Facebook Bans Stalwart Truth Reporting Site Zero Hedge

One by one, social media giant Facebook is whittling out conservative and alternative news sites from its platform. Over the weekend, it’s the latest victim became public knowledge. It is Zero Hedge, a fairly popular news site written for the most part by Tyler Durden and carrying thoroughly researched stories that tell a different side of the day’s news.

Over the weekend, we were surprised to learn that some readers were prevented by Facebook when attempting to share Zero Hedge articles. Subsequently it emerged that virtually every attempt to share or merely mention an article, including in private messages, would be actively blocked by the world’s largest social network, with the explanation that “the link you tried to visit goes against our community standards.”

For those who are casualties of the internet information wars with the giant social media platforms, this is a familiar sight. And a very unwelcome one. In the last five years, dozens of alternative information sites have been bankrupted by this very tactic.

And now the powers that be who want to control all narratives seem to be going after one of the sites with a lot of traffic. Tyler Durden writes:

We were especially surprised by this action as neither prior to this seemingly arbitrary act of censorship, nor since, were we contacted by Facebook with an explanation of what “community standard” had been violated or what particular filter or article had triggered the blanket rejection of all Zero Hedge content….

Alternatively, it is just as possible that Facebook simply decided to no longer allow its users to share our content in retaliation for our extensive coverage of what some have dubbed the platform’s “many problems”, including chronic privacy violations, mass abandonment by younger users, its gross and ongoing misrepresentation of fake users, ironically – in retrospect – its systematic censorship and back door government cooperation (those are just links from the past few weeks).


Or it could just be that Tyler and his crew were and are over a target that the people at Facebook don’t want the world to know.

Whatever the case, Zero Hedge is now banned on one of the major social media platforms. The site joins dozens of others who are in similar dog houses.

  1. Sensoring speech is a Nazi’s favourite propaganda programme so they could lie to the public and no one could question what they were saying it will not be long and the democrat socialist communist party will have its ss supporters out in the streets killing of people who speak against the regime of the democrat socialist communist party i wonder if they will wear the same brown shirts and Jews will be dragged from their houses again but this time it is going to happen in America radical Muslims have already infiltrated the American government taken over certain districts and communities and if anyone says anything they are labeled racist and bought before a leftist judge who will always rule in favour of the minority’s that’s why they are put in place not to hold up American laws but to push Islamic law onto American citizens and they are getting away with it
