- The Biden administration pressured Facebook to censor Fox News host Tucker Carlson, according to newly revealed leaked documents published by Louisiana’s Republican Attorney General Jeff Landry.
- The White House pressed Facebook to censor Carlson for allegedly saying “vaccines” “don’t work,” the document shows.
- On April 14, 2021, White House Director of Digital Strategy Rob Flaherty reportedly sent an email to an unidentified Facebook employee to demand the censorship of Carlson. The email was posted on Twitter by Landry.
- It read: “Since we’ve been on the phone – the top post about vaccines today is [T]ucker Carlson saying they don’t work. Yesterday it was Tomi Lehren [sic] saying she won’t take one. “This is exactly why I want to know what ‘Reduction’ actually looks like – if ‘reduction’ means ‘pumping our most vaccine-hesitant audience with [T]ucker Carlson saying it doesn’t work’ then… I’m not sure it’s reduction!”
