Private-federal censorship machine targeted TRUE 'misinformation'

Did you make any “worrisome jokes” about the Biden administration’s proposal to send agents door-to-door to browbeat people to get COVID vaccines? Then you were a public enemy guilty of spreading dangerous disinformation.

Did you ask questions about COVID policy? You were guilty of a tactic “commonly used by spreaders of misinformation to deflect culpability.”

Did you complain to anyone that vaccine passports violated your liberty? You were deluded, if not depraved, and guilty of propelling a deceptive “anti-vaccination narrative about the loss of rights and freedoms.”

Your tax dollars at work: These are the bizarre revelations from the latest and perhaps funniest Twitter Files from Matt Taibbi.

Last week, House Democrats pounded Taibbi as a “so-called journalist,” a hypocrite, a threat to the peace and a stooge for Elon Musk.

Now, Taibbi has settled scores with “The Great Covid-19 Lie Machine,” exposing the machinations of federal contractors spurring social-media companies to censor Americans who doubted COVID decrees.


In terms of sheer scale, this has to be the biggest and most ambitious conspiracy to undermine free speech in American history. And it was a real conspiracy, not just a figurative conspiracy. You had secret meetings, violations of law, of constitutional principles, and you probably had profit motives, though that is yet to be proven. You got the whole darn thing. Golly.

Aye. Obviously that must have been true though it's always comforting to have evidence of a conspiracy rather then just a deduction that it must have existed.

But what the hell was it all about? On that I reject the population-reducing super-conspiracy thesis: these guys aren't competent enough to run such a thing.
