Chael Bows To Feminist Black Hole Image

One of the researchers responsible for the black hole “photo” is angry that “Internet trolls” attempted to give credit to multiple scientists for its creation instead of one woman.

As Big League Politics reported yesterday, the mainstream media is attempting to give full credit for the black hole “photo” to Katie Bouman, when it was actually made possible by a team of over 200 scientists from more than 15 countries.

One of the researchers, Andrew Chael, who wrote over 850,000 lines of code in GitHub “model files,” came to her defense, worried that she was not receiving enough credit for the image.

Chael wrote that he is concerned the public is using his impressive work to “launch awful and sexist attacks” against Bouman. CNN backed him up with an article claiming “Internet trolls tried to credit a white man for the black hole image”, totally missing the point of many individuals’ criticisms.

For Chael’s part, he too seems inclined to point out that this was not simply Bouman performing a superhuman effort by herself. He lauded her for “pointing out that this was a team effort,” but chastised his new fans, bemoaning their alleged “sexist agenda” against Bouman.

He also noted, for some reason, that he is a “gay astronomer.”

Bouman herself made clear on Facebook that she does not deserve full credit for the image, saying that her algorithm was one among many used in its creation. She also noted that various researchers crowded into a room with their computers to generate the image simultaneously, in a move purposely taken to avoid a single researcher receiving a disproportionate amount of credit.

In fact, the New York Times was forced to admit that her initial algorithm that earned her a place on the team was not even used in creating the famous image.

Even after two researchers made clear that this was a joint effort, the media remains hyper focused on Bouman’s contribution, likely because she is a young, female researcher. In their rush to credit Bouman, the media has completely glossed over the other 206 scientists spread across 17 countries who worked diligently to provide the first ever image of a black hole.

By neglecting to mention the rest of the team, the media raises Bouman, who worked on an “imaging subteam”, above the rest of the researchers, and invites observers to draw their own conclusions about why the young woman is receiving such attention.

If pointing out that a woman was part of a larger effort accomplished by more than 200 other researchers, apparently including a gay astronomer, constitutes a “sexist attack,” perhaps CNN and other media outlets should have done their job in the first place by giving credit to the full team of scientists.

More than 40 College and Young Republican Groups Sign Letter Demanding Action on Big Tech Censorship from Senate GOP

Calling out Silicon Valley’s election interference.

Published

Almost 50 youth conservative organizations, ranging from Young to College Republican Chapters and America First student groups, signed onto an open letter on Friday demanding action from Senate Republicans on Big Tech censorship and political authoritarianism.

The young conservatives and nationalists cited the recent suppression of the Hunter Biden email scandal, with platforms such as Twitter implementing an unprecedented level of political censorship to squelch a New York Post report detailing insider foreign business dealings and Joe Biden’s knowledge of them.

In a statement provided to Big League Politics, College Republicans United at Arizona State University emphasized the need for conservatives to unite against the authoritarian alliance of the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley tech monopolies.

Democrats use to be the loudest critics of ‘Corporate America’ trampling on the rights of average Americans. These days they are nothing more then corporate apologists who protect crony capitalism.”

Populist Senator Josh Hawley has taken point in the drive to hold Silicon Valley oligarchs to account for their censorship of the American people, but the anti-Big Tech movement has been hamstrung by malcontents within the Senate GOP caucus unwilling to do little more than whine about censorship, while actively undermining a policy solution.
