Fake media “doctor” apologizes for spreading misinformation on NBC, Mother Jones & MedPage Today
By Ethan Huff // Apr 07, 2024

A prominent expert "physician" who has regularly spread what we now know to be medical misinformation on NBC, Mother Jones, MedPage Today and a number of other media platforms was forced to apologize recently for lying to the public and defaming doctors.

Allison Neitzel is not a physician as she long claimed, by the way, and is hardly an expert at anything except propaganda, we now know. As such, she is now a shamed propagandist who is having her day in the court of public opinion.

As explained by The Disinformation Chronicle, Neitzel played a prominent propagandist role throughout the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) "pandemic."

Neitzel's initial claim to fame involved CNN and allegations she made at the beginning of the "pandemic" about how Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was supposedly spreading coronavirus "misinformation."

"Rodgers said he was allergic to one of the vaccine ingredients and didn't need to be vaccinated because he had already been sick with COVID, however, this was almost a year before the CDC stated that prior infection was no different than being vaccinated," writes Paul D. Thacker.

"Despite spreading false information about Rodgers, Neitzel's letter and purported medical bona fides proved catnip to reporters at MedPage Today, Mother Jones, and NBC, who quoted her as a physician exposing medical misinformation. Columns Neitzel has written for websites WhoWhatWhy and Science-Based Medicine also claim she is a physician focusing on disinformation."

(Related: Remember when the British Medical Journal [BMJ] called for "behavioral interventions" online in order to "reduce vaccine hesitancy driven by misinformation on social media?")

The real disinformation was her credentials

Shortly after Neitzel posted her "apology" to X is when Thacker learned that she is not even a real doctor. The reason the word "apology" is in quotes is because Neitzel never actually apologized for her wrongdoing, but instead wrote along the lines that she is sorry people found out about it.

"I regret if anyone understood the statements as accusations that any of them had engaged in fraudulent professional or business practices," Neitzel wrote.

Though she technically meets the legal requirements for being a "physician" in the state of Wisconsin, Neitzel never completed her training, yet appointed herself as an "expert physician" to debunk coronavirus "misinformation."

The aforementioned media outlets, along with many others, would routinely cite Neitzel as an "expert physician" in their efforts to "debunk" COVID "misinformation." They all did it again and again, failing to tell viewers and readers the truth about who Neitzel really is.

The furthest Neitzel got in her medical training, as far as we can tell, was her third year of medical school in which she "helped teach young students how to use blood pressure cuffs, listen to heart and lung sounds through the use of a stethoscope, (and) how to perform CPR."

None of this qualifies her to make any kind of declarations pertaining to COVID or the associated "vaccines." And yet Neitzel was cited more times than we can count in media article after media article about all the "misinformation" that was supposedly spreading about COVID and the jabs on social media.

"I wonder how many people believed Neitzel's misinformation or the legions of other so-called experts that spewed lies about the safety and efficacy of the shots?" one commenter wrote about these bombshell revelations.

"How many believed their debasing lies about doctors who were attempting to warn the public that the shots weren't safe? How many of those people became disabled, harmed or died? This isn't just a little error of judgement. It's much bigger than that."
