“Vector” For Misinformation- Journo Fears Twitter Free Speech

Can the White House briefings get any dumber? Yes. Of course. Yesterday, a White House hack journalist (redundant) asked Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre (KJP) whether the White House had a plan to keep Twitter from becoming a “vector” for misinformation. Lord, help us. The press cannot allow the Bubbas (that’s you and me) unfettered access to free speech.

As with President Donald Trump, Elon Musk had a good life. He didn’t have to jump into the shark infested waters. People clamored for his Tesla’s, cheered his SpaceX launches, and hailed him as a hero for keeping the internet up in Ukraine with Starlink. But then, Elon bought Twitter. Dun, dun, DUN. Now, Musk facing a Trumpian never-ending shite storm from the little brains of the Elitist Class. They fear nothing more than losing their grip on the narrative. They fear losing control.

Take yesterday for instance. A hack journalist by the name of Andrea Shalal, of Reuters, is worried about Twitter becoming a “vector” for misinformation. Normies read that as more people speaking freely. Here is the receipt:

Speaking of tools. Miss Shalal is a tool. She is worried about Twitter becoming a vector for misinformation? For the last two decades, at least, the Legacy Media has been the major vector for misinformation. To have a reporter, whose job SHOULD be challenging the White House story, ask KJB what tools they have to shut down free speech is gobsmacking. She full on fears more people joining Twitter and speaking freely. She doesn’t want us sharing laundering tips or Vitamin D to fight Covid or voting irregularities. Here is Andrea Shalal:

She looks like her hobby is asking to see the manager at Neiman Marcus.

If KJP wasn’t a fascist herself and had a brain, she would have just said, “We believe in freedom of speech. We do not have tools to prevent Twitter from becoming a vector for misinformation. That is for the American people.” Instead, KJP insulted us all by stammering about violence. Again, the receipt:

What does KJP mean “monitoring”? That’s why Elon Musk should be askeered. As Not the Bee put it:

Now that alternative views can get out and people are free to engage in open debate, they are crying “misinformation” and suddenly the guy who brought us next-gen electric cars and rockets is Hitler. In the meantime, we’re supposed to pretend that the leftist reporters begging the White House for authoritarian collusion between government and private companies aren’t Nazis.

They hate you.

And, they do, hate you, that is. Three weeks ago, Deanna wrote a post about the journos reaction to the Musk/Twitter scene. She included this tweet:


The credentialed journalists have gotten it all wrong recently. From the Steele Dossier and Covid to the Biden laptop. Forget about the invasion as the Southern Border. They are incurious and parrot the official narrative. Bubba would do a much better job, because Bubba has common sense. And in Bubba’s world, you can’t lie to yourself about the truth.

Finally, let’s look at a couple of the definitions of vector:

: an organism (such as an insect) that transmits a pathogen from one organism or source to another
The insect vector in malaria is the anopheline mosquito, a genus comprising many species around the world.
Frank Graham, Jr.
compare CARRIER sense 5a, RESERVOIR sense 3
: POLLINATOR sense a
: an agent (such as a plasmid or virus) that contains or carries modified genetic material (such as recombinant DNA) and can be used to introduce exogenous genes into the genome of an organism

Sort of like parasites or symbiotes. Sounds like journalists. Vector this. Go Elon, go. More speech, not less.

    Here’s the worst case scenario for the spread of lies. I was traveling in India 4 years ago. I spent about 5 months there and visited every corner of the country. While I was there, there was “misinformation” being spread on Whatsapp via mass texts which lead to people being attacked and in a few cases killed. It usually was occurring in rural areas where people were susceptible to “believing misinformation.” The government had to step in and shut down Whatsapp and then developed a guideline that a sender was limited to the number of people that could receive a text making it much harder to quickly spread misinformation. “Freedom of speech” comes with the responsibility you’re not going to scream fire in a crowded theater when it’s fake. We all know how much “responsibility” is assumed by internet users.

      So, the people are too stupid to make these sorts of decisions and nanny government must make it for them? Not India, but in America?
      That’s the best indictment of progressive education I’ve ever seen.

      • Kevin says:

        Yeah, look to the US to see “people who are too stupid” to believe misinformation and lies as the gold standard.

        • GWB says:

          Well, you’re right. After all, Joe Biden was elected in 2020.

          • Kevin says:

            Wasn’t it absolutely hilarious that TFG was punked by Ye, Feuntes and Yiannopoulos! Now, that was fucking stupid; probably the lowest anyone could go. I would have loved to see TFG’s response when Ye asked him to be his running mate. You can’t make this shit up!

      So the only takeaway from your paragraph is that it’s a good thing we don’t live in India.

    Jordan Peterson taught me that free speech is the foundation. Elon Musk has shown me that free speech is feared by the powerful. They may succeed in destroying Twitter by scaring off advertisers. The alternative is paid subscription.

    I’ve never had any interest in Twitter – until Musk bought them.

    I’m just one person – but if I can support free speech with $8 a month. I will – in honor of the people who died to give it to me.

    Thanks for reading.

    “Here’s the worst case scenario for the spread of lies.”

    Define “lie”. “Liberals hate you and want you dead” is not a lie. “Joe Biden is an honest man” is a lie. Guess which one will be labelled “misinformation”.

  • GWB says:

    For the last two decades, at least
    Oh, Toni, c’mon. You should know it goes waaaaay back. To at least 1968, with Cronkite declaring the Tet Offensive a victory for the North Vietnamese.

    Bubba would do a much better job, because Bubba has common sense.
    Only some Bubbas. Yes, more than journalists, but still a much smaller number than is necessary to fix things right now. Still, free speech is better than religiously-censored speech the Progs want.

    Twitter has always been a source of leftist misinformation. Mush is simply trying to stop it.
