(NewsReady.com) – Censorship from Big Tech has been a problem for years. It seems the companies have been targeting conservative voices almost from the beginning. But, 2020 was an especially terrible year in this regard.
In the weeks before the election, social media platforms took a number of steps to silence Conservatives. They suppressed negative stories about Democratic candidate Joe Biden. Twitter repeatedly added warnings to President Donald Trump’s tweets and accused him of spreading misinformation.
And, Facebook and Google banned new political ads from their platforms right before the election. This made it harder for Conservatives to get their message out. Those bans stayed in place well into December.
Facebook and Google are maintaining bans on political ads imposed during the presidential race even tho that has been decided. As a result, they won’t allow Georgia Senate candidates to run political ads on their sites. https://t.co/mJkBiyVPoF

One of the most insidious ways social media companies censors people is by banning content that questions election fraud.
Everything that happened this year proved that it’s time to hold Big Tech accountable. The only way to do that is to repeal Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and reduce the companies’ liability protections.
