Facebook Coronavirus ‘Fact Checker’ Worked with Wuhan Virus Lab, by Allum Bokhari. No, not the Babylon Bee, but apparently fact.
Facebook is relying on a “fact checker” that uses “expert opinion” from a researcher who conducted projects with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the biolab next to the wet market in Wuhan where the Chinese virus originated.
An article from the “expert,” Danielle E. Anderson, an assistant professor at Duke-NUS medical school, was used by Facebook to fact-check a video from the Epoch Times suggesting the Institute, which is located at the original epicenter of the now-global pandemic, as one of the possible origin points.
This is not a fringe claim — CNN reports that the U.S. intelligence community is currently investigating the same laboratory as the possible source of the outbreak. The same thread of investigation that got ZeroHedge banned from Twitter in late January is now being looked at by the U.S. government and reported on by the mainstream media.
A Facebook fact checker who has ‘debunked’ articles suggesting that COVID-19 may have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) has a giant conflict of interest; she worked at the institute– which is now suspected of accidentally leaking the hyper-virulent virus which has killed over 130,000 people and cast the global economy into chaos.
Danielle Anderson, who works at Duke University’s NUS Medical School lab in Singapore, also contributes to Science Feedback — which Facebook has been using to slap “False Information” labels on articles claiming that COVID-19 may have originated at the Wuhan institute — where Anderson worked with bat coronavirus.
A quick search of Anderson’s publications reveals no fewer than nine collaborations with Dr. Peng Zhou — a Wuhan scientist experimenting on bat coronavirus (the mention of whom may result in a Twitter ban). …
Anderson further peddled the now-debunked wet-market theory in a paper she co-wrote in The Lancet …
Any suggestion to the contrary is now deemed ‘False Information’ by Facebook, thanks to the highly conflicted Danielle Anderson and crew over at Science Feedback.
Scientists wouldn’t lie to cover their asses would they? Oh sorry, my mistake just cost 150,000 lives and counting, and brought the world to a standstill? Epic.
What’s going to happen when the world finds out about the error in the climate models? It was made by a certain person. It also cost the world dearly, though in this case far more people are culpable because they didn’t do due diligence. No deaths though.
