You learn something new every day. I've been on Facebook for X number of years and I've never, ever noticed the "trending on Facebook" feed on the right panel of the interface. It turns out that this overlooked (by me) "news" feed is a primary news source for billions of Facebook users. A rumor spread that Facebook employees were surpassing conservative trends by twerking the algorithms to just highlight news from the NYTimes, CNN and Mother Jones and this accusation forced Zuck to take unusual measures - basically to deny the charge. However, he did invite "conservatives" to come visit the FB HQ and learn something about the company.

My question is: Why would anyone care what's trending on Facebook? Have you ever seen the crap that people post and link to on Facebook? It's all mindless drivel and political propaganda with some of the stupidest memes imaginable. I'm not talking about the great unwashed - I'm talking about my Friends! They post the most inane content imaginable and I'm supposed to be interested in what these people find important. Of course the Trending Feed is "liberal" because it's always the liberals who are self-righteously blowing up my news feed with their hate and sanctimony. The conservative quietly sift through the crap and wish people happy birthday or post prom pictures. The slant is not caused by the algorithm - it's caused by the people and the different approaches right-wingers and left-wingers take in voicing their political views.

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
