falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus

Sorry "MIT researchers", but you guys aren't going to be convincing anybody of your "safe and unsafe" places to avoid the Wuhan Flu anymore.

In law there's the principle of falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus: once you've caught a witness lying about one thing, they no longer can be trusted about other things. And with health experts suddenly saying that "systemic racism" (which hasn't been shown to exist) is more important than economic activity (which has been shown to exist) then the list of "this is okay, this isn't" is going to be met with scorn.

You could have avoided all this, but you didn't. You sided with the far-left wackos at Slate and now you'll have to pay the real-world price of irrelevancy. You brought this on yourselves, don't go whining to us about it.
