Behind the curtain of fact checking…

And the methods used to ‘fact check’ things, by Matt Taibbi.

The British Medical Journal Story That Exposed Politicized “Fact-Checking”

After going through both legal and peer review, but without contacting Ventavia — apparently, they feared an injunction — the BMJ published Thacker’s piece on November 2nd, 2021. The money passage read:

A regional director who was employed at the research organization Ventavia Research Group has told The BMJ that the company falsified data, unblinded patients, employed inadequately trained vaccinators, and was slow to follow up on adverse events reported in Pfizer’s pivotal phase III trial.

Beginning on November 10th, 2021, the editors began receiving complaints from readers, who said they were having difficulty sharing it. As editors Fiona Godlee and Kamran Abbassi later wrote in an open letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg:

And here is the full text of the letter from the BMJ editors to Zuckie…

Dear Mark Zuckerberg,

We are Fiona Godlee and Kamran Abbasi, editors of The BMJ, one of the world’s oldest and most influential general medical journals. We are writing to raise serious concerns about the “fact checking” being undertaken by third party providers on behalf of Facebook/Meta.

Full letter, HERE at BMJ.

Apparently Zuckie nor his company has bothered to answer the mail… What a surprise!

This is a good look at exactly how fact checkers work, obfuscation, misdirection, etc. even when the story IS true. And the famous ‘missing context’ statements… I’ve seen that on mine before. Missing context my ass!!!

Also, this is how you get ‘this’ response…

  1. Ah, rated mostly false even as its true in terms of the Biden Administration’s exact announced policy and intentions.


  2. Sounds like they are handing out “safe smoking kits”…..which contains a lot of things including a rubber “mouthpiece” to use with a glass crack pipe.

  3. Some wonder if some one is getting payoffs from the cartels with the border and drug parafinalia helping their endeavors!

  4. Not to brag, but back in the day, we used to be able to carve a pipe out of an apple. Good times.
