FBI Said it ‘Routinely’ Works with Social Media Companies to Censor ‘Threat Info’: Report

Collusion between government and Big Tech goes deeper than Joe Biden’s incompetence. The FBI reportedly responded to the revelation it pressured Facebook to censor during the 2020 election by saying that the agency “routinely” works with social media companies to target “potential threat information.”

The FBI “cannot ask, or direct, companies to take action on information received,” but does coordinate with “social media providers” to moderate content, according to an Aug. 26 FBI statement reported by Reclaim The Net.

This is the result of multiple attempts by different arms within the Biden Administration to intensify censorship in the lead up to 2022 Midterm elections.

The FBI claimed, according to Reclaim The Net, it “routinely notifies U.S. private sector entities, including social media providers, of potential threat information, so that they can decide how to better defend against threats.” 

What number of companies does the federal government work with in order to suppress free expression?

The FBI also asserted it “has provided companies with foreign threat indicators to help them protect their platforms and customers from abuse by foreign malign influence actors,” Reclaim The Net wrote.  

It’s hard to believe that the FBI is seriously addressing “foreign threat indicators” after 51 former intelligence officials wrote a letter in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election dismissing the now verified Hunter Biden laptop scandal as Russian disinformation.

The White House  launched a “task force”  in June to target alleged “disinformation.” Missouri and Louisiana filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration in May for colluding with Big Tech to censor online.

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta (Facebook), appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience August 25. When Rogan asked Zuckerberg about how Facebook addresses supposed “misinformation,” including so-called “misinformation” around the 2020 Hunter Biden laptop scandal, Zuckerberg said the FBI approached his company.

“I mean, basically the background here is the FBI, I think, basically came to us, some folks on our team, and was like, ‘Hey, um, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert,’” Zuckerberg said. “‘There was—we thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on notice that, basically, there’s about to be some kind of dump of, of—um, uh—that’s similar to that. So just be vigilant.’”

Big Tech covered up the Biden scandal before the 2020 election. This was an action that the Media Research Center found helped Big Media & Big Tech win the 2020 election for President Joe Biden.

Meta (Facebook) claimed that Reclaim The Net did not specify that the FBI had told the company to stop censoring the Hunter Biden affair. “The FBI shared general warnings about foreign interference—nothing specific about Hunter Biden,” the statement said, according to Reclaim The Net. Rogan asked Zuckerberg if the FBI told Facebook to stop publishing the Hunter Biden laptop story. Zuckerberg answered the question evasively.
