Media Executive Indicts Big Tech On Charges That They Have Been Seizing “All The Power”

(Tea Party 247) – Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 4 years or just learned that the internet exists, you have most definitely seen how Big Tech has gradually been taking control over the flow of information. We live in the Information Age and with 24/7 access to near live, up to the second coverage of everything that happens in the public eye, it’s more important now than ever that information be allowed to freely flow.

Everything in life seems to revolve around what we see and hear on the news and social media networks. We base our beliefs and life decisions based on what public figures are saying. Many base their world view on the public figures they most closely follow. Big Tech knows all of this and that is exactly why they’ve been working overtime to ensure the information we see agrees with the left’s radical agenda to destroy America and transform it into an Orwellian liberal dystopia.

Newspaper executive Peter Wright, of DMG Media, had some scathing words for Big Tech in a testimony before the House of Lords Communications and Digital Committee Tuesday, in which he indicts Big Tech with secretively developing and changing algorithms for news distribution without giving the industry any kind of indication whatsoever of what they are doing.

Newswars has more:

He accused companies like Google and Facebook of ‘monopoly behaviour’ as they seek to seize ‘all the power’ in online news and advertising.

Wright claims that the Mail’s online daily traffic from Google searches has been diminished by 50 per cent in just one year after the company changed the algorithm for news content in 2019.

“Google and Facebook in our view are market dominant companies and they behave in the way that market dominant companies do,” Wright stated, noting that it is significantly impacting journalism.

“Google and Facebook both distribute our content via algorithm. Those algorithms are what is known in the digital world as a ‘black box’ – they are secret, you have no idea how they work. But we can see and measure the results,” Wright said.

Wright also implied that the Mail’s pro Brexit stance led to it being targeted by big tech for diminished online distribution.

He noted that last June “over the space of three days, our search visibility, which is the measure of how often your content is appearing against a basket of search terms, dropped by 50 per cent, and it was particularly marked against some particular terms. One of them for instance was ‘Brexit’.”

Wright noted that after his group protested, normality eventually returned.

“But this is monopoly behaviour. You can’t do this if you’re in a business relationship with someone where there’s any semblance of equality of power,” he urged.

Wright noted that Google and Facebook are not regulated and so they are getting away with a secretive takeover of content.

“As far as the commercial relationship between news publishers and the platforms is concerned, it’s a business relationship between two partners in which one partner has all the power,” Wright declared.

“Even the contracts that we sign to use their services are often presented to us on a take-it-or-leave-it basis. So what we’re asking for here is for regulation, and the CMA (Competition and Markets Authority) are about to report on a massive piece of work they’ve been doing, to address the complete imbalance in the business relationship,” Wright asserted.

Regulation is exactly what the tech industry needs. Big Tech has been allowed to literally shape the political landscapes with their own (progressive) biases of both the UK and the US with little to no repercussions from either government.

Not only has this directly impacted and interfered with our Democratic processes it’s also proven to be a very dangerous thing in light of the recent riots that have terrorized cities all across the US and even around Europe. Radical leftist organizers have easily been able to assemble massive crowds of like-minded anarchists without interference from social media companies who easily shutdown and censor conservative efforts, while the supportive, biased, dishonest and apologist leftist media gets priority in Google searches and visibility.

It’s high-time for the governments around the world to take action to put Big Tech’s powers in check.

  2. Take away their Sec 230 immunity/protection ASAP! This may also be a case to be made for seditious conspiracy against the USA for attempting to take down the US government by destroying the election process. Interference over which we have no control affects the USA faith in the process. Just because they make rules does not give them the authority for our information to be abused to gain their goals for the US government.That violates several US laws and codes. 18 USC Par 2384 “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, OR BY FORCE TO PREVENT, HINDER, OR DELAY THE EXECUTION OF ANY LAW OF THE UNITED STATES, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”

  3. Look at this. Only two comments in this stinking comment section and they are those ridiculous, “I make umpteen bazillian dollars a week” malvertisments. Here a media executive tells us what everybody knows except the governments apparently and only these two “opinions” probably from the same person are left here in the comment areas. No wonder Google and Facebook (the worst things that ever happened to the world) just do whatever they want. Nobody even cleans up this trash on the sites that they maintain.

  4. It’s about time to put the brakes on these companies….Forget freedom of speech if you happen to disagree with their propaganda….

  5. Why do you jack asses post ridiculous posts about making money totally unrelated to the content? Is it because you are Chinese robonuts who get paid for a post to these sites? Your secret plot is uncovered and you waste our time. So our government will see your devious practices and smack you good with penalties. You should stop before you are caught and handed a heavy fine and censorship of your ability to post!
    As well , it is high time these tech/ media giants get section 230 protection removed and sued to the hilt and WIN BIG! We have seen this getting worse and worse, especially before the elections, and guess what this is election interference! There are already class action suits being prepared by our digital soldiers who have enough proof to knock you out of existence. America has free speech and you have reached too far into darkness and Marxist takeovers. No more! We will make sure you never exist again!

    • Kathleen, you just may have hit on something that I had not previously considered. The prospect that all these spammers are on the CCP payroll is definitely intriguing! This should be investigated in-depth by the appropriate authorities!
