The Federalist, a right-leaning news website, was forced to remove its entire comment section after Google threatened to ban the platform from using its ad services. Google was allegedly pushed to ban advertisements for both The Federalist and liberatian news website ZeroHedge.

NBC News wrote a story on June 16 saying Google would demonetize both websites, after the NBC News “Verification Unit” informed Google about a British nonprofit, the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), tied to the British Labour Party, put the websites, and Breitbart on its “blacklist” for allegedly benign “racist Fake News.”
