Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has accused The New York Times of coordinating with Twitter to push for her suspension from the platform.
Thursday morning, she publicly shared an eerie email she’d received earlier that day from Davey Alba, a technology “reporter” for the Times.
In the tweet, Alba, who purports to be a “journalist,” drew attention to another tweet Greene had posted the previous afternoon.
That original tweet may be seen below:
I have talked to multiple women who say they miscarried healthy pregnancies after taking the #COVID19 vaccine.
Not only miscarriages, but also reporting blood clots and heavy & irregular periods after taking the Experimental Use Covid vaccine.
Stop vaccine mandates!

In the tweet above, the congresswoman simply shared anecdotal information about “multiple women” she’s spoken with who “miscarried healthy pregnancies” after receiving the coronavirus vaccine.
In the email to Greene, Alba basically accused the congresswoman of spreading so-called “misinformation” and predicted that her account will likely soon be suspended again.
“Twitter is likely to take enforcement action on Ms. Greene’s account for coronavirus misinformation. It would be her fourth strike, meaning she would have one more strike to go before potentially being permanently suspended from the platform. Would Ms. Greene want to respond to this in a statement?” the so-called “journalist” wrote.
The congresswoman was taken aback by the email. How, she asked in her second tweet, would the Times know that her Twitter account “is about to be suspended?”
My account is NOT suspended.
What kind of relationship does the NYT and Twitter have?
Do they coordinate suspending people like me and news stories?
Is someone paying for that?

“How would the @nytimes know that my @Twitter account is about to be suspended? My account is NOT suspended. What kind of relationship does the NYT and Twitter have? Do they coordinate suspending people like me and news stories? Is someone paying for that? Why?” the tweet reads.
What’s known is that Alba is a “technology reporter” who covers “online disinformation and its global harms.” Under her byline at the Times are endless stories about so-called “disinformation” and “misinformation.”
What’s also known is that she’s a left-wing zealot with a history of trying to cancel people, including her own colleagues.
Take the case of former Times reporter Donald G. McNeil. After writing for the paper for nearly 50 years, he was essentially pushed out earlier this year for having used the “n-word” within the context of a discussion about the word itself.

The discussion happened two years ago, and at the time he was promptly “disciplined.” However, the story reemerged publicly this post January, triggering an avalanche of outrage from the paper’s left-wing zealots.
Specifically, the Times’ union submitted a letter demanding a formal investigation. But the union abstained from publicly calling for him to be disciplined again “so it didn’t run afoul of labor laws that require unions to represent their members,” according to the Washington Free Beacon.
But behind the scenes, Alba, a member of the union, reportedly coordinated with other union members to seek his ouster.
“[I]t was members of the union, including Times reporter Davey Alba and cultural critic Amanda Hess, according to several people familiar with the pressure campaign, who were leading the charge,” according to the Beacon.
That charge proved successful, and McNeil was soon replaced by a left-wing zealot who’s been accused of producing garbage reporting:
Veteran @NYT science reporter Donald McNeil Jr’s Feb 2020 story suggesting CoVID-19 could become a pandemic won a Pulitzer Prize on Fri. The NYT’s social justice mob forced him out this year. Their loss. Replaced by reporter who argued Wuhan lab leak story was ‘racist’

The NYT — for the stupidest and pettiest reasons — fired their star science reporter whose reporting on COVID had been stellar and replaced him with @apoorva_nyc, whose work has been exactly the opposite. Just a complete debacle that captures so many contemporary pathologies. https://t.co/PUtvzrwbX4

Can someone explain to me why it’s racist to wonder if a virus escaped from a Chinese lab, but it’s not racist to insist that it infected humans because of Chinese wet markets? If anything, isn’t the latter more racist?
Also, isn’t the relevant question: *what happened*? Or no? pic.twitter.com/vSqqJnehf7

And so it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that Alba’s intent in emailing Greene wasn’t just to seek information for her so-called “journalism.”
It’s possible, in fact, that her intention had been to let the congresswoman know that she’s her next target …
