Big Tech Censorship and Mediacrats Collusion
From the Corinne Weaver Free Speech America December 2020 “SPECIAL REPORT: Big Tech Stole 2020 Election by Weaponizing Platforms” article: Big Tech companies, outraged at President Donald Trump’s win in 2016, put everything they had into ensuring that he would lose in 2020.
Mediacrats is an often used term throughout the MADNESS textbooks to mean that the liberal media and Democrats are closely aligned in their philosophical views and association with each other. Big Tech companies wield an incredible amount of power when it comes to informing and influencing their users. They knew it and abused that power to help steal a presidential election.
Google Responsible Innovation Head Jen Gennai was caught on camera by Project Veritas in 2019 saying, “We’re training our algorithms, like, if 2016 happened again, would we have … would the outcome be different?” Gennai bragged that Google was going to prevent “the next Trump situation.”
Forbes wrote that “72% of U.S. citizens of voting age actively use some form of social media.” More than 172 million potential voters were subject to the subtle changes online. Feeds were manipulated, conservative politicians were censored, and stories were suppressed in order to affect these voters in some way.
Both Facebook and Twitter continued to manipulate what they allowed users to see even after the election. Facebook modified its feed to restrict conservative sites and emphasize traditional news outlets who pride themselves on being against Trump.
It affected voters, according to the MRC survey: One of every six Biden voters surveyed (17%) said they would have abandoned the Democratic candidate had they known the facts about one of eight key stories about either Biden or Trump. The Hunter Biden story was the strongest example out of the eight and 9.4 percent of those surveyed said that would have caused them to change their vote—if they had known about it.
Big Tech proved that they were out to influence the election by continuing to hammer Trump into the ground with censorship even after all was over. Trump and his campaign have been censored at least 486 times on Twitter, with more than 400 of those instances occurring after November 3, 2020.
If liberal Big Tech companies have so much power and influence to manipulate an election, can any election really be fair? That’s the question that both political parties, Congress and the federal government must address.
