Facebook Considers Ending Restrictions On COVID Misinformation
In this July 26, 2022 article for The Guardian, Alex Hern reports that Facebook is deciding on ending restrictions on COVID misinformation, two years after it first imposed such censorship.
According to the company, it will now request an “advisory opinion from the oversight board on whether Meta’s current measures to address Covid-19 misinformation under our harmful health misinformation policy continue to be appropriate or whether we should address this misinformation through other means, like labeling or demoting it either directly or through our third-party fact-checking program”.
Editor’s Note: Facebook says that the need to re-assess its censorship policy of alternative information on COVID is due to the “return to normal life”, we think that it is due to something completely different.
For one, the science behind what the network calls as “misinformation” is strengthening and the mainstream narrative peddled by the World Health Organization and its cohorts is eroding.
For example, it is becoming clear that the COVID “vaccines” are useless and dangerous [See German Government Admits 1 in 5,000 Get Severe Side Effects After COVID Shots, Paul Alexander: Data Shows COVID Vaccines Lead To Increased COVID Infection, Hospitalization, Deaths, Study Confirms Natural Immunity Offers Superior Protection Against Reinfection, Severe Disease Compared To COVID Vaccines, Study Confirms Natural Immunity Offers Superior Protection Against Reinfection, Severe Disease Compared To COVID Vaccines].
Second, The anomalies surrounding vaccine contracts are also getting revealed [see Uruguay Halts COVID Vaccination For Children Under 13, Judge Wants Government To Turn Over Pfizer Contracts For Review, Leaders of Baltic States Publish Joint Letter to EU Commission President to Renegotiate Vaccine Contracts, Pfizer Controls Health Policy of 110 Countries, CCH Challenges the Duterte Government to Make Public Its Contract with Pfizer, Pfizer Admits To Fraud In Court But Claims It’s Not Fraud Because The Government Was In On It].
Third, more and more health experts who were once supportive of the mainstream narrative are speaking out against the illogical policies of governments [see Scientists at FDA: US Public Health Officials, Not Following Science, Dr. Paul Offit On FDA Panel Approval To Reformulate COVID Shots: “It Felt Like The Fix Was In”, Top FDA virologists, WHO scientists: No credible evidence for COVID booster shots].
Last, but probably the most crucial reason for Facebook’s “change of heart” is that they are now losing revenue. Though current news blames the recent “economic situation”, we know better.
Over the past months, many freedom fighters have opted to move away from biased media and social media platforms that censor [see CNN+ shuts down barely a month since launch, CNN lost one million viewers since Trump left office, down nearly 50% in 24-54 age group, One million homes have stopped paying for BBC.
