The 2020 election is more than a year away, but Big Tech is already at work to silence conservative voices.
Fox News contributor Sara Carter is among those being ‘shadow banned’ on Twitter. She’s also been hit hard on Facebook.
For those not yet aware, shadow banning is the act of blocking or partially blocking an individual or organization from being able to reach the online community. However, the affected person or party will not immediately realize the problem.
What began with large numbers of followers or likes one day resulted in far fewer fans the next day. To make matters worse, Carter said people who follow her on Twitter have not been able to see all of her tweets.
“That is huge problem,” said Carter, who is also a senior fellow at Independent Women’s Forum (IWF). “That’s silencing voices.”
In this day and age, people might be quick to call something ‘fake news,’ but Carter says these experiences, these stories are legitimate.
“We should hear all voices, and unfortunately, what we’re seeing s a direct attack by Twitter and by other media giants, even Facebook,” she stressed. “Shadow banning us from the public means our voice is not being heard, and this is not just happening to me.”
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-California) is suing over this problem, claiming he too has been shadow banned.
“I’ve also heard of it happening to Representatives Mark Meadows (R-North Carolina) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and others,” Carter continued. “The American people should be concerned about this because we have private entities in the public sphere that making decisions on what people see, and it appears these companies want to kind of skew towards the Democrats.”
Starnes agreed, saying he too has suffered similar fates on Facebook and Twitter.
“I encourage folks to go to SaraACarter.com, and be sure to bookmark that, as that’s one thing they cannot censor,” he instructed. “Check out the stories, the important stories the mainstream media will not cover.”
One place you will be able to find Sara’s work is on The Todd Starnes Radio Show.
“We’re going to work with you,” Starnes vowed.
