CANCEL CULTURE ON DISPLAY: LinkedIn bans reporter Ben Sellers for mentioning Durham Report
05/19/2023 // Ethan Huff // Views

The long-awaited Durham Report was released this week, and Big Tech is already going after those brave enough to talk about it online.

Ben Sellers of Headline USA was axed from LinkedIn, a purported career-building social media platform owned by Microsoft, for daring to even just mention the Durham Report.

In Sellers' view, LinkedIn is worse than even Facebook and Twitter, calling it "one of the most egregious social media offenders in terms of practicing anti-conservative bias and censorship."

One day after the Durham Report was released, Sellers posted a response to Meredith Kopit Levien, the president and chief executive officer (CEO) of The New York Times, asking whether or not the fake news giant is planning to return the Pulitzer Prize it received for reporting on and pushing the Russia Collusion hoax.

In light of special counsel John Durham's final confirmation that the Russia Collusion hoax was just that, a complete fabrication spearheaded by two-time failed presidential wannabe Hillary Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), it would only make sense for the Times to return the Pulitzer it was given.

Not long after Sellers pressed Levien about this, he received a notice from LinkedIn that his comment "doesn't comply with our policies."

"Your comment goes against our policy on bullying and harassment," the notice explained. "It has been removed and only you can access it."

(Related: Early on, DNI Ratcliffe supposed that Joe Biden might not even be installed into the White House at all, but it turns out the investigation and report took a while longer to complete.)


The New York Times has become an embarrassing joke of a fake newspaper under Levien's leadership

Levien's initial post, the one to which Sellers was responding, referenced Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger, who claimed that the fake newspaper's mission demands "a deep analysis and frequent skepticism of the public narrative."

Nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to the Russia Collusion hoax that the Times pushed. And Sellers wanted to know how Levien could, in good conscience, claim that such a thing is still true at the fake newspaper following its handling of the Russia Collusion hoax.

Rather than respond like a mature adult, Levien apparently tattle-taled to LinkedIn about how she was being "harassed" by Sellers, and the rest is now history: He has been punished like a third grader who stayed out at recess too long, this being the M.O. form of retaliation by Big Tech against those who dare to question establishment lies and hypocrisy.

Sellers wrote sarcastically that the "lovely sentiment" of A.G. Sulzberger's statements about the Times are apparently no longer true, and are clearly out of step with the fake newspaper's actual treatment of the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory it helped spread.

"I later issued a post of my own calling on fellow journalists to urge the Times to return its ill-gotten Pulitzer award, and tagging Levien in my post," Sellers explained.

"Not long thereafter, around 11 a.m. Tuesday, a notice arrived from LinkedIn's so-called Trust and Safety Team that I had violated its policies on 'bullying and harassment.'"

Sellers was given the option to petition his strike with LinkedIn after being accused of "bullying and harassment," which "includes targeted personal attacks, intimidation, shaming, disparagement, and abusive language directed at other members."

"You may not engage in trolling or other repetitive negative content that disrupts other members or conversations on the platform," the notice read.

When Sellers tried to appeal this through the link given by LinkedIn, he was blocked out of his account entirely, and met with a notice that he had been "restricted." To date, he has received no valid explanation for this abusive treatment by LinkedIn.
