How the Fake Covid Fact Checker Reuters Does Not Disclose Pfizer Financial Connections

Last Updated on August 17, 2022 by Shaun Snapp

Executive Summary

  • Reuters performs fact-checking that supports companies that are financially connected to Reuters.


Reuters performs supposed fact-checking of stories on covid, which always supports the narrative supported by the medical establishment and the pharmaceutical companies. What Reuters fails to disclose is their financial connections to Pfizer.

About Reuters

Reuters has consistently provided false information, lied about covid, and used the term “fact-checking” to mean defending the pharmaceutical company story on covid.

About The Covid PCR Test

Before we address the false Reuters fact check on the covid PCR test, let us review the topic of the covid PCR test.

This test requires an amplification algorithm before determining either true or false. Then there is a question of how many times you run the algorithm.

Now observe this quotation on the amplification cycles.

20 cycle threshold, 60% chance genetic material is viral and can be cultured. 30 cycles, 40% chance. 35, 3% chance. Past 35 is not even worthy. This viral genetic material, of course, is subject to the specificity. – Comment on John’s Hopkins Retractions

The FDA approved the PCR test being run between 35 and 40 cycles. It appears as if the FDA desired false positives.

Let us now jump out to a fact-check article by Reuters.

Reuters Fake Fact Check #1

The text in the posts read: “Just a daily reminder: There is still no accurate test to detect C19; therefore, there is no accurate test to detect the “delta” or any variant. The only thing they are testing is your willingness to comply.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says on its website (here) that nucleic acid amplification tests (NAAT) are still considered the “gold standard” in diagnosing SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the novel coronavirus (here)

False. RT-PCR tests are considered the gold standard in detecting the COVID-19 virus and the Delta variant is determined through genome sequencing. – Reuters

One thing is that the WHO disavowed the PCR test in Jan of 2021. The Reuters fact check was written in October of 2021. On December 31 of 2021, the CDC PCR test lost its authorization to be used. So it seems it was not enough of a “gold standard” to continue to be used. PCR tests are not supposed to determine if one has an infection as they are too sensitive.

Why is this information not included in the fact check?

Secondly, Reuters leaves out that the CDC is massively financially conflicted due to pharmaceutical ties, as is Reuters, which Reuters does not declare its pharmaceutical advertising revenue or its co-ownership with Pfizer this fact check. I will provide information on this topic in a moment.

So Reuters leaves out at least three critical pieces of information that would question their objectivity.

Reuters then declares this claim that there are no accurate tests for covid as false. However, they do so by lying and using an organization called the CDC that has continually provided incorrect information about covid and sending instructions to hospitals to exaggerate death certificates. Reuters is a news service, they do not perform in-depth analysis, and I do not see why Reuters can fact-check any complex topic.

Reuters Fake Fack Check #2

In the clip, Martin claims that the vaccine is not actually a vaccine, but a “medical device” that makes people sick.

“This is not a vaccine. This is a mRNA packaged in a fat envelope that is delivered to a cell. It is a medical device designed to stimulate the human cell into becoming a pathogen creator” (timecode – 00:19), Martin says.

“You are getting injected with a chemical substance to induce illness, not to induce an immuno-transmissive response, in other words nothing about this is going to stop you from transmitting anything. This is about getting you sick and having your own cells be the thing that gets you sick” (timecode – 5:20). – Reuters

The evidence this is true is that the FDA has stated that the antibodies created by the vaccines cannot be said to be the same antibodies made in response to covid.

However, Reuters denies this fact as the quote continues.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines a vaccine as a product that stimulates the immune system into producing immunity to a disease, and protects the person from that disease (here).

This is how mRNA coronavirus vaccines work, but in a different way than has been seen before. – Reuters

There is a lot of disagreements on this point.

  • First, the mRNA vaccines do not stop transmission. That is a very odd vaccine that does not prevent transmission.
  • Secondly, the vaccines don’t do anything to reduce the impact of covid, as I illustrate in the article How Effective Are the Covid Vaccines?
  • Thirdly, the CDC changed the definition of a vaccine, as is explained in the following quotation.

