How is Richard Epstein still able to publish articles that aren't laughed into oblivion?

Below is a very interesting look back at the entire saga of NYU/Hoover Institute’s Richard Epstein weighing in on COVID19.

What is worse than his original horrendous writing is the fact that he and/or others at Hoover have tried diligently to hide just how pathetically bad his own original model was.

I also include for your reading pleasure the brilliant takedown of Richard Epstein by New Yorker reporter Isaac Chotiner

As well as the now HIGHLY edited Hoover article by Epstein

2. Yes. It is brilliant how dumb this guy is and he could tell part way through

The interview he was coming off as a clueless moron so then he doubled down in trying to defend what a smart guy he is and came off looking even more ridiculous.

Even with all that, the Hoover Institute published a follow up article from Epstein where he tried to argue that since the lockdowns are working we need to end the lockdowns.
