JW: The public university that recently got more than half a million dollars from the U.S. government to combat science misinformation in black communities is also receiving a chunk of change from American taxpayers to develop a “precision tool providing journalists with guidance against misinformation.” The fact-checking engine is called Course Correct and the academics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who are creating it assert it will help journalists identify trending misinformation on social media, strategically correct false claims, and test the effectiveness of corrections in real time.
We don't have a misinformation problem.
We have a problem with those that decide what misinformation is.

In two separate grants the National Science Foundation (NSF) is awarding the University of Wisconsin-Madison north of $5.7 million to develop Course Correct. The grant announcement states, “Skepticism regarding the integrity of U.S. elections and hesitancy related to COVID-19 vaccines are two consequences of decline in confidence in basic political processes and core medical institutions. Social media serve[s] as a major source of delegitimizing information about elections and vaccines, with networks of users actively sowing doubts about election integrity and vaccine efficacy, fueling the spread of misinformation.”

In short, the project is motivated by a desire to understand and help address what the Biden administration calls “two democratic and public health crises facing the U.S.” They are described as skepticism regarding the integrity of U.S. elections and hesitancy related to COVID-19 vaccines. “Both of these crises are fueled by online misinformation,” the NSF writes in the grant document.

The bigger chunk of money – up to $5 million – will pay for professors to test and refine the new, publicly funded Course Correct, which is being promoted as a Precision Guidance Against Misinformation. Read the rest – Judicial Watch.
Notably, the “crises” the Biden administration seems the most worried about, also happen to be key issues with the GOP and most sensical voters, who base their votes on facts and real science – not emotion and “social justice”, which is why so much money is being funneled into convincing voters to the contrary of whatever the Democratic opposition says.
Do your own research. Do not trust any institution, especially those funded by our corrupt government, to give you any facts, much less the truth. The hunger for truth cannot be foisted upon someone, but do not wait until it is you who is being adversely affected by a rigged system run amok, to begin caring about what is true.
