Facebook and Twitter in Trouble Again

For the past couple of years many questions have been asked about the impartiality of well known popular social media companies.

Over the course of tonight’s dinner and flitting between eating and checking my twitter timeline I noticed that Facebook and Twitter have done it again, getting it in the neck from a number of prominent figures, with Senator Hawley and Senator Ted Cruz leading the charge.

This time they have apparently censored an article by a well known American media outlet called the New York Post, which exposed some questionable financial dealings by an immediate family member of Democrat Presidential Candidate Joe Biden. Continue reading “Facebook and Twitter in Trouble Again”

Original Messageboard Down

It has come to my attention that the original ConservativeChitChat messageboard chat forum powered by YaBB has been knocked out of action.

I discovered this last week when I needed some stuff off the classic thread of posts highlighting what a scam climate change is.

I suspect the issues is something to do with a recent server upgrade the webhosts did the other month that probably messed with the CGI / Perl settings or maybe the channel permissions settings, and I’ll see if I can fix it when I have more time to poke around on the server.

The new messageboard forum integrated into this wordpress blog installation still works perfectly fine (apart from the fact there’s some spam to clean up off it again).

Elf On A Shelf Look-a-like Does it Again

Lastnight there was news that elf-on-the-shelf impersonator and fake comedian Kathy Griffin made threatening comments against President Trump on Social Media. Again.

This is of course not the first time the horrible woman has done something worthy of requiring a little chat with the secret service for doing something that risks jail time for threatening the President. Continue reading “Elf On A Shelf Look-a-like Does it Again”

British Media Needs To Be More Diverse

Yesterday you may have noticed from reading Twitter that the British Media didn’t exactly endear themselves to the public with the way they handled Dominic Cummings’ trip oop north to stay closer to family while suffering with the virus thing that’s going on in order to make sure their autistic kid had someone familiar around should things hit the fan further.

The British public were so not amused with the way the media handled the incident that they got the hashtag #ScumMedia trending on the platform.

This frustration is, I guess, a problem that us Conservative types (and UKIP / English Democrat / Brexit Party types) have had going on for a number of years now: A severe lack of diversity in the choice of media available to us, especially when it comes to broadcast media (and not the BAME/LGBT type of  politically correct diversity).

All the news channels available on television seem to have a slightly patronising “liberal elite” New Labour / Liberal Demcrat / Green Party / SNP / Wet Remoaner Tory / leftist / centrist bias going on. Continue reading “British Media Needs To Be More Diverse”

Piers Morgan Picks Fight With Candace Owens

Saw this in my timeline, and it’d be rude not to share……..

Having seen Candace knocking around on social media for a number of years I know how switched on and what a fiery bad-ass she is when dealing with those foolish enough to challenge her.
Piers probably hasn’t been knocked around this hard since that incident with Jeremy Clarkson some years back……

Oops, Joe Did It Again!

When I got up today I didn’t have long to wait (5minutes) before seeing what stupid thing Joe Biden was going to say next in his race to be the Democrat’s prime contender to be Presidential Candidate against President Trump.

The reactions were pretty much as you’d expect…… Continue reading “Oops, Joe Did It Again!”

Nevada Endorsement Shenanigans?

While poking around on Twitter lastnight I stumbled upon this thread suggesting foul play was afoot with the endorsements for Congress in Nevada…..

Chipping in to try get an answer…..

Here’s what happened next….. Continue reading “Nevada Endorsement Shenanigans?”

Miserablist News Host Tries to Silence POTUS on Social Media

Yesterday the miserablist co-host of MSNBC’s breakfast show was rightfully receiving a load of stick in her attempts to silence the leader of the free world (President Trump) on Twitter.

Naturally this did not go down too well in a country that places free speech at the top of it’s constitution.

NYC Mayor Tweets Message Hitler Would Be Proud Of

Overnight there was a bit of a fuss being raised because of a tweet made by the Democrat Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio (aka “Mayor Blah de Blah”) that he could probably have phrased a bit better……

Naturally, the reactions didn’t go well for him….. Continue reading “NYC Mayor Tweets Message Hitler Would Be Proud Of”
