“So this disclaimer, it’s a positive step, but we want every platform to continue doing more to call out misinformation while also uplifting accurate information.”
A reporter asked Jen Psaki about Spotify placing a disclaimer on Joe Rogan’s podcast due to supposed misinformation on Covid.
I see headlines saying Psaki and the White House have urged or encouraged Spotify to censor Rogan and others for “misinformation.”
My opinion? That is definitely what she meant. However, here is what she said:
“Sure. Well, last July, as you probably know, but the surgeon general also took the unprecedented step to issue an adviser on the risk of misinformation and public health, which is a very significant step and admitted that he talked about the role social media platforms have. So our hope is that all major tech platforms and all major news sources for that matter be responsible and be vigilant to ensure the American people have access to accurate information on something as significant as Covid-19. That certainly includes Spotify. So this disclaimer, it’s a positive step, but we want every platform to continue doing more to call out misinformation while also uplifting accurate information. I mean look at the facts right?”

Ah, worded perfectly. Use a few different words and phrases and you can get away with being a fascist.
She slips a tad when using “want” instead of “hope.” But still, they can explain it away. It’s not like the MSM is going to call them out.
But we will. The word “want” carries more significance because the government has spent years trying to dismantle Big Tech. They want to control it, they want those in charge to follow their direction. Then again, hearings with Facebook and Twitter show the CEOs want the government to take control. That means they don’t have to take responsibility for their product.
Let’s also look at how we use the word “want.”
If I told my mom, “This is a decent amount of money, but I want more,” isn’t a demand and my mom knows she doesn’t have to give me more money. I’m just telling her how I feel.
We know the government is different. Their “want” is a demand.
