As we told you earlier this week, an IG report found “insufficient evidence” to support former Florida health worker Rebekah Jones’ (who the media continues to refer to as a “whistleblower” when in fact she was just spreading false narratives) claims that she was directed to falsify Covid numbers in the state.

That was all BS:

A prominent critic of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Covid response made “unsubstantiated” claims that state health officials had fired her because she refused to present manipulated data online, according to an inspector general’s report obtained by NBC News on Thursday.

The 27-page report from the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Inspector General said it found “insufficient evidence” to support Rebekah Jones’ accusations that she was asked to falsify Covid positivity rates or misrepresent them on the state’s dashboard she helped design. The report also “exonerated” officials accused by Jones of wrongdoing because they removed a data section from the website to ensure that private individual health information was not released publicly.

The independent report paints a portrait of an employee who did not understand public health policy or the significance of epidemiological data, did not have high-level access to crucial information and leveled claims that made professional health officials “skeptical.”

The Miami Herald reporter who was among those helping provide Jones’ initial claims with legitimacy noted the IG report:

At that point, the New York Post’s Karol Markowicz spotted a dragging in progress:

National Review’s Charles C.W. Cooke wasn’t about to let the Miami Herald reporter or her paper get away with it that easily:

Maybe we should just assume those questions to be rhetorical in nature, but Cooke wasn’t finished:

Such is the state of modern “journalism.”

OOF.

We’ll wait for answers to those questions… probably for a long time.
