    Twitter Permanently Suspends Jim Hoft, Proprietor of Conspiracy-Peddling Pro-Trump Blog The Gateway Pundit

    Another pro-Trump Twitter account bit the dust on Saturday: Jim Hoft, the proprietor of the right-wing blog The Gateway Pundit, was permanently banned from the social media network.

    News of Hoft’s suspension broke earlier this evening, with many journalists commenting on The Gateway Pundit’s penchant for publishing unproven claims and conspiracy theories. Hoft and the other writers on his site have been staunch defenders of former President Donald Trump, including promoting some of his baseless claims of election fraud and other misinformation.

    CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy contacted Twitter for comment and a company spokesperson told him, “The account was permanently suspended for repeated violations of our civic integrity policy.”

    Gateway Pundit had eye witness testimony and then produced a video that 100% corroborated the eye witness testimony so Gateway Pundit committed the ultimate sin of corroboration and video proof. How dare they!

    Lou Dobbs show (top rated) on Fox news is gone too in the wake of doing the same especially now that they many shows are being cancelled in the wake of massive lawsuits in reaction to what these idiots have been doing...pure quackery.
    Jeanine Pirro and Maria Bartiromo days are numbered too. Maybe they all should move over to the misfits Newsmax. :rolleyes:

    New Twitter App Blocks Over 800 New York Times Journos In "Fight Against Disinformation"

    A new Twitter app encourages people to 'fight disinformation' by blocking over 800 New York Times reporters.


    "It's time to block," reads an introductory tweet from @blocknyt ( "Twitter users have begun mass-blocking New York Times-linked accounts to control the flood of corporate disinformation online."

    "For a limited time, block 800 NYT reporters for the low price of $0," the tweet continues.

    When one visits the website, created five weeks ago, they're greeted with several mock articles detailing the Times' failings.

    "The New York Times Company now faces an economic and reputational reckoning. Employees are revolting, traffic is plummeting, colleagues are scathing, and readers are blocking," reads one teaser.

    "Cade Metz and Pui-Wing Tam, senior employees of the New York Times Company, set out to intentionally reveal the identity of a private citizen against his will. An outcry ensued, and the paper backed down, but the damage was done," reads another.

    Once authorized, the app automatically blocks the journalists - and then tells you that you can uninstall it.

    Some Twitter users thought it was such a great idea, they want one for other mainstream media journalists.

    Caveat emptor: We have no idea who's behind the app, nor what they do with the permissions given upon installation.
