NewsBusters Podcast: Leftist Twitter Meltdown, Google Suppresses GOP Search Results

October 31st, 2022 10:51 PM

Social-media networks are a hot topic going into the midterms. Leftists are losing their minds over Elon Musk's takeover of Twitter. On MSNBC, Lincoln Project adviser Tara Setmayer called Musk a "child," said he's "Immature," he has "daddy issues." She can't imagine why a single advertiser would stay.

Alleged free-speech advocate Suzanne Nossel of PEN America told MSNBC's Ali Velshi ""We’ve seen that falsehoods travel faster than than the truth on Twitter, that polarization can be stoked, that it’s a weaponization of human nature."

A Free Speech America study shows Google's search algorithm suppresses some of the hottest Republican Senate candidates. Ten of 12 Senate Republican Party candidates’ campaign websites appeared far lower (or did not appear at all) on page one of Google’s organic search results compared to their Senate Democratic Party opponents’ campaign websites.

Joseph Vazquez -- Associate Editor for MRC Business and Free Speech America -- joins the show to explain the Big Tech developments. We discuss how George Soros funds a myriad of groups who advocate censorship of conservative information in social media. If Soros had bought Twitter, none of them would have been the slightest bit upset.
