The establishment and the Left still blame Facebook for Donald Trump’s election.
Part of Zuckerberg’s penance seems to be ratcheting up unbelievable levels of censorship on everything from election reforms to COVID.
And mRNA vaccines inventor ripped Facebook censorship and declared “new science goes against Pfizer’s lies and deception” in an epic takedown.
Inventor of mRNA vaccines Dr. Robert Malone, MD took to Twitter over Christmas to rip Facebook censorship and declare that “new science goes against Pfizer’s lies and deception.”
Facebook Now Censoring the British Medical Journal Because New Science Goes Against Pfizer’s Lies and Deceptionhttps://t.co/J0hoR5CuDx
— Robert W Malone, MD (@RWMaloneMD) December 25, 2021
Malone’s post was sparked by Facebook’s censorship of an article from the British Medical Journal, one of the oldest and most respected medical journals.
The British Medical Journal (BMJ), one of the oldest and most prestigious medical journals in the world, has slammed Facebook’s censorship of an investigative story commissioned by the Journal into alleged poor clinical trial research practices at Ventavia, a contractor used by Pfizer in its coronavirus vaccine trial. The story commissioned by the BMJ was published on November 2 this year, but was promptly “fact checked” on Facebook by Lead Stories, one of Facebook’s third-party “fact checkers.”
Third-party “independent” fact checkers are how social media companies get away with censorship.
The Left have been pushing to crack down on “misinformation,” which is essentially any news that they don’t like – whether it’s about COVID or election reforms and everything in between.
Facebook pawns off fact-checking to a left-leaning company masquerading as an objective source, which gives Facebook the cover to censor content.
And with the establishment and the Left still blaming Facebook for Donald Trump’s election, part of Zuckerberg’s penance seems to be ratcheting up unbelievable levels of censorship.
Facebook is essentially an enforcement arm of the establishment, censoring material based on political considerations that align with the political Left.
That was proven when emails between Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Dr. Anthony Fauci of the NIAID were released due to a FOIA request.
Counter-narrative COVID voices were suppressed—even if they shared factual data—if they could’ve possibly contributed to vaccine hesitancy.
BMJ responded with a scathing rebuke of both Facebook and Lead Stories:
From November 10, readers began reporting a variety of problems when trying to share our article. Some reported being unable to share it. Many others reported having their posts flagged with a warning about “Missing context … Independent fact-checkers say this information could mislead people.” Those trying to post the article were informed by Facebook that people who repeatedly share “false information” might have their posts moved lower in Facebook’s News Feed. Group administrators where the article was shared received messages from Facebook informing them that such posts were “partly false.”
Readers were directed to a “fact check” performed by a Facebook contractor named Lead Stories.
We find the “fact check” performed by Lead Stories to be inaccurate, incompetent and irresponsible.
Lead Stories simply labeled the BMJ study a “hoax” without providing rebuttal arguments.
The fact-checker also classified BMJ as a “news blog” even though it has been around since 1840.
Neither Facebook nor Lead Stories responded to BMJ.
Social media companies are outsourcing their fact-checking to left-wing hack organizations that have no institutional credibility, all in the name of combating “misinformation.”
It turns out that the gatekeepers are the biggest purveyors of misinformation.
