Facebook vaccine fact-checkers funded by…vaccine company stock holder!

Congressman Thomas Massie has EXPOSED one of Facebook’s prominent jab info checkers is in fact partly funded by a group that holds $1.8BN of stock in… vaccine manufacturer Johnson&Johnson!

FactCheck.org, run by former Obama-era CDC director Richard Besser, received $53,501 from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation – specifically for the “COVID-19/Vaccination Project”, targeting covid misconceptions.

The fact checkers note, however, that “the [Robert Wood Johnson] foundation has no control over our editorial decisions, and the views expressed in our articles do not necessarily reflect the views of the foundation”

FactCheck.org has a history with Congressman Massie – it had previously played down Massie’s allegation that the CDC “falsely claimed a Pfizer study proved the vaccine was highly effective” for people with previous infections – despite the CDC later correcting their own report.
