‘Censorship industrial complex’ – Latest Twitter Files dump reveals ‘incestuous self-appointed truth squad’ involving, NGOs, govt., media
By JD Heyes // Mar 15, 2023

The latest dump of the so-called "Twitter Files" was once again ignored by the legacy corporate media and the Biden regime because it further revealed the very real collusion between public-private organizations, government agencies, and the media itself to censor conservatives and others who diverge from the 'acceptable' assigned narratives of the day.

Matt Taibbi tweeted the new files last week in which he discussed what he referred to as the "Censorship-Industrial Complex." He described an "incestuous self-appointed truth squad" consisting of Twitter, government agencies, establishment media, and non-profit organizations, all of which share an ideological alignment in their efforts to censor information, according to The Post Millennial.

Twitter CEO Elon Musk called the new revelations "concerning" on the platform.

Taibbi highlighted an internal document from the Stanford Internet Observatory's Election Integrity Partnership, which he described as "the ultimate example of the absolute fusion of state, corporate, and civil society organizations." The document discussed how "true content" that could "promote vaccine hesitancy," such as stories about actual vaccine side effects, could be classified as "malinformation" instead of mis or disinformation.

The latest set of the Twitter Files was released on the same day as a congressional hearing focused on the same topic during which Taibbi and others who have also tweeted out their versions of the files testified. The files consist of a series of reports that reveal internal records at Twitter related to the company's censorship efforts, particularly regarding Covid-related content, and the collusion between Twitter and government agencies in achieving these goals, the outlet noted further.

During the hearing, Democratic lawmakers attempted to goad Taibbi and the others into committing a cardinal sin for journalists: Revealing who their source or sources were for the files.

In Thursday's batch of the Twitter Files, Taibbi stated that previous installments "focused on the company, which at times acted like a power above government" or "more like a partner to government." Taibbi also shared a screenshot of FBI Supervisory Special Agent Elvis Chan sending Twitter a list of accounts that the FBI believed violated their terms of service.

Taibbi provided details in the latest batch of the Twitter Files, stating that many reports "didn't even assert misinformation" and that a list of YouTube videos were flagged for "anti-Ukraine narratives."

Twitter received numerous requests for censorship from non-governmental organizations, including non-profit organizations, Taibbi noted.

"The National Endowment for Democracy, the Atlantic Council’s DFRLab, and Hamilton 68’s creator, the Alliance for Securing Democracy," were all part of the so-called Censorship-Industrial Complex.

Taibbi noted further that the Censorship-Industrial Complex had its "Woodstock" when "the Aspen Institute -- which receives millions a year from both the State Department and USAID -- held a star-studded confab in Aspen in August 2021 to release its final report on 'Information Disorder.'" The report had Katie Couric listed as a co-author and Prince Harry serving as a Commissioner, according to Taibbi.

"Their taxpayer-backed conclusions: the state should have total access to data to make searching speech easier, speech offenders should be put in a 'holding area,' and government should probably restrict disinformation, 'even if it means losing some freedom,'" Taibbi said.

So much for living in a 'constitutional republic.'
