Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

On Wednesday evening Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” featured guest Matt Taibbi, independent journalist reporting on the Twitter Files.  Taibbi told Carlson the files revealed the U.S. government not only attempted to manipulate Twitter’s censorship of speech, but Facebook and Google as well.  When Carlson asked about the government’s infiltration of the two platforms, Taibbi responded, “Yes, and there’s evidence for that. Certainly, we’ve seen that they have what they called weekly or monthly industry meetings with the DHS and the FBI. And those included a number of companies, including Facebook, in some cases, Wikipedia, Pinterest, there were a whole series of companies included in these communications.”
