MRC’s Schneider to Wayne DuPree: ChatGPT Propagates Leftist Media Against Conservatives

News & Politics

MRC’s Schneider Exposes Big Tech’s Latest Tools to Silence Conservatives Big Tech is using AI and media ratings firms as new ways to censor conservative voices, but the fight to expose the bias and censorship is underway.

On the Feb. 20 edition of The Wayne DuPree Show, MRC Free Speech America Vice President Dan Schneider raised the alarm that  Big Tech is using its power and influence to remove media critical of the Biden administration from the public’s view. Schneider said that platforms such as Google, Meta and ChatGPT “are trying to radicalize the whole world”  in the “worst possible ways” with their censorship tactics. According to Schneider, these platforms are using ratings from media outlets notorious for their bias, Ad Fontes and NewsGuard, to prevent companies from advertising on right-leaning media websites.

To illustrate this important point, Schneider used the example of host Wayne DuPree’s eponymous show.” Schneider explained that the leftist media takes issue with DuPree spreading a conservative message: “Once [Big Tech companies] understand that Wayne is an effective communicator, they’re going to try to take him out.”

To do this, Schneider explained, Big Tech companies “use these ratings firms like NewsGuard and Ad Fontes to tell companies, ‘Don’t advertise on Wayne’s show because we’ve got to drive him out of business’” Schneider pointed out that this is happening for multiple right-leaning media outlets, including The Daily Wire, The Daily Signal and MRC’s flagship news site NewsBusters. Previous MRC Free Speech America studies have exposed both NewsGuard’s and Ad Fontes’s ratings as being disproportionately favorable for left-wing media outlets. 

But it gets worse. Schneider exposed the way that AI models such as ChatGPT are getting in on the censorship. Schneider explained that if one were to use ChatGPT as a gauge for the reliability of news sources, they would favor leftist outlets such as The Washington Post, NPR and PBS, and leave out right-leaning media. This is meant to prevent readers from visiting non-legacy media sites and to scare companies from placing advertising on those sites, as previously reported on NewsBusters.

Conservatives are under attack. Contact your representatives and demand that Big Tech be held to account to mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on hate speech and equal footing for conservatives.
