The red pill is a bitter one to swallow for many

Stephen Kruiser: The Morning Briefing: Zuckerberg Is Right—Facebook Isn’t the News Hall Monitor for Stupid People – The notion that we are all just automatons dancing to the whims of Facebook and Twitter is patently ridiculous, but that’s what the various thought and speech police would like everyone to believe.”

“We are now being plagued by the leftist notion that everything can be controlled from the top down. They truly believe that if Twitter and Facebook just police their users’ content properly, they can protect gullible people from wrong information, whether it’s unintentionally or intentionally wrong.

This theory completely discounts the fact that stupid people will always be stupid. No amount of nanny policy from Facebook or Twitter can fix that. Zuckerberg seems to be finally getting that. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey doesn’t, and probably never will. The leftist approach will always be one of central control. They diminish and discount the worth and power of the individual, but a little faith in the people is what is needed here, and that’s something else that Zuckerberg seems to be getting these days:

Peter L. Swan: Run the Numbers, Survey the Folly – “Hence, like Norway, the evidence from Taiwan and the US does not indicate that lockdown is either necessary or is more effective than voluntary social distancing in combination with protecting the vulnerable, in reducing COVID-19 morbidity.”

Tyler Durden: Lancet Study That Caused WHO To Drop Hydroxychloroquine Trials Falls Under Scrutiny – not only missing the key ingredient but also with shady data issues – i.e. bad science used to formulate policy.

Joseph Klein: WH Press Secretary McEnany Shows Up Establishment Media – “Chris Wallace responds with ad hominem attacks.” It’s what you do when you chose the blue pill.

“Many White House correspondents, past and present, believe they are members of a privileged class. They demand the right to throw mud at the president and his spokespersons with loaded, gotcha questions but insist on absolute immunity from being questioned or criticized themselves. Chris Wallace, now an anchor for Fox News, is an alumnus of the White House press corps. He was NBC’s White House correspondent between 1975 and 1988. Wallace exhibited the hubris of his exclusive club during his Sunday morning show on May 24th when he went after White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. McEnany had dared to challenge the professionalism of the so-called “journalists” present in the White House briefing room. Wallace was dismayed.
…
The White House correspondents are not used to being reminded of the ethical responsibilities of their profession.
…
Chris Wallace needs to look in the mirror. So do the present members of the White House Correspondents Association.

Katie Pavlich: School in Session: McEnany Reminds the Media That Registered Voters in Many States Are Also Dead – “explained to reporters, with slides, detailed data and news stories, that voter fraud as a result of mass vote-by-mail schemes is in fact a real problem.” … “She also explained the difference between absentee voting and a mass mail-in voting system.”

neo: What’s going on with Judge Sullivan? [Part III] – “I believe that’s still operating with Sullivan right now. His actions since Barr’s DOJ pulled out of the case have been so outlandish, so egregious, so obviously incorrect in legal terms, that I think he has indeed reached Captain Ahab levels.”

neo: COVID-19 research: the press interprets – another cruise ship study where 80% asymptomatic could either foretell doom or be seen as indicating reduced risk. Guess which take the media uses?

Bruce Deitrick Price: K–12: Elon Musk Says Take the Red Pill – a new meme in town. Price explains and uses education as an example.
