There are so many places to go with this. If you listen, the reporter asking Karine Jean-Pierre about Twitter is concerned about it becoming “a vector of misinformation.” Of course, the White House is very concerned about disinformation on Twitter, such as the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story that got the Post frozen out of its account for weeks for spreading Russian disinformation, or, in the words of our short-lived Minister of Truth, “a fairy tale about a laptop repair shop.” Under Twitter’s former management, you couldn’t share the story or link to it. So whenever this White House brings up disinformation, just remember how they used that as an excuse to suppress a story that was damaging to Joe Biden’s campaign.
Also, note how Jean-Pierre immediately pivots to hate speech, which was not the reporter’s question.

They’re just upset they can’t control the narrative

The biggest “misinformation” suppressed on social media over the last two years all turned out, in fact, to be true. When will this administration be forced to answer for that and be held accountable?
