A legal group called the New Civil Liberties Alliance has filed a lawsuit against the the U.S. Surgeon General and HHS. The lawsuit is over recent actions where our government, pressured Twitter, Facebook, and others to censor COVID-19 “misinformation”. Along with this, there were demands that the platforms turn over information regarding users, and directions for censorship. This is falling under a First Amendment violation, as the lines between what social media platforms do, and what the government does, have become blurred. I don’t care what the political view is, I care about the government sponsored and perhapes even government imposed censorship.

Washington, DC (March 25, 2022) – Mark Changizi, Daniel Kotzin, and Michael Senger each had or have Twitter accounts with tens of thousands of followers or more. Their Twitter platforms provided them with a social network, and an outlet to express their views, to hear the views of others, and to engage with detractors and fans alike. Outrageously, the U.S. Surgeon General and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have directed social media platforms including Twitter to censor alleged “misinformation” about Covid-19. The speech ban has included information the Government later conceded was true but that conflicted with the Government’s messaging on Covid-19 at the time. On March 3, the Surgeon General demanded that the tech companies turn over information about individuals who spread such “misinformation,” a clear intimidation tactic that HHS has labeled a “Request for Information” (RFI). In response to Government pressure, Twitter has permanently banned Mr. Senger, and temporarily suspended Mr. Changizi and Mr. Kotzin.
