Fact-Checking AP's Fact Check Clown Squad!
Somebody is pretending to be AP's "News Verification Desk" and the emails are hysterical
I just got this email tonight from the Associated Press:
We’re reaching out from The Associated Press' News Verification Desk regarding your tweet on Tuesday following Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamilton's recent cardiac arrest.
You tweeted: "Everybody knows what happened to Damar Hamlin because it's happened to too many athletes around the world since COVID vaccination was required in sports."
The post also shared a compilation video showing footage of, or headlines about, athletes collapsing on the field, suggesting the vaccines are to blame.
Numerous cardiologists we have consulted say there's no evidence to support that theory at this time. And several of the clips shown in the compilation video have since been proven to be unrelated to the vaccines.
Please let us know if you can provide any evidence for the claims made in the tweet, or if you have any further comment.
AP News Verification
The video compilation in question is here.
Here’s my reply to the pranksters pretending to be the “Associated Press' News Verification Desk” in full:
This is the best parody email that I’ve read in ages. Just the thought of the drunks, losers, frauds, and fools who’ve washed up at AP trying to start a News Verification Desk and then trying to “fact-check” the work of real journalists is pure comedy.
Sadly — as we both know — no such News Verification Desk actually exists at AP.
For example: the name of the Buffalo Bills player is Damar Hamlin not “Damar Hamilton” as you incorrectly spelled it — in the first sentence of your email.
And then your line about “numerous cardiologists we have consulted” who “say there's no evidence to support that theory.” Did you consult all those cardiologists today? Because my tweet was posted yesterday.
You obviously didn’t consult any cardiologists at all — because you didn’t even consult a team roster to spell the man’s name correctly.
As you probably know, world-famous doctors and scientists and researchers like Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Naomi Wolf, and Dr. Andrew Huff appear on my TV show regularly to explain the complete failure of the COVID vaccines and the dangers of mRNA shots — just in case you need to spoof the names of real doctors in the future.
By the way, the actual Associated Press just got busted for prostituting itself to climate change activists —and then hundreds of media outlets were caught taking advertising money from the Biden Administration’s HHS to “promote” the COVID vaccines — so you might want to use the name of a more trusted news source in your next spoof email. Was the actual AP taking money from Big Pharma companies like Pfizer or Moderna as well? I know a lot of journalists who think the answer to that key question is: yes.
But, amateur errors aside, I still loved this genuinely goofy and absurd parody — it really brightened my day with laughter.
Are more athletes suffering cardiac arrest since the introduction of COVID vaccines than before? The answer is: yes.
