Co-founder of the Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro, testified before Congress on Wednesday morning.

Shapiro was asked to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on the topic of censorship.

During his testimony, Shapiro shared the great lengths of how organizations such as the Global Alliance for Responsible Media (GARM) censored the Daily Wire and various other news outlets.

Here are some clips:

Per The Daily Wire:

Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro is testifying to Congress on Wednesday for a House Judiciary Committee hearing on the alleged conspiracy to suppress conservative voices under the guise of “brand safety.”

A report was released by the committee early Wednesday morning outlining how member organizations of the Global Alliance for Responsible Media, or GARM, colluded to demonetize disfavored online content. The report also uncovers apparent political bias by those driving the effort, with the founder of GARM privately espousing “anti-democratic views of fundamental American freedoms,” including free speech.

Shapiro’s testimony will expose the political motivations behind this censorship, its impact on media freedom, and the failed attempts to silence outlets like The Daily Wire, Fox News, and Breitbart, as well as figures such as Elon Musk, Joe Rogan, and Donald Trump.

During his visit to The Hill, Shapiro was confronted by a Pro-Palestine protester.

Per MRCTV:

The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro shut down a pro-Palestine supporter on Capitol Hill today who tried to accuse him of supporting genocide against people in Gaza.

And Shapiro’s short and sweet response was pretty glorious.

Shapiro – who, in case you happen to live under a rock in the middle of nowhere, is the Editor in Chief of the Daily Wire, a Jew, and an ardent supporter of Israel – was on Capitol Hill Wednesday to testify before Congress about the unfair bias of advertisers against conservative media organizations thanks to Democrat lawmakers and supposed “fact-checkers” that prop up left-wing media outlets. Which is a whole separate discussion entirely, and one well worth noting.

But during his time on the Hill, Shapiro was also accosted by a woman who berated him for being complicit in Israel’s so-called genocide of Palestinians (known to the rest of us as the Jewish state’s defense against terrorists who slaughtered more than 1,200 of their people before hauling hundreds of men, women, and children into captivity).

Shapiro asked the woman if she “feel[s] good standing in solidarity with the terrorists who innocent Israeli people,” to which she responded that she stands “in solidarity with the Palestinian people who have been murdered,” referring to civilians who’ve lost their lives thanks to Hamas terrorists who use their own civilians as human shields.
