I hadn’t read its smear when I emailed it.

I do indeed encourage my students to think for themselves, on the basis of historical and scientific evidence (in this case, on the effectiveness of face masks against transmission of respiratory viruses). But I’ve never compared Bush to Hitler. So while my teaching is, in fact, beyond reproach, your “journalism” is appalling. Saying that I’ve “been accused of” making that comparison, as if that charge were true, is nothing but defamatory propaganda.
