If You Thought That The Mainstream Media Is The Only Ones Censoring Information, Think Again

You’ve heard all of the hype and hyperbole about fake news on one side and about alternative media on the other side. Each side of the political aisle is typically complaining that the other side is lying and simply not telling the truth about what is going on in the world.

Frankly, that is what you get when you only hear one side of the story, and that’s why we try to give you the side of issues that you don’t hear in the mainstream media. The problem is, though, that, even with alternative media available to get other viewpoints from, you may have difficulty finding an alternate viewpoint. Why? Because the mainstream media isn’t the only group censoring information. The world’s most popular search engine, Google, is actively seeking to censor information, too. Jayson Veley quotes a Breitbart News story about this issue:

“Many people now fear that Google, Facebook and other companies are moving to control and censor their content. Are these fears justified?” asked Breitbart reported Allum Bokhari. “That is absolutely what Google is trying to do,” Hal replied. “The pro-censorship voices are very loud, and they have the management’s ear. The anti-censorship people are afraid of retaliation, and people are afraid to openly support them because everyone in their management chain is constantly signaling their allegiance to far-left ideology. Our leadership (Sundar in particular) is weak, so he capitulates to the meanest bullies on the block.”

Now, an argument can be made that Google, as a private business has the right to do what they want to do, and I understand that argument. The challenge, though, is that Google likes to bill itself as an unbiased information source when, clearly, they aren’t.

And, to make the situation worse, Google also owns other popular websites like YouTube which has started their own censorship program, and Facebook is on the same bandwagon.

We’re not just talking about “hate speech” here, either (though, to have a real dialogue about ideas, people need to be able to say things that other people don’t want to hear); we’re talking about anything that someone on the political left “might” find offensive. For example, a Libertarian writer recently had his Facebook account suspended for 30 days because he posted a meme showing a lady biting into a Tide pod with the phrase “This is why I can’t pay for your health insurance” written across the meme. Clearly, the meme is satire of both the Tide pod challenge craze and also of Obamacare, but the meme doesn’t advocate violence, suicide, or hate. To give you perspective, I don’t recall hearing anything about Facebook banning Kathy Griffin for her picture with the severed head of Donald Trump.

This whole situation means that, if you want to really find out what is going on in the world, you’ll want to find other ways to get alternate viewpoints, such as this website, and you’ll want to be on guard for blatant bias in the mainstream media news that you read, see, and hear and the Google searches and Facebook posts that you see. Vigilance in finding the truth is the only way that you’ll get to the truth because, sadly, it seems clear that Google and other tech media companies are intent on making it harder to find the truth.

    Very easy solution to getting an unbiased news report. Watch FOX News. Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Ingram angle, The Five, The Greg Gutfeld show, etc.

      Used to those with a C band satellite could get unbiased reports by catching the used by the station down links broadcasting the raw news interviews before they were censored and cut to fit the stations agenda.

      IN fact those who did know that in most cases the one being interviewed NEVER MET the person reading the questions on the actual show instead some underling never shown asks a question by satellite feed then they put the persons answer or part thereof as the answer to a question later when they put the show together that the person may never have been asked the entire interview but fits the stations agenda.

      Now after numerous people who recorded a certain event during the Clinton administration and released the proof the media lied about the incident the media scramble those links. Numerous times we have seen the so called news supposedly interview someone but instead of playing video of them saying what the “news” then claims they said they cut to someone else claiming they said whatever it was that fits the medias agenda.

      If they had in fact interviewed the person and played the video while MUTING their audio so the MEDIA could put words in their mouth then they should have allowed us to hear them say it themselves not cut to some narrator SAYING they said something. Remember if they show video of someone standing and talking but muted their audio and have a narrator READ what they supposedly said then most likely IT IS NOT what they said.

      It was not that many years ago the media LIED about a man who wanted to hold a quran burning in protest of a FOREIGN nation that under sharia law had just EXECUTED several missionaries including some Americans for distributing Bibles they then burned the large number of Bibles they had used as the PROOF they were in violation of SHARIA LAW that RESTRICTED what religion people are allowed to follow in that nation as well as PROHIBITING them from converting to another unapproved religion.

      The mainstream media in our nation made him out to be some nutcase who WITHOUT CAUSE suddenly decided to just hold a quran burning. Only those who paid attention to OTHER news sources got the full story that it was about protesting the MURDER of missionaries and the BIBLE burning done by a nation that IMPOSED ISLAM by law.

      And stay away from Shepard Smith and Chris Wallace.

    FB’s latest trick is to pull posts they don’t like and mark them as Spam. I refer to them as the “Spam Monkeys” being out in full force, and yes they remove that post as well. Any that they pull you can mark as not soam for their review, but of course since your post was conservative it will never be reviewed. It is not so unlike the scandal at the IRS, where Obama administration weaponized that branch of our government. They were convicted in court THREE time and still kept victimizing conservatives.
