More censorship pressure.

During the COVID-19 update on Thursday, President Joe Biden called on social media and media outlets to “deal” with Covid “misinformation and disinformation.” This comes months after the White House said it was be flagging misinformation about the pandemic on behalf of social media companies, raising First Amendment violation questions.

“There are others sitting on the sidelines, and worse, standing in the way,” the president said.

Biden added: “I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets — please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that’s on your shows. It has to stop. Covid-19 is one of the most formidable enemies America’s ever faced. We’ve got to work together, not against each other.”
