Big Tech censorship is rearing its ugly head again, just in time for the presidential election. So it should come as no surprise that Twitter’s “Head of Site Integrity” — the guy presumably responsible for “fact-checking” President Trump — is a left-wing Hillary donor with a history of anti-Trump hatred.
Yoel Roth bragged on LinkedIn that he’s in charge of “developing and enforcing Twitter’s rules.”
One of Roth’s “rules” resulted in Twitter disingenuously placing a “misleading” label on President Trump’s tweet warning about mail-in voter fraud (which has been documented over the years).
Predictably, Twitter used the anti-Trump, left-wing media outlets CNN and the Washington Post as its “fact-checking sources.”
Keep in mind that both CNN and the Washington Post have repeatedly been caught pushing fake news that later gets debunked, including the Russia hoax and false claims that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.
In January, CNN settled a $275 million lawsuit for spouting fake news about Catholic high school student Nick Sandmann.
Similarly, the Washington Post was caught pimping fake news that Russia had hacked a U.S. power grid. That was a total lie (among many others).

For years, the Washington Post has also published communist propaganda masquerading as “news” that is paid for by the Chinese Communist Party.
The Washington Post did this for many years. The paper never told its readers that these sections were paid propaganda, so they were fooled into believing that the pro-CCP stories were objective news. WaPo has since started labeling the paid sections amid angry backlash.
Anyway, these are the “fact-checking sources” that Twitter is relying on to “fact-check” Trump.

In response to the disingenuous Twitter label, President Trump ripped the unregulated tech monopoly for election interference.
Why? Because we all know that Twitter will act like bogus “fact-checker” Snopes (which ignores misleading left-wing propaganda and does sham “fact-checks” of conservative viewpoints).
President Trump tweeted: “Twitter is now interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election.”
Twitter’s fact-checking czar, Yoel Roth, has a long history of anti-Trump rants. Keep in mind that fact-checkers are supposed to be objective and unbiased.
The New York Post’s Jon Levine captured several damning screenshots of Roth’s anti-Trump screeds. Among them were tweets calling Trump a “racist tangerine” and trashing his Administration as “actual Nazis.”
Roth also expressed disdain for flyover states (you know, the ones that send their sons to war to fight for our freedoms and who drive the trucks that transport the food that Yoel chokes down his ungrateful gullet every day).
In another tweet, Roth mocked Republican Mitch McConnell as a “personality-free bag of farts” and compared White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway to Nazi propagandist “Joseph Goebbels.”

I’ve never donated to a presidential campaign before, but I just gave $100 to Hillary for America. We can’t fuck around anymore.

Political commentators torched Roth for his over-the-top Trump Derangement Syndrome and slammed Twitter for putting a virulent leftist who despises Trump in charge of “fact-checking.”
Conservative analyst Dan Bongino tweeted: “Twitter made a HUGE mistake. They have now injected themselves into a U.S. election and decided to become editorialists, rather than a platform.”
This means that Twitter has opened itself up to being sued for editorial decisions they make if they defame someone.
“ALL platform protections should be immediately revoked and Twitter should be treated as a publisher,” Bongino wrote. “They did this to themselves.”
Bongino also said “Twitter ‘fact-checkers’ really suck.”
He cited a New York Times story that stated: “Votes cast by mail are less likely to be counted, more likely to be compromised and more likely to be contested than those cast in a voting booth, statistics show.”
Actor James Woods remarked: “If you ever wonder about political bias in Twitter’s algorithms or among their senior staff, take a look at tweets purportedly posted by the “head of site integrity” at Twitter.”
