    Host Alex Marlow opens today’s podcast with the latest news on the left’s abortion activism in the wake of the leaked draft of Justice Samuel Alito’s majority opinion that could overturn Roe v. Wade. There are protests across the country, but they pale in comparison to what we’ve seen during recent political news cycles. Then, DHS Truth Minister Nina Jankowicz’s insists that it’s actually liberals who are being censored online. She’s a nut and is being granted a lot of power by our government. Also, Elon Musk’s Tesla will reimburse you for your abortion (if you work there). And Alex gives you the latest news on the incoming White House Press Secretary who is married to a CNN anchor, the flagging stock market, Dr. Anthony Fauci whining about misinformation, and Target promoting products for “trans” children. Our guest today is the founder of Redline Steel, Colin Wayne. Colin is not only a veteran, a steel entrepreneur, and an online influencer; he’s also a fitness model.

    MOST women couldn’t live without their female friends, who back them up and support them through good times and bad. While many face misogyny in their everyday lives from men, women are known for being each other’s biggest cheerleaders and closest confidantes. 5Towie's Lydia Bright has been targeted by mum-shamers for giving her daughter Loretta a dummy 5Dani Dyer was abused for using a babysitter for her son Santiago So why does the opposite often seem to be true online? In the digital world, a dark undercurrent of women turning on each other is on the rise, creating an increasingly toxic environment. Lies and death threats are aimed specifically at mums who dare to make a living from sites such as Instagram. Could the reason behind this toxicity be that women on social media are viewed as trying to portray themselves as perfect role models? Or is it simply envy?

The comments come just one day after condemning Twitter's board - of which he is a member - for being preoccupied with 'plots and coups' amid Elon Musk's attempt to takeover the company Dorsey, who stepped down as CEO of Twitter in November, lashed out at CNN and then Fox. The online rant began when CNN's media correspondent, Brian Stelter, tweeted a link to an op-ed accusing Fox's Tucker Carlson of 'selling doubt', Dorsey replied: 'And you all are selling hope?' Newsmax's Alex Salvi then jumped in, saying that Dorsey was defending the controversial Fox anchor. 'Not defending a thing,' Dorsey replied. 'Holding up a mirror.' Former CEO Jack Dorsey, pictured in June at a Bitcoin conference, on Monday night took aim at the media, criticizing CNN in particular Ellen Pao, a venture capitalist, then chimed in, saying: 'I thought his point was that...

    A New York City columnist who created the notorious 'Sh***y Media Men' list detailing allegations of sexual assault, harassment and misconduct could still go to trial for defamation after a judge declined to resolve the case in her favor. Moira Donegan, 32, who created the widely circulated list in 2017 at the height of the #MeToo movement, was sued by New Orleans-based journalist Stephen Elliott after the Google spreadsheet housing the list accused him of rape, sexual harassment and 'coercion'. Elliott's lawsuit claimed the allegations 'false' and 'unsubstantiated.' Donegan's attorney, Roberta Kaplan, sought immunity for her client under a controversial law protecting social media users that host or republish from being held legally responsible for what others do or say online.  U.S. District Court Judge LaShann DeArcy Hall on Thursday, in an order obtained by DailyMail.com, declined the request, arguing Donegan's testimony and 'vague' recollections about the document did not 'rule out the possibility' that she encouraged others to make posts that broke the law. DeArcy Hall's ruling leaves the possibility that Donegan could stand trial for defamation, however, the case could still be resolved by...
    'Agony aunts' have long dolled out hard truths from the pages of a magazine, but the TikTok generation is seeking out a new brand of social media-savvy agony aunt (and uncles) who are on hand to offer validation and reassurance, rather than tough love.  Rather than writing into their favourite columnist, Gen Z find their agony aunts on podcasts, Instagram and TikTok. Often the advice isn't dished out by a qualified therapist, but by an influencer who has carved out a niche.  Their poster girl is an American TikTok user named Tinx, whose videos have been 'liked' 80million times. Therapist Caroline Plumer told FEMAIL that while Gen Z are more willing to open up about their emotions than their predecessors, they still feel 'embarrassed' about their feelings so shy away from opening up to friends.  She added young people may feel validated by having high-profile influencers giving their problems attention, and that users can get gratification instantly using their phone, in the same way they would with a taxi or takeaway, rather than wait for counselling.  Meanwhile Nadine Pfeifer, founder and...
    A Chinese mother-of-eight has been found chained by the neck in a freezing shed sparking outrage in the Communist country. The woman, identified only as 'Little Plum Blossom' was found in the wooden shack on the outskirts of Xuzhou city in Jiangsu province last month wearing thin clothing in the middle of winter and a metal brace around her neck. Authorities quickly dismissed concerns about abduction or trafficking before desperately trying to censor critical comments online about their failure to protect her. In the video, a young boy says he brings the woman food to her every day, and she appears unable to communicate. Local reports say she is married to a local man and has given birth to his eight children, but her hometown is in the faraway southwestern province of Yunnan, raising fears of trafficking.  The footage was first posted on Chinese social media sites by an online blogger who found the woman while visiting the area to advertise charity efforts in rural parts of the country. A Chinese mother-of-eight who has been found chained by the neck in...

