The COVID pandemic unleashed Big Tech censors in a big way. Day after day, a handful of 20-something Silicon Valley leftists tweaked their algorithms to block, demonetize, and de-platform anyone who dared say anything that wasn’t in sync with government talking points, on the grounds that such “misinformation” posed a serious threat to public health.

Of course, the disease itself proved this campaign to be pure folly. COVID has officially claimed more than half a million lives in the U.S. How many would have died had Big Tech not decided to act like Big Brother? Our guess is, half a million.

So now that COVID is fading from the public’s list of concerns, we can all go back to normal, and social media platforms will once again live up to their promise of being the online public square, open for the free exchange of ideas. Right?

 

Not. Bloody. Likely.

Already, Big Tech is sharpening its algorithms to go after the next target – imposing speech codes regarding “climate science.”

A new report from a United Nations global warming “working group” complains that “misinformation” spread on social media poses a dire threat to humans because it’s contributing to “delayed action.”:snip:
