Thanks to Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry's multi-state censorship lawsuit against the Biden administration, new files have been released that show the White House requesting that Facebook censor Fox News' Tucker Carlson for criticizing Covid-19 vaccines.
On April 14, 2021, Rob Flaherty, the White House Director of Digital Strategy, sent an email to a Facebook employee saying, "Since we've been on the phone - the top post about vaccines today is Tucker Carlson saying they don't work. Yesterday it was Tomi Lahren saying she won't take one."
The released Facebook emails are just one of many such revelations that have come out recently about the extent and depth of collusion between Biden's White House and tech companies in the attempt to suppress doubt and debate regarding the administration's covid policies and vaccine mandates.
The emails were obtained through a lawsuit Landry filed on behalf of Louisiana and Missouri against the Biden administration, alleging that it colluded with tech companies to suppress Americans' First Amendment rights.
According to the emails, Flaherty wrote, "The is exactly why I want to know what 'Reduction' actually looks like - if 'reduction' means 'pumping our most vaccine hesitant audience with Tucker Carlson saying it doesn't work,' then...I'm not sure it's reduction!"
The emails show that an employee promptly responded and reassured Flaherty that Facebook was "running this down."
In another email, Facebook told the White House that it would also censor Robert Kennedy, Jr. who has also been outspokenly skeptical of the vaccine.
The emails were released prior to the Twitter Files, which revealed that Pfizer and the Biden administration had used the same lobbyist to pressure Faceboook to censor 'misinformation' and doubt about the vaccines.
The lawsuit regarding the emails is currently working its way through the legal process in the District Court for the Western District of Louisiana.
