Is the Biden administration in bed with leftwing media?

In a series of posts detailing internal communications among Twitter executives, Taibbi suggests a collaboration of government and the company of what appears to be a coordinated effort to censor or slant information available to the public and individuals — particularly conservatives.

Two U.S. agencies he identified included the State Department’s Global Engagement Center and the Department of Defense.

Taibbi was concerned about the government grants to an organization that targets news outlets, writing:

Government records show a purchase order from the Department of Defense amounting to $749,387 with the recipient listed as NewsGuard Technologies Inc. Also listed: a start date of Sept. 7, 2021, and an end date of Dec. 8, 2022. Continue reading at Newsmax.
