Media Company Suspended On Twitter For Quoting Lawmaker: Report

Media company Grabien was reportedly suspended on Twitter after it posted a quote from a congressman.

Grabien shared comments from Rep. Biggs about COVID-19 treatments.

“Rep. Biggs: Big Pharma Won’t Consider Therapeutics Like HCQ or Ivermectin Because of Economic Interests,” the tweet that led to the ban read, with a link to a video of Bigg’s comments.

Twitter allegedly told Grabien that its account had been suspended for “violating the policy on spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott said the ban was  “next-level Twitter absurdity.”

“Obviously, in this case, quoting an elected leader on an issue that matters to everyone is important and newsworthy, regardless of whether you agree,” he added. “(And I can’t help but add that his basic point was once mainstream among progressives.)”

Elliot said he appealed the decision but does not expect much.

“…I have no confidence in Twitter doing the right thing and acknowledging this tweet did not violate its terms & conditions,” he said.

As NewsBusters reported earlier last week, vaccine scientist Dr. Robert Malone was also suspended for his tweets about the virus:

“Malone has repeatedly voiced his concerns over the COVID-19 vaccines, based on his own scientific knowledge of the interaction between vaccines and viruses as well as independent studies. He expressed particular concern about COVID vaccines for children based on studies, including one from Hong Kong that said 1 in every 2,700 boys vaccinated with Pfizer’s Comirnaty would develop myocarditis. Malone further told The Epoch Times that natural immunity is better protection from COVID than vaccines. His last tweet reportedly included a video saying Pfizer vaccines cause more illness than they prevent.”
