    In today’s public policy arena, winning ideas rarely are decided by sound logic, accurate facts, or even by the most votes. Instead, content filters and algorithms, meticulously engineered by social media companies like Facebook and Twitter, intentionally steer public debate in the direction of their owners’ personal politics; and, not coincidentally, toward the politics of their liberal friends in Washington and Sacramento.For starters, consider Facebook – the Big Daddy of social media. There have been numerous reports of Facebook’s algorithm taking down popular pages of pro-gun organizations. But even this example of the “new censorship” pales when viewed in the...

    Donald Trump DONALD TRUMP on Monday escalated his feud with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” by attacking co-host Mika Brzezinski’s intelligence. "Some day, when things calm down, I'll tell the real story of @JoeNBC and his very insecure long-time girlfriend, @morningmika. Two clowns!" Trump implied a romantic relationship between Brzezinski and fellow co-host Joe Scarborough in tweets marking the latest shots fired in the GOP White House nominee's war on the media. The comments came the same morning Scarborough and Brzezinski mocked a recent speech from Trump in Fredericksburg, Va., which they found rambling. "He belted like, honestly ... like he's had...

It started on Tuesday when Prof. Tribe sent out this Tweet: (TWEET-AT-LINK) What followed was a rather lengthy back and forth on Twitter, with some encouraging Tribe to reveal the notes and others accusing him of breaking various legal ethical rules governing the attorney client relationship. Attorney Michael Krauss penned a strong rebuke of Tribe’s conduct in article in Forbes, calling it “extremely disappointing.” Krauss concluded that not only would the notes be confidential, but the mere fact that...

    The internet is abuzz this week with new revelations about the towering edifice of hypocrisy and left-wing censorship being built by the controllers of Twitter. Exactly four weeks ago, Twitter permanently banned gay conservative commentator and humorist Milo Yiannopoulos from the platform, claiming that he incited abuse of comic actress Leslie Jones after, get this, she reacted harshly to his critical review of her performance in the new “Ghostbusters” film. The exchange was fairly innocuous, with Jones acting peeved and Milo displaying the rapier wit of a sharp stand-up comedian, and the final straw came when Jones blocked him, and...

Assuming that is a correct prediction, what does that mean for the future of the Trump-Clinton presidential race. All of these stats are as of Aug. 4th, 2016.

With his total holdings increased to 5%, his stake in the company has made him the second most powerful person at Twitter. Alwaleed's Saudi Kingdom was responsible for the spread of Wahhabism across the Middle East, which is the same dangerous version of Islamic ideology the Islamic State subscribes to. Even though Saudi Arabia has played a pivotal role in the fight against ISIS, forces inside the country have directly and indirectly sponsored global...

Finally, the attention at the Democratic convention and in the news media will be on her, her message, and not just endorsements and speeches from powerful allies like Mike Bloomberg and President Barack Obama. Good luck with that. We already know who's going to dominate the headlines tomorrow morning in the end. And he happens...

Until the moment he was picked by Hillary, Kaine was strongly for the TPP. And then today he suddenly saw the light and, hallelujah, he now proclaims to "oppose" the TPP. I put "oppose" in quotes because he now opposes it as much as Hillary pretends to oppose it. However, Huffington Post reporter Michael McAuliff relayed Kaine's new found TPP opposition without the slightest...

As soon as Wikileaks posted the emails, Twitter began trending with #DNCLeaks. It was the top trending hashtag. But suddenly it has disappeared.

    When Twitter banned Milo Yiannopoulos, a blogger for the conservative news website Breitbart.com who used the Twitter handle Nero, Yiannopoulos reacted with characteristic modesty. He told The New York Times the ban launched "the beginning of the end for Twitter." Oddly, Yiannopouolos may be right. In February, the social media platform announced its "Trust and Safety Committee." With Orwellian overtones, CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted, "Twitter stands for freedom of expression, speaking truth to power, and empowering dialogue. That starts with safety." The San Francisco startup invites all comers to post their thoughts by name or anonymously. The more outrageous the...
