WH Press Secretary Jen Psaki elaborated during Friday's press briefing
on how the White House is partnering with Facebook to stop the spread of COVID-19 "misinformation."
On Thursday, Psaki said
the White House is working in coordination with Facebook to flag "problematic" posts that spread "disinformation" about the COVID-19 vaccine.
Psaki said one "false narrative" they plan to go after is the claim that the COVID-19 vaccine causes infertility.
"You all make decisions just like the social media platforms take decisions even though they are private and different," she told members of the media. "We are regularly making sure social media platforms sure of the latest narratives dangerous to public health that we and many other Americans are seeing across all of social and traditional media."
"It shouldn't come as a surprise that we're in touch with social media, just like we're in regular touch with all of you and your media outlets about areas where we have concern," she said.
She also said the State Department has found that "Russia and China have promoted their own vaccines through messaging that undermines Western-origin vaccines and health development programs."
