Was Pfizer Executive Vice President Rady Johnson just arrested for concealing damaging data on their COVID-19 vaccine?!
Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Pfizer Vice President Arrested For Vaccine Scandal!
Pro-CCP netizens and groups are claiming that Pfizer Executive Vice President Rady Johnson was just arrested for concealing damaging data for their COVID-19 vaccine.
Here are two examples that were shared on WhatsApp.
Truth : Pfizer Vice President Was NOT Arrested For Vaccine Scandal!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS being propagated by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Rady Johnson Was Not Arrested
Let me be clear – Pfizer Executive Vice President Rady Johnson was not arrested, period.
His arrest would have been worldwide news, especially if it’s related to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Pfizer is also a public-listed company on the New York Stock Exchange, and they are required to announce his arrest publicly, and to investors.
Yet, not a single press outlet published this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…
Remember the fake story of how Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla was arrested by the FBI for fraud? Or how the NYSE delisted Pfizer??
Fact #2 : Vancouver Times Is Known For Creating Fake News
These fake stories circulated by the wumao are based on a Vancouver Times story, and both versions included a link to that article (which I removed).
Vancouver Times is a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.
To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news masked as satire.
They revealed their true nature in their About Us section, hidden at the very bottom of the page, after a long list of comments.
Earlier, they also created and propagated the fake story that Gilbert Gottfried’s wife said that he was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine. That’s nonsense, of course.
Fact #3 : Pfizer Did Not Conceal Data
The fake news builds upon the longstanding fake news that the Pfizer fought to conceal data from their COVID-19 vaccine trial.
The truth is – Pfizer submitted those documents at the end of 2020, to health authorities across the world like the US FDA, the European Medicines Agency, the Australian TGA, etc. for their approval.
Their Phase 3 results were also confirmed by ongoing pharmacovigilance data collected by each country’s health authority – their COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective.
In fact, the Pfizer trial data are being progressively released by the US FDA, despite the PHMPT’s false claim that they were trying to hide them for 75 years.
Fact #4 : Pfizer Documents Did Not Reveal Any Wrongdoing
The fake news builds upon the longstanding fake news that the Pfizer documents revealed damning evidence of wrongdoing.
- A Texas judge forced Pfizer to release 9 pages of vaccine side effects : False
- The Pfizer vaccine documents revealed 1,291 side effects : False
- Pfizer tried to hide documents showing 158,000 vaccine adverse effects : False
The truth is – the released Pfizer documents did NOT show any evidence of fraud or deception in the COVID-19 vaccine trials.
Hence, it is absurd for any Pfizer executive to be arrested for vaccine fraud. There is simply no evidence of any COVID-19 vaccine scandal.
Why Would Wumao Lie About Pfizer VP Getting Arrested?
This fake scandal appears to be part of the disinformation campaign conducted by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) and/or pro-CCP netizens.
The wumao have been actively targeting Western COVID-19 vaccines, particular the Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA vaccine, since it was approved in December 2020.
Their disinformation campaign appears to be focused at maligning Western vaccines in favour of Chinese vaccines from Sinovac and Sinopharm, which have a hard time competing against far more efficacious vaccines from Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, etc.
Fake news like this have helped promote the idea that Chinese vaccines are better, despite evidence to the contrary.
