US: When a reporter asked President  Biden what his message was to “platforms like Facebook” on the subject of “COVID misinformation,” the President said, “They’re killing people. The only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated, and they’re killing people.” White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted last Thursday that the White House is “flagging problematic posts” for Facebook to censor and added that the Biden administration is “in regular touch” with the platform to ensure that only “correct narratives” are promoted. She said, “There are about 12 people who are producing 65 percent of anti-vaccine misinformation on social media platforms.” Since the beginning of the public health crisis, Facebook says it has removed over 18-million instances of “COVID-19 misinformation” but, apparently, that is not enough.Missouri Senator Josh Hawley warned that big tech is “acting like arms of the government” after the White House admitted it is asking Facebook to censor anyone who posts content it deems to be “misinformation”. He said that, if the companies are taking direction from the federal government, openly coordinating censorship with them, and Big Tech carries out those instructions, then they should be regulated like public utilities. The latest development with Facebook comes on the heels of reports that the White House is trying the same thing with Twitter, and planning to work directly with cellphone network providers to ‘fact check’ private SMS messages if they contain “misinformation about vaccines.” — GEG

President Biden on Friday accused Facebook of “killing people,” just after White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration is “in regular touch” with the platform to ensure correct “narratives” are promoted — elaborating on her Thursday admission that the White House is “flagging problematic posts” to censor.

Biden was asked about his message for platforms like Facebook as he departed the White House on Friday afternoon for a weekend trip to Camp David.

“They’re killing people. The only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated. And they’re killing people,” Biden said.

At her daily press briefing, Psaki told reporters that the White House is “regularly” coordinating with Facebook and other social media giants on the “latest narratives dangerous to public health” that the administration thinks should be censored.

“We are regularly making sure social media platforms are aware of the latest narratives dangerous to public health that we and many other Americans are seeing across all of the social and traditional media,” Psaki said.
