Interestingly, vaccines are also said to be involved in the bias of fact checkers today. According to Instagram user @TheFreeThoughtProject
FactCheck.org is funded by a foundation that holds over $1.8 billion of stock in "a vaccine company". Which would that be?
Annenberg Foundation: $282,930
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: $53,501
And even more than RWJF from Facebook, the spook organization itself!

The foundation also founded the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, which publishes a large election survey as well as policy research and papers. The Public Policy Center is best known as the publisher of FactCheck.org, a well-known and sometimes-criticized fact-checking website.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (sometimes credited by the uninformed as a "third party" implying it's unbiased) is run by Richard E. Besser, the former director of the CDC and ABC news "health" specialist. Nearly 15% of the foundation's assets are in Johnson & Johnson, a vaccine manufacturer. (That's because Robert Wood Johnson, James Wood Johnson and Edward Mead Johnson founded Johnson & Johnson! https://pharmaphorum.com/views-analysis ... n-johnson/
From their own site on the Conflict of Interest subject:
https://www.rwjf.org/en/about-rwjf/our- ... ement.html
Robert Wood Johnson II established this Foundation exclusively to advance charitable purposes for the public good. The Board of Trustees honors General Johnson’s values by setting the highest ethical standards for the Foundation’s Trustees, non-Trustee advisors to the Board and its committees, and staff. We do this in many ways, including by using the Foundation’s assets prudently and efficiently, by taking measures to assure that decisions are made with integrity and in compliance with law, and by adhering to our Guiding Principles and other policies, including this Conflict of Interest Policy.
They take "measures" to be lawful. Yet, all the COVID vaccines are inadequately researched and killing thousands of people in a matter of a few months. Fascinating stuff!
It's interesting how many that seemingly appreciate true corruption investigations are so silent on the subject when so-called "watchdog" organizations show blatant corruption. I'd be curious if anyone has done digging on SourceWatch.org as well. They used to be fairly reliable for finding corruption connections but they seem more hard pressed to go after only half the disturbing trends, because they act partisan while claiming to not do so.
Is there any non-partisan fact checking? Maybe only in truly independent unpaid research, I would say it seems. Maybe there is some truth to the concept that power, and privilege are almost entirely corruptive and corrosive to the operation of regulations. How do we get around this problem with massive unwieldy empires presumed to lead and manage huge population centers?
