It took $44 billion of Elon Musk’s money to uncover how national-security agencies like the FBI and Homeland Security — as well as Adam Schiff — conducted censorship on Twitter. Those revelations are still continuing, even while not much else seems to be changing on that platform.
But what about Facebook? Who’s got $100 billion or so to buy out Mark Zuckerberg and get a peek under Meta’s hood? Reason Magazine certainly doesn’t, but it turns out that all Robby Soave needed was a lawsuit and a court order or two. Internal documents show that Facebook essentially allowed the CDC to dictate terms of discussion and debate on its platform relating to COVID-19 as part of its “fact-checking” process:
The Facebook Files, which were obtained by Reason as a result of the state of Missouri’s lawsuit against the Biden administration, reveal that the CDC had substantial influence over what users were allowed to discuss on Meta’s platforms: Facebook and Instagram.
The messages reveal an environment where the CDC kept tabs on Meta’s moderation practices and regularly told the company what the agency wanted it to do.
For instance, in May 2021, CDC officials began routinely vetting claims about COVID-19 vaccines that had appeared on Facebook. The platform left it up to the federal government to determine which assertions were accurate. …

But, but, but the hard working managers made a crap ton of bribe, oops royalties, and they only had THEIR OWN BEST INTERESTS IN MIND.
Yea, time to waterboard them ALL. Maybe there are some “experiments” as test subjects they would like to volunteer for????
Government employee’s using taxpayer dollars to censor free speech and factual and truthful information, and then spread knowingly false assertions to the public.
Sure sounds like it should be a FELONY punishable by 20 years for all of them.
Make up the blank warrants
FB likes the CCP after all.
The CDC, FBI and all the rest of the alphabet agencies only censor those that tell the truth. They hate the truth.
“The platform left it up to the federal government to determine which assertions were accurate. …”
The fact is, it’s still a 1st Amendment violation for the government to be censoring speech, even if it is “inaccurate”. We have a right to be wrong!
Well, #1 it’s a firing offense. And #2 such an action strips those employees of any civil liability shield that they would otherwise have as government employees, so they can be sued personally for civil rights violations.
But I don’t think it’s actually criminal. Perhaps it rises to a conspiracy charge or RICO act thing if you can connect this censorship to some other felonious/fraudulent activities.
Yahoo regularly block users from posting any information about the chinese virus or the deadly vaccines.
I am sure they have the democrat party and pharma telling them what to do.
Thanks for the ping. Slowly but surely the COVID scamdemic is being revealed.
1. Who will pay for the thousands of deaths?
That’s probably why I was banned for life. They didn’t give me a reason.
