Breitbart News Banned Over Hate Speech From Advertising With AppNexus
Breitbart News, who has helped Donald Trump get elected, are Alt-Right Members from the Alt-Right Movement, who consider other non-right race and other cultural groups (black people, immigrants, Catholics and Jews) as their enemies. They have a heavy belief in “white is only right” type thinking.
According to BBC News, AppNexus said it would no longer allow Breitbart to sell ad space via its platform, after determining that the site had broken its code on hate speech and incitement to violence.
Breitbart’s response “We have always and continue to condemn racism and bigotry in any form”.
But Breitbart has posted some very disturbing articles that will scare the heck out of anyone, including their Sister Blogsite Alternative Right.
After a number of Breitbart’s articles have gotten flagged because of the hideous language, AppNexus’s spokesman Joshua Zeitz stated. “We use a number of third-party standards to determine what is and isn’t hate speech, and if we detect a pattern of speech that could incite violence or discrimination against a minority group, we determine that to be non-compliant and we simply won’t serve ads against it. I’m not going to put the examples out there because I’m not going to engage in a tit-for-tat on what is compliant.”
But what really concerns me is Breitbart has been writing these “hate-type” articles for almost a decade. What has changed now? Did Trump’s win certainly alert them? Nevertheless, Donald Trump has still appointed Steve Bannon, a Breitbart Affiliate as his Chief White House Strategist and Senior Counselor.
