(Natural News) Journalist and political commentator Kim Iversen denounced the mainstream media (MSM) and its so-called “fact checkers” for concealing how manufacturers of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine skipped animal trials before approving the shots.
“Oftentimes, these fact checks … [from] organizations like Reuters and Associated Press (AP) end up not being exactly factual on their own,” she said on her program “The Kim Iversen Show.”
Iversen played a video of a May 2021 hearing at the Texas State Senate in the state capitol Austin, where Dr. Angelina Farella of America’s Frontline Doctors testified before Republican State Sen. Bob Hall on the matter of vaccine safety.
“Hall says that animal trials were skipped due to the animals dying, and Farella says she agrees,” Iversen stated. According to the journalist, Hall admitted that animal trials were not completed before the shots were initiated for human trials “due to time constraints and the urgency to find a vaccine?for COVID-19.”
However, a fact-check piece by Reuters deemed the May 2021 footage as “fake news.” Fact-checkers for the MSM outlet claimed they found no evidence of animal trials for the COVID-19 vaccines approved in the U.S. – Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Janssen – being skipped due to the subjects dying.
A spokesperson for the New York-based Pfizer reiterated to Reuters in an email that the claims of animal trials being skipped were false, citing a September 2020 press release. The press release stated that the two-dose mRNA vaccine by Pfizer “demonstrated protective anti-viral effects” in both rhesus macaques and mice. Moderna and Johnson & Johnson, the latter manufacturing the single-dose Janssen COVID-19 shot, also denied the accusations.

Another fact-check piece from AP justified why the vaccine makers were allowed to run human trials at the same time as animal trials. It stated that both Pfizer and Moderna were given approval to simultaneously test their vaccines on animals while they were conducting Phase 1 trials on humans “due to the urgent need for a vaccine in a surging pandemic.”
Iversen: Fact-check pieces utilized to push vested interests
A third fact-check article, this time from the British “independent” organization Full Fact, claimed that animal trials were done concurrently with human trials because data already existed that showed the vaccines were safe.
Chris Magee, head of policy and media at the British nonprofit Understanding Animal Research, explained to the Full Fact team that in the case of COVID-19 vaccines that “data already existed to indicate the vaccines were safe, which enabled researchers to run animal trials alongside the early stages of human trials.”
Iversen, however, pointed out that this data pertained to earlier animal studies on potential vaccines using mRNA technology.
“Why did those other vaccines that they were testing with mRNAs not come to market? Maybe they tested the actual technology mRNA but when you mix mRNA technology with a certain virus or another virus, you might get totally different results.”
She added that animal trials for the COVID-19 shot done concurrently with human trials “doesn’t make anybody who has that feeling feel any better.”
The host of “The Kim Iversen Show” also zeroed in on Full Fact’s report that the animals were euthanized seven days after being injected with the vaccine. This practice, the group claimed, is “standard procedure in this sort of trial.”
“We now don’t know the long-term side effects in an animal because you euthanized them in seven days,” she commented.
