It’s amazing the story of free press suppression amongst individuals who would like to take or perhaps remain in control. And multiple philosopher has mentioned that; He Who Owns The Media, Owns The Minds Of The People. Today we see Silicon Valley, namely Google and Facebook wishing to eliminate whatever they call “Fake News” from the sites of theirs, namely Google News as well as Facebook’s News Feed. Of course, this provides a rather slippery slope – among mass censorship. Really, both businesses are caught suppressing right-wing news and enhancing news that is positive towards left-leaning politicians.
In Washington DC, there is work to prevent Fake News in the media or perhaps online to keep international governments from attempting to subvert the elections of ours or perhaps poison the minds of our people from propaganda. Nonetheless, it’s apparent by the mainstream media’s reporting on this particular energy in Washington DC the target is right wing alternative online news. The mainstream media is concerned it’s losing millions of visitors, thus a lot of advertising revenues because of web based news sites – competition they would prefer never to have. Are all these forces; the mainstream press, Democrat Party, and major Internet social networks and search engines converging to handle the our information and limit the minds of the masses?
Well, if the historical past is every judge, then the solution is yes. All dictatorships, communist nations, as well as the NAZI regime worked incredibly tough manage the news. Even the terrorists, spies & nation-states that sponsor terrorism work with the news for propaganda.
There was a fascinating article in Foreign Affairs posted on January 7, 2014 titled; “Al Jazeera’s’ False News’ Problem,” by Judy Bachrach. The way I see this’s that every information agency has an agenda, and one hell of a great deal of power owning the brains of the masses. When talking about this at the think tank of ours, one thinker noted;
“The writer of that article placed Israel directly near the main fulcrum of the judgement of theirs, now gives a contradictor closing, then sums it up this way: one. Can’t blame them for not taking care of journalist that lie,
2. Guess, bangla newspapers must side with the liars because 2nd Amendment claims – it is their right to lie.”
The think tanker type notes that this is dangerous psychological banter, rather compared to states and facts he would rather read a thing about the American Networks because he generally has going to BBC, and other media outlets to find the great news.
Wow, now those’re a couple of interesting comments indeed. Still, when I glance at news media like RT (Russian TV) it usually provides a negative slant towards the US, at times they’re right and make us search in the mirror, sometimes it’s only persnickety negative diatribes. A lot more like a clock, correct a few of times every single day. Al Jazeera America, I feel is often better compared to RT, and not with regards to Middle East sectarian problems, they are all one-way also. RT is usually leftist slant, makes sense. Modern day news, well it takes a sharp eye and dedication to read between the form, bullet points and sound bites.
When we take a look at FOX News they lean right, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and CNN, just about all lean to th
