Twitter suspends John Solomon’s account for story on “peer-reviewed” COVID study
Tweet links to JTN story about study showing Pfizer vaccine converts to DNA, which appears to contradict CDC findings
Twitter on Thursday suspended the account of Just the News CEO and Editor John Solomon for tweeting a story about a peer-reviewed study on COVID vaccines published in a respected medical journal by a research university that has worked with the both National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization.
The platform claimed the story was “violating the policy on spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19” even though the story quoted federal agencies’ context for the issue raised by the story.
The offending @JohnSolomonReports post was a link to a Just the News story posted Thursday morning with the headline “Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine converts to DNA inside human liver cells, according to new study” and the url: https://t.co/q4PfQSa6TD.
The story is about a study by Swedish scientists that found when the Pfizer vaccine’s mRNA enters human liver cells it triggers a number of reactions that yield a reverse transcription that turns the mRNA into spike DNA and notes the story was first reported by another news outlet.
The peer-reviewed study was published in the respected medical journal Current Issues in Molecular Biology. and was conducted by Lund University in Sweden, a medical research institute that has done contract work with NIH and often cited by the WHO.
The story also points out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said the reverse transcription process would not happen, as also reported by at least one other news outlet.
Solomon appealed to Twitter executives to lift the suspension.
“If journalists can’t accurately quote a peer-reviewed study in a respected medical journal written by a university that has been trusted by NIH and WHO without being censored, then the First Amendment has been thoroughly gutted by Big Tech censors who want to substitute their version of truth for honest coverage of disputes in science and public policy,” he said.
“There is nothing inaccurate or harmful in the story, which includes dissenting views and context from the CDC. I ask Twitter to review the article and the underlying information and lift its suspension immediately,” he added. “Accusing a journalist falsely of ‘spreading misleading and potentially harmful information’ without a basis is defamatory and suspending the account without cause simply erodes Twitter’s standing in the market of free ideas.”
Twitter also blocked Solomon’s account a few months ago for an accurate story, then reversed course and said the action was in error.
