Google Promoted Fake Vegas Shooting News; Won’t Apologize Or Explain

Google is all about algorithms. Google thinks algorithms will help it rule the world.

Except in Google’s case, algorithms are created by punk kids and allowed to run wild across the world, spreading like a real virus infecting people around the globe.

Think the cries of “fake news” are just a deflecting shield used by Donald Trump and his ilk? No.

The latest, uh hum, “real fake news,” was allowed to spread across the netscape thanks to Google and its secretive algorithms that its punk CEO would never ever tell those who need to know – The Public.

The more we the Public rely on singular multi-trillion dollar corporations like Alphabet(owner of Google) and Facebook, the more we will act like the Herd they want us to be – Eating what they feed us, going where they tell us, doing what they tell us, feeling how they want us to feel and…Thinking how they want us to Think.

NYT’s Exec Dean Baquet Dumps Copy Editor’s Desk

If you’re frustrasted – er, frustrated – from reading all the errors in your New York Times stories you’re not alone.

Now the copy editors at the New York Times have been fired. All for the sake of cost cutting and their sudden fascination with “New Media.”

Executive Editor Dean Baquet – the Torquemada of newspaper publishing – thinks that cohesive news stories can be produced without the time-honored position of the copy editor.

Good luck with that, Deano.

It was just last week that Sarah Palin brought legal action against The Times for their sloppy editorial – no doubt written by a twenty-something – that wrongly described Palin’s despicable gunsight campaign ads as directly targeting Rep. Gabby Giffords rather than her district. (The Times had to correct the editorial.)

The New York Times under Dean Baquet has been in a steady slide toward sloppy muck and his wholesale firings of dedicated, vitally important staff members underscores Baquet’s schoolboy joy of dismantling what was once the greatest newspaper in these United States.

Note: And while Baquet makes these supposedly cost-savings moves, the same day’s NYT’s paper reviews a $377,000 Ferrari station wagon made for the average family to drop off the kids to school…

How’s THAT for the good liberal disconnect? Fire the workers then feed the readers their Ferrari fantasies.

Oh, shut up and go back to your little smartphone screens…

NYT’s Accepts $ To Promote “Fearless Girl” Controversy

How fiercely crass is The New York Times? We’ll tell you.

On April 12th 2017 they promoted a “controversial” story about the “Fearless Girl” statue on Wall Street and how it turned the sculptor of the Wall Street bull rather peevish.

It turned out to generate massive coverage and feedback from people all over the world.

Great, you might say?

Not so great, we say.

Why?

Because the “Fearless Girl” statue was commissioned by State Street Capitol Advisors – Who The New York Times took Big $ from for a Big Ad in their same day’s Business Section which just so happened to blare – get this – “Sometimes Shit Happens.”

Well, actually, the ad said – “Sometimes —– Happens.”

But why be coy when you’re in bed with The New York Times and promoting yourself by ludicrously tying your corporate profits onto the back of the Women’s Rights Movement?

Talk about shame.

Shame on The New York Times.

Shame on State Street Capitol Advisors.

Shame on all those who got suckered into this false “discussion” of “Fearless Girl” when the real issue is about two corporations making a tempest in a teapot in order to generate corporate profits.

Betsy DeVos Ed. Department Can’t Spell In Tweets – Even Misspells Apology

Sunday the US Department of Education put out a tweet that misspelled the name of W.E.B. DuBois.

Then they put out a corrected tweet.

Then they put out a tweet to apologize. The only problem: It was retched, incorrect English.

“Our deepest apologizes for the earlier typo.”

Okay. It was on a Sunday.

Excuses? Someone in the Department of Education was seriously hungover.

Or better yet…Betsy DeVos is doing the tweets and our schoolkids are in for 4 years of treats.

Here We Go Again: Kansas Ball Players Involved In Dorm Rape Of Underage Minor

Update: It’s February 25 2017 and there are already more transgressions by Kansas ballplayers. Arrests and new reports – one of which involves a player repeatedly beating a girlfriend – and Kansas coach Bill Self has stood tall in denying and obfuscating the criminal behavior of his wards.

