It can be amazing the history of free press suppression between those who wish to take or remain in control. And more than one thinker has noted that; This individual Who Owns The Multimedia, Owns The Minds Of The People. Today we see Silicon Valley, particularly Google and Facebook planning to eliminate what they call “Fake News” from their websites, namely Google Information and Facebook’s News Give food to. Of course, this reveals a rather slippery mountain – one of mass censorship. Indeed, both companies have been caught quelling right-wing news and boosting positive news towards left-leaning politicians. Silvassa Newspaper
In Washington POWER, there is work to prevent Fake News in the media or online to keep foreign authorities from looking to subvert our elections or poison the minds of your people from propaganda. Still, it is clear by the popular media’s reporting on this effort in Washington POWER that the target is right-wing alternative online media. The mainstream media is worried that it is losing countless viewers, thus huge amounts of advertising revenues due to online news sites – competition they’d prefer not to have. Are all these forces; the mainstream mass media, Democrat Party, and major Internet internet sites and search engines converging to regulate the our information and control the minds of the masses?
Well, if background is any judge, then the answer is certainly. All dictatorships, communist countries, and even the FASCISTA regime worked very hard to control good news. Possibly the terrorists, spies and nation-states that sponsor terrorism use the news for propaganda.
There was an interesting article in International Affairs published on January 7, 2014 titled; “Al Jazeera’s ‘False News’ Trouble, ” by Judy Bachrach. The way I see this is that every news agency has an agenda, and one heck of a lot of power owning the thoughts of the people. Once discussing this at our think tank, one thinker noted;
“The author of that article located His home country of israel right close to the main fulcrum of their judgement, then gives a contradictor final, then sums it up this way: 1. Won’t be able to blame them for mistreating journalist who lie,
2. Guess, I should part with the liars because 2nd Amendment states – it is their right to lie. ”
The think tanker type records that this is dangerous emotional banter, rather than facts and states he would rather read something about the American Networks because he often needs to go to BBC, and other media outlets to get the real news.
Seriously, now those are some interesting comments indeed. Nonetheless, when I check out reports media like RT (Russian TV) it often has a bad slant towards the US, sometimes they are right and make all of us look in the hand mirror, sometimes it’s just persnickety negative diatribes. More like a clock, right a couple of times every day. Al Jazeera America, I really believe is often better than RT, but not when it comes to Middle East sectarian issues, they all are visible also. RT is usually leftist slant, makes sense. Present day news, well it requires a clear , crisp eye and determination to see between the type, bullet points and audio bites.
Whenever we look at FOX News they slim right, and CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, all trim to the left and appear to be away to attack anything on the right. So, I actually ask; what is very IMITATION NEWS – folks – it’s all fake information, that’s my take.
