“In January, I wrote about a USA Today article centered around a New York University study that supposedly disproved the claim that social media platforms, like Twitter, discriminate against conservatives [sic]. USA Today said, ‘Despite repeated charges of anti-conservative [sic] bias from former President Donald Trump and other GOP critics, Facebook, Twitter and Google’s YouTube are not slanted against right-leaning users.’ … I wrote: ‘Tell this to singer-songwriter John Ondrasik, to cite just one example, who on Jan. 2 posted his new music video critical of President Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. YouTube first attached a warning that the video’s images violated the platform’s ‘graphic content policy,’ making it unsuitable for younger audiences. But five days and 250,000 views later, YouTube removed it altogether.'” (05/05/22)–the-elon-musk-effect-n2606780
