Biden White House Worked With Big Tech To Censor Covid ‘Misinformation’

via NBC News

The Biden administration collaborated with YouTube to tackle COVID-19 vaccine misinformation in 2021.

Internal documents obtained by FOX Business reveal that the White House sought assistance from Google to quell vaccine hesitancy and misinformation.

Former White House Director of Digital Strategy Rob Flaherty led the campaign and corresponded with Google team members about combating misinformation. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Removes God From National Address)

The documents also show that the White House was particularly interested in YouTube’s policies and work to reduce borderline content.

“Really [Flaherty’s] interested in what we’re seeing that is NOT coming down,” an email thread read between Google staff.

“…there is a very high degree of interest now coming from the White House now regarding vaccine misinfo/vaccine hesitancy and our work around borderline content,” read the internal email.

“Unfortunately, the role of tech in addressing vaccine hesitancy is about to come under a massive spotlight particularly as the supply of the vaccine is soon to outpace demand,” read the April 2021 correspondence.

“We were hoping to get something on the books in the next two weeks or so to prevent anything from potentially spiraling out of control,” the email said.

“Over the last several weeks, the Google & YT GAAP team have had conversations with the White House staff on YouTube’s policies and all the great work that is being done to raise authoritative information and fight harmful misinformation related to COVID-19 misinformation,” the email stated.

“…we believe having the opportunity for you both to share more background would be hugely beneficial as we seek to work closely with this administration on multiple policy fronts,” the Government Affairs team said.

House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, said, “We knew the Biden White House worked to censor American speech with the help of Big Tech. Internal documents from Google obtained by the Judiciary Committee and Select Subcommittee show that their scheme extended to YouTube.”

“The Committees will continue their critical investigative work to protect Americans’ First Amendment rights and put an end to the vast government censorship enterprise,” Jordan added.

The House Judiciary Committee has obtained these documents and is conducting investigations into the matter.
