Scientific American backs Biden in first-ever endorsement
The 175-year-old magazine said it was 'compelled' by Trump's skepticism of scientific experts, handling of pandemic.
09/15/2020 11:53 AM EDT

Scientific American backed Democrat Joe Biden for president on Tuesday, the magazine's first-ever White House endorsement in its 175-year history.​
The magazine's editors wrote that they felt "compelled" to back Biden in his effort to unseat President Donald Trump. Scientific American cited Trump’s handling of Covid-19 and his skepticism of expert opinion and mainstream science on issues like climate change as the impetus for its decision.​
“The evidence and the science show that Donald Trump has badly damaged the U.S. and its people—because he rejects evidence and science,” editors wrote for its October issue.
“Joe Biden, in contrast, comes prepared with plans to control COVID-19, improve health care, reduce carbon emissions and restore the role of legitimate science in policy making. He solicits expertise and has turned that knowledge into solid policy proposals.”​
The editorial focuses much of its attention on the pandemic response and Trump’s repeated attempts to minimize the severity of the situation, which has killed nearly 200,000 Americans to date.​
“At every stage, Trump has rejected the unmistakable lesson that controlling the disease, not downplaying it, is the path to economic reopening and recovery,” editors wrote."..."​

Damn, I was always taught that skepticism is the first principle of science, was I lied to?

It is loathsome that a "Science" publication involves itself in politics.

The only thing this should do for folks is make them aware that they need to stop reading from this publication.

It's all bullshit man.

Yep, many are just commie academics with no real world experience.

I stopped subscribing years ago because they would not stop citing junk science papers from the IPCC even after the leaked climategate emails proved that they were totally fraudulent.

Scientific American totally has officially rejected sound science and become a junk science leftist political propaganda outlet.

Why do they even have editorials?

Some of their stands I agree with, some I don't, but that isn't the point. The point is, they cannot be taken seriously as a PURE SCIENCE magazine, if they are pushing the BIG GOVERNMENT, global socialist technocratic agenda.

It's all bullshit man.
Yeah, like all of these types of publications, they have gone hard left.
My mom has sub to the Smithsonian and asks me if I want the copies after she reads them. . .

I sometimes flip through them, but most times, I just don't care. That magazine always has a political agenda, depending on who is in office and in control of the Museum. I tried to tell her. . . she told me she doesn't care, "she just likes the articles."

.. . but it is the article selection, that determines your world view!

So does this mean we are going to die in less than ten years? Will it be Biden's Superstorm, or will covid kill every last one of us?
