Ref  in Mike's story, an incisive roundup by Professor Risch (Harvard) of the evidence on HCQ at the time and (importantly) of the commentary, is here: https://academic.oup.com/aje/article/doi/10.1093/aje/kwaa093/5847586.
To me this professor gave a very authoritative view of the issues that are being spun.
The link gives the abstract (short summary) of the article, which I've posted about a few times on the board having seen it on a video posted by Rhisiart. Really the whole thing is worth a read.
I picked out some highlights here

But Woodward gives an up to date picture, including some of the cracks that have now appeared in that Remdesivir picture, and how Fauci (along with the WHO) have managed to shut down (many) HCQ trials worldwide. This was despite the retraction of the apparently made-up Lancet paper.
HCQ is not so much a rival to Remdesivir (which is for hospital patients), it needs to be shown to fail for Remdesivir to succeed - because the HCQ+Azithromycin/Zinc combos threaten to keep patients out of hospital in the first place.
