GOOGLE ALGORITHM NEEDS RE-PURPOSING

Google-dbe

What has Google done to me lately…

Lofty words from Google’s whitepaper, “How Google Fights Disinformation….”

The open Internet has enabled people to create, connect, and distribute information like never before. It has exposed us to perspectives and experiences that were previously out-of-reach. It has enabled increased access to knowledge for everyone.

Google continues to believe that the Internet is a boon to society – contributing to global education, healthcare, research, and economic development by enabling citizens to become more knowledgeable and involved through access to information at an unprecedented scale.

However, like other communication channels, the open Internet is vulnerable to the organized propagation of false or misleading information. Over the past several years, concerns that we have entered a “post-truth” era have become a controversial subject of political and academic debate.

These concerns directly affect Google and our mission – to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. When our services are used to propagate deceptive or misleading information, our mission is undermined.

How companies like Google address these concerns has an impact on society and on the trust users place in our services. We take this responsibility very seriously and believe it begins with providing transparency into our policies, inviting feedback, enabling users, and collaborating with policymakers, civil society, and academics around the world.

But, with all their engineering expertise to create an algorithm that will filter out conservative speech and ideas and up-vote the narratives put forth by the progressive communist democrats, where are the engineers when it comes to filtering scam-spam on their Gmail platform?

Here is a recent example of a Gmail message that I received. It is obviously a phishing attempt to engage the victim and elicit personal information. Amusing, for all the grammatical errors, but dastardly and damaging when received by unsuspecting senior citizens.

I wasn't aware that the Laredo City Council that oversees the Laredo International Airport, a minor commercial operation, employs English-style barristers.  And one might assume that you might leave your card at some merchant close to your location, not a destination that few visit without a compelling reason. 

I wonder if there is a consultancy opportunity to assist scammers in correcting their spelling, grammar and in fine-tuning their message?

Bottom line…

Since Google already scans their products to develop advertising leads and build personal profiles, why not turn some of that engineering effort toward protecting senior citizens and the gullible of this world.

Remember what the Better Business Bureau says, Investigate BEFORE you invest.

CNN-PLUS TO ATTEMPT SELLING SOCIALISM BY SUBSCRIPTION

By now, every political junkie has learned that Fox News’s Chris Wallace has declined to renew his contract (the “official” story) and will be leaving the network and his Fox News Sunday for something called CNN+.

Statement from FOX News Media:

“We are extremely proud of our journalism and the stellar team that Chris Wallace was a part of for 18 years. The legacy of FOX News Sunday will continue with our star journalists, many of whom will rotate in the position until a permanent host is named.”

Statement from Chris Wallace as Aired This Morning on His Final FOX News Sunday:

“After 18 years — this is my final FOX News Sunday. It is the last time — and I say this with real sadness — we will meet like this. Eighteen years ago, the bosses here at Fox promised me they would never interfere with a guest I booked or a question I asked. And they kept that promise. I have been free to report to the best of my ability, to cover the stories I think are important, to hold our country’s leaders to account. It’s been a great ride. We’ve covered five presidential elections, interviewed every president since George H.W. Bush, travelled the world — sitting down with France’s Emanuel Macron and Russia’s Vladimir Putin. And I’ve gotten to spend Sunday mornings with you. It may sound corny, but I feel we’ve built a community here. There’s a lot you can do on Sunday mornings. The fact you’ve chosen to spend this hour with us is something I cherish. But after 18 years, I have decided to leave Fox. I want to try something new, to go beyond politics to all the things I’m interested in. I’m ready for a new adventure. And I hope you’ll check it out. And so —for the last time, dear friends — that’s it for today. Have a great week. And I hope you’ll keep watching FOX News Sunday.  <Source>

Statement from CNN: Chris Wallace Joins CNN+

Chris Wallace is joining CNN as an anchor for CNN+, the much-anticipated streaming subscription service that will debut in Q1 2022.

