MSNBC Goes Full-Blown Censorship Denier In Crazed Rant
MSNBC analyst Brendan Buck was freaking out because in a month's time, the GOP will take the majority in the House and the real fun will begin. Elon Musk dropped Twitter files showing that the platform coluded to protect Biden by smothering the Hunter laptop story and he couldn't have picked a better time.
Buck, rather than take the high road and blast corruption, decided to go full censorship-denier...
"Brendan, last night, Elon Musk promoted a series of tweets revealing internal documents claiming Twitter took steps to restrict access to a New York Post article from October 2020 about Hunter Biden," Reiser said. "We should note NBC has not seen or verified those documents, but why do you think Musk is doing this and what impact could it have if Republicans launch investigations into Hunter Biden when they take control of Congress?"
Buck said Republicans will "launch an investigation into Hunter Biden and this angle of it, but also Twitter in general."
He also suggested that the incident has major implications for political debates around big tech in general.
"There is a long-running theme through Republican politics right now, that big tech has censored conservatives, the term is ‘shadow banning,’ all these things that people talk about-how free speech from ‘just conservatives’ has been muzzled, and I think they’re gonna use this whether or not it shows anything of that," he claimed. "What it does show is that [Twitter] had a close relationship with Democrats - much closer relationship than with Republicans."
He suggested that this one incident of censorship will bolster a larger narrative.
"That is enough. That is enough to have Republicans say, ‘Aha!, this is exactly what we have been talking about. We have been cast aside. People are censoring our speech,’" Buck said. "The entire ethos of Republicans is victimism, and the fact there are elites in power who are holding them back and this plays perfectly into that theme."
"The resulting slant in content moderation decisions is visible in the documents you’re about to read. However, it’s also the assessment of multiple current and former high-level executives," Matt Taibbi wrote sharing emails to expose the truth about Twitter.
Taibbi’s initial thread said that one major reason Twitter moderation leaned leftward was "Because Twitter was and is overwhelmingly staffed by people of one political orientation, there were more channels, more ways to complain, open to the left (well, Democrats) than the right," he tweeted.
"The resulting slant in content moderation decisions is visible in the documents you’re about to read. However, it’s also the assessment of multiple current and former high-level executives," Taibbi wrote.
They can deny censorship all they want. Soon none of their blabbing will matter because, in a month's time, we should see some major investigations pop up. I think this is them prepping the Dem base for what they will claim is 'misinformation'. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
