HALP! HALP!! The horrible leftist Twitter has censored another wonderful tweet from fine upstanding right-wingers. Will somebody please think of the wingnuts? This anti-conservative bias is shameful.

'Twitter Deletes Post From Right Wing Site Suggesting Intentionally Infecting Americans With the Coronavirus'
Twitter has finally stepped in and deleted a post from The Federalist that links to their article suggesting a program intentionally infecting healthy Americans with the coronavirus. The highly-controversial article which runs counter to medical experts’ advice effectively suggests coronavirus parties as a “social activity,” a database of every person in the U.S. and their COVID-19 infection status, and wonders: “Will we allow parents to make these sorts of infection decisions for both themselves and their children?”

“This Tweet is no longer available because it violated the Twitter Rules,” is the message social media users trying to access The Federalist’s tweet now receive.

Facebook has not deleted The Federalist’s post promoting its article. NCRM will not link to it but our original reporting on the article is here.

The article itself, penned by an Oregon dermatologist, has not been taken down, but it has been removed from the front page and does not appear in the website’s list of most popular stories, which given the controversy surrounding it, likely is.

Good job on them! Now they should go after those HORRIBLY DANGEROUS people who say things like...

'But men aren't women though'

Or...

'OK Dude'

Keep the tweeters safe from such dangerous anti-facts.

Is the Epstein story (of nearly no-one investigating the Epstein story) an example of media bias? How about his connections to Harvard researchers who got busted for running a bio-lab in Wuhan? To be fair, probably most people just don't want to know about any of that...

When will this pogrom of the speakers of truth ever end?

'Google Finally Bans Alex Jones' "Infowars" App After Coronavirus Claims'
The InfoWars app was removed from the Google Play Store on Friday, in response to a video in which conspiracy theorist Alex Jones spread disinformation about the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

Just as on his radio show and other online platforms, Jones published false information via the InfoWars app, which had more than a 100,000 downloads at the time of its removal from the app store.

In addition to broadcasting The Alex Jones Show live, products were also sold through the app, including supplements and protein powders. The New York Times found that alternative medicine supplements were a lucrative business for Jones, generating more than $15 million in sales for InfoWars in 2014.

His videos included ads for supplements which Jones claimed could protect buyers from the coronavirus. Instead, the supplements contained "nanosilver," a rebranded name for colloidal silver, which has a long history in alternative medicine circles despite repeated FDA warnings against its use. Colloidal silver has no known effect on COVID-19, nor any mechanism by which it might. Jones made similar anti-viral claims about supplement toothpaste and mouth gargle for sale by InfoWars, appending a disclaimer disavowing claims surrounding their efficacy "in the cure treatment, prevention or mitigation of any disease, including the novel coronavirus."

"Now more than ever, combating misinformation on the Play Store is a top priority for the team," a Google spokesperson told Wired, confirming Google had pulled the InfoWars app from its Play Store. "When we find apps that violate Play policy by distributing misleading or harmful information, we remove them from the store."

According to Wired, the final straw was a video in which Jones enfolded the coronavirus into his typical medley of one world government paranoia, extraterrestrials and Christian demonology.

Colodial silver mouth-gargle? That has a nice ring to it. Where do I get it now that the app store banned him?

Oh man Cunt, you'll have to venture into the wilds of the dark web, dodging deep state bots and government hackers.

More evidence (as if any were needed) that conservative voices are being silenced by Big Tech.

'Twitter DELETES Rudy Giuliani Tweet Featuring Coronavirus Misinformation and False Attack on Gov. Whitmer'
Trump personal attorney and confidant Rudy Giuliani posted a tweet featuring misinformation about the coronavirus and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, which was then deleted by Twitter because it violated the platform’s rules.

On Friday, Giuliani tweeted direct quotes from dedicated Trump supporter Charlie Kirk, rather than retweeting him for some reason.
Hydroxychloroquine has been shown to have a 100% effective rate treating COVID-19

Yet Democrat Gretchen Whitmer is threatening doctors who prescribe it

If Trump is for something--Democrats are against it

They're okay with people dying if it means opposing Trump
The tweets link now gives users the message “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules.”

...

Kirk made that concentrated series of false claims in a tweet that was also deleted Friday for violating the rules.

OAN. The "news" channel for people who think Fox News is too left-wing.

"His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it." —From the OSS’s psychological profile of Adolf Hitler

I've seen OAN, man, it makes Fox look socialist.

The network used to be called "Wealth Network", all the shows were about buying islands and yachts and jets and shit. I used to watch the boat shows and dream of lotto wins.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Media bias continues to protect the gang who loved hanging out on the Lolita Express.

Bill Gates is accused of being on those flights (after Epstein's conviction) but that isn't suspicious. He's a 'Good Guy'.

Oh, and Biden just got 'Kavanaughed'. I wonder if the media will show a bias in how they deal with the two.

Both old powerful white dudes, who stand accused of similar (though the Biden accusations sound worse to me) things.

Will they be treated differently in the media, and does that show a media bias?
