  • Is Google Working with Liberal Groups to Snuff Out Conservative Websites?

    PJ Media ^ | 08/19/17 | Paula Bolyard
    Google revealed in a blog post that it is now using machine learning to document "hate crimes and events" in America. They've partnered with liberal groups like ProPublica, BuzzFeed News, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to make information about "hate events" easily accessible to journalists. And now, there are troubling signs that this tool could be used to ferret out writers and websites that run afoul of the progressive orthodoxy. In the announcement, Simon Rogers, data editor of Google News Labs, wrote: Now, with ProPublica, we are launching a new machine learning tool to help journalists covering hate...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 8/14/17 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    In this world we may have knowledge or repose but we may not have both. The human condition is a series of decisions; we either deal with them or circumstances deal with us. Once a bell is rung in our presence we cannot un-ring it. All of these apply to our relationship to the Drudge Report. For years we have looked to Matt Drudge and his Drudge Report as a place where we could get some actual news. During the presidential election cycle last year this was especially true. While the foaming-at-the-mouth liars in the media churned out their disinformation...
  • Google Intentionally Crushing Left-Wing Websites!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euEMbrFr7kY It turns out we don't have to wait for Net Neutrality to be gutted to see restricted access to left-wing news sites. Google is practicing its own form of censorship by revamping its search protocol to limit your ability to read pages such as Wikileaks, DemocracyNow! and AlterNet. Lee Camp has more on how Google is leading the way in making sure the masses stay uninformed about all the ways in which our capitalist society is killing us.

    PARIS, December 2, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) --The socialist government of France passed a bill after one day's debate that criminalizes websites that might dissuade women from abortion. The “digital interference” bill is aimed at cracking down on French websites that would, in the words of the bill, "deliberately mislead, intimidate and/or exert psychological or moral pressure to discourage recourse to abortion." Convicted website owners could face two years in prison and fines up to 30,000 euros ($31,799 USD). The majority left voted in a block for the bill while the minority right formed a block against it. Bruno Retailleau, who heads...

    September 29, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — The French minister for Families, Childhood and Women’s Rights is celebrating the Global Day of Action for Access to Safe and Legal Abortion with a plan to gag a number of websites that “mislead” women into thinking they give complete and honest information on abortion. Laurence Rossignol unveiled plans to criminalize those sites that aim to dissuade women from obtaining a “voluntary interruption of pregnancy,” a procedure that is 100 percent state-funded in France during the first 12 weeks of gestation. Offenders will incur prison sentences of up to two years and fines up to 30,000...

    A convicted Islamic extremist in Indonesia running a popular jihadi website has been profiting from revenue generated by online advertising platforms according to reports. Muhammad Jibril Abdul Rahman, whose website Arrahmah.com featuring pictures of beheadings has garnered 600,000, and on occasion upwards of 1 million visitors, a month, has been using platforms such as Google’s Adsense to feature advertisements from companies such as Microsoft, IBM and Citigroup, according to Britain’s Financial Times. Jibril, also dubbed the ‘Prince of Jihad,’ was sentenced to five years in prison for his role in the 2009 bombing of Jakarta’s JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton hotels...

    Pro-Trump 'news' websites have flooded the internet with demonstrably false propaganda in the last few months. These phony reports are presumably designed to sway undecided voters toward presidential candidate Donald Trump, while relentlessly slandering his opponent Senator Ted Cruz. In the wake of the Wisconsin primary, for example, supporters of Donald Trump took to social media posting what appeared to be valid news reports making fraudulent claims that electronic voting machines in Wisconsin were switching from Donald Trump to Ted Cruz... continued >>>

    that was installing a backdoor through which it was altering core WordPress files so it could log and steal user credentials from infected sites. First signs of something being wrong were spotted by the Sucuri team, a company that provides website security. Sucuri's researchers were alerted by one of their clients to the presence of a weirdly named file (auto-update.php) that didn't exist until a recent plugin update. The plugin in question was Custom Content Type Manager (CCTM), a popular WordPress plugin for creating custom post types that, in the three years since it was uploaded on the WordPress plugin...

A few of these web sites may be run by truly insane people who actually believe what they publish, but if so that is a small minority. One of the proofs of this is how obviously fake the articles are.As you’ll note from the list below, many of the sites mentioned are some of the most popular in alternative media with communities in excess of millions...

    Commenters could cross-site script. Wordpress developer Automattic is urging users to urgently update their installations of the company's publishing platform to fix a critical vulnerability that could lead to attackers taking over entire sites. Jouko Pynnönen of security vendor Klikki.fi discovered a cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw in WordPress that allows commenters to inject Javascript into sites. When admin users check the comments to moderate them and execute the Javascript they contain attackers can gain full control of the target WordPress site through the plugin and theme editors. The vulnerability takes advantage of the TEXT data type in the MySQL database...

Do any of the current browsers offer any way to block audible ads?

    NEW YORK -- Joseph Curl, a veteran political writer and most recently an editor for The Drudge Report, unveiled a new politics-focused, aggregation-heavy site on Monday called Right Read. In an interview with The Huffington Post, Curl said Right Read is “going to be an aggregation site in which I read hundreds and hundreds of stories so you don’t have to.” He noted that his nearly four years working on The Drudge Report, the conservative aggregation powerhouse, gave him the skills needed to wade through the sheer volume of stories published each day in order to find the most newsy,...

I am not really all that tech- or internet-savvy. I have seen many web-sites listed as sources for the many threads here. Are there any other sites where information about all things politics and current affairs is available? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    The state that served as a template for President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act had so much trouble coordinating with the federal government that it became a model of another sort: ineptitude. […] Massachusetts was one of several states where the ambition of running their own health insurance marketplace inside a new federal system ran into a harsh reality. Some, like Oregon and Nevada, folded and decided to go with the federal exchange for the second round of open enrollment, which began Saturday. Others, like Maryland and Massachusetts, fired their technology contractors and are hoping for better results this time....
