Left-wing media bias has taken over once-neutral Wikipedia, just as co-founder Larry Sanger lamented earlier this year, according to five studies reviewing the content of the online encyclopedia.

The studies have concluded Wikipedia is even more left-biased than the Encyclopedia Britannica, left-wing indoctrination is pushed harder by leftist editors, liberal media is more pronounced in the mentions on that site, the reviews of politicians relies are left-wing sources, and conservative editors on the website are six times more likely to be sanctioned for their updates.

1. Harvard Study: Wikipedia More Left-Biased Than Britannica

While both are slanted toward liberal views, the study find Wikipedia is more biased toward Democrats.

“Using a matched sample of pairs of articles from Britannica and Wikipedia, we show that, overall, Wikipedia articles are more slanted towards Democrat than Britannica articles, as well as more biased,” the study’s abstract reads.

Notably, Wikipedia becomes less biased the more a post is edited and reviewed, and the study also found the most liberal-biased entries are ones least edited or reviewed.

2. Harvard Study: Indoctrination Pushed Harder Left and by Leftists

The same researchers above followed up their study with another one that found the most frequent editors are leftists and they are also far more biased partisans, according to their study.

3. Wikipediocracy: Top News Outlets Cited Are Mostly Left-Wing

Established leftist outlets The New York Times and BBC News are the most cited sources, around 200,000 stories. The Guardian, an equally left-wing outlet, is cited third at almost 100,000 citations.

Among the top 10 most-cited, only one was right-leaning.

4. Wikipediocracy/AllSides: U.S. Politicians Pages Rely on Left-Wing Sources

Using AllSides and Media Bias/Fact Check (MBFC) ratings, a Wikipediocracy user found stories on American politicians rely mostly on left-wing media. The ratio is almost 3- or 4-to-1 left wing vs. right wing. And even centrist sources are used to the same ratio vs. right wing ones, per the analysis.

5. The Critic: Right-Wing Editors 6 Times More Likely to Be Sanctioned

Those espousing right-wing views on topics like politics, abortion, gun control, race, and intelligence were six times more likely to be sanctions by the “Supreme Court” of the Wikipedia editors, especially those reviewing things about President Donald Trump.

Trump: Fox News ‘Virtually Unwatchable’

Trump: Fox News 'Virtually Unwatchable' Trump: Fox News 'Virtually Unwatchable'

Sunday, 29 November 2020 11:38 AM

President Donald Trump ramped up criticism of Fox News over the weekend, calling it "virtually unwatchable.”

In a tweet, Trump directed conservatives to tune to other outlets, including Newsmax.

“@Fox News daytime is virtually unwatchable, especially during the weekends,” he wrote Saturday. “Watch @OANN, @Newsmax or almost anything else. You won't have to suffer through endless interviews with Democrats, and even worse!"

Trump's latest tweet highlights a progressively rocky relationship between the president and his formerly favorite news outlet.

For several months Trump has tweeted criticisms of the conservative network, at times calling them "Fake News" and "anti-Trump."

"@FoxNews is no longer the same. We miss the great Roger Ailes. You have more anti-Trump people, by far, than ever before. Looking for a new outlet!," he tweeted in May.

According to Axios, Trump advisers think Fox News made a mistake with an early call of Joe Biden's win in Arizona. That enraged Trump, and gave him something tangible to use in his attacks on the network.

“He plans to wreck Fox. No doubt about it," Axios quoted one source saying.

By Cathy Burke | Sunday, 29 November 2020 08:04 AM

Newly reelected Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., a former intelligence officer who worked for Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, is reportedly on the list for Joe Biden’s CIA director.

The New York Times reported that Slotkin is among a number of possibilities that also include former CIA director Michael Morell, Thomas Donilon, a former national security adviser in the Obama administration, Sue Gordon, a former principal deputy director of national intelligence, and Vincent Stewart, who led the Defense Intelligence Agency.

