Top 8 Ways Big Tech Has Tried to Fix the Election
Big Tech has worked hard to influence the 2020 presidential election to aid the left.
The major social media sites have restricted conservative content, censored the president of the United States and even silenced content from a major news organization because it embarrassed the Democrat nominee.
Facebook and Twitter smothered a bombshell story from the New York Post that scandalized the Biden Campaign in mid-October. The same two companies have also censored Trump 65 times while leaving his opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, unrestricted.
The same type of censorship has fallen on conservatives and pro-Trump posters for questioning the vulnerabilities of mail-in voting and voicing their concerns that mailing votes could lead to voter fraud and errors, despite the fact liberal outlets have acknowledged this in past elections.
Yet tech executives are unwilling to admit their ability to influence American politics. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation on October 28. The hearing, “Does Section 230’s Sweeping Immunity Enable Big Tech Bad Behavior?” featured Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) who slammed the absurdity of Big Tech liberals blaming Russia for election interference via social media, while pretending Big Tech platforms have no influence themselves:
“You all believe that Russia has the ability to influence the elections or interfere by using your social platforms. Mr. Dorsey, do you still deny that you don’t have the ability to influence and interfere in our elections?”
Dorsey replied “Twitter, as a company? No.”
Liberal Google researcher Dr. Robert Epstein, a senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, has warned that Big Tech could change the course of the election. Epstein also recently stated that Google may be “shifting power” to flip the Senate.
Epstein has specifically warned that Big Tech is capable of targeting individuals: “Google and Facebook have millions of pieces of information about every American voter, and they will be targeting their manipulations at the individual level for every single voter in every swing state. No one in the world except Google and Facebook can do that.”
Here are the top 8 ways social media companies have tried to influence the election:
#1 Censoring Stories to Protect Biden
The most damning evidence that Big Tech has rigged the election is that it worked to silence the biggest political scandal in recent history.
Big Tech companies recently made headlines for censoring a New York Post article. The shocking revelation released by the Post on Oct. 14, cited purported emails from Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son Hunter and reportedly exposed the alleged scandalous dealings of both father and son in the Russia-bordering state of Ukraine.
#2 Overwhelmingly Censoring Trump Over Biden: 65 to 1
Big Tech has caused serious damage to 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 Biden and his campaign accounts — at all.
Twitter composes the bulk of the problem, with 98 percent of all the instances of censorship. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Twitter has made the decision to censor major headlines about the Biden family, particularly when it came to the New York Post’s story about Hunter Biden’s dealings with Ukraine.
The Media Research Center’s Techwatch department analyzed two years of social media posts from Trump, Biden, and their respective campaigns. The analysis did not include any ads from PACs or super PACs that had made ads in favor of either candidate. It also focused on social media posts, not paid advertisements, from the campaigns. These numbers were collected from between May 2018 to October 16, 2020.
