We were all told in 2021 that it was a conspiracy theory that the Biden administration was working with social media companies to censor content. They told us that social media companies were private businesses creating their rules.
We discovered that the Biden Administration was working with social media companies to target persons they felt were hurting their narrative, which is unconstitutional.
The doors have been blown off regarding the collusion between the government and social media companies thanks to a lawsuit in Missouri and a report from The Intercept:
The work, much of which remains unknown to the American public, came into clearer view earlier this year when DHS announced a new “Disinformation Governance Board”: a panel designed to police misinformation (false information spread unintentionally), disinformation (false information spread intentionally), and malinformation (factual information shared, typically out of context, with harmful intent) that allegedly threatens U.S. interests. While the board was widely ridiculed, immediately scaled back, and then shut down within a few months, other initiatives are underway as DHS pivots to monitoring social media now that its original mandate — the war on terror — has been wound down.
Behind closed doors, and through pressure on private platforms, the U.S. government has used its power to try to shape online discourse. According to meeting minutes and other records appended to a lawsuit filed by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, a Republican who is also running for Senate, discussions have ranged from the scale and scope of government intervention in online discourse to the mechanics of streamlining takedown requests for false or intentionally misleading information.
One of the people involved in the cabal is former Press Secretary Jen Psaki, who tried to get out of a deposition. Unfortunately for her, a federal judge will not let her off the hook, and she is about to head to a deposition.
BREAKING: Federal judge DENIES Jen Psaki’s motion to quash subpoena for her deposition in Missouri v Biden, lawsuit aimed at revealing government collusion with Big Tech in violation of First Amendment.

Independent Journalist Alex Berenson also has a pending lawsuit against the government (he was one of the people targeted), and after this ruling, he must be licking his chops.
