Dr. Phil McGraw, known for his long-running daytime TV show, concluded his final season in 2023 to pursue new projects like a primetime show and a book.

He launched Merit Street Media to address important issues, starting with the situation at the southern border.

However, his attempts to raise awareness about child trafficking there were unexpectedly suppressed on social media platforms, leading to discussions about censorship and free speech.

Dr. Phil expressed concern about young people relying heavily on platforms like TikTok for news.

“A scary number, I mean, I’m talking way over 50 percent of young people get 100 percent of their news from TikTok,” Dr. Phil said.

“I put a clip up of my trip to the border … I posted it up on Facebook and Instagram and it was the part of me talking to him about trafficking these children … It was up about 50 minutes and going viral super fast … and then bang it just stopped … It got shut down,” he said.

“They just shut it down and you couldn’t see it,” he said.

“That happens to a lot of our content too … especially anytime you are talking politics, anything like that. YouTube has been suppressing us for years now,” Charlamagne Tha God said.

“See, here’s the thing. We’re guaranteed free speech under the First Amendment. What it says is that the government will pass no law. Okay. And the government hasn’t. We are doing this to each other. We are muzzling each other. What the [expletive] is up with that? We are muzzling each other. That’s what’s so disturbing to me,” he said.

“Why are we acting like this is normal?” Dr. Phil later asked.

Many conservatives have expressed the need for redirection in mass communication and the potential role of Dr. Phil’s new ventures in bringing about such change.
