    Default Liars and Psychopaths? Really?

    On youtube, if you want to get video suggestions for how to spot liars, psychopaths, narcissists, etc., just do a search for any new age type subject such as, say project avalon or camelot. I use a vpn and have firefox clear out cookies on exit (and I do not sign in), so I know that this is purely programmed bias on the part of google and not based on any past browsing history. Google wants you to be thinking about liars and psychopaths when you're looking for alternative information, apparently. It happens every time. Check it out.

    Agreed. It's getting harder to find what I'm after. Many a time I get back a whole swathe of BBC and Guardian pages for the first 10 to 20 results when what I really want is much more nuts and bolts information

    Without all the bias that exists, as mentioned in the OP.
    Any good courses, manuals…?

    I find search engines to be fairly useless unless I am looking for a mainstream source. I find that the Russian version of Yandex (https://yandex.ru/) is a little tiny bit better but it’s somewhat tricky navigating in Russian (for a non speaker) and of course it has many of the same problems as other search engines.

    I mostly rely on links posted in fairly obscure blogs and on specific people whose tweets I read on twitter. For the areas I am interested in (mostly geopolitics, cultural perspectives) it’s taken me quite some time to find a range of useful blogs and tweeters who are less biased and partisan and are also not on the conspiritainment or political polemic bandwagon. I also sometimes choose to “read through the bias” (sometimes extremely pronounced and hateful) of certain blogs because once the bias is set aside, they do share interesting information. Having said this, I am always on the look out for new ones to add to my “scan through list” and I also remove a few when I find they no longer seem useful.

    If I search for satanists instead of new age subjects, the suggested videos on narcissism, borderline personality, etc., go away...
