No wonder all these useless artificial intelligence programs just regurgitate extremist left-wing rhetoric. The companies programing these systems are purposefully excluding websites that don’t toe the far left’s ideological line, according to a new report on Internet censorship.

It’s the perfect example of the old saying of “garbage in, garbage out.”

If all these artificial “intelligence” systems are only programed to reference extreme, left-wing source material, of course all they are going to regurgitate is left-wing gibberish.

The news comes from Breitbart Tech News:

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.”

X/Twitter user Elephant Civics says he discovered the blacklist while asking ChatGPT to provide a list of credible and non-credible news sources.

ChatGPT explained that it is forbidden from using some sources, as a result of “features in ChatGPT’s Large Language Model (LLM) like AI safety measures, guardrails, dataset/output/prompt filtering, and human-in-the-loop mechanisms are designed to ensure the model operates within ethical, legal, and quality bounds.”

In other words, if ChatGPT was accurately recounting its policies in this case, this means that it is forbidden from using forbidden sources. Large Language Models (LLM) like ChatGPT deliver responses, and arguably even develop a worldview, based on the combination of data they are fed and rules put in place by developers. If the list discovered by Elephant Civics exists, it means ChatGPT is forbidden from using a number of conservative sources to shape its worldview and deliver responses.

It’s no wonder that none of these AI programs are useful at all. They are being engineered to be useless!
