TAMMY BRUCE (GUEST HOST): But first, tech companies are taking the lead in suppressing any voices that dissent against the left. In the past few days, Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and other companies have all banned Alex Jones from using their platforms. Also Twitter purged various libertarian accounts, Instagram temporarily banned Tommy Robinson and Facebook took down a GOP candidates' ads for allegedly being offensive. And a Democratic Senator Chris Murphy says mass censorship is needed to ensure quote, "the survival of the democracy", end quote.
NIGEL FARAGE: I would say that by banning Jones, by shadow banning many others, Facebook and others are now effectively becoming a publisher and that means, because they are taking editorial decisions, they should be open to being sued as other media organizations are.
