“Facebook serves as an echo chamber, especially for conservatives”

2020 October 27
by drdog09

— Washington Post

The problem with the Press today its that they are not.

A more apt description would be activists with a pencil. –

The problem according to this particular gem of idiocy, which just echoes the very same thing the media has been saying for four years is that, “On Facebook you can only be friends with people who agree to be friends with you, too. This minimizes the chances of seeing content from people with more diverse, opinion-challenging viewpoints.”

This is coming from the Washington Post which boasts zero “diverse, opinion-challenging viewpoints” for its base.

The New York Times at least has token conservatives. For now. The Washington Post has Jennifer Rubin and Max Boot whose only topics are how the Republican Party must be destroyed and the earth salted with its bones. Also it has George Will who lacks the same fiery enthusiasm, but evinces a more gentlemanly contempt.

Now can you imagine that the Post is calling Facebook an echo chamber for the Right? Sure thing. With suppression, link blockage, de-friending, and blocking outside sources its a great resource for the Right – NOT. What’s worse? Jennifer Rubin is touted as the conservative voice for the Post! Yet she considers Facebook a Right Wing echo chamber.

These people need to get out of their BoshWash bubble and meet the real world.

    As to ACB. Like Roberts I think she is going to be a swinger. Especially in the realm of ‘settled law’. She won’t be a originalist to the depth Scalia was. But at least we have a court headed in the right direction. The idea from the previous post that Thomas will be the standard bearer for the Right is appropriate.

    Here is my confusion, is it 10% of the take or 10% of the vote?

    The Left will never defeat the Right so long as the Right holds onto its sense of humor.

    The already disgraced media is indeed scrambling to save Biden, and they morphed almost completely into the Ministry of Truth in the process. Apparently a huge swath of Americans, the WOKE, likes being lied to.

    Consider this scene from ‘1984’…and how closely it mirrors what is happening now. Early in ‘1984’ Winston, loyal minion of the Ministry of Truth, reads the announcement that in the coming week the chocolate ration will be reduced from thirty grams to twenty. He realizes that just a couple months back the Ministry of Plenty had issued a promise (a ‘categorical pledge’ were the official words) that there would be no reduction of the chocolate ration during 1984. His job is to “fix” the “news” to reconcile these two things. He decides that all he need do is substitute for the original promise a warning that it would “probably be necessary to reduce the ration at some time in April.” But then he realizes someone has re-written HIS story to turn a reduction in ration into an INCREASE!

    Welcome to 1984, where our media just makes shit up for consumption on the Ministry of Truth outlets: MSNBC, CNN, ABC/CBS/NBC, NYTimes, NPR, WaPo, et al.

    ==> Even before Hunter Biden’s laptop surfaced, the media busied themselves suppressing information that was readily available to the ordinary citizen — montages of Biden plagiarizing, groping little girls, making racially insensitive comments, eulogizing exalted KKK cyclops, threatening Ukrainian prosecutors, even sexually assaulting at least one very credible Democrat — and they did so with enough success that the Biden camp felt comfortable positioning Joe as the candidate with “character.”

    NO ONE from the Conservative and/or Libertarian side of the political spectrum is promising retaliation and violence if Trump loses…NO ONE. If they were, the media would cover it non-stop.

    What do our resident AZ fact checks give this? So are they now exploiting 5mil track of the indian reservation land we apparently can’t build the wall on? btw I’ve read lots of treaties with reservations, esp in neb… but not whatever one covers this reservation… but I’m pretty fucken sure we can build a wall on our countries border and not be in breach, and while I’d like to respect our agreements, even if we don’t by some lack of forethought 100+ years ago have access, we should do it anyway, it’s the national fucking border, if you can’t give up two hundred yards then just join mexico already.

    A new worry for Eyore the King, please pass it along.

    What if there is coordinated election interference by America’s enemies (China, Iran, …) to benefit Joe on Election Day when many Repubs have chosen to vote?
    A big attack on the Internet to take down vote centers. Or something. Anyway, anything that can be done on Election Day itself will disproportionately help Dems.

    btw, Jeez, I’m a tech guy but these vote analyses are hard to grok. Are we OK in FL or not? 🙂

    It seems clear that Trump will improve his 2016 totals picking up new supporters, some Blacks, some Hispanics, some of the 3rd Party voters and so on.
    But I’m sure Joe is counting on a ton of new low-info voters showing up, many of whom were able to sit-on-their-hands and refrain from voting for Hillary but are revved up in 2020. I still don’t see Joe getting more votes than Obama, though.

    I confess: I don’t understand the FL vote analysis at all. Still, who’s against good news?
    Seen on the Internet–

    “More good news from FL: total Dem lead now 272315.
    Down almost 80K from 24 hours ago, may be down 100K by day’s end.”

    Jim,

    Assumption is by the time that Nov 3rd rolls by the Dims will be matched or marginally bested by the GOPers. Then the ‘Red Wave’ hits. Its all that the Dims talk about. Then it is a wipe out.

    Also keep something in mind. Florida sits in two time zones. 50 miles West of the state capital is in the Central Zone. The results come in a hour later and that part of the state has been heavily red.

    An update for the FL numbers. Looks like they got the follow-on improvement of 20K and chopped a full 100K off the Dem lead.

    “FL looking better than ever. Dem overall lead now under 250K. That’s over 100K drop in 48 hours. If pace continues, Rs will be in the overall lead by Election Day and it will be game over.”

    “The Law”, properly understood, is simply an agreement between the governed and the governing classes, in which private justice is exchanged for public justice fairly administered pursuant to a publicly-accepted system of rules.

    Now that “equal justice under the law” is no more than a snickering punchline amongst the governing classes, private justice will return. Good and hard.
