Alternative and independent media is under attack and needs your help to survive.
The Free Thought Project is going offline. We are doing so for 72 hours to demonstrate the inevitable effect of social media censorship, Google organic traffic throttling, and Facebook’s attack on freedom-minded independent media.
The Free Thought Project is being slowly snubbed out by the establishment-friendly social media giants as well as corporate players who refuse to advertise on sites who challenge the status quo.
Recently, the “arbiters of truth” at Snopes, the AP, and Politifact have joined in and ganged up on the Free Thought Project and determined that our entirely factual articles are “false.” As a result, our website’s organic traffic is currently being throttled from all sides. This throttling coupled with Google disabling ads on “controversial” content is the perfect storm which is primed to take us out.
