FactCheck.org’s COVID-19 Project is Funded by Foundation That Has 15 Percent of Its Assets in Johnson and Johnson

Sharing is Caring!

FactCheck.org project addressing common COVID-19 “misconceptions” owes its existence to a philanthropic organization that has around 15 percent of its assets tied up in Johnson & Johnson stock.

The top of the project homepage reads as follows: “SciCheck’s COVID-19/Vaccination Project is made possible by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views of the foundation.”

Interestingly enough, Rep. Thomas Massie (KY-04) has discovered that 15.9 percent of the foundation’s assets consist of Johnson & Johnson common stock. Out of $11.9 million in assets, nearly $1.9 million has been invested in J&J. The figures come from a 2019 financial statement:
