TUCKER CARLSON (HOST):  Many of the people now in charge of your life have no relevant qualifications to justify the power they now hold. They just fell into it, as people do. What's infuriating is that they won't admit this. They pretend that the control they wield is part of the natural order of things, somehow. That they deserve it, that they're God. Most of them forget that not so long ago, they worked in the marketing department. 

Here's Susan Wojcicki announcing that she plans to censor any information about COVID that she doesn't like, even if that information has been posted by physicians who are treating COVID.


The point is, there was nothing kooky or inaccurate about Rand Paul's video on masks. It was true, it was provably true, people who know what they're talking about agree with it, including the people in charge of our COVID response.  But, it was censored anyway. And the fact that YouTube did censor it anyway is a scandal. It's one of many such scandals playing out in our country right now.
