MIT Technology Review


Reddit Moderator Censored MIT Technology Review article for "low quality" information: The moderators of r/coronavirus flagged an MIT Technology Review article entitled "Did the coronavirus leak from a lab? These scientists say we shouldn’t rule it out." The article explains the research and scientific opinions of several scientists, including Dr. Nikolai Petrovsky, who believes it is possible COVID-19 originated in a lab. However, the author also points out the many objections and criticisms of Petrovsky and his colleagues' research. Despite Media Bias Fact Check's top rating of MIT Technology Review, Reddit moderators labeled the post as "low quality" and removed the post, citing the subreddit's rules: "we require that users submit reliable, fact-based information."
