DAMNING DOCUMENTS UNCOVERED: CDC directly colluded with Twitter, Facebook to censor free speech
Ethan Huff, Natural News, December 09, 2022
(Natural News) A fourth batch of documents released by America First Legal (AFL) show that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conspired with social media corporations like Facebook and Twitter to silence free speech under the guise of fighting “misinformation.”
At Twitter, the CDC colluded to run a “Partner Support Portal” for government employees and other “stakeholders,” allowing them to flag and submit “misinformation” posts for removal from the platform. At least one government employee logged into this portal via a personal Twitter account, the documents show.
At Facebook, a similar approach was taken for election-related censorship. The CDC helped the Mark Zuckerberg empire to “socially inoculate,” or brainwash, the public against anything that threatened the official government version of events about the election, covid, and other matters.
“They used Big Tech to monitor and manipulate users to censor unapproved information and push government propaganda,” reports explain.
“For example, Facebook sent written materials to the CDC bragging about censoring more than sixteen million ‘pieces of content.’ The content contained opinions or information the U.S. government wanted suppressed.”
The CDC also “collaborated” with UNICEF, the World Health Organization (WHO), and IFCN member and “leading civil society” organization Mafindo to combat “disinformation” on the internet.
Mafindo, in case you are unfamiliar with that name, is a third-party “fact checking” operation partner of Facebook. It is based out of Indonesia and is directly funded by Google. (Related: The CDC’s smartphone app was recently discovered to contain hidden Russian software.)
So, when will the punishments begin?
In a statement, AFL clarified what each batch of documents, this being the fourth, have uncovered. The first, it said, highlighted the Biden regime’s censorship push against covid “misinformation” while the second tied the CDC to Facebook and Twitter.
“AFL’s first release of documents revealed the explicit collusion between the CDC and Big Tech to censor what the Biden Administration deemed ‘misinformation’ and push covert COVID-19 propaganda,” the group said. “The second release built the evidentiary record showing that CDC specifically sent Facebook and Twitter-specific posts to take down, throttle, censor, or flag.”
“AFL’s third release revealed that the CDC’s mask guidance policies for school children were driven by political polling by liberal dark money group The Kaiser Family Foundation rather than science.”
It is all good and well to be learning about all this, but what millions of Americans want to know is what will be done about it? Will anyone ever actually be held accountable for these crimes?
