Remember the absolutely critical Omnibus spending bill Congress muscled through at the end of last year? It was 4,000 pages that no one read that cost taxpayers $1.7 trillion.
In our Let's Cut Some Spending series, ForAmerica will chronicle parts of the 2021 and 2022 spending bills from a variety of sources that you probably don't know about - programs, grants, and spending of all kinds that should have never happened in the first place and many that are still happening.
Today's offering: $5.7 million for professors to combat 'misinformation!'
Hot Air's 'The College Fix' reports:
National Science Foundation funding, awarded through a pair of grants from 2021 and 2022, has amounted to more than $5.7 million... intended to aid reporters, public health organizations, election administration officials, and others to address so-called misinformation on topics such as U.S. elections and COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy.
Federally backed 'fact checkers' who get to decide what's true and not true for the rest of us. What could go wrong! Look at how well the federal government spread the 'truth' about Covid-19.
Who better to decide what is true information and what is not than "reporters, public health organizations, election administration officials." They have such a good track record!
All paid for with our tax dollars. Shame.
