It is amazing the historical past of free press suppression amongst those who would like to take or remain in handle. And more than one philosopher has noted that; He Who owns The Media, Owns The Minds With the People.
Today we see Silicon Pit, namely Google and Facebook planning to eliminate what they call “Fake News” from other websites, namely Google News and also Facebook’s News Feed. Of training course, this presents a rather slippery slope – certainly one of mass censorship. Indeed, both companies are already caught suppressing right-wing news and also enhancing positive news towards left-leaning people in politics.
In Washington DC, there is work to stop Fake News in the media or online to help keep foreign governments from trying to be able to subvert our elections or poison the minds individuals people from propaganda. Still, it really is obvious by the mainstream media’s reporting with this effort in Washington DC the target is right-wing alternative on the web news. The mainstream media is worried it is losing millions of viewers, thus a large amount of advertising revenues due to be able to online news sites – competition they’d prefer never to have. Are all these makes; the mainstream media, Democrat Get together, and major Internet social networks and engines like google converging to control the our own information and control the minds with the masses?
Well, if history will be any judge, then the response is yes. All dictatorships, communist nations around the world, and even the NAZI regime worked quite difficult to control the news. Also the terrorists, spies and nation-states that sponsor terrorism utilize the news for propaganda.
There was an appealing article in Foreign Affairs printed on January 7, 2014 called; “Al Jazeera’s ‘False News’ Difficulty, ” by Judy Bachrach.

“The author of
that article placed Israel right nearby the central fulcrum of their thinking,
then gives a contradictor final, then sums it up in this way: 1. Can’t blame
them regarding abusing journalist who lie,
a couple of. Guess, I should side with all the liars because 2nd Amendment says – it really is their right to lie. inches
The think tanker type notes that is dangerous emotional banter, rather than facts and declares he’d rather read something in regards to the American Networks because he often has to attend BBC, and other media outlets to obtain the real news.
Wow, now people are some interesting comments without a doubt. Still, when I look at news media like RT (Russian TV) it often features a negative slant towards the US ALL, sometimes they are right and make us try the mirror, sometimes it’s merely persnickety negative diatribes. More being a clock, right a couple of times per day. Al Jazeera The usa, I believe is often a lot better than RT, but not when it concerns Middle East sectarian issues, all of them are one-way also. RT is typically leftist slant, makes sense. Contemporary news, well it takes a sharp eye and commitment to learn between the type, bullet items and sound bites.
