Reddit Shadow Bans Infowars As “Fake News” War Accelerates

Censorship purge of dissenting opinion knows no bounds

Reddit has shadow banned Infowars as the mass censorship of anti-establishment content accelerates under the guise of stopping “fake news”.

As users of The Donald Reddit [1] have complained about numerous times, links to Infowars are being deliberately prevented from appearing in Reddit’s popular /new/ category.

“Link posts to Infowars are shadow banned on Reddit,” wrote one user. “You can make the post, but it will NOT show up in /new/.”

“I’ve noticed this too, I used to get loads of up votes from Infowars links on the donald, but now they always stay as 1,” responded another user.

Note that all links from Infowars are being shadow banned, not just links relating to controversial topics like “PizzaGate”.

As we reported yesterday [2], Facebook is already blocking entire subjects, not just links from specific websites, related to whatever the establishment media (which itself puts out fake news on a routine basis) declares to be “fake news”.

By banning Infowars under the claim that we are fake news, the likes of Reddit and Facebook are censoring a news organization that secured an exclusive interview with the next president of the United States. Let that sink in.

In addition, despite innumerable attacks on Jones from the likes of the New York Times, NPR, Stephen Colbert being fair game for Reddit, Jones’ rebuttal will be censored in every instance, effectively de-platforming him.

The is happening despite the Washington Post having now been forced to admit [3] that its vaunted “fake news” exposé was itself fake after massive blowback.

As Matt Drudge warned about last year [4], the creation of social media ghettos has made the silencing of diverse opinions far easier for tech giants like Reddit, Facebook and Twitter. Despite the fact that these outlets are now the de facto public commons, they are becoming increasingly authoritarian in their brazen move towards censorship.

Last month, Reddit CEO Steve Huffman pledged [5] to suppress pro-Trump groups and even began editing posts made by Trump supporters on The Donald subreddit, sparking outrage.
