EXCLUSIVE – TUSK, a censorship-free web browser for conservatives with an emphasis on free speech, launched Tuesday, allowing users to “browse right” the Internet.
TUSK founder and CEO of Virtual World Computing Jeff Bermant believes that “the most popular browsers and search engines are inherently lefty and biased” and he wanted to create a place for conservatives to see what like-minded people are saying.
“TUSK was developed with the idea of free speech because if you go to other browsers and go to their news feeds, you’ll see it’s center left or left and you don’t get the full story,” Bermant told Fox News digitally.

Bermant, who was inspired by the work of high-profile conservatives such as Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin, believes right-wing news organizations were not easy to find through popular search engines that millions of Americans rely on. TUSK is a private browser intended to bring freedom of speech and provide conservative information that Bermant created after Levin called on conservatives to fight back against what he calls American Marxists.
“One of the things I have a knack for is knowing how to build browsers… We built a news feed that is basically a conservative news feed and we built what you would call the links or the tiles. from filling them with some brands you might want to buy, we populated them with conservative sites,” Bermant said. “You know, technology, or the web, is basically controlled by liberals.”
Because liberals control technology, Bermant believes that many conservative news organizations are buried and hard to find with traditional search engines like Google. “There was no easy place to go,” he said.

Bermant thinks TUSK can help change the web-browsing experience for conservatives.
“It’s really necessary because otherwise you don’t really realize you’re being censored,” he said. “You don’t see the news you want.”
Bermant said many conservative websites are placed on the third or fourth page of results when a user searches for something on traditional search engines, even if the article is exactly what they were looking for.
“As the scientists know who built the web, you don’t go to that page,” he said.
Unlike other search engines, TUSK does not monitor users, collect data to sell for profit or create profiles.
“We want to respect your privacy,” Bermant said, noting that a portion of the proceeds from sponsored ads will go to veteran groups.
While TUSK targets conservatives and provides easy access to right-wing information, users can also find liberal news organizations in the search engine if they wish by simply pressing a few buttons.

“We’re all about freedom of speech,” Bermant said. “We want you to see what the other side is saying… we built this for free speech because we felt like Americans are basically being censored in their browsers, in their search engines.”
