The Biden White House Has Been Having "Conversations" With Corporate Neoliberal Shill Organization Fox About Their Coverage of Covid;
Hannity Tweets Out Pro-Vax Message

Your Fair and Balanced News Alterative, taking its marching orders directly from the most leftwing administration in American history.

By the way, this is a CNN article. CNN is writing this 1, to hurt Fox, and 2, to establish that it's somehow "okay" for the government to be pressuring corporations to in turn censor speech.

As if the corporate neoliberal organization Fox's blessing is all conservatives need to say, "Okay, I guess censorship is good then!"

There have been regular, high-level conversations between the White House and Fox News regarding their coverage of the pandemic and vaccines, a source familiar with the talks tells CNN.

News of the discussions comes as one of the network's stars, Sean Hannity, urged his audience to "please take Covid seriously" on Monday night.

The person who confirmed the conversations cautioned there has been no singular conversation that has played a role in Fox's coverage of Covid-19. Throughout the pandemic, officials have regularly reached out to Fox News about their Covid-19 coverage. While White House officials often reach out to television networks and other news outlets about their coronavirus coverage, but this outreach is notable given Fox News’ past coverage of the Covid-19 pandemic.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed on Tuesday that White House officials are in regular contact with Fox News.

While some hosts have talked up the positives of the vaccines and shared their own vaccination experiences, numerous others have trafficked in anti-vaccination rhetoric and encouraged guests to do the same.


And Hannity, who has previously downplayed the pandemic but has regularly been in favor of vaccines, said Monday night, "I can't say it enough. Enough people have died. We don’t need any more death. Research like crazy. Talk to your doctor, your doctors, medical professionals you trust based on your unique medical history.... Take it seriously."

Look at all these corporations bending to the US government's demands.

Why, as Good Little (Leftwing) Fake Libertarians, we have to defend corporations' sacred right to be bullied by the US government with threat of reprisal.

The White House has grown concerned in recent weeks over misinformation about Covid-19 vaccines being promoted in mass media, especially on social media. The pace of vaccinations has slowed and the Biden administration has pointed to misinformation as a major reason why.

US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy warned Thursday health misinformation is "a serious threat to public health," and the administration directly called out social media giant Facebook for not doing enough to stop the spread of false information on its platform.

I don't mind the message.

I do mind the corporate-government fusion entity controlling everyone's speech in direct defiance of the First Amendment.

Since the Biden-Occupied White House is currently spreading a panic about vaccine information, perhaps they should have a word with Noted Fellatrix Kamala Harris and various other Democrat operatives -- such as CNN reporters -- who claimed the vaccine was dangerous -- in order to tamp down enthusiasm for Trump, pre-election.

Meanwhile, the White House is also demanding information about users spreading "misinformation" about the virus from FaceBook - and the leftwing fascist media is shocked that FaceBook isn't obeying the government fast enough.
