California Passes Bill To Punish Doctors Who Spread COVID ‘Misinformation’
(Worthy News) – California passed a bill Monday to punish doctors accused of spreading COVID-19 “misinformation” and “disinformation.”
Doctors and other medical professionals accused of spreading “disinformation” and “misinformation” can have their state license suspended or revoked by the Medical Board or Osteopathic Medical Board of California for “unprofessional conduct” under the bill, which passed by the state senate Monday evening. If signed into law by Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, California will become the first state to take legal action against medical professionals for expressing COVID-related speech deemed as false information, according to The New York Times.
The bill defines misinformation as “false information that is contradicted by contemporary scientific consensus contrary to the standard of care.” Disinformation is “misinformation that the licensee deliberately disseminated with malicious intent or an intent to mislead,” it states.
