Facebook Bans Natural News After Daily Beast Hit Piece

Once again, Big Tech capitulates to the leftist activists in media.

Published

Facebook has removed the page of Natural News, dubbed a “conspiracy site” after The Daily Beast complained about the site’s presence on the tech giant’s platform Saturday.

“Natural News has nearly 3 million Facebook followers, more than Infowars and Alex Jones combined before Facebook banned them from the platform last summer,” Daily Beast said.

“You might never have clicked on a Natural News article, but you’ve probably felt its influence. The site is one of the largest brokers of far-right conspiracy theories, including disinformation about vaccines. Natural News has spent the past 10 years moving from relatively innocent claims about the benefits of herbal remedies, to full-blown culture war, with a side business of selling survivalist gear.”

Sunday, the site was removed from Facebook, which was followed by a gleeful victory lap in The Daily Beast.

“Facebook on Sunday removed the page for Natural News, a far-right conspiracy outlet that had nearly 3 million followers. Facebook did not immediately return a request for comment,” that report said.

“Natural News’ founder Mike Adams wrote on fellow-right wing conspiracy site Infowars that his site was ‘permanently banned’ from posting. He told the Gateway Pundit, another far-right site, that the apparent ban is evidence of a conspiracy against his website.”

Both stories were written by Kelly Weill, who did not immediately return a request for comment.

Journalist Tim Pool highlighted the new trend of media de-platforming activism.

“Don’t you see how the game is played yet? Media today is not seeking to inform, they are seeking to destroy for political ends,” he said on Twitter.

The de-platforming of Natural News comes after a week-long lobbying effort by Vox “reporter” Carlos Maza to have right-wing YouTuber Steven Crowder kicked off the platform. YouTube eventually de-monitized Crowder’s account.

New York Times Writer Blames Evangelical Christians for Chinese Coronavirus

Not China’s Communist Party.

Published

on

A New York Times writer published a column largely assigning blame for America’s Chinese coronavirus epidemic on Evangelical Christians.

In Stewart’s column, titled ‘The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response,’ she frames conservative Christians for a supposed lacking national effort to contain the disease. Stewart alleges that Christians within the administration are preventing the federal government from recognizing ‘science,’ repeating a trope long alleged by liberals that their political opponents are supposedly ignorant of the discipline.
In the article, Stewart claims that “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.”

She fails that recognize that scientific experts on viral outbreaks such as Dr. Anthony Fauci have informed the federal government’s response since the beginning of the crisis.

Stewart fails to mention that it was progressive liberals across the world who largely opposed international travel bans, a scientifically verifiable means of virus transmission and spread. The European Union lagged well behind the United States and Canada in placing curbs on travel across borders.

Perhaps most egregiously, she fails to even so much as assign any culpability for America’s coronavirus epidemic on the Chinese Communist Party, which failed to so much as even admit the scale of the problem as the disease first took the form of a true public health pandemic in China. The CCP’s negligent cover-up of the coronavirus epidemic in undoubtedly the most ‘unscientific’ governmental approach to the virus, with grave consequences. And China’s authoritarian leaders are by no means conservative Christians.

Stewart’s reaching move to blame Evangelicals for the coronavirus outbreak in America is merely a reactionary take from a cultural liberal seeking to impute political commentary in the midst of a pandemic.
