In an exclusive interview with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Wednesday, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt wanted to know how the company went about suspending the account of deranged internet conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. And using that as a springboard, Holt wanted to know if President Trump violated the rules, like Jones did, with his “dog” tweet about former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman.
In recent days, the stock prices for major social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter have taken truly massive hits, which were partly driven by the issue of censoring conservative political speech. Last week, Facebook took a colossal $120 billion stock hit (which was the largest ever in history). And during an appearance on the Fox Business Network’s After the Bell, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell predicted that such hits were “going to get worse.”
The liberal media love to pretend that their news cycles are dictated entirely by President Trump’s Twitter feed. It’s their number one excuse when average Americans complain they’re not covering other and arguably more important topics. But oh how quickly their fascination with his account fades when he mentions something they rather keep hidden. For Thursday’s evening broadcasts on ABC, CBS, and NBC (as well as on Spanish-language Univision and Telemundo) it was Twitter allegedly “shadow banning” conservative accounts.
RESTON, VA -- Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement Wednesday in response to a report from Vice News that found Twitter is ‘shadow banning” prominent conservative leaders and members of Congress -- impeding users’ access to their public profiles.

Liberal news sources appear to have a problem with more than just InfoWars: now they’re going after the Daily Caller. According to The Wall Street Journal, during an off-the-record meeting with Facebook last week, editors from BuzzFeed and HuffPost took offense to even including the Daily Caller in the meeting.
In a mid-Tuesday morning tweet, ABC News chief foreign correspondent and longtime Supreme Court correspondent Terry Moran engaged in some mansplaining and anti-Fox News chicanery by voicing displeasure with Fox News @ Night host Shannon Bream for claiming that she left her spot Monday night outside the Supreme Court because she “felt threatened” by the “very volatile” “mood” by the far-left protesters.
Late Monday night, Fox News @ Night host and Supreme Court correspondent Shannon Bream tweeted that she had to flee her live shot from outside the Supreme Court after having “felt threatened” by the “very volatile” “mood” by the far-left protesters having conniptions over President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for the nation’s high Court.
So. What do we have here? First, Facebook censors a posting of a segment from the Declaration of Independence as “hate speech.” Next, actor James Woods loses his agent because of his conservative and pro-Trump views. Then last but not least, when it comes clear that the liberals of Martha’s Vineyards are turning socially on their old friend and neighbor Alan Dershowitz, the Morning Joe crowd snarks it up and says he “has to suffer the consequences” for his views.
Over the weekend, MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough took to Twitter and suggested the Trump administration was “banning” the American Red Cross from tending to the kids separated from their families at the border. After the Red Cross clarified what was going on, Scarborough’s Trump Derangement Syndrome flared up and he accused the international relief charity of shilling for the President.
An Israeli Minister has demanded that Twitter police the official Hamas and Hezbollah social media accounts for being “actively engaged in inciting and executing attacks against innocent civilians.”
This summer, Facebook is debuting its own slate of original programming, funded by the tech giant. Out of the seven original shows announced, five have clear left-wing agendas.
Google’s search results temporarily described the ideology of the California Republican Party as “Nazism” on Thursday. In a statement, a Google spokesperson told the Media Research Center the results were due to an act of “vandalism” on Wikipedia.
