In three years, since the 2016 election, Democrats and the liberal tech giants have worked to eliminate conservative voices.
Republican leaders stood by and watched.
In November, after the votes were counted, Democrats took control of the US House of Representatives.
Wealthy suburban voters and women were credited for the win.
At least 35 Republican lawmakers lost their seats in the midterm.
Democrats have a huge advantage over Republicans with their partners in the media complex, Hollywood, and academia.
And, unlike 2016, in 2018 Democrats could give a huge amount of credit to Tech giants Google, Facebook and Twitter.
Suburban voters and women no longer were reading conservative articles on Facebook. Facebook eliminated at least 1.5 billion links to conservative articles since 2017. If you add additional websites like The Gateway Pundit, Infowars, Young Cons, Right Wing News, etc. the number tops 2 billion easy. And it likely made a difference on Tuesday night. 80% of women age 18-49 have Facebook accounts. These are the women who get their news from Facebook. Facebook knows this and eliminated conservative content on their platform so there would be no repeat of 2016.
It’s no secret that the Silicon Valley tech giants discriminate against conservatives and conservative content.
In August President Trump warned Google about it’s biased practices against conservatives and conservative content in their search feature.
Facebook has been shutting down traffic to conservative websites since the 2016 election.
The Gateway Pundit recently spoke with two of the top conservative publishers in America.
Floyd Brown is a conservative author, speaker and media commentator. In 2008 Floyd launched Western Journal which quickly became one of the top conservative websites in America. By 2016 Floyd’s organization of Western Journal and other conservative websites under his umbrella had more than a billion page views. Since 2016 Floyd’s organization lost 75% of its Facebook traffic.
Likewise, we spoke with Jared Vallorani from Klicked Media. Jared traveled to Washington DC with The Gateway Pundit and website owners at 100%FedUp in June to discuss Facebook targeting against conservative publishers with Republican lawmakers. Jared told The Gateway Pundit his organization Klicked Media, which hosts over 60 conservative websites, lost 400 million page views from Facebook in the last six months if you compare the traffic to a year ago. Jared said, “We lost 70% to 80% of our traffic if you compare January to May 2017 vs Jan to May 2018.”
If you combine the total number of page-views lost by just these two conservative online publishers you are looking at a loss of over 1.5 billion page-views from Facebook in one year.
These are numbers from just two of the top conservative publishers in America. This does not include the thousands of other conservative publishers across the country who lost all of their traffic coming from Facebook. Here at The Gateway Pundit our Facebook traffic has been effectively eliminated after we were ranked as the 4th most influential conservative publisher in the 2016 election.
The fact that Facebook is targeting conservative publishers should not be a surprise to Gateway Pundit readers.
This is a bloodbath. Facebook has wiped out conservative content to American subscribers.
There is also evidence of far left Google officials debating how to bury conservative content. Google regularly censors conservative content.
And in the last week we saw Twitter excuse hundreds of vile and terrorist threats against children at Covington High School.
Twitter did not punish these dangerous individuals but gave them a pass as they continue to shadowban and eliminate conservative users.
Far left Google and Facebook also control 80% of advertising content online.
And they openly discriminate against conservative publishers.
World Net Daily reported:
If you think the internet is under the control of Big Tech now, it’s going to get much worse this year, reports a State of Digital Media White Paper.
Consolidation of revenue continues, with Amazon, Microsoft, Oath, Twitter and Snap spending $29 billion, compared to Google-Facebook spending a staggering $169 billion in 2018.
With this blatantly left-leaning cartel totally dominating the digital advertising market with boycotts and blacklisting, it’s more bad news for free speech and the free press.
And that’s not the end of the story, according to the report. Over the next five years, this cabal’s growth is projected to grow in double-digits over the next five years – “making life miserable for everyone else, particularly publishers,” says the report.
Other highlights, or lowlights, of the report, depending on your point of view:
Digital will encompass 50 percent of all ad spending in 2022.
80 percent of all digital ad spend will go to the duopoly and next five years.
The rest of the digital market will decline by 11 percent this year
“If this is not the time for government to reign in this cartel to maintain freedom of speech in the most important communications market in the world, I don’t know when it might be,” said Joseph Farah, the internet pioneer who founded the first independent online publishing concern in 1997 and who has been warning of disaster imposed by what he calls “the speech code cabal.”
