Government EXPOSED For Censorship Inside Google And Facebook

Matt Taibbi, one of the main reporters of the Twitter files recently released, took to the air to say that the federal government was also trying to censor on Google and Facebook.

On Fox News Channel's "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Taibbi stated that the files have indicated that the government was also trying to sway speech on Facebook and Google.

Tucker Carlson said, "In relative terms, Twitter is a smaller player. You have Facebook and Google that dwarf it in size."

Federal Government EXPOSED For Censorship

"We’ve got to assume that those two companies are as penetrated as Twitter has been, don’t we?" Tucker asked.

Taibbi answered, "Yes, and there’s evidence for that."

"Certainly, we’ve seen that they have what they called weekly or monthly industry meetings with the DHS and the FBI. And those included a number of companies, including Facebook, in some cases, Wikipedia, Pinterest, there were a whole series of companies included in these communications," Taibbi continued.

"How deep the penetration goes in those other companies, I can’t say, but I do know that they had very close communications," Taibbi added.

"And in Twitter’s case, the number of requests that came in was really overwhelming," Taibbi said.

"Your previous guest, Michael Shellenberger, talked about how they were paid $3 million by the FBI. They were underpaid. They were doing so much work for the government in terms of reviewing these documents that they should have been compensated a lot more for their work," Taibbi concluded.

It really is disturbing how much involvement the government has in controlling what Americans are allowed to say and see on social media platforms.
