Are newspapers in USA bowing down to censorship?
Let’s look at other countries concerning censorship and media outlets. “Governments are using the pandemic as a pretext to crack down on free expression and access to information,” proclaims Freedom House. The online article continues, “Authorities blocked legitimate websites, ordered the removal of unwanted content, and most egregiously, shut down internet service altogether. Officials have reinforced these controls by criminalizing more categories of online expression and arresting journalists, activists, and members of the public for speaking out about the government’s performance.” But that’s not happening in America – or is it?
Countries with governmental democracies expect socialist, communist, and fascist leaders to dictate what citizens can and cannot know in totalitarian nations.
However, Americans do not expect the newspapers in the great United States of America to bow down to political puppet masters. And just who are these puppet masters that are allegedly threatening our free press and our freedom of speech? Whose heavy hand is rocking the censorship cradle? These expert spinners have transformed the word “misinformation” to be akin to domestic terrorism. What? Since when are oppositive viewpoints considered tyranny in a nation based on discussion, debate, and disagreement? How do readers know what is and what isn’t false information – unless there is debate, education of readers, seeking reader feedback.
Let’s follow the big bully trail. Hmm. Where will that lead? Gold and silver is the usual destination.
But a powerful political propaganda campaign over alternative treatment information for the coronavirus relentlessly ensues in America with the bullying of reputable scientists, epidemiologists, physicians and their data. And we must ask questions. And more questions. A mammoth deception takes a mammoth coverup.
Censorship on major social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, is surprising, but the shockwave is due to American newspapers and what they are not printing.
What is happening with mainstream newspapers and the censoring of alternative opinions and factual data from other the experts who are not in Tony Fauci’s camp?
The largest 25 newspaper chains own a third of all newspapers in the U.S., up from one-fifth in 2004. These large chains own two-thirds of all dailies. Visit www.usnewsdesert.com.
Why aren’t newspapers in America covering the coronavirus controversy?
Being a bold advocate of freedom of the press, I highly support newspapers; however, I oppose censorship.
Melissa Martin is an author and self-syndicated op-ed columnist. She lives in the Tri-State area.
Could it be they are afraid of lawsuits since news papers are responsible for there content unlike social media sites.
This woman does not offer one example of censorship just her ranting if you want someone to take you serious give us some examples. Social media companies are not responsible for their content see section 230 but they are private companies with rules which you agree to when you use their service. Now newspapers are liable for there content and can be sued. Now the next time you want to rant give us all some examples for all of us and check out.
KAG: The examples are everywhere because I cannot find this articles. Find an article in a newspaper that gives the opposing view to Fauci. And please copy and paste it here. The Citizens Journal in CA does print opposite viewpoints to Fauci. But thanks for your feedback.
You can do better than this
And by the way you are the one who is ranting about censorship not me I didn’t write the opinion piece you did without ONE link to prove your point it’s just your opinion that’s all it is. At least give us a credible source for your beliefs.
You can’t pay any attention to crazy old KAG. She’s off her rocker.
I know I’m stoopid as can be.
Right on Melissa! Let her have it. So funny. LET’S GO BRANDON !!
