In an interview with Gabe Kaminsky of the Washington Examiner, radio hall of famer Glenn Beck exposed a government-funded blacklist full of conservative names in media.
“Organizations are feeding secret blacklists to advertising companies with the intent of shutting down and defunding disfavored speech,” said Kaminsky.
If that wasn’t enough, the U.S. government has been funding the Global Disinformation Index (GDI), an organization dedicated to limiting advertising funding for those spreading “disinformation.”
The GDI has compiled a Dynamic Exclusion List, filled with both individuals and organizations that promote disinformation.
As always, conservatives are the ones being targeted. Among the most “dangerous” outlets are companies such as Blaze Media, the Daily Wire, and Newsmax.
The blacklist is provided to large advertisers, including Microsoft and Xander.
“What gives these people the expertise to make that determination?” asked Beck.
Apparently, the GDI is stacked with left-leaning journalists and professors. What a surprise. According to the GDI, BuzzFeed News and the HuffPost are reputable and informative sites with minimal bias.
Of the organization’s list of the top 10 “riskiest” news sources, Glenn said, “I don’t see a single liberal on here, and I see almost every single conservative.”
“The government has granted $330,000 to the Global Disinformation Index through … the Global Engagement Center and … the National Endowment for Democracy … that is funded almost entirely through congressional appropriations,” Kaminsky said.
“How is this going to be cleaned up?” Beck asked.
“A lot of Americans are hoping the members of Congress can take adequate steps to investigate this situation. In particular, because this really feeds into a lot that was revealed in the Twitter files between public and private partnerships,” Kaminsky answered.
