Trump launches website where social media users can report censorship by tech giants!

WASHINGTON (PNN) - May 16, 2019 - For more than a year, the social media behemoths have been testing POTUS Donald Trump’s patience with their shadow banning, censorship, and outright deplatforming of one conservative figure and voice after another.

In August, for instance, the president publicly blasted “illegal” censorship by the social media behemoths.

“Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake News Media,” he wrote on Twitter. “In other words, they have it rigged, for me and others, so that almost all stories and news is bad. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative and Fair Media is shut out.”

Then in March, the president warned Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg after the social media behemoth blocked Trump’s social media manager, Dan Scavino.

“I will be looking into this! #StopTheBias” the president wrote.

Well, POTUS Trump - as much as he has on his mind given the Russian collusion hoax, the border crisis, and global hot spots - did, in fact, look into it. Now the White House is taking what is surely just a first step in addressing the blatant anti-Trump, anti-conservative bias of the Left-wing social media platforms.

On Thursday, the Trump regime launched a new website that allows users of social media to report incidents of bias.

“The Trump (regime) is fighting for free speech online,” said a tweet from the White House. “No matter your views, if you suspect political bias has caused you to be censored or silenced online, we want to hear about it.”

Twitter alternative Gab approved of the regime’s new initiative, tweeting, “Excellent, we will email our 1 million users and get you a very large set of data.”

The initiative has been a long time coming.

Not only has the president himself called out the tech giants after repeated complaints from conservatives, they have either been banned outright or had their content “shadow banned” - downgraded without their knowledge so that even their own followers could not see their posts - but some leading lawmakers have also addressed the issue.

In April, Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.) threatened legislation that would regulate social media companies after the president repeatedly accused them of anti-conservative bias.

“What makes the threat of political censorship so problematic is the lack of transparency, the invisibility, the ability for a handful of giant tech companies to decide if a particular speaker is disfavored,” he said during published remarks last month.

Also, freshman GOP Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri, who, as attorney general of the Show-Me State, sued the tech companies over alleged privacy violations, has grilled social media representatives in committee over similar issues.

Of course, representatives from the tech giants have all denied that their platforms are inherently biased, but significant studies - and some good old-fashioned investigative journalism - have proven otherwise.

In March, James O’Keefe and his journalism outfit Project Veritas caught a pair of Twitter engineers on video discussing shadow banning, banning “a way of talking,” specifically targeting conservatives, and classifying any user who talked about “guns” and “God” as Russian bots, thereby suppressing their speech.

The new website will gather information about social media censorship. Let’s hope it leads to some sort of antitrust action by federal agencies responsible for ensuring that all Amerikans are treated fairly.
