California: Facebook reportedly held a secret meeting with the World Health Organization to combat the spread of information on social media about the coronavirus that they claim is misinformation and conspiracy theories, characterizing it as an ‘infodemic’. Both Facebook and Twitter already announced that they would remove content deemed to be misinformation regarding the virus, however, what is considered “misinformation” is totally subjective. Amazon, Twilio, Dropbox, Google, Verizon, Salesforce, Twitter, YouTube, Airbnb, Kinsa and Mapbox were all at the meeting.

The World Health Organization has held talks with tech giants to stop the spread of coronavirus “misinformation,” despite the fact that some things once labeled “misinformation” have since turned out to be true.

The meeting was organized by the WHO but hosted by Facebook at its Menlo Park campus in California. Attendees included representatives from Amazon, Twilio, Dropbox, Google, Verizon, Salesforce, Twitter, YouTube, Airbnb, Kinsa and Mapbox.

According to the WHO’s Andy Pattison, an “infodemic” of misinformation has accompanied the coronavirus outbreak and big tech giants need to respond by censoring “fake news” content.

Both Facebook and Twitter already announced that they would remove content deemed to be misinformation regarding the virus, a dangerous new lurch to mass censorship given that what is considered “misinformation” is totally subjective and beholden to partisan bias.

So the U.N. would go so far as to SHUT DOWN A FOX NEWS INTERVIEW with SENATOR COTTON, because SENATOR COTTON maintains that the virus was BIOWAR INCOMPETENCE at the Wuhan labs.. violating a country’s government official’s performance of services under his authority….

But heaven help anyone suggesting that South African speech [KILL THE BOER] should be even harshly criticized….
