“Simon Ateba is a reporter from Cameroon, and even though he attends White House briefings, Ateba gets very little public attention, primarily because he is so infrequently called on by Biden administration spokespeople. Recently, frustration got the better of Ateba, and he vocally demanded to be called upon by Press Secretary Jen Psaki on her last day. Ateba’s violation of established norms and decorum have led to his newspaper being dropped from the Stripe online payment program, and the paper may have to shut down as a result.

Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss whether Ateba’s “improper” behavior and resulting ban from Stripe can be attributed to mere coincidence.”

“New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced with great fanfare recently that the state legislature had passed a series of bills that will help prevent gun violence by forcing social media sites to crack down on “hateful” speech on their platforms. Few believe the legislation will do much to affect gun violence while many view this effort as little more than kabuki theater intended to provide the appearance of action.

Jimmy and his panel of The Dive’s Jackson HInkle and American Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the different approaches taken by red states vs blue states in considering online censorship.”

“Left wing journalistic outlet The Grayzone has been targeted by British celebrity journalist Paul Mason, according to a cache of private emails that have recently been leaked. The emails reveal an elaborate plan to deplatform, discredit, lampoon and defund The Grayzone. When questioned, Mason refused to deny the accuracy of the emails, but instead chalked it all up to Russian psyops.

Jimmy and his panel consisting of The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the exposure of this not-so-secret plan to take down The Grayzone.”

“Danny Haiphong has been put in Twitter jail, his account suspended for at least a week after the Black Agenda Report contributor posted a tweet questioning the dominant narrative of what happened in 1989 in Tiananmen Square. Perhaps even more curiously, Twitter claimed the suspension was for violating the site’s rules against “abuse and harassment.”

Danny joins Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger to discuss his punishment at Twitter’s hands and the truth about the Tiananmen Square “massacre.”

“The author of The House In Fata Morgana calls out a western localizer who thinks his character shouldn’t have her knees turned in because… it’s offensive? Really? And this censorship happy localizer is more than happy to offer up even more unsolicited opinions on what the Japanese should and shouldn’t do to appeal to western audiences.”
