Back from retirement to address the new wave of rather aggressive mind-attacks from the mainstream media. Just heard a local talking head announce that Facebook employees have decided they need to distinguish “fake” news from “real” news, which seems to be old news because Facebook has been in the censorship business for a long time. But the local station used it to point out the “fact” that Donald Trump did not win the popular vote; however, we do not yet know whether or not that’s true. This is from the National Archives, taken today:
No official results are available. Who has results? Politico, USA Today, Fox News, Wikipedia, ABC, New York Times, get the picture? On the other hand, see this from 70 News:
Update [Nov 11]: Anyone asking where I got the figures, it was from twitter posts. Knowing the Democrat media have been dragging their liberal feet giving Michigan to Trump – finally they did, with Arizona finally declared two days ago – Trump now has the 309. Except for the twitter posts, the popular vote number still need to be updated in Wikipedia or MSM media – which may take another few days because the liberals are still reeling and recovering from Trump-shock victory. If I’m wrong, I won’t hesitate to change the numbers. It’s the job of the establishment media to tell the people the final numbers when it’s out there already.
Do we believe “real” news outlets, the so-called mainstream media, whose reporters submit their stories to Hillary’s staff before printing them? Or do we consider the work of those who spend hours sifting through information on websites and in documents as they search for the truth?
As for the increased aggression in media propaganda, could that be part of the purple revolution?
11/17/2016 UPDATE on “fake” news, from All News PipeLine:
So, while Facebook and Google have decided to make themselves the arbitrators of “truth,” meaning anything that does not fit their political ideology, Twitter has begun a mass ban on conservatives, labeling them “alt-right”…
Facebook was recently subjected to scandal when former employees told Gizmodo that they routine suppressed conservative news from their trending news feeds, while they were told to artificially “inject” other stories into that news feed.
Twitter has also been subject to scrutiny for randomly banning high profile conservatives from their platform as well as “shadowbanning” politically inconvenient users…
Google has previously been accused of censoring search results of Hillary Clinton’s health, and other news that was negative to Clinton. It has also been reported that Google was “directly engaged” in the Hillary Clinton campaign.
