Conservative News Sites Demonetized?
From The Daily Caller…Activists linked to a left-wing disinformation network are pressuring advertisers to cut ties with conservative news sites.
Check My Ads, a group started by Sleeping Giants co-founder and activist Nandini Jammi and advertising consultant Claire Atkin, bills itself as “Adtech’s first watchdog” and claims to “cut disinformation off at the source.” The organization attempts to curb the spread of what it deems misleading or hateful content by pressuring advertisers and ad exchanges to sever business relationships with certain news and commentary sites.
The targets, almost invariably, are conservative publications such as Human Events and The Post Millennial, and right-wing media figures such as Dan Bongino and Charlie Kirk…
Both Jammi and Atkin serve on the advisory committee of Good Information Inc., an investment vehicle backed by LinkedIn founder and left-wing philanthropist Reid Hoffman and financier George Soros, and led by Democratic strategist Tara McGowan. The venture bills itself as a “civic incubator” providing funding to media projects that counter “disinformation.”
Hoffman has himself invested in several projects found to be spreading false or misleading information. During the run-up to the 2018 midterm elections American Engagement Technologies (AET), a group funded by Hoffman and staffed by Democratic operatives, ran misleading ad campaigns intended to suppress Republican voter turnout by imitating disgruntled conservatives.
The billionaire funded tech firm New Knowledge, which created thousands of fake Twitter accounts designed to appear as Russian bots during the 2017 Alabama Senate race between Roy Moore and Doug Jones in order to make it appear as if Russia was supporting Moore’s candidacy; Hoffman later apologized for his involvement with the group. New Knowledge CEO Jonathan Morgan acknowledged the firm engaged in disinformation tactics but claimed the efforts were part of a research project…
It’s unclear whether Check My Ads is directly funded by either Hoffman or Soros; the group did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s questions as to the source of its funding.
