David Erickson: Did you see or see a sharing of the Plandemic conspiracy theory video?

BL Ochman: Uh-huh, I read about it. I didn't watch it, but I know all about it. Yeah.

How The Debunked Plandemic Conspiracy Video Went Viral From One Facebook Post [0:16]

David Erickson: Yeah. So the New York Times does a great in-depth story by Sheera Frenkel, Ben Decker and Davey Alba on how it spread, on how that video went viral. I had seen it in my Facebook feed, and some people that I know had shared it. So what they did with the article--they compared how the Plandemic video compared to other videos that went viral or other content that went viral during the same period.

And so on Facebook, Plandemic was liked, commented on or shared nearly 2.5 million times.

Compared To Viral Content By Taylor Swift, The Office Reunion & Pentagon UFO Videos [0:57]

David Erickson: And that's compared to Taylor Swift's May eight announcement about her City of Lover concert, which plateaued at about 110,000 interactions on Facebook.

And then there was The Office reunite on Zoom for a wedding, which was posted on May 10, and reach 618,000 interactions.

And the Pentagon had released videos--UFO videos on April 27, and had one 1 million interactions. So comparatively, that's how they stacked up.

They also had a timeline of how it went viral. So it was first posted in a QAnon Facebook group of 25,000 members QAnon is this lunatic right-wing conspiracy group. And then more than 1500 of those members shared the video to their networks.

Then there was a physician named Dr. Christiane Northrup, who is a celebrity physician. She's vaccine skeptic. She shared it on her Facebook page and more than 1000 of her followers shared it, many of them to antivaxxer groups.

And then the video was posted to Reopen Alabama Facebook group which had more than 36,000 followers. And that's part of a network of Reopen-insert-your-state-here, groups that's organized by a right-wing astroturf group and that spread to the political realm.

There's a guy named Nick Catone--I think is how you pronounce it--he's a professional mixed-martial arts fighter, celebrity, prominent antivaxxer. He shared it with his 70,000 followers on Facebook.

And then a candidate for Ohio...for the Ohio Republican Party primary--she lost--her name is Melissa Ackison...shared it to her 20,000 Facebook followers. And by then it went mainstream and BuzzFeed was reporting on it; in fact checking it, debunking it.

But you can see how it goes from conspiracy--major, lunatic fringe conspiracy theory groups--to other interested...antivaxxers, political groups, etc, etc. So it's a good long read put a link to it in the show notes
