Michael Shellenberger posted this email from Facebook to Andrew Slavitt, Senior Adviser, Pandemic Response Team at the White House (March 21, 2021).
Note the sentence that says:
“We have been focused on reducing the virality of content discouraging vaccines that does not contain actionable misinformation. This is often-true content….We’ll remove these Groups, Pages, and Accounts when they are disproportionately promoting this sensationalized content.”Facebook to Andrew Slavitt, Senior Adviser, Pandemic Response Team at the White House (March 21, 2021)
The bottom line: Facebook censored TRUTH that the White House just didn’t like. If you said it, and it was “framed as sensation, alarmist or shocking,” and it was “disproportionately” promoted…then you might have stopped someone from getting the Covid vaccine. That was the reason for censoring you.
Now think about the consequences of this action.
I remain censored from Twitter and LinkedIn.
