Facebook Shows Where it Stands on Free Speech By Mrs Vera West
It was only a matter of time, given all of the other censorship adventures, but now Facebook turns its attention to censoring anti-vaxx comments. Not a stone must be left unturned:
“Facebook is considering taking action against harmful and misleading content posted by 'anti-vaccination' activists on the social network. Democrat US Congressman Adam Schiff had written to Facebook, as well as Google, asking them to address the issue of 'anti-vaxx' content on the platform. In its response to Schiff, Facebook wrote that it is looking into removing misinforming content about vaccinations from recommendations to its users and to 'demote' it in searches on its platform. In a letter to t Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google's CEO Sundar Pichai, Schiff wrote: 'As a Member of Congress who is deeply concerned about declining vaccination rates, I am requesting additional information on the steps that you currently take to provide medically accurate information on vaccinations to your users, and to encourage you to consider additional steps you can take to address this growing problem. In a statement released in response to Schiff, Facebook said it is 'exploring additional measures to best combat the problem,' according to Bloomberg.”
Clearly big pharma and Big Tech join hands and sing around the same money trough. There is no parallel concerns about greater health issues, such as the fast foods that kill people and cost billions, but a belief that some kiddies, who presumably should have immunity, will catch some bugs from unvaccinated kids, raises the blood pressure of the techno-medical elites to unheard of levels.
