NewsPunch #conspiracy #sexist

[AP News article. Title: "Fabricated WEF story published by site known for false news". I wasn't sure if #sexist was the right tag but the intent is also to trivialize human rights by presenting activists as crackpots.]

The claims came from a website called News Punch, which has published numerous stories based on conspiracy theories and has promoted fabricated information and quotes in the past.

The article was published Tuesday with the headline: “World Economic Forum Declares Pedophiles ‘Will Save Humanity.’” One Twitter user who shared the story on Wednesday received more than 10,000 retweets and 15,000 likes on the post, which was also viewed more than 450,000 times.
The article claimed — without citing any evidence or sources — that WEF Chairman Klaus Schwab called pedophilia “nature’s gift” to humanity. It also falsely stated that a research paper presented at the forum in Davos, Switzerland, described pedophilia as “nature’s attempt to cleanse the earth and ‘save humanity’ from itself.”

Yann Zopf, head of media for the WEF, said the assertions are entirely fabricated.
