Politico releases correction after false claim Clarence Thomas over COVID vaccine

Politico issued a correction after mainstream media outlets were criticized over falsely connecting a theory about the COVID vaccine to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

The outlet had stated that Thomas suggests COVID vaccines are developed using the cells of aborted children, a view he noted concerning workers in a recent case but did not state that he held.

“On Friday, Politico issued a correction reading, ‘An earlier version of this report misattributed the claim that Covid-19 vaccines were ‘developed using cell lines derived from aborted children’ to Thomas. The headline and article have been updated to directly state that Thomas was referencing petitioners’ claims,'” Fox News noted.

“The headline was also changed to, ‘Clarence Thomas cites claim that Covid vaccines are “developed using cell lines derived from aborted children,”‘” it added.

The correction shows at least some accountability after spreading false information about Thomas.

The news may also lead to other outlets making a similar correction or being more careful with future Supreme Court reports.

I get paid more than $120 to $130 every hour for working on the web. I found out about this activity 3 months prior and subsequent to joining this I have earned effectively $15k from this without having internet working abilities
