Google staffers discussed burying conservative news outlets, but tech giant claims talks didn’t amount to anything

Google staffers reportedly discussed burying conservative news organizations in the company’s search function with the goal of impacting future elections – but the tech giant says nothing came out of the conversations. Google’s co-founder Sergey Brin famously admitted in a leaked video that staffers were “upset” about President Trump’s 2016 victory over Hillary Clinton – but a bombshell report by The Daily Caller’s Peter Hasson reveals that Google staffers considered taking action. The Daily Caller reported late Thursday that it obtained internal Google communications that show “internal Google discussions went beyond expressing remorse over Clinton’s loss to actually discussing ways Google could prevent…

CNN fires political commentator for criticizing Israel

CNN released Thursday political commentator Marc Lamont Hill, a day after he made incendiary comments in a United Nations speech in which he condoned the use of force by Palestinians against Israel. “Marc Lamont Hill is no longer under contract with CNN,” said a CNN spokesperson. Mr. Hill, a Temple University professor and liberal analyst who was dropped by Fox in 2010, told a U.N. panel that Palestinians should be able to use force against Israel, citing the example of the slave revolts. “We must recognize the right of an occupied people to defend itself,” Mr. Hill said. “We must…

CNN Is an Enemy of Free Speech, a Fascist Censor and an Apologist for War Criminals

Tucker Carlson delivered a stunning monologue Wednesday, slamming CNN for posing as a champion of free speech, after the network spent months trying to have competitors silenced and banned. Carlson addressed CNN’s lawsuit against the Trump administration for revoking Jim Acosta’s White House access. “In the past couple of days, you’ve heard a lot of pumping and puffing about free speech and freedom of the press, and how those freedoms are currently imperiled by the White House, and to be clear, we are for free speech. Unfettered, absolute free speech.” Carlson urged. “And we cannot help but notice that some…

In One Year, MSNBC Covered Stormy Daniels 455 Times, War in Yemen 0

As FAIR has noted before (1/8/18, 3/20/18), to MSNBC, the carnage and destruction the US and its Gulf Monarchy allies are leveling against the poorest country in the Arab world is simply a non-issue. On July 2, a year had passed since the cable network’s last segment mentioning US participation in the war on Yemen, which has killed in excess of 15,000 people and resulted in over a million cases of cholera. The US is backing a Saudi-led bombing campaign with intelligence, refueling, political cover, military hardware and, as of March, ground troops. None of this matters at all to…

Latest Crazy Leftist Conspiracy Theory: Trump Will Stage Military Coup To Stay In Power

The latest crazy idea being bandied around the leftist broadcast media is that President Trump will order a military coup if he loses the election in 2020 and seize dictatorial control. Yes, it’s nuts, but its being regularly suggested by talking heads on MSNBC and CNN. The latest to do so is Morning Joe regular Donny Deutsch, who asked viewers to “Imagine two years from now.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jnx0u85MuyU “We will have a close election and let’s say a Democrat wins. We’ve watched this man, Donald Trump. Donald Trump will come out and say, he was already teeing it up in 2016,” Deutsch…

Mark Zuckerberg has refused to attend an ‘international grand committee’ investigating fake news at Facebook and its impact on elections. Rebecca Stimson, Facebook’s head of public policy for the UK, turned down an invite from the governments of Ireland, Argentina, Australia, Britain and Canada to attend a hearing scheduled for November 27.

Fox News Twitter Account Goes Dark After Left-Wing Activist Threats

The Fox News Twitter account has been dark since November 8, ostensibly protesting social media’s lack of action in response to a threat against the political host Tucker Carlson by purported left-wing activists. The network stopped tweeting after posting one last, now-deleted tweet, showing an alleged left-wing group protesting directly in front of Tucker’s private residence last Wednesday, chanting “Racist scumbag, leave town!”, according to the Hill. The Tribune Media content manager Scott Gustin said the Fox News Twitter account was shuttered in response to the social media giant ignoring pleas from the network to stop users from posting unkind statements about Carlson. The…

