Facebook Will Ramp Up Censorship Leading Up To The Midterm Elections

Facebook is going all out for censorship in the weeks leading up to the midterm elections. Citing “fake news” (news the social media giant doesn’t like or disagrees with) Facebook will begin banning certain types of speech from the platform.

According to CNBC, Facebook doesn’t want to be known as the social media platform which bans free speech, but it’s probably already far too late for that. This latest ban on certain “fake news” butts up against free speech, but is also a sensitive area for the company, which has come under fire for its lax approach to “fake news” reports as seen as fake by liberals, and disinformation campaigns, which many erroneously believe affected the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, won by Donald Trump….

Google News’ Search Results Aren’t Rigged But They Are biased

A group called AllSides put out a report Tuesday which concludes that Google News’ search results are biased toward the left end of the political spectrum. However, the report also states that this bias seems to reflect the general bias of sites which are popular on the web and doesn’t represent evidence that Google is intentionally skewing results. In other words, Google’s results are biased but they aren’t rigged….

Nine Lies The Media Are Telling You About Elizabeth Warren’s DNA Test

Spreading lies to benefit the Democrat Party is what the establishment media do. For example, over the weekend, NBC News fabricated the lie that President Trump gushed over Confederate General Robert E. Lee. This was a deliberate lie to smear Trump as racist, and it was only corrected by NBC after the lie had run its course.

Over the same weekend, CNN crafted its own lie to make Donald Trump Jr. look racist.

The media lie. And then the media lie some more. And now the media are lying about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and her debacle of a DNA test. These are lies of omission and commission, but they are still lies because the media are desperate to mislead and deceive. With all that in mind…

Here are the establishment media’s 9 biggest lies surrounding Warren’s Indian ancestry and DNA test….

Trapped In Information Bubbles? Consequences Of The Media’s Polarized Trump Coverage

Shrill media reports about Donald Trump’s alleged praise of Confederate General Robert E. Lee underscore the president’s deep-rooted racism, or America’s fake news epidemic – depending on where you get your news from.

The recent soundbite controversy began after NBC claimed that Trump had heaped praise upon Lee during a speech – sparking an avalanche of indignation from liberal outlets. The network corrected its story two days later, conceding that its video report “lacked the full context for Trump’s remarks….”

Pages Purged By Facebook Were On Blacklist Promoted By Washington Post

Media outlets removed by Facebook on Thursday, in a massive purge of 800 accounts and pages, had previously been targeted in a blacklist of oppositional sites promoted by the Washington Post in November 2016.

The organizations censored by Facebook include The Anti-Media, with 2.1 million followers, The Free Thought Project, with 3.1 million followers, and Counter Current News, with 500,000 followers. All three of these groups had been on the blacklist.

In November 2016, the Washington Post published a puff-piece on a shadowy and up to then largely unknown organization called PropOrNot, which had compiled a list of organizations it claimed were part of a “sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign.”

The Post said the report “identifies more than 200 websites as routine peddlers of Russian propaganda during the election season, with combined audiences of at least 15 million Americans.”

The publication of the blacklist drew widespread media condemnation, including from journalists Matt Taibbi and Glenn Greenwald, forcing the Post to publish a partial retraction. The newspaper declared that it “does not itself vouch for the validity of PropOrNot’s findings regarding any individual media outlet….”

Facebook To Ban Misinformation On Voting In Upcoming U.S. Elections

Facebook Inc will ban false information about voting requirements and fact-check fake reports of violence or long lines at polling stations ahead of next month’s U.S. midterm elections, company executives told Reuters, the latest effort to reduce voter manipulation on its service.

The world’s largest online social network, with 1.5 billion daily users, has stopped short of banning all false or misleading posts, something that Facebook has shied away from as it would likely increase its expenses and leave it open to charges of censorship.

The latest move addresses a sensitive area for the company, which has come under fire for its lax approach to fake news reports and disinformation campaigns, which many believe affected the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, won by Donald Trump….

Elizabeth Warren’s DNA Test — Native American Claims Misled The Public

She’s the Richard Blumenthal of intersectionality, minus the apology.

Do you want to know what media bias looks like?

Earlier today, Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren released DNA test results that confirmed that she misled employers, students, and the public about her Native American heritage for years. Bizarrely, all too many members of the media treated the results as vindicatingher. Down is up. Black is white. The imperatives of the resistance apparently dictate propping up a liar — as long as she might be able to beat President Trump in 2020….
