At the Senate Judiciary hearing on April 10, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) grilled Facebook and Twitter on their censorship policies, especially of conservative and pro-life content during the Senate Judiciary hearing on April 10. He announced that in previous hearings, Facebook refused to answer questions that CEO Mark Zuckerberg had promised would be answered in hearings in April of 2018. As he grilled the two representatives for Facebook and Twitter, Neil Potts and Carlos Monje, it seemed that both the witnesses found it difficult to directly answer the Chairman
New York Magazine published an article on Tuesday that makes one think the author, Luke O'Neil, watched "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" perhaps a few times too many. The aura of that movie (both original and remake) seems to have infected his horror tale story, "What I’ve Learned From Collecting Stories of People Whose Loved Ones Were Transformed by Fox News" to the extent that it comes off as a parody of itself that could be called "Invasion of the Fox News Body Snatchers."
The Free Speech Alliance (FSA), a coalition of more than 40 conservative organizations, released the following statement Wednesday in response to reports that Google “blacklists” conservative news and opinion websites – preventing those websites from appearing in search results. As reported by the Daily Caller, Google’s Trust and Safety team manually manipulated various search features to exclude a number of conservative websites including the American Spectator, Gateway Pundit, and Conservative Tribune.
Twitter has tried again to silence voices of the pro-life movement. The page for the film Unplanned was suspended on Twitter on March 30 by mistake, if Twitter is to be believed.
In a not-so-subtle smear attempt, The Economist published a interview with conservative commentator Ben Shapiro and labeled him as a member of the “alt-right.” Shapiro is a mainstream conservative who has taken great pains to distance himself from right-wing fringe groups -- a devout Jew who often preaches about the dangers of tribalism and its destruction of reasonable discourse. After swift backlash the Economist amended the headline. Still, the incident demonstrates the left’s aggressive push to demonize conservative speakers and connect them through implication to unreasonable and even violent and fringe groups.
Tech companies rarely reach out to work with conservative organizations. When they do, news outlets savage both sides of the agreement. Google recently partnered with the Heritage Foundation for its AI council on ethics. Heritage Foundation President Kay Cole James is a member of the council, along with several other experts. James was brought on as a policy expert, since she had worked under both President George H. W. Bush and President George W. Bush. Business Insider immediately slammed James as being “controversial” for her alleged “anti-trans, anti-immigrant views.”
How can I impeach thee? Let me count the ways....Still reeling from the pain of the Mueller report's failure to deliver any additional indictments, Joy Reid this morning fantasized a list of possibly impeachable offenses. The most hilarious, reflecting Reid's unfamiliarity with the Bill of Rights, was her claim that Trump's "attacking the media" could be grounds for impeachment. Reid said that while the criticism isn't a crime, "it's a violation of the First Amendment in a lot of ways."
In a highly anticipated ceremony on Thursday, President Trump signed an executive order directing the government to take action in protecting free speech on college campuses. It wasn’t something that enthused the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and, NBC) so they omitted it from their evening broadcasts. Instead, they all cheered on New Zealand for their swift movement in banning so-called “assault weapons”. So, that’s two rights the liberal media seemingly don’t like.
“We’ve looked at the top social media companies. Twitter always ends up being the worst of the bunch,” MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor said on Trish Regan Primetime on Fox Business on March 19.
Following the President's joint press conference Tuesday afternoon with his Brazilian counterpart, CNN chief White House correspondent and carnival barker Jim Acosta offered a lengthy diatribe and meltdown to the delight of his colleagues. In four-and-a-half minutes, Acosta attacked the Daily Caller for a “softball” question to the President, bashed Trump for spreading a “virus” around the world that the media has a liberal bias, and even suggested conservatives have a bigger media and social media influence than liberals.
The father of the World Wide Web is right: It’s time to take back “complete control of your data.” Tim Berners-Lee, who conceived the first internet browser 30 years ago this week, warned of its increasing threats to “privacy, security and fundamental rights.” To mark the anniversary, he argued that demanding transparency is key to stopping the web's “downward plunge to a dysfunctional future.”
Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson once again found himself in the sights of the left’s “outrage machine,” as he called it, for “naughty” comments he made over 10 years ago while speaking with shock jock, Bubba the Love Sponge. In response, he kicked off Monday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight with an over six-minute-long monologue unloading on the left and the liberal media for trying to destroy lives and careers in their political “war”.
