Experts Say

As Silicon Valley seeks to enhance its control over the news consumers are able to view in the lead-up to 2020, experts say many publications are actively shaping their coverage to stay in “Big Tech’s” good graces. Publications that please the companies are rewarded with more exclusive scoops, better technical support and an elevated search-engine ranking, allowing them to reach more readers. “When is the last time you saw an op-ed in The Washington Post that was deeply critical of Facebook or Google? When is the last time you saw Axios or Politico quote a tech whistleblower in a favorable light?”

As a commercial business Google can control its content and censor people it deems have violated its policies without violating any First Amendment rights which only apply to government. They may be stupid to fire really good conservative engineers but unless their actions can be shown in court to be discriminatory under federal law they are free to do so. Like every company I know of everybody signs NDA agreements and other docs that state that you can't talk to the press or post negative information about the company without prior review and approval. Whistle-blowers of course violate these agreements and should be protected under law but this is usually only taken seriously when there are criminal or fraud accusations involved. Political disputes are not usually protected.

#5, not when they were granted their position's protection in the market by the government by claiming to be only a platform provider (section 230 of commo decency act) and not responsible as a publisher for content to avoid lawsuits. They are actively playing with their content and deserve the massive class-action lawsuits they are facing and many more, besides. They don't get to have it both ways. And they need to be shutdown for the way they've been behaving, since they clearly aren't just platform providers. Fakebook and twitty fall into the same boat. Maybe 5AM raids by the fibbies on their ceos and board members (will being filmed) are in order? After all, 'progressives' (aka commis/socialists/leftards) think that is just fine, so they shouldn't complain.

Whether it's Google or Facebook. My wife is a fan of fresh water tropical fish. Clubs used to trade fish on Facebook. This is important because fish bred and raised by local hobbyists are disease free and usually very good example of their species, whereas commercially sold fish can be a disaster. They've all been banned from Facebook for selling/trading tropical fish. If these A-holes pay attention closely enough to mess with fish hobbyists, how much power do they have over your hobby/interests/political views/ life? Personally I don't Facebook or any of it.

I saw a high level Google employee being questioned by Senator Ted Cruz in some hearing, and, if I heard correctly, the employee said that Google employs hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. So then, Google is a globalist company and The President is not a globalist and that is why they do not like him. And I would presume that there is not necessarily a high proportion of employees who are familiar with the Judeo-Christian culture and that is why we see some bias in this area as well.

Since the tragic shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, the media has driven the narrative that President Donald Trump is to blame for the deaths of 31 people because his racist remarks, and most outlets have featured survivors of the tragedies who are critical of the president.Breitbart News reported on National Public Radio’s (NPR) effort to find Trump haters in El Paso and instead the tax-payer funded media outlet came face to face with Tito Anchondo, who lost his brother and sister-in-law.

Joe Biden is now positioned as the defender of the Obama administration’s wretched track record in office. His sole source of electoral strength among Democrats, particularly among African-Americans, is his identification with the nation’s first black president. But that connection is also turning out to have a considerable downside, as the leftward shift of the party’s activist base leaves Obama’s 8 years looking too measured for the radicals and the Democrat contenders pandering to them. Meanwhile, the stark reality of a failed presidency haunts Biden’s appeal to swing voters.Yesterday at the Iowa State Fair, Biden was asked about the Obama administration’s China policy

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report on Thursday that calls for letting agricultural land return to the wilderness and for people to eat more plants and fewer animals. The report reiterates the globalist organization’s claim that man’s use of natural resources to improve people’s lives around the world is making “global warming” worse and will make food more scarce, more expensive, and less nutritional. “The cycle is accelerating,” NASA climate scientist Cynthia Rosenzweig, a co-author of the report, said in an Associated Press report. “The threat of climate change affecting people’s food on their dinner table is increasing.”