“I am thrilled to join CNN+. After decades in broadcast and cable news, I am excited to explore the world of streaming. I look forward to the new freedom and flexibility streaming affords in interviewing major figures across the news landscape—and finding new ways to tell stories,” said Wallace. “As I embark on this adventure, I am honored and delighted to join Jeff Zucker and his great team. I can’t wait to get started.” <Source>

Perhaps Chris Wallace’s first bombshell report can be on his new boss, Jeff “Mother” Zucker, who seems to be micro-managing his corporatized and politicized media outlets? Questioning what did Zucker know about CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s secret efforts to use network resources to help his brother, former Governor Andrew Cuomo, battle sexual harassment allegations? Or any of the other problems involving the rehabilitation of CNN’s legal analyst and chief masturbator, Jeffrey Toobin? Or lately, John Griffin, a veteran CNN producer who worked closely with Chris Cuomo and has been indicted on charges of allegedly raping a young girl at his Vermont ski chalet.

So what is CNN+?

Cnn.plus

It appears that CNN (aka the Communist News Network) is following in the footsteps of those who believe that advertising-supported (free) over-the-air television is in decline and that the future lies within on-demand paid programming offered streaming from the cloud over internet-connected devices.

From its inception as the Cable News Network, founded in 1980 by the iconic Ted Turner as a 24-hour cable news channel, it appears to have drifted further and further left until it has become the electronic equivalent of Pravda, the favored news outlet of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. More accurately, it now appears to be the propaganda arm of the progressive communist democrats attempting to destroy our nation from within.

CNN+ is the latest iteration in an attempt to save a media property that has a little audience and commercial value – other than as an echo chamber for progressive communist democrats.

The lies continue…

CNN is coming off its highest rated and most trafficked year ever on both television and digital platforms and remains the most trusted name in news. From this position of strength, CNN+ will expand CNN’s unparalleled multiplatform global reach to provide a new, additive experience that complements the core CNN linear networks and digital platforms to serve CNN superfans, news junkies and fans of quality non-fiction programming.

CNN+ will feature original, live, on demand and interactive programming as a standalone direct-to-consumer service with offerings that are separate and distinct from CNN, CNN International, HLN and CNN en Español linear TV channels. At launch, 8-12 hours of live, daily programming offering topical deep dives and lifestyle content from some of CNN’s most prominent talent, as well as several new faces, will live alongside a thriving community component for fans to connect directly with anchors and experts in real time conversations about the issues that matter most to them. <Source>

Yeah. Right!

CNN’s Top-Rated Show Came In 22nd Place In Cable News Ratings

CNN, whose year-on-year total day ratings increased 63% in the first quarter of 2021, fell to earth over the last three months. CNN’s top-rated show, “Cuomo Prime Time,” finished 22nd in cable news, behind 14 Fox News shows and seven broadcast on MSNBC. <Source>

Notably, CNN’s viewership fell to new lows since the start of the year, notching its lowest-rated month in both categories in total day since July 2019, with 70 percent declines in both primetime and total day across the board as well as its lowest-rated primetime demo since August 2015. Of all news networks, CNN is down the most year to year, shedding more than half of its audience with both total day and primetime demo. Meanwhile, MSNBC lost over half its audience in all categories since January 2021 to date, as FNC remains the top-rated cable news network year-to-date in both total day and primetime total viewers. <Source>

CNN Ratings Tank to 7-Year Low

CNN posted its lowest-rated quarter in seven years from July through September as Fox News dominated cable and late-night network television. In a third quarter this year that was never short on news, CNN’s performance in the key 25-to-54 demographic dropped to a low not seen since 2014. Apparently, trying to put a positive spin on crisis after crisis for the Biden administration hasn’t paid off. <Source>

The money must be great if you are willing (?) to leave a top-rated network like Fox for CNN, the home of loser reprobates. Or did Chris Wallace’s fuddy-duddy “old man” style or increasingly leftist politics do him in at a network seeking to grab a younger demographic?

Bottom line…

Socialism and communism are hard to monetize. There is nothing remotely admirable or marketable about a harmful, hostile, and destructive ideology that has brought death, misery, and suffering to hundreds of millions of people --perhaps why progressive programming is shrill, repetitive, and tiresome propaganda.

I hope Jeff MotherZucker and his enterprises are a costly failure and an example that virtue-signaling, racist, and progressive propaganda does not resonate with Americans.

As for Chris Wallace, may he replace Mr. Potato-head, Brian Stelter, as the face of the Communist News Network? Will he fit in with all the other so-called "journalists" like Jake Tapper, Chuck Todd, and Don Lemon who can seem to tell the difference from reporting the facts and reporting a narrative as fact.

We are so screwed when propagandists produce narratives rather than report the facts.
