Another day, another gatekeeper

One would think conservatives would stop falling for the traps that gatekeepers are laying for them, but then, they are conservatives. Now we’re being told Rumble is the new Parler:

Glenn Greenwald has urged internet users to leave behind YouTube’s ceaseless content-policing and migrate to Rumble, after he and a group of prominent pundits set up shop at the laissez-faire video platform. The veteran journalist, along with former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard and several other well-known commentators, have joined Rumble’s “deep pool of content talent,” the company said in a press release on Thursday. As part of the agreement, Rumble will provide the all-star content creators with resources to help them produce videos that will be exclusive to the site for a limited time.

The platform’s popularity has skyrocketed, experiencing a 25-fold increase in viewership over the past year.

Under the deal, Greenwald will continue his ‘System Update’ video program that he began while still at the Intercept and continued when he took up independent reporting at Substack. The show will appear on Rumble two hours before it is published elsewhere.

It’s not clear how much Greenwald is being compensated for the move, but he said the “ample funding package” would be used to pay for a “highly professionalized form of video.”

Translation: like Substack, Rumble is paying for “pundits” and recognizable “influencers” to use their platform. Of course, they’ll exert exactly the same content control that all the SJW-controlled platforms do, they just won’t be as obvious about it at first.

No thanks. I’ll stick with Unauthorized.
