At least three times during CPAC, the excellent coverage from Right Side Broadcasting Network was interrupted by disclaimers, breaking away from speeches, and even muting of interviewees. This wasn’t due to them not believing in the message. They self-censored because two topics that are taboo on Big Tech, YouTube in particular, were being discussed.
Before we detail what all went down, let’s be clear about something. I do not blame RSBN for doing what they did. This is a growing business that many people depend on. It’s not just the excellent livestreaming coverage of events pertinent to conservatives, but also families who work at the network. YouTube tyranny is a real thing so discussions of voter fraud or vaccines are surefire ways to get channels banned. I know. Our Freedom First Network channel was hit with strikes over… wait for it… talking about Covid-19 and laying out facts about massive, widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election. Now, our channel is gone.
RSBN’s biggest source of viewership and income is YouTube by far. Many of us were caught flat-footed when the Big Tech purge of conservatives began. Censorship is not the fault of the censored. We hop on our high horse and say Newsmax should have told Dominion Voting Systems where to shove their lawsuit or RSBM should just move to Rumble, but it’s easier to be bold when it isn’t our own livelihood or the livelihoods of our employees that are on the line.
Okay, that’s my prerequisite anti-rant. Now, let’s look at what was censored. Mike Lindell from MyPillow had his mic muted during an interview. And before you make the assumption as I did that he was probably talking about voter fraud, guess again. He was panning vaccines and face masks this time.
My Pillow CEO supposedly ‘Censored’ over controversial vaccine conspiracy comments but the truth as to why is more troubling
As for voter fraud, RSBM cut away from a panel claiming voter fraud happened. They didn’t do so because they don’t believe it. They did so because of the lawsuits that are popping up against media organizations who allow such claims to be made, plus the aforementioned YouTube problem. Initially, I was peeved by this move, but over the last couple of days I’ve realized my anger towards RSBN was completely misguided. Is self-censoring acceptable if it will save jobs? As ugly of a choice as it is to make, the answer is yes. It’s YouTube and Dominion and Facebook and Google and Democrats and mainstream media and everyone else who is forcing this issue who need to receive our wrath, not the networks who are unfortunately dependent on one or more of these venues that hate us.
We got into this mess because the vast majority of conservatives never though the banhammer would come down on us so hard. We thought that was for the fringe. Guess what? If you’re a conservative, you’re now considered the fringe by Big Tech.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
