‘THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE ANSWERS’: Court Orders Govt. to Hand Over Docs on Social Media Collusion

A federal judge has ordered press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and Dr. Anthony Fauci to produce any communications with social media companies about misinformation or the censorship of social media content within 21 days.

 The order is part of an ongoing lawsuit by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry —they suspect the government colluded with social media companies to censor speech.

From Newsmax:

The Department of Justice has said that turning over the documents would show internal communications, but Judge Terry Doughty rejected that argument in his ruling.

Last year the White House began a campaign to encourage Facebook and other social media giants to heighten the battle on misinformation about COVID-19 on their platforms, a move many conservatives regarded as an attempt at suppressing free speech, The Kansas City Star reported.

Schmitt’s office celebrated the court’s ruling, stating in a press release that “the American people deserve answers on how the federal government has colluded with social media companies to censor free speech on these major platforms. We will continue to fight to uncover more of this vast censorship enterprise.”

The Missouri and Louisiana attorney generals had already successfully obtained and released records demonstrating that officials from several federal agencies had made contact with social media companies to coordinate censorship, the Daily Caller reported.
