With conservatives warning of Big Tech firms like Twitter, Facebook and others cracking down their free speech, investigative journalist Sara Carter spoke to Fox News Digital at CPAC about the divide and why it is so important that Congress act to preserve the First Amendment.

Big Tech has allowed Russia to launch a viral campaign in the midst of the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine.Carter added that actual criminal conduct is rightly restricted and should continue to be.

“It’s crazy. But that’s why CPAC-2022’s [theme] is ‘Awake Not Woke’, because people are starting to wake up and realize that these behemoth social media giants like Twitter, like Facebook” are censoring otherwise free speech, she said.

Carter noted that there has been a rise in alternative social media platforms of late – which include Rumble, Parler, and Donald Trump’s Truth Social – and that such competition is a good thing.

“I’m not saying we should censor Facebook. I’m not saying we should shut down Twitter. I’m saying that they need to do a better job at giving people a voice, and we’re not dumb. We can see what the truth is. We don’t need people babysitting us on the truth,” she said.

Internal docs show Amazon censored books on vaccinations due to pressure from Biden White House

Vaccine

Recently released internal Amazon emails reveal the company caved to pressure from the Biden White House to suppress available vaccine information.

Provided to the House Judiciary Committee, the emails light on the extent of the Biden White House’s influence over the retail giant regarding vaccine-related content. The emails disclose a concerning narrative of pressure from government officials to suppress information deemed unfavorable to their agenda.

Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio took to Twitter to disclose the findings, stating that the emails reveal direct pressure from the White House on Amazon to censor books expressing views contrary to those endorsed by the administration. One email, albeit redacted, explicitly poses the question of whether the administration requested the removal of certain books, to which the answer was affirmative.

National Review highlights the successful efforts of the Biden administration in persuading Amazon to limit the visibility of titles skeptical of vaccine efficacy. White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, Andrew Slavitt, expressed concerns about Amazon’s role in propagating what he termed as “misinformation” regarding vaccines. His emails illustrate a push for action to address what he perceived as a proliferation of dissenting views.

In response to Slavitt’s inquiries, Amazon initially hesitated to take overt action, fearing backlash from conservative media outlets. The company’s internal deliberations reflect a concern for public perception and the potential amplification of the issue if intervention were too conspicuous.

Despite initially refraining from manual intervention, Amazon eventually succumbed to pressure, engaging in discussions with White House officials. The company’s internal documents reveal deliberations on whether the administration sought outright book bans or alterations to search results. Amazon’s stance, as expressed in their meeting with the White House, emphasized the provision of diverse viewpoints and the distinction between online retail and social media platforms.
