I’ve long been a fan of Fox News, especially with the lame lack of alternative options of TV news here in the UK.
Unfortunately they pulled the plug on the channel here in the UK back in 2017 when it left Sky, the only widely available paid satelite TV service we have over here. So I’ve had to make do with a patchy supply of short clips on their YouTube channel ever since.
This doesn’t mean I have been totally out of the loop, as I regularly read opinions on the channel via my army of grassroots fellow conservatives over in the USA on the usual assortment of popular social media platforms.
It would appear that the attempts of Fox News to provide coverage of the 2020 US Presidential elections really stuck the middle finger up at their core audience, and instead they had the really bright idea of instead pandering to the morons who for years have openly mocked their news channel, and slagged it off based on perceptions they gained despite rarely if ever even watching it.
As a result there have been widespread calls for people to boycott Fox News and it’s sister channels, and for people to switch their news viewing habits to Newsmax + One America News (OANN) instead. Continue reading “Fox News Fails”
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”
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”
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”
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……

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!”
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?”
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.

The latest in a long line of ridiculous censorship measures by the big social networks…. Facebook admits to banning people for saying they’re proud to be English.
