Tech-giant attacks alternative news with financial threats

The Alex Jones Show – MARCH 23, 2017
In January, the Wall Street Journal reported “Google Steps Up Efforts to Stop ‘Fake News’” and this week WSJ reports “Google Steps Up Effort to Keep Ads Away From Controversial Content” — see a pattern?

We show you the new way Google is moving to financially throttle independent media that reports “controversy” — as determined by the Google gatekeepers.

DR WILLIAM MOUNT: Another Attempt On Pres Trumps Life

 

A few day ago we stated that Podesta put out a Hit on Trump, but the initial hit was supposed to be on the 27TH of March (+- 3 Days)  Guess the Hit Man jumped the gun by 4 days ….again I live in Tacoma so I only get bits and pieces.

I still feel the other hit is a go and this was just some Nut Case – but without the assistance of anyone in the White House – who really knows, right???

Apparently a man drove up with a Bomb in his car and the Secret Service stopped him from pulling into the White House with his car.

Someone got the bright idea of searching this man’s car – brilliant Secret Service — DUH. When he insisted they searched his cal and voila – a Bomb.

So what did the Secret Service do next after someone tried to Blow Up President Trump???

They went public as to exactly where President Trump is – where he stays every weekend.

“Uhhh – You can’t blow him up here – you have to blow him up at the Mar-A-Largo Resort in Palm Beach at his other house.”

Apparently President Trump owns the Mar-A-Lago Resorts in Palm Beach Florida and maintains  a Private Residence there over the weekends.

If you were a Moron, and you wanted President Trump Dead, you would describe exactly where the President was just after you found a Bomb headed to his personal residence at the White House right?

‘Oh – you can’t blow him up here – he is actually at his home in Palm Beach.”

Than is exactly what Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino did – he described in detail exactly where President Trump was minutes after they arrested the Man with a Bomb in his car headed to kill President Trump….

Germany Threaten Facebook With ‘Huge Fines’ If They Don’t Remove Alternative News – Your News Wire

Germany will impose fines of up to 50 million euros if Facebook don’t remove alternative news content from their platform. 

A new law being drafted will see social media firms face hefty fines if they take longer than seven days to remove content that German authorities deem to be “illegal” – including so-called fake news.

Germany’s justice minister, Heiko Mass, says that social media giants such as Facebook have not done enough to tackle content that the government deems ‘subversive’.

BBC News reports:

The proposal requires sites to run 24-hour helplines and to delete flagged content within seven days.

‘Utterly impossible’

Social media firms such as Twitter and Facebook were getting better at handling illegal content, said Mr Maas, but both had a long way to go.

Mr Maas quoted research which suggested Twitter deletes only 1% of the hate speech it is told about by users, and Facebook, 39%.

“This isn’t sufficient yet,” said Mr Maas.

Racism and hate speech are believed to have become more prevalent on German social media following the arrival of large number of refugees in Germany.

Any content that was “clearly criminal” would have to be removed within 24 hours under conditions outlined in the draft law. If, after an investigation, content is found to be criminal then that must be removed in seven days. The people who posted the illegal content must also be told about its deletion.

The proposed law would require each network to run fully staffed, round-the-clock reporting systems and to name an individual responsible for handling complaints. That person could face an individually levied fine of five million euros if companies break laws governing what can be published.

Mr Maas said the law could apply to fake news articles if they proved to be slanderous, defamatory or libellous.

Facebook did not comment directly on the proposal but said tests it commissioned showed it removed a higher percentage of illegal content than Mr Maas claimed. The social network said it expected to have 700 people employed in Berlin by the end of 2017 overseeing its efforts to review flagged content.

German digital trade association Bitkom criticised the proposed law. It told the Financial Times that the requirement to remove material within 24 hours on sites that handle more than one billion posts per day was “utterly impossible to implement in operational terms”.

Google Army To Flag Conspiracy Theory Sites In Fight Against Alt Media

Google has hired a 10,000 strong social justice army to flag sites from their search results that they deem “conspiracy”, “offensive”, or “fake news.”

In a move to completely eradicate all traces of independent journalism and alternative media websites from the web, Google has begun the process of compiling a list of all offending sites so that they can “de-rank” them from their search results.

The search engine giant is hoping to address complaints from left-wing media organisations that they allowed so-called ‘fake news’ to dominate the search results and thus influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. According to Google’s senior engineer, Paul Haahr, an army of quality raters will be tasked with ensuring that websites peddling conspiracy theories or generally offensive content, are put onto a blacklist so that Google can begin removing them from the web…

Deranged Harvard Professor Smears All Independent Media As ‘Fake News’ – Your News Wire

A far-left professor at Harvard University claims that all independent media websites that don’t subscribe to far-left ideology must be considered ‘fake news’ by default. 

A list of ‘fake news’ sites has been given to students at Harvard University, with the instruction that they study the list and make a note of the almost 1,000 independent, conservative, and center-right websites listed and ensure they are never circulated online.

According to professor Melissa Zimdars, sites such as Your News Wire, Breitbart, InfoWars, and the Drudge Report should all be banned from the internet due to their counter-narrative of mainstream liberal outlets such as Buzzfeed and CNN – a “crime” she says worthy of censorship.

Dailycaller.com reports:

The Daily Caller, The Drudge Report, Breitbart News, The Washington Examiner, The Washington Free Beacon, Independent Journal Review (IJR), The Blaze and The Weekly Standard are all on the list, deemed illegitimate for reasons such as “clickbait,” “bias,” or “unreliable.”

Liberal news sources like BuzzFeed, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Vox.com and Salon aren’t on the list.

The list, compiled by Merrimack College associate professor Melissa Zimdars, is recommended to students as part of a Harvard library guide on “Fake News, Misinformation, and Propaganda.”

The list is linked under a banner titled, “Identifying Fake News Sites.” A comment next to the link calls the document a “Huge list of fake news sites.”

As previously reported, liberal journalists have struggled to come up with a concise definition of “fake news,” even as they declare war on it.

Some liberal journalists have lumped in legitimate news organizations with objectively false websites, leading to concerns that a crackdown on “fake news” will be used by liberals to silence their conservative counterparts.

As previously reported by The Daily Caller, data shows that, despite a media freak-out, fake news websites actually struggle to reach any sort of real audience.

The Harvard University library did not immediately return TheDC’s request for comment.

Facebook Ministry Of Truth Begins Plot To Label Alternative Media Fake News | Stillness in the Storm

 

(Aaron KeselFacebook is releasing a new feature to combat fake news that will allow users to report content as fake – but it’s the people behind the ministry of truth that’s worrying.

by Aaron Kesel, March 6th, 2017

Facebook began testing these “features” in December according to Mashable. Facebook users can now mark a story in their newsfeed as fake.

This will result in a story having a disputed by “Fact-checkers” popup under its title along with a link to a corresponding article explaining why it might be false, as seen by a Gizmodo reporter on Twitter.

These posts will then appear lower in the news feed, throttled by Facebook’s algorithm, and users will receive a warning before sharing the story on their Facebook feeds, RT reported.

Although, the Seattle Tribune isn’t an alternative media source and is indeed a satire site as noted by their own disclaimer policy this could have dangerous repercussions for alternative media.
