FILE - In this Friday, April 30, 2021 file photo, a man uses a mobile phone in New York. On Friday, July 16, 2021, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting The Democratic National Committee is working with the Biden administration to monitor private citizens’ SMS communications in a move to crack down on anti-vaccine text messages. But Lucas Acosta, a senior spokesperson for the DNC, said it is simply notifying SMS aggregator companies, like Twilio and Bandwidth, when it believes a political mass text is fraudulent or violates the company’s messaging policies. “The only texts reviewed are those distributed en masse to American citizens through broadcast text platforms and reported to the DNC.” The White House declined to comment on the record.

FILE - In this Wednesday, May 19, 2021 file photo, downtown Washington and the Washington Monument are seen behind a sign adverting a free vaccine drive with Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations for members of the community 12 years and up outside a school in southeast Washington. On Friday, July 16, 2021, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting President Joe Biden’s administration introduced a door-to-door campaign to offer COVID-19 vaccines as a way to confiscate guns or Bibles. But the vaccine campaign does not involve federal workers, it relies on local officials, private sector workers and volunteers to go into areas where there are lower vaccination rates and provide information on where to access the vaccine.

FILE - This Monday, Jan. 12, 2015 photo provided by NASA shows the first notable solar flare of 2015, as observed from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. On Friday, July 16, 2021, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting a solar storm is heading toward Earth and could impact cell phone signals and cause blackouts. But Alex Young, solar physicist at NASA, says a July 3 solar flare did interfere with some high frequency communication, but the impact was less than it could have been. “This was really very slow and it was not fully directed at Earth,” Young said. “We don’t have any expectation of seeing any impact on Earth.” (AP Photo/NASA, File)

FILE - In this Wednesday, April 7, 2021 file photo, President Joe Biden speaks during an event on the American Jobs Plan in the South Court Auditorium on the White House campus in Washington. On Friday, July 16, 2021, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting less than 5 cents of every dollar of the $4 trillion “infrastructure” bill actually goes to infrastructure. But Biden’s $4 trillion plan is actually made up of two distinct bill proposals: the American Jobs Plan and the American Families Plan. The former is a $2.3 trillion package for hard infrastructure items, while the latter is a companion bill of roughly equal size for soft infrastructure items like investments in child care, family tax credits and other domestic programs.

FILE - In this April 8, 2021, file photo, registered nurse fills a syringe with the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at a pop up vaccination site in the Staten Island borough of New York. On Friday, July 16, 2021, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting people who received COVID-19 vaccines are now legally patented and no longer have human rights, citing a 2013 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the case of Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, Inc. saying that found if a human genome is modified by mRNA vaccines then the genome can be patented. But COVID-19 vaccines, including those made by Pfizer and Moderna that rely on mRNA technology, do not change a person’s genetic makeup. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer, File)
