Facebook’s Zuckerberg Admits Bias Problem; Won’t Do Anything About It

Facebook’s fact-checkers, like the legacy media’s predominant accountability sites like Politifact and FactCheck.org, are biased in favor of progressive causes.

And now even CEO Mark Zuckerberg has admitted it.

Four Republican Senators called out the social media powerhouse earlier this month over censorship of a pro-life group’s post and videos that claimed abortion is not medically necessary. The fact-check that led to restrictions to access of the posts was written b – you guessed it – abortionists.

The “offending” posts were separate videos published on Facebook by Live Action: one featuring the group’s president, Lila Rose, and the other featured by neonatologist Dr. Kendra Kolb. The women claimed in each video that abortion is “never medically necessary.”

To fact-check the claims, Facebook enlisted Robin Schickler, an OB-GYN and fellow at the pro-abortion Physicians for Reproductive Health, and Daniel Grossman, director of Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health … Read More ➡

Some Big Tech Companies Don’t Join Call for Gun Control

Mark Zuckerberg

Corporate activism for progressive causes has become so common, that it is now news when social justice warrior CEOs don’t sign joint letters that demand government to address their latest outrage.

That’s the case following the recent mass shootings in the Texas cities of El Paso and Odessa, and in Dayton, Ohio. As part of the usual outcry for more gun control legislation after such incidents, several companies co-signed an open letter addressed to U.S. Senators asking them to address the “public health crisis that demands urgent action.”

The major technology companies of left-leaning Silicon Valley regularly participate in such initiatives, and some smaller ones did join this effort, including the top executives at Airbnb, Lyft, Reddit, Twitter, Uber and Yelp.

“There are steps Congress can, and must, take to prevent and reduce gun violence,” the letter stated. “We need our lawmakers to support common-sense gun laws that … Read More ➡

Corporate Social Activism: The Tail Wags the Dog

Corporations exist primarily to provide goods and services to willing buyers. Yet a growing number of employees believe that this mission must include the role of social change facilitator. They view profit and global salvation as woven together. To accommodate this call for reinvention, some employers are offering their work forces paid leave for activism. Welcome to the age of the radicalized, “woke” employee.

A corporation, whether unionized or not, has a natural interest in addressing employee grievances. Open communication is necessary for workplace morale. But at some companies, top officials have become advocates on such controversial public issues as gun control, immigration and global warming. This trend is almost entirely driven by employees, particularly younger ones. And the politics lean sharply leftward. Amplified by social media, activist workers are trying to persuade employers to be accountable to the general population, also known as “stakeholders.” And they’re getting results.

YouTube Demonetizes Video About Ilhan Omar FEC Complaint


According to a YouTuber known as Viva Frei, his video explaining our Complaint filed Wednesday has been demonetized. We have had no contact with him, and until now, had never heard of him. He has 108,000 subscribers to his channel and the Omar video has almost 15,000 views.

Viva Frei actually does a pretty good job breaking down the Complaint. In fact, his analysis is painstakingly neutral and compares favorably to some of the reports in the regular media. Viva Frei states in the comment section of his video:

So this video was demonetized off the bat – when it was unlisted with 3 views. I requested a manual review, and after review the video was remonetized. 8,500 views later, it was suddenly demonetized yet again. This is absurd… Could everyone tweet this video at YouTube and their team? It’s been absurd for a while. Now it’s just getting ridiculous.

NFL to Bankroll Left-Wing Activists; More Division and Violence on the Way?

Roger Goodell

When it comes to racial shakedowns, few organizations succumb on a grander scale than the National Football League. This tendency was on full display on Tuesday when NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and black rapper/business mogul Jay-Z announced a multiyear partnership “to enhance the NFL’s live game experiences and to amplify the league’s social justice efforts.” More plainly, the league is about to entangle itself further with political radicalism. Goodell and company may believe that the pact is good for public relations, but they could not be more wrong.

