The Biden Cancer Initiative spent the majority of the millions it brought in on salaries and zero on research but pointing that out is "misleading," according to Snopes.
The New York Post exposed Biden's shady "charity" in an article last week titled, "Tax filings reveal Biden cancer charity spent millions on salaries, zero on research":
The Biden Cancer Initiative was founded in 2017 by the former vice president and his wife Jill Biden to "develop and drive implementation of solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, research and care and to reduce disparities in cancer outcomes," according to its IRS mission statement. But it gave out no grants in its first two years, and spent millions on the salaries of former Washington DC aides it hired."Sometimes disinformation states the facts correctly but frames them misleadingly," Snopes' Bethania Palma said in a "fact-checking" article on Monday.
"Although the charity spent no money on cancer research grants, this fact is misleadingly framed in that the Biden Cancer Initiative wasn't a grant-giving organization," Snopes said.
Though Snopes acknowledged the "charity" spent over $3 million on salaries, they failed to mention that was the majority of the $4,809,619 total they took in. They also failed to mention that Simon was a longtime health care lobbyist.
Snopes reported that Simon told them the organization was dedicated to "creating collaborations among companies, universities, nonprofits, patient groups, researchers, and the government" and their mission "was to work with patients from the bottom up to make things change."
