Since mid-2016 the big 4 tech companies – Google, Facebook, Twitter and, the biggest social media platform in the known universe, YouTube, have engaged in secretive/open policies of censorship. It began with Amazon owned, Washington Post running an article announcing Prop-Or-Not in which some unknown shadowy people had decided there were 200 different websites that were engaged in spreading Russian propaganda. Nothing could have been further from the truth and this experiment actually unleashed unintended consequences that took more than a year for these tech giants to reign in. Each of the 200 websites traffic exploded to the upside, in some cases doubling there traffic from the previous month.
The next step was unleashed by YouTube in what was dubbed “AdPocalypse” due to the way YouTube began systematically stripping ad revenue from content creators. Not all content creators and not all videos published by these select content creators were affected, but it was devastating to some of us, including The Daily Coin. I pointed out in an article on August 28, My videos were averaging approximately 5,000 views per video – which was down from well north of 8,000 – and today if they reach 2,000 it is nothing short of a miracle.
There was no rhyme or reason behind this on-going attack to our revenue base. AdPocalypse continues to this day with the added bonus of shadow banning. More about shadow banning in a moment.
When Natural News was first threatened and then had 140,000 pages de-indexed, Mike Adams took action, hired an attorney and had everything put back into place in short order. This was the warning shot to all other websites, including The Daily Coin, that something major was coming down the pike.
This is now the third phase of what seems to be a coordinated effort among these companies. Google began de-indexing pages from established websites like InfoWars and Natural News. This practice is alive and well today and effects The Daily Coin on an almost daily basis, according to the reports I receive, and file, showing which pages and how many were de-indexed within some unknown time frame. It appears to be within the past 24 hours as some mornings will include articles that are merely hours old.
So far we have covered YouTube and Google leaving Facebook and Twitter. President Trump has recently had three of the four companies on his tongue, in a big way, just this week. This spells a major change is in the making.

According to a memo posted on Facebook’s internal message board titled “We Have a Problem With Political Diversity”, and which was published by the New York Times, senior Facebook engineer Brian Amerige confirmed Trump’s allegation writing that “we are a political monoculture that’s intolerant of different views” and shockingly admitted that “we claim to welcome all perspectives, but are quick to attack — often in mobs — anyone who presents a view that appears to be in opposition to left-leaning ideology. We throw labels that end in *obe and *ist at each other, attacking each other’s character rather than their ideas.”
The scathing indictment of Facebook’s liberal “mono-culture” continues:
We do this so consistently that employees are afraid to say anything when they disagree with what’s around them politically. HR has told me that this is not a rare concern, and I’ve personally gotten over a hundred messages to that effect. Your colleagues are afraid because they know that they — not their ideas — will be attacked. They know that all the talk of “openness to different perspectives” does not apply to causes of “social justice,” immigration, “diversity”, and “equality.” On this issues, you can either keep quiet or sacrifice your reputation and career.
“These are not fears without cause” Amerige writes, and continues the stunning disclosure of the company’s biased culture, “Because we tear down posters welcoming Trump supporters. We regularly propose removing Thiel from our board because he supported Trump. We’re quick to suggest firing people who turn out to be misunderstood, and even quicker to conclude our colleagues are bigots. We have made “All Lives Matter” a fireable offense. We put Palmer Luckey through a witch hunt because he paid for anti-Hillary ads. We write each other ad-hoc feedback in the PSC tool for having “offensive” ideas. We ask HR to investigate those who dare to criticize Islam’s human rights record for creating a “non inclusive environment.” And they called me a transphobe when I called out our corporate art for being politically radical.
In 2017 James O’Keefe and Project Veritas did amazing work in uncovering how Twitter handles conservative voices. The Project Veritas Team went under-cover to get the real scoop on Twitter and the specifics of shadow banning.

If you still believe these companies are operating under the Constitution and the 1st Amendment, please go back to the beginning and start over. Or simply throw this in the trash and continue on in the unicorn and rainbow fantasy land in which you live.
This article is merely a cliff notes version of what is happening. The damage these companies are doing to liberty, justice and what information people actually receive goes much deeper and is far scarier than the picture painted here. If you scratch the surface a little further you will find an endless array of articles to support what is pointed out here. We just wanted to let you know that we no longer have a 1st Amendment. Google and Facebook control approximately 80% of all content that flows across the internet. This is entirely too much power for two people to have, especially, when the bias they hold is well documented.
Ann Coulter, love her / hate her it doesn’t matter to me, but she just release a new book detailing what is happening. She was on with Alex Jones, InfoWars in an amazing interview. If you are biased towards Alex Jones and you are familiar with his work that’s acceptable. If you are biased towards Alex Jones and you are unfamiliar with his work – that’s unacceptable and shows you are under the control of corporate media.
