Pinterest Blocks All Vaccine-Related Searches
Jewish billionaires know what is best for us on all topics; no need for anyone to find — or be able to find — contrary opinions.
THE Internet sharing platform Pinterest has blocked all vaccine-related searches site-wide in an effort to combat what they call the “misleading content” of the rapidly-growing anti-vaccination movement.
Speaking in an appearance on CNBC, a spokeswoman for the online “pinboard” said it implemented the ban on the searches until it can come up with “a more permanent strategy” to “tackle content attempting to discredit vaccinations.”
The co-founder and CEO of Pinterest is half-Jew, half-Chinese Ben Silbermann, who is married to an Indian woman, Divya Bhaskaran.
“We want Pinterest to be an inspiring place for people, and there’s nothing inspiring about misinformation,” a Pinterest spokesperson said. “That’s why we continue to work on new ways of keeping misleading content off our platform and out of our recommendations engine.”
According to the company, some of the most shared images on Pinterest related to vaccinations raised concerns about their safety. They also cast doubt on the endlessly-repeated mantra that vaccines are “safe and effective.”
“It’s better not to serve those results than to lead people down what is like a recommendation rabbit hole,” said Ifeoma Ozoma, Pinterest’s so-called “public policy and social impact manager.”
The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the ban, found that vaccine-related images are still showing up on the online boards although they will no longer turn up in search results.
The visual social media network, which allows people to pin images to a virtual pinboard, reported an estimated 250 million users every month as of September.
Pinterest’s move to comment publicly about its “vaccination policy” comes days after a Jewish lawmaker, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), sent a letter to Facebook and Google expressing concern about their platforms allowing free discussion of vaccine-critical information.
“As a Member of Congress who is deeply concerned about declining vaccination rates, I am requesting additional information on the steps that you currently take to provide medically accurate information on vaccinations to your users, and to encourage you to consider additional steps you can take to address this growing problem,” Schiff wrote to CEOs Mark Zuckerberg and Sundar Pichai.
YouTube, which is run by Google, said last month that they would work to recommend fewer videos with what they called “misinformation.”
Facebook said that the company is taking steps to limit the “spread of misinformation” on the platform.
“We are committed to accurate and useful information throughout Facebook. We remove content that violates our Community Standards, downrank articles that might be misleading, and show third-party fact-checker articles to provide people with more context,” a spokesman said last week.
“We have more to do, and will continue efforts to provide educational information on important topics like health,” he added.
Facebook, YouTube, and Google are also operated by Jewish billionaires.
