Former FDA Commissioner silenced on Twitter by Pfizer for suggesting....?
Hey, I also take Fox News with a big grain of salt. But this one.
Basically, a very credible guy (former FDA commissioner) suggests that natural COVID immunity is superior to vaccine immunity and Pfizer gets & him censored. The former commissioner didn't suggest folks shouldn't get vaccinated, only that people who'd had COVID previously should be exempted from gov mandates. Then again, if I was Pfizer and could get away with this crap why not?
Pfizer is run by a bunch of highly effective sociopaths. It's also America's most fined company with fraud fines in excess of $2 billion.
Pfizer board member Dr. Scott Gottlieb flagged tweets questioning COVID vaccine

Twitter files prove government was 'in the censorship business in a huge way': Matt Taibbi
The latest Twitter Files involving the tech giant's response to the pandemic puts a focus on Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a former FDA commissioner and sitting board member of prominent COVID vaccine manufacturer Pfizer.
Alex Berenson, a vocal COVID contrarian whose past commentary on the vaccine has received scorn by critics and praise by fans, was the latest to be granted access to Elon Musk's Twitter Files, publishing his findings on his "Unreported Truths" Substack newsletter.
Berenson shared an August 2021 email Gottlieb sent to Twitter's senior public policy manager Todd O’Boyle flagging a tweet written by former Trump administration official Dr. Brett Giroir, who had written "It's now clear #COVID19 natural immunity is superior to #vaccine immunity, by ALOT. There's no scientific justification for #vax proof if a person had prior infection."
"This is the kind of stuff that's corrosive," Gottlieb told O'Boyle. "Here he draws a sweeping conclusion off a single retrospective study in Israel that hasn't been peer reviewed. But this tweet will end up going viral and driving news coverage."

According to Berenson, O'Boyle forward Gottlieb's email to Twitter's "Strategist Response" team, writing "Please see this report from the former FDA commissioner."
Giroir's tweet was later slapped with a "misleading" label and blocked any ability to like or share the tweet, telling Twitter users "Learn why health officials recommend a vaccine for most people."
Gottlieb, a CNBC contributor who was a prominent media pundit in the height of the pandemic, flagged another tweet in Sept. 2021, one from Substack writer and COVID policy critic Justin Hart, which read "Sticks and stones may break my bones but a viral pathogen with a child mortality rate of ~0% has cost our children nearly three years of schooling."
"Why Gottlieb objected to Hart’s words is not clear, but the Pfizer shot would soon be approved for children 5 to 11, representing another massive market for Pfizer, if parents could be convinced Covid was a real threat to their kids," Berenson wrote.
Berenson noted in his report that Gottlieb has also targeted him days before he was permanently suspended from Twitter (Berenson was later reinstated in July 2022 after a legal battle with the tech giant).
In the August 2021 tweet Gottlieb flagged, Berenson was critical of Dr. Anthony Fauci.
"This is whats promoted on Twitter. This is why Tony needs a security detail," Gottlieb told Twitter at the time.
In reaction to the latest Twitter Files, Gottlieb issued his own thread suggesting the disclosed emails don't tell the whole story.
"In the past, I've raised concerns with Twitter related to the safety of me and others, and threats being made on the platform. This included direct as well as specific threats. Sometimes it included statements that I believed were purposely false and inflammatory," Gottlieb wrote Monday. "The selective disclosure of my private communications with Twitter stokes the threat environment. So does actions that empower people who’ve shown little restraint when it comes to purposeful vitriol. It instigates more menacing dialogue, with potentially serious consequences."
Gottlieb went on to share other emails he sent to Twitter flagging threatening tweets directed towards him and his family.
