Yep Alex Berenson sued and was able to prove that the white house was consistently pushing twitter to ban him until the finally complied and did. I think the scariest thing to me about this is it puts the government in a position to use these companies to violate our first amendment rights. That way they government can say "we aren't violating your free speech rights these companies can do what they want". Meanwhile they are in the back room calling these companies begging them to ban you and who knows what else goes on in these back room conversations.
I’m not seeing anything in your source saying some guy in a White House back room was calling up Twitter to ban this reporter. The article says the Biden administration put pressure on Twitter to stop COVID misinformation.
It sounds like the White House and Twitter were doing their jobs.
I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
