In a Monday appearance on Fox News Channel’s The Ingraham Angle, MRC founder and president Brent Bozell ripped into the liberal tech giants for censoring conservative thought on their social media platforms. “This is emerging, the greatest censorship of free speech worldwide in the history of man,” he exclaimed, referring to the findings of the blockbuster study conducted by the MRC’s Ashley Rae Goldenberg and Dan Gainor.
The Media Research Center (MRC) released an extensive report Monday
documenting the censorship of conservative voices by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google.
The release of this report follows Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s congressional testimony
last week where he was questioned about the growing concern that Facebook engages in
political bias and censorship.
Like it or not, social media is the communication form of the future — not just in the U.S., but worldwide. Just Facebook and Twitter combined reach 1.8 billion people. More than two-thirds of all Americans (68 percent) use Facebook. YouTube is pushing out TV as the most popular place to watch video. Google is the No. 1 search engine in both the U.S. and the world.
War is being declared on the conservative movement in this space and conservatives are losing — badly. If the right is silenced, billions of people will be cut off from conservative ideas and conservative media.
It’s the new battleground of media bias. But it’s worse. That bias is not a war of ideas. It’s a war against ideas. It’s a clear effort to censor the conservative worldview from the public conversation.
Former CNN host Piers Morgan tweeted on Tuesday that he had just watched the Chappaquiddick movie, which he described as “excellent” and “tough” on the late Ted Kennedy, but he also tried to diminish what the former U.S. Senator did during the events of July 18, 1969.
The Women’s March, and many in the media, are worrying about “sex workers” and “women’s rights” after BackPage.com disappeared. But not all women agree with them.
CNN claims in its advertisements that it's all about "Facts First." So what would explain fan-girling CNN articles like this one? "A brief history of how Parkland survivor David Hogg keeps schooling lawmakers on social media."
Talk about out of touch. Planned Parenthood recently discovered that Americans aren’t the biggest fans of a Disney princess ending the life of her unborn baby. On Tuesday, Planned Parenthood Keystone, located in Pennsylvania, mixed Disney with politics in a horrific way.
Whenever establishment press reporters drop their masks of objectivity, de facto Democratic Party operatives or even hardened leftists almost invariably appear. Tuesday, in the wake of Rex Tillerson's announced departure from the State Department, Erica Werner at the Washington Post dropped her guard, tweeting the following about the Trump administration's related personnel moves: "A Benghazi bomb-thrower will be SecState and a torture overseer will be CIA director — IF CONFIRMED BY THE SENATE."
The New York Times and their allies in the “reality-based press” have serious problems with their own versions of reality. Look no further than Times tech columnist Farhad Manjoo, who typed a column declaring that people would gain much more sanity from consuming their news from the print media and not the Internet. “ I turned off my digital news notifications, unplugged from Twitter and other social networks, and subscribed to home delivery of three print newspapers,” he wrote. But he lied. He did not unplug from Twitter in the slightest
On Friday, NBC's Ken Dilanian praised Washington Post editor Ruth Marcus on Twitter for her "courageous" column that defended the "right" of women to abort their unborn babies if they have Down syndrome. Dilanian underlined his agreement with Marcus after another Twitter user cited how his child has the genetic condition: "And you made the right choice for you—a choice to be celebrated and respected...She [Marcus] is affirming her legal right to make a different choice for her own family."
President Trump hosted Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven on Tuesday at the White House and, like with most foreign dignitary appearances, the two held a joint press conference featuring two reporters each from their countries. Right on cue, some liberals turned into snowflakes upon seeing Trump call on the Daily Caller’s Saagar Enjeti.
When Donald Trump was elected the U.S. president in 2016, he understood that the positive results of that victory came with negative aspects, such as becoming an easy target for liberals and late-night comedians. One of the best-known Trump impersonators is Alec Baldwin, the Democratic activist who has portrayed him on a regular basis during Saturday Night Live, the late-night NBC program where he first portrayed the president on October 1, 2016.
