Facebook and Twitter Arbitrarily Order Trump to Delete “Misinformation”

first_imgFacebook and Twitter are censoring President Trump’s posts while allowing posts with similar content belonging to Elon Musk to remain on their platform.Facebook deleted the post in which the president claimed during an interview on “FOX and Friends” that children were “almost immune” to coronavirus saying it contained “harmful Covid misinformation.”Twitter followed by saying it had frozen a Trump campaign account until a tweet of the same clip from a FOX News interview was removed.A Facebook spokesperson said on Wednesday evening: “This video includes false claims that a group of people is immune from COVID-19 which is a violation of our policies around harmful COVID misinformation.”It was the first time the social giant had taken action to remove content posted by the president based on its coronavirus-misinformation policy, but not the first time it has penalized Mr Trump over content on his page.Later on Wednesday, Twitter said it had frozen the @TeamTrump account because it posted the same interview excerpt, which President Trump’s account shared.A Twitter spokesman said the @TeamTrump tweet “is in violation of the Twitter Rules on COVID-19 misinformation”.“The account owner will be required to remove the Tweet before they can Tweet again.”It later appeared to have been deleted.Children can catch and transmit the virus, but they run an extremely low risk of becoming ill from it.Older adults are far more likely to be seriously ill and die from complications.The largest study done so far, involving more than 55,000 hospital patients, found that only 0.8% were under the age of 19.But in March, Twitter said a tweet by entrepreneur Elon Musk suggesting children are “essentially immune” to coronavirus did not break its rules.Twitter’s policy also covers denial of expert guidance, and unofficial advice about ways to diagnose or treat the virus. But a tweet by Elon Musk suggesting children were “essentially immune” to coronavirus did not break the new rules, the company said.— Shayan Sardarizadeh (@Shayan86) April 1, 2020 WHAT DID THE PRESIDENT ACTUALLY SAY?Speaking by telephone to morning show Fox and Friends on Wednesday, Mr Trump argued it was time for all schools nationwide to reopen.He said: “If you look at children, children are almost – and I would almost say definitely – almost immune from this disease.“So few, they’ve got stronger, hard to believe, I don’t know how you feel about it, but they’ve got much stronger immune systems than we do somehow for this.“And they don’t have a problem, they just don’t have a problem.”Twitter last month temporarily suspended Mr Trump’s son, Donald Jr, for sharing a clip it said promoted “misinformation” about coronavirus and hydroxychloroquine while allowing Elon Musk’s post to stand.Maybe worth considering chloroquine for C19— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 16, 2020last_img read more

Rams’ Clay Matthews says he needs to prove himself to new team, new fans

first_img Sean McVay says Rams’ Super Bowl loss on his mind ‘every minute’ The veteran linebacker is entering his 11th season after he spent the past decade with the Packers. He agreed to a two-year deal with Los Angeles, worth as much as $16.75 million as a free agent this offseason.Matthews’ efficiency decreased last year after recording a career-low 3 1/2 sacks along with 43 total tackles in 16 games for Green Bay.However, he enters the upcoming season with a new mindset on a team he was looking forward to joining.”(It) definitely feels like this is the way (my career) should continue,” Matthews said. “When it was known that things weren’t going to work out in Green Bay, I told my agent that one of the teams I wanted to look at was the Rams. Fortunately, we were able to make it happen.”The Rams seem just as excited to have Matthews as they continue to add to their already strong defensive unit.Los Angeles is hoping for another successful season after making it all the way to the Super Bowl in Sean McVay’s second year as head coach.”Anybody that’s played as much as he has and had that amount of success — being in a big-time organization and being a world champion — that’s always someone you can learn from,” McVay said. “He’s a guy that, whether it’s with myself or with his teammates, he’s come in and he’s worked the right way.” Rams extend coach Sean McVay, GM Les Snead through 2023 season “One of the things you don’t really understand (until it happens) is that when you go to a new team, you have to prove yourself all over again,” Matthews said Monday, via “That’s the spirit of football — the competition.”So to come out here with a new coaching staff and new players and media and fans, you have to prove yourself.” Related News Clay Matthews is fitting into his role with the Rams, and the six-time Pro Bowl player isn’t taking it lightly.Matthews, who grew up just north of Los Angeles, is excited to play in California again after spending four years at USC. But he knows he’ll still have to prove himself to his new team and the fans despite his accomplished resume. Eric Weddle: Rams’ cornerbacks are ‘best I’ve ever played with’ McVay has already started to keep an eye on Matthews’ playing time as he sat out of practice to start the week. Aaron Donald, Michael Brockers, Aqib Talib, Eric Weddle and Andrew Whitworth also rested in an effort to bank energy for a long playoff run. “When you see these guys (at practice) that have worked and produced at such a high level, you see why they’ve been able to do it,” McVay said. “That’s the same with Clay. He’s done a great job so far and we’re counting on big things from Clay Matthews.”last_img read more
