Rumour, Gossip and Fake News Sites – Collection #7

Post by A440 » Tue Jan 11, 2022 1:30 pm

There is quite an infamous list of bad actors, as follows:

doctors4covidethics.org is a source of medical quackery and disinformation regarding COVID vaccines and is not a legitimate source of health information.

doctors4covidethics.org
Doctors for Covid Ethics is an advocacy group that states its mission as “we are demanding the immediate withdrawal of all experimental gene-based COVID-19 vaccines. We oppose vaccine passports, which threaten public health and violate Nuremberg and other protections. We are warning that ‘health passes’ place coercive pressure on citizens to submit to dangerous medical experimentation, in return for freedoms that once were human rights.”
however...
The mission statement above begins with two falsehoods; first, the vaccines are not experimental
See: https://www.reuters.com/article/factcheck-covid-vaccines-idUSL1N2M70MW.
Second, the vaccines do not violate the Nuremberg code as vaccine passports do not force people to get vaccinated.
See: www.mediabiasfactcheck.com/doctors-for-covid-ethics/
They also publish blog posts such as: On COVID vaccines: why they cannot work, and irrefutable evidence of their causative role in deaths after vaccination. This article is written by Dr. Bhakdi, who frequently publishes misinformation regarding vaccines. Finally, the website also publishes research and published work by member doctors. In general, they are a medical disinformation organization.
This site has compiled a series of failed fact-checks:
Wearing face masks can be harmful to your health, because they can increase the CO2 that you breathe. – False
VAERS, Yellow Card, and EudraVigilance data show that COVID-19 vaccines are killing people. – False
If Dante Alegheri was correct in his description of a hell, then this organization would be somewhere towards the bottom of such,

Subdomains include:
mail.doctors4covidethics.org
tube.doctors4covidethics.org
cloud.doctors4covidethics.org

Founded in 2001, GlobalResearch or Centre for Research on Globalization is a Canadian conspiracy website. It was founded by Michel Chossudovsky, who is currently the President of GlobalResearch and professor emeritus of economics at the University of Ottawa. The website does not have an about page, but they list the people involved with the operation. . .
GlobalResearch publishes a combination of real news and conspiracy theories. We will focus on the not-so-real news. GlobalResearch often reports unfavorably about Israel such as: The Zionist Idea Has Never Been More Terrifying than It Is Today.
This unlabeled opinion piece does not provide a single source of evidence for their claims. When it comes to politics, they are strongly anti-capitalist and anti-Globalist, as their name suggests. While GlobalResearch does promote legitimate humanitarian concerns, its views on science, economics, and geopolitics are questionable. For example, GR promotes anti-vaccination propaganda, 9-11 as a false flag operation, GMOs are harmful, and Chemtrails. There are so many more; this is just the tip of the iceberg.
This site also has a demonstrated anti-American theme as well as has a connection to Russian disinformation sources.

This site has failed quite a few fact checks:
“The most likely triggering cause of (microcephaly)” is the “DTaP shot, a vaccine that had been recently mandated by the Brazilian government to be injected into pregnant women.” – False
Are hospitals inflating the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths so they can be paid more? – False
“There are no reliable tests for a specific COVID-19 virus” – Inaccurate
“vaccines had cancer enzymes in them” – Inaccurate
All of the above sites are rated with WOT's generic (80) Okay rating, which is really misleading and incorrect.

Please feel free to rate these sites accordingly:
