Bozell: Twitter's 'Shadow Banning' Is 'Most Sinister Threat to Free Speech in History'

MRC Pres. Brent Bozell warns of Twitter's assault on free speech.

Twitter’s practice of “shadow banning” conservative posts, exposed Thursday in a new James O’Keefe undercover video, constitutes “the most sinister threat to free speech in history,” Media Research President Brent Bozell warns in a statement reacting to the news.

The Project Veritas video, featuring current and former Twitter employees describing the social media giant’s shadow banning censorship tactics, prompted the previously-skeptical Bozell to issue a warning to all Americans:

“I have been a critic of some of James O'Keefe's work in the past, so I have the credentials to say the following: What O'Keefe has produced is not just extraordinary but it demands national attention.

“If social media is the communications vehicle of the future -- and it is -- then this represents the most sinister threat to free speech in history. That is no exaggeration.

“The radical left is out to censor the voices of all with whom they disagree. O'Keefe has proven it. Every American needs to watch this -- if, of course, Twitter will allow it.”
