New App Blocks 800+ NY Times Reporters Twitter Accounts
Here’s a start to stopping disinformation. This New App Blocks 800+ NY Times Reporters Twitter Accounts!
The New York Times has been a sinking ship for quite some time now. They definitely did not help themselves by spreading so much misinformation during President Trump’s tenure. They been sued many times in the past, and the accusing party has not always been President Trump. For example, back in 2015 a woman named Deidre Chapman sued both the New York Times, and the journalist John Otis. Otis wrote a piece in the ‘Neediest Cases’ section which detailed certain aspects of Chapman’s daughters’ life. The article caused Chapman’ much heart-ache, and she suffered an ischemic stroke and seizure due to it. She sued for $10 Million Dollars. Another case which is much more well know is the Nick Sandmann defamation lawsuit against The New York Times from October 2020. (Sandmann won his case against CNN, which resulting in a $250,000,000 settlement). (As usual, ALL SOURCES are listed at bottom of article)
Needless to say, the NY Times has proven to be a constant source for ‘fake news’ and ‘misinformation’, and people have had it. Along comes some sort of a savior! There’s an app out there called ‘blockNYT.com‘ and it installs itself into your twitter account (I did it through Chrome Browser on a desktop computer). The full list of New York Times related Twitter accounts it blocks (over 800) can be found here : http://blocknyt.com/list.csv and that list is updated regularly. You can even uninstall the app and all those NY Times’ accounts will continue to stay blocked! .. What an awesome tool! …. Now if the programmers could just make one to block some family members …. lol, Just Kidding! … If you could have an app that would block certain news articles from showing up on your social networking feeds, which ‘keywords’ and ‘phrases’ would you tell it to block?? ..
