Independent media is being purged from social media platforms at an alarming rate. Facebook has been banning pages with millions of fans and followers for no stated reason. Twitter has already been shadow banning content creators for years but is now outright banning dissenting voices from its platform. YouTube is deleting channels without warning on a regular basis. Meanwhile, mainstream media is becoming increasingly consolidated and centralized. In the 1990s, around 50 corporations owned all the media in the US, whereas now only 6 corporations control 90% of all media in the United States. There is an illusion of a free marketplace for ideas and debate in American and Global Media, when in fact powerful platforms are deciding which thoughts, ideas and messages the public will be allowed to hear, discuss and debate. But there’s good news…the free market has responded with an alternative platform as a solution to this blatant censorship! Enter Isegoria, a collaboration of independent journalists and entertainers which will have two parts: Part 1 is the 24 hour streaming platform and Part 2 is the treasury that funds independent creators. In this video Dan Dicks of Press For Truth speaks with investigative journalist Ben Swann CEO of Isegoria about this new decentralized platform that seeks to empower both the content creator and the content consumer by utilizing blockchain technology in the interest of both supporting free speech and eradicating unfair censorship.
