    Twitter will restrict how users can interact with tweets from world leaders who violate its rules. The social media company led by CEO Jack Dorsey said in a Tuesday blog post that it will not allow users to like, reply, share or retweet offending tweets, but it will let users quote-tweet them so they can still express their own opinions. The San Francisco-based company has faced a backlash from critics over its hateful conduct and content moderation policies. Some organizations and users believe it should subject the tweets of leaders like President Trump to the same standards as everyone else...

    President Donald J. Trump is using every tool at his disposal in order to get his America First message across to the American people in the face of massive censorship of conservative speech by Big Tech. To that end, the 45th President opened a Twitch account, a relatively new streaming service used mostly by gamers to livestream video game play, first reported by Reuters. Twitch is owned by Amazon, which, like most of its Silicon Valley counterparts, is not known for its friendliness towards conservatives. The Jeff Bezos-owned giant has been known to ban and censor conservative books from its...

    A Facebook page run by the Arlington Heights-based Church of Christian Liberty was shut down for not complying with the social media company's policies, church officials said Friday. Church leaders say they weren't told exactly what led Facebook to ban the Christian Liberty Press page, but they speculate it has to do with expressing their Christian views.
  • HERE’S MORE PROOF on How Twitter is Censoring President Trump’s Account — TO HIDE HIS SUPPORT!

    We reported in July 2018 that Twitter has long been accused of censoring conservatives. Twitter was indeed censoring and shadowbanning the President of the United States, Donald Trump’s twitter account, @realDonaldTrump. In July there was even video proof that President Trump’s Twitter page is being censored. In a video tweeted in July 2017 by user @RightlyNews, a tweet by @realDonaldTrump ‘unliked’ itself after the user ‘liked’ the tweet by clicking the heart button. Strangely, the user clicked ‘like’ on two prior tweets by @AmericanVoterUS and @FoxNews with no ‘unlike’ issues. The user ‘liked’ President Trump’s tweet a total of four...

    Free speech is under attack by the Big Tech monopolies that dominate the internet. The flogging that Beto O’Rourke received during his Reddit “ask me anything” session this month perfectly underscored the distinction between a mainstream media and a genuinely free press. He gave Americans a chance to grill him about his pivot from a centrist Senate candidate to a radical presidential hopeful, and in contrast to the handling he has gotten from the media, they treated him like hamburger meat. No surprise there. Free expression can be edgy, brutal, irreverent, and sometimes downright offensive. I should know. My father...

    The recent controversy about China’s public censure of the NBA has opened American eyes to the longtime practice of many U.S. companies bending over backwards to appease the Chinese government, lest they face the financial cost of losing business in overseas markets.When the NBA apologized on Monday for the Houston Rockets’ general manager’s pro-Hong Kong tweet, and China retaliated by prohibiting broadcasts of NBA preseason games played in the country, Americans on the left and the right were united in anger that a U.S. institution would abandon principles so quickly for the sake of their wallet. But in reality,...

    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has accused Facebook of allowing President Trump to "mislead the American people" and demanded that "action be taken to silence his propagation of lies." Facebook's vice president of global affairs and communications, Nick Clegg, said that "it is our policy to treat speech from politicians as newsworthy content that should, as a general rule, be seen and heard. In open democracies, voters rightly believe that, as a general rule, they should be able to judge what politicians say themselves." However, DNC CEO Seema Nanda complained that "Facebook has the means to protect people from being...

    Whatever you do, don't call Austrian Green Party politician Eva Glawischnig-Piesczek a "corrupt oaf" or "lousy traitor of the people" on Facebook. If you do, the European Union (E.U.) has ruled that Facebook can be forced to take your comments down, regardless of where you are in the world. In all likelihood, you have no idea who Glawischnig-Piesczek even is, but you should definitely worry about today's ruling and how it impacts your ability to express your opinions about politicians online. I blogged about this case back in June when the E.U. was first considering it. Glawischnig-Piesczek is a retired...

    “South Park” content has reportedly been scrubbed off the internet in China after a controversial episode critical of Chinese censorship and the detention of Muslim minorities. The Hollywood Reporter noted on Monday that Chinese government censors have begun deleting every clip, episode and online platform of the show from its highly-regulated internet. Searches on the social media site Weibo turn up zero “South Park” content. Links to episodes and full seasons of the Comedy Central show on streaming service Youku are dead, according to the outlet. A message reading "According to the relevant law and regulation, this section is temporarily...

