Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube remove COVID-19 video after going viral

Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube have removed a viral COVID-19 video that was posted by Breitbart News. It depicts Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) and frontline doctors in a press conference in D.C. sharing their opinions on coronavirus and the medical response to the pandemic. They claimed that hydroxychloroquine is ’a cure for COVID’ and that ’you don’t need a mask’ to slow the spread of the virus.

I tend to strongly dislike big tech companies but in this case, I think the right choice was made. The spread of misinformation during such a volatile time can and will cost lives.

Good. The less misinformation out there, the sooner we can get this damn thing under control.
