1792 Exchange releases its first ‘Spotlight Report: Corporate Bias Ratings’; 1,000+ companies rated on likelihood of canceling customers for religious, political views; exposes high risk companies.

January 24, 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, 1792 Exchange announces the launch of its new “Spotlight Report: Corporate Bias Ratings,” an assessment tool which rates corporations on the likelihood that they cancel or deny services to individuals, small businesses and nonprofits for ideological reasons. This resource will help organizations understand their vulnerability and likelihood of being denied service by their vendors, including banking, IT, and insurance, due to their religious or political beliefs. The Spotlight Report was curated by 1792 Exchange and consists of a proprietary analysis of over 1,000 companies throughout the U.S. in various industries important to the continued operations of their customers.

“This report is the result of countless hours investigating “woke” corporate bias against religious expression, freedom of speech, and free enterprise,” said 1792 Exchange President, Paul Fitzpatrick. “1792 Exchange believes the “free” in “free market” is essential. We want Americans to understand where they are truly free to conduct business, without the risk of being canceled or denied service for their genuinely held religious and ideological beliefs. This first Spotlight Report on corporate bias is a guide to help Americans understand the risks present with certain corporations, and give them a voice when they encounter this type of discrimination. And let me be clear: the objective is for the “high risk” companies, especially public ones, to take notice, change their behavior, and serve all customers – regardless of ideology. That goal seems obvious, but sadly, many corporations have weaponized their brands and assets to achieve political and ideological objectives. They must reject stakeholder capitalism and focus on shareholders while treating all customers, employees, vendors and communities with respect.”

The Spotlight Report on Corporate Bias Ratings rates companies as “high risk,” “medium risk,” or “lower risk,” based upon their propensity to cancel individuals and organizations, deny service, or force ideological compromise based on political and religious views. This is the largest database of its type. 1792 Exchange plans to add new company reports and regularly update existing ones to give Americans the information they need to assess the companies they do business with.

Companies ranked “high risk” should be on alert, while companies that are marked “lower risk” should be commended for focusing on their primary role – providing quality products and services and increasing value for shareholders.

Examples of “high risk” companies include:

  • Bank of America
  • Etsy
  • Salesforce
  • JPMorgan Chase
  • PayPal
  • YouTube
  • Amazon
  • GoDaddy
  • GoFundMe
  • Mailchimp

The corporate ratings incorporate some high-profile examples of cancellation, such as former Ambassador for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback getting de-banked by JPMorgan Chase, as well as many other examples that never made the front page but were equally harmful. Based upon the research already conducted, 1792 Exchange expects that many more individuals and organizations have been canceled or denied access to corporate services and have not yet shared their stories and experiences publicly. Consequently, 1792 Exchange encourages those who have faced cancellation or denial of service due to ideological discrimination, or witnessed others enduring this bias, to publicly share their stories on social media, using the hashtag #canceledtoo. Alternatively, if such individuals still fear retribution, they can register their experience privately, here.
