Yes you read that right, the Southern Policy Law Center that both Twitter and Youtube have boasted about using are actually producing misleading articles that meet all the criteria of FAKE NEWS.
Not only are they producing fake news these articles are defamatory, libelous and deliberately designed to create targeted harassment and they don’t care who they are attacking and only remove the articles for ‘review’ when the articles come under scrutiny.
The latest one targeted left leaning independent journalist Tim Pool. Someone that I would trust for an unbiased opinion on many of the subjects.
This past week an article was written by an employee or contributor to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website and news system accusing Tim Pool of being a far right journalist, he was also accused of having visited Iran and spoke at a conference there even though as Mr Pool pointed out to the the audience in his own video that he couldn’t have gone there even if he wanted because at the time he was working for a far left news outlet Fusion and was reporting in Ferguson at the time this conference was supposed to have taken place.
It was only after multiple people pointed this out that they pulled the article “Temporarily” for review and at this time it is no longer visible on their servers. It coincides with another article targeting another Journalist who is also not far right and was pulled only after the Journalist started legal proceedings against the SPLC.
How many more inflammatory articles have been produced by this entity that both Jack Dorsey and Susan Wojcicki have boasted are the new gold standard policing method for their websites. Does this explain the targeting of conservative voices? How can you trust an entity that is not only targeting people based on what politics they express but also if they happen to stand too far to the right for their liking and by the looks of it too far to the right of their politics means any political opinions to the right of Josef Stalin!
I’ve watched Tim Pool’s reports for several months and he calls out those on both the right and the left, in fact he is doing the job that all reporters and journalists should be doing and calling out those that show a lack of integrity. Is this the reason?
Either way it makes me wary when I hear that a Youtube creator has had their account taken down for an inane reason or for a video that was never made available to the public, i.e. set to private and had zero views other than by the Creator. It makes me concerned when a person on Twitter has their account locked or are suspended and the reason given was either no reason at all or that “you may have barely crossed the lines and broke some anonymous rule” or “insulted a member of the far left in a tweet”.
A concern about the far right cannot be fixed by introducing policing by extremists at the other end of the political spectrum from them and the Southern Poverty Law Center are blatantly very far left.
If this far left leaning policing of Twitter and Youtube give an unfair and biased opinion at what point does Apple ban the Youtube and Twitter apps from the App Store because they demonstrate the same characteristics of the likes of the Gab AI app that was refused availability on the Apple App Store and removed from the Google Play store because of an implied far right leaning on a platform who’s users are both Liberal and Conservative.
When will platforms learn that people should not be “Nannied” and mothered, if a person doesn’t like an opinion they don’t have to read it, they don’t have to respond to it and they don’t have to lose sleep over it, all platforms have features that allow the muting or blocking. Well Youtube doesn’t, even if you request not to ever see a person’s content it shows up time and again, but that’s the fault of the company and their inability to write decent working code.
Have people ever forgotten something important, an app or platform only exists if users actually use it and just like the days of TV shows relying on viewers the apps rely on users to keep them around. Vid.Me learned that, not enough users led to them closing their doors, other social platforms have gone the same way due to lack of users and the best protection a person can have is to self police and if they feel that the platform is over run with what they don’t like to see then just don’t go there. If you don’t like Tea you don’t drink it, the same with any social platform, don’t like it don’t participate.
Just don’t let the likes of ADL and SPLC etc police it for you, you may find that the result is not “protecting you” it’s protecting their interests and their interests alone.
