    Twitter, the popular microblogging service, will eliminate its "suggested user" list after users complained it favored Democrats over Republicans in a state election, multiple news outlets reported today. Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said the company would do away with the list on Monday while attending a conference in Malaysia. Political watchdogs alleged that the list, which contained more Democrats than Republicans vying for California's governorship next year, could unfairly harm the GOP candidates. The company created the list last year because executive noticed a large amount of people were creating accounts then not following other users. The list has the...
  • C'mon, Admit It. Twitter Is Useless

    Not long ago, Meghan McCain, maverick progeny and rising media star (because, no doubt, of her impressive intellectual gifts), posted a cleavage-intense picture of herself on her Twitter account. "For years," the 25-year-old would lament later, "I have struggled to accept the fact that the way I look in a tank top comes off more 'sexual' than a flat-chested woman." First, let's all agree on the obvious: A nation that fails to deal with the deep-seated struggles of busty young blondes is a nation that fails us all. Then feel free to wonder why an intelligent young woman feigns astonishment...

    Populace Media Sarah Carlsruh, November 5, 2009 James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles’ undercover videos revealing the scandal of ACORN, with over a million views on YouTube, are a testament to the escalating dominance of new media. At Accuracy in Media’s (AIM) 40th Anniversary Conference on October 23rd, a New Media and the Future of Journalism panel discussed recent technology in the media and the social media movement. Panelist Robert Bluey, after graduating from journalism school, envisioned that he would get a job at the Washington Post; that dream died when he discovered that such organizations did not covet a conservative...

    You Tube has shut down without warning the most subscribed Michael Savage video channel. Imitator777,a You Tube member since August of 2007 had over 350 videos and over 2,500 individual subscribers..this morning we awoke to find everything completely erased..they deleted all his videos and his channel without warning or reason. You Tube has been well known to censor or delete channels in the past (let's face it, they are owned by Google), but this is the first time (to my knowledge) that they have specifically targeted a channel predominantly dedicated to a radio talk show host. Imitator has created a...

    Social networking site Twitter crashed on Friday as millions of users around the world joined the debate over Barack Obama being awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. The site went into meltdown at lunchtime yesterday amid the sheer weight of people commenting on the news, which comes just ten months into his first term in power. The problem was quickly identified and repaired, but Twitter fans experienced issues throughout the afternoon. Yesterday a poll of 1,000 Brits by revealed that 80 per cent believe the award has come too early and only one in five said the award was...

    Obama's Attorney General, Eric Holder, has apparently hired a cadre of left-wing, Democrat campaign bloggers to troll through the Internet looking for news stories and blog posts that denigrate the Obama agenda. After such websites are found it is the job of these secret lefty bloggers to leave comments that come to the support of Obamaism in the comments sections. It seems that Eric Holder has created his own little propaganda unit in a valiant effort to become the Bloggi Riefenstahl of the Obama era. As reported at The Muffled Oar, a blog that first broke the story of Holder's...

    Karl Rove’s Twitter account was suspended? Yes, indeed. Although the account is now up and running, Rove’s gang has a call into Twitter Headquarters to find out what exactly happened. Rove's office told POLITICO: "On Monday evening around 8:20 PM Karl Rove's Twitter account (@karlrove) was temporarily suspended due to unknown reasons. We submitted a support request to Twitter and the account was promptly restored. Karl Rove complies fully with the rules outlined in the Twitter Terms of Service and despite several phone calls to the Twitter corporate office, we've been unable to determine what caused the temporary shut down."

    Retail Politics by: Allie Winegar Duzett, September 30, 2009 On September 22, 2009, freshman congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) took the stage at the Heritage Foundation’s Conservative Bloggers Briefing and showed the crowd how to win friends and influence people all the way to Congress—all the while spending under one hundred thousand dollars. Rep. Chaffetz is the perfect man to address this topic. In 2008, he shocked the world by unseating an incumbent of twelve years, U.S. Chris Cannon (R). And while Cannon had a budget of almost $700,000 for the race, Rep. Chaffetz won using a mere $74,000. Clearly, Rep....

