The Big Tech Business Model

Facebook is getting about two minutes’ worth – of what it’s like to be Donald Trump every second of every day for the last almost two years.

When the myopic World of Left-Media fixates its Sauron gaze – and collectivist anger – upon you.

But Facebook is a Big Tech company – in decade-plus-long excellent Leftist standing. What could they possibly have done to elicit this all-encompassing wrath?

Everyone’s Suddenly Upset with Facebook’s Data Abuses – Because A Non-Leftist Did It

Which is, of course, a dose of hypocrisy so massive – as to send planets careening out of their respective orbits.

Facebook has been in decade-plus-long excellent Leftist standing – in no small part because they have repeatedly, generously and copiously allowed Democrats nigh unlimited access to their data. And helped Donkeys in oh-so-many other ways.

And the World of Left-Media – perpetually ignored this ongoing, blatant abuse of privacy. And its fascistic melding of Big Business and Big Government. And instead praised Obama for abilities his team didn’t possess – but were instead provided for them by Facebook (and much of the rest of Tech World).

And excoriated Hillary Clinton for losing despite the tech help – all the while again ignoring the Tech World-Democrat fusion.

Speaking of the rest of the Tech World: Just about everyone there – helps Democrats with their data. And in oh-so-many other ways.

But no one – NO ONE – does it like Google.

But no one – NO ONE – does it like Google.

So you can imagine how thrilled and relieved Google is – that it is Facebook receiving the World of Left-Media’s Two Minutes Hate on data and privacy violations.

Which begs an excellent and elementary question.

As Facebook’s Zuckerburg Heads to D.C., Where is Google’s Larry Page?: “The Google CEO avoided testifying on Capitol Hill once before, but as user data becomes a hot topic, will he stand up?”

Elsewhere in the world, Google has faced much more serious scrutiny.

Oh: And when governments aren’t so friendly to their peoples – and their privacy – Google is more than happy to assist…the governments. So long as Google continues to make a buck…well, hundreds of billions of bucks.

How Google Censors Its Results in China: “In most countries, the (Google data) spider simply collects everything it finds online and files it away in Google’s vast library. But for its Chinese site, Google has very specific rules about which pages and websites it keeps in the index, and which it leaves out.

“The (Chinese) government keeps a list of words and phrases that it has banned from local search engines, such as human rights, genocide and 4 June (the date of the Tiananmen Square massacre). The Communist party also blocks a number of swear words and sexual phrases that it believes to be ‘vulgar’ or ‘harmful.’…

“First, Google can block entire websites known to carry so-called offensive content. This allows blanket bans of large sites, particularly news websites, which may carry stories and pages that trouble officials. A basic search for any content carried on the BBC, for example, is highly unlikely to turn up any results.

“Secondly, the company will remove specific web addresses – single pages within a larger site – that are known to carry dangerous content. This method is used to effectively erase information from websites whose complete absence would leave a gaping hole, leaving users the impression of a fully functioning website that just has a few missing pieces.”

But despite all of this incessant, worldwide malfeasance – Google remains remarkably unscrutinized here in the U.S.

And it is instead comparatively-small-privacy-abusing Facebook – that is currently getting crushed here.

Google must be uproariously laughing.

If they’re smart, they are doing so very nervously…..
