While most indie media was focused on about Kanye West talking to Donald Trump in the USA and the case of a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing (UK version of Dancing With The Stars,) kissing his professional partner, a completely unaccetable escalation in the efforts of far left Silicon Valley CEOs to introduce internet censorship and blank sites that do not share their neo - fascist world view took place, and it threatens everything sane people (right or left) all care about. And yet it went almost unreported by mainstream media, a cartel which has far more to lose than independent news websites.
A massive purge by Facebook of hundreds of politically oriented pages and personal accounts pronounced guilty by Zuckerbergs politically correct fairies of “inauthentic behavior”, attracted a fair amount of opprobrium for dishonest way Facebook always denies bias while planning such policies. Even more disturbing, though it received less attention than Facebook's display of authoritarianism, was that many of the same anti-establishment alternative media sites had their accounts completely removed from Twitter as well, as if the two social media companies were being steered by a hidden hand.President Trump obviously has concerns about the policies pursued by Silicon Valley too, he's making moves to take on the world's most evil company, Google, and its parent Alphabet. And this ethically challenged organisation is also in deep legal trouble with the EU, Russia, China, India and a few other countries.
Three large alternative media outlets which were expelled from both platforms at almost the same time: Anti-Media, the Free Thought Project, and Police the Police, all of whom had millions of followers on Facebook. And those expulsions come soon after the rather nutty, but still supposedly protected by free speech rights, InfoWars site was deplatformed on Facebook. And the social media giant will no longer show links to rival social media site Minds, which is totally committed to free speech.RELATED POSTS: Dare We Defy The Illiberal Code Of Liberal Left Free Speech Murdered Facebook fake news Google evil ambitions The Internet Of Things Who Fact - checks the Fact - checkers Zuckerberg: Facebook developing AI to suppress free speech Elsewhere: [ The Original Boggart Blog] ...
