraining Order apply for includes specific text stating that you are welcome to give feedback on COVID vaccines and treatment as much as you like. Baylor just doesn’t want his name attached. “This is not a question of freedom of expression or quelling dissent. McCullough can offer his opinions to anyone he wants, but cannot do so while claiming his current affiliation with the Plaintiffs. He haggled over that ability in the Separation Agreement. “
What’s interesting is the same day the lawsuit was filed, McCullough made sure to tell One America News was no longer affiliated with Baylor Hospital or Texas A&M. It’s funny how quickly things can change when you’re sued.
McCullough shouldn’t be silenced for giving his opinion on the coronavirus. You are more than welcome to discuss the treatment that you think is best. You just need to be honest about your employment status and affiliation. Errors will occur, but at what point does someone get unethical when they don’t correct the registry? Hopefully McCullough’s new clarification on who he’s with won’t be a flash in the pan and he’ll be more honest in the future.
This raises some important questions. What else is McCullough saying if he’s not willing to reveal where he practices medicine? Why are we unwilling to raise an eyebrow at McCullough’s comments, now that we know he is not at A&M or BSSW if we are also willing to show skepticism towards the CDC, politicians, bureaucrats and others about the more restrictive COVID measures?
Update (Ed): Here’s McCullough testifying in March of this year, identifying himself as part of Texas A&M and Baylor. That would have been a month after their separation agreement, if the date in the YouTube description is correct.
