“Facebook may be actively snooping on private messages of select individuals, the New York Post alleges. The platform suspended the account of FBI whistleblower Steve Friend’s wife after she sent a message in response to a parent’s post asking if her husband needed support.

Friend made a whistleblower complaint with the Department of Justice inspector general, alleging that the FBI had been manipulating case-file management to inflate the threat of domestic terrorism and using excessive and illegal force against the Biden administration’s political opponents.

Last week, Friend was suspended by the FBI after he refused to participate in what he felt was an unnecessarily heavy-handed raid of the home of some who committed a misdemeanor during the January 6 riot last year.

Friend’s wife’s Facebook account was suspended after she responded to a post by Moms for Liberty, an organization that advocates for the rights of parents, and has been censored by Facebook before.”

Analyst Comment: Is the FBI directly coordinating censorship with Facebook, much like the CDC was doing with Covid?
