Gov. DeSantis Slams Big Tech’s COVID-19 Censorship, Calls for Accountability

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis slammed Big Tech’s censorship of COVID-19 content in a roundtable discussionannouncing that he was calling for a “grand jury” to investigate “wrongdoing” related to COVID vaccines. 

DeSantis not only called out Twitter for its biased COVID-19 censorship, particularly as revealed in the Twitter Files, but insisted that many other tech platforms practice unjust censorship and need accountability.

“Part of the reason I think it’s been a bad response is because from the very beginning you had a lot of arrogance that it’s our way or the highway, and anyone that offers any type of a dissenting opinion [was censored],” DeSantis said. “They were censoring from Day One.” Even in March and April 2020, social media censored people who criticized lockdowns, DeSantis noted, “over and over again.”

DeSantis said a policy or analysis of medical science should “stand on its own.”

DeSantis said he anticipates even more revelations from Elon Musk regarding the Twitter Files, calling them “important,” but noted that Twitter is hardly the only or the largest tech company censoring. Google, YouTube, and other platforms suppressedCOVID-19 content, too, as an MRC Free Speech America study previously highlighted.
