Did WEF Order Slaughter Of Millions Of US Chickens?!

Did the WEF just order US farmers to slaughter millions of chickens to prevent bird flu?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!


Claim : WEF Just Ordered Slaughter Of Millions Of US Chickens!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that the WEF just ordered US farmers to slaughter millions of chickens to prevent bird flu!

Here is an excerpt of the article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

WEF Orders US Farmers To Slaughter MILLIONS of Chickens To Prevent Bird Flu

The World Economic Forum has ordered US farmers to slaughter millions of healthy chickens as a preventative measure to stop the spread of bird flu.

Truth : WEF Did Not Order Slaughter Of Millions Of US Chickens!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : WEF Did Not Order Slaughter of US Chickens!

Let me start by pointing out that the WEF (World Economic Forum) is only an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) that focuses on public-private sector collaboration.

The World Economic Forum has no power over world governments, beyond its lobbying and influencing efforts. The WEF may be an influential lobbying organisation, but it cannot order farmers to do anything, never mind the US government.

If the WEF actually ordered US farmers to slaughter their chickens, it would have been reported widely. Yet, there was no such report by the mainstream media. That’s because … it never happened!

Fact #2 : US Agriculture Department Ordered The Cull

It was the US Agriculture Department, not the WEF, that ordered the cull of 4.2 million chickens in Iowa, after a case of the highly-pathogenic bird flu was detected at a large egg farm in Sioux County, Iowa.

Why would The People’s Voice article claim it was the WEF???

Fact #3 : The People’s Voice Provided No Evidence

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided zero evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim that the WEF ordered US farmers to slaughter millions of chickens to prevent bird flu!

In fact, WEF is only mentioned twice in its entire article – in its title, and the lede. After that, there was no mention of the World Economic Forum, never mind the WEF ordering any US farmer to kill millions of chickens to prevent bird flu!

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:
