Fauci under fire after reports draw attention to his family’s controversial ties to Big Tech

On social media and elsewhere, the words of Dr. Anthony Fauci have been treated as gospel since the coronavirus pandemic first hit the U.S. early last year and the infectious diseases expert stepped into the spotlight to serve as a top adviser to the White House on the public health crisis.

But now, some outlets are reporting that there may be a conflict of interest involving Fauci’s daughter that could derail his long-standing reputation. Thus far, the mainstream media hasn’t picked up the story, however.

A conflict of interest?

While Fauci has been basking in the praise he’s received on Twitter over the last several months, his daughter Alison has been working as a software engineer for the Jack Dorsey-led social media company — in fact, she’s reportedly been there since 2014, as was first revealed by Heavy.com in a mid-2020 report.

Her employment there wouldn’t be an issue, except for the fact that Twitter has taken a particularly heavy-handed approach to managing “misinformation” about COVID-19. With Dr. Fauci on the frontlines of the information battle, his daughter’s ties to a company that has played gatekeeper for much the last year have some conservative outlets crying foul.

Twitter, for its part, first promised in March 2020 that it would be “expanding” its “safety rules to include content that could place people at a higher risk of transmitting COVID-19.”

Among the new rules: Twitter vowed to remove content that denies “expert guidance;” encourages “fake or ineffective treatments, preventions, and diagnostic techniques;” or is otherwise misleading with regard to recommendations from “experts and authorities.”

There’s no evidence Dr. Fauci’s daughter had a role in changing Twitter’s guidelines, but that hasn’t stopped many from speculating.

Fauci under fire

In the meantime, Dr. Fauci is also coming under fire for his recent criticism of states that are relaxing their COVID-19 protocols as vaccine distribution picks up and new cases of the disease drop off across the country.

According to The Hill, Fauci told CNN this week that while he understands that state leaders like Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) want to get back to “normality,” America just isn’t ready for that yet, in his view.

“I understand the need to want to get back to normality, but you’re only going to set yourself back if you just completely push aside the public health guidelines — particularly when we’re dealing with anywhere from 55 [thousand] to 70,000 infections per day in the United States,” he said.

But while Fauci continues to warn against complacency, business owners in Abbott’s Lone Star State are already grateful that the reins are finally being loosened.

“This past year has been so hard for everybody, for people like us and all the other small business owners,” one fourth-generation business owner told Houston’s KHOU 11. “This comes as a huge relief for people like us.”

  4. Fausi should be FIRED, for many reasons.I do not trust anything he states for the well being of most LEGAL Americans. He contradicts himself, I am beginning to feel that he feels that he is KING of the WORLD, and can do whatever he pleases even though many Americans feel betrayed by his comments and are insulted for the way he adds insult to already hurting citizens. GET RID OF THIS MONSTER!

  5. He’s a democrat that says it all .Hes not worried about illegals.He is worried about legal citizens.How stupid is he.So that makes him a “liar” no doubt about it

  6. He needs to put the same restrictions on the illegals that they are forcing on us otherwise they need to go back and not come here the border needs to be closed down

  7. I have said from the onset that this man cannot be trusted I have no proof in hand, just a ninety year conception of people. He is a liar, that is proven by his lack of candor with the American people, he is a thief of the worst kind, the thievery being he has stolen a year from this country, ruining businesses, certainly ruin ing the lives of your children with the closing of schools. This wimped image of a man follows the democrats sucking the life out of this country.

  8. Our government is so full of crooks and liar’s that we should fire everybody and start over again. We need more people who are up front with the people and more for America and it’s people . We need someone who is more Transparent and full of energy and idea’s and has the balls to talk the talk and walk the walk which he proved that to the people also.

  9. Fauci and Obama. own this Virus. let’s not leave out Bill Gates… This is population CONTROL…. People WAKE UP….

  10. They used this Virus to Manipulate the ELECTION. control the people. Take off the masks and DON’T TAKE the VACCINE…

  11. I just laugh how people think getting a vaccine is going to save their lives. This vaccine is going to be like getting the flu shot every year. There will be multiple Covid strains to deal with, just like the flu. Masks are not going to save you either, the nanny state really has to get over themselves. To me me Fauci is just a Democratic operative at the highest level. I sorry , I just don’t buy his BS.He hasn’t been right from the very beginning.

  12. Fauci is a CCP operative leading us down the garden path with nothing but lies… the corona virus is only another strain of flu…. and you are right, we will have to take shots every year with some other variant of the VIRUS!!! The states should have distanced themselves from Fauci last year and resolved to stop the lockdowns and dealt with the pandemic in their own way….: like President Trump suggested!! But they chose not to then and now see that they were wrong in their choice and will do the best they can to correct their errors….. people be responsible, masks will not stop us from getting the virus nor the vaccine…. we have to live responsibly and do the right thing….. no one can force us to do it we have to choose to do it…….
