Fake News Used As Global Censorship Tool

The Western Main Stream Media’s credibility is crumbling as the world looks on. The destruction has been a multi-decade process caused by the blatant dishonesty of western media outlets. Western Main Stream Media has been caught lying to its customers so many times that finally people started getting their information from alternative sources.
Observing that the Alternative Honest Media is breaking their stranglehold on information dissemination; the Main Stream Media (MSM) is desperately calling on their partners-Western Governments-to do something about the People’s desire to receive honest information.
Western Governments and their MSM partners are responding by waging a war on Free Speech. Here is how it works:
In the United States, the new buzz word of the globalist/George Soros type groups is Fake News. Large news outlets like the New York Times, which have been consistently dishonest, are calling on Private Corporations like Facebook and Twitter to block Fake News from their sites and now we are beginning to hear members of the U.S. government talking about the need to destroy Fake News.
But, who will decide which information is Fake News: Private Corporations and the Government. Private companies like Facebook will be determine what is real information and what is fake information. Fake News will be determined to be any information which challenges the official narrative of the government and the dying MSM.
Here is what the New York Times editorial board had to say about the issue in an article called,
Most of the fake news stories are produced by scammers looking to make a quick buck. The vast majority of them take far-right positions. But a big part of the responsibility for this scourge rests with internet companies like Facebook and Google, which have made it possible for fake news to be shared nearly instantly with millions of users and have been slow to block it from their sites….Blocking misinformation will help protect the company’s brand and credibility.
In the European Union, the centralized, un-elected Parliament recently passed a resolution to guard against what they call Propaganda, see here.
MEPs suggest reinforcing the EU’s tiny “strategic communication” task force and investing more in awareness raising, education, online and local media, investigative journalism and information literacy.
The European Union is going to invest more money into strategic communication and into investigative journalism. That translates into ‘the government is going to spend a bunch of money to educate the People as to what is honest information.’ As usual, governments do not believe YOU know how to discern the most basic of adult functions: What to believe and what not to believe. Maybe this is due to the fact that governments are the Source of most real fake news as indicated in this article at zerohedge.com:
For the first time in human history, there is a concerted strategy to manipulate global perception. And the mass media are operating as its compliant assistants, failing both to resist it and to expose it, writes investigative journalist Nick Davies. “The sheer ease with which this machinery has been able to do its work reflects a creeping structural weakness which now afflicts the production of our news.”
“More than 400 American journalists … in the past twenty five years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency… There was cooperation, accommodation and overlap. Journalists provided a full range of clandestine services… Reporters shared their notebooks with the CIA. Editors shared their staffs. Some of the journalists were Pulitzer Prize winners, distinguished reporters… In many instances, CIA documents show, journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.”
The Pentagon has now designated “information operations” as its fifth “core competency” alongside land, sea, air and special forces. Since October 2006, every brigade, division and corps in the US military has had its own “psy-op” element producing output for local media. This military activity is linked to the State Department’s campaign of “public diplomacy” which includes funding radio stations and news websites.
The Power Bloc comprised of Western Governments and Western Media have controlled the dissemination of information for decades and have perpetrated abuses on the People of the world. This same power bloc are currently watching their grip on Information taken away from them by the same People which they have abused. And they are panicking!
Real Freedom operates in a ‘Free Market of Ideas’. In this free market of ideas, all ideas and opinions are allowed to be presented and the People can decide what is True and which Ideas have Value.
The Controllers are losing their control due to a real independent media created by Individuals which is using the Truth as a weapon against their Authoritarianism. These Controllers are now desperate and will try to use both Corporate and Governmental power to block the Truth from destroying them.
Pay attention when you hear the term ‘Fake News’ or ‘Russian Media Influence’. The Enemy is gearing up its counter-attack on global Free Speech. They want to create a Global System of Control and allowing the Truth to be told about their endeavors is an obstacle to their success. Don’t let the Globalists Re-Brand the Truth as Lies-and their Lies as the Truth.
Scream the Truth at them! And They will Fall! No other weapon is needed.
