'Don't sign these contracts': Crowder exposes Big Conservative Media's complicity in Big Tech censorship
If you've been with us for a while, you're well aware that Louder with Crowder has had more than a few run-ins with Big Tech censorship. From the Vox Adpocalypse to the 2022 midterms, we've had quite a few uphill battles. But still, we've persisted in our desire to deliver high-quality, hilarious content to you, the viewer. The show has never bent the knee to the powers-that-be.

Today, Crowder exposed other companies in Conservative media who don't exactly have the same priorities - namely, you. They market themselves as freedom-loving, censorship-hating Conservatives, while secretly shilling for Big Tech behind the scenes.
Crowder read portions of a contract he was offered after the show's departure from The Blaze in December of last year. The name of the company has been redacted, as Crowder made it clear this is not about burning down Conservative allies, but encouraging them to do better and building up the Conservative movement.
A portion of the contract explained penalties for demonetization on Big Tech platforms: "If any of the major platforms (e.g. YouTube, Facebook, Apple Podcasts, Spotify) issues a content strike (other than a "companywide" content strike) such that Crowder content cannot be monetized on such platform, and the company is not able to resolve the issue within 90 days, then the fee will be reduced by 25% from that point forward."
You can watch the entire video below to learn what else was lurking in these contracts. But first, please go to StopBigCon.com and enter your email. This isn't just for Louder with Crowder. This is a petition to show Big Con how many of you out there want business practices like this to stop. If you want your Conservative "allies" to stop shilling for Big Tech and muzzling their creators, please, go sign your name.
Stay tuned for more as the show navigates its newfound independence. And hold onto your butts! We've got a bumpy ride ahead.
