Description: Such as the notion that the novel coronavirus was created in a Chinese lab as a bioweapon, that it was created by Microsoft Corp founder Bill Gates, or that the virus is a hoax.

Alphabet Inc’s Google said on Friday it would prohibit websites and apps that use its advertising technology from running ads on “dangerous content” that goes against scientific consensus during the coronavirus pandemic. The world’s largest search engine updated its policy as the health crisis has continued to rage throughout the United States, and digital advertising giants like Google and Facebook Inc have faced calls to do more to clamp down on misinformation. Content not allowed to make money from ads include debunked conspiracy theories, such as the notion that the novel coronavirus was created in a Chinese lab as a bioweapon, that it was created by Microsoft Corp founder Bill Gates, or that the virus is a hoax, Google said in a statement. Google already bars ads with harmful content like “miracle” health cures or which promote the anti-vaccination movement.

It also prevents ads from running on publisher content that encourages those topics. Google’s new policy will also bar advertisers from creating their own ads that promote coronavirus conspiracy theories. Google allows only certain institutions to run ads about the coronavirus pandemic, including government organizations and healthcare providers, to prevent activities like price-gouging on medical supplies.

China Slams U.S. ‘Digital Hegemony,’ Calls for Online ‘Sovereignty’

China Slams U.S. ‘Digital Hegemony,’ Calls for Online ‘Sovereignty’

Description: China’s state-run Global Times on Tuesday denounced big tech censorship of President Donald Trump as an exercise of “U.S. digital hegemony” and demanded companies like Twitter, Google, Apple, and Amazon recognize the “sovereignty” of other nations in cyberspace. Trump is not generally portrayed as a sympathetic figure in Chinese state media. Even the Global Times lament of the censorship deployed against him slipped in a prediction from “Chinese analysts” that “Trumpism won’t disappear” as a result of big tech attempting to silence him, but instead will “keep tearing apart the U.S.”

The Tuesday editorial from the Global Times offers a good example of how Chinese propagandists carefully study American journalism, commentary, and social media, constantly seeking angles that can be exploited for Beijing’s political gain. In this case, big tech’s censorship of Trump became a platform for the Global Times to repeat its criticism of American “hegemony” over the Internet — by which it means the U.S. criticizing China for human rights violations and political oppression. When the Chinese Communist Party talks about “sovereignty,” it means the rest of the world leaving it alone to do as it pleases with dissidents and inconvenient minorities. As the Russians have done, the Global Times portrayed the Capitol riots as America’s support for democracy movements and “color revolutions” circling around to bite Washington in the posterior:
Shen Yi, a professor at the School of International Relations and Public Affairs of Fudan University told the Global Times that the measure that Democrats and social media giants imposed on Trump and his supporters after the Capitol Hill riot is “a classic tactic for the US to overthrow a government overseas – using a conflict as an opportunity to incite the public by selectively spreading or muting specific information online,” to dominate the public opinion and create condition for a Color Revolution or a coup and eliminate a political force with made-up justification. “The result has proven that the tactic is very effective. Trump and his supporters are doomed,” Shen said.

The Global Times quoted concerns from Americans — from the American Civil Liberties Union to Republican congressman Devin Nunes — about the antitrust ramifications of big tech giants colluding to squash upstart competitors like Parler, an alternative to Twitter. This concern is difficult to accept as sincere coming from the state media apparatus of an authoritarian government that tightly controls every industry, directly owns many of the biggest competitors, and has a knack for making anyone who forgets Beijing is the mightiest monopolist on Earth disappear until they get their minds right. The Global Times argument against Silicon Valley oligarchy soon mutated into the usual attack on capitalism, mixed with gloating about how democracies have a hard time coping with China’s coronavirus pandemic:
The establishment forces have shown their ultimate power to almost eliminate Trump’s political influence in the last week of his term, but they didn’t act so united and assertive to intervene in Trump’s governance before, even during the administration’s failed handling and misinformation that cost the lives of more than 370,000 Americans from COVID-19, Shen said, adding that “to these elites, the Capitol riot seems like much more harmful than the deadly and uncontrolled epidemic situation.” This has shown that the power center of the US that empowers all establishment forces, politicians, media, social media networks and firms is still Wall Street, and there is nothing that can compete with the power of capital, [Chinese Academy of Social Sciences fellow Lü Xiang] said.

The article concluded with a prediction from Renmin University’s Jin Canrong that so long as “uneven development between financial industry and substantial economy” and “unfair distribution between elites and middle class” persist in America, “a smarter Trumpist with more sophisticated political skills might return to the game.”



Report: Biden Administration Is Teaming Up with Big Tech to Censor Vaccine Skeptics
Breitbart News

Category: Politics
Published: February 20, 2021

Description: The Biden administration is working with Facebook, Google, and Twitter to target “COVID misinformation” and overcome “vaccine hesitancy,” according to senior officials in the administration who spoke to Reuters. Via Reuters:
The White House’s direct engagement with the companies to mitigate the challenge has not been previously reported. Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klain has previously said the administration will try to work with Silicon Valley on the issue. “Disinformation that causes vaccine hesitancy is going to be a huge obstacle to getting everyone vaccinated and there are no larger players in that than the social media platforms,” said the source, who has direct knowledge of the White House’s efforts. “We are talking to them … so they understand the importance of misinformation and disinformation and how they can get rid of it quickly.” The Biden White House is especially trying to make sure such material “does not start trending on such platforms and become a broader movement,” the source said.

