Recently it was finally revealed that the FBI, during the 2020 election season, lobbied and pressured social media companies to suppress accurate and damning information about the Biden family’s corrupt international business dealings, falsely labeling it “Russian disinformation.”
Multiple polls show most Americans believe that likely turned the election away from President Donald Trump, who would otherwise have won, and handed the presidency to Joe Biden.
Now a new report from Newsbusters, a branch of the Media Research Center, discloses that a similar scheme has been assembled for the 2022 vote … fueled by $30 million from leftist billionaire George Soros.
According to the report, a number of organizations supported financially – in a big way – by Soros are actively working to induce the chiefs of Big Tech corporations to “step up their censorship …”
“The Soros-funded Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights (LCCHR) spearheaded an Oct. 13 open letter signed by 11 other liberal groups pining for Big Tech to ‘[t]ake immediate steps to curb the spread of voting disinformation in the midterms and future elections and to help prevent the undermining of our democracy,'” the report explained.
The letter complained about “online disinformation” bombarding voters in an effort “to confuse, intimidate and harass” them.
The letters were sent to Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Google’s Sundar Pichai, Twitter’s Parag Agrawal, and others from YouTube, TikTok, Snap, and Instagram.
Recently, Zuckerberg admitted during an interview with podcaster Joe Rogan that he was lobbied by the FBI in 2020 to suppress accurate but damaging information about the Biden family, under the claim it was “disinformation.” The Facebook CEO did indeed suppress negative information about the Biden family.
As Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell pointed out, “Soros spent $30 million on groups trying to get Big Tech to censor conservatives ahead of the midterms.”
The letter even demands action against individual candidates, charging, “[T]here is very little in your 2022 policies that reflect the ongoing and new challenges facing us as the midterms approach. Many of the bad actors and election deniers have continued and stepped up their online spread of false information since 2020, and some are even on the ballots for elected office in 2022. The policies and actions by platforms must do more to specifically combat these trends in 2022 and beyond.”
Signatories to the letter are various leftwing groups, including the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Center for American Progress, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, and others.
The letter insisted that the Big Tech companies “continually and consistently” enforce their requested censorship programs.
“Censorship before a U.S. election is not a new phenomenon,” said the Newsbusters report. “Big Media and Big Tech stole the 2020 election, throwing it to President Joe Biden. A 2020 MRC poll found that 45 percent of Biden voters weren’t fully aware of the New York Post story exposing alleged corrupt dealings involving him and his son Hunter precisely because Big Media and Big Tech whitewashed it in the name of blocking so-called ‘disinformation.'”
The report continued, “Had Americans been fully aware of the scandal, the poll found, 9.4 percent of Biden voters would not have voted for him. This shift would have flipped all six of the swing states Biden won to former President Donald Trump, giving Trump a victorious 311 electoral votes and sealing a second presidential term.”
