Hello, my friend and welcome back! Towards the end of the election and afterward, we started hearing a lot about so called “Fake News” from all of the major news media and even Facebook. Why is that? In today’s post, I will explain exactly what is going on and when I do, I’m sure you will see it as clearly as I do. So grab a cup of coffee and have a seat while we visit.
Now, I will be the first to admit that during the election and long before, there have been quite a few websites that try to appear legit, yet only publish stories to be used as click bait. We all know them and take them for what they are because they are usually easy to spot.
These sites have been around for years and yet no one has ever been the least concerned about them, until now. Suddenly, it seems to be all the so-called “Legitimate” news sites can talk about. Every major news media is talking about it and members of the Clinton election team have even gone so far as to blame “Fake News” for costing them the election. This simply isn’t true, but it gave the major media a Segway to begin talking about it.
Even the Social Media sites have started bashing and talking about it. Don’t you find it funny that out of the blue, they seem to feel it’s their responsibility to put an end to this so-called “Terrible menace to society”? Why would they suddenly decide to spend time and money to combat something that has been around for so long?
Facebook is even testing a new warning sign that they want to post on any status or sight who “THEY” feel is not legitimate? This should be raising all kinds of red flags with everyone and especially Preppers and Patriots. It’s called “censoring the news “and you can bet that they will tag any post whose messages don’t align with theirs as “Fake”!
But why is this suddenly happening? Why is it big news all of a sudden? Ask yourself this: “Do you trust the major Media after this election? I sure as hell know I don’t. During the election, all of the major news media made it blatantly obvious that they were only going to broadcast news that supported their candidate. They even went so far as to alter video footage and misquote politicians they were against. News about crimes committed by Hillary Clinton was buried, so as to protect her and increase her chances of winning.
Everyone has seen their lies and knows that they can no longer trust them. They have betrayed the trust of the American people and they know it. So how do they get their rating back up with everyone listening to alternate news sources?
They demonize it and do everything they can to discourage people to listening to what they now call “Fake News”. They have started a massive campaign to discredit any news source they can’t control. They are even drawing in the social media giants into their campaign. Millions of dollars are being spent just to accomplish this, by enlisting corporations like Facebook and Reddit to help decry the wickedness of Fake news.
I think that if you stop and think about it, you will plainly see that all of the hype about “Fake News” is nothing more than a smear campaign against alternate news media, in an effort to drive people back to the major news Corporations. They want to force people to think that they have no alternative but to listen to ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and others for their news. The news business is a billion dollar industry and they are not going to give up without a fight.
Millions of people will fall for their deceit, don’t be one of them. Pay attention and not be fooled by the stigmatizing tag of “Fake News” they label an alternate news source as. Judge for yourself and understand what they are doing and you will be well ahead of the curve. Warn your friends and family about what is going on because the best way to put an end to it is to expose the truth to the light.
You can, without a doubt, expect to see new law aimed at countering “Fake News” as Democrats and even some Republicans seek to regain their control using major news networks. This must not be allowed to happen and if we don’t stop them, we are doomed as a nation.
Well, that is it for today and I hope you have enjoyed today’s post and found it informative. Until next time my friend, stay safe, stay strong, and stay prepared. God Bless America!
