On Sunday, CNN host of Reliable Sources Brian Stelter told viewers that makers of memes regarding President Joe Biden.

"Disproving viral tweets is different than debunking a TV ad. Combating meme makers is different than rebutting newspaper columnists. And the memes are pretty powerful sometimes," said Stelter. "My suburban grocery stores never had empty shelves like that.

"But the messaging here saying that Biden is to blame for anything bad about the economy. It is clearly sticking to some degree," he continued.

Social media has taken to censoring memes with an increasing pace under the Biden administration. Most recently, the now widespread Let's Go Brandon meme born from a mishearing at a NASCAR race has had rap video banned from Youtube for spreading "medical misinformation.

"Let's Go Brandon" by Bryson Gray was banned from both Youtube and Instagram, with Youtube claiming that the song violated the platform’s policy.

It takes jabs at President Joe Biden's handling on the withdrawal from Afghanistan, as well as his administration's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
