Bonfire of the ‘journalists’: social justice clickbait faces its Waterloo

There was a time when I ‘liked’ the Facebook pages of Vox, VICE, the Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, Mic, Upworthy, Mashable, Refinery29, Slate, Salon, NowThis, Thrillist, Gawker. Reading this content, watching it, experiencing it in real time as it was funneled into my newsfeed, I came to feel like Clover. Beyond the necessities of a publication’s house style, beyond the fact that as national news organizations they would have to cover the same stories, I began to lose the ability to tell the content of these companies apart. Whether it was VICE or Mashable or some other VC-backed media startup, the writing style, the ideological commitments, the nerdy, wearisome attention to minor fluctuations in popular culture: they were all the same.

CNN Anchor Silenced When Furloughed Workers Come Onto Show To Defend Trump

When establishment media believes the narrative they push on the public, they can get themselves into trouble. As an example of this, it appears CNN may have thought they had a slam dunk of a story to bash President Donald Trump over — with furloughed workers as guests.

They were wrong. And just how wrong they were became clear in an interview that went in a very different direction from what CNN seems to have expected.

Scott Adams: Democrats Once Again Winning the Game No One Was Playing

The only valid comparison to President Trump, is President Hillary
Would her border solution have been as good or better?
What would her solution have looked like?
80/20 Rule applies to our future border security solution
Improve the worst 20% and get 80% improvement
Dems are fighting the President, not a secure border
Everybody wants better border security
Lots of historical video shows Dems agree with the need
Dems just don’t want the credit to go to the President
President Trump’s border security strategy
He’s put ALL his political capital on the line for this
Result will be a substantial improvement
Even critics will agree solution is even better than his promise
Never underestimate Dems ability to shoot themselves in the foot
How do we improve healthcare, without it costing everyone a fortune?
Lowering healthcare cost is the key

Abolish Ghost-banning on Youtube comments

Many Youtubers are having their comments ghost banned (shadow banned) because they are getting lost in the spam filter, or are deliberately being tagged as spam by trolls who leave hateful comments, and then remove legitimate responses.

There should be no limit to how often youtubers can comment, and there needs to be a simple system to make sure that users are not being unfairly banned. A simple process for users to be able to appeal and re-instate their ghost ban needs to be introduced. There needs to be a clear warning to the user that they have been ghost banned, why specifically they have been banned, as well as clear procedures for how they can appeal, or what they need to do in order to avoid being banned in future. It is highly deceptive to ban a user without informing them, and providing no useful procedure for the user to appeal.

BILL MAHER ATTACKS 16-YEAR-OLD COVINGTON CATHOLIC STUDENT — ‘WHAT A LITTLE PR*CK’

HBO host Bill Maher called 16-year-old Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann a “little prick” during his Friday night “Real Time With Bill Maher” opening monologue.

“Everyone is talking about the smirk heard round the world,” Maher said before recounting last Saturday’s events, including the fact that Native American activist Nathan Phillips “got in the middle of” the Covington kids and a group of Black Hebrew Israelites, whom Maher also criticized.

Yet, even after a fuller picture revealed an entirely different story behind the initial criticism of Sandmann and the other kids, Maher still attacked Sandmann as a “smirking kid” and a “little prick.”

Trump gleefully tweets about layoffs at BuzzFeed and Huffington Post because of 'fake news and bad journalism'

President Donald Trump has gleefully tweeted about the devastating layoffs sweeping online journalism outlets this week, touting the cuts as a triumph against 'Fake News' media.

But he's facing furious backlash for gloating about the loss of about 1,000 American jobs and proclaiming 'Fake News has caused a big downturn'.

This week BuzzFeed and the Huffington Post announced cuts resulting in the loss of hundreds of jobs for reporters, editors, and media workers.

'"Ax falls quickly at BuzzFeed and Huffpost!" Headline, New York Post. Fake News and bad journalism have caused a big downturn. Sadly, many others will follow. The people want the Truth!' Trump tweeted Saturday afternoon.

For a very long time, we have been hearing that top Democrats and members of the Deep State were going to be arrested and tried for their crimes. -- But that has not happened. -- Instead, it is conservatives that are being arrested, and the Deep State seems determined to take down as many as they possibly can in 2019.

With staged arrest of Roger Stone, justice is DEAD in America

The answer should be obvious by now. Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, and now Roger Stone were all associates of the president, either personally or as part of his 2016 campaign; Mueller is acting on behalf of the Deep State to undermine and, hopefully, remove, a duly-elected president. -- There is no more ‘justice’ in America. It’s dead and gone.

