Twitter Suspends Conservative News Company After They Shared Congressman’s Fox News COVID-19 Interview

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) was on Fox News discussing vaccinations, Ivermectin, and “big pharma” when the @GrabienMedia Twitter account was suspended on Friday for, sharing that interview.

In a tweet, Grabien founder Tom Elliott announced the account’s suspension and supplied a copy of the offending message and related Twitter discussion.

For breaking COVID-19’s “policy on distributing incorrect and possibly dangerous information,” a notification was sent to Grabien stating that the tweet had to be removed.

What we’re looking for is removal of material which may represent a danger to people’s health, particularly anything which goes directly against authoritative sources of global and local public health information,” it adds.

This tweet “clearly didn’t breach any guidelines,” according to Elliott, and an appeal has been filed.

The tweet has been removed from the timeline of the account. Big Pharma will not consider HCQ or Ivermectin because of economic interests, as seen in the picture.

Ingraham Angle’s segment that was mentioned in the tweet is embedded below. During the interview, Rep. Biggs discussed the pharmaceutical business and COVID vaccinations with guest presenter Lisa Boothe.

Grabien News still has the whole video available online.

As Elliott pointed out in a series of tweets in response to the event, “Obviously, in this situation, citing an elected leader on an issue that concerns to everyone is significant and newsworthy, regardless of whether you agree”

Elliott said he has appealed the ruling, but he had little faith in the process.

“The post so plainly didn’t breach any regulations, I felt it preferable to offer Twitter a chance to explain its error,” said Grabien’s Elliott. According to “The account remains suspended since they haven’t replied to my appeal.”

Tweeting an elected official’s views on the pharmaceutical business is clearly a violation of Twitter’s guidelines, and I’d love to see them try to explain why. Accounts engaged in regular journalism are practically being threatened with suspension, he said. Speaking of slippery slopes, this is just the latest illustration of how speech regulations usually lead to far broader restrictions than first stated. Everyone loses in the end.”
