Founder and president of the Internet Accountability Project Mike Davis joined Tucker Carlson on the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday to discuss big tech’s campaign to censor conservative voices.
New York University researchers published a study Monday claiming there is no conservative censorship.
The study titled, “False Accusation: The Unfounded Claim that Social Media Companies Censor Conservatives” states that claims of anti-conservative bias are “a form of disinformation: a falsehood with no reliable evidence to support it.”
“No trustworthy large scale studies have determined that conservative content is being removed for ideological reasons or that searches are being manipulated to favor liberal interests,” the study continues.
Carlson labelled the study “farcical” and “utterly fraudulent.”
Davis explained that this study, funded by a “tech oligarch,” was done to protect big tech corporations.
“You’re dealing with these big tech corporations trying to protect their interests,” Davis said. “We have CraigsList founder, a billionaire, funding this study and then the study relies upon Facebook, Google and Twitter employees to find out whether there’s conservative censorship and the people they’re not asking about conservative censorship are conservatives.”
“And so of course, they didn’t find any censorship just like the tobacco industry didn’t find any problems with tobacco in kids.”
Davis noted that most institutions or “think tanks” in Washington D.C. are funded by these tech oligarchs.
“This is not just a problem with Democrats in Washington D.C. There are many Republicans in D.C., who are bought off by big tech, by Google, by Amazon, by Facebook, by Apple, by Twitter,” Davis explained. “This is a bipartisan problem in D.C. and the swamp and I think conservatives across America need to put pressure on their Republican members in Congress to go on the side of everyday Americans instead of big tech oligarchs.”
“I think big tech has a hold of both parties in Washington D.C.”
Carlson applauded Davis for continuing his fight against big tech, “you are fighting a lonely battle, but a worthy one.”

BREAKING: Suspected terror attack after car explodes at U.S.-Canada checkpoint
The Rainbow bridge connecting the United States with Canada was shut down following a vehicle explosion, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and local authorities. Two passengers in the vehicle are reported dead, and the incident is being investigated as a suspected terrorist attack. A border agent was also reportedly injured in the attack.
The bridge connects at Niagara Falls, New York and was immediately closed following the explosion. What triggered the initial security stop was not immediately clear. It is also not immediately clear what caused the explosion, reported ABC News.
Surveillance video showed the vehicle stopped at an initial security checkpoint, according to sources briefed on the investigation. The vehicle was then directed to a secondary security checkpoint, and at that point the vehicle sped up and crashed into the secondary screening location, sources said.
“The FBI Buffalo Field Office is investigating a vehicle explosion at the Rainbow Bridge, a border crossing between the US and Canada in Niagara Falls,” the FBI said in a statement following the incident. “The FBI is coordinating with our local, state, and federal law enforcement partners in this investigation. As this situation is very fluid, that’s all we can say at this time.”
Investigators have found some sort of suitcase or briefcase on scene, sources told ABC News. They are treating it as a possible explosive device as a precaution and the bomb squad is handling the package.
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said, “At my direction, the New York State Police is actively working with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force to monitor all points of entry to New York. I am traveling to Buffalo to meet with law enforcement and emergency responders and will update New Yorkers when more information becomes available.”
The Buffalo Niagara International Airport said it’ll be increasing security, with car checks and additional screenings for travelers.
The White House is also monitoring the situation, a White House official said.
