Automated Machine Generated Transcript:

[00:00:00] Craig Peterson: If you, go ahead and even censor, certain types of things, obviously there's a liability, but there is no liability for any of these big guys, including Google.

Good morning, everybody. Craig, Peterson here. Hey, I got into a couple of, I think of really important topics with Mr. Jim Polito this morning. And so we're going to get into those right now.

Jim Polito: Here is the man behind it all pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. No, he's pulling back the curtain and showing us the man, our good friend, and tech talk guru. Craig Peterson. Good morning, sir.

Craig Peterson: Hey, more name it's kinda rainy. This is going to be quite today.

[00:01:00] Jim Polito: Yes, I'm not happy that we're getting a storm, but at least the storm is coming during the day better than overnight in the dark and the like. So we'll ride it out just like we're going to ride out the whole TikTok story. we'll get to that cause I can't wait to hear your insights on TikTok.

But first I want to ask you about this Google censoring, Breitbart. Didn't, we just have a hearing in front of Congress, where Republicans were concerned that big tech is censoring conservative voices.

[00:02:00] Craig Peterson: Yeah, this is a very big deal because Google has been concerned about President Trump's winning for years. In fact, they were involved in beforehand and when President Trump got elected in 2016, an internal meeting that was leaked to Breitbart, itself, top Google executives lamented President Trump's victory and compared Trump voters to extremists. They said back in 2016 that they really wanted to make Trump's election and the populous movement a blip in history. So we know what their intent was. Jim.

Jim Polito: Yeah. Yeah, hence these hearings. Look, they're a private company and private companies can censor whichever way they want, but you also risk, being considered a monopoly and being broken up due to antitrust laws.

[00:03:00] Craig Peterson: Then there's a law on the books that's been around in the earlier days with the internet that it says these types of companies are basically exempt from all of the rules that you would normally be covered under. So you've been in the press, you've been on television, you're on the radio now. There are libel laws and slander laws. and if you repeat something, if you, go ahead and even sensor, certain types of things, obviously there's a liability, but. There is no liability for any of these big guys, including. Google. So there's a chart I'm looking at here that we're going to put up on the website and it's talking about the Sistrix visibility index.

So this ranks a website's visibility in Google and what it does is it does Google searches every so often and tries to see where the results are. So I'm looking at an article here on Breitbart news, showing this visibility index, cause anybody that publishes online is going to pay really close attention to this sort of thing.

What we're finding on this index is it's absolutely nuts but Breitbart, it was going up a few ups and downs. Think of it as a stock market. Then Google had an update in 2017 called Fred. All of a sudden it started to drop and then right around the end of 2017, the visibility index went from 7 which is absolutely huge.

[00:04:00] I love to have a seven down all the way in now where it's almost zero. Wow.

Jim Polito: Wow.

Craig Peterson: Yeah. the search visibility has just dropped off and Google just killed all the search traffic to Breitbart when it comes to Joe Biden and any Joe Biden related searches. and that happened about May 5th this year.

So there they are obviously censoring. It really is. It really is. So Breitbart. I'm looking at what they've published here showing their number of clicks. They're showing that they were getting about 1200 clicks a day for people searching for Joe Biden, May 5th. It went from 1200 the prior days down to zero.

Jim Polito: My God. 

[00:05:00]You've got to look at something like that and say, this is pathetic and this is truly manipulating the news. When you're Google, when you're the pro these figures off the top of your head, I'm sure. But what percentage of the search market share. They have just in the United States. What percentage of it?

Craig Peterson: Remember too, Google also owns YouTube. Google's number one in the US and YouTube is number two in the US and together they garner almost 90% of all search traffic.

Jim Polito: That's bordering on antitrust. I know as you explained, they are exempt from the legislation, you know what it's time to update the legislation.

[00:06:00] Don't you think? Not that I'm a heavy regulation guy, but when you've got something like that going on in the marketplace, and you can say somebody else could do it better. Yeah but I happen to be in antitruster.

Craig Peterson: Yeah. Yeah. It's a really interesting problem. Look at the New York times percentage, they get about 40% of their traffic from Google, and now Googles responsible for 9% of Breitbart's traffic. This percent of any traffic about Joe Biden.

Jim Polito:  There is no doubt in my mind that the New York times is the left equivalent of the right, Breitbart.

Craig Peterson: Yes, Absolutely. My wife this morning was reading an article about an NBC producer who just left NBC news. Might want to look this thing up.

Jim Polito: No, I read it. I read it very interesting.

[00:07:00] Craig Peterson: Yeah. Yeah. It's these people are out there looking for fringe information on the left, but ignoring stream stuff like Breitbart on the right.

Jim Polito: Yeah, they are, then they will publish anything, fringe, anything that fits the agenda.

All right. Let's get to my favorite, which is TikTok. I have a very funny story for you about TikTok. My two sons were shocked to hear that I was on TikTok and I said to them, gentlemen, My TikTok is much different than your TikTok. And they said, what do you mean? I said I don't get dancing girls. Girls doing dances for the camera. I get stuff on politics, home improvement, old TV shows. They said, yeah. Oh, that's on there. All of that stuff is on there.  What frightens me though? About my TikTok experiences up until a little while ago. I never really liked the videos.

