The Suppression of Inconvenient Truths About COVID on Twitter; ‘Twitter Files’: Big Pharma Pressured Platform to Censor COVID-19 Vaccine Debate, and other C-Virus related stories

The suppression of inconvenient truths about COVID on Twitter:
Pfizer and the White House engaged in behind-the-scenes efforts to pressure social media companies into censoring truthful information about COVID-19 and vaccines.
That’s the revelation now emerging from Twitter’s internal company communications, thrown open by new owner Elon Musk, as well as from the discovery process in a lawsuit filed against the Biden administration by the states of Missouri and Louisiana together with several individual plaintiffs.
The purpose of the censorship was to protect the untruthful narrative that the science was settled and the experts were unanimous. Anyone who said otherwise was “killing people,” in the words of President Joe Biden on July 16, 2021.
Biden’s remark was part of a public effort from the White House podium to pressure Facebook and other platforms into increasing their censorship of certain conversations about COVID-19.
But the non-public coercion had been going on for months.
White House director of digital media Rob Flaherty berated a Facebook executive in a March 14, 2021, email. “We are gravely concerned that your service is one of the top drivers of vaccine hesitancy — period,” Flaherty wrote. “We want to know that you’re trying, we want to know how we can help, and we want to know that you’re not playing a shell game.” Then, in a remark that had a distinctly gangster-like ring to it, Flaherty added, “This would all be a lot easier if you would just be straight with us.”
Allow me to remind Americans who have forgotten, after three years of relentless government bullying, that the United States Constitution is in force all the time and it never takes a sick day. The Constitution enumerates the limited powers of the federal government, and then, for emphasis, there’s a Bill of Rights — 10 amendments that specifically list things the government is not allowed to do. --->READ MORE HERE

‘Twitter Files’: Big Pharma pressured platform to censor COVID-19 vaccine debate:
The pharmaceutical industry lobbied Twitter to censor posts critical of the COVID-19 vaccine, the latest batch of Elon Musk’s “Twitter Files” shows.
Internal emails, unveiled by Intercept reporter Lee Fang on Monday, show those efforts included attempts to silence users demanding generic vaccines for low-income countries and later expanded into a broad censorship campaign to “shape content around vaccine policy.”
In December 2020, German biotech giant BioNTech emailed Twitter directly to ask content moderators to censor users who had posted tweets asking the company to share its intellectual property and patents to allow other drugmakers to produce generic vaccines at lower costs.
That email was followed, one day later, with another from a European lobbyist representing the pharmaceutical industry warning Twitter about an impending campaign by activists calling for low-cost vaccines on the platform. The lobbyist cued Twitter to be on the lookout for users posting #PeoplesVaccine, among other hashtags.
The lobbyist also asked the platform to keep an eye on the accounts owned by BioNTech, Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna.
“The authorities are warning about “serious consequences” of the action, i.e. posts and a flood of comments “that may violate [Twitter’s terms of service]” as well as the “takeover of user accounts” are to be expected,” the lobbyist warned. --->READ MORE HERE
