Media Research Center president L. Brent Bozell III on Wednesday slammed Axios for claiming there was no “substantial evidence” of anti-conservative censorship online. Axios made the ridiculous claim in an article about how former President Donald Trump was suing several Big Tech CEOs.
Trump unveiled lawsuits against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google demanding the restoration of its social media accounts and sanctions against big tech companies. Liberal technological information point Axios responded by stating that “To date, Trump and other conservative critics have presented no substantial evidence that either platform is biased against the conservatives in its policies or their implementation. “
America free of expression too Axios burnt for denying Big Tech censorship by summing up some of the most infamous examples:
- Facebook and Twitter censored Hunter Biden’s story and intervened in the 2020 election
- Trump is banned from 10 Big Tech sites.
- Our database http://CensorTrack.org has already accumulated over 2,500 examples of censorship.
What Axios hasn’t told readers is that Facebook and Twitter aren’t revealing how their algorithms work. So that limits the way the Conservatives can react. But there’s no denying that Facebook and Twitter did actually censor Hunter Biden’s story ahead of the 2020 election.
It’s also undeniable that Facebook’s huge content guidelines lean heavily to the left, from references to how the genre is treated on the platform to restrictions on what users can and can’t post because of self-esteem. – saying “hate speech” rules. For example:
The site limits comments on “protected characteristics: race, ethnicity, national origin, disability, religious affiliation, caste, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity and serious illness”.
Big Tech censorship has already had a devastating and quantifiable impact on the course of American history as seen on MRC Free Speech America CensorTrack Database.
A post-election survey Media Research Center, led by McLaughlin & Associates, also sheds light on the impact of censorship on our nation. Poll showed 36% of Biden voters were NOT aware of evidence linking then-presidential candidate Joe Biden to potentially corrupt financial dealings with China through his son Hunter . Thirteen percent of those voters (or 4.6 percent of Biden’s total vote) said if they had known these facts, they would not have voted for the former vice president.
In a shocking story published by the New York Post on October 14, alleged emails from the son of Democratic presidential candidate Biden, Hunter Biden, reportedly exposed the alleged corrupt transactions of father and son in Ukraine. The story reportedly found emails from Ukrainian executive Vadym Pozharskyi, adviser to Burisma’s board of directors, thanking Hunter Biden for the opportunity to meet his father Joe Biden in Washington DC Twitter, follow the example of Facebook, responded by disabling the link, stating: “Warning: this link may be dangerous. “
Twitter single-handedly censored Trump 625 times between May 31, 2018 and January 4, 2021 before he was kicked from the platform. He has since refuse to allow him to return to the platform. Twitter did not censor Biden at all during the same period. Trump was banned from at least nine other platforms after the Jan.6 riot on the United States Capitol, in which the former president called for “peace.”
World leaders have condemned big tech companies for censorship Trump and the Conservatives. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has criticized Big Tech for behaving “like a sort of Spanish Inquisition”. French President Emmanuel Macron also torched Big Tech for choosing to “suddenly cut the mic” and silence “all platforms where it was possible to [former-President Donald Trump] and its supporters to express themselves ”, AP News reported on February 4.
