Tech Giants Google and Facebook are currently purging conservative content from Facebook and YouTube — They are hiding conservative stories on Google — They are shadow-banning conservative news on all social media.
In February Facebook launched a new algorithm to ensure that conservative news would not spread on the social media platform.
This was after Facebook announced it was losing 50,000,000 user hours a day in the previous quarter.
The algorithm change caused President Donald Trump’s engagement on Facebook posts to plummet a whopping 45%.
In contrast, Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) do not appear to have suffered a comparable decline in Facebook engagement.
Top conservative Facebook pages with daily traffic in the millions have seen 75% to 95% drop in traffic.
Young Cons, Western Journalism, SarahPalin.com, Independent Journal Review, Right Wing News, and several others have seen dramatic loss in traffic.
In 2016 we were one of the few conservative sites that supported candidate Trump – along with Breitbart, The Drudge Report, Infowars, Zero Hedge and Conservative Treehouse. We are proud of our efforts to report the truth that led to Trump’s historic win.
In 2017 Harvard and Columbia Journalism Review found that The Gateway Pundit was the 4th most influential conservative news source in the 2016 election.
Because of this we were targeted and have seen our numbers related to Facebook and Twitter decline dramatically.
The Gateway Pundit does not rely on Facebook for our traffic numbers.
Still, we saw a significant drop in Facebook traffic in the last month.
And this past weekend Facebook shut down our traffic stream from the social media platform.
This is corrupt, if not criminal, behavior.
Meanwhile, liberal sites are doing fine.
And it’s not happening here in the just US — Facebook is doing the same thing in POLAND!
From Voice of Europe:
The Polish government is creating a group designed to fight the unequal treatment of social media users. They claim they realise that ‘right-wing users’ are being discriminated online.
A working group will be created by Poland’s Ministry of Digital Affairs. The ministry claims that they are already in touch with Facebook about the issue.
The minister of the department, Marek Zagórski, says he wants to fight the unequal treatment of right-wing sympathisers on social media. Therefore, a team is to be created that will ensure that users are not suspended by Facebook.
