Politico published an article reporting that President Donald Trump called the novel coronavirus a “hoax” in a speech Friday in South Carolina. “Trump rallies his base to treat coronavirus as a ‘hoax,’” reads the headline. Verdict: False. Trump referred to “politicizing” of the coronavirus by Democrats as “their new hoax.” He did not refer to the coronavirus itself as a hoax. Throughout his speech, Trump reiterated that his administration is taking the threat of the coronavirus seriously.
Twitter appears to be doing all it can to protect those participating in the impeachment inquiry from public criticism. Liberal news outlet BuzzFeed noted that the phrase “I hired Donald Trump to fire people like Yovanovitch” was trending on the morning of Nov. 15.
The founder of the liberal crowdsourced information platform Wikipedia, which received $2 million from liberal billionaire George Soros, is launching a social media site to rival Facebook and Twitter. Jimmy Wales said in a tweet that WT:Social is a response to the “fake news and low quality content” that can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
Twitter is reportedly engaging in a cover-up of a former Democratic congresswoman’s scandal that caused her to resign. The Daily Mail took a story that Red State’s Jennifer Van Laar first broke about Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) and ran it with a link in the story that led to graphic images of the politician with one of her staffers.
On Wednesday night, the Daily Caller News Foundation’s indefatigable Luke Rosiak reported that the local journalist instrumental in promoting the hate crime hoax involving an African-American girl with dreadlocks has some serious ethical issues, including how she had previously promoted the hair care company run by the girl’s family.
Around Tuesday afternoon, news reports started breaking that anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was accused in divorce filings of stealing the husband of a Washington, D.C. mother, Dr. Beth Mynett. The liberal broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC, who normally flock to such stories when they involve porn stars and President Trump, were nowhere to be seen on these accusations during their evening newscasts.
A study from Cornell University claims YouTube channels that feature prominent conservative figures are “infecting” users with alt-right beliefs. “Auditing Radicalization Pathways on YouTube,” written by five academics, concluded that “channels in the Intellectual Dark Web (IDW) and the Alt-lite would be gateways to fringe far right ideology.” The study, released August 22, linked The Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro, Dr. Jordan Peterson, comedian and host Joe Rogan, and host Dave Rubin to fringe racist figures like Richard Spencer and Jared Taylor.
Several previous Google insiders have confirmed that the Big Tech giant discriminates against right-leaning journalists, pundits and personalities — not to mention free-thinking employees within its own workforce who've been persecuted, fired and even harassed by police for their whistleblowing. Leaked documents also show that a small cadre of meddling social justice overlords at Google Central Command manually manipulate search engine results — despite the company elite's brazen denial of the practice at a recent congressional hearing.
Not surprisingly, the major broadcast network newscasts were out to lunch between Sunday morning and Monday morning about not one but three new stories detailing what the Minneapolis Star Tribune stated as “[n]ew investigative documents” that provide “fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.”
While YouTube has been panicking over one offended LGBT reporter, the platform’s overreaction has both sides outraged. YouTube announced a crackdown on Wednesday June 5 on videos promoting or glorifying racism and discrimination. However, in what appears to be the haphazard actions of a hastily deployed algorithm, even videos critiquing “hate speech” and conspiracy theories have been taken down or demonetized.
On Tuesday night, Politico Magazine senior writer Michael Grunwald seemed to have inadvertently auditioned for a role on former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign by offering a hilarious defense in light of news first reported by our friend Peter Hasson at the Daily Caller News Foundation that Biden’s environmental proposal “used nearly identical language from other sources in at least five different passages.”
Social media companies appear to be tossing away their copies of SPLC’s bogus “hate map.” It took a while, but Facebook finally responded to the April 3 call from MRC president Brent Bozell and numerous other conservative leaders for the platform to cut ties with the Southern Poverty Law Center.
