Amazon Prime is filled with Alex Jones conspiracy theory videos it calls 'documentaries'

TwitterFacebook

Amazon Prime’s documentary genre features many Academy Award-winning feats of investigative journalism. But it has a problem: Amazon categorizes legitimate documentaries from HBO and PBS in the same way that it does conspiracy theory films from the likes of Alex Jones.

The Telegraph first reported the troubling appearance of conspiracy theory “documentaries” on the streaming platform, in particular films from Jones and noted crazy-person David Icke. Jones is the talking head of InfoWars, who is currently being sued by families of Sandy Hook shooting victims for claiming that the deaths of their children was a hoax.

Trading Pokémon on Pokémon Go is finally a thing: here's how to do it

TwitterFacebook

Pokémon Go trainers, brace yourselves. You can begin trading Pokémon this week.

The popular mobile game has added a slew of features since its 2016 launch, but a new addition reminiscent of the classic Pokémon Game Boy games will finally roll out this week.

There will also be Alolan forms (a type of Pokémon) that trainers can only obtain by working together with their friends, and other rewards that stem from building strong friendships in the game, such as Stardust discounts. Read more…

Amazon and Walmart have sick deals on 4K smart TVs this week from brands like Samsung, LG, and VIZIO

TwitterFacebook

I guess the World Cup is kind of a big deal, huh? It’s like even if you don’t care about sports, you still kinda care about the World Cup.

It’s no wonder everyone is screaming (and jumping) while they watch — games and goals are so fast and even the tiniest of movements can lead to a huge play, so missing even a second due to lag or shitty resolution is unacceptable.

If you’re tired of squinting to see where the ball went on your laptop or are tired of going to the bar only to crane your neck for 90 mins just to catch a sliver of the TV, we got you. While we don’t have tickets for you to attend a game in Russia, we do have deals on 4K smart TVs from Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Dell, which is basically the next best thing. Read more…
