PragerU: TikTok Joins Big Tech ‘Competition for Who Can Be the Most Woke’

Non-profit organization PragerU, founded by radio host Dennis Prager to produce short informative videos on conservative topics, has been permanently banned from the Chinese-owned social media app TikTok for “multiple violations” of the platform’s community guidelines. According to PragerU, Silicon Valle has a “proven track record of silencing conservative voices and being against free speech,” and TikTok has joined a “competition for who can be the most woke.”

Feds Track Down Capitol Rioter Using Facial Recognition on Social Media Posts

Federal authorities reportedly arrested a suspect in the U.S. Capitol riot after using facial recognition programs to find an image of the suspect on his girlfriend’s Instagram page. The arrest represents the first time that facial recognition was used to identify a suspect from the Capitol riot rather than to confirm the identity of an existing suspect.
