Conservatives have Crowder’s back … Yesterday, I told you how Twitter has suspended CRTV Host Steven Crowder over an undercover video taken at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. It’s not just Twitter, YouTube has removed the video as well. Conservative thought leaders and media types have joined in the effort to get Crowder fully reinstated on Twitter before the end of his 7-day suspension. CR’s Chris Pandolfo has the details.
Why this is important … There is a disturbing trend where it appears Silicon Valley tech giants are suppressing conservative content. The Western Journalism’s George Upper has documented how recent algorithm changes at Facebook have effected conservative websites. Spoiler alert: conservative sites have, on the whole, seen their traffic drop precipitously after the change while MSM and left-wing sites have dropped far less or in many cases have seen a significant uptick in traffic from the social network. The change is clear and demonstrable.
Fight back … There is a real concrete way to fight back against the Silicon Valley bias against conservatives. Sure you could move away like PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, but through control of social media the bias is everywhere. First, you can support conservative media by purchasing a subscription to conservative content creators. For instance, you can both see the Crowder video Twitter and YouTube don’t want you to see, AND subscribe to CRTV using this link.
Second, you get this email in your inbox, censor-free, every weekday. I ask folks to share the signup link with their friends every day in the closing section. By sending like-minded friends and colleagues to the WTF MSM!? signup page you are helping them to receive conservative content that the elite don’t want them to see.
… against the mainstream media’s biased reporting, selective facts, and outright propaganda. Sign up now for the daily dose of sunlight you need to disinfect the media’s lies. It’s free!
Immigration enforcement like the Holocaust … Defending the borders and enforcing the immigration laws of a sovereign nation is in no way like the systemic government-sanctioned murder of a race of people. That’s a pretty easy notion to grasp. Well, unless you are CNN. Check this tweet by CNN:
A Jewish woman heard an undocumented immigrant and her two daughters were on the run from ICE. Driven by thoughts of the Holocaust, she risked her own comfort to offer them shelter. https://t.co/B959PLxUhZ pic.twitter.com/1v4EEHofaR

This comparison by CNN is not only absurd, it is disgusting.
Sad … Gregory Korte, the White House correspondent for USA Today shares a heart-wrenching story about how one of Korte’s sources sent the journalist his life’s work via email, then committed suicide. It’s a poignant reminder that all people are human, all people have problems, even those who we think are all right. I’m sharing because it’s a story I think we all need to read.
CNN shakeup … Over the past few months, CNN’s ratings have been tanking while MSNBC’s ratings soar and Fox’s hold steady. In February, CNN didn’t have a show in the top 20 of cable programs. Not only that but the highest rated show, “Anderson Cooper 360,” ranked at 24.
Perhaps that’s why CNN has decided to move Chris Cuomo from morning to primetime. Cuomo’s new show will be in the same 9 p.m. ET timeslot that includes Sean Hannity and Rachel Maddow. Cuomo, who routinely engages in partisan attacks, hilariously taunted his new competition. Cuomo said, “I don’t know where their partisan fights are getting us.”
I said it above, but I’m going to say it again. Techies holding the left-wing values of Silicon Valley are actively trying to suppress conservative thought. There are ways to fight back against the censorship including newsletters like WTF MSM!? That’s why, every day, I ask you to send your friends to the WTF MSM!? signup page. Delivering conservative content directly to email inboxes circumvents the censors. As always send me an email at [email protected] if you see the media or tech giants do something that makes you say WTF.
