New from me: New internal documents show Facebook has long known—via years of experimentation and research—that its algorithms and recommendation systems push users to extremes. To researchers they gaslit, “Facebook literally helped facilitate a cult."
Tucker Carlson saying right now that government is going to "use" what happened today as a way to "strip" people of their rights. All your freedoms "are in peril," he tells his audience. WHAT IS FOX NEWS DOING?
There is a HUGE constellation full of “Breaking News” Twitter accounts that spread hoaxes and unverified info to rack up followers. If you see a “BREAKING” post from a source you don’t know, spreading incredible news without a link, best to question it.
Tucker needed an origin story so he attacked his first grade teacher—the one who was hired by his wealthy dad to give him extra tutoring when he struggled to read—as a hysterical woman in “Indian skirts”who shirked her duty to teach. WaPo talked to her.

I used to teach a media literacy course and I kinda wish I still did so Andy Ngo’s videos could be put to good use. Selective edits, stripping context, text that doesn’t match visuals, emotional manipulation, obvious bias, historical untrustworthiness, the man does it all!