The NFL for many years has been a prime target of black political operatives in and out of the league. The active player roster across the league’s 32 teams, after all, is nearly two-thirds black. The activism paid handsome dividends when then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, newly reborn as a Black Lives Matter activist, instituted a pregame ritual during … Read More ➡

Google Fails Bias Test (Again) On Mass Shootings

The horrible dual mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio two weeks ago provided another opportunity for Google to demonstrate some balance in delivering evenhanded results for users who searched for news about the incidents.

But the Silicon Valley giant failed again.

According to an audit conducted by the nonpartisan media watchdog group AllSides, the dominant search engine on the Internet dispensed articles about the massacres that favored liberal sources over conservative – and also over more balanced sources – by a vast margin.

AllSides – which exists to provide its readers information from all sources while also identifying the worldview of those sources – evaluated 522 shooting-related articles from Google’s “Top Stories” section during the three days that followed the events. The results showed a whopping 70 percent of articles from “Lean Left” or “Left” sources, with only 4 percent produced from “Lean Right” or “Right” … Read More ➡

Senators Demand Answers on Google’s Huawei Collaboration

Google CEO Sundar Pichai

Only a month after announcing it had discontinued development of a search engine for China, and that it does little business there, Google is under scrutiny again for partnering with telecom manufacturer Huawei – which is tightly associated with the communist government – to develop one of those smart speakers that listen to you while you are at home.

The intention was for Huawei to market the speaker outside of China, including in the United States, according to a report from the tech website The Information. The device would use Google’s popular Assistant technology for smart speakers. The report said the ties between the companies were “even closer than previously understood.”

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.), Josh Hawley (Mo.), and Marco Rubio (Fla.) co-authored a letter sent Wednesday to Google CEO Sundar Pichai that sought answers about the tech giants’ collaboration on the project. … Read More ➡

Amazon Goes All-In on Speech Police Movement on Behalf of LGBTs

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos

Last week Amazon celebrated another record Prime Day, its two-day sale event with boffo offers that generate lots of transactions and revenues.

But if you are a troubled soul looking for advice and counsel through a certain genre of books, you were out of luck.

In yet another example of Big Tech’s efforts to act as the Speech and Ideology Police, the giant online retailer has banned from its site books that address homosexuality – namely, how to leave the lifestyle, if you so desire. Titles specifically prohibited are those by the Catholic psychologist considered the “father” of study and guidance in what LGBT advocates disparagingly call “conversion therapy” – the late Dr. Joseph Nicolosi – as well as books written by individuals who have actually abandoned the gay way of life, by choice.

According to reports in pro-gay publications, the move was … Read More ➡

New Details of Google Exec’s Behavior Put Spotlight on Company’s Policies

Revelations last week from a former Google executive’s legal dispute with his estranged wife underscore an even greater need for the search giant to adopt measures outlined in a recent shareholder proposal presented by the National Legal and Policy Center.

The new developments came from the release of court filings by a California state judge in a clash between Andy Rubin, creator of Google’s popular Android operating system, and his wife Rie. The New York Times had reported in a widely distributed October story that the Silicon Valley company gave Rubin a celebratory send-off upon his departure in 2014, which cloaked the fact that he was told to resign over coercive sexual misconduct and an affair with a subordinate. Rather than quietly send their prized employee away, he was instead granted a golden parachute of $90 million – paid out in increments of approximate $2 million per … Read More ➡

Leftist Wayfair Employees Rant Against Sale of Beds for Illegal Immigrant Children

Wayfair employees walk through the streets of Boston in protest./IMAGE: YouTube

Leftist mobs employed by the likes of Big Tech companies like Amazon, Google and Microsoft have attempted – often successfully – to pressure their bosses to discontinue contracts with the federal government over policies they disagree with.

Examples of agencies that engage in such “odious” policies include the Department of Defense (“making war”) and Customs and Borders Protection (“putting migrant children in ‘cages’”).

The most recent example of such pressure tactics is against the online furniture retailer Wayfair, which last week was subject to an employee walk-out in Boston to protest the company’s contract to provide beds for Baptist Child and Family Services (BCFS), a nonprofit organization that operates detention centers for illegally-present migrant children in Texas. The workers objected to the $200,000 sale over the characterization of the facilities as “concentration camps” by Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
