THREAD: With time to reflect, & seeing Silicon Valley's censorship onslaught, I regret this tweet made in heat of moment.

Whether certain cable/YouTube outlets mislead audiences w/ dishonest claims lacking real evidence, they shouldn't be targeted...

Having been in-the-field at more Trump/right-wing rallies that I care to remember, I HAVE SEEN UP CLOSE the power of dangerous misinformation like "Stop the Steal" and Qanon. I personally think the media hosts and channels that push these things to be contrarian or get clicks...
are pretty horrible and doing great damage to an already severely misinformed and uninformed country. BUT if those hosts and channels are not directly calling for people to commit violence, it is their right to spew misinformation and/or conspiracies dressed up as journalism..
The reason I launched @StatusCoup with @JennElizabethJ was because there is an information war in this country in which the corporations who hijacked media outlets are winning. Now, more than ever, it is clear those corporations--who are in bed w/ Silicon Valley--are purging...
the FEW independent leftist outlets...including the VERY FEW IN-THE-FIELD reporting networks like @StatusCoup. Shame on @TheYoungTurks and other outlets with MUCH bigger platforms for not drawing more attention to this censorship binge.

THREAD: Hey @YouTube @TeamYouTube-now you've taken down @StatusCoup & @JonFarinaPhoto's HISTORIC footage from Capitol attack claiming it's SPAM or "advances false claims" of widespread fraud, errors, or glitches in the 2020 election.

ARE YOU KIDDING!?!?!? .....
Freelance journalist @JonFarinaPhoto put his health & safety (COVID + armed militia men storming Capitol) at risk to shoot historic footage of thousands brainwashed to try & "Stop the Steal." @StatusCoup FOR MONTHS DEBUNKED "false claims of widespread election fraud"....
I know your algorithm is meant to suppress independent media channels but let me break it down for you: JOURNALISTS shooting a violent mob brainwashed into thinking the election was stolen is not content that "advances" false claims of widespread election fraud...

NEWS THREAD: @amazon worker in Charlotte, NC just reached out (keeping anonymous to protect job). "They only recently switched the COVID-19 testers from regular workers to Medical technicians under the supervision of a Nurse Practitioner & put in plexiglass barriers at the...
testing stations (approximately 3 weeks ago). The worker filed a complaint about the lack of sanitized supplies at each work space. "The notifications about people who test positive [for COVID] are so numerous - sometimes 3 or 4 per day - they overpopulate my text messages...
"They are also strategically vague & do not specify where in the warehouse the person worked or what shift"...

THREAD UPDATE: Family of Poushawn Brown, @amazon worker who died after working in its COVID testing area, just spent hour on phone asking Amazon if she had life insurance.

Amazon made Poushawn's grieving 12 yr old daughter come on to give Poushawn's info

Christina, Poushawn's sister & legal guardian for Poushawn's daughter Gabrielle, called me toward end of call w/ @amazon officials (they spoke with several). I listened as she asked why a 12-year-old who doesn't know her mom's social security # is being asked to come on phone...
I listened as an @amazon employee told her "this is the process." Christina said that the 12-year-old doesn't know her mom's social security and other information and that Amazon should have been speaking directly w/ Poushawn's mother and sister...

NEWS: Here is @amazon COVID testing center at the Virginia warehouse that 38-year-old Poushawn Brown worked in for months before she suddenly died over a week ago. It is feet away from where employees work w/ no plexiglass/dividers to protect workers
This Virginia warehouse COVID testing center is also right next to the break room where workers congregate.
Here is my interview w/ Christina, the sister of Poushawn, who is now raising Poushawn's 12-year-old daughter Gabrielle

THREAD: Amazon worker Poushawn Brown, 38, was made to COVID test other workers for several months. She was not given N-95 mask, hazard pay, & social distancing was non-existent.

Her sister told me Poushawn came home recently w/ a headache. She died in bed next morning....
"There were multiple people that came in on different occasions who were sick, somebody came in and threw up right there; she said she wasn't going to clean it up, cleaning crew didn't want to clean it up—they never closed the warehouse [in Virginia]" sister Christina told me...
"Absolutely not, no shields, no face-masks, no nothing," Christina told me about what Amazon WASN'T providing. Amazon "kept saying they were going to give bonuses-they never gave no bonuses."

Now that 24/7 Trump media cycle is over (I think?), let's look at all the many critical stories corp media ignored for profit since 2016.

1) Flint doesn't have clean water or convictions nearly 7 years later
2) We're aiding Saudi Arabia in genocide of Yemen

3) The PPP small biz program was raided by multi-billion dollar corporate conglomerates who are...not small business
4) Trump and his Interior Department AGGRESSIVELY starting fracking and mining on Native American reservations across America

5) PFAS, a cancer-causing byproduct from the manufacturing of Teflon & non-stick cookware, is rampant in water bodies across America
6) We've been at war in Afghanistan for 20 years (Washington Post exposed generals were FORCED to spend millions per day--didn't matter what for)
