A viral video of a press conference in D.C. featuring frontline doctors who shared their views and opinions on CCP Virus (coronavirus) pandemic was removed by Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter after it reached millions of views.
The video posted by Breitbart News on Monday, July 27, had garnered over 17 million views by the time of it was censored by Facebook, which was subsequently followed by YouTube (owned by Google) and Twitter.
The press conference was hosted by the organization America’s Frontline Doctors, a group of medical doctors who came together to speak up about what they called a “massive disinformation campaign” about the CCP Virus such as the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in treating the virus, reported Breitbart News.
“This is a much watch!!!” Donald Trump Jr. posted the video on Twitter which is now censored by the social media.
“So different from the narrative that everyone is running with,” he said.

Facebook spokesman Andy Stone told the paper that it removed the video “for sharing false information about cures and treatments for COVID-19 [CCP Virus].” He did not elaborate on details, adding that the video would direct viewers to “myths debunked by the WHO.”
Dr. Stella Immanuel talks about her experience treating COVID-19 patients with Hydroxychloroquine, Zinc, and Zithromax.

Rep. Gaetz files criminal referral against Facebook’s Zuckerberg for false statements
Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter have allegedly increased censorship and are silencing conservative voices as mounting evidence has surfaced.
Several former Facebook employees revealed that they routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers from the social network’s influential “trending” news section, according to Gizmodo.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) has moved to take action against Facebook, filing a criminal referral with U.S. Attorney General William Barr against the company’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg for making false statements to Congress while under oath during two joint congressional hearings in 2018.
“Mr. Zuckerberg repeatedly and categorically denied his company engaged in bias against conservative speech, persons, policies, or politics and also denied that Facebook censored and suppressed content supportive of President Donald Trump and other conservatives,” Gaetz’s referral stated.

Facebook’s political bias against Republicans came from Project Veritas on Monday, showing a Facebook employee who removed content supporting President Trump.
“Rep. Gaetz criminal referral for Zuckerberg comes on the heels of undercover recordings released by @Project_Veritas featuring FB content moderators like Lara Kontakos who said “If someone is wearing a MAGA hat, I’m going to delete them for terrorism,”” tweeted Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe.
