In a press briefing yesterday, Jen Sake made clear the WH is working with FB and other social media platforms to censure any information involving vaccines the WH considers misinformation because it is 'killing people'.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the administration is “flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation.” The White House is also working to get people who spread “misinformation” banned from multiple social media platforms.

Does this fool have any concept of what she's saying? 'Banning misinformation' is the starting point for every dictatorship that has ever existed. The whole purpose of the First Amendment is to prevent the single control of information. The Constitution assumes the average person will discern what is true and what is false. Each speaker can say whatever they wish to say, take any position they wish to take and draw whatever conclusions they wish to draw. The listener/reader will then determine fact from fiction. This really isn't that hard to understand.

Speaking of disinformation, here are a couple from the Sakemeister herself....

“Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo....”

"Georgia’s new voter integrity law closes polls early at 5 p.m."

"According to Dr. Fauci it is “highly likely” that the novel coronavirus first occurred naturally before spreading from animal to human"


Sounds like somebody needs to be censured.
