Zero Hedge: Documents leaked to Project Veritas by a Pinterest insider reveal that the San Francisco-based social media company has blocked links from Zero Hedge and several conservative or religious-based websites – adding them to a ‘porn domain block list’ originally intended to keep the platform free of sexually explicit material.

Veritas has published several internal documents and interviewed the insider, who explained how the company with nearly 300 million active monthly users censors pro-life and Christian content.

The leak reveals an aggressive campaign to censor conservative content under the guise of ‘hate speech’ and ‘fake news.’ more …

Opinion: Three definitions:

Project Veritas was started by James Edward O’Keefe III (born June 28, 1984), an American conservative political activist. He produces secretly recorded undercover audio and video encounters with figures and workers in academic, governmental, and social service organizations, purporting to show abusive or allegedly illegal behavior by employees and/or representatives of those organizations. He has been criticized for selectively editing videos to misrepresent the context of the conversations and the subjects’ responses, creating the false impression that people said or did things they did not.

Pinterest, Inc. is a social media web and mobile application company. It operates a software system designed to enable discovery of information on the World Wide Web using images and, on a smaller scale, GIFs and videos.

Zero Hedge is described as a “markets-focused” blog, that presents both in-house analysis, and analysis from investment banks, hedge funds, and other investment writers and analysts

Porn? Really?

Zero Hedge is a news headline site, like Drudge Report or Breitbart or thousands of other news sites. What Zero Hedge does not do is what we do, opine on Christian/conservative issues complete with OT and NT Biblical verses pointing to Biblical prophecy.

Our recent addition of daily blog posts and headlines to Facebook has indeed proven that censorship is happening routinely. In the first weeks with FB we received this notice several times:

“Your post goes against our community standards, so only you can see it”

It is hard to tell if/when censorship is taking place. Our small site flies under radar since we have never applied for non-profit status, do not seek donations or go fund me programs, and do not advertise. We do know, however, that after over 20,000 posts, it is very rare that we come across our own site when researching a particularly controversial topic, and it used to happen all the time.

  1. Big media has to prep the voting public for a progressive outcome in 2020. After the Trump victory and his use of social media to win, I would imagine that the dems will filter everything with even a hint of the republican agenda.
