'The claim: COVID-19 vaccinated American Airlines pilots died during flights

As air travel across the U.S. faces a spike in unruly passengers, aircrew understaffing and flight cancellations, one article circulating on social media takes it a large step further by claiming vaccinated airline pilots are dying while on duty.

"Vaccinated Pilots Dropping Dead Mid-Flight," reads the headline of an article shared to Facebook on Oct. 28.

The article, published on a website called bestnewshere.com, claims that two American Airlines' pilots died in October during separate flights leaving Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. One pilot is described as dying from cardiac arrest during an Oct. 15 flight bound for Fort Meyers, Fla. The other, a co-pilot on a flight to Los Angeles, died from "acute myocarditis," an inflammation of the heart muscle, the article claims.

The article asserts both pilots had been vaccinated a few weeks before their flights and that there have been "at least 12 non-fatal incidents involving pilots that had recently received the jab."

However, none of this is true, said American Airlines spokesperson Whitney Zastrow in an email to USA TODAY.

That's because the article is fabricated, originating from a website that regularly publishes fantastical, false stories.

USA TODAY was unable to reach bestnewshere.com for comment.
Article originated from fake news website

The article is a repost of an Oct. 27 article published on another website called Real Raw News, which is attributed as the source for the information within the story.

Despite the seemingly authentic headlines and reporting, the website has a disclaimer saying otherwise.

"Information on this website is for informational and educational and entertainment purposes," reads the disclaimer found on Real Raw News' "About Us" page. "This website contains humor, parody, and satire."

Sound more like pure bullshit than fear porn.

Fear porn is like Fauci saying that the reason so many vaxxed people are being hospitalized is that they don't have the booster.

~ Sound more like pure bullshit than fear porn.
It isn't bullshit for millions of disease transmitters that believe it.
~ Fear porn is like Fauci saying that the reason so many vaxxed people are being hospitalized is that they don't have the booster.
Except that more intelligent people like you should recognize that what Fauci is saying is probably true and he's promulgating that information for your own benefit.
So why does he tout the Israeli study on boosters while he ignore the Israeli study on natural immunity? He seems to pick and choose based some idea in his head that he will not share.

My biggest beef with him is ignoring natural immunity. Destroying the small business economy is a discussion for another time.

If I recall correctly, the Israeli natural immunity study was done before immunity had time to wane. It would be irresponsible to 'tout' that now.

And the people claiming that more have died from the vaccine than from Covid?

He is trying to convince people to get boosters, and I'll bet he has the
data to back it up. It's not like this wasn't predictable, booster shots
are normal.
