Facebook outsources screening of gruesome, cruel videos, to a sick sweatshop where workers suffer PTSD and other effects of horrifying work under terrible conditions. How does that square with the social media giant’s happy mission of uniting people around the world? And if violent videos of animal abuse pass the rigorous screening, why is it so hard for limited-government conservatives to get their message out.
Bill Whittle finds three reasons to break up Google, YouTube, Facebook and other social media companies that use algorithms to suppress free speech. This is not merely the revenge of the Right over demonetization. Bias without consent, practical monopoly status, and the distinction between carriers and publishers all lead to the conclusion that even conservatives should cheer the dissolution of these “private” businesses.
YouTube demonetized popular conservative comic commentator Steven Crowder, in a crackdown on so-called “hate speech.” But are social media anti-cyberbullying efforts just a discriminatory Progressive speech code designed to make conservative voices shut up? Is YouTube obligated to pass on advertising dollars to any creator, no matter how abhorrent his ideas or hateful his speech?
If the Progressives who run Facebook, Twitter, Google and the rest get stripped of their power by a bipartisan movement to breakup these monopolies, can you imagine your future on a truly free internet? After the breakup of Ma Facebook, when hand-crafted algorithms no longer control what you see, what you don’t see, and which content creators can thrive or survive, how will that change politics in the United States?
Faith Gardner at Daily Kos says as conservatives conquer and take over Facebook, Progressives need to learn how to whine and shout louder…because that’s what it took for conservatives to win Facebook. Bill Whittle labels and debunks this classic Leftist tactic.
Will conservatives join the crusade of Democratic presidential hopeful, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, as she battles to break up Ma Facebook? Or, will they defend craven capitalistic business practices?
New study shows very Conservative older people are much more likely to share fake news on social media than younger folks, moderates or Liberals. Bill Whittle challenges the study, the findings, and the explanation of the phenomenon.
Some employers now force workers to sign a “morality clause” that can get them fired, at the sole discretion of the boss, if they become a scandal on Twitter — even if they did nothing wrong. Should your entire life, including your political ideas, be under your employer’s purview? Could someone who hates you get […]
Mark Zuckerberg went from tech wunderkind, to the kid who can’t be trusted with a secret. Stephen Green asks Bill Whittle and Scott Ott if Facebook has become a behemoth worthy of U.S. anti-trust prosecution, or at least some kind of regulatory restraint. Right Angle is a production of the Bill Whittle Network, a member-supported […]
“Facebook v. Sabo” After making posters mocking a potential Mark Zuckerberg Presidential campaign, conservative artist Sabo’s account was suspended by Facebook. Watch the video to see Bill, Steve, and Scott give their reactions to this suppression of free speech.
Mark Zuckerberg is all about open borders and unlocked doors. For you. For himself, well, he’s buying an exclusion zone so no one can even SEE into Mr. Unlocked Doors place.
Faceless Facebook flunkies allege that they routinely suppressed conservative trending stories while artificially boosting others. Scott Ott is on the case!
