NYTimes Falls For Trump’s Latest Conspiracy Theory

Death of the Media

Comrade Faceberg

NYTimes breathlessly tells us:

“The post went up quietly on Facebook’s internal message board last week. Titled ‘We Have a Problem With Political Diversity,’ it quickly took off inside the social network. ‘We are a political monoculture that’s intolerant of different views,’ Brian Amerige, a senior Facebook engineer, wrote in the post, which was obtained by The New York Times.

“‘We claim to welcome all perspectives, but are quick to attack — often in mobs — anyone who presents a view that appears to be in opposition to left-leaning ideology.’ Since the post went up, more than 100 Facebook employees have joined Mr. Amerige to form an online group called FB’ers for Political Diversity.”

So, 100 Conservative activists inside of Facebook (which has 25,105 employees, according to the Google) feel put upon and say that the culture at Facebook is not to their liking, but to conclude that therefore Facebook is serving anti-Conservative anything to its users is really a fault of logic. Facebook wants you to stay on their website so you will be bombarded with ads so that they make buckets of Ameros. Yes, they even want Possum Hollar to stay there to buy dick pills. Go Figure.

Remember: You are the product that they sell.

And of course, yesterday Comrade Trump picked a fight with an algorithm, which is pretty stupid on the face of it. Google (and Faceberg, too) is in the bidness of selling your information to advertisers so that advertisers will buy ads on their platforms. These big tech companies already know EVERYTHING about you, they don’t care what your political leanings are, except to target what ads you see (dick pills).

So well done, NYTimes! You’ve played again right into Trump’s latest conspiracy theory and amplified it.

    Mr. Grain, I’m about to throw a complete shit fit because every time I use your search function for RWW, I get a bunch of fake news from Right Wing World. There must be something WRONG with your algorithms and just because your site is free and doesn’t sell anybody anything about me, I am going to demand that you do something about this right away to soothe my hurt feelings and give me what I want! Yes, this is a threat. Good day to you, sir. Harrumph.

    So off I went to look for Trump’s “FAKE NEWS! – Google’s fault!” tweets, prepared to look for the edit (the tweets showed up twice, something that happens when he edits a tweet) And found out that Tucker Carlson works at DOJ, or maybe runs it, I don’t know –

    Donnie T is such an idiot. He even makes Bill O look … less stupid.
