Narrative buster?

Apparently, some people believed that online “conservative content” was radicalizing the uninformed. That couldn’t be more ridiculous from the jump, considering the uninformed aren’t reading conservative content.

The uninformed are busy on HuffPost and BuzzFeed. They are not even remotely interested in real news and facts. They just want to hear what they’re already thinking. They need their facts confirmed. Check this out, via Daily Wire:

A new study out of Penn State’s Political Science Department found that rather than conservative content online leading to radicalization, as the popular “gateway” narrative insists, the reverse appears to be true.

The study, titled “A Supply and Demand Framework for YouTube Politics,” published online in October, takes a closer look at the popular narrative that YouTube serves as a “radicalizing agent,” particularly for the right. Conservative content, the narrative goes, supposedly acts as a “gateway” for viewers, potentially leading them to the fringes of the far-right.

Contrary to the ‘gateway drug’ narrative, new study shows the Intellectual Dark Web (i.e. @jordanbpeterson @prageru @joerogan @benshapiro @RubinReport ) is de-radicalizing potential Alt-Right viewers

This is likely to make a few liberal heads explode.

Then again, they’ll never know about this study because they don’t read what they should be reading.

WATCH:

Biden’s gonna do Joe Biden whether thousands or, more realistically, dozens are in attendance.

That was the case in Iowa on Monday, September 2.

No many people showed to hear Joe speak because nobody really cares what Joe has to say.

Given his gaffe-prone ways though, it might be like attending a comedy club if you get sloshed right before showing up!

WATCH:

Save conservative media!

Sanders Takes Big Double-Digit Lead In Brand New National Poll, While Biden Falls Apart And Bloomberg Rises

Published

on

Bernie Sanders is enjoying a massive boost in the polls thanks to a solid showing at the Iowa caucuses and his victory in New Hampshire, but what’s good news for the Vermont senator is not so hot for original favored candidate former Vice President Joe Biden who continues to crumble. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, however, is also enjoying a major surge in the polls. This just goes to show you that politics are totally unpredictable, as everyone sort of assumed the nominee would, without a doubt, be Joe Biden. The landscape continues to shift. Here’s more from Fox News: Sanders garnered 32 percent support in the ABC News/Washington Post poll, followed by Biden at 17 percent and Bloomberg at 14 percent. Sanders has been boosted by a win in the Vermont primary and at least a top-two finish in the yet-to-be-called Iowa caucuses, while Biden is still counting on his South Carolina firewall to hold after middling finishes in both states. The trio is trailed by Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren at 11 percent, the only other candidate reaching double-digits in the poll. https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/1230089763090259969 The ABC News/Washington Post poll follows another national poll released Tuesday by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist which had Bloomberg in second place behind Sanders and Biden in third. That poll put Bloomberg over the top of the Democratic National Committee’s threshold to participate in Wednesday’s debate in Las Vegas ahead of the Nevada caucuses. Bloomberg, whose 14 percent total in Wednesday’s poll is up from 8 percent in January, has seemed to poach moderate Democrats from Biden’s camp with his huge advertising budget, spending upwards of $400 million so far. He is not competing in any of the first four primary states — campaigning instead in delegate-rich Super Tuesday states while the other candidates toiled away…

Bloomberg News Ex-Reporter’s Wife Claims Bloomberg’s Lawyers Threatened Family Over China Reporting

Published

More and more evidence comes out about Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg every day that proves this man might not be a very good fit for the highest office in the land. There have been numerous racist and sexist comments that have come out about Bloomberg, not to mention his statements about how elderly cancer patients should be denied treatment and left to die so those resources go to younger patients. Apparently, according to the wife of a former Bloomberg News reporter, Michael Bloomberg threatened to “ruin” her family financially if she ever spoke out about how the publication killed a story that was critical of Chinese leadership in the Communist Party. Here’s more from Fox News: Leta Hong Fincher, whose husband, Michael Forsythe, now writes for the New York Times, wrote that the former New York City mayor threatened to “devastate” her family if she jeopardized his financial ties to China. “My story shows the lengths that the Bloomberg machine will go to in order to avoid offending Beijing,” Fincher began an editorial for The Intercept. Fincher first explained that her husband wrote a Bloomberg News article connecting the dots between Chinese President Xi Jinping’s family’s vast and sudden accumulation of wealth and him assuming office. Immediately, her husband began to receive death threats by a woman who told him she represented a relative of Xi. The woman specifically conveyed threats to Forsythe’s entire family, consisting of his wife, a 6-year-old and an 8-year-old at the time. Bloomberg News urged the family not to say anything. Back in October of 2012, Fincher posted a tweet about the death threats she got after the story on Xi went live. A few hours later, a manager for Bloomberg phoned her husband said, “Get your wife to delete her tweets.” Fincher refused…
