Amazon gets urged by senator to deplatform items that don't fit leftist narrative
Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren urged Amazon to remove books and other products that spread “COVID-19 misinformation” from its online marketplace.
Warren identified a variety of products that are among the top results when consumers search for certain items and books about COVID-19 in a letter sent Wednesday to Amazon CEO Andy Jassy. The products promote “false and misleading” conspiracy theories about the coronavirus, Warren alleged.
“This pattern and practice of misbehavior suggests that Amazon is either unwilling or unable to modify its business practices to prevent the spread of falsehoods or the sale of inappropriate products — an unethical, unacceptable, and potentially unlawful course of action from one of the nation’s largest retailers,” Warren wrote.
“On the heels of the [Food and Drug Administration’s] full approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and amidst the rapid spread of the Delta variant, it is vital that Americans have access to accurate information about COVID-19 prevention and treatment — and about the safety and effectiveness of vaccines in particular,” Warren continued.
Warren’s staff conducted numerous searches using coronavirus terms on the Amazon marketplace during the week of Aug. 22. Among the product recommendations were repeatedly products that spread misinformation, Warren told Jassy in the letter.
The top results were often books based on “falsehoods about COVID-19 vaccines and cures.”
