Brent Bozell, the president of the Media Research Center, heaped praise on states leading the fight against Big Tech censorship.

The social media giants are actively engaging in censorship of speech. And this battle isn’t just existential to free speech, but to America.

“It’s remarkable that men like Mark Zuckerberg talk about how the business model of Facebook can’t exist without the public square being open to the public,” Bozell said. “Well, what they’ve done is they’ve shut down the public square.”

Big media and social media stole the 2020 elections, Bozell insisted, by withholding information from American voters.

“Thirty-six percent of Joe Biden’s voters had no idea of Hunter Biden,” Bozell said. “Thirty-six percent of Joe Biden’s voters knew nothing about the Hunter Biden scandal.”

Had they known, 4.6 percent of Biden’s voters would not have voted for Biden.

“If you took that 4.6 percent number and put it across the electoral landscape, Donald Trump would’ve won all five contested states,” Bozell said. “That’s how important that censorship of information was.”

Bozell noted that the federal government will not make any moves against the Big Tech power grab anytime in the immediate future.

“Nothing is going to happen in the next two to four years – in the next four years at least, on a national level, against these companies. The Biden administration is chock full of employees, former employees from these companies that are now working for the Biden administration, these companies pour hundreds of millions of dollars into the process,” Bozell said. “They bought Washington. Guess what? I’m looking at a city that’s for sale – the highest bidder gets it. And big social media got it. So they own this Congress. They own the White House. Nothing’s going to happen until there really is an effort made by serious men and women to stop what is the greatest threat to freedom, I believe, in this nation’s history.”

Eighteen states are pursuing antitrust litigation against Big Tech, he pointed out. He also said state policy proposals to lessen Big Tech’s influence and censorship is “exciting.”

“That may be the most exciting of them all, because you’ve got 50 states and more and more of these states are coming forward with their own solutions to this at the state level, not waiting for Washington, D.C.”
