Social media influencers on the right have long been calling on Washington to investigate and act upon the clear bias of tech giants Google, Twitter, and Facebook.
These tech giants are so massive and influential, they have the ability to control who sees what and when on their timeline or in their search results, which can cause a serious blow to any outlet they censor for whatever reason.
We have first-hand experience of this kind of censorship having been dealt several serious blows over the last year as we watched our reach drop after algorithm changes and losing monetization of our articles which greatly inhibits our ability to make content.
For conservative and Christian businesses, this kind of targeted censorship restricts their ability to compete on a level playing field with other businesses.
Not only that, but the social media giants wield so much power over the flow of information that the open left-leaning bias of their company leadership is far more than simply concerning. It’s downright frightening.
So we were very glad to see the news that the White House has, after several comments from Donald Trump over the last few months on this issue, drafted an executive order to investigate possible anti-trust violations within big tech.
At this point, it is only a draft, and awaits review by other government agencies as well as Trump’s signature.
The executive order states: “Because of their critical role in American society, it is essential that American citizens are protected from anti-competitive acts by dominant online platforms.” The order continues to state that consumer harm could come “through the exercise of bias.”
Yes! Such good news.
