(TheIndependentStar.com) – Internet use creates a digital trail of everything you do, which can be great if you need to look back on something. It is not so good when someone else takes a peek into your digital dealings and digs up information you would rather keep private.
That is what happened to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, when his emails concerning COVID-19 became public. Within these communications are redacted discussions involving Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Part of the hidden information, according to Fauci, contains offers from Zuckerberg of money and resources to assist with the dissemination of public health messages and with other unspecified “things” Fauci needed.
When questioned about the emails by Kara Swisher on the Sway podcast on June 21, 2021, Fauci laughed and said there were “perfectly normal, perfectly innocent” explanations for everything in the messages. He further reiterated everything is “above board.” He was sure to mention he didn’t redact any part of the emails. Someone else did, and he doesn’t know who that was.
In response to Representative Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) remarks about concerns that Fauci and Zuckerberg worked together to suppress freedom of speech on the platform, Fauci said he never worked to censor COVID posts and called the idea a conspiracy theory.
It seems the doctor is simply dismissing everything connecting him to the overt censorship Facebook undertook throughout the pandemic.
