Pinterest is, therefore, taking a position of censoring more than 75% of the content posted by its users (which would obviously include medical doctors, and scientists) on the vaccine debate, choosing to accept only the extremist pro-vaccine position.
Guidry and her colleagues collected 800 pins and analyzed them to determine whether they are pro- or anti-vaccination.
The results revealed that 75 percent of all vaccine-related pins were negative.
But in doing so, they are also censoring those in the medical and scientific community who have valuable public information about the risks and safety of vaccines. Even the U.S. Government is required by law to publish certain negative vaccine information, such as the quarterly Department of Justice reports listing damages paid for vaccine injuries and deaths (find them here).
Will Pinterest censor this information also based on the premise that it is “misinformation” or “inaccurate by the medical community”?
