Clay: American Big Tech Is No Different Than China

Facebook? Or communist China? You tell us the difference. Because it's hard to tell if there is one anymore -- especially after Facebook refused to allow Donald Trump's daughter-in-law to post an interview with the former president.

That's right. Lara Trump wanted to post something to Facebook. The social media giant said no. And its lone reason was the fact that the post involved Donald Trump.

"This is outlandish," said OutKick founder Clay Travis. "And it's crazy to me how many members of the blue-checkmark brigade are cheering blatant censorship. What's happened in America -- and I don't think most people have recognized this, or it certainly hasn't been talked about in a big way -- is that China has the Great Wall of China for the internet, right? They filter what people in China are able to see, the government does, in an effort to promote nationalism and respect for their country."

In other words, China does not have a "free and open" internet, Clay adds. And guess what? Neither does America, thanks to Big Tech.
