Biden Upset Twitter Censorship Rules Will No Longer Benefit Him?

November 6th, 2022 2:16 PM

At a campaign event Friday, President Joe Biden complained about upcoming changes to Twitter’s censorship rules.

It seems the president is not happy that Musk plans to implement the platform’s content moderation rules fairly. 

Politico reported that Biden said that Twitter is “an outfit that spews lies all across the world.”

Last week, NewsBusters reported Musk’s declaration that Twitter’s new content moderation team would consist of “widely diverse” viewpoints. 

“Twitter will be forming a content moderation council with widely diverse viewpoints,” Musk tweeted. “No major content decisions or account reinstatements will happen before that council convenes.”

Changes to the platform’s content moderation rules are long overdue.

During the 2020 presidential election, the rules overwhelmingly benefited Biden and other Democrats who ran for election.

In April, MRC Free Speech America published its report of 646 cases in its CensorTrack database of pro-Biden censorship between March 10, 2020, and March 10, 2022.

Additionally, MRC also found that Big Tech’s censorship of New York Post stories covering the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop helped sway the 2020 presidential election for the president.

Biden could also be concerned that the extent of the administration’s reported collusion with Big Tech social media platforms could soon become public.

NewsBusters reported that a federal court ordered the depositions of key officials in the Biden administration in a lawsuit that alleges Facebook and Twitter censored certain content about COVID-19 to prevent the spread of “misinformation.”

In a press release last month, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said the depositions of Biden officials will “force these officials to come clean to the American people.”

“After finding documentation of a collusive relationship between the Biden Administration and social media companies to censor free speech, we immediately filed a motion to get these officials under oath,” he said. “It is high time we shine a light on this censorship enterprise and force these officials to come clean to the American people, and this ruling will allow us to do just that. We’ll keep pressing for the truth.”

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci and former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki are among the officials to be deposed.
