Video: Twitter Files Journalist Michael Shellenberger Warns Of ‘Censorship-Industrial Complex’
“The rise of a for-profit censorship industry funded by American taxpayers to censor real-world information”
Journalist Michael Shellenberger, who testified Thursday before the Senate regarding his involvement with the Twitter Files, has warned of a “very disturbing” movement toward a “Censorship-industrial complex” being implemented by the government.
Speaking about his testimony and attempts by Democrats to get him to reveal his journalistic sources, as well as just having plain insults thrown at him and being called a threat to Democracy, Shellenberger told Tucker Carlson that the hearing “was a very disturbing event.”
“They then proceeded to demand to know who our sources were, which of course, we were unwilling to share with them,” Shellenberger continued, adding “We were revealing here this is way beyond woke censorship within Twitter,”
The journalist urged that “we have now discovered a censorship-industrial complex that includes government-funded entities that are doing state-sponsored censorship.”
“They are now seeking widespread use of artificial intelligence to censor accurate information,” Shellenberger continued, adding “We’ve now seen Facebook and Twitter caught censoring accurate information about coronavirus vaccinations because they were worried that it would lead to vaccine hesitancy.”
“The story has really evolved, and there is much more to say on it we are still discovering quite a bit of information, but what you’re basically seeing here is the rise of a for-profit censorship industry funded by American taxpayers to censor real-world information,” Shellenberger asserted.
Here are the clips of the Democrats asking both Shellenberger and Matt Taibbi to expose their sources:
All of this is happening under the context of the Biden Federal Trade Commission going directly after the journalists and Elon Musk for daring to expose the censorship activities of the deep state.
ALERT! In the age of mass Silicon Valley censorship It is crucial that we stay in touch.
