White House Launches Website To Report Silicon Valley Censorship
The White House has a new tool for censored patriots to report unfair discriminated against social media GIANTS like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Those who feel they have been shadowbanned, censored or suspended on platforms such as Facebook or Twitter can go to “wh.gov/techbias” to report the abuse.
The message on the site reads:
“SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS should advance FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Yet too many Americans have seen their accounts suspended, banned, or fraudulently reported for unclear “violations” of user policies.
If you suspect any political bias caused by these tech GIANTS, share your story with the President.
Twitter alternative Gab.com was among the first to support this initiative and tweeted: “Excellent, we will email our ~1m users and get you a very large set of data.”
In April, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) threatened to regulate social media companies after repeated charges from President Trump and other conservatives that Facebook, Twitter and Google have targeted the political speech of conservatives.
“What makes the threat of political censorship so problematic is the lack of transparency, the invisibility, the ability for a handful of giant tech companies to decide if a particular speaker is disfavored,” said Cruz during April remarks.
In March, President Trump accused Facebook, Google and Twitter of bias, saying “I do think we have to get to the bottom of it.” Trump said that the media giants are building a “stacked deck” against him.
Meanwhile, undercover investigative firm Project Veritas recorded Twitter engineers bragging about shadow banning “a way of talking,” as well as targeting conservatives and classifying users who tweet about “guns” and “God” as Russian bots.
