CNS NEWS – President Trump, in three tweets on Wednesday, said he needs to find another news outlet, because “Fox isn’t working for us anymore.”
The president’s anger was triggered by a Fox News interview with DNC Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa, in which Hinojosa discussed the shrinking field of Democrat presidential hopefuls.
“I think that any one of these candidates will be a better president than Donald Trump,” Hinojosa said.
Fox News anchor Sandra Smith at one point asked which Democrat has the best chance of beating Trump, and although Hinojosa declined to answer specifically, she said the “democratic values” espoused by all of the Democrats is “why we will win.”
And over at the American Spectator, this…
Make no mistake: they don’t like you, and they want to silence you.
And whereas “they” at least once attempted to hide their disdain for conservatives, today America’s leading technology companies are all but celebrating it.
Each day greets us with yet another egregious example of censorship and an equally egregious excuse for Big Tech’s authoritarian posturing.
Consider recent videos by Project Veritas that demonstrate perfectly the political bias of Google, perhaps the most powerful company in the world; YouTube’s demonetization of conservative comedian and commentator Steven Crowder; or Facebook’s sweeping under the rug of articles from conservative outlets in its news feed.
Big Tech may be composed of numerous platforms, but it’s united by a single ideology that is unapologetically pro-woke and anti-free speech.
Things have gotten so out of hand that the Trump administration may finally take action. Per Politico:
The White House is circulating drafts of a proposed executive order that would address allegations of anti-conservative bias by social media companies … a month after President Donald Trump pledged to explore “all regulatory and legislative solutions” on the issue.
Anyone who thinks Trump is overreaching here simply hasn’t been paying attention. Comparisons of today’s Big Tech censorship to George Orwell’s 1984 are so plentiful, and have proven so accurate, they now border on cliché.
Perhaps the only distinguishable difference between Orwell’s Thought Police and Silicon Valley is that while the former was led by an all-controlling government obsessed with keeping its citizens ignorant, our current informational dystopia is presided over by a private industry cabal.
It seems that Big Tech has finally demonstrated to the Left the efficiency and effectiveness of the private sector; after all, the Democratic Party need not fret over conservative counterarguments when their friends in the Bay Area simply erase them.
