State-run Githeri media that are more like dictators of the internet have begun to censor their content in an attempt to manipulate the minds of their followers. Most of them have chosen to focus on content that yields maximum profit rather than “truth telling”.
However the censorship madness doesn’t stop with the media houses. Tech giants like google, Facebook and twitter have always been at the fore front of Shadow banning content that “goes against their policy.”
