HYPOCRISY: Veritas Video Shows Zuckerberg Speculation on COVID Vaccines Facebook Won’t Allow

February 17th, 2021 4:43 PM

Project Veritas showed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg worried about the “long-term side effects” of COVID-19 vaccinations. Those same comments wouldn’t be allowed on his own platform.

It’s even unclear whether Facebook will censor this story about his concerns.

Guerrilla journalism group Project Veritas shared leaked footage of Zuckerberg voicing skepticism about mRNA COVID-19 vaccinations during a July 2020 talk. Project Veritas summarized that “[Zuckerberg] was worried about the impact a COVID-19 vaccine would have on an individual’s DNA and RNA.” Zuckerberg’s precise statement expressed extreme caution about the developing treatment to solve the COVID-19 pandemic:

“But I do just want to make sure that I share some caution on this [mRNA vaccine] because we just don't know the long-term side effects of basically modifying people's DNA and RNA … basically the ability to produce those antibodies and whether that causes other mutations or other risks downstream.”

Project Veritas alluded to an announcement Facebook made earlier on Feb. 8 that the platform was “Expanding our efforts to remove false claims on Facebook and Instagram about COVID-19 and vaccines.” One key detail Project Veritas illuminated was that “In this new policy, Facebook specifically stated that any claims that the vaccine changes an individual’s DNA would be removed.”

Project Veritas also shared footage and a brief transcript of Zuckerberg speaking on a Nov. 30 livestream with National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director Doctor Anthony Fauci. In the public discussion with Fauci, Zuckerberg made statements that were the complete opposite of what he was caught saying in private back in July:

“Mark Zuckerberg: ‘Just to clear up one point, my understanding is that these vaccines do not modify your DNA or RNA. So that’s just an important point to clarify, if I’m getting anything wrong here of course correct me, but just to make that clear…’”
