Conservatives organize against social media censorship and come out swinging

Social media have been on the hot seat lately, but the left-biased press has mostly focused on privacy issues.  The more significant issue is capricious censorship, which has hit conservatives especially hard.

For a while there, I had thought there was not much problem, and the people yelling censorship were probably nuts of some kind.  But my view changed when Bridget Johnson, the pleasant, thoughtful, and intelligent writer on Pajamas Media, was banned without explanation from Twitter, and then Diamond and Silk, two funny and popular black pro-Trump vloggers, were declared by Facebook to “unsafe for the community.”

Unsafe?  Two black women who like President Trump?  Yes, unsafe, all right, but only to Democratic electoral prospects.

Yeah.  There’s censorship.  It hasn’t gotten the attention it should get, and congressional hearings don’t seem to be going anywhere at this point.
