Twitter’s New ‘Truth Czar’ Once Claimed Trump Administration are ‘Actual Nazis’

This is not about finding the truth – it’s about creating it.

By far the most controversial story of this week has been Twitter’s rollout of a new “fact checking” system that will brand tweets that defy the mainstream narrative as somehow less trustworthy than what the infotainment industry is regurgitating.

Of course, it doesn’t take much to see exactly why they’re doing this, as one of the first uses of this new form of censorship came in the form of a “fact check” against President Donald Trump.

As with any “fact checking” scenario, there is one very pertinent reality that we must remember:  If there is more than one source for checking “facts”, then it is quite obvious that it’s not the truth that these organizations are after.  There should be no dispute on what “facts” are.

Yet, here we are, watching Twitter brand tweets as “erroneous” at the behest of an executive who once claimed that the Trump administration were “actual Nazis”.

Yoel Roth, whose official job title is “Head of Site Integrity,” explained the platform’s new policy in a May 11 blog post on “misleading information” on coronavirus.

“In serving the public conversation, our goal is to make it easy to find credible information on Twitter and to limit the spread of potentially harmful and misleading content,” he said.

But Roth’s judgement may not be very trustworthy.

Once again:  This is not about finding the truth – it’s about creating it.
