    It’s beginning to look as if companies headed by leftists will never figure out that most people want a product, not a political viewpoint. When it comes to employee expenses, businesses struggle with categorizing the receipts that flow in and dispensing reimbursements. Expensify is a popular software company that automates many of those tasks for its 10 million clients. Up until about five minutes ago, it was a profitable company that had attracted over $38 million in funding. However, David Barrett, the Founder, CEO, and Director couldn’t keep his Democrat political opinions to himself. As a result, the company instantly...

    NBC News was called out late Sunday over a pair of tweets it sent about an hour apart that critics said showed bias when reporting on President Trump rallies and the protests that have emerged in the wake of George Floyd’s death in police custody. NBC News first tweeted a link to a protest in Brooklyn and wrote, “Rally for Black trans lives draws packed crowd to Brooklyn Museum plaza.” About an hour later, the news outlet tweeted out another story, “President Trump plans to rally his supporters next Saturday for the first time since most of the country was...

    In a letter appearing online Thursday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan write that President Trump’s “divisive and incendiary rhetoric” has left them “deeply shaken and disgusted” in a volatile time that they say requires “unity” in the U.S. Writing under the letterhead of their Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, which focuses on technology solutions to social problems, the couple were responding to last week’s call by more than 270 scientists that Facebook address what the scientists described as “misinformation” appearing on social media. A copy of the Chan-Zuckerberg letter was posted on Twitter by Recode journalist Teddy Schleifer.
  • REVEALED: 5,500 Facebook employees complained about Mark Zuckerberg's decision not to take down Trump's 'looting and shooting' posts as a THIRD employee resigns in protest

    Thousands of Facebook workers demanded that their boss, CEO Mark Zuckerberg, flag President Trump’s controversial post about ‘looting and shooting’ as a third employee has resigned in protest of the company’s hands-off policy. Internal documents leaked to The Washington Post revealed that most of the 5,500 Facebook employees who voted in a poll wanted Zuckerberg to change the company’s policy allowing politicians virtually unfettered free speech. ‘Fact checking and removal of hate speech shouldn’t be exempt for politicians,’ the Facebook employees wrote. This demand was raised before Zuckerberg when the boss held a virtual town hall this week.
  • Twitter to prioritize posts 'with highest potential for harm' for censorship

    Twitter said Wednesday it will not tackle all the misinformation on its platform but will instead focus on posts with the “highest potential for harm” as it works to curb false or misleading information from spreading. The social media giant said it is responding to a survey from last year in which respondents said that “Twitter shouldn’t determine the truthfulness of Tweets” and “Twitter should provide context to help people make up their own minds in cases where the substance of a Tweet is disputed.” “Hence, our focus is on providing context, not fact-checking,” the company said. “We are NOT...
  • Mark Zuckerberg says he might add labels to posts that incite violence following pressure from staff and civil rights leaders - less than a week after he criticized Twitter for doing the same thing

    Mark Zuckerberg is reportedly considering adding warning labels to Facebook posts penned by government leaders if they incite violence - less than a week after he criticized Twitter for doing the exact same thing. Vox obtained access to a video conference call between Zuckerberg and several of his Facebook employees Tuesday, during which he revealed he was toying with the idea. According to the publication, Zuckerberg also predicted that the United States could be entering a 'prolonged period of civil unrest', meaning that the company may 'alter its policies on what kind of announcements government leaders can make about state...

    OAKLAND, Calif. — Dozens of Facebook employees, in rare public criticism on Monday of their own company, protested executives’ decision not to do anything about inflammatory posts that President Trump had placed on the giant social media platform over the last week. The employees, who took the day off by logging into Facebook’s systems and requesting time off to support protesters across the country, also added an automated message to their emails saying that they were out of the office in a show of protest. The group is one of many clusters of employees attempting to push back on executives....

     Twitter unfairly deletes a user who Tweets content the president supports. Here's an example in which Trump retweets a user's account for included "the storm" terminology Trump used in 2017 when he took office, and a hashtag #WWG1WGA. Twitter responds by banning the user's acount. A Twitter user fights back against censorship and retweets the same content below:  But, Twitter supports mischaracterizations of Trump's tweets. On Twitter, here's a clip of an MSNBC reporter suggesting Trump's retweet (shown above) is unfairly "elevating" Q Anon while at the same time "taking on" Antifa, both of which she describes as "extremist...

