LinkedIn censors MRAK story about Hope Center’s lawsuit against Anchorage

The social media platform LinkedIn has censored a Must Read Alaska story about the Downtown Hope Center’s lawsuit against the Municipality of Anchorage. The lawsuit, filed Wednesday, seeks to protect abused women in the shelter from having to sleep on the floor alongside biological males, and the report about the lawsuit was a factual telling of the situation.

The pattern of Big Tech deleting stories that its censors is occurring across many of the now-traditional platforms — LinkedIn, Facebook, and even Twitter. Earlier this year, YouTube took down content from the Must Read Alaska page on that site. The removed content was footage of public testimony at the Anchorage Assembly meeting when people testified on the record in the Assembly Chambers about the unwelcome Covid-19 policies’ effects on their lives.

News sites such as Must Read Alaska have branched out; our stories also are posted on and other sites that value free speech.

LinkedIn said the story about the lawsuit goes against its community standards, which include: Be Safe, Be Trustworthy, Be Professional.

This is the first known case of MRAK content being actually censored.

Earlier this week, Facebook warned users about extremist content, in reference to Anchorage Mayor Dave Bronson’s Event post for the inaugural block party on the Delaney Park Strip.

Among the rules posted by LinkedIn for its content are:

Do not share false or misleading content: Do not share content in a way that you know is, or think may be, misleading or inaccurate, including misinformation or disinformation. Do not share content to interfere with or improperly influence an election or another civic process. We may prevent you from posting content from sites that are known to produce or contain misinformation. Do not share content that directly contradicts guidance from leading global health organizations and public health authorities. Do not post content that denies a well-documented historical event such as the Holocaust or slavery. Do not share false content or information, including news stories, that present untrue facts or events as though they are true or likely true. Do not post “deepfake” images or videos of others or otherwise post content that has been manipulated to deceive. Do not share content or endorse someone or something in exchange for personal benefit (including personal or family relationships, monetary payment, free products or services, or other value), unless you have included a clear and conspicuous notice of the personal benefit you receive and have otherwise complied with our Advertising Policies.”

  1. I knew when Twitter was allowed to censor a & block a U.S. president that we would be heading down a dark road of technocratic authoritarianism is America.

  2. perhaps another badge of honor for MRAK as well as another reminder to go to the Donate button today….

  3. I feel the need to also inform those who may have noticed a new format on the Rumble platform. Search the terms of service. Scroll WAY DIWN
    It has listed under prohibited matterial section 8. part c.

    Promotes or supports entities and/or persons designated by either the Canadian or United States government as terrorists or terrorist organizations.

    Just so y’all KNOW what is happening.

  4. The biden admin. has just released the definition of domestic terrorist.
    It includes …. others as the gov. deems to be a threat.
    This would not be accepted by the democrats if it were Republicans deciding who falls into this category.

  5. Another Social media platform that I have deleted because of this Socialist censorship. They have to understand that that we will not support them or tolerate their censorship!

  6. If FB et al. are taken seriously, we have to ask ourselves why we take them seriously. Most seem to be about money, NewThink, and NewSpeak. Even some in academe are beginning to get it.

  7. Where are all the lawsuits for canceling free speech? You have the 1st amendment fully in your corner.

  8. This is why I dumped all social media years ago. When I was looking for work, LinkedIn was pimping diversity and social justice.

  9. When I joined MRAK FB page, I was told via a pop up that they “breached community standards” and did I really wish to join, so I had to click yes…. Now I wear the “Star” in their hidden rankings …..

  10. Our US Constitution allows its freemen to influence election processes. It is absolutely our responsibility. How sophomoric of LinkIn not to know and champion these tenets of the country they are privileged to do business in.

  11. I am dumping “Linked” also. I have already sent them an email as to why and deleted the APP. I am getting tired of social media and companies censoring conservative views. I just sent ALaska Airlines an email also telling them I am considering severing our family ties with them after 40 years of using them almost exclusively as our go to AK Airline. I asked for a public apology and discipline for the reasonable employees if it was in error or an acknowledgment that it was their company policy. It maybe the only power we have to break them of this continuing attack on our views. I am also contacting the US Olympic Committee about disrespectful athletes representing our Nation. The can exercise their First Amendment personal opinions when ever they are not representing our Country! They are a symbol representing all of Americans so they do not have a right to disrespect all of us. We support them financially and they accept our sponsorship to represent us not their personal dissent. That goes for all athletes that use the public forum that taxpayers and attendees are paying their salaries and giving them a National platform to perform.
