Google’s new tool, Perspective, works by comparing comments left on news websites to comments left on Wikipedia and the New York Times that were deemed “toxic” by a team of human reviewers.
The only criteria given for what constitutes a “toxic” comment is that it causes someone to leave a conversation. Obviously, this could also include someone who lost a debate or who is merely offended or triggered by another comment.
With trust in mainstream media plummeting, the real goal behind the censorship and in some cases entire removal of comment sections is to manipulate public opinion.
As the Daily Tech revealed, Popular Science admitted that the decision to pull its comment section was in order to preach a “scientific doctrine” on global warming without being challenged.
Popular Science acknowledged that their decision was based on a study by Dominique Brossard, a Life Sciences Communication professor at the Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison, that appeared in the February 2013 edition of the peer-reviewed Journal of Computer-Mediated Communications.
And this is what you have going on right now with mainstream media outlets. They are supposed to be allowing US citizens discuss and fact check their articles but now your seeing their own personal bias become the news. Big shout out to Infowars!
Are there any bridges left in Chicago... almost as bad as Detroit.
So are Aldous Huxley's works. Brave New World now is claimed, by the leftists who, during my college days, were promulgating Huxley as well as Orwell as heroes of the liberal realm, to be only satire and not in any way prophetic.
I, as well as today's environment, disagree. Huxley and Orwell alike were spot-on in prediction of our fishbowl, government-oppressed life.
The election of President Trump, the very first in our executive office who is not a career politician but is, rather, a very successful businessman is hopefully the harbinger of a brighter and better future than either of those two doomsayers have foretold.
We shall see...
Yes, it fits. Trump is our John Galt.
You don't think he fits?
" The study found that, “People reacted neutrally when comments were disabled, but even when comments were generally positive their reactions did not noticeably improve. However, when the reader feedback took on a “less civil” tone with people questioning the merits of nanotechnology, user perception of the publication itself (not just the topic discussed) took a decidedly negative turn.”
In other words, the credibility of the article in question is largely dependent on the tone of the comments left in response. The more negative, uncivil and “toxic” the tone, the less likely the reader is to trust the article and the publication.
Once these “toxic” comments are removed, the reader is more likely to trust CNN, the New York Times, or whoever publishes the article.
Any technology developed by Silicon Valley to combat so-called “hate speech” is inevitably going to have a liberal bias baked in.
Last year, Facebook was forced to admit that it was manually gaming its ‘trending’ section algorithm to stifle conservative topics.
Twitter has also become increasingly stringent on policing content, censoring search results and deeming certain tweets “low quality,” a completely subjective definition. Numerous prominent conservatives have been banned by Twitter in recent months.
This is all part of the effort to segregate Internet content into social media ghettos and then censor that content, as Matt Drudge warned about during his 2015 appearance on the Alex Jones Show. "
It use to be the federal government was pushing We The People into a mold of One Size Fits All not We The People know it is liberals, democrats, progressives, RINO's, anti-United States of America, for President Trump, his administration - witch the senate keeps holding up the conformation hearings and full senate votes on - and We The People want To Make America Great Again!!!!
VERY WELL STATED
controlling exactly what people think, MSM 'news' = 'that is our job'.
They are getting their asses handed to them in these comment sections and yes, it's an attempt to censor, pushing their false-narratives into the world without anyone there to challenge it. Just glad to see folks paying attention to this. VERY IMPORTANT TO COMBAT CENSORSHIP
There is none of the so-called hate speech present on any of Google's public commentary spots, nor has there ever been. If there had been any of that kind of speech, it would still be extant.
"He who controls the past controls the future"
"He who controls the present controls the past"
don't trust any of them EVER AGAIN
