Why You Need To Develop Your Own News Sources

We have known for a long time that the mainstream media and Big Tech are biased. However, we need to consider what biased means–it not only means slanting a story to fit a political agenda–it also means not telling a story if it doesn’t fit a political agenda–censoring the truth when it is inconvenient.

Yesterday Newsbusters reported the following:

It’s Episode Seven of MRC’s new video series, CensorTrack with TR. This week we talked about the Free Speech America study which reported that Big Tech censors GOP congressmen by 54 to 1 more than Democrats.   

Big Tech censorship is omnipresent in the world and political sphere at large.There has been an uproar over online censorship against conservatives. The main targets have included individuals who aim to make an impact in the conservative movement through their own organization or political platform.

The American Principles Project is a conservative group that focuses on the importance of family and protecting parents and children from the attacks of wokeism and progressivism in the 21st century. With no warning or notice, YouTube shut down its eight year old account. The account has since been restored but the initial decision still holds impact.

Congresspeople have also been censored which limits their ability to reach new voters and gain support for their political platform. President Donald Trump was censored 625 times from May 2018 to January 2021 while Joe Biden was censored zero times. Twitter deleted content from Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) both senators had their YouTube accounts suspended.

The MRC report showed that GOP congressmen are censored way more than Democrats, 54-1. This is blatant hypocrisy and clear bias against Republican and conservative groups.

Meanwhile, Back At The Ranch

While much of America was focused on the hearings in Washington, censorship of ideas or events that were contradictory to the ruling political class continued. Yesterday NewsMax reported that Twitter had suspended the accounts of anyone seeking to audit 2020 presidential election results. What are they afraid of? Obviously the hearings in Washington are a good distraction from various audits taking place around the country.

The article reports:

Twitter, assailed by some critics as hostile to conservative voices, has apparently imposed a ban on those seeking to audit 2020 presidential election results, including some involved in the first-of-its-kind forensic audit in Maricopa County, Arizona.

Reports first noted the banning of two accounts sharing information from the Arizona forensic audit, but accounts sharing information on audit intentions in other states were suspended by Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, according to multiple reports.

Arizona state Sen. Wendy Rogers tweeted the news and warned followers she might be a future victim of Big Tech censorship

…The accounts included those designed to inform about the Georgia, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Pennsylvania audits, too. Those are among the states that decided the election for President Joe Biden and the bans come on the day House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Jan. 6 Select Committee began hearing from law enforcement officers who were beaten during the storming of the Capitol.

The article notes that Project Veritas has also been banned from Twitter. It really is time for someone to start a social media platform that can compete with Twitter and will allow all points of view.
