Fox News regular upset Google will rank by accuracy: ‘Let the public decide what’s the truth’

Published

on

A frequent Fox News guest who publishes a climate-change denial blog is upset that Google’s popular web-search engine is being re-engineered to direct users to more “trustworthy” websites, saying “Let the public decide what’s the truth,” in video captured by Media Matters for America.

Marc Morano, who helms the Climate Depot website dedicated to dismissing scientific consensus on global climate change, told a reporter for Fox News that Google’s proposed changes will mean the tech giant “… is basically saying that truth is what a government agency says it is.”

The proposed changes at Google would move websites up in the rankings based upon truth and not popularity.

Morano, who previously worked for Rush Limbaugh and climate change-denying Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), says this would be put him at a disadvantage.

“We call ourselves ‘consensus busters’ because they [climate scientists] are so often wrong,” he explained. “We are the voice of the dissidents. We are the voice of the scientists who are speaking about against this so-called consensus.”

Morano was recently the subject of a documentary, Merchants of Doubt, which highlighted his ties to the fossil fuel industry.

“Their top three candidates are white, career politicians in their 60s and 70s, which I have nothing against except they (Democrats) certainly do,” Conway reportedly told the crowd. “I don’t know why the heck the Democratic party electorate is so racist and sexist. I can’t figure it out.”

Betsy DeVos’ DOE threatens to cut university funding for positive portrayal of Islam

Published

on

The U.S Department of Education threatened to pull federal funding from a Middle East studies course jointly run by Duke University and the University of North Carolina because it portrays Islam too positively.

The DOE ordered the universities to change their program or lose its federal grant money. In a letter to UNC, the department criticized the program, arguing that topics like Iranian art and film have “little or no relevance” to the Middle East studies program. The letter also argues that the program “appears to lack balance” because its programs are not focused on the discrimination faced by “religious minorities in the Middle East," including Christians and Jews.
