It’s always the algorithm’s fault.
Google News, which claims to allow the algorithm to decide what stories get top billing on any particular subject at any particular moment, is supposed to be able to differentiate between news and opinion. It allegedly bases its rankings on popularity of a story through links and social media as well as relative popularity based on traffic spikes by source.
They have implied multiple times that they do not manually promote stories. This seems impossible with the current top story which is clearly an opinion piece and is not being given extra juice from inbound links from other sources. It has been heavily shared, but not much more than other popular stories on The Daily Beast. Yet somehow this story beat the algorithm and made it to the very top of Google News.
Let’s go ahead and state the obvious. Any claims that this article was not manually promoted to the top are bogus. Five Pinocchios.
Manipulative, leftist mainstream media, which includes the “unbiased” rankings on Google News, is doing everything in their power to derail the Republicans. They don’t smell blood, so they’re stabbing and slicing anywhere they can to draw some.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
