    PragerU Brings New Suit Against Google in California State Court

    Conservative nonprofit PragerU filed suit against Google in California court on Tuesday for allegedly violating state law in restricting access to Prager’s educational videos on YouTube, according to a copy of the complaint obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

    The suit claims that YouTube’s restrictions on many of Prager’s videos violate California law in four ways: restricting the nonprofit’s freedom of speech contrary to the state constitution; discriminating against Prager on a religious and political basis in violation of the state’s civil rights act; “engaging in unlawful, misleading, and unfair businesses practices” contrary to the state’s unfair competition laws; and breach of contract for violating YouTube’s own terms of service.

    Democrat Senator Worries His Party Is Going Too Far Left

    Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., is worried his party is alienating moderate voters by moving too far to the left.

    “If we as a Democratic Party are going to move from a minority at every level that is dedicated to resistance, to a majority that is capable of governing, we have got to move from grievance to optimism,” Coons said in a speech on Thursday, according to U.S. News and World Report.

    “And we’ve got to abandon a politics of anxiety that is characterized by wild-eyed proposals and instead deliver ideas and practical solutions.” READ MORE...

    Jimmy Kimmel Wades Into Politics Again and Misleads His Viewers Along the Way

    Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday deleted a video clip from Twitter and YouTube that falsely informed viewers that a proposed Federal Communications Commission rule would force them to pay hundreds of dollars to complain to the FCC.

    “The FCC is considering a plan that would require U.S. citizens to pay $225 to make a complaint. So, if you’re mad about how high your cable bill is, soon you can pay the government $225 to complain about it,” the host of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” told his viewers Wednesday night. READ MORE...

    Facebook, Amazon, Google and Twitter All Work With Left-Wing SPLC

    Four of the world’s biggest tech platforms have working partnerships with a left-wing nonprofit that has a track record of inaccuracies and routinely labels conservative organizations as “hate groups.”

    Facebook, Amazon, Google, and Twitter all work with or consult the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in policing their platforms for “hate speech” or “hate groups,” a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found.

    The SPLC is on a list of “external experts and organizations” that Facebook works with “to inform our hate speech policies,” Facebook spokeswoman Ruchika Budhraja told TheDCNF in an interview. READ MORE...

    This Liberal Group Targets Ingraham, Sinclair, and Williamson

    The Atlantic fired conservative writer Kevin Williamson on Thursday over his 4-year-old comments that women who obtain abortions should be prosecuted for murder.

    Williamson’s position is atypical for conservatives—who typically hold that women are the second victim of abortion—but his termination for it still represents a startling after-the-fact litmus test for one of the nation’s most prominent magazines.

    The Atlantic Editor-in-Chief Jeffrey Goldberg fired Williamson after left-wing group Media Matters dug up a September 2014 podcast where Williamson reiterated his belief, first articulated in a single tweet, that women who obtain abortions should be prosecuted for murder. Hanging was the conservative writer’s preferred form of capital punishment because “if the state is going to do violence, let’s make it violence,” Williamson said. READ MORE...
