News Brief – Feb 9, 2021
Make no mistake: big tech really is a many-headed beast seemingly intent on furthering the aims of the New World Order.
As if in confirmation, social media giant Facebook has announced that it will effectively ban what its “fact-checkers” deem to be false or misleading claims about Covid-19 and vaccines.
Meanwhile, the company has also announced that it will launch a global campaign to help build “build trust” in the Covid vaccines. This will involve Facebook giving advertising worth $120 million to health ministries, NGOs and UN agencies to enable Facebook users “find where and when they can get vaccinated”.
Along with a statement announcing its celebration of Black History Month, Facebook’s Integrity VP Guy Rosen also declared:
Removing More False Claims About COVID-19 and Vaccines
Today, we are expanding our efforts to remove false claims on Facebook and Instagram about COVID-19, COVID-19 vaccines and vaccines in general during the pandemic. Since December, we’ve removed false claims about COVID-19 vaccines that have been debunked by public health experts. Today, following consultations with leading health organizations, including the World Health Organization (WHO), we are expanding the list of false claims we will remove to include additional debunked claims about the coronavirus and vaccines. This includes claims such as:
- COVID-19 is man-made or manufactured
- Vaccines are not effective at preventing the disease they are meant to protect against
- It’s safer to get the disease than to get the vaccine
- Vaccines are toxic, dangerous or cause autism
No matter how you look at it, this all amounts to censorship.
Unfortunately this is no becoming a matter of routine for Facebook, as a few recent examples show:
So Facebook censorship is nothing new. What is new however, is the way it specifically targets those who question in anyway the official World Health Organisation guidelines on Covid-19.
No matter that many of those who have voiced doubts about those guidelines are doctors and medical experts themselves. If the big tech giants have their way you are not going to hear any voice that questions the official policy on Covid-19.
