Text_factory that can support 8-bit bytestrings

I wrote a Python script that will download a webpage, extract a portion of the text displayed on the page and write the extracted portion to an SQLite database. When I ran the script, I saw the message below displayed:

You must not use 8-bit bytestrings unless you use a text_factory that can interpret 8-bit bytestrings (like text_factory = str). It is highly recommended that you instead just switch your application to Unicode strings.

I had created the following function to establish the connection to the SQLITE 3 database:

def create_connection (db_file):
   """ Create a database connection to an SQL database
       Return connection object or none """
      conn = sqlite3.connect(db_file)
      return conn
   except Exception as e:
   return None
