Alex Berenson is an American author and former investigative journalist who is best known for his controversial views on the COVID-19 pandemic and its management. He was born on January 6, 1973, in New York City.
Berenson worked as a journalist for over a decade, covering topics such as the war on drugs, the pharmaceutical industry, and the CIA. He has written several books, including the John Wells series of spy novels, and “Tell Your Children: The Truth About Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence”, which argues that marijuana use can lead to psychosis and violence.
In 2020, Berenson became a vocal critic of the public health measures taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, arguing that they were causing more harm than good. He has been critical of lockdowns, mask mandates, and the use of vaccines, and has questioned the severity of the disease itself. His views have been widely criticized by public health officials and medical experts, and his claims have been fact-checked and debunked by multiple sources.
Berenson’s opinions on COVID-19 have been highly controversial, and he has been accused of spreading misinformation and conspiracy theories. He has become a prominent figure in the “anti-lockdown” movement, and his views have been embraced by some conservative politicians and media outlets.
