Silicon Valley has made it clear they want Conservative outlets silenced.
Now the patriarch of Fox News is fighting back.
And News Corp shareholders were stunned at how Fox News chief Rupert Murdoch just declared war on Silicon Valley.
Big Tech CEOs issued marching orders to shut down Conservative voices.
Now it’s happening at every turn these days.
It’s so bad the powerful board chair at Fox News parent company News Corp waded into the fight and it looks clear having Americans barred from exercising free speech online is bad for the bottom line.
Rupert Murdoch ripped tech giants Google and Facebook of silencing Conservative voices on their platforms and called for “significant reform.”
“What we have seen in the past few weeks about the practices at Facebook and Google surely reinforces the need for significant reform,” Murdoch said at an annual News Corp shareholder meeting.
“There is no doubt that Facebook employees try to silence conservative voices and a quick Google News search on most contemporary topics often reveals a similar pattern of selectivity—or to be blunt, censorship,” the media mogul continued.
For a long time, Mark Zuckerberg denied that Facebook silenced conservatives.
The social media tycoon even went as far in 2016 as to post on his own social media platform that he took the accusations of censorship very seriously.
“We take this report very seriously and are conducting a full investigation to ensure our teams upheld the integrity of this product,” he said. “We have found no evidence that this report is true. If we find anything against our principles, you have my commitment that we will take additional steps to address it,” his 2016 statement read.
Google also denied similar accusations of censorship in 2018.
Now, however, these same companies don’t seem to care that they’re being accused of silencing dissenting opinions and they’re doubling down.
Rupert Murdoch continued in his message to highlight his concern over a recent complaint by the Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton.
“The collusion between the two companies on ad tech as alleged in the Texas Attorney General’s complaint is extraordinary,” Murdoch stated.
Murdoch concluded his statement by calling on conservatives to play an “active” and “forceful” role in the political debate.
Murdoch is spot on in his analysis of what is happening to this country.
Now it’s just a matter of whether or not Americans are ready to answer the call.
