Video: CNN: Sites Like Spreely & Parler Pose A ‘Threat To Democracy’, Are ‘Bad For The Country’
Apparently CNN does not like the fact that Brian Seltzer and Oliver Darcey can not whine on Twitter about people who have differing political opinions and have them deplatformed on the new social sites like Parler and Spreely. Spreely, of course, is the site that FB exiles, Mark and Terry created in order to create a ‘safe space’ for free speech on social media.
National File| CNN employees Brian Stelter and Pamela Brown displayed a particularly amusing paucity of self-awareness – even by CNN standards – during a discussion about the exodus of Trump supporters from left-wing tech monopolies like Facebook and Twitter this week.
“I think big picture Pamela, here’s the concerning trend line here: people are going more and more into their own echo chambers, more and more into their own bubbles, especially Trump voters,” said Stelter, who is often referred to as CNN’s “house eunuch by conservative pundit tucker Carlson.
“Mhmm, that’s what I was gonna say,” Brown said, nodding in agreement.
“There’s this new social media app called Parler getting a lot of attention because conservatives are leaving, saying they’re leaving Twitter and Facebook, going off to Parler because they believe Parler is a safer space for them,” Stelter continued. “What we’re seeing is even more of a bunker mentality in right-wing media, and ultimately that’s not good for the country.”
Brown then offered up her words of wisdom on the issue: “No, it’s not good, it’s a threat to democracy, um, that these people are in echo chambers and getting fed a diets of lies, essentially.”
It's always a little amusing when @CNN worries people are going into their own partisan bubbles. (Lack of self-awareness????)

CNN’s messaging on alt tech is comes across as even tone deaf when one considers that CNN, like most corporate platforms, does not disavow and in fact actively encourages the ruthless deplatforming of non-progressive viewpoints from social media.
Such deplatforming and censorship is the sole reason why many users of Facebook and Twitter have fled those platforms seeking refuge on Gab, Telegram, and Parler [AND SPREELY.]. Read More At National File
