    Political Bias?

    jjc225

      It appears that McAfee web screening has a liberal bias.  Almost all the conservative websites I've visited over the first two weeks of having McAfee Antivirus Plus are flagging things as unsafe and so forth.  But this is not happening at liberal websites.  The big difference I have seen is at FoxNews website and MSNBC website.  MSNBC comes back clean, while FoxNews is flagged.  This is also the pattern for lesser known websites: across the board the conservative websites get flagged while the liberal ones do not.

       

      So what is going on?  Any explanations?

          What exactly are you trying to say?

           

          Who or what is flagging what things as unsafe?
