BBC's "fact-checkers" now say that the phrase ´The Great Reset´ is 'baseless conspiracy theory’
when, in fact, this exact phrase was coined by the WEF chairman, appears on the WEF website and front cover of Time Magazine and is referred to by leaders, from Trudeau to Biden.
Amusing that the BBC would do this, even as the BBC's own website hosts a "Reset" article! https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00kt6yr
Problem here is that the Fact Checkers have conflated a number of different elements - a horrible virus, a WEF project and a strawman "New World Order" red herring - which fails to ask a more important question of the Great Reset: sounds like a good idea, but could we please have more transparency and democratic input, rather than being delivered a pre-cooked plan out of Davos in the midst of an economic meltdown?
Of course the WEF is not 'co-ordinating a secret cabal
of world leaders'. The WEF group is all in plain site, featuring faces across their own website, from Prince Charles to Amal Clooney to various top bankers and policy makers.
Also the BBC FactCheckers appear to have failed to fact-check this assertion: "The plan explores how countries might recover from the economic damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic.(sic)"
Was the economic damage (in its totality) directly "caused by"
the pandemic ... or were the seeds of the damage not already well underway beforehand, caused by reckless economic policies?
The Great Reset (WEF version) was floated last year. Proof will be in the pudding. Best we familiarise ourselves with Schwab's book (just ordered it on Kindle)

BBC Fact Checkers
-- We start with the revival of the baseless conspiracy theory, known as the 'Great Reset'
, which claims a group of world leaders orchestrated the pandemic to take control of the global economy.
The conspiracy theory has its origins in a genuine plan entitled 'The Great Reset', drawn up by the World Economic Forum (WEF), the organisers of an annual conference for high-profile figures from politics and business, The plan explores how countries might recover from the economic damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Screenshot of a tweet that says "The Great Reset = The New World Order..." BBC added a "no evidence" label.
The WEF recovery plan has been interpreted as sinister, first by fringe conspiracy theory groups on social media, and then by prominent conservative commentators - prompting tens of thousands of interactions across Facebook and Twitter.
It started trending globally on Twitter last week, when a video of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a UN meeting, saying the pandemic provided an opportunity for a "reset", went viral.
This sparked fresh claims from people, within Canada and further afield, that a cabal of global leaders is using the pandemic to introduce a range of damaging socialist and environmental policies.
When asked about conspiracy theories at the end of the week, Mr Trudeau said: "I think we're in a time of anxiety, where people are looking for reasons for things that are happening to them... we're seeing a lot of people fall prey to disinformation."
A video from August, which now has close to three million views on YouTube, believes only Donald Trump can thwart this secret plot, which uses Covid-19 to bring the US economy to its knees so the "reset" can begin and people will be "begging" for vaccines.
But the suggestion that politicians planned the virus, or are using it to destroy capitalism is wholly without evidence.
So too is the notion that the World Economic Forum has the authority to tell other countries what to do, or that it is coordinating a secret cabal of world leaders.BBC LINK
