Ever wonder who has been given the rights to fact-check your posts on social media?
Check out The Illustrated Primer’s expose of one of these fact checkers, Flora Teoh.
“Flora Teoh is a contributor to several ‘fact-checking’ organizations such as Maldita.es, International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), and the International Data Verification Network, which aims to promote ‘good’ journalistic practices by fighting the dissemination of what they term “fake-news”.
A snapshot of the life of Flora Teoh, a Chinese/Singaporean national who is the Science Editor of Science Feedback, a Facebook proxy organization designed to censor and block scientific free speech.
In November of 2018, Teoh joined Science Feedback. Her main assignments for 2020 have been to:
- Monitor and control political discourse related to science
- Gate keep and censor ‘conservative’ scientific content
- Promote media that is aligned with ‘progressive’ thought
So it turns out that the arbitrator of truth that controls our free speech in the US is a Chinese woman from Singapore who is living a life of luxury in Europe, all expenses paid by her wealthy family back in Asia.
Academically, she seems to be an under performer. Her grade history shows that she almost flunked a test (scored 60%) in “Monitoring of Clinical Trials by Industry Sponsors”, which ironically, is the basis of her proclaimed expertise for some of her critical fact checks.”
And she offers her services for just $30 an hours, what a deal!
