In recent months several reports have surfaced in independent and conservative media that the social media giants — Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google, primarily — have been censoring and “shadow banning” their content, as well as the content of ordinary platform users who simply take political and social positions the Left-wing social media behemoths don’t like.

As if to emphasize that point, on Monday The Western Journal published an analysis showing that after Facebook changed its algorithm in January, “the ability for members of Congress to communicate with their constituents through the world’s largest social media platform has dropped dramatically.”

Following the changes, members of both major parties saw their interactions with followers and readers fall off significantly — but of course, “Republican members of the House and Senate were impacted measurably more than those of their Democrat counterparts,” the news site noted, citing its analysis.

In all, interaction rates on Democrat officeholders’ pages fell by 27 percent from December to June, while the Republican interaction rate fell by 37 percent.

These findings follow an earlier analysis by The Western Journal revealing that content posted to conservative and pro-Trump media sites had fallen off Facebook’s News Feeds far more dramatically than Left-wing establishment media.

TWJ’s editor-in-chief George Upper reported:

This algorithm change, intentional or not, has in effect censored conservative viewpoints on the largest social media platform in the world. This change has ramifications that, in the short-term, are causing conservative publishers to downsize or fold up completely, and in the long-term could swing elections in the United States and around the world toward liberal politicians and policies.

Meanwhile, YouTube has banned entire channels and categories of subject matter such as material dealing with alternative medicine and firearms, while Google’s news feed is just a funnel for Left-wing establishment fake news.

Independent, pro-Trump media has decided to fight back.

Tech giants will not voluntarily restore a level playing field for speech

Infowars has announced a massive petition drive aimed at forcing the social media giants to end their practice of algorithm-based censoring and shadow-banning — secretly censoring a user’s content without the user knowing it’s been censored.
