SAN FRANCISCO, CA – America’s Frontline Doctors (AFD), a conservative political group that has been accused of spreading misinformation about COVID-19, announced via an email newsletter on Wednesday that several doctors affiliated with the group have filed a lawsuit against Twitter claiming they were unfairly censored and banned from the social media platform for their views on the coronavirus pandemic.
Dr. Robert Malone is a physician and biochemist who is one of the developers of the mRNA technology that is the basis for today’s coronavirus vaccines. On December 29, 2021, Twitter permanently suspended Malone from its platform, citing “repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy.”
Malone, along with two other doctors who have also received Twitter removals for allegedly spreading COVID-19 falsehoods – Brian Tyson and Peter McCullough – have banded together in a lawsuit that claims they were censored, according to AFD.
“Affiliate physicians Tyson and McCullough along with Dr. Malone have been gagged and banned from Twitter to prevent them from sharing the truth,” the AFD newsletter read. “Besides being brilliant, brave voices who have collectively saved thousands of lives, what do all of these physicians have in common? They, along with countless others, have been silenced. Silenced by the media, threatened by medical boards, and banned from Twitter for sharing lifesaving information that did not go against Twitter’s ‘disinformation’ guidelines.”

Big Tech is using a content filtering system for online censorship.

NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is ‘missing context’ or stories their editors deem “not in your best interest” – regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate. They also work with payment processors and ad-networks to cut off revenue streams to publications they rate poorly by their same bias standards. This should be criminal in America.

However, if the lawsuit brought by Malone, Tyson, and McCullough was merely over the fact that they were banned from Twitter it would have no merit, as the First Amendment only prohibits the government from censoring free speech, not private entities. Instead, the lawsuit alleges that Twitter failed to follow their own established policies regarding handing out lifetime bans.
“Drs. Malone, Tyson, and McCullough have teamed up and have sued Twitter for breach of contract because Twitter did not follow their own ‘disinformation’ guidelines, which include six warnings, before banning them from their platform,” AFD’s newsletter said. “The doctors will all move for an award of attorneys’ fees under the California Code of Civil Procedure, Section 1021.5 for enforcement of an important right affecting the public interest. This means that if the doctors are successful, Twitter may be ordered to pay all of their attorneys’ fees for the lawsuit.”
