Sen. Josh Hawley Goes on Tucker Carlson to Discuss His Bill to End Social Media Bias Against Conservatives (VIDEO)

On Friday Senator Josh Hawley joined Tucker Carlson to discuss his legislation to end social media bias against conservatives by the tech giants.

Hawley is THE ONLY Republican politician doing anything about the tech giants elimination of conservative speech online.

Senator Hawley went off on the far left tech giants: “They ought to embrace the same 1A values that everybody else embraces, and so no discrimination on the basis of your political views. If they want to discriminate, they shouldn’t get the special deals from government.”

 

And Hawley destroyed the ridiculous Libertarian argument of “if you don’t like it go start your own Google.”

As previously reported:

Facebook has been shutting down traffic to conservative websites since the 2016 election.

Conservatives dominated social media in 2016 where they were able to get the truth uncensored.  Facebook ended that in 2017 and 2018.

The Gateway Pundit spoke with two of the top conservative publishers in America last year.


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.

We have been reporting on this for several months now.

This influence map below by Columbia Journalism Review shows the top influencers during the 2016 election.

And here is that same map showing the conservative publishers who have been targeted by Facebook since 2017.

Facebook has eliminated content from a vast majority of top conservative publishers since 2017.

In February James O”Keefe and Project Veritas published proof from a whistle-blower that Facebook plotted and planned to remove conservative content from their platform.
