Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) has addressed the Biden administration’s collaboration with Facebook to combat so-called vaccine misinformation. In a letter sent to Joe Biden himself, she highlighted her concerns while noting this move by the administration could be a violation of the First Amendment. The Tennessee lawmaker asked about the criteria they are using to flag and remove posts or ban users. She also questioned the administration’s legal basis to direct social media platforms to follow its guidance. Blackburn requested to be briefed on the matter by August 2. Her inquiry comes as the Democrat Party continues to push Big Tech to get rid of what they deem to be misinformation surrounding coronavirus from the internet. Namely, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) went on CNN Sunday to call on companies like Facebook and Twitter to remove this alleged misinformation from their platforms.
