After Lobbying Big Tech to Ban Infowars, CNN Says Big Tech Censorship is a Conspiracy Theory

After months of having lobbied social media giants to silence Infowars, CNN published an article insisting that President Trump’s complaint that social media companies were silencing conservatives was a conspiracy theory.

In an article entitled Trump props up false claim that big tech is out to silence conservatives, CNN’s Oliver Darcy, the same reporter who repeatedly lobbied YouTube, Facebook and Twitter to censor Infowars, asserts that there is no political agenda to censor conservatives.

Responding to Trump’s tweet about social media giants “silencing millions of people,” Darcy accused the President of “exacerbating a longstanding paranoia from conservatives who have for years erroneously accused social media companies of bias and censorship.”

However, his article is absent the admission that Facebook, YouTube and other Big Tech outlets banned Infowars after months of intense lobbying by CNN, a competitor network, to shut down their competition

Back in February, Darcy began abusing his CNN platform to lobby YouTube to shut down the Alex Jones Show, an effort that was almost successful at the time, before the channel finally was shut down earlier this month.

Darcy then switched his attention to Facebook, attending a Facebook eventand asking executives from the social media site, “Why InfoWars is still allowed on the platform.”
