Yes. Yes They Do.

Surgeon General Vivek Murthy says people have no right to spread "misinformation" (reclaimthenet.org)

How you get to be in such a high position in American Government without understanding American principles is completely beyond me. There is no “misinformation” exception to the First Amendment.

And it’s worth pointing out that just because you disagree with something, that doesn’t make it misinformation. You might be wrong, you know. In fact, if there’s anything that this China Virus has taught us, it’s that our “experts” are often wrong.

US authorities seem to be doubling down on their policy of enlisting the help of Big Tech and traditional media in suppressing what they see as medical misinformation being spread by users of social networks and accounts run by these privately-owned corporate giants.

US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy told CNN that media outlets and journalists should play an instrumental role in stopping people from speaking about their choices regarding COVID – although he acknowledged that they still have the right to those choices.

That’s awfully nice of him. You can (for the moment) still make your own choices about the China virus. But if those choices differ from the official mantra, you can’t tell people about them.

The emperor has no clothes.
