'Spineless, Corrupt, Amoral F**kwits': Matt Taibbi Rips Mainstream Media Ignoring FTC's Demand For Twitter to Out Journos
The Censorship-Industrial-Complex Must Be Broken
On Thursday, two of those journalists testified before the subcommittee about what they found. To summarize very briefly the testimony of Matt Taibbi and Michael Shellenberger, they found that the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and other government agencies were having regular meetings with Twitter and other tech platforms to impose various degrees of control over the content, as well as the accounts, permitted on social media.
They also found that U.S. taxpayers have been funding a long list of non-governmental and academic organizations that monitored social media content and sent the tech companies bulk requests for takedowns and account bans.
And they found that this censorship, funded and coordinated by the U.S. government, sought the removal not only of false information, but also of true facts that were considered unhelpful, including truthful reports of COVID-19 vaccine injuries. You can read their report on what they are calling the "Censorship-Industrial Complex" on Twitter, or find their work on Substack.com.

- At all times herein mentioned, Defendant the Democratic National Committee (the "DNC"), the federal government and in particular, the Biden Administration, aided and abetted by the "mainstream media," colluded with and/or coerced social media companies, internet retailers and distributors, public school teacher unions and school board associations, including the private party defendants named and described herein, to suppress and censor disfavored speakers, viewpoints and content on social media platforms and/or barred them from the public square by falsely labeling content "dis-information," "misinformation," and "mal-information" (hereinafter the "Censorship Scheme").
- Plaintiffs allege that the DNC and the Biden Administration's "weaponized" federal agencies - including the Department of Justice ("DOJ"), Federal Bureau of Investigation ("FBI"), Center for Disease Control ("CDC"), Department of Homeland Security ("DHS"), Department of Health ("DOH"), Department of Education ("DOE"), State Department and Department of Defense ("DOD") - relying on public fear caused by the Covid 19 Pandemic, lockdowns and health concerns - unnecessarily closed public schools, shut down services from essential service providers and other private public businesses and threatened other adverse government action to coerce and direct the private-party defendants herein to do that which the Constitution prohibits the government from doing directly - namely, to censor and suppress lawfully protected speech and communications of disfavored (primarily conservative or Republican Party) speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms.
- The vast Censorship Scheme's tentacles have reached as far as the internet retailer defendants, including Apple, Inc. ("Apple") and Amazon, Inc. ("Amazon"), who refused and continue to refuse to distribute books, articles, movies, audios and other communications written or published by conservative or "disfavored" speakers under the direction of the federal government and the Biden Administration's Orwellian guise of "misinformation."
