The non-profit America First Legal (AFL) has made available the fourth batch of disclosure on the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) Big Tech censorship. The documents revealed that Twitter set up a website for the government and stakeholders to submit posts that allegedly contained COVID-19 “misinformation.”
According to the nearly 600-page release, Twitter bigwigs used the gateway to track online posts and review them. They then invited Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officials to access the files.
“In recent months, millions of Americans have witnessed the peeling of the ‘misinformation’ onion. Beneath each layer of shocking details about a partnership between the federal government and Big Tech is yet another layer of connections, conspiracy, and collaboration between power centers that seek to suppress information from the American people,” Gene Hamilton, America First Legal vice-president and general counsel, said in a press release. “We are proud to play a leading role in fighting for the rights of all Americans and revealing this vital information to the American people.”
Documents showed that Twitter’s Public Policy Senior Manager Todd O’Boyle apparently enrolled CDC’s Digital Media Branch Chief Carol Crawford in the gateway when the latter sent an email titled “COVID Misinformation,” which contained links to various tweets regarding microchips and vaccine shedding in May 2021.
Crawford later told O’Boyle via email on September 2 that a CDC “Lab alert” concerning polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing had been “misinterpreted and was shared via social media.” She then noted the hashtag “pcrtest” for “monitoring.”
The CDC media chief also requested that representatives from the Census Bureau be permitted to report COVID-19 misinformation using the Twitter portal and inquired on May 24 whether “there would be any issues or complications stemming from flagging COVID misinformation on the portal using the existing census.gov accounts that have access.”
According to the AFL press release, the other sets of disclosures “contain more details regarding how the government censored information about the COVID-19 pandemic; built the evidentiary record showing that CDC specifically sent Facebook and Twitter-specific posts to take down, throttle, censor, or flag; and associated the CDC’s regulations on in-school mask mandates to “political polling by liberal dark money group The Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF).”
AFL’s first release of documents revealed the explicit collusion between the CDC and Big Tech to censor what the Biden Administration deemed “misinformation” and push covert COVID-19 propaganda. AFL’s second release built the evidentiary record showing that CDC specifically sent Facebook and Twitter-specific posts to take down, throttle, censor or flag. The third release revealed that the CDC’s mask guidance policies for school children were driven by political polling by KFF rather than science.

Second installment of “Twitter Files” reveals secret blacklists
The second installment of Twitter Files released on December 15 appeared to confirm that the social media platform played a significant role in censoring posts that go against the official COVID-19 narrative espoused by the government. The release of “Twitter Files” fulfills Musk’s promise to show how Twitter engaged in the suppression of free speech under the previous management.
The files were shared with two independent journalists, Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss. The first installment was released by Taibbi via Twitter on December 2 and covered details surrounding Twitter’s suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop scandal.
This second installment, meanwhile, revealed that Twitter employees put together their own blacklists to suppress and “shadow ban” the reach of certain accounts.
One of the blacklisted accounts was that of Stanford University Professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya’s, who argued that COVID lockdowns were incredibly detrimental to young children. His argument later turned out to be 100 percent correct.
Because Bhattacharya was included in the “Trends Blacklist,” the reach of his tweets was controlled and this essentially prevented him from ever trending.
This recent installment of “Twitter Files” also revealed that conservative talk show host Dan Bongino had been placed on a “Search Blacklist” and conservative activist Charlie Kirk had been placed on a “Do Not Amplify” blacklist.
According to reports, Twitter employees had a number of censorship labels they could press for each account. Bhattacharya’s account received the labels “Recent Abuse Strike” and “Trends Blacklist.” Bongino’s account received the labels “NSFW View,” “Strike Count,” “Notifications Spike” and “Search Blacklist.”
