The Spin

Left narrative

These companies have long been obscuring their role in the spread of disinformation and hate speech - they have fuelled the actions of the far-right.

Right narrative

Social media companies blatantly censor conservative views. Democrats should be defending freedom of speech, but instead stand silent with their Big Tech allies.

Cynical narrative
