Big Tech Is Watching You

Most of us use it these days. But what about when it uses you?
It’s not just Google, either: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube (which is owned by Google) have all exhibited the same pattern of discrimination and censorship against conservatives.

Facebook regularly buried conservative viewpoints from its trending topics section, several former employees told Gizmodo. YouTube and Google have targeted conservative and independent video channels for censorship and demonitization. Both Facebook and Google empowered left-wing fact-checkers to discredit conservative voices on behalf of the companies, with little oversight. Twitter buried tweets damaging to the Clinton campaign and censors conservatives but allowed racist death threats against Trump FCC chairman Ajit Pai.

Conservatives face discrimination, censorship and even violence when left-wing authoritarians run a college campus. But what happens when left-wing authoritarians run the most powerful companies in the world?
An online dictatorship is no better than the other kind...