Meanwhile we are supposed to be placated by the expectation that Trump is actually going to accomplish something. It’s the same shell game that has me pulling my hair out. BNJ would argue the case. Napolitano, Levin etc won’t agree for sure, but here goes:

    The White House on Friday pushed back against Twitter after the social media giant censored a tweet by President Trump threatening action against rioters in Minneapolis -- with Trump accusing the company of double standards, as his team moved to get around Twitter's restrictions. “Twitter is doing nothing about all of the lies & propaganda being put out by China or the Radical Left Democrat Party. They have targeted Republicans, Conservatives & the President of the United States. Section 230 should be revoked by Congress. Until then, it will be regulated!” Trump tweeted. On Friday the morning, White House’s official...

    SENATOR Ted Cruz is calling for a criminal investigation into Twitter for potentially "violating US sanctions against Iran." Cruz asked for the investigation in a letter to the Justice and Treasury departments on Friday. In February, Cruz wrote a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to ask him to stop providing social media services to Supreme Leader of Iran Ali Khamenei and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. Now, the senator is calling on Attorney General William Barr and Secretary Steve Mnuchin to "take action." In Friday's letter, Cruz wrote: "I believe that the primary goal of (the International Emergency Economic...

    The White House dared Twitter to slap a warning label on President Trump's tweet about the protests in Minneapolis, Minnesota, over the death of George Floyd a second time. The social media company didn't blink. Twitter said the White House account "violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence" after it repeated a tweet from the president that called the protesters "THUGS" and implied they could be shot. Twitter hid the White House's tweet after Trump first posted the tweet on his personal account early Friday morning and Twitter placed a warning label on it. "We have placed a public interest...

    YouTube removed and then reinstated an episode of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani's podcast about former Vice President Joe Biden's relationship with China. A spokesperson for the platform told the Washington Examiner on Thursday that the video, which was posted on April 24 and deleted on May 12, was removed accidentally and has been reposted. "Our team is glad the mistake was rectified," Giuliani's spokesperson told the Washington Examiner. Giuliani's team was informed early in the morning on May 12 that "video has been removed from YouTube" because it "was flagged to us for review," and upon that review, they "determined...

    Twitter said Friday morning that a tweet from President Trump in which he threatened shooting in response to civil unrest in Minneapolis violated the company's rules. The company said it was leaving the tweet up in the public interest. Why it matters: The move exacerbates tensions between Twitter and Trump over the company's authority to label or limit his speech and, conversely, the president's authority to dictate rules for a private company.

    This piece will not provide a deep historical background of the Trump-Twitter dispute. We know what is going on. After years of ignoring propaganda, misinformation, threats, and slander from “bad actors” such as China, Iran, evil corporations, leftist Jew-haters, Michael Avenatti, Hillary Clinton, the Covington accusers, and all the many Democrat-aligned perpetrators of the Russia Collusion Hoax, Twitter has finally made a move, five months before our Presidential Election, to attempt to humiliate Mr. Trump and challenge him on his facts, specifically on a potentially life-or-death matter of electoral survival for the Democrat Party. A desperate gamble chiefly attributable to...

    When the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on social media censorship late last month, liberal Democratic congressman Ted Lieu transformed into a hardcore libertarian. “This is a stupid and ridiculous hearing,” he said, because “the First Amendment applies to the government, not private companies.” He added that just as the government cannot tell Fox News what content to air, “we can’t tell Facebook what content to filter,” because that would be unconstitutional. Lieu is incorrect. While the First Amendment generally does not apply to private companies, the Supreme Court has held it “does not disable the government from taking...

    Even Trump supporters have wondered about Trump’s tweets implying that MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough had something to do with a young intern’s death in his office when he was still a Florida congressman. It’s true that Scarborough and his co-host and wife Mika Brzezinksi have spent three years accusing Trump of treasonous collusion with the Russians, but Trump’s venom still seemed strange. I, however, don’t think it was strange at all. Trump is one of the most calculating, rational people ever to occupy the White House. He’s been faced with a serious problem, which is the fact that the immensely powerful...
