It’s amazing the story of free media suppression amongst those that want to take or perhaps remain in control. And more than one philosopher has noted that; He Who Owns The Media, Owns The Minds Of The People. Today we observe Silicon Valley, namely Google and Facebook wanting to eliminate what they call “Fake News” from the websites of theirs, namely Google News as well as Facebook’s News Feed. Naturally, this provides a very slippery slope – among mass censorship. Certainly, both businesses have been seen suppressing right-wing news and enhancing positive news towards left leaning politicians.

In Washington DC, there is work to prevent Fake News in the media or even online to keep international governments from trying to subvert our elections or perhaps poison the minds of our folks from propaganda. Nonetheless, it’s evident by the mainstream media’s reporting on this particular effort in Washington DC the goal is right wing alternative online news. The mainstream media is worried it’s losing millions of viewers, thus a large amount of advertising revenues as a result of internet news sites – competition they would prefer never to have. Are all these forces; the mainstream press, Democrat Party, and significant Internet social networks and search engines converging to regulate the our information and put a cap on the thoughts of the masses?
Effectively, if history is any judge, then the answer is yes. All dictatorships, communist countries around the world, as well as the NAZI regime worked quite tough control the news. Even the terrorists, spies & nation states which sponsor terrorism make use of the media for propaganda.
There was a unique article in Foreign Affairs posted on January seven, 2014 titled; “Al Jazeera’s’ False News’ Problem,” by Judy Bachrach. Just how I see this is that every information agency has an agenda, and one hell of a lot of energy using the brains of the masses. When speaking about this at the think tank of ours, one thinker noted;
“The writer of that post placed Israel directly near the central fulcrum of their judgement, now gives a contradictor closing, then sums it up this way: one. Can’t blame them for abusing journalist who lie,
2. Guess, I have to side together with the liars because 2nd Amendment states – it’s their best to lie.”
The think tanker style notes that this is dangerous emotional banter, rather compared to states and facts he would rather read something about the American Networks because he often has to go to BBC, and other media outlets to discover the great news.
Wow, now those are some interesting comments indeed. Still, when I look at news media as RT (Russian TV) it typically carries a bad slant towards the US, sometimes they’re accurate and make us search in the mirror, there are times when it’s merely persnickety negative diatribes. More like a clock, correct a couple of times each day. Al Jazeera America, I think is often better than RT, but not when it comes to Middle East sectarian issues, they’re all one way also. RT is usually leftist slant, makes sense. Modern day current information, well it requires a sharp eye and dedication to read between the form, bullet points and sound bites.
When we look at FOX News they lean right, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and CNN, all lean on the left and seem to be out to attack something on the right. And so, I ask; what’s really FAKE NEWS – people – it’s all fake news, that’s the take of mine.
