Outline

Circulating report claims that the US government has hatched a nefarious scheme to secretly implant RFID chips in citizens by hiding the chips in Ebola vaccinations.

Brief Analysis

The claims are nonsense. The report is a work of fiction disguised as news and published by the fake-news website National Report. The fake report builds on long running conspiracy theories that falsely claim that various governments are set to introduce mandatory microchipping of citizens. National Report considers itself satirical and nothing published on the site should be taken seriously.

Example

CDC Whistleblower Exposes Ebola Vaccinations Containing RFID Chips

A CDC whistleblower has recently gone on record to expose nefarious government plans which would use the impending US Ebola pandemic as an opportunity to implant RFID technology in American citizens.

Detailed Analysis

Story Claims RFID Chips Will Be Hidden in Ebola Vaccinations

According to a story currently making its way around the Internet, a CDC whistleblower has revealed secret government plans to implant RFID tracking chips in American citizens.

The report claims that the chips will be hidden inside disposable syringes that will be used to vaccinate citizens against the deadly Ebola virus. Supposedly, 200,000 of the chip-laden Ebola syringes will be issued to households by December 1st and citizens will also be able to get the vaccine from local drug stores.

Thus, suggests the story, a great many US citizens will be implanted with the hidden RFID chips, thereby allowing the government to identify, separate and control its people from afar.

Story is Nonsense - Comes Via Fake-News Site National Report

But, just like the seemingly endless series of similar conspiracy theory rumours that have gone before, the claims in the story are utter nonsense. No such CDC wistleblower has come forward, nor are there any credible reports that support the claims in any way.

The story is a work of fiction published by the fake-news website National Report. The site, which apparently considers itself satirical, presents its fictional material as seemingly legitimate news reports. And, it does not display any clear disclaimer that alerts its readers that stories on the site are fiction.

Thus, many people tend to mistake National Report stories as real news and are apt to share them with their friends via social media. Unfortunately, many of the site's fake stories go viral, spreading misinformation and raising angst and fear as they travel.

In fact, an earlier viral report from the same website falsely claimed that one in three Americans had already been secretly implanted with RFID chips during dental work.

Beware Fake-News Sites and Stories

National Report and similar fake-news sites now churn out an endless stream of nonsensical articles disguised as news. While good satire is both amusing and important, most of the material published by these pseudo-satire websites is not deserving of a satire tag.

It is thus important to verify any news stories that come your way before you share them. Searching an online news portal will usually reveal if a circulating report is true.
