Google Blocks Rep. Blackburn’s (R-Tennessee) Digital Ad

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Washington, D.C. — This week, Google blocked a digital ad in favor of Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee) claiming it violated their standards.

Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America issued the following statement in response: 

“Google’s recent decision to block Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s digital ad is one more example of google showing viewpoint bias. Concerned Women for America, made up of 500,000 individuals nationwide, is asking Google to correct this issue. We are calling this what it is – censorship and discrimination. Sadly, this is not a new, nor is it an isolated, incident.

“Twitter blocked Blackburn’s Senate campaign announcement in October 2017 because its pro-life message had the potential to offend some viewers. During CWA’s Women for Kavanaugh campaign, supporters were blocked from liking Concerned Women for America Instagram posts in support of Justice Kavanaugh. Just today, our friends at Susan B. Anthony had a 30-second ad supporting Blackburn’s pro-life stance banned by Facebook. This is a reckoning time for all of Silicon Valley.
“While it’s easy to be discouraged by this censorship and discrimination, exposure is the key to fixing the problem. Google has some important work to do, both internally with its treatment of employees and with the way it treats consumers. CWA asks that these changes come sooner, rather than later.”
