Mike Tyson Podcast With Alex Jones Censored After Pressure From Big Tech

See behind the scenes footage from the banned episode.

A much hyped interview that was set to be broadcast on boxing legend Mike Tyson’s Hotboxin’ podcast with Alex Jones was censored after Tyson’s production company reportedly came under pressure from Big Tech and other outside groups.

Tyson reached out to Jones in early April, telling him that he was a listener and a fan before inviting him to appear on his iconic podcast.

Jones and his team then flew out to meet Tyson and his production team before filming what was set to be a groundbreaking interview.

During the conversation, Jones and Tyson covered a multitude of deep and thought provoking issues, no doubt helped by mushrooms and pot consumed during the podcast.

Although Jones and Tyson immediately hit it off and the podcast went well, during the interview, Tyson pointed at two or three people in his production crew who he said had warned him that Jones was a “villain” and not to give him a platform.

While the people in Tyson’s production crew who Jones personally dealt with were pleasant and enthusiastic, it appears as though others were more nervous about the podcast.

Over a month went by without the podcast airing, during which time Tyson facetimed Jones and assured him that the episode would be uploaded soon.

However, the very next day one of Tyson’s assistants called to reveal that although the production crew were fighting to have it released, the production company itself had caved and decided to censor the interview.

It was also revealed that the reason for doing so was that the production company had come under pressure from YouTube and other outside interest groups that demanded the podcast never see the light of day.

The entire farce once again underscores the lightening scope of censorship, where Big Tech and other political interest groups can step in to stop a conversation between two icons being broadcast in America, a country founded on freedom of speech.

Weaponized censorship is now such an ingrained modus operandi for the regime, they exercise the power not only to ban individuals from platforms, but to ban them from appearing on other shows, silencing them from engaging in the public arena entirely.

While Tyson obviously demanded that the podcast episode be released, the fact that even a megastar as big as him can be muzzled is a damning indictment of the abusive power that has been accrued by the de facto Ministry of Truth that is Big Tech.

Jones and his team had a feeling the podcast interview might be censored, so they recorded a separate interview with Tyson, as well as filming some behind the scenes footage from his own podcast.

That footage can be viewed below.

Whether the original interview ever sees the light of day remains unsure, although public pressure to have it released could be a defining factor.

New York Times Worries That Big Tech Won’t Censor Hard Enough During Midterm Elections

Complains about success of ‘2000 Mules’.

Published

The New York Times has published an article expressing its concerns that Big Tech platforms like Facebook and Twitter aren’t doing enough to censor “misinformation” in the run-up to the midterm elections.

The article complains that Meta (Facebook) has slashed its ‘election misinformation’ team from 300 people during 2020 to just 60 people and that Mark Zuckerberg no longer meets with the team directly.

Civil rights groups are also apparently upset that Zuckerberg is less interested in communicating with them about efforts to stop ‘election misinformation’.

According to the piece, Twitter is also likely to be less censorious towards election information due to the likelihood that it is about to be purchased by Elon Musk.

“I’m concerned,” President of the NAACP Derrick Johnson told the newspaper. “It appears to be out of sight, out of mind.”

Noting that there are numerous political candidates running for office in 2022 who agree with Donald Trump that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, the Times laments that Meta’s reduction in censorship “could have far-reaching consequences as faith in the U.S. electoral system reaches a brittle point.”

The article also whines about the viral success of Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary ‘2000 Mules’, which received over a million views on alternative video hosting platform Rumble and also received 430,000 “interactions” on Facebook, proof according to the newspaper that election misinformation is “rampant” online.

Representatives from both Facebook and Twitter responded by assuring the Times that they are still keenly focused on censoring election “misinformation.”

“Before the 2020 US presidential election, Big Tech platforms deployed unprecedented levels of censorship by censoring then-President Donald Trump numerous times, banning popular pro-Trump groups, and more,” writes Reclaim the Net.

“Post-election, this mass censorship continued with President Trump being permanently banned by all the major tech platforms, discussions of “widespread fraud or errors” changing the 2020 US presidential election outcome being banned, free speech platform Parler (which many users had flocked to in an attempt to escape Big Tech’s censorship) being deplatformed by the tech giants, and more.”

“The mainstream media and Big Tech used the vague, subjective term “election misinformation” to justify this silencing of a sitting US President and the mass censorship of election-related speech.

