It’s remarkable the history of free press suppression amongst those who want to take or even remain in control. And multiple philosopher has mentioned that; He Who Owns The Media, Owns The Minds Of The People. Today we observe Silicon Valley, namely Facebook and Google wanting to eliminate whatever they call “Fake News” from their sites, namely Google News and Facebook’s News Feed. Of course, this presents quite an slippery slope – among mass censorship. Really, both companies have been found 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 stay international governments from trying to subvert our elections or even poison the minds of our folks from propaganda. Nevertheless, it is evident by the mainstream media’s reporting on this particular energy in Washington DC the goal is right wing alternative online news. The mainstream media is worried that it’s losing millions of viewers, thus a large amount of advertising revenues because of internet news sites – competition they would prefer never to have. Are all these forces; the mainstream media, Democrat Party, and major Internet social networks and online search engine converging to control the our info and limit the thoughts of the masses?
Well, if history is just about any judge, then the solution is yes. All dictatorships, communist countries, as well as the NAZI regime worked quite hard to manage the news. Actually the terrorists, spies & nation-states which usually sponsor terrorism work with the news for propaganda.
There was a unique article in Foreign Affairs posted on January 7, 2014 titled; “Al Jazeera’s’ False News’ Problem,” by Judy Bachrach. Exactly how I see this is that every news agency has an agenda, and one hell of a lot of energy owning the thoughts of the people. When speaking about this at our think tank, one thinker noted;
“The author of that article placed Israel directly near the main fulcrum of the judgement of theirs, then provides a contradictor closing, then sums it up this way: one. Cannot blame them for abusing journalist that lie,
2. Guess, I must side together with the liars because 2nd Amendment claims – it is their best to lie.”
The think tanker style notes that this is dangerous mental banter, rather compared to facts and states he would rather read something about the American Networks because he often has to go to BBC, as well as other media outlets to get the great news.
Wow, now those are some interesting comments indeed. Nonetheless, when I glance at news media like RT (Russian TV) it often provides a bad slant towards the US, sometimes they are right and make us look in the mirror, there are times when it’s only persnickety negative diatribes. More like a clock, correct a couple of times each day. Al Jazeera America, I think is frequently better than RT, although not with regards to Middle East sectarian problems, they are all one way also. RT is generally leftist slant, makes sense. Modern day current information, well it requires a sharp eye and commitment 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 over the right. Hence, I ask; what is really FAKE NEWS – folks – it is all fake news, that’s my take.
