CEO Slams Big Tech For Fact-Checking Users

Parler CEO John Matze slammed the world’s largest social media platforms for engaging in partisan behavior during the 2020 presidential election. Matze said that the mere fact that both Twitter and Facebook are fact-checking users indicates bias.

“I don’t think that there’s any perfect group without bias, so in terms of being a platform for transparency and free speech, they’ve gone way too far,” Matze told Fox Business Anchor Maria Bartiromo.

Bartiromo said that she was leaving Twitter after her posts about the election were flagged as misleading. “In this election, we need more transparency and it’s really important,” Matze said.

Parlor is promoted as a non-biased, free speech social media focused on protecting user’s rights.   Matze said Twitter should not be exempt through Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, because the Big Tech company is acting as a publisher.

“This is particularly concerning because President Trump and former Vice President Biden, their campaigns know more about the election than Twitter and Facebook’s fact-checkers,” he said. “They’ve been working on this stuff for years.”

Project Veritas Talks To Michigan Whistelblower

A post office whistleblower in the battleground state of Michigan reveals that his supervisor instructed letter carriers to separate ballot envelopes so clerks could fraudulently hand-postmark them for Nov. 3. Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe interviewed the man via conference call.

O’Keefe said the problem with mail-in ballots stems from the fact that there was never a chain of custody. “Our Project Veritas Insider is taking an enormous risk to get out the truth,” said O’Keefe. Michigan law states that ballots must be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day, Nov. 3, to be counted.

The unidentified postal worker said that he is speaking out because the entire process carried out by USPS workers is “shady”. “As far as I am aware, we’re not supposed to be counting ballots that are postmarked after the third of November here in the state of Michigan.”

There are 16 Electoral College votes at stake in Michigan with the presidential election still up for grabs. The whistleblower said many employees were upset that they were ordered to isolate the ballots.

The Insider said he was shocked when Barlow Branch morning supervisor Jonathan Clarke told a group of mail carriers how late ballots would be handled.

Clark declined to comment on the postmark scheme to Project Veritas.

Project Veritas investigates and exposes corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions to achieve a more ethical and transparent society.