White House Stands By Decision to Ban CNN Reporter Amid Row Over “Doctored” Clip

Jim Acosta aggressively pressed Donald Trump for answers during a press conference following the US midterm elections. According to the White House, the reporter “placed hands” on an intern when she tried to take the mic from him. Trump called him a “rude terrible person,” and after the incident, Acosta’s access to the White House was revoked. The White House has refused to back down after revoking CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s access despite a backlash from the journalist community and claims that the video of the argument had been altered. “The question is: did the reporter make contact or not? The video is clear, he…

Cord cutting accelerates as pay TV loses 1 million customers in largest-ever quarterly loss

Scratch the theory that cord cutting might be decelerating. Cable and satellite TV providers lost about 1.1 million subscribers during the July to September period, the largest quarterly loss ever – and the first time the industry lost more than 1 million subscribers in a quarter, according to media and telecommunications research firm MoffettNathanson. After Dish Network reported its third-quarter earnings Wednesday, the New York-headquartered research firm tallied up the publicly reported subscriber losses to arrive at the finding. Dish lost 341,000 subscribers in the third quarter, compared to adding 16,000 in the same period a year ago. Overall, Dish…

A Mountain Home man is in custody after investigators say he threatened the life of a CNN journalist. Investigators from Atlanta say Benjamin Craig Matthews, 39, called CNN more than 40 times from a cell phone. In the calls, he is alleged to have said he would like to “kick the [expletive] out of DL.” Don Lemon is the anchor of CNN Tonight. In subsequent calls, investigators say Matthews asked CNN’s operator “Could I be directed to DL’s dead body hanging from a tree?” In another call, made on Nov. 1, he asks “Is DL dead yet? Can you help…

CNN’s Acosta denied entry to White House following aggressive Trump press-conference

The Trump administration has pulled CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press credentials after a heated exchange with Trump during a press conference on Wednesday. Acosta found out when the Secret Service blocked his entry. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed Acosta’s credentials had been revoked, stating “We will never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.” Acosta appeared to push the woman’s arm down as she tried to take the microphone away from him while he was haranguing the president. …over the course of 1.5 hours including several from…

CNN President: Anytime We Break Away from Trump Coverage ‘The Audience Goes Away’

CNN President Jeff Zucker said his network has to cover President Trump as much as possible because when they stop reporting on him the viewers leave. “People say all the time, ‘Oh, I don’t want to talk about Trump. I’ve had too much Trump,’ ” Zucker told Vanity Fair. “And yet at the end of the day, all they want to do is talk about Trump. We’ve seen that, anytime you break away from the Trump story and cover other events in this era, the audience goes away. So we know that, right now, Donald Trump dominates.” Zucker made his comments in…

CNN’s Lemon doubles down: ‘Evidence is overwhelming’ that white men are ‘biggest terror threat’

CNN’s Don Lemon doubled down Wednesday on his comment earlier this week that the “biggest terror threat in this country are white men.” Lemon said Wednesday that the “evidence is overwhelming” that the statement is true. The CNN anchor’s comments have been condemned on the right, a fact Lemon noted during his Wednesday show. “Earlier this week, I made some comments about that in a conversation with Chris [Cuomo],” Lemon said. “I said that the biggest terror threat in this country comes from radicals on the far right, primarily white men. That angered some people. But let’s put emotion aside…

Breitbart Tells Sleeping Giants Founder To Prepare For Lawsuit Over Advertiser War

Attorneys for Breitbart News sent a letter Wednesday to Matt Rivitz, the founder of left-wing activist group Sleeping Giants, demanding he preserve certain documents and communications ahead of a possible lawsuit. Rivitz’s group has been waging an intense pressure campaign against Breitbart’s advertisers ever since President Donald Trump won the 2016 election. The left-wing group has been successful: 90 percent of Breitbart’s advertisers left over the span of two months in 2017 and the site has continued bleeding sponsors thanks to Sleeping Giants’ ongoing campaign. (RELATED: How The Left Turned Big Tech Into Their Speech Police) Now Breitbart is preparing to take legal…

