Emails Reveal Extensive Coordination Between CDC, Big Tech
Or "How to get around that pesky First Amendment"
One of (or perhaps the only) good things about bureaucracy is the resulting long, LONG paper trail. Uncovered by America First Legal and shared with the Washington Free Beacon, recently revealed emails between CDC officials and social media companies prove a long relationship in which the CDC provides ‘helpful examples’ about which posts and accounts should be censored for ‘covid misinformation’.
As I mentioned previously, one of the CDC’s examples of ‘misinformation’ regards male fertility:
This is literally the CDC telling Facebook and Twitter (and maybe more!) what to censor and how to censor it — a blatant First Amendment violation for thousands of Americans. And as we now know, the CDC’s ‘information’ was the actual misinformation. I have no doubt that if we had complete access to CDC files, we’d find a similar slide trying to silence ‘misinformation’ about the vaccine affecting women’s periods.
Other emails involve setting up ‘regular chats’ to discuss ‘problematic trends’, confirming ongoing communication between Twitter and the CDC.
Another email shows a $15,000,000 ‘gift’ from Facebook to the CDC in the form of ads to further the narrative:
I highly suggest reading the whole trove of files (only 35 pages). As with Fauci’s emails, even the ‘boring’ emails provide wonderful insight into how the bureaucracy functions (or doesn’t).
And as far as Facebook ‘fact-checking’ the definition of recession? I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.
