Author and Senior Editor at The Federalist Mollie Hemingway held nothing back in her forthcoming book “RIGGED,” detailing the irregularities in the 2020 election.
One chapter of that book is titled “Zuckerberg Should Be in Jail,” referencing Facebook’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mark Zuckerberg.
In that chapter, Hemingway hits back at Silicon Valley titans of industry, including Twitter, Google and Google-owned YouTube for using their immense power to sway the 2020 elections in favor of Democrats.
Here’s an excerpt from Hemingway’s book about Facebook’s censorship during election season:
Facebook once touted its ability to shut off 80 percent of the internet traffic to any link it deems misleading. When deciding whom to censor, Facebook relied on media ‘fact-checkers’ who consider themselves the opposition party. Biased journalists were given the power to scrub their rivals from the internet, thanks more to the legacy of their places of employment than their own work. This process of erroneous or slanted liberal media reports informing Facebook ‘fact checks’ played out
through Trump’s entire presidency and reelection effort. It suppressed dozens of news stories in the public interest and helped get Biden over the finish line.
Hemingway tore into Google, too.
“It’s undeniable Google is rigging results on politically sensitive topics, and that the results of this are politically disadvantageous to conservatives,” Hemingway writes.
Citing studies conducted by Robert Epstein, whom Hemingway describes as a “politically liberal Harvard Ph.D.,” Hemingway exposes quantifiably just how much Silicon Valley intruded on the supposedly “free and fair” 2020 elections.
“In 2020, Epstein monitored Google results using over seven hundred volunteers in three swing states and concluded, ‘Google search results were strongly biased in favor of liberals and Democrats,'” Hemingway wrote. “‘This was not true on Bing or Yahoo…. The bottom line at the moment is that these manipulations, the ones that we’ve so far quantified, could easily have shifted at least six million votes in just one direction.’” (Emphasis added).
For more overt proof of political censorship in favor of Democrats, Hemingway pointed to Twitter’s direct censorship of former President Donald J. Trump.
Beginning in May of 2020, Hemingway explained that Twitter was conducting a sort of trial run at censoring the leader of the free world. That’s when it first began labeling Trump’s tweets as “misleading,” or disallowing users from interacting with Trump’s tweets based on dubious policies like “the presence of a threat of harm against an identifiable group.”
Eventually, Twitter graduated to all-out censorship of Trump, and when its work was done and President Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 election, it banned the 45th president from the platform forever.
