In the aftermath of the Capitol Hill riots, President Donald Trump has seemingly been censored from social media indefinitely.
Website after website — from Twitter to Facebook to Instagram — the President is facing a blackout.

The emerging story in politics has quickly shifted from the violent mob at the U.S. Captiol to Big Tech censorship.
But it’s not just apps. Insiders say conservative talk radio is facing censorship as well.
According to The Washington Post, Cumulus Media — which features some of America’s most beloved conservative radio hosts — are being commanded by company bosses to tone down rhetoric surrounding the election and voter fraud.
In other words, Cumulus Media personalities must stop questioning the results of the 2020 election… or else they face being fired.
“If you transgress this policy,” a memo read, “you can expect to separate from the company immediately.”

The company’s vice president said that the move was in order to “induce national calm.”
We “will not tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved and there are no alternate acceptable ‘paths.’”
So who is this affecting?
Well, Rush Limbaugh — whose radio show had been syndicated by Cumulus Media in the past — is safe.
But as for Mark Levin, Dan Bongino, and Ben Shapiro, these are a handful of conservative radio stars who are facing pressure to change their approach.
Many members of the media are shifting their tone in the wake of the deadly mob that left five people dead. Experts in the publishing field say the bosses of firebrand radio programs and other political shows are wary of stoking more tension and division in America.

But voices like Levin and Bongino haven’t appeared to tone down their messages.
“I’m not stirring up a damn thing,” Levin said on his radio show shortly after the Capitol storming. “Everything I say is based on principle and mission. Everything is based on liberty, family, faith, the Constitution. … My enemies and my critics can’t say the same.”
Fox News regular Dan Bongino hasn’t necessarily grown shy about his message either.
