The Daily Beast reports:
Alex Berenson, the former New York Times reporter who became the leading face of COVID-19 disinformation, has been permanently suspended from Twitter. “The account … has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation rules,” a Twitter spokesperson told NBC News.
Berenson repeatedly used the platform to sow doubt about COVID-19 treatments that have proven safe and effective, including the vaccines. When his claims were attacked on Twitter, he would take his falsehoods to Fox News, repeatedly making appearances on shows like Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Read the full article. Berenson last appeared on JMG in July when he advocated for getting infected with COVID on purpose. At this writing he’s continuing to post from a second verified account, from which he has removed his name and photo.
