Threat of big tech’s “Chinese-style social credit ranking” growing in West

Rebel Staff

On Friday’s episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Allum Bokhari, senior technology correspondent at Breitbart News, joined me to discuss why people are growing more concerned about threats to their free speech from Silicon Valley big tech companies.

You may have heard about the "social credit" system in China, where each citizen's "anti-social" behaviour online and off is scored by the government.

Recently, Alex Jones showed up in the halls of Congress to yell at Google CEO Sundar Pichai as he arrived to testify before the House Judiciary Committee.

Watch as Allum explains why we’ll probably be seeing a lot more of this kind of anger from people as the scolds at big tech increasingly connect to big government.
