    Twitter is allowing its users to coordinate criminal behavior on the platform, with dozens of tweets identifying looting targets still on the platform despite the fact that the site was notified by concerned citizens. The company has however changed the description of its official account to “#BlackLivesMatter.” A Twitter search for “Santana Row,” which is the name of a shopping district in San Jose, California, reveals dozens of Twitter users encouraging their followers to target and loot the district. Many of the tweets have been on the platform for days. “let’s riot and raid Santana Row lol,” said one tweet,...

    Saturday on CNN, anchor Don Lemon said called out Hollywood leaders and stars who were afraid to hurt their brand by speaking up amid the nationwide protests after the death of George Floyd. Lemon said, “But what about the leadership in other places? What about Hollywood? Strangely quiet. I see them on Twitter, ‘Oh, I’m loving what Don Lemon’s doing,’ I’m loving what this person’s doing. But they’ve got to do more than that. Especially black celebrities and black leaders and while celebrities and rich Hollywood and rich folks and wealthy people. Why aren’t they helping these young people? These...
  • Why Twitter isn't fact-checking its CEO's tweet of incorrect info (on outside of state rioters)

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s retweet of incorrect facts regarding the unrest in Minneapolis doesn’t fall under the social-media company’s new label system for disputed or misleading tweets. Dorsey, who founded Twitter in 2006, retweeted comments from St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter which incorrectly stated every person arrested in connection with unrest in the Minneapolis area on Friday evening was “from out of state.” An online search of the Hennepin County jail log conducted by Fox 9 in Minneapolis showed an “overwhelming majority” of people arrested in connection with the unrest had Minnesota addresses. The search found 38 of 45 people...

    Twice in a 24-hour period, the president of the United States took to Twitter to endorse violence. The first time, at 12:00 a.m. on Thursday, he retweeted a video in which a supporter says, “The only good Democrat is a dead Democrat.” Then, early Friday morning, as protests over the police killing of George Floyd erupted in Minneapolis and turned violent, Donald Trump tweeted that “THUGS” were “dishonoring” Mr. Floyd’s memory. He concluded with a chilling warning, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Trump is by no means the first American president to talk tough or to threaten the...
  • CNN host Chris Cuomo's viewership has plunged by HALF since he contracted coronavirus after segments with brother Andrew were panned as ratings stunts

    CNN host Chris Cuomo's ratings have plunged 49 percent in the two months since he announced he'd contracted coronavirus, data from Nielsen Media Research shows. Since the week of March 30, Cuomo has dropped from first in his 9pm time slot among cable news hosts to bottom of the barrel, last week averaging just 440,000 daily viewers in the age demographic prized by advertisers. Cuomo's stunning ratings nosedive came after interviews with his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, in lighthearted segments that were widely panned as ratings stunts amid the coronavirus pandemic. Though all cable news saw something of...

    Lady Gaga is holding President Donald Trump responsible for the race riots that have engulfed the country, calling the president a “racist” who “offers nothing but ignorance and prejudice while black lives continue to be taken.” The Oscar-winning pop star and actress posted a lengthy statement on Twitter late Saturday in which she expressed her outrage over the in-custody death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. She also acknowledged her position as a “white, privileged woman” and the need for the “privileged community” to do more for the black community.

    We knew from recent rallies and riots that it’s highly likely the groups behind today’s riots are Domestic terrorists, revolutionary communists, US based radical Islamist organizations and others related to the Democrat Party. Today we have more proof this is the case. We reported a few days ago that Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar’s daughter tweeted out support for the protestors: Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s daughter Isra Hirsi, retweeted a list of supplies for “comrades” who are rioting in Minneapolis. Isra Hirsi is the co-founder of US Youth Climate Strike and her Twitter bio says she ‘hates capitalism.’ Isra Hirsi...

    Twitter has yet to “fact check” a tweet from former CNN contributor and progressive author Reza Aslan that accuses Trump supporters of being responsible the violence and looting that has broken out around the country. “White Supremacists=Trump Supporters. These are Trump supporters burning and looting,” said Aslan on Twitter, in response to a post from a CNN reporter stating that authorities are “monitoring alleged criminals online, including postings by suspected white supremacists trying to incite violence.” From this claim, Aslan somehow inferred that Trump supporters are behind the violence.

    Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has implemented a mandatory city-wide curfew that goes into effect at 8 p.m. Saturday night. The curfew will remain in effect through 6 a.m. Sunday, according to the Philadelphia Police Department’s Twitter page. The curfew means only persons with essential duties will be permitted outdoors. The news comes after hours of violent protests at City Hall and on the surrounding streets.

    Campaign staff for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden are advertising their donations to a group that pays bail fees in Minneapolis after the city’s police jailed people protesting the killing of a black man by a white police officer. At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment. The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis. Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to Reuters that the...

    Though Twitter has a lengthy record of permitting leftists to post blatant lies and evidence-free accusations, this week it took issue with President Trump’s tweet warning of the risk of vote-fraud in vote-by-mail elections. Twitter alleged that a “fact check” shows that vote-fraud is nonexistent. It seems that the so-called fact check relied solely on repeated assertions from Democrats that vote-fraud does not exist to any serious extent. As it turns out, the assertion that vote-fraud is not a serious problem is itself a false statement. Back in 2005 a bipartisan Commission on Federal Election Reform, co-chaired by former President...
  • ‘This BS needs a warning label’: Joy Reid not happy who Bill Barr blamed for riots with no proof ‘when it’s already documented as coming from white nationalist groups’

    Earlier this afternoon, Attorney General Bill Barr, speaking about the rioting in Minneapolis and other U.S. cities, said “it appears the violence is organized and driven by anarchic and far-left extremist groups using Antifa-like tactics” . . . So now, the attorney general, Bill Barr, is attempting to pin the anarchy and infiltration, which is already documented as coming from white nationalist groups, on "left leaning" ANTIFA groups. The goal is to force the media to repeat that. What is his proof? — Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid)

    President Donald Trump is going to war with the social media giants. Now, there’s a move afoot amongst his conservative supporters to abandon Twitter, Trump’s favorite platform and his biggest online rival. This week, Trump and Twitter went back and forth with accusations and counteraccusations, sanctions and threats. Most recently, Twitter flagged Trump’s comments on the George Floyd civil rights protests in Minnesota – leading to Trump calling for the revoking of Section 230 for the social media platform. That revocation would mean Twitter loses its immunity from lawsuits if controversial material gets tweeted. As a result, social media platform...

    Jeff Rich, Twitter’s legal counsel and senior legal director, tweet in February that the president must be “culled from the herd“. Earlier today, Nationalist Review reported that a Twitter employee, Erik Froese, tweeted a call for President Donald Trump to “die in a fire”. Rich’s profile prominently displays his role working for the tech company: “I work @Twitter, but I don’t make content or verification decisions. Tweets – and politics – here are mine alone.

    THERE’S always a moment when an electorate falls out of love with a leader, and the leader is the last to notice. Donald Trump has weathered several. Yet try though he might to mark it as a triumph – that the pandemic has claimed “only” 100,000 American lives, the sombre milestone just crossed – the wider population, especially the elderly so critical to his re-election hopes, must see it differently. Mr Trump believes the truth can be tamed and made to roll over in the White House circus he has created. All the while, he cracks a deafening whip as...

    Twitter is no longer willing to just let President Trump and his critics battle things out on their own. In response to a Tweet from the President on Tuesday morning, the social media giant posted a “What you need to know” disclaimer. It declared: “Trump falsely claimed that mail-in ballots would lead to ‘a Rigged Election.’ However, fact-checkers say there is no evidence that mail-in ballots are linked to voter fraud.”

    This past week, years-long tensions over the rather peculiar Twitter feed of the president of the United States reached a boiling point. President Donald Trump, of late, has been engaged in a rather sordid and baseless bit of social media mudslinging about popular cable host Joe Scarborough's purported involvement in the death of a congressional aide from many years ago. The colorful, off-the-cuff tweeting proclivities of Donald J. Trump have been under a microscope for years. Many expected those habits to change when then-private citizen Trump descended that golden escalator in Trump Tower to announce his presidential run; they did...
