In a conversation with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) on Facebook Live on Wednesday, Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell declared the recent censorship of conservatives “the greatest worldwide censorship” of free speech in “the history of man.”
“In recent months, there has been a debate that has now exploded on the national scene dealing with the subject of censorship and the power of a handful of tech companies,” Bozell said. “When you consider that Twitter and Facebook have over a billion of an audience – NBC News has four million, Twitter and Facebook have a billion – it’s worldwide.”
“And when they make rules on, quote, unquote, hate speech, and rules are, are designed to censor conservative thought, you’ve got– technically– the greatest worldwide censorship of free speech in history, in the history of man,” Bozell said. “It’s that dramatic.”
Bozell then described an MRC survey showing that 32% of self-identified American conservative subscribers have left Facebook and another 65% believe there is an agenda of censorship against them.
