The Media Research Center conducted a study to assess how many times the two opposing presidential candidates had been censored on Facebook and Twitter. The study was ran by the Techwatch unit of the Media Research Center and they went through all social media posts made by President Trump, Joe Biden, and their respective campaigns from May 2018 to October 16, 2020. They found 65 instances of information shared from Trump and his campaign being censored. How many for Joe Biden? A massive 0. No content produced from Joe Biden or his campaign has ever been censored.
Analysts for the Media Research Center, Corinne Weaver and Alec Schemmel, said, “Big Tech has caused serious damage to President Donald Trump’s ability to be heard on social media. Twitter and Facebook have censored the president’s social media accounts and the accounts belonging to his re-election campaign at least 65 times. In contrast, the companies have not censored Joe Biden and his campaign accounts. At all.”
The analysts continued to talk about how problematic Twitter, specifically, has been. They cited times where information about certain subjects had repeatedly been censored or branded with a warning label. They said, “Twitter has been far and away the biggest offender, labeling, fact-checking, and Trump’s tweets and the tweets from his campaign accounts 64 times since the president’s election. Tweets about the president’s concern over mail-in voting, COVID-19, and the Black Lives Matter protests have been given ‘public interest notices’.”
A few more examples of what Twitter has deemed “disinformation” or “false information” was a very obvious satire video of Biden walking to the song “[expletive] Tha Police”, any tweets about the drug hydroxychloroquine, several memes, and four videos-one of which discussing anti abortion policies and prolife facts.
The MRC noted times when information about ANTIFA had been censored because it violates the “organized hate policy”, the censored posts also included a petition to “stand with your President and his decision to declare ANTIFA a Terrorist Organization.” Then they mentioned that there are still several ANTIFA groups and pages active on Facebook.
Because of the blatant censorship and silencing of different ideas, news, and opinions, Senate Republicans Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham, and Josh Hawley are calling the big media giants out and demanding they testify. The senators also say a subpoena is nearing. Senator Cruz said, “It has no precedent in the history of democracy. The Senate judiciary Committee want to know what the hell is going on.”
