Christine Blasey Ford’s Rate My Professors conveniently blank

Christine Blasey Fords Rate My Professors conveniently blank

As soon as Christine Blasey Ford went on the record, it became known that she was a professor in the field of psychology at the Palo Alto University who also taught at Stanford University. Recent reports circulated on Twitter and Facebook of how students brutalized Professor Ford in their reviews. However what garnered an equal amount of attention was the censorship of this article. And perhaps Rate My Professors is also guilty of censorship.

The article in question was published on TheFederalistPapers.org by the site’s ringleader, Steve Straub. However Miguelifornia was unknowingly tweeting fakenews. It’s understandable how someone who believes is QAnon would so willingly overlook critical details, mainly that this isn’t the Christine Ford that is accusing Brett Kavanaugh.

She’s currently a professor in the Social Work Department at California State University – Fullerton.

Christine Blasey Ford does not teach at Fullerton. Meaning, this article is connecting the wrong person to the Kavanaugh accuser. This is a case of shoddy journalism. Now the issue of Twitter censorship is real. It also appears Twitter does not like Mr. Straub’s site.

What do the reviews actually say?

Christine Ford has been a professor so having taught students, its more than likely she has true reviews that can actually be found. Except she doesn’t. The two pages on Rate My Professors, the gold standard website for professor reviews are both void of reviews.

Palo Alto University page

Stanford University page

No reviews could be found on lesser competitors or indirect competitors. Stephanie Dube Dwilson of Heavy noted:

It’s not known if they never had reviews or if reviews were removed, but there are no reviews on her two pages.

Key Questions

So how do reviews just not exist for a professor. It’s understandable how the Stanford page may be blank, but the Palo Alto page should, in theory have some reviews. So this invites speculation as to whether Rate My Professors wiped her page clean after she went public and before the internet could vet her page for curiosity. If she had a 4.5 would her review still be up there? If they were worried about spam posts to smear Ford, why not simply lock her page. It does a disservice to students who are deciding to take her to censor information that could be used in a class scheduling decision. Why does Rate My Professors even care to intervene on Christine Ford’s behalf? It’s completely understandable to lock the page, like Wikipedia often does on controversial topics.

Final Thoughts

It is unlikely any student ratings would have been germane to Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Brett Kavanaugh. However, they could have undermined her character. Suppose more than one student rated her and their reviews said that she was a liar. Or what if a review said that she sexually harassed a student. This information could have undermined her accusations against the Supreme nominee, as opposed to her being a tough grader or even a poor educator. However the issue here has less to do with how the reviews impact the situation at-hand and more about how Rate My Professors likely wiped reviews in an effort to minimize scrutiny in regards to Ford.

    I can answer this, as I was lucky to click a link to her ratings the day her name was announced. They did in fact quietly remove the reviews.

    There were maybe 6 or 7 reviews and they were polarized. About 3 good and 3 bad from what I remember. The bad ones said she was an annoying grader, made her seem like a bitch, and one said something along the lines of being unhinged. The others were your typical positive reviews. If I remember correctly, the latest reviews were posted in 2014. The earliest, 2011?

      I saw one from 2016 and one from 2017. They are now gone.

    The score on her reviews (or lack thereof) prompted me to make a face similar to them.

    It does not really matter, does it?…. Giving the fact that we all know that she lies and that she is an extreme Leftist who associates with Hillary’s lawyer and other “great” people.

    She’s a total liar. Wonder how much she was paid for this bs?

    Another interesting thing is that the wayback machine (internet archive) only shows archives saved twice, starting on Sept. 16, 2018 and ending Sept.20, 2018. This is referring to the California State University, Fullerton entry, which is now being claimed as a “different” Christine Ford, but I am not buying it. They also scrubbed the bad reviews from that page as well.

Thomas Sowell nails the fact versus feelings problem

There are many reasons why Thomas Sowell is my favorite conservative thinker. This ideas resonate so clearly with the right mindset. His arguments are practically irrefutable.

This particular quote from whoever runs his Twitter account rings so true today. Mainstream media’s programming has affected both the left and the right, but this component of their onslaught on leftist sensibilities is arguably the biggest problem with the progressive movement today.

Hilarious video Bombshell the beginning of the end walls closing in the tipping point

Most leftists remember it like a previous generation remembers when they heard JFK was killed. It was the moment they realized Donald Trump would become President of the United States. Since then, mainstream media has been incessant in their proclamations that his days are numbered.

Perhaps it’s comforting to them to continuously hear about how the latest bombshell means it’s the beginning of the end because the walls are closing in on a presidency that has reached a tipping point. Or something.

FBN pulls out of Saudi conference, wants unrestricted interview of MBS by Maria Bartiromo

FBN pulls out of Saudi conference wants unrestricted interview of MBS by Maria Bartiromo

Fox Business Network is the latest media sponsor to pull out of the Future Investment Initiative Conference scheduled to be held in Riyadh from October 23-25. They have also removed show host Maria Bartiromo from her speaking spot at the event, but left the possibility open for her to be added back under one specific circumstance.

If the Saudis let her have an unrestricted interview with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, they will let her attend the event and speak there.

Fox Business Pulls Out of Saudi Conference Amid Khashoggi Controversy

https://variety.com/2018/tv/news/fox-business-pulls-out-of-saudi-conference-khashoggi-1202984667/“Fox Business Network has canceled its sponsorship and participation in the Future Investment Initiative conference in Saudi Arabia. We continue to seek an interview with Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman,” the network said in a statement. Fox Business anchor had been scheduled to take part in the event, but will not attend unless there is an opportunity for her to conduct an unrestricted interview with the Saudi leader, according to a person familiar with the matter. The network has been trying to secure such a conversation, this person said.

The conference is hosted by the Public Investment Fund, the Saudi sovereign wealth fund. Dubbed “Davos in the Desert,” the conference was first held last year, and has been seen as an opportunity for the mideast nation to spotlight the modernization efforts of Crown Prince Mohammed.

My Take

The outrage over the disappearance and alleged murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi has sparked many western companies and media outlets to abandon the conference. It’s untenable to attend at this point with so much mounting evidence of direct involvement by the Crown Prince.

The Saudis could go a long way towards clearing their name of charges they deny by letting Bartiromo interview the Crown Prince. At this point, keeping MBS insulated isn’t doing themselves any favors.
