A new Free Speech America study demonstrates that a Google search for “presidential campaign websites” locates Joe Biden, Marianne Williamson, and Will Hurd on the first page. How can Google be this dysfunctional? Is it on purpose?
MRC Free Speech America chief Dan Schneider insists Google is up to no good. Surely they could create an algorithm that could give you all the current candidates in a simple search for “presidential campaign websites,” but it doesn’t. It doesn’t want to make it easy for you to find DeSantis or Ramaswamy.
Then we discuss FSA’s big investigation into Ad Fontes Media, one of those businesses that claim to measure the reliability and tilt of media outlets in the interest of “media literacy.” We never trust any chart that puts AP and PBS and NPR in the “Middle” with high reliability. NewsBusters and Fox News and most conservative outlets are painted as unreliable and “hyperpartisan.”
But this is worse. The Ad Fontes team wants to use their cockamamie ratings and suppress conservative advertising and go into schools and teach “media literacy,” as in “kids, stay away from those dangerous conservative neighborhoods.”
