“The story itself was vetted at a higher degree than any other story in the five years that I was working with them, was vetted higher than any other story. Because I chose to self-vet it through the highest levels of editorial control at our station. Which I didn't have to do and I chose to do that because of the sensitivity of the subject matter we were talking about. And so it ran through the highest levels of journalists at that entity, all the way up through news managers, who have had 30-40 years in the business, were looking at it. And when they came back and said was 'yeah this is solid, it's totally solid'. [...] And one thing that I forgot is, there was so much that we couldn't say, so much that we intentionally left out because it was so wild, we couldn't put some of it on TV.”

Views on Covid-19
On 18 March 2020, Ben Swann warned that seasonal flu could be twice as deadly as the COVID-19 outbreak. In a YouTube video, he suggested taking a look at the numbers from the WHO, and in an “apples to apples” comparison, he showed that the Coronavirus Disease has half the mortality rate of seasonal flu when it comes to "death to confirmed cases" ratio.
In 2015, he was hired by CBS affiliate WGCL-TV in Atlanta, Georgia. He was suspended in January 2017 for running a story about Pizzagate, reinstated after he took down his Truth in Media and Reality Check sites, but then fired in 2018, after which he relaunched Reality Check.