    A few weeks ago Washington Post Managing Editor Raju Narisetti rued in this tweet via his Twitter account: “We can incur all sorts of federal deficits for wars and what not. But we have to promise not to increase it by $1 for healthcare reform? Sad.” Washington Post ombudsman Andrew Alexander cited the tweet in a Friday night blog post about how the newspaper has issued new guidelines, on the use of social network sites, which state “nothing we do must call into question the impartiality of our news judgment.” That forced Narisetti to close his Twitter account. Alexander recounted:...

    Hey, physicians-in-training: Blabbing about patient care on Facebook and Twitter are Doctor No-Nos. A new survey of medical-school deans reveals that med students' unprofessional conduct on social networking sites and blogs is common, according to Time magazine. Many of the future doctors use YouTube, Twitter, Flickr and Facebook to discuss sexual misconduct, post discriminatory statements and talk about patient cases, according to the survey, published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It's ongoing even though the students understand patient-confidentiality laws and have been instructed in the ethical standards of their chosen profession, according to the article...

    On September 10, Andrew Breitbart launched his new site, BigGovernment, with hidden-video camera footage of two young conservative activists who’d gotten Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) employees to advise them on hiding prostitution profits from the IRS. Within hours, Breitbart was doing interviews with reporters who wanted to know how, exactly, the story had come about, and why Big Government was releasing the videos and the identity of the muckrackers — 25-year-old James O’Keefe III and 20-year-old Hannah Giles — so slowly. “It was strategized,” Breitbart told TWI this week, so “that they would be deprived of...

    Obama yesterday expressed concern at the sorry state of the news industry and said that he will look at a news paper bailout, because otherwise, blogs will take over the world, and that would be a threat to democracy, The Hill reports. "I am concerned that if the direction of the news is all blogosphere, all opinions, with no serious fact-checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context, that what you will end up getting is people shouting at each other across the void but not a lot of mutual understanding," he said.

    He is hybrid journalist, content wrangler, glib analyst. But most of all, Andrew Breitbart relishes running against the grain. For starters, he is an unabashed political conservative in a Hollywood dominated by liberals. The man has moxie. Frustrated that like-minded players in his hometown felt too intimidated to speak their mind, he helped organize a support group called "Friends of Abe" as a haven and forum for colleagues with similar ideas and values. The group is now hundreds strong. A pronounced loathing for celebrity journalists, media conglomerates and glitzy TV networks drew him to contribute to nimble, alternative media sites...

She has gained 60,000 new followers since we reported her soaring popularity exactly four weeks ago today. Amazingly, she is expanding her high-profile posture in political debates armed only with a notebook computer and an Internet connection. Palin has used her Facebook page to comment on health care, energy policy, and tort reform. She’s also highlighted other causes, such the celebration of Constitution Day and the commemoration of the eighth anniversary...

    Two gutsy young people did the undercover journalistic legwork that quickly turned public opinion against the radical leftist group ACORN, but their work might have been less effective without the "promotional genius" of Andrew Breitbart. Breitbart, who first made a splash on the new media scene at The Drudge Report, released the first video shot by "the pimp and the prostitute" (James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles) on Sept. 10, the day Breitbart launched his new Web site, It exposed ACORN employees in Baltimore aiding and abetting both underage prostitution and tax fraud.Since then, BigGovernment has released four more video...

    To Set The Record Straight, first pubished in 2008, is much more than a history of the 2004 presidential race, and the effects the Swiftboat veterans had on that campaign. TSTRS uses the Swiftboat veterans' story to focus upon the role the mainstream media has played in shaping American public opinion over the past forty years, from the Vietnam War until the recent past. When Senator Kerry decided to make his military record a central part of his campaign, the Swiftboat veterans who knew him the best were angered and sickened. They had had enough, and they decided literally “to...
