Free speech far superior to allowing powerful people to suppress ‘misinformation’ – John Stossel

Published

From StosselTV

Many reports and opinions once labelled “misinformation” turned out to be true.  In recent years, people in government and big media suddenly decided it was their job to stop “misinformation.” Facebook banned posts that claimed Covid leaked from a lab. Now experts say the lab leak theory is probably right. Senator Rand Paul was suspended from YouTube for saying, “masks don’t work very well, particularly the cloth masks.” What he said is absolutely true. Twitter prevented the NY Post’s reporting about Hunter Biden’s laptop from being shared. The story was accurate.

It’s bad thing when media censors people. It’s worse when government polices speech. Twitter’s recently released internal files show government tried to control what you read.

The Bee-pocalypse: Another Scare Story the Media Got Wrong

Published on

From StosselTV

Have you heard? The honey bees are dying!

At least, that’s what the media and big money- hungry environmental groups want you to (bee)lieve.

About 20 years ago, some American bees died from “colony collapse disorder.” The media soon warned of a “bee-pocalypse” and that it might devastate our food supply.

But while the media was in a buzz, beekeepers adjusted and rebuilt their colonies. Since then, there are 31% more bees in America.

Do the media stop their fearmongering? NO! The scare just won’t go away.

Our video is here to tell more of the story.

Protecting Free Speech: The Early Warning Signs From Around The World

Published on

From StosselTV

We Americans take free speech for granted. But if you look around the world, you see why we shouldn’t.

In Britain, you can get arrested for saying things online that police find “offensive.”

In Scotland, misgendering someone can land you in jail for seven years.

Canada may soon pass a law that would punish “advocating genocide” with life in prison.

Now in the U.S., the House of Representatives voted for a bill that would make chants like “from the river to the sea” illegal at universities.

These are bad ideas. Free speech is valuable.

After 40+ years of reporting, I now understand the importance of limited government and personal freedom.
