Study confirms that U.S. news media turns all news, even positive news, into negative spin stories. In this case, a study looked a news reporting of Covid-19 and found that about 90% of U.S. news reports are negative in tone to the point that there were 5.5 times more stories about rising Covid cases – during periods when cases were actually in decline!
The Guardian is a daily fictional story service that pretends to report the news. They’ve tossed the IPCC official terminology of “climate change” and replaced it with their own creation of inflammatory rhetoric “climate crisis” and “global heating”.
When is something a “crisis” and when is it not? “Crisis” is an intentional word used to evoke emotions – or to call for action. One can choose to use the word “crisis” to suggest something awful (even if not really) or can deliberately choose not to use the world “crisis” to minimize the optics of the situation.
The sole purpose of social media is to serve as a frictionless platform for the spread of propaganda, in order to sell eyeballs to advertisers.
When government officials ask third parties to prohibit speech, they are practicing censorship via proxy. Legally, in the U.S., we still have the First Amendment. The answer to speech we do not like is to have more speech.
Why the bad-news bias? The researchers say they are not sure what explains their findings, but they do have a leading contender: The U.S. media is giving the audience what it wants. — Show Me The Data (@txsalth2o) March 24, 2021
Twitter censors a doctor for posting a fact-based reasonable questions. Social media is a friction-less platform for the spread of officially sanctioned propaganda. Anything else, even facts, are censored by Twitter.
Teen Vogue hired a new editor, who is Black, but is then fired after another staffer, who is part Asian, outed the editor for inappropriate social media remarks about Asians made when the editor was a teen. Then it turns out – of course – the staffer with Asian ancestry has made past inappropriate comments on social media about Blacks. Social media and acting dumbly as a young person combine to kill off a lot of careers now days.
Great example of how Google tracks your location at all times, even if you have turned off Location Services. They still know where you are and where you have been.
The bogus World Happiness Report is back. The news media loves to run stories about this annual nonsense report that defines happiness as living in a Scandinavian country. I analyzed and demolished this report back in 2016.
