Conservative media platform PragerU is suing Google this week over allegations of its educational videos being censored. The company has had 40 of its videos censored by the information and tech giant since October of last year, and believes it’s time to fight the corporation on its extreme violation of free speech laws.
In a search in the browser Google Chrome, 6 of the top 20 conservative sites had “reviewed claims” showcased in the summary. By contrast, none of the top 20 liberal sites had “reviewed claims.” Instead, three of them -- The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The New Yorker -- had “awards” displayed where “reviewed claims” would have been.
Media liberals like James Warren at Poynter.org aren't happy with how social-media giants may have enabled the election of Donald Trump. He cited an article by Bloomberg News headlined "Facebook and Google Helped Anti-Refugee Campaign in Swing States." The group Secure America Now ran ads "touting a pair of controversial faux-tourism videos, showing France and Germany overrun by Sharia law."
Reporters Benjamin Elgin and Vernon Silver lamented: “Unlike Russian efforts to secretly influence the 2016 election via social media, this American-led campaign was aided by direct collaboration with employees of Facebook and Google.”
Dear liberals: if Donald Trump uses a word you aren’t familiar with, that doesn’t mean it’s a fake word. After the President mentioned the alt-left yesterday in a press conference, the New York Times ran a story that claimed, “Researchers who study extremist groups in the United States say there is no such thing as the “alt-left.”
Thursday on Good Morning America, ABC continued their skewed reporting on the leaked memo from a former Google engineer that criticized his company’s approach to diversity in the workplace. But today’s report from ABC was the most biased yet. Correspondent Rebecca Jarvis cherry-picked the most unflattering generalizations about women from James Damore’s ten page memo, completely ignoring these were only a tiny portion of the memo, which had much more positive things to say about women brought to the workplace. In addition, the former Google engineer’s numerous criticisms of the company’s lack of tolerance for political viewpoints that weren’t from the far-left, was completely ignored in ABC’s report.
If you Google public relations disaster, you’ll find Google. Over the weekend a now-fired Google employee wrote an internal memo asserting the company’s liberal bias made it inhospitable to conservative ideas. Political donations made by board members of Alphabet -- Google’s parent company -- shows that bias goes straight to the top.
Come Monday, technology company Google was still reeling after an internal and controversial memo circulated by an employee went viral. The 10-page memo, which questioned the company’s diversity efforts, was the work of one person, but for CBS it meant a setback for all. “Tech-giant Google’s efforts to improve its image as a company that promotes diversity have been dealt a major setback, in the form of a memo from a male employee,” announced Anchor Anthony Mason during CBS Evening News.
Our recurring joke - that is itself a ceaselessly recurring joke - is when we mention the “Media-Left,” we always follow it with “please pardon the redundancy.” The Media-Left merger is now seamless. I could hand you a New York Times article and a Daily Kos article - and you would be hard pressed to determine which is which (aside from the latter’s propensity for profanity).
As Rush Limbaugh repeatedly points out - the Media are the horse, the Left merely the cart the Media drags along behind. And the Democrat Party is the inert, inept product in the cart - dragged along by both.
During Sean Hannity's Opening Monologue for his weeknight program on Tuesday, April 25, the Fox News Channel host hammered the people who participate in what he dubbed “Media Fascism,” an attempt to “silence every conservative voice in the country.”
It’s almost as if “Net Neutrality” is a Leftist safe word - to be uttered when the free market growing freely causes them too much discomfort.
Few things demonstrate the insular Media-Government Bubble better than this:
Add “Marxist extremist” “Islamic radical” and “murderer sympathizer” to the list of controversial people Google finds worthy of celebrating. The major tech company and search engine decided to use yesterday’s “doodle” to honor Yuri Kochiyama, a Japanese-American radical who converted to Islam and considered terrorists and cop-killers her heroes. Google’s post solidifies the company’s stance of promoting radical leftist icons and ideas while scorning mainstream and traditional American heroes and holidays.