The legacy media is once again likely to weaponize hyper-partisan ‘fact checkers’ to ensure that information which isn’t completely censored is at least shadow banned and relegated by algorithms so fewer Americans will see it.

“I Don’t Believe in Censoring Art”: Paramount CEO Rejects Trigger Warnings

“You don’t have to watch anything you don’t want to.”

Published

Paramount CEO Bob Bakish has refused to add trigger warnings to the company’s historical content, asserting, “I don’t believe in censoring art.”

Bakish says the back catalogue for the film studio’s new subscription streaming service Paramount+ will not be censored to please modern politically correct sensibilities.

“By definition, you have some things that were made in a different time and reflect different sensibilities,” Bakish said.

“I don’t believe in censoring art that was made historically, that’s probably a mistake. It’s all on-demand – you don’t have to watch anything you don’t want to.”

As we have previously highlighted, other streaming platforms and broadcasters have censored or outright deleted old shows and movies for containing so-called ‘offensive’ content.

Earlier this year, UK streaming platform ITV Player censored a “homophobic” line from the 2002 Spiderman movie when Spiderman says to Bonesaw, “That’s a cute outfit. Did your husband give it to you?”

During the height of the 2020 Black Lives Matter riots, UK broadcaster Sky also tagged numerous movies, some little over a decade old, with a message warning viewers that they might be offensive.

“This film has outdated attitudes, language and cultural depictions which may cause offence today,” stated the trigger warning.

During the same year, PBS removed Gone With the Wind from its platform, in the process erasing the first black female actress to win an Oscar, while the BBC also announced it was removing Little Britain from its schedule despite the fact that the TV comedy series satirizes every demographic, often highlighting small minded attitudes of bigots.

Last year, NBC also announced that it was scanning 17,000 hours of past WWE content to weed out “racist” material in order to avoid it appearing on the network’s new Peacock streaming device.

Iconic historical books are also being re-written to reflect ‘modern attitudes’, including George Orwell’s 1984.

Spotify Censors Rapper For Criticizing Pride Month

“You can rap about killing people all day and be fine though.”

Published

Spotify has censored a song by rapper Bryson Gray in which he criticizes gay pride month, with song having been ‘greyed out’ by the streaming giant and made unavailable for download.

The pro-Trump rapper released the song ‘Pride Month’ on June 1st to coincide with the start of the annual period that recognizes the LGBT movement.

“In the song, Gray criticises the LGBT community from a Christian perspective, rapping about transgender activists pushing children onto puberty blockers at twelve years old, the promotion of LGBT motifs by media such as Netflix, and other topics,” writes Jack Hadfield.

The lyrics to the song reference bible verses about homosexuality.

Real Christ Gang
I don’t recognize no pride month
Revelation twenty one eight, you thought He lied huh?
What happened to Sodom and Gomorrah?
They all fried huh?
Y’all keep disrespecting Yah like He won’t slide huh?
I’m just tryna make it in them Heaven gates
Repent and turn from sin or be reprobate
Pride a deadly sin but y’all celebrate
If you don’t become new then only Hell awaits

After being on the platform for 2 weeks, Gray revealed that Spotify had censored the song by removing it completely from his artist page.

“I am the ONLY music artist that this happens to without any resolution,” complained Gray.

The rapper noted how his song had been censored for ‘homophobia’ and yet tracks released by best selling artists like Eminem DMX, and Kendrick Lamar which contain brazen homophobic slurs remained untouched.

“Eminem made a song called ‘Fall,’ which was on his Kamikaze album a few years ago, and in the song he calls Tyler the Creator the word that gay people hate, the f-word… It’s right here, free to listen to. How about the other songs where Eminem said the same exact word? Like, the ‘Marshall Mathers’ song, or how about his song, ‘Rap God,’ where he literally says he will break a table over the head of the f-word that you can’t say. Nope, you can listen to that song too! And I didn’t even say that word,” said Gray.

Gray also noted how other rappers are allowed to spew all kinds of violent rhetoric, but as soon as someone starts quoting the bible, it’s curtains.

“A lot of these artists cry about censorship but never actually experience censorship,” Gray tweeted. “You want to truly experience it? Start making biblical music. You can rap about killing people all day and be fine though.”

Last year, the streaming platform banned a song called Safe Space that literally opens with the line “they might ban me for this song,” because it contained lyrics critical of the LGBT movement and BLM.

Spotify also previously censored a song by indie music legend Ian Brown for lyrics containing “misinformation”. The lyrics referred to COVID lockdowns and the new world order.
