CensorTrack with TR: Jokes are Funny, Big Tech’s Censorship Is Not

It’s Episode Fourteen of MRC’s newest video series, Track TR with CensorTrack This week we talked about satire sites, funny memes and tweeting jokes … all of which Big Tech censored.

The Babylon Bee is a satirical news site whose slogan is “Fake News You Can Trust.” Though the site releases articles that are purposely false and intended for humor, Big Tech censors it on a regular basis. 

A Thanksgiving old meme was resurrected and circulated online last week. It featured a PSA dissuading marajuana consumption. The PSA featured the Ad Council logo, even though it was fake advertising. Since its reappearance and Big Tech’s love of censorship, Facebook and Instagram fact checkers from USA Today flagged the meme as false. 

Spoiler alert, it is false. The ad also reads “If you or someone you know is addicted to marijuana, call Domino’s at 215-712-1000, rent a tape and enjoy!” Though it is evident that the ad was a joke, fact checkers wanted to give it a label just in case someone took the ad seriously. 

USA Today wasted time last week by fact-checking a post in which Jen Psaki, White House press secretary suggested Taco Bell as a Thanksgiving meal to combat inflation. The post originally came from Beep Satire’s Instagram, whose bio reads, “Satire, jokes, & media flops. 100% fake news made for you.” USA Today even went so far as to check White House official transcripts to verify that Psaki did not in fact call for Taco Bell Thanksgiving. 

Conservative commentator Amy CurtisResponded to postMy joke regarding vaccines and pie. She said: “Cut my pie like this and I’ll stab you with the meat fork.”  Twitter forced Curtis to remove her post and she was placed in a “12 hour timeout.” 

On Monday, November 29, Jack Dorsey was elected Twitter’s CEO. His departure however does not dismiss Twitter’s abuse of conservative, humorous content and users online. Big Tech approves only what is in line with left-leaning views, even jokes.
