    Editor’s Comment: There is no shame whatsoever in the powers that be. Despite the fact that the “mainstream media” routinely distorts facts, reads from scripts and teleprompters and arguably even deliberately frames falsities, it is the alternative media and the dissenting voice that is being labeled as “fake,” untruthful and unworthy of anyone who might care to read it.

    Rather than continue competing with independent journalists, caught-on-phone reports and voices from the other side of complex issues, the powers that be would prefer to try to put the genie back in the bottle, and to put bumpers on the bowling lanes of the world wide web. Streamlined, authorized, sanitized and, ultimately, corporate friendly. What will the future look like? Will anyone even notice when the truth disappears?

    Facebook to Decide What’s Real Vs. Fake News for Users

    by Adan Salazar

    Social media giant Facebook has announced the site will prompt users if they attempt to share news articles disputed by third parties, the latest in an array of efforts to stifle independent media.

    In an announcement Thursday, Facebook said it would aid the spread of “hoaxes and fake news” by partnering with media organizations and fact-checkers, including Snopes, ABC News, The Washington Post and The Poynter Institute.

    In Facebook’s own words:

    “If the fact checking organizations identify a story as fake, it will get flagged as disputed and there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining why. Stories that have been disputed may also appear lower in News Feed.”

    The site explains: “Once a story is flagged, it can’t be made into an ad and promoted, either.”

    If a story is proven fake, users will be shown a prompt that says, “Disputed by 3rd parties,” when they attempt to share the article.


    Facebook claims it will focus on “the worst of the worst, on the clear hoaxes spread by spammers for their own gain, and on engaging both our community and third party organizations.”

    CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a post Thursday said the new steps would help “build a more informed community and fight misinformation.”

    As noted by Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson, Facebook’s appointment of establishment media organizations as their foremost authorities on fake news is puzzling given a majority of Americans do not trust the mainstream media.

    And of course the organizations chosen to sort fake from real news aren’t infallible either. Just last week The Washington Post, one of Facebook’s new fact checkers, had to retract a story claiming various media outfits were working with the Russians to push Kremlin propaganda.

    Additionally, The Poynter Institute’s fact checking project, launched last year, was revealed to have been funded by grants from organizations with close ties to the Obama White House, guaranteeing bias will be prevalent in the censorship of so-called fake news.

    While Facebook claims it’s protecting users from the scourge of fake news, it’s more likely the company will employ the new feature to blacklist information which runs contrary to mainstream media narratives.

      1. Fakebook!

        • Who in the hell uses Facebook? The sheep do.

          • What is facebook?

            • faceplant? i would HOPE that anyone here stupid enough to still be using it would take a bath with their toaster.

          • I get the same feeling being off grid as I do being off Facebook.

      2. Facebook to “Purge Fake News” And Control Online Flow of Information

        This is the best thing that Facebook/Mark Zuckerberg could of done to itself. This will self implode and I could see many dropping Facebook and continue their social media activities over at their competitor – Seen Life.

        Nice job douche bags(facebook) for censoring freedom of speech. It will be your downfall and end up looking like “MySpace” currently is … obsolete and outdated.

      3. I thought he said, purge fake Jews! Damn. I thought they were faking them, too. What next?

      4. Facebook didn’t ban me … I banned them.
        Whenever you corner the libs over @ CNN -Facebook they put you up on blocks so you can’t see their comments… COWARDS
        Had two Obama stooges that do nothing but scour the web for peeps making false comments about the chosen one call me out on my sources.
        My source was a CNN/Rasmussen poll that just came out that morning and they hadn’t seen it yet.
        After that they all put me up on blocks…HAHAHAHAHAHAHA..LOSERS

      5. If you are on Fascistbook controlled completely by a psychopath Globalist Corporatist Fascist, and I do not care what insane reason you have, including making yourself “rich and great again”….YOU ARE A FASCIST, and there is no way around that FACT. If you support a Fascist with a Fascist Social Media Platform in any way…YOU ARE A FASCIST..it is that simple cowards.

      6. Big real, not fake stories the mainstream media either overlooked or gave little coverage to this year:

        1) Corruption at the UN
        2) Corruption involving the Secretary General of the UN
        3) US technology companies not paying tax
        4) The global population explosion crisis
        5) The explosion in sex crimes in Europe as a result of the migrant crisis
        6) The explosion in general crime in Europe as a result of the migrant crisis
        7) The violent assaults on people at border points leading to the UK from Europe
        8) The economic warfare programme directed at Europe
        9) Huma Abadin, Saudi agent, honey trap and sex crimes enabler
        10) The expansion of the global US dollar war to Africa

        Stick that in your Snopes and smoke it…

      7. This crackdown on our First Amendment right to freedom of speech is nothing compared to what is happening in Europe. In any tyranny, the dictator dictates. The dictator tells you what to do and what to say. The dictator tells you what is truth and what is a lie; in-other-words, what is real and what is a hoax.

        This weekend it became a crime in Europe not only to call out the gasings of six million J*ws as a terrible hoax; but, as of now, it is a crime to criticize any J*w, anything that J*ws do, and even to state certain admitted facts, admitted by J*ws themselves, which would bring about questions about the authenticity of the story.

