Yesterday a fake article appeared claiming that a CDC whistleblower exposed plans for an Ebola vaccine containing RFID chips.
This hoodwink is the latest mockery from National Report to “troll” the unwary social media masses. The fraudulent article claims that an employee from the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had exposed plans by the government to release an Ebola vaccination which contained radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips. According to the spurious write-up, the ultimate goal of the project was the declaration of martial law. Short term goals included ostracizing those who refused to take the vaccination.
Again, this article is fiction.
Past RFID Hoaxes
This is not the first time that National Report has created false stories about RFID chips. In fact, they have been responsible for a succession of viral RFID hoaxes going back to 2012. These stories included outrageous claims such as children and Christians in Wyoming were being forced to be implanted with RFID chips as part of an Obamacare program, Pope Francis had indicated support for RFID implantation, and 1/3rd of Americans had already been “chipped”. The following links debunk at least seven RFID editorials released by National Reports. View here and here.
It appears that National Report is attempting to tap into the growing fringe element of conservative conspiracy sites, yet they should not be considered a reliable source of information by any means.
National Report is one of the more popular satirical news sites that have sprung up over the last two years. Many of their articles contain an arrogant breed of satire which sometimes causes readers to mistake them as authentic news. This is likely an intentional tactic with the ambition to spread viral articles through social media channels.
Previously, the National Report website contained a disclaimer which informed visitors that their content was satirical and fictional. However, this disclaimer has since been removed, or may be hidden somewhere on their legal page. The following is a quote from a disclaimer that used to be visibly present on the site:
“National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news. Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental…”
Now the only visible disclaimer warns that the site is not intended for minors.
A CDC whistleblower has not exposed a plot for an Ebola vaccine containing RFID chips. This is the latest of many bogus RFID articles emanating from National Report, a website which is well-known for publishing fictional news masked as satire.
