The Democrat Media Complex pushes its approved narrative at all times.
The details of how the machine works are more intricate than people can imagine.
And one bombshell report about the 2020 election will have you gnashing your teeth.
The rise of social media created a big problem for the powers that are in the establishment.
Legacy institutions, like newspapers and broadcast televisions, were no longer the only way people got news.
In 2016, Donald Trump was the first candidate to break through the establishment media monopoly and use social media to spread his message.
The establishment was not going to let that happen again.
After Trump’s election, there was a concerted effort by both public and private organizations to rein in political discourse through censorship.
Suddenly, people with the “wrong” opinions were getting kicked off of platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
By the time the 2020 election rolled around, the Censorship Industrial Complex had been refined.
Everyone is now aware how Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” story was suppressed on Twitter and Facebook, but the censorship ran far deeper than that.
RealClear Investigations (RCI) unearthed coordination between the federal government and private organizations to shut down so-called misinformation and disinformation.
A treasure trove of evidence
The Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) worked with the Election Integrity Partnership (EIP), a collection of groups led by the Stanford Internet Observatory, to filter messages across social media.
The EIP trawled through hundreds of missions of posts with the help of CISA to flag potential misinformation and disinformation.
RCI reported that the EIP “coordinated its efforts primarily through a digital ‘ticketing’ system. There, one of its as many as 120 analysts or an external partner could highlight a piece of offending social media content, or narrative consisting of many offending posts, by creating a ‘ticket,’ and share it with other relevant participants by ‘tagging’ them.”
So hundreds of biased analysts were working together to “ticket” content that they did not like.
As the COVID pandemic taught everyone, misinformation could depend on the day of the week. One day masks worked then the next day, they did not.
RCI added that “[t]agged participants could then communicate with each other, in something of a group chat, about the veracity of the flagged content, concerns about its spread, and what actions they might take to combat it. For social media companies this meant removing the content outright, reducing its spread, or ‘informing’ users about dubious posts by slapping corrective or contextualizing labels on them.”
This came to light when Elon Musk bought Twitter for $44 billion and released the Twitter Files.
Stanford epidemiologist Dr. Jay Bhattacharya had been placed on a “do not trend” list for contradicting Dr. Anthony Fauci regarding COVID protocols.
During the 2020 election cycle, the EIP created 639 tickets spanning nearly 5,000 unique URLs.
RCI obtained close to 400 of these tickets and highlighted some of the biased censorship that took place.
Conservatives and counter-narrative voices placed on “do not trend” lists after government agent “ticketing”
For instance, EIP ticket number 450 had to do with labeling posts that suggested mail-in voting was not 100% secure.
RCI reported that the ticket “lags a number of social media posts around the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s 2020 ruling ‘regarding accepting ballots with mismatched signatures,’ whereby, according to a commenter ‘[t]he prevailing narrative … is that this is an indication that people can commit voter fraud through vote-by-mail.’ The commenter adds, in what appears to be a directive to Facebook and Twitter, that ‘we recommend that the posts be labeled … clarifying that vote by mail is secure.’ Facebook appears to respond in a subsequent comment that it ‘applied the correct labeling.’”
This is just scratching the surface of the Censorship Industrial Complex.
The establishment is deadly serious about maintaining its power through the control of information.
