Controlled Media watch

  • Congress readies a bizarre resolution against WikiLeaks.

    It is the sense of Congress that WikiLeaks and the senior leadership of WikiLeaks resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such a service by the United States.

    “Resemble”? The resolution is saying that if you *look like* anything Congress doesn’t appreciate, they can strip your First Amendment protections and take the U.S. to war with you.

    WikiLeaks, remember, is non-profit journalist service. They publish leaks. The traditional, First Amendment approach is that *the leaker* commits a crime and can be punished, but *the journalist or publisher* does not. Someone wants an exception, it seems, for super-effective journalists whom the government can’t control.

    More from Julian Assange, here.

  • CNN endorses the undercover journalism of Project Veritas. Indirectly.

    A journalist snowed Breitbart employees by pretending to be someone they would trust. The journalist gave the story to CNN, who gladly reported it. Very embarrassing. But that is undercover “sting” journalism, like what James O’Keefe and Project Veritas do, and CNN and many lefties fulminate indignantly about them. Can you spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-t-e-s? 🙂

  • Google and Apple ban Gab (a Twitter competitor), censoring what you can do with your own phone.

    “Whatever is permissible under the First Amendment is what Gab allows onto its site.”

    …Gab’s Android app was available through Google’s app store until yesterday, when Google banned it, citing violations of its hate-speech policy

    While Android users can install unapproved apps, it’s a cumbersome process…

    It’s difficult to credit Gab as a white-supremacist site when its cofounder is a Turkish Kurd and Muslim…who says “I’ve never supported Trump for a minute in my entire life”…

    Google is being plain evil. They’re saying *you can’t use a non-Google app to say anything to anybody that Google would not like*. What’s next, Google censoring your private emails? Remember, email is a phone app.

  • Breitbart has more on Google’s other steps to punish conservative speech.

Flashback: When Facebook ex-employees admitted that Facebook routinely censors conservative news from their “Trending” section. Even if it was really trending.

  1. … resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such a service by the United States.

    Not knowing what constitutes a non-state “hostile” intelligence service, I wonder if Facebook, PayPal, Google, Apple, Twitter and others fit that definition.

  3. who gets to decide what “hate speech” is?

  4. Tell me if that makes sense. Maybe it won’t, at all. Maybe you’ll find it condescending, and I won’t blame anyone — but we believe in free speech here, and anyone can speak their own truth, if only to get corrected when they’re wrong.

    Origin: Jesus time.

    Old Europe, say, France, with Hugues Capet crowning, 987 AD — present:

    20 year old; enjoyed a lot of freedom and true enlightenment (Middle Ages, Renaissance, industrial revolution, modern times) — got many mild and harsher spankings, keeps doing very foolish things, in proportion to her young adult age and capacity to mess things up.

    South America, Christopher Columbus, 1492 — present:

    A 10 year old, enjoyed a little freedom, got a few mild and a few harsh spankings, seemingly calling for more of harsh spankings after more of more of foolish things.

    USA, 1776 — present:

    A 5 year old, enjoyed an awful lot of freedom, got only a mild spanking (1861) …

    … has just discovered (late 1960s) the box of matches — playing with it since the mid 90s, brazzenly doing it since 2008.

    It seems to make sense to at least dear wife (from Colombia) and a couple other Cuban or Venezuelan immigrants.

  6. Prove us wrong, America — don’t be that stupid 5 year old brat.

    Don’t fall for your deranged left’s taunting you to be stupider than they are, already —

    Never punch them first.

    Always mock them last.

  7. ciiting violations of its hate-speech policy

    A great crux of the matter-point of James Damore by Milo, imho, is when the latter brilliantly pointed out what I’ve been suspecting for a while:

    once hyper innovative and cutting edge enterprises like Google have allowed themselves to be eaten alive from the inside by a whole class of modern parasites — SJW leaning management — unbashedly feasting on the rest of their doers, engineers and other techs vastly of libertarian or classical liberal leaning, if not hard working disciplined conservative —

    and the same upper management SJW morons expect to keep the competitive advantage in what is maybe the most violently, intrinsivally competitive market — technology — where Goliaths habe never secured their positions from fierce Davids more than a decade or so in a row.

    Forget about the hazards of going Full Retard.

    Never, ever go Full #Goolag. I mean… Full “Google”.

  11. Funny how Wikileaks wasn’t a problem until they started embarrassing Democrats.

    Wouldn’t it blow your mind if it turned out the Awans were the ones leaking to Wikileaks the whole time?

  13. Reminds my of the old movie, “The President’s Analyst “. The finally-revealed villain was The Phone Company…and their insidious plot for wireless thought-control via implanted communication nodes in the brain, coordinated by a self aware computer. Sound familiar??…

    This is a very likely possibility.

  16. Love these rounds ups with links to info on the subject of the post. It’s very helpful to have this info when trying to educate others. Here are a couple more Google gems that just hit the news:

  17. Kurt Schichter makes an (IMHO convincing) argument for anti-trust proceedings and draconian regulation of Silicon Valley.

    Given that the internet is a force multiplier, Google, et al, are far more dangerous than 1970s-1980s Ma Bell, IBM, Kodak, or Microsoft ever dreamed of in their darkest hours.

    We have here the problem of bigness – William O. Douglas.
