The James Clinic

Fact Check

Facebook fact-checks link to video and transcript of Dr. Robert Malone's plea to parents not to give their children a COVID-19 vaccine: The James Clinic posted a link to the Global Covid Summit website that included Dr. Robert Malone's plea to parents asking them not to let their children receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Malone was an early mRNA researcher who has been credited with inventing the mRNA vaccine technology. Facebook fact-checker Health Feedback deemed the post "incorrect." The fact-check claimed that several of the assertions and opinions of Dr. Malone were incorrect but provided no data studies to back up its counter opinions and counterarguments. Instead, the fact-checker relied on statements by various doctors it claims are authoritative. Another Facebook fact-checker, AFP took a similar approach. Neither fact-checker gave data-based responses to the root concerns Malone presented.
