As we previously reported, a fresh round of Twitter Files were released this week that contained what independent journalist Bari Weiss, who was given the files by Twitter CEO Elon Musk, called the “Secret Blacklists.”


Among the revelations Weiss dropped was the fact that Twitter deliberately suppressed the Twitter account of Stanford University Professor of Medicine Jay Bhattacharya, who had been a vocal opponent of shutting down schools during the coronavirus pandemic. A screengrab showed that Dr. Bhattacharya’s page was placed on a “trends blacklist,” which ensured that nothing he wrote would ever be seen by the masses nor catch fire on the social media platform, effectively suppressing his opinion:

In response, Bhattacharya appeared on Laura Ingraham’s program on Fox News Thursday to discuss what he and others already suspected was happening.

During the interview, Bhattacharya said he wanted to know exactly who it was at Twitter who made the decision to effectively shadow-ban his account. Further, Bhattacharya stated that he was part of a lawsuit filed against the Biden administration by the attorney generals in Missouri and Louisiana, something he revealed, “uncovered tremendous evidence that there were federal agencies that were directing social media companies about what to censor and who to censor.”


He said if that was indeed the case that it was a “direct violation of my civil rights” and the First Amendment, and he said that should outrage everyone.

Later during the segment, Bhattacharya took aim at media darling Dr. Anthony Fauci, for who the sun rose and set among the left during the pandemic despite his many lies.

“I wasn’t saying anything that was threatening people other than maybe Tony Fauci,” Bhattacharya quipped while clarifying that he was not threatening him “physically, just his ideas.”

Bhattacharya went on to say that he was born in India but raised in America since he was a child and that he’d always seen America as a beacon of light, “but it really hasn’t felt that way these past three years” as dissenting views in the medical community were repeatedly quashed at the direction of the federal government, with far-reaching implications on science, public health policy, and free speech.

Very illuminating discussion. Watch:

On his Twitter page, Bhattacharya wrote that he was, “Still trying to process my emotions on learning that @twitter blacklisted me.”


What would “keep me up tonight,” he went on to say, is the “censorship of scientific discussion permitted policies like school closures and a generation of children were hurt” as a result.

And not just hurt, as Ingraham said in her commentary, but very likely killed – all because the prevailing government narrative had to be abided by no matter the cost … even if it meant at the expense of not just the First Amendment rights of American citizens but worse, human lives.

As to the information he says the legal teams in Missouri and Louisiana uncovered, stay tuned. Because if what he says is true, that will absolutely blow the lid off of everything, with the harsh glare of the sunlight once and for all laying bare the absolute rot that resides underneath all the government censorship we’ve been subjected to for the last three years.

I can’t wait.
