Everyone is entitled to express their own opinion. People post information for and against other topics and those posts are not removed. Just because our government disagrees with something, they do not have the authority to infringe upon our right to free speech. If it's vaccines today, what will it be tomorrow.

The key words are "what it considers to be vaccine misinformation". The government is prohibited from infringing upon our free speech. I don't accept any party determining what misinformation is. Social Media should be held accountable for taking orders from this administration on what and what is not "misinformation".

Currently, social media outlets are deciding what is "truth" and what is "misinformation," yet these are not non-partisan organizations. There is little difference between allowing the companies to decide what is vaccine misinformation, and what is political misinformation. If Facebook won't allow a comment about the vaccine that they don't like, what is to stop them from refusing to allow a statement about which candidate would make the better president? Social media has become a pseudo-utility, which should be available to all. Therefore, they should not be able to decide what is and is not misinformation.

It is not their place or their responsibility to decide what is said and what isn't said...if they are allowed to continue to make these determinations, then what's next? What you say? Or what I say? This is a slippery slope and who are they to become the decision makers for the rest of us...no way!

I had to vote undecided. Something must be done to stop the squelching of public discussion by Big Tech but I certainly don't trust the current administration or the current Congress to do it, just as I don't believe we can trust that they (I'm including the CDC here) are being completely truthful about the Covid pandemic and treatment options. It seems the intentional squelching of legitimate information has only served to further fuel misinformation as well as conspiracy theories. Doctors and other medical or scientific community members with good-to-excellent reputations are maligned and worse, in an effort to silence them via social media. It has become a social crime of sorts to share any glimmer of alternative treatment or prevention hope unless it's an expensive drug pushed by the kingmakers of Big Pharma. It's disheartening and maddening to think that these people are intent on making outlandish profits off the desperation of the sick and dying. This situation is of far more need of Congressional investigation than the insipid partisan "investigations" currently underway.

I voted "Yes" but am not sure if the question means Biden's administration believes the info is false, or the media company, independently, is censoring information they believe to be false. None of the "fake" media, and I include the media giants, offers real information on the the Covid-19 virus or the shots being called vaccines. I have seen little info on the fact the shot does not create anti-bodies in the systems of those who receive it. Note the legislators who fled Texas and were diagnosed with the virus in Washington, D.C. after they infected a large number of White House staff and Congressional members. The info is difficult to find, but it is there for those who search. So what is the false information in that scenario? The truth, which the government does not want you to know? Or a real falsehood that this was just an unusual, (read not normal) situation? It is very difficult to really know what is the truth and who is telling it in many instances.