    Comedian Terrence K. Williams of “The Deplorables” comedy troupe, pleaded for help Friday amidst fears Twitter was targeting his account for his support of President Trump. A popular blue check conservative with over 600,000 followers, Williams received a legal warning from Twitter right before he was to go to the White House’s “Young Black Leadership Summit.” A little after 2pm on October 4, Williams tweeted, “TWITTERS LEGAL TEAM CONTACTED ME ON THE DAY I GO TO THE WHITE HOUSE! People want to take my account down because I said Schiff Should Resign, called out AOC & I support Pres @realDonaldTrump...

    The EU's top court has ruled that national courts in Europe can order Facebook and other online platforms to remove defamatory content worldwide (AFP Photo/DENIS CHARLET) More Luxembourg (AFP) - Facebook on Wednesday was dealt a major blow in the EU's top court, which ruled that national courts in Europe can order online platforms to remove defamatory content worldwide. The decision will be seen as a victory for EU regulators, who are ambitious to see US tech giants meet tightened European standards over hate speech and offensive content. Last week, the same court decided that Google was not legally compelled...

    The appearance of posters asking "what if Islam is not a religion of peace?" has inspired authorities to launch a nationwide search for the person who plastered these posters in a variety of prominent public places. The postings are considered especially insidious because "many are posted too high for offended parties to easily rip down." The Alberta Muslim Public Affairs Council is working with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police "to try to apprehend the miscreant or miscreants who have done this dastardly deed," said programs director Trent Daley. "They're playing with fire. Muslims are very sensitive to comments that cast...

    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is accusing Facebook of allowing President Trump to "mislead the American people" without facing any consequences. DNC CEO Seema Nanda made the allegations in a Tuesday interview with CNN just a week after the tech giant announced that it would not remove posts or advertisements from politicians if they happen to violate the company's community rules. Nanda told CNN that Facebook's move will allow Trump to "mislead the American people on their platform unimpeded." "We know that Trump has an utter disregard for the truth," she said. "Social media platforms have a responsibility to protect...

    The press office for Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, a Democrat, has been trying to get media outlets within the state to remove two stories posted online because they object to the source. Earlier this month, writer Derek Draplin reported that Polis had established a new office—the Office of the Future of Work—to research the state's changing economy and workforce and make policy recommendations to the governor's office. Draplin published the article in The Center Square, a nonprofit media outlet. The factually accurate story (read it here) quotes Polis praising the creation of the office, as well as a Colorado GOP...

    Now that he has dropped out of the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is free to indulge in his favorite pastime—shafting the citizens and residents who fall under his governance. The newest bit of tyranny from the Mayor is the enactment of an ordinance that imposes hefty fines on anyone using the phrase “illegal alien” or the word “illegals.” “We determined that our ongoing policy of shielding accused rapists and murderers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents is not enough to discourage attitudes of hostility toward individuals who have entered...

    A letter was sent Sunday to executives at the top broadcast and cable networks. Joe Biden's presidential campaign is sick of Rudy Giuliani's television appearances and wants them to stop. In a letter sent Sunday to top executives, producers and anchors at the broadcast and cable news networks, two key Biden advisors pressed the outlets to stop booking Giuliani, who has appeared frequently in the last few weeks to allege Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, of a pay-for-play in Ukraine. "We are writing today with grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread...

    A Palestinian rally set to take place Wednesday in front of Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate has caused a diplomatic storm as both the Israeli and US ambassadors to Germany called for a performance by Palestinian rappers Shadi Al-Bourini and Shadi Al-Najjar to be banned. Their pressure succeeded at the last hour with the Jüdische Allgemeine newspaper reporting, just 30 minuted before the rally was due to start, that the Berlin Senate Department for Home Affairs and Sport said it was banning the two rappers from appearing. The spokesperson for the Home Affairs and Sport Ministry, Martin Pallgen, said it would probably...

As a company that claim’s [sic] its purpose is ‘to serve the public conversation,’ the unjustified suspensions of these accounts is not only contrary to their stated purpose, but also silences the voice of a significant minority group,” the release said.
