Can we get the fact checkers on this?

A pertinent point would be if factcheck.org tell fibs or not. Amirite? Cos the merkins that are providing fodder for the fact checkers are BIG fibbers.

Has anyone, ever, caught factcheck.org out making vaccine shit up ? If not, maybe they need to get this lady on the payroll.

I really don't see creating a two tiered society based on vaccination status as a solution to our vaccination rates.

Sure, there might be circumstances where that would make perfect sense, but in terms of access to leisure and recreation, generally employment ( there would be some obvious exceptions as we have now ) it really is an over reach by government.

There will be some that see it as a road map to the new normal and no doubt some who liken it to the tattooing of the jews.

Merkins who are in the latter camp, need only to come up with sensible alternatives to avoid its implementation.

As you wish. All I know is that every other time there's even a hint of a conflict of interest, however small, you never fail to point it out. Yet bought and paid for 'independent fact checkers' are a non issue.
Did you look into the claim ? Because I did.

The journalist said that factcheck.org was indirectly funded by the Robertwood Johnston Foundation who owns billions of shares in J & J. Well that's not what their financial statements say. Maybe @crocodile can tell us.

The Robertwood Johnston Foundation gives a f**k tonne of cash to all aspects of health research every year.


You can see here who they give what for.


They gave $99,870 to Factcheck Org


Anyway now that you have discovered this earth shattering news, what factchecked claims investigated by FCO are bogus ? You must have a huge list by now.

Also, who is World Mercury Project who bought the majority of antivax space on facebook last year ? Sounds like your philanthropic organisation is being factchecked by another philanthropic organisation. Who are the good guys ? Who are the bad guys ? Subjective amirite ?

They were started with a donation of shares from Johnson and Johnson and as of last year hold over US $2M in J&J stock.

They were started with a bequest of shares in J&J, made by the former chief executive of that firm.

The Foundation own $2bn of JJ stock, not $2m (the financial statements are denominated in thousands). Each year they spend about $730m on charitable programs and grants.

If only we knew a problem solving engineer who could fact check the fact checkers.
