An investigation by DBUNK has found that a news article published by NBC News, titled “DeSantis and RFK Jr. Misconstrue Fed’s Digital Plans in Warning of Government Overreach,” is only partially factual.
The article claimed that the Federal Reserve is exploring the possibility of issuing a digital version of the dollar and that this could be used to “control” Americans’ finances and enforce policies such as vaccine mandates.
However, DBUNK’s fact-check analysis found that while the Federal Reserve is indeed exploring the possibility of issuing a digital dollar, they have not committed to actually doing so and have not mentioned any intention to throttle transactions. As such, the article is partially factual but could be misleading to readers.
At DBUNK, we believe that it is important for readers to be informed and able to make decisions based on accurate information.
