MRC President and Founder Brent Bozell slammed Big Tech censorship in a Tuesday interview, detailing the harrowing election interference of social media platforms to aid the scandal-ridden Biden administration.
In an interview with Stuart Varney on Fox News’s Varney & Co, Bozell did not mince words in response to MRC Free Speech America’s exposé into Big Tech’s draconian censorship of President Joe Biden’s political opponents ahead of the 2024 presidential election. “It’s extraordinary,” Bozell said, referring to an MRC study showing how Biden’s political rivals were censored a whopping 162 times. “This is all about free speech.”
Bozell did not mince words in detailing the enormity of the issue. “We looked at this since the beginning of the campaign through Thanksgiving. The number one most-censored man is Vivek Ramaswamy because he’s taken the position questioning the Biden position on climate change,” Bozell added. “Number two is RFK Jr. (17 times) who has taken a position questioning the Biden administration on its COVID mandates. Number three is Nikki Haley, interestingly enough. But the majority of it is because she is the least pro-life Republican candidate calling only for a ban on late-term abortions, and for that, she was censored six times by YouTube.”
Bozell described the widespread censorship running rampant across nearly all major social media companies, but drew particular attention to anti-free speech YouTube, which is owned by Google. “Here’s the interesting one that I think, if you look at all the censorship taking place, it’s not coming from TikTok, it’s not coming from Twitter or X, it’s not coming from Facebook. Twenty-two percent of it is coming from YouTube. Sixty-nine percent of it is coming from Google. Google owns YouTube […] 91% of the censorship that is taking place is coming from one company and one company alone and it’s Google.
As detailed by the MRC report, all 23 presidential candidates have been impacted. However, the censorship has disproportionately impacted the social media accounts of the individuals seeking to replace Biden in 2024. Among those affected include former President Donald J. Trump, tech mogul Vivek Ramaswamy, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Biden’s chief Democratic Party rival RFK Jr who has since decided to run as an independent.
Bozell ripped Big Tech for how incumbent Biden was treated compared to RFK Jr. “Biden was censored over really silly stuff, production technicalities having to do with a couple of his videos. But in the case of RFK Jr., if he talked about either COVID, questioning COVID, the administration on COVID or even talking about his opinion of his own father’s assassination, if it went against what Big Tech, what Google thinks is truth, he wasn’t allowed to have a say. This is all about free speech.”
Bozell also reacted to bombshell reports that embattled first son Hunter Biden agreed to publicly testify before the House Judiciary Committee. “He wants the attention,” Bozell said of the first son requesting a public congressional hearing. “He’s pretty good on his feet. I think he’s going to be able to make this a show with all the Democrats supporting him against the Republicans.”
