    School officials at Union College in New York recently exposed the personal contact information of student members of the conservative Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) Union College chapter, resulting in a deluge of harassing comments and attacks from progressive students and activists. The story: Samuel Levit, chairman of the YAF Union College chapter, said the group has “been bombarded and slandered with hateful rhetoric, labeling, and vile mischaracterizations” after the university revealed the contact information, according to The College Fix. Union College exposed the YAF students after the group recently took to Twitter and Instagram to condemn the “violence, looting,...

    The Washington Post via SF Gate ^ | June 28, 2020 | by Margaret Sullivan, The Amazon Post
    It's another one of those Trump Era realities best described as unsurprising but nevertheless shocking. Three serious research efforts have put numerical weight - yes, data-driven evidence - behind what many suspected all along: Americans who relied on Fox News, or similar right-wing sources, were duped as the coronavirus began its deadly spread. Dangerously duped. The studies "paint a picture of a media ecosystem that amplifies misinformation, entertains conspiracy theories and discourages audiences from taking concrete steps to protect themselves and others," wrote my Washington Post colleague Christopher Ingraham in an analysis last week. Here's the reality, now backed by...

    "Northwestern research confirms other reports about Google’s alleged news search bias favoring liberal outlets and outcomes. During the 2016 campaign research psychologist Robert Epstein confirmed earlier findings revealed in a viral YouTube video that showed Google’s auto-complete search function (when you start typing and Google recommends various search terms) offered only positive suggestions when beginning a search on “Hillary Clinton,” but no negative ones. Google-owned YouTube has now censored that damning video."

    Google suggests negative terms for capitalism, MUCH more often than it does for communism. As an experiment, I typed COMMUNISM A (without the caps), COMMUNISM B, COMMUNISM C, etc. I then tried the same with capitalism. In the entirety of communism A-Z, there are only 5 negative terms suggested. By contrast, in the entirety of capitalism A-Z, there are 38 negative terms suggested. The below list shows the exact suggestions for communism. 1. communism kills 2. communism cons 3. communism disadvantages 4. communism or barbarism 5. communism totalitarianism The below list shows the exact suggestions for capitalism. 1. capitalism and...

    Another poll created for Fox News is shown to have heavy bias. We discussed last October 11, 2019, how a Fox News ‘Trump impeachment poll’ over-sampled Democrats, thus creating bias in the polling results. Once again a new 2020 Fox News Election Poll is riddled with bias.

    TULSA, Okla. - President Donald Trump drew lower-than-expected turnout at his first rally in months on Saturday in Tulsa amid a tense political backdrop, nationwide anti-racism protests, and warnings from health officials about the coronavirus. Trump began the rally, his first since early March, by thanking the crowd of supporters indoors for coming, despite efforts from "some very bad people outside," alluding to the campaign's unfounded claim that protesters were responsible for the many empty seats inside Tulsa's 19,000-seat Bank of Oklahoma Center by blocking rally-goers from entering. "We begin! We begin! We begin our campaign," Trump said to applause....

    What is the role of women in a political movement as misogynistic as President Donald Trump’s? What does it take to be the consort to an authoritarian? Washington Post writer Mary Jordan’s deeply reported book focusing on Melania Trump tackles, in its own way, several of these questions. While the initial buzz centered around rumors that the first lady leveraged her husband’s election to revise her prenup - this book is much more than a standard Bob Woodward-style recitation of insider accounts. Far from the helpless stereotype that has become a running punchline, Jordan’s research reveals something larger: the personality...

    The Associated Press changed its writing style guide Friday to capitalize the “b” in the term Black when referring to people in a racial, ethnic or cultural context, weighing in on a hotly debated issue. The change conveys “an essential and shared sense of history, identity and community among people who identify as Black, including those in the African diaspora and within Africa,” John Daniszewski, AP’s vice president of standards, said in a blog post Friday. “The lowercase black is a color, not a person.” The news organization will also now capitalize Indigenous in reference to original inhabitants of a...

    WASHINGTON -- It was June 2015, and Democrats felt the nation’s political and cultural winds blowing their way. The Supreme Court ruled in President Barack Obama’s favor on landmark gay marriage and health care cases. The White House was awash in rainbow light, a symbol of a liberal cultural takeover that seemed unstoppable. The following year, Donald Trump was elected president, propelled by a revolt of voters who weren’t on board. As he barrels toward the November election, Trump is again positioning himself as the spokesperson for voters resisting a new wave of cultural change, ready to ride any backlash...

    Well, it looks like NBC News’ Verification Center tried to go after conservative news sites and ended up peddling fake news instead. It comes after a story they pushed claiming that Google has demonetized The Federalist. Yet, Google denied they did any such thing, even refuting it on their Twitter account. This forced NBC News to edit their piece:  Google has banned ZeroHedge, a far-right website that often traffics in conspiracy theories, from its advertising platform over policy violations found in the comments section of stories about recent Black Lives Matter protests.Google also issued a warning on Tuesday to The...

    ABC News published a glowing piece about Rayshard Brooks, the man killed by former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe after he resisted arrest, assaulted an officer, stole his taser and discharged it, saying he was remembered for his “hard work and dedication to family.” The news outlet spoke with those who worked with him at a construction company in Toledo, Ohio, and his wife. Though ABC describes that he was in Ohio “tending to his father.” What's not mentioned, however, is that he had failed to notify his probation officer of his new address and a warrant was issued for...

    WASHINGTON - The temporary fences that separated protesters from the White House have come down. But its occupant, President Donald Trump, appears to be more isolated than ever. Recent opinion surveys, including a poll from Reuters/Ipsos this week, continue to show Trump trailing Democratic challenger Joe Biden significantly with just over four months until the Nov. 3 election. But more revealingly, they show a president increasingly disconnected from the American electorate whose views have changed rapidly following the May 25 death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, while in Minneapolis police custody. The lightning-quick shift in public opinion has...

    LOWNDES COUNTY, Ala. -- The area known as Alabama's Black Belt has been hit hard by the coronavirus. The mostly rural region, which includes more than a dozen counties and is famous for pivotal Civil Rights-era events like the march from Selma and the Montgomery bus boycott, has some of the highest infection rates in the state. It also has high unemployment, low income levels - several counties have poverty rates north of 30 percent, according to a 2019 University of Alabama analysis - and limited access to grocery stores, sewage service and health care. Some hard-hit areas, like Lowndes...

    TULSA, Okla. - When President Donald Trump takes the stage at his first rally in three months on Saturday night, the scene in Tulsa, Oklahoma, will be familiar: A large venue filled with ardent supporters wearing “Keep America Great” hats and T-shirts. But outside the 19,199-seat arena is a country reshaped by the coronavirus pandemic, an economic collapse and a wave of protests over police brutality and racial injustice, a trio of crises that have dented his support just months before the Nov. 3 election. Trump’s campaign advisers believe the rally is a way to rejuvenate his base and display...

    Two far-right news sites, ZeroHedge and The Federalist, will no longer be able to generate revenue from any advertisements served by Google Ads, according to NBC News. The two sites were found to be in violation of Google’s policies on content related to race when they pushed unsubstantiated claims about the Black Lives Matter protests sparked in recent weeks by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody on May 25, NBC reported. Google did not immediately respond to an inquiry from The Hill. “We have strict publisher policies that govern the content ads can run on and explicitly...