A spokesperson from Facebook confirmed that the company proactively reached out to the Biden White House to offer “any assistance we can provide.” A Twitter spokesperson said that the company is “in regular communication with the White House on a number of critical issues including COVID-19 misinformation.”

The government source who spoke to Reuters confirmed that the tech companies were “receptive” to requests for more censorship of “misinformation,” and promised further updates on the Biden administration’s censorship efforts “within the next ten days or so.” According to Reuters, the source pointed to a recent anti-vaccine protest at L.A’s Dodgers Stadium as an example of events that the administration wanted to prevent from happening in the future.

Description: Sen. Ron Johnson said YouTube, which is owned by Google, removed two videos from a Senate hearing about COVID-19 treatments from its platform on Wednesday. “Social media censorship just ratcheted up to a new level. Google’s YouTube removed two videos of doctors testifying under oath at my US Senate hearing on early treatment of COVID,” the Wisconsin Republican wrote on Twitter. “Another body blow to freedom of speech and expression. Very sad and scary. Where does this end?”
Apparently, the “doctors” at Google know more about practicing medicine than heroic doctors who have the courage and compassion to actually treat COVID patients and save lives.
— Senator Ron Johnson (@SenRonJohnson) January 28, 2021

In the screenshot Johnson posted on Twitter, one of the videos featuring Dr. Pierre Kory, a professor of medicine at St. Luke’s Aurora Medical Center in Milwaukee, is listed as “removed” for “inappropriate content.” Kory, who testified during the Dec. 8, 2020 hearing on the effectiveness of the “anti-parasite, anti-viral drug, anti-inflammatory agent called ivermectin” as a COVID treatment, was one of the six medical professionals asked to speak in front of Congress as witnesses. “Apparently, the ‘doctors’ at Google know more about practicing medicine than heroic doctors who have the courage and compassion to actually treat COVID patients and save lives,” Johnson continued. YouTube told The Federalist that the video was “removed for violating our COVID-19 misinformation policy.” The removal of the videos is just the latest in the alarming trend of Big Tech giants using their power to censor or silence information they do not agree with or like. Earlier this month, YouTube announced a ban on all videos shedding light on voter fraud in the United States’ most recent presidential election. Initially, the video platform removed only videos declaring widespread voter fraud, but now, the enforcement of the updated policy will include removing and issuing a strike on the channel of the user who posted the content. Strikes on YouTube prevent users from uploading, sharing, and live-streaming on their channels for a minimum of a week and can even result in a full ban. “Now that the election results have been certified, and due to the extraordinary events that transpired yesterday, videos uploaded on or after today (January 7) that violate this policy will both be removed and a strike will be applied to the channel,” the Big Tech company’s statement said. “As strikes can impact a channel’s standing, including the ability to upload … we recommend that you be familiar with the policy when publishing relevant content on YouTube.”

Google Quietly Escalates Manual Search Censorship

Google Quietly Escalates Manual Search Censorship

Description: Google has quietly escalated censorship of its market-dominating search engine, adding a range of new topics where human moderators are allowed to manually penalize websites, suppressing them in search results. If a website is affected by one of these manual acts of censorship, “some or all of that site will not be shown in Google search results,” according to the tech giant. The list, published in full on Google’s support website, includes the following:
* Discover policy violation: Adult-themed content
* News and Discover policy violation: Dangerous content
* News and Discover policy violation: Harassing content
* News and Discover policy violation: Hateful content
* News and Discover policy violation: Manipulated media
* News and Discover policy violation: Medical content
* Discover policy violation: Misleading content
* News and Discover policy violation: Sexually explicit content
* News and Discover policy violation: Terrorist content
* News policy violation: Transparency
* News and Discover policy violation: Violence and gore content
* News and Discover policy violation: Vulgar language and profanity
Publishers who have been hit with a manual action by Google will be able to appeal the decision by “fixing” whatever issue violated the policy and then submitting their website to Google for a review. Google states that it could take “several days or a week” for the tech giant to reach a final decision, leaving Once upon a time, Google attempted to conceal its censorship of search. Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai insisted, under oath before congress, that the company does not “manually intervene on any particular search result,” a statement that one of Google’s own former employees said was a lie. Leaks like the “Good Censor” briefing and YouTube’s search blacklists, both published by Breitbart News, attracted viral attention because they revealed manual censorship of search results, in particular political search results, and contrary to Pichai’s statements, occurred regularly at Google. But as Republicans failed to impose any consequences on Google or other tech companies for their growing political interference and erosion of Americans’ ability to exercise their First Amendment rights online, Google and other tech companies became less concerned about hiding their acts of censorship. Analysis by Breitbart News also revealed that Google suppressed links to conservative news websites, including Breitbart, on searches for “Biden” and “Joe Biden” ahead of the 2020 election — but this was discovered in part by anaylzing data from Google’s own publisher console, a sign of how relaxed the tech giant has become about its political interference being discovered.
