January 14, 2021 by

2

By Peter Murphy ~ The large social media and search companies, a.k.a., “Big Tech,” have long been out of the closet when it comes to censorship, as CFACT has documented.

By Peter Murphy ~ The planet is a large place, and its climate is changing, and always has, for a variety of factors far beyond our reach.  One of the major factors influencing climate change is—not surprisingly—the sun itself.

By Peter Murphy ~ I have been a news junkie since high school. Media bias favoring left-of-center public policies and politicians is nothing new, yet this 40-year-plus reality never gets shopworn.  The flagrancy of skewed news coverage to favor one political agenda and oppose another is worse than ever and still surprises. There is no […]
