    President Trump has been censored by Facebook and Twitter 65 times since May 2018, while Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has gone completely unchecked by the social media giants, according to a new study by the Media Research Center. “Big Tech has caused serious damage to President Donald Trump’s ability to be heard on social media. Twitter and Facebook have censored the president’s social media accounts and the accounts belonging to his re-election campaign at least 65 times. In contrast, the companies have not censored... Joe Biden and his campaign accounts. At all,” MRC analysts Corinne Weaver and Alec Schemmel...
  • CNN's Brian Stelter says Twitter, Facebook aren't doing enough to censor rightwing 'nastiness'

    CNN's leftwing media reporter Brian Stelter suggested that social media giants aren't doing enough to censor what he describes as "disinformation." On the latest episode of BBC Radio 4's "The Media Show," Stelter participated in a panel discussion about the explosive New York Post report on Hunter Biden's emails and Twitter and Facebook's efforts to suppress the spread of it on its platforms. Axios media reporter Sara Fischer began the conversation about big tech companies being warned by the intelligence community to look out for "illegally hacked or illegally obtained" information that is leaked to the press ahead of the...

    Republican criticism of Facebook is that the social network suppresses conservative speech, though the company has long rejected such allegations. But a new report, via NYPost, reveals at least half a dozen "Chinese nationals" are working with the social media company to develop complex algorithms and neural networks for censoring newsfeeds. Lately, Republicans have been infuriated by Facebook and Twitter for their limitations, or in some cases, the complete banning of a NYPost article last week about Hunter Biden, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son. "You can see [their] power in real-time with this attempt to censor, to throttle...

    Facebook and Twitter's frantic attempts to stop the spread of the New York Post's Hunter Biden story didn't prevent the article from becoming the top story about the election on those platforms last week, according to data from NewsWhip. Why it matters: The data shows that even swift, aggressive content suppression may not be swift or aggressive enough to keep down a story with as much White House backing and partisan fuel as this one. By the numbers: The Post's story generated 2.59m interactions (likes, comments, shares) on Facebook and Twitter last week — more than double the next biggest...

    A contract employee for the U.S. Marshals Service has been suspended from work after posting a burning Black Lives Matter flag on his personal Facebook page. Jeff Carlson, a retired Aberdeen Police Department and school resource officer, was suspended from his contracted position as a security officer at the District of the South Dakota Federal Courthouse. Carlson is employed by Walden Security, a company that provides security services for commercial and government properties. He was suspended after the U.S. Marshals Service was made aware of the “racially-charged social media post,” according to the public affairs office for the federal law...
  • China is Using Companies like Twitter to Interfere in the Election: Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter’s businesses are tethered to the Communist regime

    Last year, Amazon was forced to shut down its marketplace business in the People’s Republic of China. Amazon’s defeat followed that of a long line of Big Tech players who had tried to make a go of it in China and failed miserably. China’s economy is built to boost domestic businesses and foreign exports, with some needed imports, by companies linked to the Communist Party. And no matter how politically correct Amazon may try to be, it can never join that club. But Amazon’s business in China isn’t done. To a large degree, Amazon’s business is China. Behind the smiling...

    Facebook is demonetizing the Christian, political satire page “The Babylon Bee” after they published an article satirizing Sen. Mazie Hirono’s comments during the Amy Coney Barrett hearings in a fictional depiction. The Bee’s CEO Seth Dillon announced the demonetization on Tuesday in a tweet, claiming that the big tech company pulled down the article based on a “regurgitated joke from a Monty Python movie.” “So after a manual review, Facebook says they stand by their decision to pull down this article and demonetize our page. I’m not kidding,” he wrote. “They say this article ‘incites violence.’ It’s literally a regurgitated...

    A little-known Democratic super PAC backed by some of Silicon Valley’s biggest donors is quietly unleashing a torrent of television spending in the final weeks of the presidential campaign in a last-minute attempt to oust President Donald Trump, Recode has learned. The barrage of late money — which includes at least $22 million from Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz — figures among one of the most expensive and aggressive plays yet by tech billionaires, who have spent years studying how to maximize the return they get from each additional dollar they spend on politics. Moskovitz is placing his single biggest public...

    Grant application turned over under federal court order quadruples polling places from primary, promises as many as 800,000 votes from city in November. Only 675,000 voted in 2016. Documents produced by the city of Philadelphia under a federal court order show millions of dollars in nonprofit grant money donated by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is being used to quadruple the number of voting places and massively grow the number of ballots cast in the Democratic stronghold on Nov. 3. The memos were turned over in a federal lawsuit filed by the conservative Thomas More Society, and they detail how city...

    The last week was a rough one for the fact-check industry, not simply because they demonstrably screwed up a series of very public decisions, but because those decisions exposed them for what they’ve always been: tools for censoring conservatives.Twitter followed Facebook into the corporate grey zone Wednesday, not even waiting for an “official” media fact-check before banning links to — and accounts associated with — a New York Post story that appears to show Biden family corruption. By evening, Twitter had suspended not just the 3rd largest newspaper in the country, but also the Trump campaign’s account as well...

    “Facebook is almost an arm of the Democratic Party — an arm of the far-left wing of the Democratic Party.” So said the former Facebook insider as we sat down for an interview at a Midtown restaurant Friday afternoon. A gloomy rain had left the joint deserted, yet the man across the table from me spoke in hushed tones and looked over his shoulder in between remarks for fear of retaliation. Yet he felt he had to speak out, because staffers are “intentionally trying to swing people further to the left,” as he had put it in an e-mail requesting...

    The Biden campaign is facing renewed criticism over its deep connections with Big Tech after both Twitter and Facebook censored a story from The New York Post detailing allegedly corrupt business deals by Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden. The move prompted fresh criticism on social media over the Biden transition team’s hiring of top Facebook executive Jessica Hertz, which reportedly came days after the 2020 Democrat’s campaign penned a letter to the social media giant urging them to censor President Trump’s posts. Twitter’s suppression of the Hunter Biden revelations also came days after the company’s director of public policy, Carlos...

    Chances are you’ve already made up your mind about whom to vote for as we decide who’s going to be the next president of the United States. You probably are also aware there’s no way The Hartford Courant or most any other newspaper is going to endorse Republican Donald Trump for reelection. There are many reasons for that, and we’re not going to go into them in great detail here. If you are voting for Democrat Joe Biden, you know what they are. If you’re voting for Trump, you probably don’t care. But there is one issue that demands a...

    The debacle that Big Tech created this week when they decided to censor an article critical of Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, has put a spotlight on people who were otherwise hidden in the shadows. Of particular interest are those who are involved with ensuring “election integrity” at companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google. That’s why it’s no surprise to find out Anna Makanju, Facebook’s Public Policy Manager for Global Elections, has a history that should spark interest. First and foremost, she was born in the former Soviet Union. That fact alone is not disqualifying; there are many patriotic...

    As paying customers of Facebook, it is appalling our account was locked without reason and their only answer for us is it might take weeks to hear back from them.

We provide marketing services to pro-life pregnancy centers all over the country, helping them reach abortion-minded women in their communities with life-affirming services and help. On October 15, we logged into our Facebook Business Manager account like any other day to check on the ads we run for these pregnancy centers. At the top of the screen was a...