[00:08:00] I just went to the for you feed. I gotta tell you, Craig, TikTok knew exactly who I was and exactly what I wanted to see.

Craig Peterson: They've been really good about that. That's why they've become so popular. They really can tell what you want. They watch what you're watching.

Jim Polito: Yeah.

Craig Peterson: The President has is what are they doing outside of that application?

Jim Polito: Yeah,

Craig Peterson: That's where our real problem comes in. So apparently, first of all, from a technology side, they have been caught multiple times stealing information from anybody that has TikTok installed on their phones. Most recently they were stealing your copy buffer.

[00:09:00] So let's say that you've gone to a website on your phone and it's a legitimate bank's website and say you haven't been tricked. You're on your bank's website and it's asking for your account number. So you go when you get your account number, cause you've got it in, hopefully, one password.

Maybe heaven forbid a spreadsheet or something. And so you copy it out of that. And then you go back to the bank's website because I'm not so good at remembering 15 digit numbers. So you go back to the bank's website and you paste it in. And then you go to TikTok. TikTok was caught grabbing the contents of your copy buffer. Automatically.

Jim Polito: Wow.

Craig Peterson: So that means any passwords you had copied, any bank information you had copied anything that was in your copy buffer TikTok grabbed. So that's just the lead.

Jim Polito: I'm just trying to think on my, I copy. They're going to get a lot of 'em. They're going to get a lot of my show prep because copy, cut, and paste that into an email.

[00:10:00] So I guess TikToks going to get my show prep. I o cut and paste sometimes when I get, when you're supposed to do a third-party verification when you're entering something, and you get texted you the number I will cut and paste that. Huh. So they're getting that, information. No, yeah. Websites I'm around. Okay. they're going to see me. Yeah.

It's not going to be that exciting for them.

Craig Peterson: They're also grabbing your personal information and then your name they'll track the GPS on it and know where your home address is.

[00:11:00] National Weather Service: The national weather service in Boston has issued a tornado warning for Northwestern Hampshire County in Western, Massachusetts, Northwestern Franklin County in Western, Massachusetts until 9:30 AM. Eastern daylight time. At 8:45 AM Eastern daylight time. So if you were thunder stolen, capable of producing a tornado was located over Middlefield or 13 miles East of Pittsfield.

Moving north at 45 miles per hour. Hazards include tornado. Flying debris will be dangerous to those caught without shelter. Mobile homes will be damaged or destroyed damage to roof windows and vehicles will occur. Tree damage is likely. This dangerous storm will be near Cummington around 8:55 AM. Eastern daylight time Plainfield and Holly around 9:00 AM.

Eastern daylight time Charlamagne around nine, 10:00 AM. Eastern daylight time Monroe and roll around 9:15 AM. Eastern daylight time. He's around 9:20 AM. Eastern daylight time.

[00:12:00] Craig Peterson: He's back in China. They're going to have to change, to use Microsoft servers based in the US as well as these other countries. So there's a lot involved. It's going to take months. Show them the bottom line is everybody is very careful. We've, I've warned about TikTok forever. I am, but, TikTok, and say that they're confident in the longterm success of the app, they deny that they are sharing any data with their owners, the Chinese communist party. They already have started moving to the US. TikTok has nearly a thousand people here and plans to hire another 10,000 employees across the US. So all of those things would move under the Microsoft umbrella.

It's interesting. What can be done even if President Trump's? Yeah. Hey, you're gone. I'm banning you. At best it would be removed from the main app stores, but people still be able to get it. And as you pointed out the beginning of this whole thing, it is very addictive because they are so good at knowing what you want.

[00:13:00] Jim Polito: Yeah.

They are. They know exactly what I want. really. politics, everything. They're not sending me, videos that, praise AOC and Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden. Do you know what I mean? They're not, they're absolutely not. Wow. Okay. Craig, this is fascinating. and folks can always get more information from you.

How would you like them to do it?

Craig Peterson: How about, because I'm starting to do more training. We have spent the last two weeks and we've got the whole month of August devoted to putting together some more free pieces of training for people, as well as some paid courses. But yeah. Do you want to get these show notes? I send to Jim if you want to know about these pieces of training because we've got to bring people's level of knowledge up, go to Craig peterson.com/subscribe.

[00:14:00]You'll get my news, all of this stuff. Craigpeterson.com/subscribe.

All right, Craig, this has been fascinating. Thank you so much for your time. We'll catch up with you next week.

Hey, take care of Jim. Thanks.

All right.

You too. Okay. Folks, when we return a very important, fine

I just realized I forgot to introduce him at the beginning. Of course, Jim Pollito on WTAG/WHYN  big powerhouse stations down in Western and central mass.

Anyhow, it was a lot of fun and I really am getting busy here.

I'm excited. I've wanted to do this for years with some of these pieces of training and things. So keep an eye out and do make sure you go to Craig peterson.com/subscribe, and we'll be back tomorrow.
