Facebook’s fake fact checkers
Someone at @Facebook needs to explain why Peter Daszak, head of EcoHealth & the person with THE MOST glaring conflict of interest, was considered a source for fact-checking content on covid19 origins.
It's like asking Ayatollah Khamenei to fact-check content about Iran's nukes.

EcoHealth Alliance received money from many, including the U.S. government, and issued grants to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to study such things as “gain of function” virus research (making viruses more transmissible). Daszak orchestrated an article for The Lancet, last year, which said the lab leak hypothesis was basically impossible. More on the possibility of a cover up –here.
The media and social media took that as marching orders to ban any discussion of the lab leak hypothesis – anyone suggesting such, even highly qualified experts. had their content censored by the social media billionaires.
Now we learn that Facebook had Peter Daszak as a “fact checker” on this topic who shut down discussion on the lab leak hypothesis.
This points directly to the failure of allowing billionaires to control the public discourse and censor our speech.
