Investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald spoke on Thursday about the Biden White House admitting that it partnered with big tech companies like Facebook to censor so-called “misinformation.”
Greenwald, who in particular spread the history of civil surveillance of Edward Snowden and the NSA, told Fox News Primetime that the apparent merger between large private companies and a powerful federal government was a “classic definition” of economic fascism.
“I’ve been trying to make the point for well over a year now [that] A lot of people think this censorship is coming from executives on Facebook, Google and Twitter, which is really not true, “Greenwald said Thursday.
The journalist added that Big Tech seemed intimidated by liberal journalists who “shamed” them for not censoring enough during the Trump era when the Democrats “rose in power” – while Democratic lawmakers kept repeating it Technology CEOs called on Capitol Hill to continue “threatening” them if they fail to censor what the left calls “hate speech” or “misinformation”.
“It’s really an amalgamation of state and corporate power, which, ironically, is the classic definition of fascism,” Greenwald said.
“We have heard so much about fascism in the past five years. It really is. And the people who say they are against it are actually supporting him now, ”he said.
Growing concerns about federal government interventionist measures came to a head earlier in the day when White House press secretary Jennifer Psaki essentially admitted that the Biden administration is asking the big tech giants to stifle a speech they made dislike – or as host Pete Hegseth said: Make Facebook, Google and Twitter the “de facto censorship arm of the federal government”.
Hegseth noted that Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, whose role is the country’s chief medical officer, spoke at the White House about the apparent epidemic of such “misinformation”.
Murthy noted that his office’s “public health threats” public notices are being retained – such as the USSG’s lung cancer warning long affixed to tobacco packaging – but instead warned of the “insidious threat” the “misinformation” for represent public health.
“Misinformation, it’s always misinformation,” said Hegseth. “It’s a word the Biden government can’t get enough of. It is Orwellian double language – intentionally ambiguous so that you can define it – always. “
Hegseth reiterated that Psaki, Murthy, and Biden can essentially ask Big Tech to label any statements or images it wants as “misinformation” – even if the facts contained therein are true.
He also noted that “misinformation” has since replaced “circle-back” as the spokeswoman’s catchphrase du jour.
The host added that President Trump – long ridiculed by groups like the Antifa, whose name is a trunk word of “anti-fascist” – as a supplier of “fascist” politics – essentially received a gift in his pending class action lawsuit against Big Tech.

Trump sued social media companies in federal court in Miami earlier this month, claiming he and others were wrongly silenced over their political beliefs.
“Today’s White House admission underscores the point President Trump is making in his class action lawsuit against Facebook – that social media companies are acting as the de facto censorship arm of the federal government,” Hegseth said.
“I hope the Trump team does this clip ‘Exhibit # 5,000’ in their lawsuit. They just came out and said it.”
