TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): In other words, you're not allowed to criticize Pfizer, it's now a crime in California. Oh, shareholders of Pfizer, anyone? Probably. Dr. Marc Siegel is an actual doctor, joins us tonight to assess this. Dr. Siegel, thanks so much for coming on. So, when you graduated medical school, wasn't the presumption that you get to determine what the best practices in medicine are?

MARC SIEGEL (GUEST): Yes, not the governor of California, Tucker. Good evening. This is very dangerous, make no mistake about it. Using the word "misinformation" and deciding you know from the governor's pulpit -- or maybe the French Laundry restaurant -- you know what doctors should do is the latest egregious move and doctors need to revolt on this.

You know, first of all, the word "misinformation" -- Tucker -- is against science. Science is not about consensus. It's about challenging, it's about saying existing dogma doesn't work.