 Self has refused to suspend or even offer the mildest of punishments toward his players.

Meanwhile, media outlets are pouring out loving stories of Kansas’ phenomenal success this season…at what price?  

Yes, while ESPN provides constant blanket promos of the Saturday Kansas vs Kentucky basketball matchup, nowhere do you hear the Disney company say anything about the 5 Kansas ball players involved in the December rape of a 16 year old girl that took place in the Kansas basketball campus dormitory.

http://deadspin.com/bill-self-discusses-distraction-of-very-serious-alle-1791669699

While the Kansas police drag their feet on the investigation Kansas basketball coach Bill Self is incredulously blaming the media for the alleged crime. Self has apparently decided that the rape of an underage minor in which his star players were interviewed as witnesses is not something to be concerned about – no, rather, it’s a “distraction” from the real business of Kansas basketball.

The Kansas ball coach, by blaming the media, has taken the playbook from President Trump.

Coach Self has professed a “see no evil” position. The coach has even refused to question his own players because – well, in legal terms, once he is made aware of a problem then he is made liable.

Face it: College athletics has become a despicable business.

Louisville’s coach Rick Pitino has professed that just because his assistant coach ran a stripper/prostitute recruiting program at the basketball dorm that he’s not responsible because, he claims, plausible deniability.

These coaches have taken the criminal defense route while reaping $millions with the wins their young men provide, while ignoring the criminal behavior taking place under their noses.

And the Walt Disney Corp., owners of ESPN, think they’re a “family” business. Why do they blatantly promote criminal operations while making heroes of those within these criminal operations?

Spielberg’s Film Dogged By Dog Abuse; Forget When His Film Murdered 3 Actors?

Some recent footage of an abused dog from the set of the Steven Spielberg produced “A Dog’s Purpose” brings back memories from the murderous set of 1983’s “The Twilight Zone.”

http://www.tmz.com/2017/01/18/a-dogs-purpose-video-suspension/

If you think a dog being abused is bad, how about a helicopter decapitating 2 actors and crushing a third? Two of them were child actors. The scene was being directed by John Landis but was under the supervision of producer Steven Speilberg.

http://cinetropolis.net/time-out-the-twilight-zone-movie-and-the-death-of-vic-morrow/

Kind of puts things in perspective.

And no one ever found justice for the murdered actor Vic Morrow and the two children.

That’s Hollywood!

 

ESPN Sucks: 5 Takeaways

1. ESPN is owned by The Walt Disney Company, a  corporation that rakes in $52 Billion dollars every year and is only interested in making many more billions of dollars.

2. ESPN makes a habit of promoting the most powerful sports’ interests.

The latest example would be their blatant Duke/Louisville basketball commercials where they make a hero out of Duke’s creepy, cheating Grayson Allen. Does it matter to ESPN that Allen has been repeatedly kicking hitting opponents and is despised by most Americans who value sportsmanship?

No. ESPN wants to make this creep a hero.

3. The number one mantra of every good American should be: “Question Authority.” ESPN will never question authority because they are invested in the status quo.

See a bad call on the football field or on the ball court? ESPN announcers rarely question referees’ or officials’ calls. Questioning authority upsets the status quo. Even though all of America sees what is unfair, ESPN people are blind.

4. ESPN lies by omission.

Before Alabama woefully lost to Clemson in the national championship game, ESPN already crowned Alabama the champ, reporting countless stories and video feeds promoting the invulnerability of the Alabama football team.

Whoops!

Then after Clemson kicked Alabama’s butt in the championship game ESPN practically ignored the results and ignored Clemson’s victory.

Why?

Because ESPN owns the SEC Network where Alabama plays. It is in ESPN’s financial interest to promote Alabama.

Clemson? ESPN won’t make money off Clemson. So they ignore them.

Everyone’s up on fake news. How about “fake non-news?”

5. These “Takeaway” things are just plain silly so make up your own for this last one…

PS: Dan Dakich and Kirk Herbstreit are the 2 exceptions at ESPN: They are both very good at what they do.
