YouTube censored this site for accuracy, yet new news today underscores that they continue to hype fake news.
Keep clogging my inbox with the good fight here Matt!
Fmr. CIA Director John Brennan on WaPo's YouTube: "[The Hunter Biden laptop story] does bare all the hallmarks of Russian disinformation". (5:30, Oct. 2020) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gig1B8YWk14
YouTube's not taking that disinfo down either. Odd!
Give ‘‘em hell, Matt. I’m as invested in this crusade as you are at this point
Please keep me informed. I won’t speak for the rest of subscribers. There is a public interest in speaking truth to the algorithms of power.
Also, as an attorney, I keep following along looking for the way to haul the BigTech nonsense to the courthouse.
Glad you’re not taking this lying down. Let us subscribers know if there’s anything we can do to amplify the embarrassment!
To believe these conspiracy theories, one must simultaneously believe that "Russia" has powers of persuasion bordering on psychic mind control, not to mention better insight into American elections and messaging than the best statisticians and campaign consultants that money can buy, and at the same time, one must also believe that Russia apparently has no clue how to use any of these superpowers.
Fortunately for Muh Freedom, the conspiracy theorists themselves are totally immune to Russian Mind Control antics. Just ask them.
Of course, if anyone actually believed that "Russia" could do even half of what is routinely attributed to her, every advertiser in the land would be begging Russia to run their next ad campaign, every MBA student with a marketing concentration would be studying in Moscow or St.P.. Anything else would be like bringing a knife to a gunfight.
The monopoly that Google and YouTube enjoys is much different than monopolies of old—think Andrew Carnegie’s Steel Company (now U.S. Steel) or John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company. The product over which Google has a monopoly is us: Our attention, our personal information, our content—the three key ingredients for human manipulation in the 21st century.
A central responsibility of an information intermediary is, or ought to be, refraining from using data in ways designed to further the political goals of the intermediary. When Google’s employees or algorithms block our access to information about a news story, business, or politician, reputations can be ruined, businesses can crumble, and opinions and votes can shift. Moreover, since its inception and in contrast to other companies, the tech giant has maintained incestuous relationships with Democratic administrations.
Regardless of what one thinks about Orange Man Bad, if "THEY" can lie about this kind of stuff "THEY" can lie about anything or make stuff up about ANYBODY. This is despicable and dangerous. Kudos Matt and team for setting the record straight.
The NYT, et al, really ought to have their noses rubbed in this - just like a puppy being housebroken.
As a subscriber, I would also prefer you continue to clog my email. I don't tend to check the site because I expect email notifications of new posts and would prefer to continue to do so.
I'm using Duckduckgo now for my searches and am shocked how much easier it is to find content on unwoke topics. Much more FTX content.
Also, trying to use Rumble more, but Youtube owns so much more content, it'll be tough to cut the ties altogether.
I love hearing all the rants (I wrote one myself today!) -- but when are you going to actually get off YouTube?
The most powerful thing you can do is withdraw your consent.
"...major news media...actively embraced disinformation, in the form of a group letter...saying the laptop story (they referred to a “laptop op”) had the “classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
"the classic earmarks" LOL! Paging Maxwell Smart!
"All the aforementioned news agencies fell for this..."
No one "fell for this" unless you also think that if you commit a crime and I agree to provide an alibi, you are "falling for" it. They didn't "fall for it" so much as create and embrace it.
"Russian disinformation" is the new "I see the hand of Satan!" for our corporate Pravda class, who really just needed a plausible fig leaf to cover their strategy of making sure they did whatever was necessary to help Biden beat Trump.
Since we're bringing back old chestnuts of political hysteria, how bout we resurrect George W's "Axis of Evil" and apply it to the Big Tech/Big Media/Democratic Party axis, who hate America and Americans as much as an ayatollah ever did, and who are engaged in a desperate drive to gain and maintain full control over American discourse (aka "save democracy" LOL), our rights or freedoms be damned.
I fully support calling out Google/YouTube/FB/the MSM's lies and bullshit propaganda, for as long as it takes. Fuck the oligarchs, fuck the deep state ghouls, and fuck their bootlicking media handmaidens - may they all rot in Hell.
Are there any ways for us viewers at home to boost the signal on these articles? Anywhere we could be sharing?
Bravo. U nailed it again. We love you Matt!
Go get 'em. Also, coming from a periodically vocal critic, I think emails shouldn't really bother your subs.
