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.

Look! Facebook Algorithms Just Smacked Their Leftist Creator in the Face! You’ll Smile Ear to Ear! 

By Lisa Haven

Earlier this year Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg decided to implement a new nazi style process that allows users to tattle-tale on other users and alternative media outlets. His new “policy” grants people the authority to report news that they deem is “fake.” His intent was to wipe out the nationalistic alternative media, however, he got slapped in the face when his own users used his “nazi policy” against him! Check out this report….

Americans Now Outlawed From Knowing The Laws They Live Under

“Paranoia used to be considered a form of mental illness: today it is regarded as just another ideology.”

 Justin Raimondo (1951-present) American author and the editorial director of Antiwar.com

Special Report from Sister Ciara

For over 50 years, I’ve extensively researched thousands of human societies throughout the world, with all them having one single connection throughout all time—people agreeing to live with each other based upon a set of mutually accepted norms, that are called “laws”.

Law is a system of rules that are created and enforced through social or governmental institutions to regulate behavior, and from our most ancient times when small groups of nomadic peoples roamed the vastness of our Earth, to today’s gargantuan nation states having populations in the hundreds-of-millions and billions, all were made possible by people agreeing with each other in how they would live with each other.

From the most open and free societies one can imagine, to the cruelest and most despotic regimes the human mind could conceive, all have been governed by laws—some being secular in nature (denoting attitudes, activities, or other things that have no religious or spiritual basis), with others being based upon religious beliefs.

And in all of recorded history, the laws people choose to live by, or were forced to adhere to, were known by everyone who lived under them—except for today!

The reason this is so is because the United States, barely a month ago, became the first society in all of recorded human history to outlaw its citizens from knowing the laws they live under!

You haven’t heard about this because while it’s simple to understand, its complexity has been lost on both the citizens of America and, most importantly, its mainstream propaganda media—all of whom, scientists have recently reported, now have a shorter attention span than a goldfish

A Civil War Is Here: Google Crossed the Line and Maliciously Attacks Conservatives

By Lisa Haven

I’ve had it with outlets that continually lie, manipulate and abuse the masses for their own gain. Specifically Facebook, Google, YouTube and countless others working towards the elite agenda with little recourse about the impact they are having on humanity so long as their pockets are filled with money.

In their latest ploy, Google has delisted and censored conservative news and Christian sites on YouTube. Additionally, with the “YouTube Ad boycott,” multiple YouTubers are getting little to no pay until the “issues” can be fixed… but just what are the “issues” they plan on fixing? And just who do they plan on “delisting” as a result? I think Google has given us our answer.

It’s time for us Americans to take a stand against such groups and make our voices heard. If we continue to allow these manipulative giants to rule over us then we can kiss our freedoms goodbye. I for one won’t stand by and let it happen. I will share what they are doing with everyone and anyone willing to listen. I will no longer allow them to rule over me in such a manner that they know every jot and tittle about my life and I believe you feel the same way.

Here is the breaking report that needs to go viral…

USA Today instantly loses nearly 5 million likes after Facebook shuts down massive network of fake users – NaturalNews.com

(Natural News) A recent sting operation by Facebook has uncovered a massive scheme involving fake accounts that were planting “likes” on certain pages in order for them to fraudulently gain more followers. Caught in the fray was none other than USA Today, which apparently had nearly five million fake page followers that almost instantly disappeared after Facebook shut the whole thing down and issue an announcement.

As part of an ongoing plan to eliminate spam from its system, Facebook uncovered the fake user ring after observing that many user accounts were being suspiciously created for the sole purpose of liking certain pages, only to go dark not long after. In a statement, Facebook explained how it identified what was going on, and the action it took in response.

“The apparent intent of the campaign was to deceptively gain new friend connections by liking and interacting primarily with popular publisher Pages on our platform, after which point they would send spam,” Facebook said in a statement. “We observed that the bulk of these accounts became dormant after liking a number of Pages, suggesting they had not been mobilized yet to actually make connections and send spam to those people.”

As Facebook started deleting these fake accounts en masse, it noticed that many popular news sites such as Fox News and The New York Times were losing, on average, less than three percent of their followers, suggesting that the majority of these pages’ likes were legitimate. But for USA Today, that number was higher –a lot higher…

Facebook Suspends 30,000 Pro Marine Le Pen Accounts – Your News Wire

Facebook has suspended 30,000 French accounts that were supportive of Presidential candidate Marine Le Pen on Friday. 

Facebook Inc announced its intentions to suspend the accounts on Thursday, claiming the move was part of an effort to stop the spread of fake news ahead of the French elections.

However, critics argue that the suspension, just ten days before the hotly contested election, is designed to censor Marine Le Pen as her popularity continues to soar.

Facebook has come under extreme pressure from Germany and France recently as European leaders have suggested new laws and fines unless the social media giant quickly removes content they deem “alternative.”

Facebook has already rolled out a program in France to use third-party fact-checkers to combat so-called fake news in users’ feeds…

The offending fake accounts hailed from Bangladesh, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and a host of other countries, Facebook’s Technical Program Manager, Shabnam Shaik, said in a blog post.

Those responsible used “sophisticated means that try to mask the fact that the accounts are part of the same coordinated operation,” in a bid to “deceptively gain new friend connections by liking and interacting primarily with popular publisher Pages” after which they would send spam.

Spammers used tricks to avoid being detected including “redirecting their traffic through ‘proxies’ that disguised their location.”
