AIDS denialists shut out of Senate hearing after winning “whistleblower” award
A pair of high-profile AIDS denialists were disinvited from testifying at a May 14 U.S. Senate committee hearing on laws to protect whistleblowers, people who speak out publicly against wrongdoing within an organisation.
Peter Duesberg and Celia Farber had travelled to Washington, D.C., from California to receive an award for their efforts to discredit factual evidence about HIV and HIV treatment. “These aren?t whistleblowers,” said a Washington DC, HIV activist. “They’re divergent thinkers who are 21st century snake-oil salesmen.”
