More allegations

“More allegations,” Monterey Herald – June 14, 2023

There is another example of the U.S. government violating the First Amendment. Mark Zuckerberg revealed that government-funded science establishments asked Facebook to censor COVID-19 alleged misinformation.

In a recent episode of the “Lex Fridman Podcast,” Zuckerberg said that these institutes “asked for a bunch of things to be censored that, in retrospect, ended up being more debatable or true.” He also declared that these examples of censorship hurt their credibility with the public and “undermines trust.”

In an earlier interview with CBS anchor Gayle King, Zuckerberg revealed that his platform had taken down at least 18 million posts that were judged as false information about Covid-19.

Where are the indictments against the government censors, or has the First Amendment now been declared null and void?
