Social media platforms like Facebook are killing people

A reporter asked the president if he had a message for social media companies about Covid misinformation. President Biden replied, “They’re killing people. Look, the only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated. And they’re killing people.” The White House has turned its attention this week toward social media platforms that allow the spread of Covid-19 misinformation as the federal government tries to promote vaccinations across the country. On Thursday, Surgeon General Vivek Murthy declared misinformation to be an “urgent threat” to public safety. [There are] about 12 people who are producing 65 percent of anti-vaccine misinformation on social media platforms. All of them remain active on Facebook, despite some even being banned on other platforms, including… ones that Facebook owns. That stat comes from a report by the Center for Countering Digital Hate, which calls these people the “disinformation dozen.”
