The Department of Homeland Security worked with a Stanford University organization to censor even true information around the 2020 election.
This comes from a report from the House Judiciary Committee. The committee says that the federal government worked with social media companies “to censor true information, jokes, and political opinions.”
“This pressure was largely directed in a way that benefitted one side of the political aisle: true information posted by Republicans and conservatives was labeled as ‘misinformation’ while false information posted by Democrats and liberals was largely unreported and untouched by the censors. The pseudoscience of disinformation is now—and has always been—nothing more than a political ruse most frequently targeted at communities and individuals holding views contrary to the prevailing narratives.”
The government called this “switchboarding,” meaning they were trying to switch certain information and people on and off. Needless to say, this was done with taxpayer dollars.
