On the left, a cottage industry of organizations and news divisions that exist to try to de-platform conservatives has taken shape over the last several years. The insidious industry mines conservative media looking for ways to try to get them canceled, either via direct attack or by pressuring advertisers. Their most high-profile target on the right has obviously Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, but few have been immune from their gaze, including this site at times.
