After Fox News’ White House correspondent asked press secretary Jen Psaki a series of questions on social media censorship during Friday’s briefing, establishment media rushed to slam Doocy for his line of questioning.
Doocy pressed Psaki for her comments that the White House would flag “misinformation” to Facebook, as well as her claim that someone who is banned from one social media platform should be banned on all platforms. Psaki dodged the questions and said that the White House was not the one taking down posts deemed to be misinformation.
Doocy asked if something the White House flagged as “misinformation” could be proven accurate later. When people raised questions about whether the novel coronavirus could have originated in a lab, Doocy said, they were flagged for peddling misinformation. Although, later on, the lab leak theory eventually proved to be a strong possibility.
“We don’t take anything down, we don’t block anything,” Psaki responded. “Facebook and any private sector company makes decisions about what information should be on their platform.”
Establishment media quickly stepped to slam Doocy. (RELATED: ‘I Don’t Think Anything About This Is Funny’: Doocy Presses Psaki On Texas Democrats Fleeing State)
