And Just Like That, DuckDuckGo Becomes Google — One Time Free Search Engine Now Down-Ranks Conservative Content – Bans Gateway Pundit
By Jim Hoft
This morning we received this email from a Gateway Pundit reader:
Last week I noticed it wouldn’t come up at all anymore unless I add the www. In front of it. This morning I noticed even if I type the whole thing now, it doesn’t come up at all.
I just tested the duckduckgo.com search using chrome and searching on www.thegatewaypundit.com does not return your site at all.
As I’m sure you are – getting a bit sick of this.
Thanks Kevin, yes we are. Later today we did a search on gatewaypundit on DuckDuckGo to see what we get.
If you search for The Gateway Pundit on DuckDuckGo they do not even list the front page of our website in their search engine.
And they include the Wikipedia slander and every other major hit piece on The Gateway Pundit instead
We have been disappeared. Despite having millions of readers a day the top articles that pop up for Gateway Pundit include hit pieces that had no traffic.
What adds insult to injury is that the search engines and Big Tech demons will allow knock-off sites to steal our content word-for-word, including photos and video and that is OK. That is approved. This is the evil we are up against.
Today Breitbart posted a report on DuckDuckGo. They have become Google. They are actively censoring conservative content that does not fit their world view.
Popular privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo, commonly considered an alternative to Google, has announced that it will be “down-ranking” sites associated with “disinformation,” along with adding “information boxes” to “highlight quality information.” The announcement received widespread backlash from DuckDuckGo supporters, who view the changes as adopting the censorship policies of the Masters of the Universe.In a recent Twitter post, the CEO of privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo announced that the company would be downranking “sites associated with disinformation,” which has been a popular tactic by Google for years to reduce user access to content it considers objectionable.
DuckDuckGo CEO Gabriel Weinberg tweeted about the decision, stating that it was an effort to reduce Russian disinformation online. “Like so many others I am sickened by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the gigantic humanitarian crisis it continues to create. #StandWithUkraine️,” Weinberg stated, adding: “At DuckDuckGo, we’ve been rolling out search updates that down-rank sites associated with Russian disinformation.”
Weinberg goes on to say that DuckDuckGo will also be placing news modules and information boxes at the top of certain search results to highlight “quality information for rapidly unfolding topics.” This was a method used by many search engines and social media sites during the coronavirus pandemic to push official government narratives and information — that regularly changed drastically — to internet users.
Here are Weinberg’s tweets.
The Founder of Truthbook, said we had so many requests from our users to create an alternative search engine that doesn’t censor that we decided to make it a reality.
The website and an app for Truthlook will be ready soon to register before it’s a soft launch.
Other innovations to come included an App like Facebooks messenger to make it easy to keep in touch with friends on truthbook.social and a Telegram style app, considering countries such as Brazil and soon others move to ban the app.
Truthbook.social is a growing social media platform that started accepting users mid laser year, well before Trumps Truth.social official launch. There is actually two Truth social’s when it comes to social media companies, and Trumps wasn’t the first, and he could face massive lawsuits for using a similar name.
Truthbook.social: The social media platform Truthbook.social, also known as ANR Social, is built by the people for the people, a force for good. Powered by Australian National Review an independent, not-for-profit news media company, built by the people for the people, as well. Truthbook.social not to be confused with Truth.social, is growing fast, no doubt as it’s backed by Global Independent Media who have many readers deserting traditional platforms like Facebook and Instagram from the “censoring” of anyone not adhering to the false Covid narrative being pushed.
It is censor free and privacy-protected, it combines the best of YouTube Features for uploading videos, plus Telegram and Facebook type features for ease of sharing articles or content and to keep in touch with family and friends privately and securely away from the eyes of the Government Agencies.
To combat the censoring, and banning of those who speak the truth, and those who are seeking the truth, Truthbook.social is everything Fake Book isn’t.
Truth coin www.truthcoin.social, Truthbook’s currency, will enable us all to share the truth via Truthbook.social. Truthcoin is not just a Global Payment system, it is Truthbook’s currency like Facebook has Libra, but it will also help fund the growth of Truthbook.social to compete against the large multi-billion dollar competitors.
