The term, “Fake News,” as used by the mainstream media, is literally doublespeak that is intended to make you, the public, believe that the fake news put out by the mainstream media itself is not fake but that those that dare to call out the mainstream on its lies are the fakes and are dangerous, and must be silenced. The words, “Fake News,” as used by the mainstream media are cover words for putting a gag order on the thought and speech of our once-constitutional American republic.
The words, “Fake News,” to be used effectively by the mainstream – since they represent contentless misdirection – must ever and always be shouted, as in, FAKE NEWS, so as to render the hearer mindlessly terrified. Below are a few salient remarks from, no doubt, perported FAKE NEWS outlets. Hopefully, the shouting of FAKE NEWS has rendered you mentally compliant and you will ignore what is said below.
Alex Thomas, of Intellihub, says that, “Obama blames ‘domestic propagandists’ for supposed foreign sponsored fake news.” Hmm, that doesn’t help me if I don’t know in advance which websites or posts to disbelieve. Maybe he can sign an executive order.
Obama could take a hint from Germany, apparently. Claire Bernish, of The Free Thought Project, says that according to Deutsche Welle, a newly passed German law, “would allow putative ‘victims’ of fake news or hate speech to contact Facebook and request action be taken. ‘If, after appropriate examination, Facebook does not delete the offending message within 24 hours,’ Oppermann continued, ‘it should expect individual fines of up to 500,000 euros ($523,320).'”
And it is instructive to ask, who really likes and is promoting the FAKE NEWS meme, and who will the FAKE NEWS gatekeepers be? Michael Depinto, of Freedom Outpost, says that George Soros is funding Facebook’s new “Fake News Fact Checking” Group. He also says,
In the video below, I review several stories about George Soros that should scare the heck out of all Americans
Just yesterday, Facebook posted the following press release to their website detailing their plans to use a “third-party fact checking organization,” known as The Poynter Institute, to flag “fake news.” The role of the “fact checkers” will be to review news stories and flag anything they deem to be “fake” so that it can be deprioritized on Facebook’s news feed. …
A quick review of Poynter’s website reveals that the organization is funded by the who’s who of leftist billionaires including George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Google, and Ebay founder Pierre Omidyar’s Omidyar Network. Well that seem fairly bipartisan, right? … (George Soros Funding Facebook’s New “Fake News Fact Checking” Group, 12/17/16)
Dr. Eowyn, of Fellowship of the Minds, chimes in that on December 16th, “DCG published this post, ‘Facebook is going to use Snopes and other fact-checkers to combat and bury “fake news“‘. Using Snopes as an authority is laughable. According to independent investigative reporter Wayne Madsen, ‘The so-called “fact-checking” authentication website Snopes.com is the go-to website for CIA propaganda.'”
Tim Brown, of Freedom Outpost, says, “Award winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson has come out and said that the recent brouhaha over ‘fake news‘ is nothing more than a ‘propaganda campaign’ in order to censor free speech and freedom of the press by the Obama administration and the likes of Hillary Clinton.”
