'Misinformation' hearing with Facebook, Twitter, Google CEOs – why even more censorship may be next!


Hang on Sloopy!

On March 25, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, and Google CEO Sundar Pichai will appear virtually before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in a hearing about "misinformation" on online platforms.

As a former member of this committee, I am concerned about the increased calls for political censorship that it may fuel.

In announcing the hearing, the Democratic leaders of the committee said, "Whether it be falsehoods about the COVID-19 vaccine or debunked claims of election fraud, these online platforms have allowed misinformation to spread, intensifying national crises with real-life, grim consequences for public health and safety."

Unfortunately, what appears to be the Democratic leaders’ of the committee’s classification of "misinformation" — content that they disagree with politically — does not track with the dictionary’s definition of the term.

Already, Facebook is removing COVID-19-related claims that run contrary to data from the Chinese Communist Party-influenced World Health Organization (WHO).

Big Tech has also gone so far as to censor content from a respected 30-year environmentalist who changed his mind on climate change matters and limit the distribution of a news report that appeared damaging to the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee......

I've been raising the alarm for years! BigTech is working hand-in-hand with the liberal/progressive politicians to further their own goals! The stranglehold on 'information' will develop just as Orwell said it would!
