The YouTube Files unveiled that the White House communicated with anti-free speech YouTube to censor content related to COVID-19 and vaccines, marking yet another attempt to stifle the free speech of Americans.

Jordan shared screenshots of an email revealing YouTube's communications with the White House. "On April 12, 2021, Rob Flaherty—Biden's Director of Digital Strategy—emailed Google wanting to know how Google could better 'crack down on vaccine misinformation' and to discuss 'ways the White House (and our COVID experts) can partner in your product work,'" Jordan wrote, quoting Flaherty's email detailing his discussion with Google, YouTube's parent company.

Another screenshot revealed that it was very evident to Google that the White House was critical of its censorship policies related to COVID-19 virus and vaccine related information.

"Rob's questions were very YT focused" and Flaherty "dug in on our decision making for borderline content" one Google employee explained according to a screenshot of an internal email shared by Jordan.

According to Jordan, YouTube's Government Affairs team warned the platform's product team about what appeared to be the administration's intention. "There is a very high degree of interest coming from the White House regarding vaccine misinfo/vaccine hesitancy and our work around borderline content," read one email. "Unfortunately, the role of tech in addressing vaccine hesitancy is about to come under a massive spotlight particularly as the supply of the vaccine is soon set to outpace demand." She also noted

The email went on to again stress that the White House was specifically interested in "borderline content" and whether YouTube was elevating so-called authoritative sources.  In the following weeks, Google and YouTube's Government Affairs Team repeatedly urged the product team to brief the White House "to prevent anything from potentially spiraling out of control," the screenshot shared by Jordan showed. 

In one email communication, a Google employee warned that White House staff were "familiar with many of [YouTube's] policies and efforts" on removing certain content and "continue[d] to have questions on the raise/reduce efforts."

Ultimately, Google decided to prioritize working with the Biden Administration. As Jordan put it, "The company needed this meeting ASAP" since "the company was seeking 'to work closely with [the Biden] administration on multiple policy fronts and needed to appease them."
