White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was grilled during Friday’s press briefing over her admission that the Biden administration is pushing social media companies to censor what they deem is “misinformation.”
Psaki downplayed the notion that people care more about the government spying on them than they care about people dying from COVID-19.
“The big concern though, I think for a lot of people on Facebook, is that now this is big brother watching you,” a reporter said to Psaki.
“They’re more concerned about that than people dying across the country because of a pandemic where misinformation is traveling on social media platforms?” Psaki responded. “That feels unlikely to me, if you have the data to back that up. I’m happy to discuss it.”
“And about things that are on Facebook, I looked this morning, there are videos of Dr. Fauci from 2020 before anybody had a vaccine, and he’s out there saying there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask,”
