Facebook Filtered out Conservatives for Years

Contrary to its claims that Trending stories were selected automatically, Facebook used a team of hand-picked leftist journos.  They routinely suppressed “conservative” news.  Facebook denies that, but its Guidelines had an obvious effect: a very aggressive filtering out conservative news.

Gizmodo, May 9, 2016: Former Facebook Workers: We Routinely Suppressed Conservative News (1)

Facebook workers routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers from the social network’s influential “trending” news section, according to a former journalist who worked on the project. This individual says that workers prevented stories about the right-wing CPAC gathering, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, and other conservative topics from appearing in the highly-influential section, even though they were organically trending among the site’s users.

Who leans left, falls left. The Dirty 129

This is a summary of When Silicon Valley Went Off the Cliff, focusing on connections and parallels between the short lived “ban alarmism” and climate alarmism.  From January 28 through  February 8, a number of Silicon Valley and Washington state corporate executives participated in an attempt to topple President Trump, orchestrated by the Left after President Trump signed  the original order, Executive Order No. 13769 Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States on January 27.  WA Attorney General Bob Ferguson, one of the Attorneys General United for Clean Power, filed a stinky lawsuit against President Trump and succeeded to halt implementation of the Executive order.  129 corporations, who hold monopolies in Internet search, “social media,” TV and movie streaming, as well as other markets for speech and press, filed an Amici Brief supporting the rogue Attorney General against the President.  Their reaction to the Executive order was so out of proportion that an analogy with climate alarmism immediately sprung  to mind.  Here, I do not recite the original Executive order because I expect that readers did not trust to the Fake Stream Media reporting about it.

Some of the social dynamics behind this overreaction are described in the essay When Silicon Valley Went Off the Cliff.  This new low looks like a development of climate alarmism, compressed in time from 30 years to 10 days and happening on the scale of corporations instead of nations.  Like a small scale experiment with societal instability, one might say.   Continue reading Who leans left, falls left.

Google: hard-Left search engine?

There is an interesting comment on my WUWT article from somebody with insider’s knowledge of Google Search backroom operations. This is a direct quote that cements the need for a skeptical search):

There are countless other reports of manipulation of conservative sites and blogs. With Google’s longstanding policy of favoring inbound links from .edu and .gov blogs, they’ve effectively created their own hard-Left political search engine.

Climate Sanity Search is Unveiled

Using Google or other general search engines to find reliable information on anything related to climate change has become almost impossible, because the search results are dominated by alarmist nonsense. I estimate that the alarmist propaganda machine receives tens of billions dollars annually. Our tax money at work! (As well as our pension savings, tuition payments, utility fees, etc.)

So, I created a modest Climate of Sanity and Freedom Search page to help everyone to find the needle of facts and reason in a haystack of con and nonsensus.

This is a work in progress.  Opinions and suggestions are welcome.
