A new study shows almost everyone thinks that almost everyone desires fame. But the survey also shows that almost no one craves it for himself. Instead, the vast majority say they believe that personal success means “following your interests and talents to be the best you can be at something you love.”

Stephen Green finds a way to talk about one of Google’s forbidden topics without going broke. He’s forced to refer to certain companion robots as “knitting” bots to avoid getting flagged and demonetized for appealing to prurient interests. Together with Bill Whittle and Scott Ott, Steve examines the benefits and drawbacks of these high-tech “knitting bots” while trying to avoid Google and YouTube’s secret defamation.
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.
The NY Times finds a troubled young college dropout who claims YouTube turned him from Liberal to Alt-Right radical — that he was “brainwashed” by YouTube’s recommendation algorithm which led him ever deeper into the right-wing “rabbit hole.” The Times illustrates the story with a collage of commentators, including Bill Whittle, Stefan Molyneux, Steven Crowder, and Ben Shapiro, implying they’re culpable for the brainwashing. Bill Whittle reacts to this new, libelous, effort by a Progressive flagship to shut down freedom of 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?
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?
As Hollywood slides into politically correct irrelevancy, a new wave of content creators, some armed with little more than an iPhone, capture the imagination of the American public. Politics is downstream from culture, and Bill Whittle explains the tectonic shift driven by the democratization of content production.
Lara Logan says it’s professional suicide, but speaks truth about news media bias in an interview on the ‘Mike Drop’ podcast with Navy SEAL Mike Ritland. She calls out the overwhelming Left-wing, and anti-Trump, tilt in reporting, and slams journalists who use anonymous government sources.
Is four minutes the new eternity? That’s what many think when it comes to internet video, but has the average attention span fallen so far that it’s become nearly impossible to train the next generation of engineers? The men of Right Angle examine a phenomenon that poses a threat to our entire educational system. Right […]
Bill Whittle says we’re watching the demise of the cultural institution that — more than any other — has shaped the American mind. With Stephen Green and Scott Ott, Bill considers the impact of the death of Hollywood, and what will take its place.

Its well known that YouTube censors conservative content on its platform. It does this through arbitrary age limits and demonetization of otherwise harmless videos that are not violating any policy. In fact, it would not be surprising if this very video is censored for calling out Google and YouTube. How can conservatives overcome this blatant […]
