Big Tech seizing control of our entire election apparatus, banning right-wing dissidents en masse, rigging search results, giving billions-worth of in-kind contributions to Democrats and tens of millions directly to get-out-the-vote campaigns in Democratic strongholds, and censoring news stories to protect Joe Biden and help defeat Donald Trump is nothing to worry about — the real threat is conservatives complaining about it online!
CNN’s Brian Fung wrote an article on Sunday titled, “Conservatives push to discredit Facebook, Twitter and Google just days before the election.”
A right-wing offensive is underway to discredit social media companies just days before the election. https://t.co/CSebdA4bMQ

Here’s how the piece opens:
What began as complaints about anti-conservative censorship by social media companies has now evolved into outright allegations of election interference, as high-ranking Republicans have accused online platforms of helping Democrats by way of their content moderation decisions. On Wednesday, the Senate Commerce Committee is set to grill the CEOs of Facebook, Google and Twitter amid right-wing cries of partisanship and threats to change a critical law, known as Section 230, that protects the companies’ ability to moderate content as they see fit.
Outside experts have found little evidence to support claims of widespread, systematic political bias in Silicon Valley’s technology. But the conservative allegations are an explosive charge and a dramatic escalation ahead of Election Day.
Big Tech’s censorship doesn’t exist but conservatives complaints about the non-existent censorship are “explosive!”
Denouncing censorship is now a "right-wing offensive" to "discredit" Big Tech 😂

Fung makes no mention of Facebook and Twitter censoring the New York Post’s exposé of Joe and Hunter Biden’s shady dealings in Ukraine and China and banned people for sharing it (the NY Post’s Twitter is still locked).
Sorry. No data so far.
He also makes no mention of the fact(s):
– Twitter and Facebook boosted the story of Rudy Giuliani supposedly touching his junk sexually to millions only to turn around days later and censor everyone for sharing (censored) footage of Hunter Biden’s crack-smoking sexcapades.
– Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are banning dissidents en masse under the guise of “fighting hate” or “misinformation.”
– CNN personally lobbied Facebook and Twitter to ban Alex Jones and many others who are their competitors and critics.
– Google rewrote all their search algorithms and hired a 10,000-strong “army” of flaggers to blacklist all independent media while boosting propaganda mills like CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post above all others.
– Facebook and YouTube have declared entire topics off-limits for discussion.
Instead Fung writes that, “Independent studies of social media have found little credible evidence to suggest that the technology is biased against right-wing viewpoints” and claims “the platforms themselves have gone out of their way to help conservatives”!
Propaganda this ridiculous would make Pravda blush!
