The Biden administration successfully pressured social media companies and tech platforms into censoring the speech of their customers, “distorting public debate” about the origins of the Covid-19 virus and the effectiveness of vaccines, according to a new report from House Republicans.

The lengthy interim report published last week by the House Select Subcommittee on Weaponization presents dozens of internal emails between White House officials and employees at Facebook, Amazon, and YouTube demonstrating how the Biden administration pushed the platforms into adopting new censorship policies for social media posts and books.
