Anti-conservative bias by the social media giants which dominate our means of political communication has been a topic we’ve covered for many years.

That problem is a main focus of the Legal Insurrection Foundation, and our speaking appearances and online engagement.

I was asked by Cornell media production people to appear in a video discussing the current coronavirus crisis.
