SocialFlow CEO, Jim Anderson joins News Nation: The Donlon Report, to comment on YouTube's suspension on Sen. Rand Paul's account for spreading COVID-19 mask misinformation. Jim explains how social media platforms will not tolerate content being shared which goes against CDC guidance, including masks and vaccine falsities. Amid the rise in misinformation online, Jim explains that platforms like YouTube are establishing their standards to avoid any nuances related to topics pertaining the general safety of the public. He relates that there's a difference between stating factual statement versus an opinion. "It's one thing to say, 'I don't believe vaccine or mask mandates are required' and it's also quite another thing to say, 'Vaccines and masks don't work.'"