Before the change, the definition for “vaccination” read, “the act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.” Now, the word “immunity” has been switched to “protection.” The term “vaccine” also got a makeover. The CDC’s definition changed from “a product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease” to the current “a preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases.” – Miami Herald

The CDC had to do this because the covid vaccines would not have met the definition of a vaccine.

This is also left out by Reuters.

Reuters very carefully crafts its fact-check articles so that they are one-sided cherry-picked affairs that serve to replicate whatever the establishment entities say is true.

The Reuters quote continues.

These vaccines have been found to prevent symptomatic and severe effects of COVID-19 (here).

Research is ongoing to determine whether the vaccines have an effect on transmission. – Reuters

This article was published in Feb 2021, and in Jan 2022, the information is in. The vaccines do nothing to stop transmission. That was a lie.

It seems that this fact check is false like most Reuters fact checks.

Dr. Robert Malone Exposes Reuters Financial Bias and Connections to Pfizer

Now that we have reviewed two fact checks from Reuters, let’s see a video that explains why Reuters has such an interest in providing pharmaceutical-friendly fake fact checks.

At the 1 hour and 13-minute mark, Dr. Malone explains that Reuters is highly connected to Pfizer through corporate relationships, and they are connected at the board level. They have common corporate ownership, And they are the official fact-checker of Twitter.

About YouTube

I originally had this video embedded from YouTube. However the day after I embedded it, YouTube pulled the video down. The message on the video stated that it violated a copyright, which is a fake charge that was used because Google simply did not want anyone to see this video. Twitter and Google and Facebook are united in keeping information from the public. Luckily, I was able to find the video on Odysee. When it comes to covid, YouTube constantly pulls down informative videos. 

This quote provides background on Dr. Malone.

Dr. Robert Malone is the inventor of the nine original mRNA vaccine patents, which were originally filed in 1989 (including both the idea of mRNA vaccines and the original proof of principle experiments) and RNA transfection. Dr. Malone, has close to 100 peer-reviewed publications which have been cited over 12,000 times. Since January 2020, Dr. Malone has been leading a large team focused on clinical research design, drug development, computer modeling and mechanisms of action of repurposed drugs for the treatment of COVID-19. Dr. Malone is the Medical Director of The Unity Project, a group of 300 organizations across the US standing against mandated COVID vaccines for children. – Evidence of Fear

And this is who both Twitter and Google do not think should have a platform to speak. 

Reuters does not declare any of these financial connections as they are tied at the board level when they write fake fact-checking articles supporting Pfizer lies. Dr. Malone claims that he wrote a tweet about the financial connections between Reuters and Pfizer was why Dr. Malone was banned from Twitter.

Fake Covid Fact-Checking is Rampant in the Establishment Media

Reuters is not alone. All of the establishment media entities that write articles on fact-checking covid support the establishment narrative, which is the narrative of pharmaceutical companies.

I cover how the CDC, FDA, and USA Today Misrepresented The Effectiveness of Covid PCR Tests, how USA Today served as a PR outlet for the CDC and provided false information about the PCR Test.

This is explained in the following quotation.

It should come as no surprise then that fact checking organizations are funded by Big Pharma and Big Pharma PR companies like the Publicis Groupe, which also happens to be a partner of both Google14,15 and the World Economic Forum (WEF).16

Many fact checking organizations also belong to the International Fact-Checking Network,19 which is financed by George Soros (through his Open Society Foundation and the National Endowment for Democracy), Google and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation20 — all of whom are part of the WEF’s technocratic cabal that is pushing for a Great Reset. – Mercola


Reuters is nothing more than a PR front end for Pfizer and the pharmaceutical industry that will do what they are told and defend the companies they are financially connected to. Reuters will continue to hide these financial biases because it improves its ability to distribute Pfizer PR. And Google and Twitter will censor anyone who points out that Reuters has this financial entanglement.

It would be more honest if Pfizer published the fact checks rather than having a media entity that is pretending to be independent do them. This complete lack of disclosure is now the norm in the establishment media.
