On Monday, March 22, 2021, The Heartland Institute and the Media Research Center held a Zoom webinar at 1:00 p.m. CST, on how to defeat Big Tech censorship, titled, Toe to Toe with Big Tech Titans: How states can protect freedom of speech. View the Zoom video here.
Featured were Heartland Institute experts James Taylor, President of The Heartland Institute and Cameron Sholty, Heartland’s Director of Government Relations, and Brent Bozell, founder and president of the Media Research Center. Jim Lakely, Vice President of Heartland and Director of Communications, fielded the question submitted during the Zoom webinar.
Opening remarks were made by Brent Bozell. As Bozell’s remarks were quite lengthy, to do justice to them Thorner decided to present Heartland’s Zoom presentation in two parts. To follow is Part 1 featuring Mr. Bozell’s cogent remarks about the nature of the Big Tech Titans.
According to Mr. Bozell: “You can’t have a functioning democracy if you can’t have freedom of speech. What you’re seeing is that the future of speech, not just in America, but in the world, is, through social media and the giants of social media, actively engaging in the censorship of that very speech.”
“Although you can argue and we will argue that big media and social media together stole the 2020 election, it was from the standpoint of withholding information from the American people which had they known about would have dramatically changed the outcome. 36% of Biden’s voters had no idea of Hunter Biden’s scandal.”
