Pinterest Bans Zero Hedge By Adding To “Porn Domain Block List” Used To Target Conservatives | Zero Hedge

 

 

Documents leaked to Project Veritas by a Pinterest insider reveal that the San Francisco-based social media company has blocked links from Zero Hedge and several conservative or religious-based websites – adding them to a ‘porn domain block list’ originally intended to keep the platform free of sexually explicit material.
