We start today with a correction. The recently-deceased Aaron Carter was not a Backstreet Boy. He was the brother of Nick Carter, who WAS a Backstreet Boy. We apologize. Our expertise in boy bands and pop music is pitiful.
Gas and energy prices are a significant issue today in the U.S. midterm election. On the campaign trail this weekend, Presiden Biden said this of coal plants:
“We’re going to be shutting these plants down all across America and having wind and solar.”
This did not go over well and the White House has been walking it back like a moonwalk. White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre said that the President’s words were twisted and “it was loud and hard to hear, I think, or maybe not exactly what was being said.”
No, we heard it just fine, thanks.
West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin responded to the words he heard on Twitter, saying that the comments were “divorced from reality” and “the reason the American people are losing trust in President Biden.” He said that “politicizing our nation’s energy policies would only bring higher prices and more pain for the American people.”
This is true everywhere, but the environment is being politicized. Now Democrats are starting to signal that they think China should pay for the environment like Republicans think that Mexico should pay for the wall. We’ll have to see if voters lock on to that.
Is Google politicizing your search results? Yes, they are!
A Harvard-trained researcher named Robert Epstein studies search results for the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology. His research has strongly shown how your search results are skewed by political bent and he published his research on Monday in the Daily Caller.
It is not just what you are shown in your search results. It is more subliminal than that. He has preserved what he calls “ephemeral experiences,” or short-lived content that “impacts people and then disappears, leaving no trace.” He hopes to analyze more than 2.5 million pieces of this content by Election Day, which is today.
He also showed that a suggested search can take a 50-50 voter and turn them towards one side by 90-10, meaning leaning 90% towards one side when they were previously undecided.
Is that in play in today’s election? You bet your ballot it is! His research shows a liberal bias in Google search results, especially in swing states such as Florida, Arizona and Wisconsin. We covered this news in yesterday’s episode of Redacted. Watch here for more context.

A new study in the JAMA Pediatric shows that screen time for children is up 52% since the pandemic. I can only read this as a mother who is constantly trying to keep my children off of screens, and this study makes SO. DARN. MAD!
A 52% increase in screen time is unequivocally NOT good for children! Children between the ages of 12 to 18 saw the biggest increases in screen time use due to the pandemic. Because what else was there for them to do? School was online. Their friends were online. These were habit-forming periods of their lives, and now parents are struggling to put that horse back in the barn!
Researchers now say that health care providers need to work overtime to promote healthy device use habits and to promote “device-free time, sleep, and physical activity; and [to encourage] children to use screens as a creative outlet or a means to meaningfully connect with others.”
Chef Boyardee is trending because Democratic Representative Patrick Maloney said that families should have to eat that sh*t in order to combat inflation. Do your part and eat highly processed garbage food!
280 kilometers per hour. That is how fast police say one man in Australia was driving when he was charged. That is 155 miles per hour! Facebook users say that this can’t be right since the Volkswagen he was driving has a max speed of 250 km/h but it has been shown to be capable of going faster. Don’t try it at home!
The U.S. says that it has a massive flu outbreak because so few people have had a flu shot this year. Could it be because of vaccine fatigue???
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that hospitalizations for influenza are at a 10-year high, and at least 730 people have died from the flu this year. They say that they have administered flu shots to five million fewer people this year compared to the same time last year.
Experts worry about what they call a “tripledemic.” That means a combination of flu, Covid and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Coincidentally (or not at all coincidentally), Pfizer announced trials for a new RSV vaccine in an investor call in October.
