After a MyrtleBeachSC report of local news in Myrtle Beach, agents had our news site deplatformed.

On January 29th, MyrtleBeachSC News broke the following article: Brittain Resorts pays $26 million in damages to 3 year old child.

Clicking on the article link, viewers can see that we reported how executives of Brittain Resorts pled the 5th amendment (to remain silent) on the grounds that their testimony might incriminate them.


Brittain Resorts doctored Department of Health and Environmental Control records about the chlorine levels in their pools. Their maintenance man made up readings on days when he was not at work, did not take samples, and could not have possibly known what the pool readings were.

A 3 year old tourist jumped into the pool and immediately suffered life altering chlorine burns.

We placed a picture of the burned 3 year old child in our article. It brought home, in context, the illegal actions of Brittain Resorts.

Brittain Resorts’ Assistant Chief Engineer pleads the 5th

After our article was published, shareholders of Brittain Resorts began calling the managing members complaining and demanding answers. Later, over 42 news outlets covered this same article.

Last week, we were contacted by the chief content executive at Newsbreak explaining that we were removed from their platform for graphic content concerning the Brittain Resorts article.

We reached out to Brad Van Horn, Chief SEO Specialist at DIIB. Diib is a search engine optimization platform that instantly syncs with Google Analytics and uses advanced algorithms and AI to give clients an easy-to-use content growth plan. He made us aware that the complaint source emanated from actors associated with Brittain Resorts and the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. He indicated this was a common problem for investigative news organizations.

MyrtleBeachSC News was reported for graphic content to Facebook News, Instagram, Google News, Newsbreak, and the video we put up on Youtube was reported as well. Our website traffic began a free fall as a result of this complaint.

Brittain Resorts represents 21 hotels on the Grand Strand and is the largest property manager member of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.

Van Horn stated, “Because of this complaint, from a powerhouse organization, your company will remain in “news jail” until the story has died down. Platforms can take up to 3 months before normal traffic returns.”

In short, a powerful, local corporation flagrantly breaks the law. A 3 year old is harmed for the rest of his life. MyrtleBeachSC News exposes the resort speaking truth to power. MyrtleBeachSC News is then censored for this very reporting.

Legacy Media losing viewership overall

We can’t report this article honestly without showing how year over year, worldwide viewers are leaving legacy media. The largest among these are CNN, Google News and MSN.

Such is not our case. We have enjoyed a consistent, loyal following for 20 years.

However, the same attempts have been made by the City of Myrtle Beach in the past as we covered news items about their issues among their own business merchants in a land grab where they forced those merchants out of business.


This issue is not one that applies to our news team exclusively. We covered what happened to James O’Keefe when he captured Pfizer’s top management on camera, stating that the Covid Vaccine was dangerous. Under pressure, Project Veritas fired him and soon closed.

Tonight, Tucker Carlson will release on X his interview of Vladimir Putin. Only X is allowing this interview uncensored. The dying legacy media, government agents, international EU government agents, and other platforms are threatening Carlson for simply doing journalism.

Because of the courage of Elon Musk, the prelude to Carlon’s news event has been seen by 100 million people.
