Reporter Bluntly Calls BS After Josh Hawley Accuses Her Of Trying To 'Silence' Him During Interview

Josh Hawley, the Republican Senator from Missouri who encouraged insurrectionists to storm the Capitol this past January, is outraged he is being allegedly silenced by big-tech and the corporate media.

He shared his anti big-tech thoughts in a book he was given 30 minutes to promote during a one-on-one interview with The Washington Post that was live-streamed on social media. Hawley also used Twitter to boost the sales of his anti big-tech book on Amazon.

The irony was lost on the GOP Senator.

During the Washington Post live streamed interview, Hawley accused his interviewer of silencing him.

The Republican said:

"Don't try to censor, cancel and silence me here."

The Post's technology policy reporter Cat Zakrzewski pointed out the obvious in response:

"Senator, we're hosting you here."

If there's one thing Republican Senators love to do, it's appear on national TV and claim they've been "silenced."

While Hawley was complaining to the Post about being "cancelled," there were many online who were angry the Post had chosen to give him a platform in the first place.


At this point, Hawley's hypocrisy has become par-for-the-course on Twitter.

GOP Senator Hawley had a major role in the potential overthrow of American democracy less than five months ago.

Now he has a problem when he only gets 30 minutes to speak live about his new book—about how he's been silenced—to the media.


It's difficult to take Hawley seriously when he has a history of acting without any regard for facts or truth.


Hawley continued to claim he has "no regrets" when it comes to the fist-pump gesture he offered protesters who stormed the Capitol building to try and overthrow the government to stop the certification of the election of President Joe Biden.

Five people died during their attempt.
