Truth is the New Click-Bait
It’s no secret that Facebook and the Silicon Valley tech giants discriminate against conservatives.
In 2017, following the presidential election in November 2016, both the “Harvard Berkman Klein Center study and the Columbia Journalism Review study ranked The Gateway Pundit as the fourth most influential conservative publisher of the 2016 election.
Since those reports were published The Gateway Pundit has been censored, shadowbanned or eliminated entirely by the far left tech giants and social media platforms.
In March of 2018 Facebook shut down our content. In 2016 Facebook accounted for one-third of the traffic at The Gateway Pundit. Today Facebook accounts for only 2-4 percent of our traffic.
Facebook uses any excuse to eliminate conservative content. Hate Speech, Fake News or “Conspiracy site” are a few of the labels they use to target and eliminate conservative content.
But here’s a new one…
Facebook this weekend eliminated two articles published by The Gateway Pundit using the new excuse – “click-bait.”
Facebook says it’s clickbait because it is a positive story on Trump.
The second article they flagged as “clickbait” is also 100% accurate.
