Major lawsuit filed against legacy media conglomerates for colluding to censor views critical of COVID-19 policies, vaccines
01/13/2023 // Arsenio Toledo // Views

Independent media outlets, health freedom activists and respected medical professionals have banded together to file a lawsuit against some of the world's largest legacy media conglomerates over their collusion to silence small competitors critical of Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and vaccine policies.

This first-of-its-kind lawsuit claims that the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), the Washington PostReuters and the Associated Press (AP) have violated antitrust laws and the constitutionally-protected First Amendment of smaller publishers. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas – Amarillo Division, seeks damages in the millions of dollars. (Related: Lawsuit uncovers bombshell connection between CDC and social media companies to bury COVID-19 truth from public.)

According to the lawsuit, these four mainstream media outlets partnered with Big Tech firms to "collectively censor online news" about COVID-19 that did not align with official narratives regarding the pandemic and the vaccines.

"All of us have gained ground in reaching people with the truth – it saves lives, just the truth," said Charlene Bollinger in an interview on Newsmax. Bollinger, along with her husband Ty, has spent decades educating Americans about alternative medicine. Millions of people reached out to them on social media platforms to read and watch their views on medical matters before being deplatformed.

The Bollingers were labeled among the "disinformation dozen" by the administration of President Joe Biden and were maligned by the mainstream media for raising relevant questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccines.


Legacy media colluded with Big Tech to keep alternative views on COVID-19 out of social media, the internet

According to the lawsuit, by March 2020, the BBCWashington PostReuters and AP had come together to create what is called the "Trusted News Initiative" (TNI) with Big Tech firms, including Twitter, Meta, Microsoft and Google, to exclude smaller and independent media outlets from being able to gain any kind of traction online.

On Dec. 10 2020, signatories of the TNI agreed to focus their efforts on combating the spread of supposedly "harmful disinformation" regarding the COVID-19 vaccines. According to the lawsuit, this coordinated effort is, by definition, an unlawful "group boycott" intended to damage the ability of smaller publishers to compete or even survive in the free market.

"[Legacy media] were upset because we were taking some of their traffic, some of their viewers [and] people were starting to question them," said Bollinger. "They didn't like that, so they said, 'We've got to come together. We're normally competitors, but let's form a trusted partnership.'"

Collectively, signatories of the TNI hold 90 percent of the overall social media market, 90 percent of the social networking market, 75 percent of the video hosting market and over 90 percent of the search engine market.

"This lawsuit is about preserving our free speech rights as Americans and holding those involved in violating antitrust laws accountable like the TNI," said Bollinger. "My husband and I remain steadfast in our commitment to highlighting the well-documented risks of taking the COVID-19 vaccine and the myriad of dangers facing those who were misled by the TNI media partnership."
