Editor's Note: There are several major updates regarding the originally published article. Due to Kaminsky's research with the 'Washington Examiner' and public outrage to blacklists against conservatives, Microsoft's ad agency, Xandr, has removed conservative sites from their blacklist and discontinued their relationship with the Global Disinformation Index (GDI). Read the original story below. has been financially blacklisted by Microsoft-owned ad agency, Xandr, after being listed on a leftist non-profit's "exclusion list" for propagating "disinformation." Glenn interviewed the reporter breaking the story.

Washington Examiner reporter Gabe Kaminsky broke a series of articles detailing the coordinated effort between ad agencies and leftist non-profits to financially suffocate conservative sites—including

Kaminsky found that major ad companies are seeking guidance from self-described "non-partisan" media groups to detect websites carrying "disinformation" with the aim of restricting ads on those sites, depriving conservative media outlets of vital ad revenue. Most notably, Xandr, a massive digital ad agency purchased by Microsoft from AT&T for $1 billion in 2021, announced in 2022 that they would be adopting the Global Disinformation Index's "exclusion list" to punish content that is "morally reprehensible or patently offensive," lacking "redeeming social value," or "could include false or misleading information," according to emails exposed by Kaminsky.

Major ad agencies are depriving conservative media outlets of vital ad revenue.

The "Global Disinformation Index" (GDI) is a leftist non-profit that is targeting conservative media while purporting to be "non-partisan." GDI's recently-published "Disinformation Risk Assessment" listing their self-proclaimed "10 highest and lowest-risk news outlets" demonstrates their overt-leftist bias.

Among their "10 riskiest online news outlets" list included TheBlaze, Daily Wire, New York Post, and other conservative news outlets, accusing the sites of "bias" and "prevalence of sensational language." It is little surprise that their list of the "10 lowest-risk news outlets" included left-leaning sources like the Washington Post, New York Times, NPR, Buzzfeed News, Huffington Post, and others. The only centrist news source listed on their "10 lowest-risk news outlets" was the Wall Street Journal.

GDI submitted a report to the UN stating its aim is "to defund disinformation" and break "the incentive to create it for the purpose of garnering advertising revenues." GDI compiled a larger "exclusion list" to further this end. This "exclusion list" contains 2,000 domain names, most of which are conservative-leaning, and is distributed to ad companies for the sake of restricting their ad space on those sites. is one of the 2,000 domains listed.

The aforementioned Microsoft-owned Xandr is one of the major ad companies using this list to restrict revenue to conservative media sources. An executive at an ad agency who contracts with conservative media outlets anonymously disclosed to the Washington Examiner a list of 37 conservative media outlets that Xander is financially punishing and censoring based on the fact that they are listed on GDI's "exclusion list." was included in this list alongside other conservative spokespersons' domains, including,,,, and others. is being financially blacklisted and punished by Microsoft-owned ad company, Xandr. is listed among the conserative domains that are being financially punished by Microsoft-owned ad agency, Xandr.Courtesy of the 'Washington Examiner'

Even more troubling is the federal government's involvement in this collusion. Kaminsky found that his GDI has received "$330,000 from two State Department-backed entities linked to the highest levels of government." Our federal government is apparently bankrolling an organization aimed at defunding conservative platforms. This is an explicit violation of the First Amendment.

Dan Schneider, vice president for the Media Research Center's Free Speech Alliance group, compared this coordinated effort to redlining, which financially restricted African Americans' ability to buy homes, or blacklists in Hollywood that prevent conservatives from getting contracts based solely on their beliefs. As Schneider told the Washington Examiner, "What we see going on is not new."

The free press and freedom of speech are the bedrock of a free society's ability to keep the government accountable. That is why it is enshrined in the First Amendment. As Glenn said after the bombshell Twitter Files story dropped, "Without a free and independent press, you can’t have a free and independent civilization." When we don't have a free press, then the press is doing the bidding of the government, which, as Glenn said, "is what they had in Soviet Russia or what they have in China and North Korea today."

We have already seen through the Twitter Files that big tech is doing the bidding of the deep state, censoring content that threatens their leftist narrative. Now the Washington Examiner's groundbreaking story shows that "big advertising" is also in bed with leftist organizations. In both cases, the federal government is both explicitly and financially involved in censoring conservative content for its own benefit.

POLL: What did YOU think about the 2nd GOP presidential debate?

Wednesday was a big night for the Republican presidential candidates during the second GOP debate... OR WAS IT?

Glenn wasn't impressed with the debate. In fact, he went as far as to say it was the worst Presidential debate BY FAR he had ever seen for THIS reason: NO ONE discussed the major issues that Americans are actually facing.

Inflation has doubled Americans' grocery bills. Gas is nearing a historic record of $100/barrel. We have DOUBLED our national deficit. Bidenomics and the globalists' green agenda pose an existential threat to core American industries while we continue to fund the Ukrainian people's pensions and small businesses. It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011
