(National Sentinel)Â Payback: If POTUS Donald Trump has one quality it is his instinct for going after those who are doing a disservice to the American people and making things right.
With that in mind, he’s turned his sights on the social media behemoths who have been systematically banning and censoring conservative voices ahead of the 2018 midterms.
Steadily over months Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, and others have been “shadow-banning” or outright banning pro-Trump independent and conservative media, lawmakers, and pundits in a bid to mute their voices. Left-wing and liberal media, meanwhile, have gone untouched and are even being promoted over rival voices,Â PJ Media reports.
But on Monday, POTUS Trump took Twitter, ironically (because the platformÂ can’t mute the most powerful voice on the planet) unusually early to call out the social media giants andÂ warn them what’s coming if they don’t reverse their behavior.
â€œGoogle search results for â€˜Trump Newsâ€™ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media,” he wrote.
â€œIn other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD,â€ he continued. â€œFake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out.â€
Then this bomb: POTUSÂ asked if the search results were â€œIllegalâ€, before noting: â€œ96% ofâ€¦ results on â€˜Trump Newsâ€™ are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous.â€
â€œGoogle & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good,â€ he added. â€œThey are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!â€
TheÂ PJ MediaÂ report noted,Â â€œ96 Percent of Google Search Results for â€˜Trumpâ€™ News Are from Liberal Media Outlets.â€
Mediate noted further:
The report tested out results from searching â€œTrumpâ€ in the news section of Google, analyzing the results usingÂ Sharyl Attkissonâ€˜s â€œmedia bias chart.â€ The report looked at the first 100 items that appeared, and found that supposedly â€œleft-leaning sitesâ€ made up â€œ96 percent of the total results.â€ CNN â€” one of the highest trafficked news websites in the world â€” appeared the most frequently by a â€œlarge marginâ€, the report said, while conservative websites likeÂ National ReviewÂ or Breitbart did not.
We always knew it would take POTUS TrumpÂ getting involved to have this issue addressed and resolved.
It’s not a matter of ‘a private company deciding how it wants to operate.’ Scores of conservative websites and publications (including this one) have spend money promoting and marketing themselves on these platforms,Â only to be down-rated, shadow banned, or censored outright.
That’s not an operating choice, that’s fraud. And it’s illegal.