Tom Fitton Threatens FOIA Lawsuit to Uncover How CNN Was Tipped Off on Roger Stone Raid

President Trump’s longtime confidant and advisor Roger Stone was arrested by heavily armed KGB FBI agents Friday morning in a pre-dawn raid.

King Mueller indicted Roger Stone and charged him on 7 counts including false statements, obstruction of justice and witness tampering.

These are all process crimes. There is no Russian collusion. Mueller has nothing so he is trying to turn the screws on Roger Stone.

CNN was tipped off and captured the raid live.

While Google paid lip-service to workplace activists, their lawyers fought to strip their rights

Employees at web giant Google are in an uproar after it was reported the company had been pushing to overturn a labor law ruling protecting activists who organize over workplace email and forums.

Google has reportedly lobbied with the National Labor Relations Board (NRLB) to change a 2014 regulation after activists within the company organized a series of high-profile protests last year, including a 20,000 person walk-out in November over Google’s alleged mishandling of sexual assault accusations against several executives.

“Google would rather pay lawyers to change national labor law than do what's right. Google is aiming to silence us at a time when our voices are more essential than ever,” claim employee organizers from the group ‘Google Walkout for real change.’

Zuckerberg: Facebook Tries to Take Down All ‘Divisive Content’

When Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg talks about content now, he talks a lot about restricting speech.

Zuckerberg wrote an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal to explain the platform’s nebulous position on free speech. While he admitted that he “believed everyone should have a voice and be able to connect,” he also disagreed with himself.

He tried to explain that Facebook did not leave “divisive content” up on purpose. Zuckerberg said, “The only reason bad content remains is because the people and artificial intelligence systems we use to review it are not perfect — not because we have an incentive to ignore it.”

Protests in France and Venezuela - Spot the Difference

The ‘Yellow Vest’ anti-government protests in France have received limited coverage in Western media and what coverage there has been has been quite hostile to the protestors.

In Venezuela though it’s a very different story. Here the street demonstrations are a major news event, despite the country being thousands of miles away. Furthermore, the coverage is very sympathetic to the protestors and extremely hostile to the government.

'Largest scam in history': HALF of Facebook accounts fake, says Zuckerberg's Harvard classmate

As many as half of Facebook's two billion accounts are fake or duplicates, according to a new report from a former classmate of CEO Mark Zuckerberg. He has highlighted how the fakes defraud users, advertisers and investors alike.

Rocked by a major privacy scandal last year, Facebook has been trying to create an image of a company with high community standards, striving to curb the illicit behavior of users. But the company may be deliberately understating the amount of fake accounts, a new report says.

The firm's own quarterly investment reports reveal that the its much-vaunted account base, which is supposedly has over 2 billion monthly active users, is packed with fake accounts communicating with just enough randomness to trick the social network's algorithms, according to Zuckerberg's former classmate at Harvard, Aaron Greenspan.

Tucker on the Covington Catholic High School Students and the Cultural War Dividing America

The hypocritical virtue-signaling outrage from CNN and the other regime media presstitutes and pundits, the Twittering Hollywood hate brigades, and the legion of sanctimonious Social Justice Warriors (including those of #NeverTrump Conservative, Inc.) rushed to judgment to condemn this group of Kentucky teenagers who were almost compiled as if from central casting as portraying all the demonic and deplorable enemies of progressivism and all that is stereotypical anti-Trump – young, white, anti-abortion Catholics boys attending a Right to Life March, wearing red MAGA caps, who dared allegedly obstruct and demean a sacred native American elder.

The phony narrative surrounding the Native American activist Nathan Phillips is fast unraveling. Even the WaPo admitted he is not a Vietnam War veteran as put forth earlier by the media but a paid agitprop activist and actor who has been in similar confrontation episodes with students in the past.

UN BEGINS INQUIRY INTO KHASHOGGI MURDER

The United Nations Human Rights Office announced yesterday it is beginning an investigation into the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

In a statement, the UN said that an independent panel would seek to establish “the nature and extent of states’ and individuals’ responsibilities for the killing”.

The UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Agnes Callamard, said she would travel to Turkey next week to head an “independent international inquiry” into Khashoggi’s murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

British barrister Helena Kennedy and Duarte Nuno Vieira, a pathology expert and professor at the department of legal and forensic medicine at Coimbra University, Portugal, are among the team. Along with Callamard, they are to visit Turkey between 28 January and 3 February and plan to report to the UN Human Rights Council in June.

Callamard said that the findings will be raised at the UN rights office on 19 June.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More sound and fury from the UN, signifying nothing; the responsibilities for the death of Khasshogi will be squarely placed on the "usual suspects" (underlings, with absolutely no power of decision making whatsoever), and the real blame against who most probably ordered the hit (most likely, the Butcher of Yemen, Crown Prince Bin Salmin and his cohorts in the White House), will be left , uncharged, in order to let Saudi Arabia and US continue their genocidal war in Yemen.

