White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki doubled-down on the Biden administration’s efforts to flag social media “disinformation” Friday; saying users banned on one platform should also be banned on other networks.
“You shouldn’t be banned from one platform and not others for providing misinformation,” said Psaki.

Psaki confirmed Thursday that senior Biden officials are working with social media companies to “flag problematic posts” related to COVID-19 and vaccines.
“This is a big issue of misinformation, specifically on the pandemic. We’ve increased disinformation research and tracking. We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation,” said Psaki.

“The fate of the Dakota Access Pipeline: Is it the administration’s belief that the construction of that pipeline should continue?” asked one reporter.
“Our view is that we would look at each pipeline through each individual pipeline separately and do an analysis,” said Psaki.
