White House Lobbied Facebook to Censor Tucker Carlson Over Skepticism Towards COVID-19 Vaccine

By Paul Joseph Watson | Summit News | January 9, 2023

Internal communications obtained by Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry show that the White House lobbied Facebook to censor Tucker Carlson and others for expressing skepticism about the COVID-19 vaccine.

White House Director of Digital Strategy Rob Flaherty wrote an email to an unnamed Facebook employee on April 14, 2021 complaining about posts that were negative towards the vaccine appearing prominently on Facebook.

“Since we’ve been on the phone – the top post about vaccines today is [T]ucker Carlson saying they don’t work. Yesterday it was Tomi Lehren [sic] saying she won’t take one,” the email stated.

“This is exactly why I want to know what ‘Reduction’ actually looks like – if ‘reduction’ means ‘pumping our most vaccine hesitant audience with [T]ucker Carlson saying it doesn’t work’ then… I’m not sure it’s reduction!” Flaherty added.

This is clearly related to the Biden White House’s frustration that Facebook wasn’t rigging its algorithm enough to ensure that such posts were censored from being seen by a large enough majority of Facebook users.

The Facebook staffer responded to the email by assuring Flaherty that the company was “running this down,” meaning acquiescing to the censorship demand.

The communication was unearthed in response to a lawsuit filed by Landry and Missouri’s AG Eric Schmitt seeking to determine whether the Biden administration coerced social media networks to censor content related to the 2020 presidential election and COVID-19.

The files once again prove that Big Tech censorship was carried out at the behest of the government, meaning it was a direct violation of the First Amendment.

As part of discovery, other communications also show Flaherty expressing his frustration with Facebook for not censoring on a broad enough scale.

“Really couldn’t care less about products unless they’ve having measurable impact,” Flaherty raged.

“I still don’t have a good, empirical answer on how effective you’ve been at reducing the spread of vaccine-skeptical content and misinformation to vaccine fence sitters in the now-folded ‘lockdown,’” he added.

The White House demanded “assurances” that Facebook wasn’t going to dilute its censorship policies.

Flaherty also warned Google that such concerns were shared by “the highest (and I mean highest) levels of the WH [White House],” and demanded that the company, which owns YouTube, get a “handle on vaccine hesitancy generally” and resolve to work “toward making the problem better.”

  1. If people are being skeptical about forced medication that was rushed without testing into production in response to a “fear generated” and planned epidemic, they have not only the God given right to feel skeptical and to express it, but also the duty to do so, particularly when the agencies established for the public’s protection have utterly failed and are completely corrupted.

    Now here is a question for everyone. Why do people believe that they have to participate in Facebook, Twitter, or any other social medium, when these media are also completely corrupted and helping to bring about totalitarian control over humanity? Just close your accounts everybody, and communicate only with those whom you know and trust and let Zuckerberg et all learn a lesson via the pocket book. But to continue to patronize such criminals while they continue to rob you of your God given rights is insanity, or at best a serious case of “Stockholm syndrome”. Or are you all so brain washed that you cannot see the forest for the trees?

    • Facebook has been and can be a valuable communication site for people all over the World, but, now, the arrogance of “Red Sea Pedestrian” Mark Zukerberg, who is happy to Ban ANYONE who doesn’t agree with HIS view of things is beyond ridiculous.

      Freedom of speech is a basic human right, but, NOT, if Zukerberg, and his tribe get their way.

      IF he can ban us….WE can ban him….. TO HELL WITH YOU Zook…..

      • The social media “can” be, and started being valuable communication media until they got too big for their britches. With success and extreme wealth comes arrogance, the feeling and belief that you are invincible and that others owe you some special consideration and servitude, and that now you have the right and responsibility, even though unelected, to determine what should happen to the rest of the world. Alleged “climate change” is an area where there has been no real discussion or examination of opposing scientific points of view, rather there has been another rush like the covid movement to suppress truth and motivate people to support the belief and resulting world changes. But when you start to believe that you have the right to silence everyone with whom you disagree, then you no longer belong in that position of power and need to step down or be de-throned by a simple mass exodus from your platform. Having never participated in social media, I cannot understand at all what it is that I have missed in life and why others are so hell bent on licking the boots of such atheist and totalitarian tyrants. If sitting on thumb tacks hurts…then get up off of them.
