Google Discriminates Against Conservatives and Climate Skeptics

We must understand how Google does it, why it is wrong and how it hurts America

By David Wojick – Re-Blogged From WUWT

Several months ago, Google quietly released a 32-page white paper, “How Google Fights Disinformation.” That sound good. The problem is that Google not only controls a whopping 92.2% of all online searches. It is a decidedly left-wing outfit, which views things like skepticism of climate alarmism, and conservative views generally, as “disinformation.” The white paper explains how Google’s search and news algorithms operate, to suppress what Google considers disinformation and wants to keep out of educational and public discussions.

The algorithms clearly favor liberal content when displaying search results. Generally speaking, they rank and present search results based on the use of so-called “authoritative sources.” The problem is, these sources are mostly “mainstream” media, which are almost entirely liberal.

Empiricism and Dogma: Why Left and Right Can’t Agree on Climate Change
written by Patrick T. Brown

As a climate scientist, I often hear puzzled complaints about the political polarization of the public discussion about anthropogenic global warming. If it is an empirical and scientific matter, such people ask, then why is opinion so firmly divided along political lines? Since it tends to be the political Right that opposes policies designed to address and mitigate global warming, responsibility for this partisanship is often placed solely on the ideological stubbornness of conservatives.

Re-Blogged From Mommy Underground

It’s a sad, but true, fact that liberal Hollywood likes to spread the propaganda of its progressive allies.

Nowhere is this more evident than in the censorship of conservative speech and films that promote traditional values.

But one current movie has defied the odds and is showing Hollywood that we won’t be silenced.

The movie, Unplanned, is based on the true story of pro-life warrior Abby Johnson.

Green New Deal-Lite

By James Taylor – Re-Blogged From WUWT

When Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) formally introduced a congressional resolution for a “Green New Deal,” Republicans were handed a powerful, unexpected political gift. Leave it to weak-minded congressional Republicans to find a way to screw it up.

The Green New Deal would re-make the United States via a “new national, social, industrial, and economic mobilization on a scale not seen since World War II and the New Deal.” Those aren’t just empty words. The free-market American Action Forum conducted an economic analysis of the Green New Deal and found it would cost as much as $94 trillion, or approximately $780,000 per U.S. household. The green-energy components alone would cost as much as $12.3 trillion.

Professor Calls Out College Administrators for Overwhelming Liberal Bias

Re-Blogged From Total Conservative

You don’t really expect to see a college professor calling out college administrators for their liberal bias, and you really don’t expect to see them do it in the pages of The New York Times, but hey, the Gray Lady throws us a bone every now and then. On Tuesday, Professor Samuel J. Abrams of Sarah Lawrence College argued that while there was no question that professors and academics tended to be on the more liberal side of the spectrum, the imbalance was nothing compared to school administrators, who are practically walking in lockstep towards a more “progressive” future.
