“This is the most comprehensive report we’ve ever produced – and details, what I believe may be one of the greatest threats to free speech in American history,” Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell explains in a video highlighting MRC’s study on social media censorship.

“I know that sounds dramatic – but, believe me – what we found really is that disturbing,” Bozell says in a video first released in April introducing MRC’s report,“CENSORED! How Online Media Are Suppressing Conservative Speech.”

“Over the past year, I’ve grown increasing concerned by troubling stories about conservative voices being suppressed on major social media platforms – on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter,” Bozell says, providing examples of how the various social media platforms discriminate:

  • “We found that Facebook’s trending feed has been deliberately hiding conservative content.”
  • “YouTube moderators are removing videos that promote conservative political views.”
  • “Google uses both their search engine and their video site, YouTube, to deliberately and aggressively promote liberal politicians and ideas while muzzling conservative viewpoints.”
  • “Twitter has been the worst place of them all for conservatives, doing things like banning pro-life advertisements while allowing ones from pro-abortion groups.”

Even those who don’t use social media should be alarmed, Bozell warns, since nearly two-thirds of all Americans get their news from social media today.

“That’s why we must fight back,” Bozell says, urging Americans to read and share the report on MRC’s “Conservatives Against Online Censorship” website (www.StopCensoringConservatives.com).

  2. Although I know exactly what anti-Trump Brent Bozell is all about, on this he’s right, but there is an even better legal argument against this true censorship and it’s by a man with credentials who knows his stuff.
