(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Brian Andersson, a former New York City Commissioner, has stated that Big Tech’s interference compromised the 2020 presidential election and that “the recent Twitter Files prove it.”
Andersson was referring to the release of Twitter records by the platform’s new owner Elon Musk, showing the Big Tech company censored “lost laptop” revelations about Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son, right ahead of the 2020 presidential vote.
“Now we know that Big Tech took steps to stop [former President Donald] Trump before and after the election,” the former NYC official said on Newsmax’s “The Chris Salcedo Show.”
Andersson served as New York City’s Commissioner of Records and Archives from 2002 until 2010.
“The Twitter files show that executives there actively sought to suppress Trump and Trump supporters before the election,” he pointed out.
“In Facebook’s case, we know that Mark Zuckerberg spent $400 million to harvest ballots in inner cities in ballot box collections that they call drop boxes and in all heavily Democratic cities,” New York City’s former chief archivist said.
He emphasized that multiple studies proved Google’s search results were modeled to benefit Biden and the Democrats.
“It gets worse. Google’s Gmail put all the Trump campaign emails and Republican candidate emails into spam boxes. Meanwhile, all the Biden emails went to the inboxes of their supporters,” Andersson stressed.
The Newsmax report added that “Google’s Gmail strategy cost the GOP nearly a billion dollars in contributions, and the tech giant is now being sued by the RNC over the move,” as email features prominently on political campaigns’ tools for reaching supporters.
The former New York City Commissioner then disputed “Section 230,” an exemption in a law on early Internet regulation. Under it, the likes of Facebook, Google, and Twitter are treated as platforms, not publishers, and cannot be sued for defamation.
“They’re not neutral and they are publishers. We know that they do decide who can be on and they openly censor people. Twitter. Facebook. Google. You know, the triumvirate,” Andersson stated.
“They censored Trump, they censored Newsmax, and yes, Fox News. Almost all conservative media got censored, especially if you talked about voting issues, vaccines, China’s involvement in COVID,” he elaborated.
Former NYC Commissioner said the Big Tech companies evade accountability by stating banned content “violates community standards.”
“They define what those standards are,” Andersson said.
He advised conservatives to back the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) because it would deal Big Tech a blow.
The bill is to be reviewed by the current lame-duck Congress. It would oblige Facebook and Google to pay money to small publishers for any of their content they use.