According to the online description, his session is called 'The Internet Lie Machine', with details reading: 'As social media algorithms reward shock value over reality, as the line between fact and fiction weakens every day, as media propaganda and online hatred run rampant, we must ask: how did we get here and how do we get out of this mess?  'We'll hear from an expert authority on the rise of digital propaganda, a foremost civil rights advocate who understands the collision between misinformation and racial justice, and a global leader who is taking on misinformation in pursuit of a new era of truth.'

    I was 14 when my life changed. I realized I could leverage humor, pranks, and average Ohio-teen recklessness in the emerging frontier of social media and actually make money online. I had no idea what was right around the corner.  Since then, I've amassed over 64million followers, I've been one of the most searched people on Google, I've been hired and fired by Disney, I've gone undefeated as a fighter, I've become a household name, and I've transcended the traditional media landscape into mainstream business success, not one bit of it which I take for granted.  The current iteration of being an 'influencer' is an unsustainable environment that rewards brash behavior, to say the least. This reality is highly conducive to bully-like behavior of which I've witnessed, been subjected to and been the instigator of.  Jake Paul, the self-proclaimed ‘problem child’ had a scandal-ridden rise to fame as a teen The 24-year-old has since turned his hand to boxing, a sport, he insists, that has saved his life  Bullying, whether it's from behind a keyboard or in...
    From bargain kaftans I couldn’t live without to perfectly oversized sloppy linen tops that promised to make me the embodiment of summer chic, this year I’ve succumbed to the ease of online shopping. My addiction wasn’t fed by traditional High Street retailers selling clothes online, but something more pervasive and relentless: social media ads from strangely-named companies — Babelary, Vougue, Chic Meee — that I’ve never heard of before. The ads pop up on my social media feeds multiple times a day. I often find myself giving in to my ‘click-to-buy’ compulsion, despite strongly suspecting these packages won’t actually contain what I think I’m ordering. Instead, when they eventually arrive (usually several weeks later, by which time I have forgotten I ever ordered them), the bohemian green and white kaftan dress won’t be chiffon, but a ratty bit of polyester with sleeves that end four inches above my wrist. What looked like oversized linen tops online will in fact be nylon, and very, very small. It was during lockdown when many more of us took up online shopping while stores...

    Fan culture in China will see new regulations this year, says the country's internet watchdog. Zhongxin Media/Weibo China's internet watchdog is cracking down on its fan communities, per an announcement this week. This comes after fan groups dumped mass amounts of milk into drains.

    Facebook has blamed a 'technical issue' for a drop in the amount of child abuse images and videos it's blocked on the site over the last six months.  According to its Community Standards Enforcement Report, the company had a problem with its 'media-matching' technology, which identifies illegal uploads. From January to March 2021, Facebook removed five million pieces of child abuse content – down from 5.4 million from October to December 2020. But both these quarters marked a massive slump in removals from the quarter prior – 12.4 million between July and September 2020.  Between July and September 2020, Facebook removed 12.4 million pieces of child abuse content, but this figure slumped to 5.4 million for October to December 2020, and further to 5 million in January to March 2021 Facebook explained the huge difference in removals between Q3 and Q4 last year, which means it failed to stop potentially millions of child abuse images and videos from appearing on its website.   'In Q4, content actioned decreased due to a technical issue with our media-matching technology,' Facebook said in the report.  'We resolved...

    An ongoing conflict between Twitter and the government of India is prompting renewed debate over social media and freedom of speech online. The dispute relates to a series of agricultural reforms the Indian government introduced late last year. As One Green Planet previously reported, farmers fiercely oppose the new laws, and protests have gripped the country for months. In response, the government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has resorted to Draconian strategies to quell dissent. Protesters report police violence. Nodeep Kuar, a 25-year-old labor rights activist, says police beat and sexually assaulted her after her arrest at a protest outside Delhi, the Indian capital.

Citing laws against subversion and threats to public order, the Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information (MeitY) demanded Twitter delete or hide over 1,100 accounts. These included an investigative new outlet’s Twitter page, and accounts that had expressed support for...
