In November of 2018 Gab faced what would become a months-long smear campaign and one of the most coordinated no-platforming efforts in internet history. This followed after a mass shooter, who will not be named, allegedly took the lives of eleven innocent people and also happened to have an account on Gab as well as other social networks.
Twitter is accepting ad dollars from the Communist Chinese State Media Agency Xinhua, Pinboard reports. As protestors fight for their fundamental human rights in the streets, Silicon Valley giants continue to put profit before principles in bowing to the Communist Chinese government in their attempt to discredit protestors in Hong Kong.
Zachary Vorhies, a Google insider, has gone public with leaked documents from Google. Project Veritas has the scoop which shows the dark side of Google. After Google issued a request for police to perform a “check up” on their insider as an intimidation tactic, this led Vorhies to leak the documents.

Given the fact that Big Tech censorship and free speech online are two of the most important topics of the 2020 election cycle, I wanted to write to all of the candidates to propose a censorship-proof solution to Big Tech bias.

Susan Wojcicki, the CEO of YouTube, sat down the The Guardian last week to pontificate about where the “line of free speech” is and how she is the right person to make that call. The great irony here is that Susan gets it. She knows she can’t outsmart the trolls. She knows she can’t fully police them. The more rules YouTube puts out, the more creators adapt and learn to walk right up to the line or on the line itself, maybe even testing what happens when they step over it.
According to reports the White House has a drafted an executive order to address social media censorship by targeting Section 230 of the CDA.
