Trump: Still Too Hot to Handle

Featured image President Trump is running this ad in Georgia, reportedly targeted to specific geographies within that state. Its message is powerful and, if you are a Democrat, nuclear: Trump’s Super PAC is running this ad in rural Georgia counties targeting Black men. — Alex Thompson (@AlexThomp) May 3, 2024 Google reportedly censored the ad. Instead of the ad playing, there was a notice that it was “removed for a policy »

More Stories of Censorship

Featured image “When Front Page Magazine applied to join Google’s AdSense advertising program we were turned down,” notes Daniel Greenfield of the David Horowitz Freedom Center. “Since Google, like other Big Tech monopolies, has censored and deplatformed us in the past, we weren’t too shocked. But this time, Google told us why we had been banned.” The ban was due to this writer’s “Remember the San Bernardino Fourteen,” from December 3, 2021. »

Who Owns Science?

Featured image Science is a method that can, in principle, be practiced by anyone. So no one can “own” it. But don’t tell that to the United Nations and the World Economic Forum. This is chilling: Melissa Fleming, Under-Secretary for Global Communications at the United Nations at [World Economic Forum] ‘Disinformation’ event: “We partnered with Google,” said Fleming, adding, “for example, if you Google ‘climate change,’ you will, at the top of »

Shareholders Want Answers From Tech Platforms

Featured image Shareholders in Alphabet, the parent of Google and YouTube, have introduced a resolution calling for disclosure of any collusion between Alphabet’s companies and the Biden administration in suppressing information that is critical of administration policies: The National Legal and Policy Center, an ethics watchdog group that holds a voting stake in Google and YouTube’s parent corporation Alphabet, submitted the shareholder proposal to the company this week, following a string of »

Google Makes War on Climate Science

Featured image The most reliable record we have of the Earth’s temperature is the satellite data maintained by Roy Spencer and John Christy at the University of Alabama Huntsville. The satellite data go back to 1979. Dr. Spencer has a web site that has come under attack by Google: has been demonetized by Google for “unreliable and harmful claims”. This means I can no longer generate revenue to support the website »

How to Stop Big Tech Censorship (Cont.)

Featured image One of the major issues of our time is the Left’s attempt to ban conservative speech where it now matters most: on social media platforms. The Left monopolizes social media outlets, and if an upstart competitor rears its head–Parler, say–it is crushed by an obviously-illegal combination or conspiracy in restraint of trade. (See Section 1 of the Sherman Act.) Good luck litigating that for the next ten years while you »

Big Tech On Trial

Featured image CEOs of Twitter, Facebook and Google testified today before the Senate Commerce Committee on Big Tech censorship, and its naked support of the Democratic Party. The hearing lasted for nearly four hours. This exchange between Ted Cruz and the apparently homeless Jack Dorsey has been the most discussed moment in the hearing: We may add further clips as they come to our attention. Basically, the Silicon Valley giants are sitting »

DOJ Sues Google [with comment by Paul]

Featured image This morning the Department of Justice, joined by 11 states, filed an antitrust suit against Google in federal court in the District of Columbia.

YouTube Throws In the Towel

Featured image I related here the fact that YouTube deleted the livestream of our program today with Heather Mac Donald, in which she demolished the anti-police myths propagated by the Marxist Black Lives Matter and other leftist elements. It was too much for YouTube to take, apparently. I appealed YouTube’s deletion of the video, and it didn’t take long for cooler heads to prevail. A little while ago, we got this email »

The Truth About Policing and Race Is Too Hot for YouTube

Featured image Earlier today, Center of the American Experiment hosted a live-streamed presentation by Heather Mac Donald titled “The Truth About Crime, Race and Policing.” Heather’s talk, which lasted for around 40 minutes, was fact-filled. It delivered a knockout punch to the Black Lives Matter “systemic police racism” narrative, which can’t stand up to empirical analysis. Thousands of people watched the livestream on an event page, on YouTube and on Facebook. We »

Big Tech Makes War on the Right

Featured image That is an evergreen headline. Here are a couple of instances from today’s news. First, Facebook has pulled Trump campaign ads under its “organized hate” policy. Sounds serious, right? No: the Trump ads were anti-Antifa, and, since Antifa is an organized hate group, you might think Facebook would approve of them. Just kidding. Still, what was the problem? The Trump campaign ads included a red inverted triangle. A Trump campaign »

Google, Censor of the World?

Featured image The debate over the role of the tech giants and how they influence public speech is ongoing, and a huge subject. This is a First Amendment frontier: the tech companies (Google, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, Apple) are not arms of the government, but they largely control the public square. It is somewhat as though, in the 18th Century, manufacturers of printing presses had dictated that flyers could only be printed on »

Prager U vs. YouTube [Updated]

Featured image Prager University produces a wide variety of educational videos that have become very popular, especially with young people. They are some of the highest quality materials available on the internet. As with most other video producers, Prager U’s most important outlet is YouTube, which is owned by Google and is the platform on which 90 percent or more of videos are watched, worldwide. For several years, YouTube has suppressed Prager »

Tulsi Sues Google

Featured image Yesterday, presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard’s campaign sued Google, alleging that the company wrongly suspended the campaign’s Google Ads account during the critical hours following the first Democratic debate. The Complaint is venued in federal court in central California. Its allegations are explosive. Gabbard accuses Google of trying to sabotage her presidential campaign because she, like Elizabeth Warren, has argued in favor of reining in the tech monopolies, including Google. Here »

Ted Cruz Wants to Know

Featured image I wrote here about the explosive Project Veritas report on Google’s left-wing bias, which featured testimony from a whistleblower and surreptitious video of a Google executive, along with some company documents. There was a follow-up, which I wrote about here, involving a Google “transparency and ethics” group that characterized Dennis Prager, Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro as “Nazis.” Yesterday the Senate Commerce Committee held a hearing on tech companies’ use »

Google vs. Conservatives, Continued

Featured image Project Veritas has released an email it says it received from a Google whistleblower, following up on the video that we wrote about yesterday. On its face, the email appears to be part of a discussion among members of Google’s “transparency and ethics” group. It describes Prager University, Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro as “Nazis” and addresses the question how their influence can be reduced. Click to enlarge: As the »

A Smoking Gun Against Google?

Featured image Project Veritas’s latest project is exposing the left-wing bias that pervades “big tech.” That such bias exists is no surprise, but documenting it–and, more important, its effects–is something else. Yesterday Veritas released a new video, about 25 minutes long, on Google. It consists of two parts: an interview with an unidentified Google employee whose voice is altered so that he sounds like Darth Vader, and footage secretly taped of a »
