Ben Shapiro’s social media postings, as well as other prominent conservative voices such as Dan Bongino and Candace Owens, are “a problem for democracy,” according to President Barack Obama’s former senior advisor and MSNBC guest Dan Pfeiffer.
Pfeiffer went on a tirade and ranted against “misinformation from conservatives” on Monday, during an interview with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski for MSNBC. Then he urged Big Tech to change its algorithms.
“If you go on Facebook on a daily basis, the most engaging content is from Candace Owens, Ben Shapiro, and Dan Bongino. It is right-wing media material. It vastly outweighs progressive material. The fact that it has more followers and engagement — a lot more than the NY Times or CNN — is a concern for democracy,” Pfeiffer continued.
Pfeiffer, to his credit, spent much of his airtime complimenting conservative media’s reach and popularity. He had no clue what he was doing.
After that, Pfeiffer referred to conservative social media platforms as the “tobacco companies of today.”
“So you’re saying that, like, the GOP agenda is supported by the freaks on Facebook, and they do not want to do anything about it?” Brzezinski added.
“Absolutely,” Pfeiffer stated. “To be crystal clear, Facebook is the most effective messaging platform for the ultra-MAGA message. That helps the Republicans.”
“They love to whine about Big Tech and Facebook, then they just laugh on their way to the bank when Facebook merely delivers their message, including the Big Lie,” Pfeiffer noted.
This sequence of events demonstrates how conservative media is influencing the culture. Giving thanks to The Daily Wire for their efforts, even if the mainstream establishment frowns upon it.
This is precisely why Biden’s “Ministry of Truth” was so heavily pushed, and why corporate news outlets like MSNBC are so eager to silence voices on the other side of the political fence for any material they consider to be “misinformation.”
Everything Pfeiffer said pulls back the curtain and loudly states the obvious: how these folks think. And how they want to leverage Big Tech, such as Facebook and Twitter, to silence people who express controversial views on them.