Facebook Censorship of Alternative Media “Just the Beginning,” Says Top Neocon Insider

This month, Facebook and Twitter deleted the accounts of hundreds of users, including many alternative media outlets maintained by American users. Among those wiped out in the coordinated purge were popular sites that scrutinized police brutality and U.S. interventionism like The Free Thought Project, Anti-Media, Cop Block and journalists like Rachel Blevins. Facebook claimed that these sites had “broken our rules against spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior.” However, sites like The Free Thought Project were verified by Facebook and widely recognized as legitimate sources of news and opinion. John Vibes, an independent reporter who contributed to Free Thought, accused Facebook…

1,300 US Communities Have No Daily News Coverage As Newspaper Industry Continues Downward Spiral

An estimated 1,300 U.S. communities have lost news coverage as the newspaper industry continues on its downward spiral, according to a study by the University of North Carolina’s School of Media and Journalism released Monday. “The whole news food chain starts with daily newspapers,” Seattle Times reporter Mike Rosenberg wrote on Twitter Tuesday in response to the study. Roughly 20 percent of the country’s metro and community newspapers have stopped their presses or merged with other newspapers since 2004, according to Poynter. That’s a decrease from approximately 9,000 newspapers to a little more than 7,000. Penelope Muse Abernathy directed the…

Pages Purged by Facebook Were on Blacklist Promoted by Washington Post

Media outlets removed by Facebook on Thursday, in a massive purge of 800 accounts and pages, had previously been targeted in a blacklist of oppositional sites promoted by the Washington Post in November 2016. The organizations censored by Facebook include The Anti-Media, with 2.1 million followers, The Free Thought Project, with 3.1 million followers, and Counter Current News, with 500,000 followers. All three of these groups had been on the blacklist. In November 2016, the Washington Post published a puff-piece on a shadowy and up to then largely unknown organization called PropOrNot, which had compiled a list of organizations it…

The Trenches is not going anywhere.     Last night we were awoken from our sleep by a pounding on the door.  Having children away from home, the worst thoughts always come to mind.  But it was not a cop to tell us our children were hurt or dead, it was a process server who served us with this lawsuit: COMPLAINT FOR DAMAGES AND INJUNCTIVE RELIEF You will see myself and ten other unknowns named as defendants, which…

Internet Censorship Just Took An Unprecedented Leap Forward, And Hardly Anyone Noticed

While most indie media was focused on debating the way people talk about Kanye West and the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, an unprecedented escalation in internet censorship took place which threatens everything we all care about. It received frighteningly little attention. After a massive purge of hundreds of politically oriented pages and personal accounts for “inauthentic behavior”, Facebook rightly received a fair amount of criticism for the nebulous and hotly disputed basis for that action. What received relatively little attention was the far more ominous step which was taken next: within hours of being purged from Facebook, multiple…

CNN’s $100 Million Problem: Collecting Payment for People Watching on Airplanes

In a lawsuit shrouded in secrecy, CNN’s parent company and Dish Network are fighting over contractual obligations. Sometime in the next week, CNN’s parent company Turner will be filing court papers providing evidence for how it has allegedly been cheated by Dish Network out of license payments for the cable news network. The case has remained under the radar for more than a year since it was initially filed under seal. Dish has acknowledged what’s happening very broadly in securities filings, yet thanks in large part to television executives treating their contractual terms like the secret ingredients for a more…

Why the Coordinated Alternative Media Purge Should TERRIFY Everyone: Soon Those Who Hate Freedom Will Have Unquestioned Access to the Minds of 2 Billion People

Yesterday, the alternative media purge was boldly advanced in a coordinated effort to silence people who dissent from establishment views. It’s just one more step toward a monopoly on information by those who hate freedom. At this rate, they’ll soon have unquestioned access to the minds of more than 2 billion people. And this should terrify everyone who wants to be free to question the status quo and to seek a wide range of information. Hundreds of alternative media site administrators logged onto Facebook to discover that their accounts had been removed. Soon after, many of these sites and their…
