Alarming Biased Media
« on: February 26, 2021, 09:30:08 AM »

While, when  I saw this headline, I expected it would be the normal screeching all about evil conservative domestic terrorists with nary a mention of the left, what really raised my eyebrow was:

Quote
Working with Deep Discovery, an artificial intelligence company, AP also helped build a classification algorithm that matched officials to accounts on the right-wing aligned Parler, a social media platform that recently returned after being taken offline for several weeks. AP reporters hand-verified each match using an archived Parler dataset. That archive of 183 million posts and 13 million user profiles, provided in advance of publication by New York University researcher Max Aliopoulios, was captured between August 2018 and Jan. 10, 2021, when Parler was taken offline.

AP also surveyed officials’ use of alternate social media sites such as Gab and Telegram, whose active users have soared in recent weeks since Twitter and Facebook barred people from posting extremist content and disinformation.


Why don't they just come out and say that they are actually 1950's Pravda? What are "unbiased journalists", not at some fringe news network, but the AP, doing  "helping" build "classification databases" of apparently just conservatives?
