FACEBOOK ALREADY BLOCKING LINKS TO “FAKE NEWS”~U.S. GOVERNMENT BLAMES RUSSIANS & ALTERNATIVE MEDIA FOR CREATING “FAKE NEWS”
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
Facebook is already blocking links to so-called “fake news”
stories, despite the Washington Post being forced to admit that its own
definitive article on “fake news” was based on shoddy research.
Twitter user revealed how he tried to post an Alex Jones Channel video
about ‘PizzaGate’ on Facebook but was blocked from doing so because
Facebook characterized the YouTube link as “unsafe”.
suggests that more than just blocking alleged “fake news” websites,
Facebook is censoring certain topics from being posted altogether.

after pressure from academics, Google is also de-listing information
pertaining to criticism of Islam and information about black people
being over-represented in crime figures (which is an objective fact).
notion of social media websites blocking content they arbitrarily
decide to be “fake news” is chilling, especially given that the
Washington Post has now been forced to admit that its vaunted “fake news” exposé was itself fake after massive blow back.
lengthy editor’s note appeared on top of the original article in which
the editor not only distances the WaPo from the “experts” quoted in the
original article whose “work” served as the basis for the entire article
(and which became the most read WaPo story the day it was published)
but also admits the Post could not “vouch for the validity of
PropOrNot’s finding regarding any individual media outlet”, in effect
admitting the entire story may have been, drumroll “fake news” and
conceding the Bezos-owned publication may have engaged in defamation by
smearing numerous websites – Zero Hedge included – with patently false
and unsubstantiated allegations,” reports Zero Hedge.
as the bias-driven musings of a far-left social justice warrior, what
credibility does the mainstream media have left in lecturing everyone
else as to what constitutes “fake news”?
mainstream media: Calling everyone apart from yourself “fake news” is
kind of a hint that you just want to silence your competition.
