“Journalist Matt Taibbi was recently tapped by Elon Musk to examine and report on the internal deliberations at Twitter over censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story. In a Twitter thread Taibbi detailed how powerful individuals sought to – and did – get individuals banned from the site and how company executives fumbled their way through figuring out what kind of censorship measures to impose over details of the emerging Hunter Biden laptop story.

Jimmy and his panel of Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger and The Dive’s Jackson Hinkle discuss the Taibbi scoop and Twitter’s ham-fisted approach to censorship.”

“Wizards of the Coast is removing “race” from DnD, and players are reacting on social media. Some are blasting WotC because of bending the knee to faux media outrage, while others are complaining that the replacement term “species” is just as bad. Oh, and Oxford recognizes “goblin mode” as a dictionary entry and it means being selfish and greedy. Meanwhile, JK Rowling…”

YouTube Censors Reality, Boosts Disinformation: Part 1…

“Whether or not you thought the actual content of the story was important, the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop affair was a crossroads moment in the history of modern censorship. YouTube played a major role in this event.

This was a case in which major news media — including CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and countless other outlets — actively embraced disinformation, in the form of a group letter from 50-plus former intelligence officials saying the laptop story (they referred to a “laptop op”) had the “classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.” All the aforementioned news agencies fell for this, as did Twitter (which blocked access to it, in what then-CEO Jack Dorsey later admitted was a “total mistake”) and Facebook (whose increasingly adrift founder Mark Zuckerberg later told Joe Rogan the story was throttled down at the suggestion of the FBI).

YouTube also pushed this disinformation campaign. It still does. Despite the total absence of evidence ever existing that the laptop was either fake or part of a Russian “information operation” and a growing pile of evidence that the laptop is real, YouTube continues to leave unmolested on its site countless videos promoting the conspiracy theory — that’s what it is, let’s be clear — that the laptop story is both bunk and an intelligence op.

Here’s a brief sample of materials they still have up, unmarked as “misinformation” or “disinformation”:”

They’ve been doing this sort of thing for most of their existence.

These Controversial Accounts Are Set To Be Reinstated By Elon Musk…

Date: December 01, 2022

“For a variety of reasons – denying the 2020 election result, passing along COVID “misinformation,” targeting others for harassment, etc. – any number of Twitter users have previously been and remain banned from the platform, including the likes of Roger Stone, Steve Bannon and Sidney Powell. But now Elon Musk has announced he will likely be reinstating these accounts and more. But will Twitter become a raging hellscape as a result?

Jimmy and The Convo Couch’s Craig “Pasta” Jardula discuss which type of misinformation and threats would get you banned from social media and which wouldn’t.”

Elon is going to unban accounts that neither violated the law, nor spammed?

…Still waiting…though, I’ve gotten no form letter response back from my last appeal…So, who knows.

JAW-DROPPING: Reporters & White House Agree On Censoring Twitter…

“At a recent White House press conference, a front-row reporter asked Biden spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre if the Biden administration was monitoring Twitter since Elon Musk had taken over the social media platform, specifically wondering about the alleged “misinformation” that might be receiving a warm welcome on Musk’s Twitter. Jean-Pierre reassured the collected journalists that the White House was keeping a close eye on the goings-on over at Twitter.

Jimmy and The Convo Couch’s Craig “Pasta” Jardula discuss reporters’ eagerness to censor when they should be the most aggressive defenders of the First Amendment.”

“Krystal and Saagar discuss Elon Musk’s declaration of War against Apple and the App Store Removal Threat.”

Do You hate free speech, Elon?…Why has Donald Trump been fully restored, and yet I have not?

Trump credibly attempted to impose a coup…

…I got screwed for doing literally nothing.

…Who deserves to be allowed back?

“If Apple and Google take Twitter out of their app stores, Elon Musk says he’ll just start making his own cell phones. And the mad lad would do it. Then Wil Wheaton thinks a rich guy buying one website is the end of Western civilization. And Wheaton left Twitter ages ago.”

Leftist Permanently Banned From Twitter For JOKE!…

Date: November 24, 2022

Again…Notice how they actually singled out a tweet, when showing the banned individual where they “violated” terms, rules or policies?

They are supposed to do this…This is normal behavior, so that the banned can figure out why they were banned.

It is abnormal for anyone to get a permanent suspension [or account termination], over a first time offense…unless somebody positioned to inflict the penalty walked into this, with predetermined intent to banish you.

…I’ve seen some really awful things, twitter has been perfectly willing to take a light handed approach towards…many times over…And I’ve seen some really awful things, twitter refuses to take any action on at all…despite that they clearly violate terms, rules and policies.

Twitter refuses to enforce it’s own terms, rules and policies, equally across the board…Twitter refuses to protect anyone from abuse, who they deem an “unprotected” group.

Twitter openly chooses to allow and host dehumanizing hate speech, slurs and libel, against any legal, peaceful group of human beings, which it dictates are “unworthy” of empathy, or even just the most basic of anti-defamation protection.

With twitter, it is all a game of who’s team you are on.

Given that so many “trust and safety” twitter moderators are firmly in the “woke” camp…they side with, and act as the instrument of retaliation for, the people who abuse and defame on ideological “woke” grounds.

…Who even knows how many permanently banned people are out here, for whom their ban was transparently unjust.

They simply inflict it, and sweep it under the carpet…no accountability whatsoever.

…Then twitter has the gall to publicly boast about being “human rights and free speech” champions.

A lot of people [and growing numbers] know the ugly reality.

YouTube: It’s OK To Question Trump’s Election But NOT Biden’s?!?…

Date: November 23, 2022

“Free speech advocate and viral videographer Matt Orfalea recently received a strike from YouTube after publishing a video showing the juxtaposition of Democrats rejecting the results of the 2016 election with Republicans doing likewise over the 2020 election. Orfalea took no position on the various opinions offered, but that didn’t matter. He also received no strike for a video that focused on objections to the 2016 result, so it appears that YouTube is only interested in censoring videos that raise issues about 2020.

Jimmy and his panel of Orfalea and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the rank double standards faced by anyone posting political content on social media today.”

Garland Nixon Censored On Twitter…

Look at this…

…See…this is one of the issues I take with twitter…

To other people, they give a detailed reason, explaining the rational behind the actions they took…

For well over two years, in the face of repeated requests and disputing that I violated any terms, rules or policies, they’ve consistently refused to clarify any reason whatsoever, as to why my account got permanently suspended.

At the time my account was suspended, and easily over the entire previous year…there was nothing even vaguely going on, in the way of confrontations on twitter [and let me remind, that all past confrontations were people approaching me, and I remained civil regardless of how they treated me]…There was absolutely nothing on the radar, for me to even get into trouble for…public or private.

At this point, it is clear they don’t want to make any admission, or own up to whatever reasoning they used to “justify” the action they took against me…

…Why?…

Who, with any integrity at all, does that?

Every single thing about the censoring of me on twitter, has been entirely abnormal from standard procedure…Nothing about the way they have maltreated me makes any sense…

I’ve been severely penalized, for literally having done nothing.

This is just naked banishment and censorship.

I should have at least done something objectively wrong, for something like this to have happened to me.
