The left is absolutely satisfied with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s defense of his company given to CNN’s Brian Stelter this week, which, as you can imagine, was about the softest interview possible.
The interview was a perfect picture of the two biggest entities controlling narrative whilst trying to convince us they’re totally not trying to control narrative: the fake news media and big tech giants.
This marriage of propaganda put Dorsey’s defense of his company on full display, and while left-wing outlets puffed up their chests and said “see? No one is censoring!”, conservatives were less-than-impressed.
The Daily Caller reports:
In the clip that aired on CNN, Dorsey defined shadowbanning, a practice many conservatives have complained has happened to them and that President Trump condemned on Saturday, as “hiding that tweet from everyone without that person knowing about it.”
Regarding recent criticism levied at the social media platform, Dorsey contended that Twitter does not police content, but rather behavior.
“The real question behind the question is are we doing something according to political ideology or viewpoint, and we are not, period,” Dorsey said. “We do not look at content with regards to political viewpoint or ideology. We look at behavior.”
Dorsey then admitted the company’s ideology while maintaining that they were “not adding” their “own bias.”
“We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is left, is more left-leaning, and I think it’s important to articulate our bias and to share it with people so that people understand us, but we need to remove all bias from how we act and our policies and our enforcement,” said the Twitter CEO.
In other words, Dorsey is saying, yes, we are raging progressives with the power to censor conservatives, but we’re doing everything we can so that it doesn’t look like we’re censoring conservatives, OK?
I will give him points for admitting his bias, which is vastly more than CNN has done as they still flail around trying to convince the world they’re not blatantly biased propagandists working as the mouthpiece for the Democratic party and the progressive agenda at large.
"We do not look at content with regards to political viewpoint or ideology," @Jack told me. But he knows some people do not believe him. "I think we need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is left, is more left-leaning," he says… pic.twitter.com/1i8jJunhfz
