Big Tech and Mind Control Web Pinterest Blocks Vaccination Searches in Move to Control the Conversation
: Robert McMillan and Daniela Hernandez : The Wall Street Journal : Feb 20, 2019
As we warned in yesterday’s GM, and our study, big tech companies are enemies of free speech and honest and open discussion. Orwell warned us in his great novel 1984 about a totalitarian government censoring the discussion of its citizens. But now big tech companies have beaten the government to the role of censor.
Pinterest is removing all search results for certain terms, such as “vaccine”. No search results, no discussion. Welcome to the Brave New World of One speak.
SummaryPinterest has stopped returning results for searches related to vaccinations, a drastic step the social-media company said is aimed at curbing the spread of misinformation but one that demonstrates the power of tech companies to censor discussion of hot-button issues.