Slotkin, 44, who did three tours in Iraq as a CIA officer before working in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and for the National Security Council, suggests she’s happy where she is, the Detroit Free Press reported.

“While Congresswoman Slotkin appreciates being named alongside such qualified candidates to lead the CIA, she is honored to serve the people of Michigan’s 8th District, and looks forward to doing so for a second term in Congress,” Slotkin's spokeswoman, Hannah Lindow, told the Free Press on Saturday.

Politico has reported that Slotkin is a moderate who recently advised Democrats that President Donald Trump has a loyal base for good reason.

“[Trump] doesn’t talk down to anybody. He is who he is, but he doesn’t talk down to anyone," she told Politico. "And I think that there is a certain voter out there because of that who identifies with him and appreciates him."

The CIA’s current director, Gina Haspel, appointed by Trump in 2018, was the first woman to be confirmed by the Senate to lead the agency.

Roger Stone to Newsmax TV: Evidence Denial Is a Media ‘Stunt’

Roger Stone to Newsmax TV: Evidence Denial Is a Media 'Stunt' (Newsmax TV's "The Count")

By Eric Mack | Saturday, 28 November 2020 10:33 PM

The breathless claims of "no evidence" of voter fraud is a "mainstream media stunt," according to Roger Stone on Newsmax TV.

"I think the mainstream media stunt of saying there's no evidence whatsoever of voter fraud is patently absurd, because the evidence is not only overwhelming, it's also compelling," Stone told Saturday's "The Count" hosted by Tom Basile and Mark Halperin.

Stone pointed to the "old fashioned, urban, Democrat vote-stealing machine" and "serious evidence of cyber manipulation of the vote."

Asked by Halperin if President Donald Trump does not succeed in his legal challenge, who could beat him in the Republican Party in 2024?

"That would be no one," Stone said. "This president is even more popular than the great Ronald Reagan was."

Stone added Reagan's GOP approval rating was a "marvel" in the high 80s.

"Donald Trump has approval ratings in the mid-90s, which I've never seen in American politics," Stone added.

"The grassroots of the Republican Party loves Donald Trump."

Steve Forbes to Newsmax TV: Dem Win in Georgia Will Wreck Stock Market

Steve Forbes to Newsmax TV: Dem Win in Georgia Will Wreck Stock Market (Newsmax TV/"The Count")

By Sandy Fitzgerald | Saturday, 28 November 2020 09:45 PM

The upcoming Georgia Senate runoff races are "absolutely critical," because if Republicans don't keep control of the Senate, Democrats will push through massive tax increases on capital gains that will "help wreck the stock market," publisher and author Steve Forbes warned on Newsmax TV Saturday.

"I hope we've learned from what happened in this recent election in terms of making sure those ballots are looked at before they're opened, so we can see which ones are valid and which are not," Forbes told Newsmax TV's "The Count." "The Democrats are planning to dump in hundreds of thousands of those kinds of ballots. We've got to be on guard about that."

Losing control of the Senate would mean devastating taxes all around, including business and individual taxes that will hurt the economy, Forbes added.

"The stock market will lose several thousand points very quickly," he said.

Forbes also ridiculed Joe Biden for his comments that the market doesn't affect everyday Americans' lives.

"His ignorance on the stock market does not bode well for his understanding of economics…what Biden knows would fit on the thumb of (President) Donald Trump," said Forbes. "The market wouldn't be doing well if they didn't think the economy was making gains…as for the stock market meaning nothing, tell that to 100 million Americans who have IRAs, 401Ks, and the like."

Forbes also cast doubt on former Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen becoming the nation's next Treasury Secretary if Biden's election is confirmed, because "she thinks you can print money and that'll create prosperity."

"She will work very closely with Chairman (Jay) Powell at the Federal Reserve to try to get around federal blocking, especially, by the Senate," said Forbes. "They'll try to use the Federal Reserve as a way to bail out states like Illinois, New York and New Jersey, which have been mismanaged."

Forbes also said he's concerned with how Biden would handle foreign affairs, particularly with China and Iran.

