PolitiFact Ignores Facts In Article Claiming 15-Year-Old Did Not Die After Receiving Pfizer Vaccine

PolitiFact botched an attempted fact check of a National File article reporting that a 15-year-old boy in Colorado reportedly died of a heart attack only two days after receiving the controversial Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine despite having no previous medical conditions or medical history of severe allergic reactions.

In its fact check, in which PolitiFact writer Tom Kertscher misspells the name of Colorado Department of Public Health Director of Communications Jessica Bralish, PolitiFact acknowledges “Jesscia [sic] Bralish, spokesperson for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, said the CDC ‘has confirmed that they are investigating this report,’ but that she couldn’t provide more information.” This, combined with the fact that the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System is hosted by the CDC but open to the public, suggests to PolitiFact that the death did not occur. PolitiFact then brazenly disregards facts presented by the official Colorado COVID-19 resource website by declaring that, “The CDC said in a statement that there are no circumstances under which a 15-year-old would have been eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine.”

On the official Colorado COVID-19 resource website, in its frequently asked questions category, the state acknowledges that none of the controversial COVID-19 vaccines are currently available to teenagers younger than 16. However, the website also acknowledges that, “children as young as 12 years old have been enrolled in vaccine studies.” National File asked PolitiFact whether they knew this before publishing their article and did not receive a response.

In fact, the same Colorado media outlet quoted by PolitiFact – Fox 31 – acknowledges that the Pfizer vaccine is being tested on children and teens aged between 12 and 15, and quotes a Colorado doctor who claims the efficacy of the vaccine in this age group represents a “game changer.” Fox 31 quotes “Dr. Reginald Washington, the chief medical officer at the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children in Denver” as saying “I think it’s welcome news,” and ” none of the vaccinated children came down with COVID, and the immune response was very robust, meaning they had a very high number of antibodies.” National File asked PolitiFact if they were aware of this before publishing their fact check and did not receive a response.

Facebook’s ‘independent’ fact checker on vaccines is funded by … you guessed it

Accurate information about the vaccines and other vital COVID-related topics hinges upon the ability to disseminate the facts on major social media platforms like Facebook. In turn, Facebook relies on FactCheck.org, among other shady organizations, to rule on what information is admissible. FactCheck.org is funded by a grant from an organization run by Obama’s former CDC director, whose assets contain Johnson & Johnson stock. In other words, the vaccine companies control the flow of information about vaccines. Welcome to the world of “independent fact checkers.”POLL: What scares you the most?

Over the past year, Facebook has censored nearly every one of my articles and commentaries questioning the science behind lockdowns or mask mandates. More recently, it has placed a blockade on any information raising questions about the vaccines. Facebook has also blocked people from sharing my articles promoting cheap, lifesaving drugs, such as ivermectin, or even studies showing how sufficient doses of vitamin D and zinc can prevent critical illness from SARS-CoV-2.

In each instance of censorship, Facebook has posted a notice misleading anyone who wishes to share the article into thinking that the particular points raised in the article were independently fact-checked and found to be false. First, it’s critical to note that almost no article Facebook employees censor is fact-checked by anyone; they merely rely on an initial fact-check of one person’s article critical of masks — just to give an example — and then trot out that same fact-check as an excuse for zapping any article questioning the wisdom of mask-wearing, even if the points raised in said article are completely different from the issues addressed in the first fact-check.

However, there is something much more insidious going on with the fact-checking industry. The inmates are running the asylum and the foxes are guarding the henhouse. When the vaccines began to be dispensed to the public in December, FactCheck.org started “SciCheck’s COVID-19/Vaccination Project” to specifically focus on the flow of information pertaining to the vaccines. The site has a disclaimer on the top of the website stating: “SciCheck’s COVID-19/Vaccination Project is made possible by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.”

Comically, the next sentence reads, “The views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views of the foundation.”

In fact, the views expressed almost assuredly do reflect the views of the foundation. FactCheck.org claims, “The goal is to increase exposure to accurate information about COVID-19 and vaccines, while decreasing the impact of misinformation.” Yet have you ever seen the organization offer balanced coverage or flag a single post on the other side of this debate as false, no matter how outlandish the claim might be, including articles advocating experimental emergency use authorization vaccines for little children?

Bill Gates and George Soros Team Up to Form Organization Tasked with Policing with “Disinformation”

The American ruling class never sleeps and now they’re propping up a new organization to fight so-called “misinformation” and “disinformation.”

Joseph Vasquez of NewsBusters reported that the Aspen Institute Commission on Information is being funded by the likes of billionaire oligarchs such as Bill Gates and George Soros to “fight ‘mis- and disinformation.’”

The Aspen Institute features Katie Couric, a seasoned corporate media mouthpiece, as its co-chair. Vasquez observed that “Couric recently suggested during a segment with HBO host Bill Maher that ‘we’ should ‘deprogram’ people within former President Donald Trump’s cult.’” 

In addition, the commission counts on Rashad Robinson, the CEO of Color of Change. Soros financially backs Color of Change, which has been one of the more prominent organizations to lead the push to defund police departments nationwide.

Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Chris Krebs is another co-chair of the Aspen Institute. For those with short term-memory, Krebs claimed that the 2020 election was “the most secure in history,” a comment which was met with criticism from a senior Department of Homeland Security official.

Facebook ‘corrects’ woman’s complaint vaccine ‘is killing me,’ then she dies

Facebook, which routinely adds its editorial comments to posts with which it disagrees, recently “fact-checked” a woman’s complaint about her reaction to a coronavirus vaccine.

Desiree Penrod, 25, said on Facebook after getting vaccinated in early March: “The vaccine is killing me today. My arm hurts, beyond exhausted, headache, stomach cramps and earaches.”

Penrod also posted: “Multiple people told me that I looked pale today. Yesterday, I was fine but today it’s taking its toll on me.”

Facebook, citing the World Health Organization, added a disclaimer to a post by Penrose, “COVID-19 vaccines go through many tests for safety and effectiveness before they’re approved.”

A week later, Penrod died. Her obituary said she “passed away unexpectedly.”

Facebook’s editorial comment citing the WHO provided a link to the international organization, whose investigation into the origin of COVID-19 has been criticized because of China’s control of it.

The Foundation Funding “Fact-Checkers” Who Defend the Chinese Communist Party Is Heavily Invested in China.

The Knight Foundation – a George Soros-linked, left-wing group purporting to tackle disinformation by funding anti-conservative media operations and “fact-checkers” – has investments in firms tied to the Russian government and Chinese Communist Party, The National Pulse can exclusively reveal.

The group’s most recent financial disclosures reveal over $17,000,000 invested in a Chinese Communist Party-linked investment fund and over $1,200,000 invested in Russia Partners – which boasts of its close connections to “government leaders in Russia.”

The unearthed financial ties come as the group continues to peddle conspiracy theories about Russian influence in the 2016 election and purports to “protect press freedom” while investing in countries whose journalism sectors are consistently ranked among the least free.
