CBS Bothers to Follow Up on Charles Cooke's Reportage, and Finds That All of Rebekah Jones' Coworkers Say She Had No Access to the Data She Claims She Was Ordered to Delete

They let this lie fester for a year, because they're now in Tan Floridia Man Bad mode.

They're very keen to censor any "disinformation" -- except that which serves the Democrat Party.

Earlier this month Charles Cooke at NRO covered this same territory pretty convincingly, but yesterday a CBS affiliate in Florida published the results of their own investigation into Jones' claims. The story was headlined "Ousted dashboard designer’s claims don’t add up, former colleagues and experts say."

Starting with Jones' central claim, i.e. that she was asked to alter raw data on cases and deaths, CBS 12 echoes the point made earlier by Charles Cooke. Her former colleages say she never had access to that data in the first place, meaning it wouldn;t have been possible for her to change it.

CBS12 News sent Jones and her attorney a request for evidence proving she was asked to alter raw COVID data and we have not heard back...

A Florida Department of Health staffer working on the COVID response, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told CBS12 News that Jones' allegations are widely disputed amongst DOH employees.

The staffer adds that, from their understanding, Jones did not have access to the state data system or have the privileges to alter raw COVID data.

Sexton adds that CBS found that even if Jones could change the data she had access to, she could not work a cover-up, because the data was held by lots of people at different locations.

Which is obvious, when you think about it.

Rebekah Jones' claim that she was ordered to take part in a cover-up relies on the absurd assumption that if Rebekah Jones changed the data she had, everyone else's data -- on their spreadsheets, in their notebooks, in their files -- would magically change too, so that no one would notice the deletions.

Or maybe... they were ALL in on it!