        For example. You should not say that the chimneys were built after the war, even though J*ws admit this fact. Another thing you should never say is that eye witnesses describe the bodies of the gassed victims as blue, when it is a fact that gas victims turn red, bright cherry red. This inconsistency between the eye witness testimony and reality should never be spoken about.

        Another thing which is verboten, is to talk about the autopsies of Concentration Camp inmates which turned up not a single case of death by poison or gas, but instead which found death by typhus and malnutrition.

        Then of course you are forbidden to talk with the wardens or scientists involved in real Gasings of criminals and how those facts align with the stories of the six million gasings. Then there is the report of the professional engineer who designed gas chambers. He was sent to investigate and discovered that it was impossible to gas anyone in the structures where these atrocities were said to have happened. Don’t repeat that as it is a crime even if it is true. It is a crime to speak the truth under penalty of prison.

        So now we know where we are heading. Today Europe. Tomorrow the United States.

        Anti semen is him is a crime.

        In Russia it was punishable by death.

        We are under an oppressive regime of J*ws who are highly organized, ruthless, criminal, and who control the money.
        They control academia, medicine, publishing, TV and movies, the U.S. congress & senate, the Supreme Court, and much more.

        It is only a matter of time before the crack down and we either succumb or not.
        But for now Sucker bird will censor face recognition and book or Facebook.

        • B from CA, no judenrat, especially Zuckerberg, tells me what to say or think. I don’t use any social media, period. I don’t play well with anyone who promotes censorship.

      8. I don’t use facebook. So the can kiss my lily white ASA!!!!

      9. 1984 was supposed to be a futuristic fantasy novel not a templet for society.

      10. Everyone should leave Facebook. Watch the stock go to nothing.

      11. I lived and worked in Silicon Valley, CA for almost 20 yrs during the tech boom (1988-2007) and still have contacts there. These credible sources, (some of whom voted for Trump)told me that Trump recently met privately with Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg in Silicon Valley, CA, and as POTUS he cut a deal with Zuckerberg for this censoring to happen as soon as he is inaugurated.

        Additionally, and much to my non-surprise, “Control on-line flow” equates to Trump not allowing anything negative to be said about him or his Cabinet/team. So, he will also not allow anything negative to be said about him or his decisions, or about his family on any social media. Not one word. Positive comments only. Period.

        Controlled censorship, that’s the latest. Basically, Mark Zuckerberg is simply taking (silent) orders from the POTUS…. so can’t blame him.

        • Suckerberg was caught on am open mike talking to Merkle. She asked him to cencor FB on insults to mulim immigrants. He agreed that process was being initated presently. That was months ago. Nice try to put the blame on Trump.
          Have you not noticed, all of the Western governments show Islamic immigrants prilivages not extended to their citizens? The Western countries are quietly being molded into Sharia law. [NWO] Rembember when Obama said “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
          Well, it’s here. Guarded and backed by an electronic fence we are bound in, by surveillence. [i.e. cell phones, computers, OnStar, online ‘wearables’ etc.]
          Assuring our adherence to and reverence for. . . . . Islam.
          The Bible clearly states in the End Times, there WILL be a one world govenment, a one world religion, and a one world currency. Islam is already a religion, and a government. All we need is the currency!

      12. Do you people have no other way to communicate? Why allow these people this power over you? My middle finger to Facebook!

        • evidently the dumb masses don’t know what e-mail is?

      13. The purpose of the First Amendment was to prevent government from being the arbiter of “truth” and with it the venue of information. While the First Amendment is intentionally a wide brush its center is political. Government, or its agents both overt and covert, deciding what is and isn’t valid criticism of government defies the letter, intent and core of the most precious Right within the Bill Of Rights.

      14. This effort by FACEBOOK to control the exchange of information reminds me of the book, 1984. These PROGRESSIVES can’t keep their dirty paws off of free discussion. I don’t need those imbeciles censoring my discussions and I resent their efforts very much. I’ll decide what information is appropriate.

      15. On a related note. Beware the Progressives (stealth communists) that hide behind their interpretation of the Constitution. They remind me of the Muslim terrorists that practice takiyah (lying to infidels – that’s what they call us behind closed doors). The Progressives want to complete Obummer’s removal of our sovereignty by acting like the Constitution supports their positions.

      16. So then, only Establishment-approved “news” (propaganda) will be allowed.

      17. I’m not even going to get into this.
        There’s so much trash out there it’s sad really.
        Anyone that thinks Clinton won only 59 counties is a moron when a high school kid can go on the election board website and count the counties.
        Or Obamas birth certificate…hint its not fake. Not when anyone can go and read the dang newspaper that was printed back then…you do realize they are all on microfish…right. And yes I know that’s not how you spell it. Newspapers, especially local ones print birth and death records every day.
        Virtually ALL fake news is easily debunked if you just look things up.
        Even the fake news stories about who voted on what…every single vote in congress is recorded and you can see who voted for what. Each congressional session is typed up, and printed and available for checkout at any Federal Book Depository. I have no issue with getting rid of “fake” news.
