editor in chief:

    The head of one of the world's most prestigious scientific journals has written an article pumping the brakes on the international scramble for a Covid-19 vaccine. In it, Holden Thorp, editor-in-chief of the Science journals, urges politicians not to cut corners as part of a 'dangerous rush' to find a vaccine, and to instead ensure existing protocols and rigorous testing are adhered to.  It comes just days after Russian leader Vladimir Putin claimed his country created a jab which confers two years of immunity against the coronavirus.  Official documents reveal the vaccine was approved after tests on only 38 people and 'causes side-effects including fever, pain and swelling'.  The scientific community was outraged after learning of this 'reckless, foolish and...
    Daily Caller editor-in-chief Geoffrey Ingersoll has said that the conservative news website has experienced Google search suppression similar to that reported by Breitbart News yesterday. Based on Google’s defense that it manually blacklists “violent extremism,” Ingersoll pointed out: “We are not ISIS.” “Specifically we struggled with search slowly dwindling until May 4 exactly. We broke down the analytics. The May 4 flat line is clearly the result of the human hand in the process,” said Ingersoll in a series of tweets.

    The censorship of conservative news outlets by Big Tech has never been more blatant, according to Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow. A day after Big Tech platforms Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook removed a video of doctors advocating the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine, Marlow told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that he wasn’t surprised by the move. "This is it. Freedom of speech in the United States right now is controlled by Google, it's controlled by Facebook, and it's controlled by Twitter," Marlow said on Tuesday night. "This is exactly why we saw these videos memory-holed from the internet yesterday." Marlow accused the Big Tech platforms of acting as a cover for former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House campaign, adding that Google’s...
    The managing editor for the conservative website RedState — whose byline reads Streiff — delighted in reports of peaceful protesters being shit in the head and pepper-sprayed in the face by cops in Portland, Oregon. Social media was abuzz with photos, videos, and news reports of unmarked and badgeless federal officers rounding up protesters in Portland Thursday night, but Mr. Streiff had a different reaction entirely to the actions of law enforcement during the unrest. When Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) tweeted about a protester being shot in the head, Mr. Streiff joked “‘shot in the head,’ so we can assume no vital organ was injured. That’s good news.” ‘shot in the head,’ so we can assume no vital organ...
    Dan Peres, a longtime editor-in-chief of Details and a short-term editor of the never relaunched Gawker, has been tapped as the editor-in-chief of Ad Age. He replaces Brian Braiker, the onetime executive editor at Digiday, who edited Ad Age from 2017 until April 2020. In between Details and the failed relaunch effort at Gawker, Peres had a cup of coffee at Derek Jeter’s digital publication, The Players Tribune, and published a brutally honest memoir, “As Needed for Pain: A Memoir of Addiction.” In the book, Peres said at one point he was taking up to 60 tablets of Vicodin a day to feed his nearly decade-long opioid addiction, which started after he had back surgery to repair a spinal disc...

    The editor-in-chief for The Global Times, a state-funded newspaper in China, asked Monday if the United States is “mentally retarded” for rejecting Beijing’s broad territorial claims in the South China Sea, a region with long-standing disputes between China and other Southeast Asian countries. In a retweet of an article about Washington’s statement, Global Times editor-in-chief Hu Xijin accused the US of trying to provoke a conflict between China and surrounding nations. “The US issued the statement four years after the South China sea ruling. Is Washington mentally retarded and slow in action?” Xijin wrote. “Who can’t see you want to instigate ASEAN-China clash and meak ASEAN the cannon fodder of US’ strategy against China? Do you think other people are...