"The fact we got rid of, or somebody got rid of, their chief nuclear scientist in Iran shows that the Arabs and the Israelis and others don't want Iran dominating the Middle East and the oil fields there," said Forbes.

The woke Democrats thought they were inspiring their base, but all of the gains by Republicans in the election were a result the GOP being awoken, according to conservative director and actor Scott Baio on Newsmax TV.

"I think it was huge," Baio told Saturday's "The Count" hosted by Tom Basile and Mark Halperin. "We're being censored, Mark.

"TV shows are all woke. There is nowhere you can go in the culture anymore – movies, television, music – where you're not being lectured to or being accused of something. It's completely out of control."

President Donald Trump connected to real Americans, Baio said.

"He talks straight; there's no gray in him," he continued.

"I don't need to take out my political decoder ring every time he speaks. I think that in itself is Trump's connection with people."

Arizona Republicans to Hold Meeting on Nov. 3 Election

Arizona Republicans to Hold Meeting on Nov. 3 Election

Saturday, 28 November 2020 08:38 PM

Arizona Republicans have scheduled a meeting at a hotel in downtown Phoenix on Monday to discuss the Nov. 3 election.

The event was billed as a “fact-finding hearing" featuring members of Trump's legal team and members of the Arizona Legislature, but top leaders of the Republican-controlled Legislature told The Associated Press that the planned gathering was not an official legislative event.

According to press release by state Rep. Mark Finchem, R-Oro-Valley, the gathering is intended “to hear testimony and view evidence related to allegations of electoral compromise related to the 2020 election."

A similar event was held Wednesday in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

No evidence of fraud or hacking of voting machines has emerged during this election in Arizona.

Five challenges have been filed in Maricopa County Superior Court in Phoenix since Nov. 3 and four of those have been dismissed. An initial hearing on the fifth is scheduled Monday, the same day as the hotel event and the state election canvass at the state Capitol.

Among the Trump supporters using social media to publicize the Arizona event were state GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward and U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz. “I will be there," Gosar declared on Twitter.

It wasn't clear whether the Trump attorneys would be present in Phoenix or addressing the gathering remotely.

On Tuesday, Republican Gov. Doug Ducey acknowledged for the first time that President-elect Joe Biden won Arizona.

The Arizona Legislature is not in session and Senate President Karen Fann said neither she nor House Speaker Rusty Bowers, authorized fellow Republican lawmakers to hold a hearing at the Capitol on the election.

“So they found a site off-site to hold it," Fann said.

The planned gathering drew scorn from some Democrats.

“Might as well have a boat parade and call it a legislative hearing. This unsanctioned unofficial circus sideshow will have no bearing or impact on @JoeBiden’s victory in Arizona,” the Democratic Caucus of the Arizona House said in its Twitter feed.

Pennsylvania High Court Rejects Lawsuit Challenging Election

MARC LEVY Saturday, 28 November 2020 07:58 PM

Pennsylvania's highest court on Saturday night threw out a lower court's order preventing the state from certifying dozens of contests on its Nov. 3 election ballot in the latest lawsuit filed by Republicans challenging the vote count in the battleground state.

The state Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, threw out the three-day-old order, saying the underlying lawsuit was filed months after the law allowed for challenges to Pennsylvania's expansive year-old mail-in voting law.

The state's attorney general, Democrat Josh Shapiro, called the court's decision “another win for Democracy.”

The week-old lawsuit, led by Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly of northwestern Pennsylvania, had challenged the state's mail-in voting law as unconstitutional.

As a remedy, Kelly and the other Republican plaintiffs had sought to either throw out the 2.5 million mail-in ballots submitted under the law — most of them by Democrats — or to wipe out the election results and direct the state's Republican-controlled Legislature to pick Pennsylvania's presidential electors.

Commonwealth Court Judge Patricia McCullough, elected as a Republican in 2009, had issued the order Wednesday to halt certification of any remaining contests, including apparently contests for Congress.

