For decades, it’s been no secret that liberal bias controls many American institutions. In 2016, the left-leaning bias of the mainstream media was on full display, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
...
For now, the internet gives conservatives a chance to even the playing field.
Predictably, liberals are not happy about this threat to their monopoly on information. In response to Trump’s victory, they started a campaign to label online conservative news sources as “fake news.”
...
In the fight to censor conservatives online, they unfortunately have a massive ally. Like Hollywood, the media, and college campuses, major American tech companies are also bastions of left-wing thought. Now, companies like Google are finding ways to shut down the debate online.

From PJ Media:

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.
...
It’s easy enough to figure out the direction of this project by taking it for a test drive. A search for “Scalise” returned four results, one of which didn’t even mention Steve Scalise, the congressman who was shot by a crazed leftist in June.
...
In short, this unholy alliance plans to shut down conservative media by cutting off the platforms that support them. Of course, they cover this up by claiming they’re simply targeting “hate speech”. However, conservatives have been around long enough to know that what the left defines as hate speech tends to cover any speech that doesn’t align with liberal orthodoxy.

For a few years, conservatives have been able to use the internet as a platform for political thought. Sadly, those days could now be numbered.

The move is afoot to insure that everything the majority of people read is from a liberal viewpoint.


A frighting thought in both senses.

I find the majority of MSM to be biased-left leaning.
Hence the popularity of the so called alt-media, which the MSM hates as it is stealing from not only their propaganda, but revenue.
Fear sells.

Regardless, any and all news, forums, pundits, should always be taken with a given degree of skepticism. Do not just drink the kool-aid because you agree with it. Maintain your objectivity. Question authority always.
Beware of the guy with only one Cast Iron pan . . . he likely knows how to use it.

Sadly - no side is innocent and both want to rewrite current events and history! Combine that with an ignorant and easily distracted populace, you have America 2017!

A case in point is the Confederate Flag! I doubt one in a thousand (on either side) knows what it looks like or its history! I have never seen the flag of the Confederacy plastered on a pickup or a redneck - have you?

Being from Nevada, our history classes would spent "perhaps" thirty minutes on the entire American Civil War! Without all the drama and BS from both sides, it is actually a fascinating bit of history! Swamp
