The reporter’s tweet of her story has several responses pointing out how quoting VDH, as the article does, is counterproductive to understanding Covid-19:

Yes, can you push this? One of my friends (doesn’t come to LGF) saw this, saw Stanford and posted it. I was able to push back and point out it was Victor Davis Hanson based on the article you posted.

re: #2 mmmirele

I posted it on my FB page, you can push it from there. I’ll make sure it’s public.

Geezus, but I guess full circle. The Hydrochloroquine Doctor That Looks Like Trump’s Personal Doctor is French.

Email question and response. Note: Victor David Hansen ‘has a hypothesis’
I’m going to listen to AM radio today and see if it’s going viral.

Hi Caitlin,

Just curious about your story and it’s formulation, how it came to be, and how Victor Davis Hanson from Hoover is involved in the story.

Her response:

Thank you for reaching out with concerns. Dr. Hanson was interviewed in this story because he has hypothesized Covid-19 may have circulated in California as early as last fall and the Stanford Medicine study will find evidence that either supports or contradicts his hypothesis. Hanson is a senior fellow with the Hoover Institute a public policy think tank and public policy is at the heart of managing this pandemic.

The Stanford Medicine researchers behind the study only responded to me via email and were too busy for a full interview. All parties involved say we will know more when results come back in the coming weeks. I will report on those findings when I receive them.

No one I spoke to advocated easing back on social distancing at this time.

I hope this email finds you well,

Thanks for the response. Ya’ll are super busy now so I appreciate the time. Did Hansen contact you about the research? He’s a war historian and pretty well studied but I didn’t know he’s from the med wing there. I think he’s been a local there forever.

No he did not reach out to me. A local paper the Carmel Pine Cone sent out a link to an article he wrote that included the hypothesis.

I searched the Carmel Pine Cone and found what I think is the story she’s talking about but it’s not written by Victor Davis Hanson. I searched a few issues back and nothing even close to the story and nothing from Victor Davis Hanson. The story I think she’s talking about is written by Chris Counts.

Directly addresses this story. Identifies Hanson as a wingnut but doesn’t get into the injection of wingnut BS into mainstream media.

And Ingraham spreading the contagion. 24 - 36 hours from now till Trump pushes it? Place your bets!

I did a timeline of the Herd Immunity disinformation, assuming the WSJ article from the Stanford doctors as Patient 0.
