(PatrioticPost.Com)- Reports claim that a “fact-checker” used and trusted by social media giant Facebook worked at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the bio laboratory located near the Wuhan wet market where the COVID-19 virus originated.
Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson reported on Thursday that Danielle E. Anderson, an assistant professor at Duke-NUS Medical School, was used by the Facebook team to fact check a video published by media outlet the Epoch Times which suggested the Wuhan lab could be the origin of the virus. The claim is considered a conspiracy by some, but that same week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared on Fox News explaining how he and his global counterparts believe there is merit to the claim and that an investigation is currently underway.
Anderson, who dismissed the claims made by the Epoch Times, worked at that very lab in Wuhan.
You cannot make it up.
The “fact checker” Facebook is using to censor a documentary discussing possibility that corinavirus came from Wuhan lab… is scientist who worked at Wuhan lab with Chinese communists.
Honestly, folks. pic.twitter.com/Tqk155S3DD

“You cannot make it up,” Attkisson wrote. “The ‘fact-checker’ Facebook is using to censor a documentary discussing possibility that coronavirus came from Wuhan lab…is scientist who worked at Wuhan lab with Chinese communists. Honestly, folks.”
Could Facebook be any more transparent on this? Or did they just, honestly, think this was a smart idea?
In her fact-checking of the Epoch Times claim, Anderson did disclose that she is a “scientist trained to work in high containment and have collaborative projects with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
Anderson’s reputation, and potentially even her safety, depend on her ability to defend the Chinese against these claims. The authoritarian, communist country uses extreme measures to silence whistleblowers, and has been known to do lock up journalists in China who attempted to report on the outbreak in December 2019.
The Epoch Times produced a documentary report explaining the nature of the work performed at the Wuhan laboratory, which you can watch in the above clip.
Until the United States completes its full investigation into the origins of the virus, which Mike Pompeo has confirmed, we can only speculate. The team at Facebook, however, think they know everything!
