These companies (Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc...) need to have their protections removed, and be declared publishers.

Props to the New York Post, which was willing to call out other media organizations who were willfully misleading about yet another topic.

Here’s what actually happened...

Yeah, the "private companies" defense tossed out there by those who pretend they're being conservative on the issue is as big a load of bullshit as the left's claim that such actions by the companies aren't infringing upon free speech.

It shouldn't surprise anyone that there are so many misinformed people in our midst. Crazy but not unusual enough.

Speaking of willfully misleading (and lying), here's Jim Acosta

And credit to Steven Crowder for slapping him down.

Direct quote from transcript: "I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists. They should be condemned totally."

And, yet, still people don't change. For instance, here's the NYT getting caught with this cartoon



and only taking it down after an uproar.

https://legalinsurrection.com/2019/0...nse-criticism/

Will it change more than, say 1-2 minds about that rag, or about the left?

Not bloody likely. It's more likely that not one mind will be changed, and that not one vote will be switched.

One or two /r/neoliberal posters pitched a shitfit about the cartoon which should supposedly signal it's actually something "offensive", but I don't really see the antisemitic dogwhistle (pun intended) in it.

Isikoff, the piece of shit Democrat puppet who got the ball rolling on media pushing the Steele dossier, is now trying to use a false apology to both bolster his almost non-existent credibility and spin things into an attack on Republicans.

But notice how he spins it into an attack on the Republicans

Even his faux apology is nothing more than a leftist shot at the Republicans, in the end.

This is about the WaPo fact checker. Leaving out the argument about percentages, because there's no resolution to be found there, just scroll down and note the examples cited at the bottom.

Remember, that's supposed to be someone who's just checking the claims and verifying/disputing their accuracy, and not offering his own spin on the issues.

How pathetic is WaPo? Well, it's pathetic enough that it tried to slide Farrakhan over to the "far right" in their version of the Facebook banning story, in order to perpetuate the narrative.
