TikTok permanently removes media watchdog MRCTV's account without explanation
ยท Aug 1, 2022 ยท NottheBee.com

TikTok has permanently banned Media Research Center's (MRC) account (MRCTV) from the video platform.

"TikTok is apparently easily triggered by conservative content that doesn't serve the propaganda of its communist overlords," MRC writers Joseph Vazequez and Gabriela Pariseau said in their report of the account's removal.

Between Aug. 25, 2021 and June 15, 2022, TikTok censored MRCTV a total of 45 times. Forty-two of those cases were in 2022 alone.


The platform most recently restricted MRCTV from posting any new content and didn't respond to MRC's eight attempts to appeal or request comment. Instead of answering MRC's inquiries, TikTok just decided to nuke the account.

TikTok "censored" MRCTV 13 times in February and "removed" 10 videos in March, according to Newsbusters. MRC appealed each incident and got seven of the 10 March videos restored.

The platform removed a clip of "Reality Check" hosted by MRCTV Managing editor Brittany Hughes on March 10. In the video, Hughes blasted the Biden administration for claiming it would only consider black female candidates to fill former Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer's seat.

"The heck with the rest of her resume and the fact that she may in fact actually be the best nominee on merit," Hughes said.

TikTok restored the content after MRCTV appealed. On May 16, the platform removed the video again and rejected a second appeal.

TikTok censored five more videos before the final removal of the account, including one clip in which Hughes "blasted the left for pushing transgender ideology on children."

Another censored clip featured MRCTV host Nick Kangadis "talking about straight pride and his favorite things about being a straight white male."
