If you thought Big Tech wasn’t confusing enough, Apple has released gender-neutral emojis for those confused about their biology. The latest iOS 13.2 update issued in late October gave users 398 new emojis ranging from more animals and new foods to more diverse inclusion. “Many of the added emoji include new foods, shapes, and additional variations on emoji depicting people and professions, including a gender-neutral option for a painter, welder, and scientist,” USA Today wrote in its coverage.
The media are opposed to anything that remotely resembles a neutral approach. So when Facebook decided to leave political ads from politicians untouched, the liberal news media declared war. Head of Facebook News Campbell Brown wrote in an Oct. 30 Facebook post that she was “astonished at the reaction by other journalists to Facebook's decision not to police speech from political candidates.”
If nothing else, the sordid story of Jeffrey Epstein has done some good by exposing possible corruption in academia, science, and Big Tech. Business Insider wrote that LinkedIn founder and Microsoft board member Reid Hoffman is the latest in a long list of “powerful figures attracting scrutiny for their connections to now-deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.”
Some activists on the left, like to claim it’s easier to buy a gun in America than it is to buy cold medicine. One journalist found how wrong that was and actually published her investigation, despite it not fitting into the media's narrative. Business Insider’s Hayley Peterson wanted to know how difficult it would be for her to buy a gun at a Walmart in Virginia, after the superstore chain faced pressure from Democrats to stop selling firearms.
Even though some high-profile experts claim the U.S. is not headed for a recession right now, the liberal news media continued to promote economic pessimism during the summer of 2019.
Despite 3.7 percent (near record-low) unemployment, wage gains, confident consumers and growing economy, liberal journalists obsessed over recession every single day of June and July.
No company is safe from the rabid haters of President Donald Trump. Home Depot was the latest company to be reviled on Twitter and threatened with a hashtag boycott after billionaire co-founder Bernie Marcus expressed support for Trump. Yet, Marcus retired from the company more than 15 years ago, according to MarketWatch.
Over the past year, the cries of fake news and bias have come from both sides of the political aisle. News organizations that have for years positioned themselves as the neutral place to get news. However, they’ve started to show their cards. Nowhere is this clearer than in conversations surrounding abortion in the United States.
The media don’t just make the news, they frame it. Journalists did it this week, pushing business CEOs to quit President Donald Trump’s American Manufacturing Council. After one CEO resigned in response to Trump’s comments on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, the media urged others to follow. The fallout resulted in Trump shutting down the group entirely.
Merck CEO Ken Frazier decided to leave the council after Trump’s comments on violence between white supremacists and counter protesters which included Antifa. Antifa are “anti-fascists” who show up to protest hateful speech and try to shut it down and have demonstrated willingness to use violence to accomplish those goals, according to CNN.
On Monday, just three days after President Donald Trump signed an executive order preventing people in seven countries -- Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen -- from entering America for 90 days, executives from three media-based companies moved to protect any employees affected by the situation.
Hundreds of British actors and celebrities are clamoring for Great Britain to remain part of the European Union when the nation votes this week. That’s in direct opposition to the view of many conservatives on both sides of the pond. Either result could have major economic consequences. UK citizens will vote June 23 on the contentious “Brexit” referendum. Putting their high-profiles to use, 282 people involved in Britain’s creative industries signed a letter in May arguing many of their “projects” would not have been possible without “vital EU funding” or “collaborating across borders,” according to a website urging people vote “REMAIN.”
Anthony Weiner (aka Carlos Danger aka Mr. Abedin) has a well deserved reputation for, uh, flashing. However, his most significant flash of all came in the form of a Business Insider op-ed in which the husband of Hillary Clinton's closest personal aide, Huma Abedin, flashed their campaign plan to deligitimize the candidacy of Bernie Sanders for the Democrat presidential nomination and, if necessary, his delegates at the convention.
Your humble correspondent has suspected for weeks that the Hillary campaign would ultimately try to toss out many if not most of the Sanders delegates at the Democrat convention next year due to the fact that Sanders is a Socialist and is not registered as a Democrat. Weiner pretty much confirms this suspicion in his latest flash from deep within the recesses of the Hillary campaign:
