How Big Tech became an arm of the government. From Zachary Stieger and Enrico Trigoso at The Epoch Times via childrenshealthdefense.org:
People who were branded as disinformation purveyors say the new documents showing coordination between Big Tech and President Joe Biden’s administration is an important step in combating the collusion.
“As one of the Disinformation Dozen, I am thrilled to see that both Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeffrey Landry of Louisiana have had the courage to take a stand against the massive and well-orchestrated censorship that has attempted to silence me, my colleagues and quite frankly, hundreds of others.
“It is about time,” Dr. Christiane Northrup, an obstetrician-gynecologist, told The Epoch Times in a text message.
Schmitt and Landry, both Republican attorney generals, brought a suit against the administration for alleged violations of the First Amendment in pressuring social media companies to censor users. The documents came as a result of discovery in the case.
In 2021, a nonprofit called the Center for Countering Digital Hate claimed that just 12 people — described as the “disinformation dozen” — were responsible for most of the “anti-vaccine” content on social media.
The White House took the report and used it to pressure Big Tech to suppress alleged misinformation and disinformation.
