I wish we could expose how all this is achieved on the government’s behalf at: CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, NYT, AP, WAPO, NPR

I wish we could peak into Google. As bad as this is, I'm sure Google is worse. Google has the power to inflict something close to mass mind control.

I am so grateful for this reference. I have read every single tweet from every single reporter and every email, picture, letter, etc that was published. When I think of journalism, I think of the independent voices that are just looking for the truth, as you all have done and are doing. You are all heroes to me.

The most glaring contradiction in everything revealed so far is how Twitter got into the content moderation game ostensibly to prevent interference with elections via Russian misinformation (Thread 11) ... and then ended up using those tools to interfere with elections by suppressing true information (Hunter Biden story, Threads 1, 7). It’s basically Exhibit A for why we have the First Amendment.

Is anyone else thinking there is no end to this? How could there be? How do you hold every stinking foul corrupt branch of govt accountable? I mean who exactly goes after CIS and FBI and NS anything?

Speechless.

And to summarize the summary--the US government intel community has taken over social media to achieve the censoring it cannot do itself in the open.

I guess I should not be surprised that some enterprising journalist working for one of the MSM outlets hasn't jumped on this. No Woodwards and Bernsteins out there I guess. All we hear is.....crickets!

I am really afraid this entire story is going to be muzzled/smothered by people who ought to be screaming at the top of their lungs about government run amok. Keep the ball rolling, Matt. Hardly anyone else is.

Has any significant figure in the MSM (not the alternative media like Matt and Greenwald) come out and said, hey, this looks like a problem? We can't have the FBI deciding who gets to speak? Not rhetorical, serious question. Surely somebody somewhere must have wrinkled a brow.

1. Thanks Matt for the great summary.

2. Does Substack have a block feature? I wasn't able to find one. If not, please consider this an enhancement request. (Anyone reading this comment thread should know why.)

If this honest, courageous, and indefatigable journalism, exposing massive rot in government and media, doesn’t deserve a Pulitzer Prize, then nothing does. Matt needs to watch his back lest he goes the way of Snowden and Assange. Or Epstein.
