In spite of the now well-established consensus around Rebekah Jones — a consensus reached in no small part thanks to the efforts of National Review‘s Charlie Cooke — the New York Times continues to tout Jones as a “data scientist” who credibly alleged that she was asked to manipulate data.

On Friday, Florida announced that given declining caseloads, it would no longer be publishing daily updates to its COVID dashboard, instead opting for weekly refreshers.  The Times article on the change all but directs its readers to Jones’s alternative dashboard as a substitute. It does not acknowledge that Jones’s myriad allegations against Florida governor Ron DeSantis have been debunked, instead entertaining not only her her claims about data manipulation, but also her lies about the purpose and nature of a police raid on her home.

The truth is that Jones was fired for a litany of performance and behavioral issues, including intentionally crashing the state dashboard in the thick of the pandemic last May. As for the police raid, it had nothing to do with her conspiracy theorizing against DeSantis and had everything to do with a Department of Health data breach traced back to her IPv6 address.