A day earlier, Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, said he had certified Democrat Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential election in Pennsylvania. Biden beat President Donald Trump by more than 80,000 votes in Pennsylvania, a state Trump had won in 2016.

Wolf had appealed McCullough's decision to the state Supreme Court, saying there was no “conceivable justification” for it.

House GOP: Censure Dem for Complaint in Trump Legal Team

House GOP: Censure Dem for Complaint in Trump Legal Team House GOP: Censure Dem for Complaint in Trump Legal Team Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J, (A)

By Sandy Fitzgerald | Saturday, 28 November 2020 02:22 PM

House Republicans are calling for the censure of Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J, who filed complaints with state bars seeking the disbarment of Rudy Giuliani and 22 other Trump campaign lawyers over the lawsuits they filed in several states after the election.

The resolution was introduced by GOP Reps. Andy Biggs and Debbie Lesko of Arizona, Warren Davidson of Ohio, Andy Harris, of Maryland, and Randy Weber of Texas, reports Fox News.

Pascrell last week filed complaints in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, New York, and Nevada saying the attorneys had filed "frivolous lawsuits" and were trying to help President Donald Trump "steal the election and dismantle democracy."

He also accused Giuliani specifically of "conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation: and accused him of helping Trump commit "sinister arson" by undermining public confidence in the election process.

In their resolution, the Republicans say Trump's campaign has the legal right to sue and to ensure that all legal votes are counted, and to challenge illegal votes.

The resolution calls on the House to censure Pascrell for "conduct that threatens the livelihoods of American citizens in a way that is not befitting an elected Member of the House of Representatives.”

Pascrell Saturday called the Republicans seeking the censure "fascist wannabees" and accuse them of being "complicit" in Trump's behavior

"Donald Trump and his minions are trying to steal the election after getting blown out by President-elect Joe Biden," Pascrell said in a statement. "His lawyers filing frivolous lawsuits in taxpayer-funded courts are accomplices to Trump’s assault on American democracy and they must be held accountable."

Biden Considering Cindy McCain for UK Ambassador Role

By Sandy Fitzgerald | Saturday, 28 November 2020 12:31 PM

Joe Biden is eyeing Cindy McCain as a potential U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, according to multiple sources.

“It’s hers if she wants it,” a source told The Times of London about McCain, the widow of the late Sen. John McCain. “She delivered Arizona. They know that.”

Biden was the first Democrat to win Arizona since 1996.

McCain, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, is a known Anglophile. She and former Sen. Jeff Flake are both being credited for endorsements that helped Biden win in their state. Both have been floated for posts in the Biden administration, reports The Hill, with McCain being considered for a top ambassador role or another diplomatic post.

She currently serves on Biden's transition team on the advisory board. She has never held public office but is said to have had a front-row seat to international diplomacy while traveling with her husband, a frequent target of barbs from Trump.

McCain told ABC's "The View," which her daughter Meghan co-hosts, that the Biden administration will be "all-inclusive and there is a role for Republicans."

Biden has also signaled that he could reach across the aisle and name Republicans to key posts in his administration, including in his Cabinet.

Pa. Judge Opines State’s Mail-in Ballot Procedures Likely Illegal

Pa. Judge Opines State's Mail-in Ballot Procedures Likely Illegal a graphic showing a 2020 pennsylvania ballot box with votes flying into it (Dreamstime)

Bob Van Voris Saturday, 28 November 2020 12:33 PM

A Pennsylvania judge who Nov. 25 blocked the state from going forward with additional steps that might be required to certify the state's presidential vote said in a written opinion that changes to the Pennsylvania's mail-in balloting procedures were likely illegal.

The order is delayed while the Pennsylvania Supreme Court considers the case, filed by Pennsylvania Republicans, on an expedited basis. Friday night's opinion simply provides the judge's reasoning for ordering a temporary delay.

It is unclear exactly what further steps in the process can be delayed, but the plaintiffs suggested there were several, including the assembly of electors. The Electoral College vote to certify the Nov. 3 election results does not take place until Dec. 14.

