Liberals hate the fact they no longer possess their media monopoly.
That rage led to some ugly decisions.
And Joe Biden can cancel Fox News using one terrible trick.
As Great American Daily reports:
Ever since Donald Trump won the 2016 election the Democrat Party reorganized itself around the principle that no one who disagrees with the left’s agenda should be allowed to speak online.
Facebook and Twitter began censoring conservatives in 2017 under the guise of fighting “fake news” in response to liberal complaints that Trump won in 2016 because he was allowed to directly communicate his MAGA message to the public unfiltered.
The censorship reached its peak in the 2020 election when Facebook and Twitter suppressed a story from the New York Post about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop which included evidence of alleged criminal behavior which could also implicate Joe Biden.
Now the left is coming after Fox News.
NewsGuard – a pro-censorship online tool – downgraded the score of FoxNews.com from 70 out of 100 down to 57 claiming Fox News “fails to adhere to several basic journalistic standards” as well as “published numerous false and misleading claims, including about politics and COVID-19.”

Liberal activists use NewsGuard to pressure corporations to tell ad platforms not to run their ads on so-called “untrustworthy” sites.
NewsGuard’s pitch is this keeps corporate brands away from conspiracy theories and “misinformation.”
In reality, the goal is to starve conservative media sites from ad revenue and shut them down by claiming any speech that the left disagrees with is “disinformation” or “hate speech.”
Fox News released a statement slamming the decision by NewsGuard.
“NewsGuard is a for-profit organization operating under the guise of an objective public service,” Fox News’s statement read. “Their management and editorial teams rely heavily on left-leaning sourcing to attempt to silence diversity of thought in media. FOX News is proud of the coverage we provide our dedicated viewers, which is why we attract the most politically diverse audience in cable news.”
NewsGuard is really a pro-censorship tool for the left.
National Public Radio, POLITICO and The New York Times all ran fake news stories claiming Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian disinformation.
All three hold 100 percent scores with NewsGuard.
Joe Biden’s poll numbers are abysmal.
Democrats face a wipeout in the 2022 election.
And the left is reaching into the bag of dirty tricks to try censorship of conservative speech to try and tilt the election in their favor.
