Backfire! Facebook Accidently Identifies Real Fake News! 

Don’t you love it when globalists accidentally turn on one another??

Back in December we wrote about the efforts of Facebook to combat the spread of “fake news” over social media with the introduction of a filter intended to flag ‘fake’ content so that users wouldn’t haven’t to go through the hassle of critically analyzing information on their own.  As we noted at the time, it was a genius plan, except for one small issue:  who determines what is considered “fake news” and how exactly do they draw those conclusions?  From our prior post (see “Facebook Launches Campaign To Combat “Fake News”“):

The first problem, however, immediately emerges because as NBC notes, “legitimate news outlets won’t be able to be flagged”, which then begs the question who or what is considered “legitimate news outlets”, does it include the likes of NYTs and the WaPos, which during the runup to the election declared on a daily basis, that Trump has no chance of winning, which have since posted defamatory stories about so-called “Russian propaganda news sites”, admitting subsequently that their source data was incorrect, and which many consider to be the source of “fake news”.

Also, just who makes the determination what is considered “legitimate news outlets.”

Now, it seems as though the first confirmed victim of Facebook’s ‘fake news’ crusade may be none other than the Chicago Tribune, a newspaper that undoubtedly considers itself a “legitimate news outlet.”

The discovery was highlighted in an article written by the Chicago Tribune’s own Deputy Editor for Digital News, Kurt Gessler, who noted that a curious thing happened back in December when Facebook first changed up its algorithms to target fake news, namely their traffic crashed.  Per the chart below, the typical Tribune post went from attracting the interest of 30-35k people down to 15-20k people in a matter of months.

Meanwhile, the number of Tribune articles shared over Facebook that reached less than 10,000 viewers (i.e. the “duds”) skyrocketed while the number of highly successful articles, those reaching 50,000+ people, simultaneously plunged.

So, either the Chicago Tribune suddenly started producing a lot of garbage that no one wanted to read, which just happened to coincide with the implementation of Facebook’s new “fake news” algo, or the media outlet was pumping out content that Facebook suddenly figured to fit the definition of ‘fake’.

Certainly, the issue couldn’t be attributed to a loss of followers….

…or less content creation.

Perhaps Facebook’s algos are better at identifying “fake news” than we thought.

NBC News Report: Hillary Clinton ‘Covered Up’ Elite Pedophile Ring At State Department – Collective Evolution

The Pizzagate topic has been one of great controversy, and for good reason – if true, the implications of the allegations are huge. It would turn how we view powerful people including Presidents, high ranking political officials and those we entrust to run our countries on its head. These people would be, under the definitions of our systems, criminals committing pedophilia. advertisement – learn moreSo one must be careful in digging into the correct details when exploring this subject. At the same time, you would assume that if all of this was not true, it would be no problem allowing full on investigations to take place. Except, that’s not what is happening…

Potential ‘smoking gun’ showing Obama administration spied on Trump team, source says » Alex Jones’ Infowars: There’s a war on for your mind!

The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump

Note: Trump has been vindicated about being under surveillance and so has Infowars. We reported this weeks ago and the story was censored by Facebook while we were called “fake news” for telling the truth.

Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News.

Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President Trump accused his predecessor of having wiretapped him in a series of now-infamous tweets posted on March 4.

The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump, according to sources.

The key to that conclusion is the unmasking of selected U.S. persons whose names appeared in the intelligence, the sources said, adding that the paper trail leaves no other plausible purpose for the unmasking other than to damage the incoming Trump administration.

Why it is SO important that the MSM is “Called Out” BIG TIME for what it is… (via a couple of “Media Manipulation” videos from Mark Dice)

These two videos are (once again, via Mark Dice) “hilariously” apocalyptic about the extent to which CNN, in particular, and the MSM, in general, have fallen. I do agree whole-heartedly with Mark that this should be called out again and again so more and more people get it… that (much of) MSM is garbage and/or […]

CNN Insider Claims McCabe Involved in Pedogate

 

By Victurus Libertas

We heard from our CNN insider again.  For a while, our source was under scrutiny, but it seems like things are better, as far as not being under as much suspicion for our insider.  We are thankful for that.

According to our CNN anon, the leaks that have been multiplying by the day, have all of the major reporters “terrified“.  The insider says the feeling is that soon their sickening crimes of pedophilia and rape will be catching up to them.

The source reports:  “The recent leaks that I’ve seen and heard about are legitimate, and they know it too.”

Our insider also stated something that was interesting.  It seems that Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe has been in the office lately, “barking orders” to everyone in the studio.  Last week he was calling constantly, “demanding to know if any of his private details are compromised.”
Our source says they all know his details – according to our insider, “he’s involved in the same pedophilia ring as the Clinton’s.”  The insider believes he’s only at the CNN studios personally, because he’s setting up the propaganda campaign that was mentioned in our previous correspondence, which can be found HERE.
Lastly, it’s not just CNN and FOX anymore. Our insider has gotten word from other employees with the same position and title, at CBS, ABC, NBC, and BBC that they’re in similar positions as our source.  It is apparent the government owns the MSM, and they are selling authoritarianism.

DR PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS: MAINSTREAM MEDIA IN TOTAL COLLAPSE

(GlobalResearch) Mainstream Media In Total Collapse Few any longer believe the “mainstream media,” that is, the presstitutes. This has put the presstitutes into a panic as they lose their value to the ruling elite if they cannot control the explanations in order to justify the self-serving agendas of the ruling elite. To fight back against…

…The Harvard Library website, perhaps in response to criticism, has now identified Melissa Zimdars as an assistant professor of communication at Merrimack College.

The library distances itself from the list by declaring it to be “an informal list.” The library still has a link to Zimdars’ list of fake news websites, but the link opens to something else. Stephen Lendmanprovided a copy of Zimdars’ list on Global Research (Read Harvards Fake Guide To Fake News Sites. Americas 21st Century “Index Librorum Prohibitorum“). Notice that WikiLeaks is on Zimdars’ list, which shows Zimdars’ absurdity. WikiLeaks posts no commentary or news, only vetted documents.
