Facebook Fact Checker That Issues Warning About Misinformation Reportedly Worked At Wuhan Lab

Facebook is now issuing warnings to anyone who accesses an article that their “fact checkers” have claimed contains misinformation. Before visiting the site users will see a warning label from Facebook about the site or the source if the fact checkers claim that the information isn’t correct. However, it turns out that one of the fact checkers worked at the Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China.

Summit News did a report on Facebook’s new initiative promoting a site called “Get The Facts”, which is backed by the World Health Organization, yes the same organization that lied back in mid January claiming that the coronavirus could not be spread via human-to-human transmission.

According to the Associated Press, the idea is to deter people from interacting with links deemed misinformation by Facebook’s fact checkers…

“The new notice will be sent to users who have clicked on, reacted to, or commented on posts featuring harmful or false claims about COVID-19 after they have been removed by moderators. The alert, which will start appearing on Facebook in the coming weeks, will direct users to a site where the World Health Organization lists and debunks virus myths and rumors.”

The real issue comes in with who is determining what is “myths and rumors”.

Zero Hedge did some due diligence and discovered that Danielle Anderson from Duke University’s NUS Medical School in Singapore contributes to

Science Feedback is what Facebook references as a fact check site when they claim a link you’re clicking on is “myths” or a “rumor”.


As pointed out by Reclaim The Net, there is no disclosure in the notices from Facebook that one of the people responsible for fact checking the content they issue warnings over worked at the lab in Wuhan, China.

Simply put, one of the people who worked at the lab at the center of the coronavirus pandemic that was covered up by the World Health Organization with literal disinformation is also being used as a source to classify other news sites as “fake news” or “false information”.

It’s like criminals running the prison.

It’s why a lot of normal people have been happy about President Donald Trump halting funds to the World Health Organization. As pointed out by Sargon of Akkad, China lied and people died.
