How To Measure The Liberal Bias In Google News

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ This is the latest in my investigation of Google bias against skeptics and conservatives. President Trump recently held a summit meeting on this bias.  Left wing critics of the President say there is no hard evidence, but it is not hard to find. I already documented a glaring case, where […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Nature Communications has just published an article, “Discrepancy in scientific authority and media visibility of climate change scientists and contrarians,” which contains a list of 386 “climate change contrarians” whom the authors think have undue influence on public discussions about climate change.

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ President Trump has claimed that Google discriminates against conservatives.  This is true to varying degrees, some of which are extreme. https://www.politico.com/story/2019/07/11/anti-tech-bill-sponsor-white-house-social-media-summit-1586902 As I pointed out in my article “How Google discriminates against conservatives and skeptics” the anti-conservative bias is built into Google’s search algorithm. https://www.cfact.org/2019/08/10/how-google-discriminates-against-conservatives-and-skeptics/ There is actually a semantic […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ A month ago I predicted political turmoil in EU HQ and here it is.

The issue is who gets the top political positions? It is sort of […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The climate crisis crusaders are very unhappy about the first two Democrat candidate debates. If you think (irrationally) that the future of the human species is somehow at stake, then the few scant and mostly empty minutes devoted to the topic are very upsetting. Hence their anger. As I said […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ In my article Priceless Crisis I wondered whether the climate issue would rise, fall or be swept under the rug in the presidential candidate debates? That still remains to be seen but the issue has blown up for sure. Some people now want a separate climate debate, but the powers […]
