NPR Accidentally Admits Big Tech Interferes in Elections


It’s been a well-known truth for years: Big Tech loves to censor conservatives. In January, social media giants Facebook and Twitter proved that Former President Donald Trump was no exception to that intolerant trend after suspending his accounts from both platforms. Months later, after Facebook briefly considered reinstating Trump’s account, a tweet from NPR appears to highlight the dangerous blow these Big Tech platforms can deal to right-wing voices. “Whether or not Facebook decides to reinstate former President Trump’s account in the coming months will likely have major consequences for Trump’s political power and possible future campaign,” the Thursday tweet said. Conservative author and commentator Mollie Hemingway retweeted the post with her own commentary attached, writing “Interesting way of admitting how much election interference and election meddling against Republicans that our tech companies can do and have done!” Hemingway is right. Social media presence — and platform bias — are big factors in elections. It’s no secret that social media has become one of the most prominent aspects of our lives.
