New ‘Twitter Files’ show gov’t-backed Stanford initiative told Big Tech to censor ‘true’ info about COVID jabs


    by Jack Bingham, LifeSite News:

    The latest Twitter Files show that a Stanford-led initiative told social media companies to suppress ‘true stories’ under the guise of misinformation, such as real instances of ‘people experiencing blood clots after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine.’

    The nineteenth “Twitter Files” installment has revealed that a Stanford University initiative routinely told social media companies to suppress posts containing “[t]rue content which might promote vaccine hesitancy.”

    According to the latest installment of files posted to Twitter on Friday by journalist Matt Taibbi, The Virality Project, a Stanford University initiative launched in May 2020 that receives federal funding by the Department of Defense and the National Science Foundation, instructed Big Tech social media platforms such as Twitter and TikTok to take action against admittedly “true” posts regarding the experimental COVID-19 vaccines as part of its fight against “disinformation.”

    In the internal communications posted by Taibbi, the Stanford-led project flagged “True content which might promote vaccine hesitancy,” including “stories of true vaccine side effects,” as content that needed to be combatted through censorship.

    In another communication between the project and high-ranking Twitter employees Yoel Roth and Brian Clarke, the Stanford researchers explained that some of these “true posts which could fuel hesitancy” included “individual countries banning certain vaccines” and “celebrity deaths after vaccine.”

    The Vitality Project also determined that posts that were critical of “vaccine passports” were “misinformation,” justifying the classification by saying that those who oppose discrimination based on vaccine status “have driven a larger anti-vaccination narrative about the loss of rights and freedoms.”
