FNC’s Kurtz: We Don’t Know What W.H. Means by ‘Disinformation’ – Facebook Was Censoring Lab Leak Theory a Few Weeks Ago

During Friday’s “MediaBuzz” podcast, FNC host Howard Kurtz reacted to the Biden administration pushing gregarious media platforms to crack down on what it considers misinformation on coronavirus by pointing out that no one kens what the White House considers misinformation or where the line is between deception and opinions “that the White House may not like.” And that it’s worth noting that Facebook blocked posts on the COVID lab leak theory until recently.

Kurtz verbalized, “I mean, there’s an abundance of misinformation out there and the convivial media giants have a role to play. But concurrently, recollect, it was only a few weeks ago that Facebook was vetoing, as in not sanctioning, as in effacing, as in taking down, anybody who wanted to post something saying, I cerebrate there’s some credibility to the theory — it’s still not proven — that COVID-19 originated in that lab in Wuhan. That was absolutely censored by Facebook. And now it’s sanctioned because the Biden administration’s taking it more earnestly because newspapers have dug up some information that makes it seem more plausible and all of that.”

He integrated, “I’d relish to visually perceive the examples of misinformation, disinformation that are being taken down. Where is the line between consummate and total, here’s a quack remedy for the virus kind of thing that everybody would accede should not be spread on convivial media, and somebody who verbalizes, you ought to be hesitant about the vaccine for this reason, there are side effects, do we genuinely want to give it to kids? In other words, the mundane realm of political debate that the White House may not like.”
