Sometime circa mid-November, in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s defeat (i.e., the beginning of the end of democracy), the self-appointed Guardians of Reality, better known as the corporate media, launched a worldwide marketing campaign against the evil and perfidious scourge of “fake news.” This campaign is now at a fever pitch. Media outlets throughout the empire are pumping out daily dire warnings of the imminent, existential threat to our freedom posed by the “fake news” menace. This isn’t the just the dissemination of disinformation, propaganda, and so on, that’s been going on for thousands of years … Truth itself is under attack. The very foundations of Reality are shaking.
But I don’t want to single out The Washington Post, or its Executive Editor, Marty Baron, who is clearly a paragon of journalistic ethics. The rest of the corporate media have also been mercilessly flogging the “fake news” hysteria, and the “Putinist propaganda” hysteria, and the “normalizing of fascism” hysteria, and beating the “post-Truth” drum to death. The Guardian, The New York Times, et al., NPR, the TV news networks, the entire mainstream media chorus is barking out the message in perfect synch. So what is really going on here?
As I suggested in these pages previously, what we are experiencing is the pathologization (or the “abnormalization”) of political dissent, i.e., the systematic stigmatization of any and all forms of non-compliance with neoliberal consensus reality. Political distinctions like “left” and “right” are disappearing, and are being replaced by imponderable distinctions like “normal” and “abnormal,” “true” and “false,” and “real” and “fake.” Such distinctions do not lend themselves to argument. They are proffered to us as axiomatic truths, empirical facts which no normal person would ever dream of contradicting.
vengeance. Perhaps after the gathering up, but one way or the other, the globalists will "win" at some point - at least for a 7-year period]
"Russia’s increasingly sophisticated propaganda machinery — including thousands of botnets, teams of paid human “trolls,” and networks of websites and social-media accounts — echoed and amplified right-wing sites across the Internet as they portrayed Clinton as a criminal hiding potentially fatal health problems and preparing to hand control of the nation to a shadowy cabal of global financiers. The effort also sought to heighten the appearance of international tensions and promote fear of looming hostilities with nuclear-armed Russia.
By saying Russia propaganda is a national threat to the U.S. election security, they can now openly wage war on conservative websites.
This is a last ditch effort by Obama and the Democrats to use government to harm their political enemies that still value conservative principles, the Truth, and the Constitution.
What is telling is the list of websites and media outlets labeled as fake news. Almost entirely made up of alt-right and conservative leaning outlets. This push is coming from high- level Soros funded media operatives at the top of the Democratic party that can coordinate with the Obama administration. All of whom run a massive network of liberal propaganda outlets that where immune from being listed as "fake news." Suprised? Well you shouldn't be, it is Soros funded Media Matters that is leading the charge.
This collaboration by the Mainstream media, Big Internet and Big Government to disrupt and deride an incoming president is draconian to say the least. But fortunately the establishment has overplayed their hand, Trump has to see how the fascist corporate system has all lined up against him and his proponents in the alternative press.
This move to try and label alternative news media as fake will only serve to demonstrate the Truth behind the conspiratorial and tyrannical claims alt-media makes about our government. It will only draw more people than ever before to the message, that is how these things work. Trying to frame the alternative media as the liars is a last ditch effort to regain their credibility, but credibility, like integrity, or ones character is never easily won back. These people hate the light, they hate the Truth and they will continue to war against all those that seek to expose their evil deeds. Though they have been exposed that doesn't mean they won't stop fighting, which means all of us needs to bear down and realize this is only the beginning. The Zombie media and political establishment will just keep coming until we get the kill shot to the head. They are in it to the death, meaning we need to be prepared for crisis, and false flags at this time. Desperation by the establishment class almost always means they will seek to distract us with crisis, crisis and more crisis until the people can hardly bear it.
