U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie pointed out that a link between FactCheck.org’s program and the CDC’s ties to vaccine companies raises further questions.
A U.S. congressman has highlighted the fact that a Facebook-partnered website’s COVID-19/Vaccination “fact-checking” project is funded by a group that holds $1.9 billion in Johnson & Johnson stock and is headed by the former director of the Centers for Disease Control. U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky tweeted Saturday, “NOTHING TO SEE HERE … Former director of CDC is now CEO of the foundation that funds FACTCHECK.org’s vaccine fact checking program. Roughly 15% of said foundation’s assets are J&J stock.” “Bless your heart if you think factcheck.org is an unbiased source of vaccine information,” he continued.
