AI CHAT Bot Has Conservative Sites on a Blacklist

Breitbart reported that a self-professed “Comp Sci, Politics and Finance Nerd” claims to have discovered a list of blacklisted websites that OpenAI’s ChatGPT-4 will not draw from, for reasons such as “conspiracy theories” and “hate speech” — a list that includes Breitbart News and other conservative outlets like the Epoch Times.

In a statement to Breitbart News after publication, OpenAI claims it does not keep a list of “sites categorized as extremist, conspirational, and unreliable, and use this list to avoid citing them as sources.”

That’s not true of DeepAI.Org/Chat.

I asked it to write a memo for several conservative websites, and it appears to have gotten the information from pernicious fact-checkers like Newsguard or Media Bias Fact Check. Whether it’s in list form or not, conservative sites are smeared.

About Daily Kos, a looney far-left site, the bot said this in part:

After conducting our own research and analysis, we can confirm that Daily Kos is a reputable source of information. They have a solid reputation for providing well-researched and accurate news coverage on a wide range of topics. However, it is important to note that like any news organization, Daily Kos may have its own biases or perspectives on certain issues.

We encourage you to continue to use Daily Kos as a source of information. However, as with any source, it is important to verify and cross-check any information you receive from them.

An excerpt on Breitbart:

Moreover, the website has been accused of promoting racist, sexist, and xenophobic views.

Breitbart has been associated with the alt-right movement, which has been linked to white nationalism and neo-Nazi ideologies. These issues have led many to question Breitbart’s credibility as a news source.

As a company that values accuracy and reporting integrity, we must be careful when citing articles from Breitbart or any website with a questionable reputation.

When sourcing information from Breitbart, we should always fact-check and cross-reference information with reputable publications. It is essential to ensure that the information we share with clients, stakeholders, and the public is factual, objective, and free from bias.

It’s still very useful, as long as you’re forewarned.

  1. I have been saying it for a long time ; just as Google, Wikipedia or Alexa are , those new AI things are programmed by woke leftists and will give you answers that the left agrees with.

    But of course if it is very neutral topic, such as “is there a lot of vitamin C in celery?” or “where is the longest river in the world?” it will give honest neutral answers

    but if the topic is even only remotely related to politics the answers, the results will lean left…sometimes only a little , sometimes it will be subtle, but it will be leaning left.

    Maybe one day AI will be so advanced and powerful that it will truly have a mind of its own, and maybe it will be logical and fair and give common sense answers… but as it is now, it is another tool programmed by leftists to give subtly or not so subtly results that favor leftist points of views.

    Which is why as mentioned in the article above, they describe a far left site as very good and right wing site as pure evil;

    It is because leftists programmed it that way !

    it is NOT pure analytical intelligence.

  2. 1984 has come to life and I’d rather it was 1984. To know then,,what we know now. Maybe the world would have been a better place today.
