Thompson Reuters Foundation Chairman is also board member at Pfizer



Reuters Foundation Chairman is also board member at Pfizer

“Jim Smith, the Former President and CEO of Thomson Reuters and now the current Chairman of the Thomson Reuters Foundation, the corporate arm of the company, also sits as a board member at Pfizer – except under the name James Smith. Robert Malone, the self proclaimed creator of mRNA vaccines was the first to post Mr. Smith’s LinkedIn profile that showed the connections. The LinkedIn profile that Mr. Malone posted reads that “Jim is a non-executive director of Pfizer Inc.”

Since that tweet, it appears that Mr. Smith has removed his picture off of his LinkedIn profile in an attempt to make the connection harder to make. However, the pictures are the same person and the “James Smith” that sits on the board at Pfizer admits to being the Chairman of Thomson Reuters foundation and the former president – verifying it is in fact the same Mr. Smith. Mr. Smith is also a “member of the International Business Council of the World Economic Forum.”

People all over the world are hungry for unbiased information that they can trust. When the chairman of a media company like Reuters also sits on the board at Pfizer how can we believe that there isn’t any form of bias occurring in their coverage of the vaccine rollout? Are we to really believe that there is no conflict here? Do people really believe someone can sit on the board of a major vaccine manufacturer and still provide unbiased coverage of that same vaccine? I don’t think you can remain unbiased – but that’s just my take.”
