YouTube’s ‘Trending’ Tab is Rigged in Favor of Big Media

Study proves Google-owned video platform is deliberately burying independent creators.

A study by a student at the University of Glasgow proves that YouTube’s ‘trending’ tab is heavily rigged in favor of big corporate media networks.

The study included 40,000 data entries and sought to answer the question “is YouTube biased towards traditional media?”

The answer is undoubtedly yes.

The study showed that independent creator Philip DeFranco, who produces a daily news show, appeared on the trending tab only twice despite amassing an average of 1.4 million views per video, while AP, which averages 10,000 views per video trended seven times.

In all, 95% of all videos from news creators that appeared on the trending tab came from legacy media outlets.

Despite having the most subscribed channel by far in the United States, PewDiePie only appeared on the trending tab in the U.S. once compared to 45 times in Canada, proving that the U.S. trending tab is being curated to exclude him.

Other creators who routinely post viral content, such as Joe Rogan, didn’t trend once in the United States despite in Rogan’s case trending 74 times in Canada.

Corporate network ‘comedy’ shows which routinely push left-wing political narratives like Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert appeared dozens of times on the trending tab.

As we have previously highlighted, YouTube openly rigs its own search engine to exclude independent news content creators, burying them under a wall of mainstream media videos.

It seems clear that the video giant has removed the ‘you’ from YouTube and has now set about creating CorporateTube to the detriment of the independent creators who built it in the first place.

Videos: Biden Lies His Way Through Debate; Trump Asks For “Explanation To The American People”

“We can’t lock ourselves up in a basement like Joe does”

Joe Biden emerged from his basement Thursday to lie his way through the final debate with President Trump, and boy were there some zingers.

Watch the full debate here:

On Coronavirus, Biden accused Trump of having “no comprehensive plan,” while declaring that he would mandate masks. Trump hit back, noting that Biden will lockdown the country without considering the economic impact.

“We can’t lock ourselves up in a basement like Joe does. He has the ability to lock himself up. I don’t know; he’s obviously made a lot of money someplace,” Trump said.

Trump noted that Biden called his early decision to close down air travel from China ‘Xenophobic’, and Biden denied it, which was a lie:

When the debate turned to national security, Trump asked the question everyone has been waiting to hear the answer to.

“You were getting a lot of money from Russia. They were paying you a lot of money. And what came out today – all of the emails, the horrible emails of all the money you were raking in, you and your family. And I think you owe an explanation to the American people,” The President said.

Biden responded, “I have not taken a single penny from any country whatsoever,” another clear lie, then attempted to pivot the topic back by claiming Trump has a “secret bank account in China.”

He also blamed ‘Russians’ for the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Trump hit back, declaring “I don’t make money from China, you do. I don’t make money from Ukraine, you do. I don’t make money from Russia, you do.”

When North Korea briefly came up in the conversation, Biden declared, in another moment of senility, that “We had a good relationship with Hitler before he invaded Europe.”

On the topic of healthcare, Biden straight up lied again claiming that no one lost their insurance under Obamacare:

Trump noted that Biden “wants socialized medicine.”

On the subject of border security, Biden claimed that Trump separated families at the border, when in reality it was a policy already in place under the Obama/Biden administration which Trump put a stop to.

“Who built the cages Joe?” Trump asked Biden.

Biden even threw Obama under the bus on immigration, stating that he will be “president” and not “vice president” this time around:

Biden was soon wondering how much longer he’d have to lie for:

When the debate turned to the topic of race, Biden called Trump a racist, in a convoluted and bizarre way, by suggesting that Abe Lincoln was a racist:

On climate change, Biden claimed that he has never opposed fracking, despite the fact that just a few weeks ago he said he did:

Biden also admitted that he would close down the oil industry:

How do you know Trump won the debate? Because leftists say these kind of things:

President Trump tore into Barack Obama Wednesday as the previous incumbent of the White House campaigned in place of Joe Biden, who is nowhere to be seen since his son’s laptop scandal exploded last week.

Obama appeared in Philadelphia, labelling Trump as ‘crazy,’ and accusing the President of lying every day, and tweeting conspiracy theories “about secret cabals running the world, or navy seals didn’t actually kill Bin Laden”.

Obama also attacked Trump on the coronavirus response, stating “We literally left this White House a pandemic playbook,” adding “They probably used it to, I don’t know, prop up a wobbly table somewhere.”

Watch:

Trump hit back at Obama during a rally in North Carolina, telling the huge crowd “You know Obama’s now campaigning. Oh, here we go.”

Referring to him as ‘Barack Hussein Obama,’ Trump said his predecessor had “refused to support Biden,” up til now.

“There was nobody that campaigned harder for Crooked Hillary Clinton than Obama,” Trump added, noting “He was all over the place.”

“The only one more unhappy than Crooked Hillary that night was Barack Hussein Obama,” Trump boomed.

Watch:

Trump also revisited a past interaction with Obama, when the media erroneously claimed that the crowd for Trump’s inauguration was smaller than for Obama’s.

Trump noted that when photos of the two events were compared by the media “they show empty space and they show Barack Hussein Obama’s.”

“They took the pictures about five or six hours,” after the event, Trump said, noting that “When I was speaking it was packed.”

Extremist Democrats Take Part In Event Hosted By Blogger Who Declared ‘America Deserved 9/11’

These people will be in charge if Biden gets elected

Extreme leftist Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) were criticised for taking part in an event this week that was organised by a leftist blogger who just last year proclaimed that “America deserved 9/11.”

The Washington Free Beacon notes that AOC and Omar were involved in the live streaming event hosted by Hasan Piker that claimed to be aimed at encouraging viewers to make plans to get out and vote early.

While playing videos games, Ocasio-Cortez described the event as having an “amazing lineup” and thanked Piker, for having “wrangled” the event together without much time.

Piker appeared on a Young Turks broadcast in 2019 where he sickeningly attacked Texas GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw, making fun of that fact that he lost an eye while on active duty in Iraq.

“Didn’t he go to war and like literally lose his eye because some mujahideen—a brave f—ing soldier—f—ed his eye hole with their d—,”  Piker said at the time.

During the same broadcast Piker declared that “America deserved 9/11, dude. F— it, I’m saying it,” after which he tried to weasel out of the statement, saying he meant America, not the American people, deserved 9/11.

The fact that Democratic representatives are involving themselves with a person like this says everything voters need to know.

Ilhan Omar has previously courted controversy where 9/11 is concerned, by describing the attack as “some people” who “did something” at an event for American and Islamic relations in 2019.

Ocasio-Cortez later defended Omar’s comments.

President Trump has warned multiple times that this extremist arm of the Democratic party will easily be able to co-opt Joe Biden if he manages to win the election, and forward a radical leftist agenda.
