President Joe Biden took to the podium on Monday morning to discuss the state of the economy during his first six months in office. For the few reporters who got the chance to ask questions of the commander-in-chief at the end, it was his comments on Facebook, and not the economy, that were key.
“You said last week that companies and platforms like Facebook are ‘killing people’ by—” Biden was asked.
“I mean precisely what I said, I’m glad you asked me that question,” Biden said. “One, I had just read that on the Facebook, Facebook pointed out, it was pointed out that Facebook, of all the misinformation, 60 percent of the misinformation came from 12 individuals. That’s what the article said. So I was asked that question about what do I think is happening. Facebook isn’t killing people, these 12 people are out there giving misinformation. Anyone listening to it is getting hurt by it. It’s killing people. It’s bad information,” Biden said.
“My hope is that Facebook, instead of taking it personally that somehow I’m saying Facebook is killing people, that they would do something about the misinformation, the outrageous misinformation about the vaccine. That’s what I meant.”
“Have they done enough in your opinion to stop—” The reporter followed up, with Biden interrupting again.
“I haven’t, to be completely honest with you, I don’t know if they did anything today, up to over the weekend I don’t think they had, but I don’t know, I don’t know the answer to that question,” Biden said.
“Will you hold them accountable?” Biden was asked.

“When you say hold accountable, I just wanna, I’m not trying to hold people accountable, I’m trying to make people look at themselves, look in the mirror. Think about that misinformation going to your son, your daughter, your relative, someone you love, that’s what I’m asking,” Biden attempted to clarify.
It was on Friday that Biden said that social media platforms such as Facebook are “killing people” and the “only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated.”As part of his prepared remarks Monday, Biden touted jobs growth under his administration, “more than […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
