I’ve Decided to Start Pointing Out How Idiotic, Lazy, Redundant and Uncreative Reuters Fact Checks Are

I came across this gem today. I’m thinking this is more evidence that COVID 19 is an IQ test because this is yet another example of a test of critical thinking ability.

And they’ve set the bar very low.

“Fact check: A newspaper front page featuring a Bill Gates quote and a teaser for a piece about 9/11 is not proof the COVID-19 pandemic was planned.”

This popped up in my google search results when I was looking for a copy of the article in question (to see if it was real because lol). Instead, the top post in a search, aided by Gates’ evil offspring Google, was a Reuters “Fact Check.”

I’ve read some of their fact checks before. I actually had to buy a new keyboard after too many incidents of spitting hot coffee laughing my ass off at their 3rd-grade tactics.

Reuters uses the same weak tactic in this as it does in any other fact check. They disprove an obviously quacky social media post about the quote, as if it negates the fact that the quote actually exists.

But the quote DOES exist. Wanna know what quote they’re talking about?

“The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps, 10 or 15 percent.”

He says it here at 4:21, and no, no one is taking it out of context: https://www.ted.com/talks/bill_gates_innovating_to_zero/transcript?language=en

The Reuters article then veers off to display an immensely insane sounding conspiracy in an article about Gates’ quote, saying the vaccine was announced by Gates on 11/9, just the opposite of 9/11. So it’s a false flag! Oh Gasp!!

Honestly, I don’t know where or how they find these gems and leave them laying around the internet like little cat turns just waiting to get squished by your bare or freshly stockinged feet, but they’re literally EVERYWHERE, and they all have the same MO. Reuters doesn’t deny they disputed fact,

WHICH IN THIS CASE IS THAT BILL GATES LITERALLY SAID IN A QUOTE THAT HE PLANNED TO LOWER THE WORLD’S POPULATION WITH VACCINES

and instead, highlights an insane conspiracy post about Gates’ statement, and disproves that, as if it negates the fact that Gates said what he said.

In other words, they really do think we’re that dumb. Or maybe they’re just that dumb,

and lazy too.

Reuters Fact Checker, hard at work.

Matt Gaetz Based

I’m pretty sure that Gaetz said this over a year BEFORE Congress sent out a mere $600 stimulus while giving the rest of the world 7 times that in OUR tax money for items like gender studies in Pakistan; but his point is more salient than ever and the video is funny as hell. Now Mitch McConnell is holding up any additional stimulus by demanding that Congress repeal Sec. 230, which would actually attempt to reduce our freedom of speech on the internet even more than the currently passed bills already have.

You can’t make this shit up.
