Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, has announced the formation of a new “content moderation council,” featuring people with varying political viewpoints.
Musk completed his purchase of the social media company on Thursday night, announcing himself to be “Chief Twit” in his bio on the platform. Following the completion of the deal, Musk immediately fired CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Sagal, and notably head of “Trust and Safety”, Vijaya Gadde, who made the decision to deplatform 45th President Donald Trump.
The platform immediately abounded with rumours that Musk would immediately allow numerous people who had been banned from Twitter back onto the microblogging site, especially after the account of Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, was seemingly reinstated less than 24 hours following the acquisition.
However, Musk announced on Friday that Twitter would be shortly “forming a content moderation council with widely diverse viewpoints,” adding that “no major content decisions or account reinstatements will happen before that council convenes.” Twitter will be forming a content moderation council with widely diverse viewpoints. No major content decisions or account reinstatements will happen before that council convenes. It is unclear if Musk meant that only “major” account reinstatements would be held off until after the meeting of the council, as other users are reportedly getting back on the platform. Musk confirmed that Ye’s account was restored by Twitter before the acquisition, and he was not consulted in the decision. Ye’s account was restored by Twitter before the acquisition. They did not consult with or inform me. One major account may be that of Trump, who congratulated the billionaire for the Twitter acquisition, but suggested that he was happy to continue to post and use Truth Social.
“TRUTH SOCIAL has become somewhat of a phenomena,” Trump said in a statement posted to Truth. “Last week […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
