Microsoft busted for blacklisting conservative sites

Break 'em up:

"Microsoft Teams with Establishment ‘NewsGuard’ to Create News Blacklist

Without consulting with its users, Microsoft has installed an establishment media browser extension, purportedly designed to rate the accuracy of news websites, as a default setting on mobile versions of its Edge browser. In practice, it creates a news blacklist by warning users away from sites including Breitbart News, The Drudge Report, and the Daily Mail.

The browser extension, called “Newsguard,” presents users with a red warning label if they navigate to a website that it judges to be unreliable. A “green” rating is given to websites that NewsGuard considers trustworthy.

A number of pro-Trump websites, including Breitbart News, are given a “red” rating by the extension."

Sue 'em out of existence (a common theme this week as liberals continue to spiral downwards).

Hey, speaking of lying cheats....

"NewsGuard Labels Breitbart *Merchandise* as Fake News

NewsGuard, the browser plugin that recently partnered with Microsoft and purports to indicate if news sources are trustworthy or not, is telling Internet users today that the Breitbart Store and its new #NeverSocialist USA shirt are “fake news.”

NewsGuard is a browser plugin and a default extension of the Microsoft Edge mobile browser that is designed to provide Internet users with a “trustworthiness” rating for websites that appear in search engine results. Websites with NewsGuard’s approval receive a “green” rating. Websites with a low “trustworthiness” rating receive a “red” rating. NewsGuard has praised outlets like National Review Online, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post, all of which preemptively condemned the innocent Covington High School students. “This website generally maintains basic standards of accuracy and accountability,” the rating reads.

Now, the Breitbart Store — including its newest shirt — is receiving a “red” rating from NewsGuard. The shirt reads “#NeverSocialist USA,” and was created in reference a remark by President Trump during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address."
------------------------------

The fake news is now so fake that they can't even disguinish what's a news site and an internet store.
