It is wonderful the story of free press suppression amongst those that would like to take or perhaps remain in control. And multiple philosopher has noted that; He Who Owns The Media, Owns The Minds Of The People. Today we observe Silicon Valley, namely Google and Facebook desiring to eliminate what they call “Fake News” from the websites of theirs, namely Google News and Facebook’s News Feed. Of course, this provides quite an slippery slope – among mass censorship. Certainly, both companies are caught suppressing right wing news and enhancing news that is positive towards left-leaning politicians.
In Washington DC, there’s work to avoid Fake News in the press or perhaps online to keep foreign governments from trying to subvert the elections of ours or poison the minds of the people of ours from propaganda. Still, it’s apparent by the mainstream media’s reporting on this effort in Washington DC the target is right wing alternative online news. The mainstream media is worried it is losing millions of viewers, thus a large amount of advertising revenues as a consequence of internet news sites – competition they’d prefer never to have. Are all these forces; the mainstream media, Democrat Party, and key Internet social networks and online search engine converging to manage the our info and control the minds of the masses?
Well, if history is just about any judge, then the answer is yes. All dictatorships, communist countries around the world, as well as the NAZI regime worked quite hard to control the news. Actually the terrorists, spies & nation states which usually sponsor terrorism work with the media for propaganda.
There was a fascinating article in Foreign Affairs published on January seven, 2014 titled; “Al Jazeera’s’ False News’ Problem,” by Judy Bachrach. The way I see this’s that each news agency has an agenda, and one hell of a lot of energy having the brains of the masses. When discussing this at the think tank of ours, one thinker noted;
“The creator of that post placed Israel directly near the main fulcrum of the judgement of theirs, now 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 says – it’s their right to lie.”

The think tanker type notes that this’s dangerous mental banter, rather compared to facts and states he would rather read something about the American Networks since he usually has to go to BBC, as well as other media outlets to discover the great news.
Wow, now those’re a few interesting comments indeed. Nonetheless, when I look at news media like RT (Russian TV) it typically carries a bad slant towards the US, there are times when they’re correct and help to make us search in the mirror, there are times when it’s only persnickety negative diatribes. More like a clock, correct a couple of times every single day. Al Jazeera America, I think is often better than RT, although not in relation to Middle East sectarian issues, they are all one way also. RT is usually leftist slant, makes sense. Modern day current information, well it requires a sharp eye and determination to read between the sort, bullet points and sound bites.
When we look at FOX News they lean right, and CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, all lean to the left and appear to be out to attack anything on the right. Thus, I ask; what’s actually FAKE NEWS – individuals – it’s all fake news, that’s the take of mine.
