Accuracy in Media

The Biden White House wasn’t just concerned about purported COVID-19 misinformation when in its first year it cajoled and argued with tech platforms to censor, throttle and label content — even in private messaging apps.

It was alarming that people might believe a child told First Lady Jill Biden to “shut the f*** up” — or simply enjoy the alteration of a C-SPAN clip.

The communications between federal officials and platforms are the latest revealed in discovery in the First Amendment lawsuit against the feds by Louisiana and Missouri attorneys general and the New Civil Liberties Alliance, which is representing censored social media users including epidemiologists Martin Kulldorff and Jay Bhattacharya.

NCLA attorney Jenin Younes and her client Aaron Kheriaty, fired by the University of California Davis for refusing COVID vaccination based on natural immunity, shared some of the documents in a Wall Street Journal op-ed Sunday night.
