Report: Biden administration is working with social media giants to curtail spread of vaccine ‘misinformation’

While Donald Trump promised to crack down on big-tech interference in communications, Joe Biden’s White House is taking a very different approach.

Reuters reported over the weekend that the Biden White House is quietly partnering with Facebook and Twitter to clamp down on anti-vaccine communication and information on the platforms.

Vaccine “hesitancy”

What started as a campaign to combat “misinformation” related to the election and COVID-19 is rapidly extending into other areas such as general health information, once again raising concerns that these so-called platforms are acting more like publishers.

Throughout the vaccine development process, some have expressed hesitancy to get the inoculation due to the short time it took to develop the vaccine as well as the potential for unknown side effects.

Biden’s White House views this “hesitancy” as unacceptable in its quest to get 100 percent of the nation vaccinated, blaming uncontrolled social media communications as the culprit.

According to a source close to the White House, “disinformation that causes vaccine hesitancy is going to be a huge obstacle to getting everyone vaccinated and there are no larger players in that than the social media platforms.”

“We are talking to them,” referring to Silicon Valley social media giants, “so they understand the importance of misinformation and disinformation and how they can get rid of it quickly,” the anonymous source added.

The White House has zeroed in on events such as an independently organized vaccine protest organized on Facebook as the type of “misinformation” that must be cracked down upon.

Controlling communication

This White House decision comes as a larger debate about big tech’s role in controlling the communication of users on their platforms continues to rage.

The desire for control over the communications of Americans is growing as Democrat-sympathetic social media giants and the Biden administration face few obstacles in their mutual goals.

So-called “independent fact-checkers” — shadowy individuals that are not experts in the fields they are censoring — have been turned loose on platforms like Facebook and Twitter since the outset of COVID-19 to keep conversations in check and to prevent Americans from sharing information that isn’t approved by the government — no matter the source.

Celebrity doctor Drew Pinsky spoke out against the censorship of those that don’t toe the line after one of his own Youtube interviews with another physician discussing COVID-19 was taken down, tweeting last week:

Physicians are easily frightened, whether by liability, ruined reputation, and now they’re frightened to even talk about their own profession! We must return to openly discussing medicine and science. That’s what science is all about!

  1. In the 1918 Flu Pandemic in which over 750,000 Americans died, tens of thousands who were vaccinated died…think about it folks…we are being injected with a Covid vaccine with limited long-term testing so we have no evidence of side effects, drug interactions or if after receiving the Covid vaccine can we still acquire the disease…or how long will the Covid vaccine last? We are being treated like experimental rats and when enough of us die Saint Fauci will be given the opportunity for the tenth time to again change his mind.

    1. Commie fauci has been indoctrinated by the commie Biden. regime. Herd mentality. Inoculate the herd before they discover us, is what Biden means.

  3. Not a chance. I do not need nor believe in a vaccine that is rushed, DNA altering, and produced by Big Pharma under a complete exoneration from liability. I don’t need it and I don’t want it.

  4. Talk to Italy, then OD on your vaccine while I just take 100mgs of aspirin. There is no spike! Should be if it’s as deadly as you hype. No virus, it’s a bacteria that clots the blood. Next.

    1. The Whitehouse and all of government can certainly publish their views in support of the Covid vaccines, but they have no legal athourity to conspire with big tech to censor opposition views. To do so would violate freedom of speech rights guaranteed in the 1st Ammendment. Should Traitor Joe do this he would need to resign or face justified impeachment and removal from office.

    2. Yup, Sir, me thinks you understand what’s going on here. The Marxist aren’t just in Germany, they’re moving in on the good old USA.

  5. Sleepy Joe,the ONLY way you have any hope of 100% vaccination is to go door to door giving the shots to every person in that home a shot! That ain’t gonna happen,jack! I’m still undecided as to whether or not I will get the vaccine or not,but understand this…I will get the vaccine when I decide to! Not you,not f*c##p fauci,or any other idiot who couldn’t find their butt without a road map and guide!!😡😡 And I’m sure there are 1000s more with the same thought. So deal with it,folks! This ain’t Burger King!

    1. Exactly my words! The reports from Scientific Doctors stating they do not know the actual reaction of this vaccine. They continued to say that the bad reactions to these shots could show up 2 years later. From heart problems to neurology problems. They also continued to say that there was not enough testing done on it as it was rammed through so fast. Also, they remarked on what went into these vaccines. So our whole family and friends are not getting the vaccines at this time. We are following all protocols to stay safe. I know alot will disagree, but we have a right to our choice.

    I wonder how long before vaccinations are mandatory?  Right now they are just trying to coax us…. this is a huge money making project . The ones in charge are taking it a little easy right now… wait until they decide it’s time to also install “Chips in our arms”, with all our personal info medical and otherwise. Yes, that is part of Bill Gate’s plan for all of us. Does that remind you of something similar that happened  a long time ago, in a Communist Country?? Difference is, that was only a tattooed # to identify the person. This will be much more intrusive and personal . I hope People wake up before it is too late… This isn’t the friendly grandfather, that wants to unite everyone with his soft spoken voice. Give me the stronger rough voice that worked for the betterment of every American . It might have sounded rough , but smart people soon realized it worked for the good of
    all American citizens.
