A Censura das "FAANG".

FAANG é acrônimo para as ações mais valorizadas do mundo: Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix e Google (do grupo Alphabet). É assim que o mercado financeiro chama essas super poderosas empresas.

Essas empresas têm poderes econômicos, políticos e culturais nunca vistos na história da humanidade.

O site Infowars divulgou documento de como essas empresas, especialmente Facebook e Google censuram e tentam dominar as ideologias políticas. Mas tem também a censura tecnológica da China.

Aqui vai parte do texto da Inforwars e em seguida dois vídeos sobre o assunto:

EMERGENCY: BIG TECH’S PLOT TO KILL FREE SPEECH REVEALED

Online digital rights are in turmoil and we must act now


In association with Mike Adams, Infowars has published a detailed master compendium on censorship that will serve as a roadmap for lawmakers and for President Trump as we begin the fight to return the battleground of ideas to a level playing field.

The original document is embedded below and should be read in full. What follows below is a brief summary of the major talking points of this document.
Slaves to the algorithm
Algorithms are the most pernicious form of censorship because the target cannot conclusively prove they are being censored yet experience the impact of censorship anyway.
As Robert Epstein has documented, “Google’s search algorithm can easily shift the voting preferences of undecided voters by 20 percent or more—up to 80 percent in some demographic groups—with virtually no one knowing they are being manipulated.”
Epstein asserts that Google has the power to flip over 25% of elections worldwide and that “The search giant’s algorithms are manipulating people every minute of every day.”
By favoring certain search results over others, Epstein and his team discovered that Google could, “boost the proportion of people who favored any candidate by between 37 and 63 percent after just one search session.”
In other words, it’s entirely possible that Google determined the winner of the largest democratic election in history and could do so over and over again.
During its back and forth conversation with CNN, Facebook admitted that it artificially demotes Infowars content to censor our reach.
“We work hard to find the right balance between encouraging free expression and promoting a safe and authentic community, and we believe that down-ranking inauthentic content strikes that balance,” said Facebook spokeswoman Lauren Svensson. “In other words, we allow people to post it as a form of expression, but we’re not going to show it at the top of News Feed.”
As Mike Adams’ master report documents, Facebook has already deplatformed countless prominent natural health and conservative political channels.
Google intensifies its crackdown
Over the course of the last year, we have also noticed a clear change in Google’s search results in which mainstream media articles that denigrate Infowars appear well above Infowars in search results, even when one specifically searches for an exact headline from Infowars.
Google is already directing teams of employees to flag content that is deemed “upsetting” or “offensive” and bury such websites in order to “improve the quality of its search results”.
“The new “upsetting-offensive” flag instructs quality raters to “flag to all web results that contain upsetting or offensive content from the perspective of users in your locale, even if the result satisfies the user intent,” according to the Associated Press.
One of the examples cited that would get flagged is a website that criticizes the religion of Islam.
Google-owned YouTube has also deliberately ranked legacy media-produced videos above independently produced videos about major news events, even when the independently produced videos are more popular.
The tyranny of partisan “fact checkers”
Google has also hired so-called “fact checkers” from the Southern Poverty Law Center to police content on YouTube. The SPLC is a hyper-partisan left-wing organization whose business model revolves almost exclusively around fanning the flames of hysteria about “hate speech” and defaming good people as extremists.
As we have previously documented, another fact checker being used by Google, Snopes.com, presents itself as a non-partisan outfit, yet has proven itself to be a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party and the left on numerous occasions.
Snopes previously tried to “debunk” claims that the New York Times had colluded with Clinton’s campaign by warning them in advance about potentially negative stories that were about to be published, despite Wikileaks emails proving this to be true on two separate occasions.
As the Daily Caller reported, Kim Lacapria, Snopes’ main political “fact checker,” describes herself as “openly left-leaning” and a liberal. She has previously equated Tea Party conservatives with jihadists.

É de arrepiar tais notícias. Chega fazer-nos pensar sobre tudo o que diz as Escritura, e tudo o que nos disse os santos. O capitalismo enriquece muita gente, mas também enriqueceu aquelas pessoas que lá no fundo de suas almas amavam o mal. Todavia, o mais tenebroso nisso tudo são duas coisas: primeiro, que só por meio da internet conseguimos ficar sabendo dessas coisas, coisas, aliás, que muitos intelectuais lá de fora já vinham falando para o mundo. segundo, que mesmo diante de tudo isso, não vemos nenhum canal de TV católico expondo essa situação e nem mesmo trazendo ao debate.

O blogueiro é bastante culto, isso está mostrado em suas publicações, mas seria possível que o blogger pudesse traduzir os artigos postados em inglês?
É que são muito valiosas as informações, mas em se tratando de um blog voltado para o público de fala portuguesa é coerente que haja tradução ao menos.

Eduardo

P.S Não vi nenhum comentário sobre os artigos, que não fossem expressados em português.

Caro Eduardo, obrigado pelo comentário.
No início do blog eu fazia traduções mas me tomavam muito tempo. Depois passei usar o Google Translator mas as traduções eram ruins. Resolvi então deixar em inglês.

Realmente não tenho tempo para tradução de qualidade, meu caro. Faço um resumo do assunto e deixo a nornotí no original.

Grande abraço,
Pedro Erik
