NOT REAL NEWS: A look at what didn’t happen this week


              FILE - In this Wednesday, May 19, 2021 file photo, downtown Washington and the Washington Monument are seen behind a sign adverting a free vaccine drive with Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations for members of the community 12 years and up outside a school in southeast Washington. On Friday, July 16, 2021, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting President Joe Biden’s administration introduced a door-to-door campaign to offer COVID-19 vaccines as a way to confiscate guns or Bibles. But the vaccine campaign does not involve federal workers, it relies on local officials, private sector workers and volunteers to go into areas where there are lower vaccination rates and provide information on where to access the vaccine.

On Friday, July 16, 2021, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting The Democratic National Committee is working with the Biden administration to monitor private citizens’ SMS communications in a move to crack down on anti-vaccine text messages. But Lucas Acosta, a senior spokesperson for the DNC, said it is simply notifying SMS aggregator companies, like Twilio and Bandwidth, when it believes a political mass text is fraudulent or violates the company’s messaging policies. “The only texts reviewed are those distributed en masse to American citizens through broadcast text platforms and reported to the DNC.” The White House declined to comment on the record.
