Three Out Of Four Voters Believe Big Tech Has Too Much Influence On Political News

Published

on

According to a new poll published by the Washington Examiner/YouGov has found that three out of four registered voters think that social media companies have way too much pull and influence over the kind of news that users see and read, with a large swath of the population believing these companies are politically biased.

The poll found that nearly 76 percent of individuals surveyed thought that social media companies have far too much influence, compared to a measly six percent who thought they had too little. A scrawny 11 percent said they have just the right amount of influence.

via Washington Examiner:

These results come after social media giants Facebook and Twitter suppressed sharing a story about emails purportedly obtained from a computer belonging to Hunter Biden that could create political problems for his father, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, shortly before the election. Republicans have charged Twitter and Facebook with making an “in-kind contribution” to Biden’s campaign by preventing users from sharing the news on their platforms. Conservatives have been pressing Senate Republicans to hold hearings on the social media companies’ handling of this story soon.

In the same poll, the public is split on the question of whether the former vice president has been honest about his son’s business activities in other countries.

A plurality of registered voters, 39%, believe social media bans have been biased against the Republican Party. This includes a huge majority of Republicans at 82% and a plurality of independents at 37%, though only 6% of Democrats agree.

“Another 20% of registered voters believe that social media is biased against both parties. This includes 28% of Democrats and 26% of independents, though only 6% of Republicans agree,” W. James Antle III wrote in his report.

“Just 9% think social media content bans are biased against Democrats, with 2% of Republicans and 6% of independents agreeing. Even among Democrats, this figure stands at only 15%,” he continued.

Lots of individuals who participated in the survey stated they supported Congress stepping in and regulating social media companies to help curb potential bias, with 55 percent saying they should go for it, while 25 percent said not to, and 20 percent who weren’t sure.

This same poll found that 69 percent of Republicans support those kind of actions being taken.

A total of 57 percent said that social media platforms should only restrict content they know for sure is false.

At the end of the day, this should send a message to those in charge of social media companies. Stop pushing your own political agenda. You’ve become the public square of our day and age. Be fair and balanced, allowing everyone to have a voice without being censored.

SEE IT: Border Crisis at Breaking Point, Prompting TX Governor to Take Drastic Action

Things are turning troublesome in the Lone Star State.

Published

Despite constant pleas and pressure, the Biden administration continues to be unwilling to take action on the southern border, where a humanitarian crisis of nigh-biblical proportions is unfolding.

Would-be Americans from all corners of the globe are rushing the American border in Texas, overwhelming the facilities and authorities there to receive them. Compounding the issue is that fact that these migrants are largely eschewing the official naturalization process and checkpoints, and arriving whenever and wherever they can.

As border czar, Vice President Kamala Harris has been largely absent from the fray, opting to do as-of-yet-unknown work on climate change, claiming that this is a “root cause” of illegal immigration.

Now, as the border is being stormed Texas Governor Greg Abbott has had to make some desperate decisions. 

Texas Governor Greg Abbott deployed a contingent of Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Highway Patrol troopers to stop the free flow of mostly Haitian migrants from crossing the Rio Grande. The force of nearly 1,000 troopers and National Guard soldiers entered the makeshift migrant camp housing nearly 15,000 migrants under the Del Rio International Bridge.

On Saturday afternoon, the troopers used vehicles and barbed wire to block access to a weir dam stretching the Rio Grande. The migrants utilized the dam as the primary crossing point from Mexico into the makeshift camp.

Aerial photos demonstrated just what a mess the situation has become in the absence of any federal action.

The undeniable negligence of the Biden administration on this issue has been both confounding and infuriating for a majority of Americans, many of whom have publicly expressed their concerns over the capabilities of the White House over the course of the last several months.

Gabby Petito’s Fiancé on the Run in Florida Swamps, Say Authorities

Should Laundrie escape or take his own life, there could be little hope left of bringing Gabby home.

Published

on

The saga surrounding the disappearance of Gabby Petito continues to evolve this weekend, in strange and ever-more dramatic ways, and it could lead to yet another layer of tragedy.

Petito and her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, were on a cross-country road trip when her family lost contact with her.  Soon after, Laundrie returned home to Florida, sans Gabby, and her parent promptly filed a missing persons report.  Laundrie, unconscionably, refused to cooperate with investigators who were now looking for Petito.

Then, in a twist that could add exponential sorrow to the story, Laundrie has gone on the run after leaving his parents’ home on Tuesday – something that his family did not reveal to authorities until Friday.

Now, the hunt is on for the prime suspect in Petito’s disappearance.

Police spent Saturday searching a “vast” Florida preserve near the Laundrie family’s home after they said late Friday his whereabouts were now unknown, too. Late Saturday, police said they were suspending the search due to darkness and would begin again Sunday morning.

“Be advised that the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie are currently unknown,” an attorney for the family said Friday. “The FBI is currently at the Laundrie residence removing property to assist in locating Brian. As of now the FBI is now looking for both Gabby and Brian.”

Laundrie, 23, has not been seen since Tuesday, according to police and the family’s lawyer.

North Port Police said Saturday morning that they were searching for Laundrie in “the vast Carlton Reserve,” a 24,565-acre preserve north of his home in North Port.

If Laundrie were to evade authorities, or end his own life while on the run, there could be little hope left of finding out what exactly happened to Gabby Petito.
