Biden backs down after Facebook trashes him over misinfirmation accusations

President Joe Biden and his administration are cracking down on people they disagree with. However, the pushback has caused him to back down on at least one claim.

Biden charged that Facebook was “killing people” with COVID-19 misinformation on its platform in a statement Friday, the Daily Caller reported. However, he almost immediately collapsed and was forced to walk it back by Monday after the company refuted his accusation

“They’re killing people,” Biden had initially claimed. “I mean, they’re really – Look, the only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated. And they’re killing people.”

The president made these statements after news broke that the administration was actively working with social media platforms to silence what they classified as misinformation on COVID-19. He took direct aim at Facebook, but the company wouldn’t stand for it.

“At a time when COVID-19 cases are rising in America, the Biden administration has chosen to blame a handful of American social media companies,”  Guy Rosen, VP of Integrity, called Biden out for that in a blog post Saturday. “While social media plays an important role in society, it is clear that we need a whole of society approach to end this pandemic. And facts — not allegations — should help inform that effort,” he wrote.

“The fact is that vaccine acceptance among Facebook users in the US has increased. These and other facts tell a very different story to the one promoted by the administration in recent days,” Rosen said.

“The data shows that 85% of Facebook users in the US have been or want to be vaccinated against COVID-19,” he went on to point out. “President Biden’s goal was for 70% of Americans to be vaccinated by July 4. Facebook is not the reason this goal was missed.”

After this strong statement was released, Biden demurred from his original statement when speaking to reporters Monday. “Facebook isn’t killing people,” he said, contradicting his original claim. “These 12 people are out there giving misinformation, anyone listening to it is getting hurt by it. It’s killing people. It’s bad information,” Biden said.

By now, most Americans who wanted the vaccine have gotten it, but the administration is having a hard time reaching those who are hesitant. Rather than appealing to and quelling their legitimate concerns, the administration just wants to silence any opposing viewpoint.

If your businesses were so damn good. Why are you advertising on a “FREE MEDIA?” Can’t afford a few bucks to advertise? Then where else are you full of it?
