TWITTER CENSORS WHITE HOUSE COVID EXPERT—Tech Platform Doesn’t Agree With Dr. Scott Atlas’s View On Masks


by Victoria Taft, PJ Media:

Dateline: Dystopia. In the latest chapter of a social media platform using its censorship prerogatives to silence viewpoints the tech moguls don’t like, Twitter has just silenced White House Coronavirus Task Force member, Dr. Scott Atlas.

Twitter removed a tweet by the medical expert because it violated its policy against misleading information about the pandemic. Says who? And compared to what? What happened to that whole “listen to the science” meme we’ve been constantly browbeaten with? Isn’t the expert on the coronavirus task force someone who knows, I don’t know, something about the coronavirus pandemic?


But no.

The Federalist reports that Atlas’s tweet offended the sensibilities of Twitter executives and “not only had his tweets removed, he was banned from tweeting until he deleted the tweets that Twitter for unclear reasons objects to.”

Here’s what he said on Twitter in two tweets. Behold the “treachery.”

Masks work? NO. LA, Miami, Hawaii, Alabama, France, Philippnes [sic], UK, Spain, Israel. WHO: “widesprd use use not supported.” + many harms; Henegen, Oxf, CEBM,” despite decades consider…

That means the real policy is @realdonaldtrump guideline: use masks for their intended purpose – when close to others, especially hi risk. Otherwise social distance. No widespread mandates. #CommonSense

Atlas gave The Federalist all of his scientific citations. One of the links, one to the CDC, gave a 404 error. It’s unclear if the Centers for Disease Control link was a bad link or whether the CDC killed it.

Some on Twitter were looking for a little consistency from the “doctors” at Twitter.
