The big tech platform is continuing its censorship campaign of conservative Facebook groups, and is displaying its bias clearly in its efforts to decrease the reach and engagement of conservative voices.
As Big League Politics has revealed repeatedly, Facebook is using the inaccurate articles shared by individual Facebook users within groups containing thousands of members to punish the reach, engagement, and membership status of these often conservative groups.
Now Facebook and its “independent fact checker” has displayed its bias by fact checking two different somewhat true instances differently. In one instance, Facebook rated a story as a “mixture” because it used a video from 2018 and suggested it was recorded in 2019.
In the other instance, Facebook rated a story as “false” because it used a 2018 video of pro-President Donald Trump demonstrations in the United Kingdom and suggested it was recorded in 2019.
The first instance showed news footage, while the second showed an outpouring of British citizens supporting President Trump. When referring to the news, Facebook offered a lenient “mixture” rating, but condemned the inaccurate news about President Trump as “false”.
As Big League Politics has reported previously, this system is rife with opportunities for abuse.
Most groups, including this journalist’s God Emperor Trump (Official) group, depend almost entirely on volunteer staffers. While it has always been the policy in God Emperor Trump: (Official) to remove calls to violence, speech using racial or religious slurs, imagery that may be considered a provocation to violence, as well as content that mainstream Americans may find acceptable but could violate the Facebook Community Standards, the volunteer staff now must become fact checkers who are experts on everything from geology to climate change to British politics.
This also creates the perfect opportunity for nefarious individuals to infiltrate groups they disagree with politically and post what Facebook considers “false news” to force the group to undergo collective punishment.
Republicans could employ this tactic against Democrats as easily as they could Republicans, however, Big League Politics has thus far been able to find a single example of a left-leaning Facebook group receiving these notifications.
Brave Browser Planning New Censorship-Free Search Engine Free From Big Tech
The replacement for Google?
The developers of privacy-based web browser Brave are developing a new search engine designed to compete with Silicon Valley behemoth Google, advertising a service that will be free from Big Tech’s notorious left-wing censorship.
The Tailcat search engine will reportedly offer its own privacy features, and rely on an index totally separated from infrastructure created by Big Tech.
“Under the hood, nearly all of today’s search engines are either built by, or rely on, results from Big Tech companies. In contrast, the Tailcat search engine is built on top of a completely independent index, capable of delivering the quality people expect but without compromising their privacy,” Brave said of the engine in a press release. “Tailcat does not collect IP addresses or use personally identifiable information to improve search results.”
The Brave Browser has gained popularity with internet refugees seeking to escape Big Tech’s bias and centralized model of the internet. The Tailcat engine is advertising many of the same privacy features, in addition to neutral algorithms that eschew Google’s search engine rigging in support of establishment liberalism.
“Brave will provide the first private browser+search alternative to the Big Tech platforms, and will make it seamless for users to browse and search with guaranteed privacy. Also, owing to its transparent nature, Brave Search will address algorithmic biases and prevent outright censorship.”
Brave founder Brendan Eich is pointing to the increasingly popularity of the browser as an indication for desire for a new search engine, remarking that Brave’s user base has doubled from 11 million to 26 million over the past year.
Google’s days as the unchallenged king of search engines may be numbered, with internet users increasingly tired of the platform’s corruption, censorship, and anti-competitive practices.
