Starbird believes that there may be less censorship during the upcoming election cycle, as suggested in an article by The Guardian. She suggests that Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan’s committee reports alleging collusion between Big Tech and the government to censor dissidents are based on “outlandish claims.”
Starbird has gained recognition for her work in documenting misinformation, with her team identifying instances of misinformation during the 2020 presidential election cycle.
In a recent episode of “Face The Nation,” CBS’s Senior Correspondent Jo-Ling Kent criticized the social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter) for allowing free speech to thrive. Kent expressed frustration about the limitations placed on censorship due to protections of free speech.
Kent specifically took issue with X for permitting figures like Alex Jones to return to the platform and for reducing the size of their Trust and Safety team. She also noted the challenge of removing misinformation on platforms like Facebook due to their vast size, describing it as an impossible task but still hinting at a desire for censorship.
The cultural Left recognizes that a culture of free speech poses a threat to its pursuit of political dominance. Consequently, it may use corporate media and Big Tech to censor or suppress dissident voices during the 2024 presidential election cycle.
It is crucial for the alternative media ecosystem to remain active and provide counter-narratives to ensure that the American public has access to diverse perspectives and the truth about the ruling regime.
