Mainstream Media: Is the Information ‘Fix’ Already In? [VIDEO]
How many information outlets do you trust, not only to give you accurate information, but all the information. It's generally accepted that the "mainstream media" news outlets, i.e., NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN slant stories to the political left, and Fox to the right. But what about Google, Facebook and Twitter? 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty discuss recent evidence that leftist politics, even censorship, have invaded the world's most often used search engine and most popular social media sites.
Astonishingly, Google has even - in internal memos and discussions - begun to refer to itself as "The Good Censor." From breitbart.com:
"An internal company briefing produced by Google and leaked exclusively to Breitbart News argues that due to a variety of factors, including the election of President Trump, the “American tradition” of free speech on the internet is no longer viable.
Despite leaked video footage showing top executives declaring their intention to ensure that the rise of Trump and the populist movement is just a "blip in history." Google has repeatedly denied that the political bias of its employees filter into its products.
But the 85-page briefing, titled “The Good Censor,” admits that Google and other tech platforms now “control the majority of online conversations” and have undertaken a 'shift towards censorship' in response to unwelcome political events around the world."
