Big data knows all about you! – John Stossel

Published

From StosselTV

The government is tracking you.

Here’s HOW they do it and WHY you should care.

@NaomiBrockwellTV has a popular YouTube channel where she points out that the government constantly spies on us, using data that apps collect via our phones.

But these apps “make my life easier,” I push back, “Convenience matters!”

“But privacy is important,” explains Brockwell. “The government is purchasing all this data about us. They’re creating records about all of us, and that’s a really scary thing.” “That data is forever … You have no control over what societal norms might change in the next 10 years and that data suddenly becomes incriminating. You’re basically making a bet that you and the people with the guns will always stay on good terms.”

In my video above, she explains why that’s not a good bet to make.

Media Bias: Subtle (and Not So Subtle) Ways Journalists Slant the News

Published on

From StosselTV

Reporters often suck up to Democrats, but interrupt and cut off Republicans.

Hostile interruptions are easy to notice. Other media bias is more subtle. Until this year, the media always covered Iowa Caucus victory speeches. But when Trump won, CNN cut away from his speech

Some say it’s not responsible to broadcast Trump live because he lies so much. But Biden lies too. We reporters can point that out. That’s better than censoring candidates’ speeches. The media should let us listen and decide for ourselves.

After 40+ years of reporting, I now understand the importance of limited government and personal freedom.
