Twitter continued to crack down on anyone sharing the viral video of a group of doctors touting hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) as a Covid-19 “cure” Tuesday, removing a tweet containing a link to the video by Breitbart News and locking the outlet’s account.
Breitbart announced that its video of America’s Frontline Doctors was removed from Twitter with the justification from the platform that “tweets with the video are in violation of our Covid-19 misinformation policy.”
“Footage of the livestream on Periscope, Twitter’s livestreaming platform, had generated 1 million views before being removed by the site.” Breitbart noted.
BET Founder Robert Johnson on Wednesday ripped protesters tearing down historical monuments across the United States as “borderline anarchists” and said black Americans “laugh” at White Americans who believe toppling statues and boycotting television programs are what black people truly desire.
Protesters destroying monuments “have the mistaken assumption that black people are sitting around cheering for them saying ‘Oh, my God, look at these white people. They’re doing something so important to us. They’re taking down the statue of a Civil War general who fought for the South,” Johnson, the U.S.’s first black billionaire, said in an interview with Fox News.

An internal Labout investigation found that antisemitism was rife in the left-wing party, and that some members held borderline “neo-Nazi” views.
The report, which covered the party’s actions between 2014 and 2019, stated that an email inbox containing reports of prejudice against Jews would go unchecked “for months”. There were also “a litany of mistakes and missed opportunities” in tackling antisemitism within the party.
“The events which led to this investigation, including the party becoming host to a small number of members holding views which were unarguably hostile to Jewish people and in some cases frankly neo-Nazi in their nature, are deeply disturbing,” the leaked report said, according to the Daily Mail.
The Los Angeles Police Department was trying to figure out Saturday how one of its ads for new recruits ended up on right-wing news site Breitbart.
The department, in which Latinos comprise the largest ethnic group of officers, was quick to denounce the placement on a platform that has often highlighted the misdeeds and crimes of people living in the U.S. without proper documentation and that critics have accused of posting racist content.
LAPD Chief Michel Moore tweeted Saturday that his department would team up with the city’s Personnel Department to determine how the ad, featuring a photo of an officer and the words, “Choose Your Future,” ended up on the website once run by Stephen Bannon, a former adviser to President Donald Trump.
Project Veritas has published internal documents from another Google insider, this time showing employees asking Google leadership to blacklist Breitbart from its search algorithms.
In the fifth expose of Google’s censorship and political agenda released Wednesday, the documents show Google employees discussing a letter asking Google CEO Sundar Pichai “to end Google’s business relationship with Breitbart.”
“Google basically says they are impartial publishers of content and therefore are not liable for any content they publish,” the insider told PV. “But these documents show that they are anything but impartial.”
Former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted an image of a migrant father and daughter who had died on the U.S.-Mexico border and he attempted to link the deaths to cruelty from President Donald Trump. However, Breitbart News consistently reported on the deaths of hundreds of migrants along the border during the Obama-Biden administration — horrors that then-Vice President Biden never spoke about during his time in the White House.
During the Obama-Biden administration, 535 migrants died in one Texas county alone — Brooks County. The county is located about 80 miles north of the Texas-Mexico border and is home to the Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint on U.S. Highway 281.
InfoWars Editor-at-Large and popular conservative YouTube commentator Paul Joseph Watson joined Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Friday, to discuss YouTube’s purge of conservative, libertarian, and centrist accounts.
“Calling in from London is someone I’m very excited to talk to, Paul Joseph Watson. He’s an editor-at-large at InfoWars,” welcomed Marlow. “You probably most know him from his YouTube channel which is wildly popular, and I’m excited to talk to Paul because he’s a smart guy. This is an important topic we’re going to get into, and most importantly people don’t want me to talk to him. I’m not supposed to talk to you, Paul.”
Watson laughed, before Marlow continued, “Let’s get right into it. YouTube is threatening InfoWars in particular, they say you’re one strike away from the YouTube ban, and I’m surprised they’re even giving you fair warning.”
Posts from a private Facebook forum obtained by Infowars feature a Facebook employee assuring another user that Infowars and Breitbart won’t be able to influence the company’s new ‘trust’ algorithm to make their content appear more regularly in people’s Facebook feed.
Facebook recently announced plans to revert back to a system where users would be more likely to see content posted by their close friends and family instead of breaking news.
“The site is also requesting data from users to discover which news sources people trust and want to see posts from,” reported the Metro.
As part of this process of deciding which sources are trustworthy, Facebook is obviously keen to ensure that the likes of Infowars and Breitbart don’t perform well, if chat logs from a closed group on Facebook are anything to go by.
In several exclusive interviews with Breitbart, former employees of the company reveal a company dependent on celebrities, hostile to free speech, and silently fuming at President Trump’s continued dominance on the platform. It corroborates the recent Project Veritas exposé of a platform that is hopelessly biased and committed to censoring non-progressive voices.
Our first source, who, like the others, wishes to remain anonymous, described how the company rapidly abandoned its commitment to free speech after former CEO Dick Costolo was replaced by Jack Dorsey, who the source described as “the definition of a social justice warrior.”
The majority of Twitter’s management, says the source, believes the leftist idea that “hate speech is violence.” They “absolutely” believe in the idea that “abuse scares people off the platform,” and that certain types of speech “silence” other speech.
