ベレンソンは先月、彼とツイッターが合意に達したと発表した。 “相互に受け入れ可能な解決策” それが彼のTwitterアカウントの復活を促した.
After previously hinting that バイデン政権 may have played a role in his deplatforming from Twitter, Berenson published screenshots of an April 2021 exchange between Twitter employees regarding a meeting it had with White House officials.
“They had one really tough question about why Alex Berenson hasn’t been kicked off the platform,” the Twitter employee wrote on the workplace communication platform Slack.
別の投稿で, a Twitter employee wrote, “They really wanted to know about Alex Berenson. Andy Slavitt suggested they had seen data viz that had showed he was the epicenter of disinfo that radiated outwards to the persuadable public.”
Slavitt served as a White House COVID adviser until he left the Biden administration in June 2021.
Berenson confirmed with Fox News Digital that he obtained the Slack communications as part of his settled lawsuit against Twitter but declined to elaborate. He did add, “I hope and expect to have more information to report soon.”
On his “Unreported Truths” on Substack, Berenson teased “other reporters” had pressured Twitter to suspend him based on documents he has seen, 書き込み, “I will report on those in the future.”
Neither the White House nor Twitter immediately responded to Fox News’ コメントのリクエスト.
As Berenson noted, President Biden accused Facebook of “人を殺す” 7月に 2021 for allowing so-called coronavirus “誤報” to be shared on its platform. そしてそれ “A few hours after Biden’s comment, Twitter suspended my account for the first time.”

8月 2021 tweet that benched the former New York Times journalist from Twitter was regarding how the virus was still transmissible even after vaccination, suggesting that calling it a “ワクチン” wasn’t actually accurate.
“It doesn’t stop infection. Or transmission. Don’t think of it as a vaccine,” Berenson told his Twitter followers at the time. “Think of it – せいぜい – as a therapeutic with a limited window of efficacy and terrible side effect profile that must be dosed IN ADVANCE OF ILLNESS. And we want to mandate it? Insanity.”
As part of its settlement with Berenson, Twitter acknowledged his tweets “should not have led to his suspension at that time.”
“I’m pleased to be back on Twitter, as it is a vital forum for journalism and free speech,” Berenson told Fox News last month. “I plan to use the service as I always have, to publish accurate and truthful information on topics of public interest. And occasionally to rant about the Mets and Nets.”
Berenson, の作者 “Pandemia” そしてその “Unreported Truths” series about the response to COVID, had long been an outspoken skeptic of the effectiveness of the coronavirus vaccine.
His reinstatement onto Twitter caught the attention of Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is currently in a legal battle against Twitter after attempting to withdraw from his buyout deal with the tech giant.
Musk’s aspirations for Twitter to uphold free speech principles have been criticized by the left and members of the media, who have expressed support for silencing claims they believe are “誤報” about COVID and the election they oppose and want to ban various forms of hate from the platform.
