What Vancouver Times claimed
The article reported:
Rady Johnson, the executive Vice President of Pfizer, has been arrested at his home and charged with multiple counts of fraud by federal agents. He was taken into custody and is awaiting a bail hearing. This comes as 1,000s of classified documents from Pfizer were released, showing the true risks of the experimental vaccine.
As a result of Rady’s arrest, the hashtag #pfizerdocuments has started trending on Twitter. Multiple celebrities are now calling for other employees at Pfizer to be arrested. Twitter has begun the process of censoring the hashtag, and this publication. Other social media platforms have followed suit.
Since joining Pfizer in 1994, Rady held multiple high level positions in the company. Rady previously lead the Regulatory Law practice group as well as the Corporate Regulatory and Healthcare Law Audit functions. Despite Rady’s high-level position at Pfizer, his ethics have fallen into question.
Keean Bexte, an independent journalist formerly employed by Rebel News, pointed out how 1,223 people died within the first 28 days after taking the Pfizer jab. There are reports that the vaccine killed all the animals during the trial. Many people are angry the vaccine was allowed onto the market despite all the risks.
A judge has granted a media blackout on request of Rady’s lawyers, and Google is suppressing search results. Fact-checkers and Big Tech censors are working overtime to censor this article. Rady faces life in prison if convicted.
As soon as the link of the article opens, one can find that the article has been tagged as satire.
Meanwhile, Vancouver Times states on its website that “we write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.”
The website’s “About Us” section vancouvertimes.org/about-us/ also details how the site is focused on satirical articles. It reads: “Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast.
A version of the claim from the website Best News Here received more than 200 shares in two days.
The reports used the same “media blackout” claim. But no judge can order a media blackout of an arrest, even if it’s of a celebrity or a notable person like the Executive Vice President of Pfizer.
What Pfizer responds to the news
Pfizer has said the claim is untrue, and no reputable news outlets have reported that Johnson was arrested.
A Pfizer spokesperson told Reuters that claims of Johnson’s arrest are “false”.
“Rady Johnson has not been arrested,” the Pfizer spokesperson said.