A federal appeals court Friday had rejected President Donald Trump's attempt to revive a lawsuit in which his campaign was seeking to undo Pennsylvania's certification Joe Biden's victory in the state.

A three-judge panel resoundingly dismissed the campaign's goal of striking out tens of thousands of ballots, saying there were no claims of fraud in the lawsuit, or proof.

The decision potentially tees the case up for the U.S. Supreme Court, and the president has openly mused the 6-3 conservative majority could deliver the election to him. But most legal experts doubt the high court will take up a case which will not change the race. Biden would still win the presidency without Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes, and Georgia, Michigan and Nevada have also certified results in his favor.

"Voters, not lawyers, choose the president," the federal appeals court in Philadelphia said.
"Ballots, not briefs, decide elections. The ballots here are governed by Pennsylvania election law. No federal law requires poll watchers or specifies where they must live or how close they may stand when votes are counted. Nor does federal law govern whether to count ballots with minor state-law defects or let voters cure those defects."

In its ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit took apart the Trump campaign's legal arguments, as it refused to force the lower-court judge who dismissed the case to allow the campaign to file a revised complaint.

Trump is trying to invalidate tens of thousands of mail-in ballots and asking the appeals court for an emergency order blocking "the effects" of Pennsylvania's certification of votes.

Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis said in a tweet the campaign would appeal to the Supreme Court.

The Trump campaign brought an expedited appeal of the lower-court judge's ruling. U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann on Saturday rejected both the request to file a new complaint and the idea of blocking certification, saying the campaign’s suit was speculative and based on "strained legal arguments" that were without merit.

The combined rulings from Brann and the appeals court are the highest-profile courtroom defeats for Trump since the Nov. 3 election. Suits filed by the campaign and its GOP allies have failed in Michigan, Georgia, Nevada and Arizona as judges declined to toss out millions of votes based on claims tied to a vast and implausible conspiracy theory about corrupt Democratic election workers.

The appeals panel, with all three members appointed by Republican presidents, said the campaign's ultimate goal of setting aside 1.5 million mail-in ballots from the defendant counties for an audit and "statistical analysis" to look for improper ballots would not be fair to voters, especially when there is no allegation of fraud in the complaint.

"There is no allegation of fraud (let alone proof) to justify harming those millions of voters as well as other candidates," the appeals court said.

Alan Dershowitz to Newsmax TV: Reject Warnock’s ‘Bigoted Views’

Alan Dershowitz to Newsmax TV: Reject Warnock's 'Bigoted Views' (Newsmax TV's "Saturday Report")

By Eric Mack | Saturday, 28 November 2020 10:27 AM

Considering himself a liberal Democrat, Alan Dershowitz on Newsmax TV said he prefers a Democrat-held Senate, but not at the expense of voting for a "bigot" in Rev. Raphael Warnock.

"Look, I'm a liberal Democrat and I prefer to see the Democrats control the Senate, but not at the cost of having Rev. Warnock as the United States senator," Dershowitz told "Saturday Report." "Here's a man who has condemned the military, who has condemned Israel, calling it a country that murders Palestinian unarmed children like the birds of prey. That's the blood libel."

Rev. Warnock is facing incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., in one of the two Jan. 5 Senate runoffs in Georgia. Warnock did edge out Loeffler 32.9% to 25.91% in the Nov. 3 election, but Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., sapped 19.95% of the GOP support and the winner failed to reach 50%, forcing the runoff.

"Unless Rev. Warnock changes his views, he can't count on Democrats like me to support him," Dershowitz told host Carl Higbie. "I'd rather see a Republican I may disagree with in the Senate than a Democrat who has expressed the kind of bigoted views about Israel and about people who serve in the military.

"He said you can't serve God and the military at the same time. And he said that in Georgia, a place that is home to Gold Star families and military bases and is home to so many Americans who served with distinction and protected us all from them taking our liberty away from us."
