Right Side Broadcasting Network did everything they could to prevent offending content from making it onto their YouTube channel when they livestreamed CPAC last week. The muted MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell when he started talking against Covid vaccines. They cut away from panels that were discussing voter fraud. They gave disclaimers and made their audience aware that such discussions were considered to be offensive by YouTube.
In the end, it didn’t matter because they chose to air the full speech by Donald Trump. For that, they received their second YouTube strike in 90 days which resulted in a two week suspension.
Update: YouTube removed the CPAC Trump speech and suspended us for two weeks. https://t.co/nyh2vCOHVJ

YouTube has been downright oppressive with their coverup of the 2020 presidential election fraud. They’ve recently added Covid vaccine discussions to their list of items not allowed in their community standards. As I posted on Monday following CPAC, this type of draconian policing of anything contrary to the accepted narrative has forced many conservative news outlets to self-censor in an effort to maintain the business models they built on YouTube.
Some have called for RSBN and others to move to Rumble, the video platform that is much stronger in the free speech department than YouTube and other alternatives. But RSBN relies on livestreaming which Rumble has yet to perfect. Their attempt to push livestreaming during the event had flaws.
Our own Freedom First Network channel was recently banned and my NOQ Report channel received it’s first official strike as well, giving us a one-week suspension. As a result, we’ve decided to move all of our content to Locals where free speech is embraced. We do have a Rumble channel as well.
With Big Tech actively censoring conservatives, it behooves us to stop engaging on them. There will be pain as we try to build on free-speech-friendly networks, but in the long term it will be worth it.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report has appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. One of our YouTube accounts was banned and another has been suspended. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancelation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects. These questions are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting cancelled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $5300 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
