White House Is “Turning Up The Heat On COVID Misinformation”

Now, again, imagine this was the Trump White House doing this: how would CNN respond. In a blase’ manner, or full throated barking moonbat apoplexy?

White House turns up heat on Big Tech’s Covid ‘disinformation dozen’

spite houseThe White House turned up the pressure on Silicon Valley to get a handle on vaccine misinformation Thursday, specifically singling out 12 people one group dubbed the “disinformation dozen,” saying they were responsible for a great deal of misinformation about Covid-19.

“There’s about 12 people who are producing 65% of anti-vaccine misinformation on social media platforms,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday.

That statistic is from the nonprofit Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) which identified in a report published in March about a dozen people it said were super-spreaders of anti-vaccine misinformation.

The CCDH had at the time called on Facebook and Twitter to shut down all pages run by those people.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a prominent figure in the anti-vaccine movement, is among the people whom the CCDH said should be kicked off social media.

CNN would be screeching about Fascism and authoritarianism and Trump turning into a dictator and that this is bad for Democracy and violates the 1st Amendment, as would the rest of the Credentialed Media. Pelosi and her Comrades would already be talking about impeachment. China Joe doing it? Crickets. Straight articles with zero condemnation. And it might not violate the actual letter of the 1st, but, it violates the spirit. Regardless, it is insane that the White House would be going after 12 people (and surely more) who dare use their Free Speech to put out their beliefs. They could be very wrong, and probably are wrong, but, it’s their Constitutional right to yammer.

CNN reported Thursday that meetings between the Biden administration and Facebook have grown “tense,” according to a person familiar with the conversations.

The person pointed specifically to Kennedy’s still-active Facebook account as an example of what some White House officials view as Facebook’s inaction regarding Covid-19 misinformation.

Kennedy’s Instagram was shut down, but, his Facebook is still up. It’s straight up Soviet Union style tactics, or, better, more modern, Chinese Communist government, tactics to do this.

      The difference between the Democrats and the Nazis is the Nazis only needed one Reichstag Fire.

    It still boggles the mind that a BigTech company discriminates at will and the argument is it’s a private company so it’s all good, yet in these last few years leftists have forced religious small companies to do or make products they didn’t want to, often at extremely high legal costs.
