White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Friday that the Biden administration is working directly with social media companies to combat “misinformation.”
She framed this issue as if it was all about COVID but that’s a head fake. This is about the Biden White House shutting down any speech it doesn’t like, and it’s obvious.
If Trump had done anything like this, our liberal media would have had a collective nervous breakdown and called it an abuse of the First Amendment.
FOX News reports:
The White House is courting intense criticism again Friday after press secretary Jen Psaki said that once users are banned from one social media platform for spreading coronavirus “misinformation,” they should be expelled from all others as well.
Remarking on steps social media outlets could take for public health, she advised they “create robust enforcement strategies that bridge their properties and provide transparency about rules. You shouldn’t be banned from one platform and not others if you are for providing misinformation out there.”
The remarks riled critics already concerned about collaboration between the Biden administration and Big Tech Psaki discussed from the podium on Thursday, as they seek to vaccinate more Americans amid spikes in coronavirus cases in the past few weeks.

This is none of the government’s business. They are supposed to protect rights like free speech.
Why is the White House declaring who should and shouldn’t be banned from social media platforms?
Google, Facebook, and Twitter are effectively state actors in disguise when they engage in political censorship. https://t.co/JwkPgcbcbt

The Democrats are everything they accused Trump of being and they prove it every week.
