(Media Research Center) Big Tech companies, outraged at President Donald Trump’s win in 2016, put everything they had into ensuring that he would lose in 2020.
In seven key swing states, one in seven Biden voters (14 percent) said they primarily relied on sites such as Facebook or Twitter for their election news, according to a survey from the Media Research Center conducted by The Polling Company, which polled 1,750 Biden voters in seven swing states. But on Twitter and Facebook, conservatives, Trump supporters, and news that damaged the Biden campaign were regularly stifled, especially in the months leading up to the 2020 election.
Campaign messages only have value when they are heard.
Trump and his campaign suffered the most in the censorship melee. Before the election, Twitter and Facebook had censored them 65 times but left former Vice President and Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, unscathed. Twitter was the bulk of the problem, with 98 percent of all the instances of censorship.
A bombshell New York Post report implicating former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, in corrupt dealings in Ukraine was almost immediately suppressed on both Facebook and Twitter. The Post reported on “smoking-gun email[s]” that purportedly revealed “how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman” to his father, the then vice president.
Polling showed that if all Biden voters had known about this story, enough would have changed their votes to swing the election to Trump…
Companies like Facebook, Google, and Twitter picked sides before the election and used all their power to further the win.
Ninety percent of donations from Twitter and Facebook employees went to Democratic campaigns, according to OpenSecrets.org. Facebook contributed 91.68 percent ($2,409,464 out of $2,628,040) of its donations to Democrats collectively between individual donations ($2,400,269) and PAC donations ($234,000) equaling $200 or more. Affiliates of Alphabet, Inc., Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, and Apple donated $10,243,589 to the Biden campaign during the 2020 presidential race, according to OpenSecrets.
Trump received only $427,047 from the aforementioned Big Tech companies.
