Threatening doctors who offer their own opinions about COVID

WBIRThe Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners adopted a new policy that could result in disciplinary actions for physicians who spread misinformation and disinformation about COVID-19 vaccines, according to reports.

The 12-member board signed off on the policy on Sept. 21. It would keep physicians accountable for violating practice standards by suspending or revoking their licenses.

The official said they decided to sign the policy because "spreading inaccurate COVID-19 vaccine information contradicts" doctors' responsibilities. They also said it threatens to erode public trust in the medical profession, putting all patients at risk.

Anyone who wants to file a complaint against a health care professional can submit a form online or call the Office of Investigations at 800-852-2187.

Because asking patients to report their doctors for giving medical advice the patients think is politically inconvenient just makes so much sense. And by publicizing the fact that you can get your doctor's license revoked for giving out politically disfavored information, you're only establishing that no one on either side can believe anything the doctor says.