Left-wing media’s smear of high school students who were harassed by Native American activist proves yet again that mainstream media is FAKE NEWS

Now that there’s no denying that the Covington Catholic High School boys falsely accused of harassing and taunting a Native American elder during the “March for Life” event in Washington, D.C., were actually the victims of such from not only the elder in question but also a group of racist, anti-white black supremacists, many people are now asking themselves: Is there anything to be believed anymore from the mainstream media?

Microsoft now conspiring with pro-Monsanto front group “NewsGuard” to censor all anti-GMO news on mobile devices

Microsoft has just unveiled its plans to partner up with NewsGuard, a “startup” company bent on censoring the world wide web, disguised as an app that helps users weed out “fake news.” Now, instead of being an app that users can choose to download, Microsoft will be incorporating the technology as an integrated feature of their mobile web browser, Edge. If you use your cellphone to surf the web, Edge might not be the best choice — unless you enjoy being spoon-fed leftist propaganda by a neocon corporation that is tied to Monsanto.

As if the blatant censorship of conservatives across social media wasn’t bad enough, Microsoft and NewsGuard are now conspiring to suppress all kinds of information, ranging from conservative news organizations to scientific literature exposing the dangers of GMOs.

NewsGuard quotes me as saying (in the course of its danger warning to readers thinking of flirting with Breitbart News):

“When amateurs on a blog know more about science than the guys on multi-million dollar grants at U.S. academic institutions informing global energy and environment policy, you know that the time has come to drain the swamp,” Delingpole wrote.

TERENCE MCKENNA EXPLAINS WHY TELEVISION IS THE MOST DANGEROUS ADDICTIVE DRUG IN SOCIETY

People have become totally obsessed with their own beliefs, opinions and biases that their behavior is going completely unexamined. Their reactions to the latest news item are automatic and predictable. The late iconoclast Terence McKenna pointed out that obsessive and unexamined behavior in pursuit of familiar stimulus (such as what we see with each moment of media outrage) is what drug addiction is about.

McKenna went a step further to say that television was the greatest drug ever introduced into society. What else could persuade people spend an average of 5-7 hours a day sitting in front of the TV? All the while consuming, in hypnotic states of mind, the scientifically crafted messages of corporate and government propagandists?

Here, McKenna expounds on the idea that television is a drug that is having negative consequences on individuals and on society at large:

Banned by Facebook for Telling the Truth

Once, the newspapers competed, leaders had differing views, the pundits argued, the parties called for various actions. They vied for our pennies and votes and tried to convince us. Not any more. Now they know better what’s good for us. They do not care about circulation, they do not have to sell newspapers, for the advertisements are paid for by the rich, anyway. Once, minorities had been excluded from discussion; now, it is majority that is banned.

There is not a single newspaper in the US that supports the views of the US President. Nobody defended him when he was accused, brazenly, in-your-face, of being a Russian agent. Nobody supported him when he called to bring the troops home from Syria. Nobody came to his aid when he mulled parting with NATO. There are tens of millions of men and women who voted for him, but he has only his Twitter account at his disposal.

While many immediately assigned blame to the students, it later became clear when more video surfaced that they did not initiate the confrontation.

Facebook Slides After Report Claims 50% Of Its Users Are Fake

As bad as things have been for Facebook since the Cambridge Analytica scandal broke one year ago, one team of researchers, led by a former peer of Mark Zuckerberg at Harvard who created one of the original Facebook prototypes, thinks the reality of the company's circumstances is even more dire than investors realize.

In a report published Thursday by PlainSite, an independent research shop led by Aaron Greenspan, analysts calculated that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been regularly lying to investors and the public about the company's user metrics, and that the company could be overestimating the number of users by as much as 50%.

The team detailed their findings in a 70-page report published on their website.

BRITTANY FERRIES ACCUSE BBC OF ‘NONSENSE’ SCAREMONGERING

Brittany Ferries have moved to slap down Remainer scaremongering about international travel beyond March, and reassure passenmgers. The iconic ferry company accused the BBC of peddling “nonsense” and reassured potential passengers that they can book beyond March.

“The company would like to make clear that passengers can book crossings to France and Spain, and sail-and-stay holidays as normal. There is absolutely no truth in speculation that passengers are being advised not to book because all space has been allocated to freight.

The reality is that Brittany Ferries has added 19 crossings on three of its nine routes leaving the UK. The additional sailings create more space for freight, as requested by the DfT. As a consequence, there is now more choice for passengers rather than less.”

More Verified Hate

A day off from school in January should be a happy occasion. Students pray for snow days. But Covington Catholic in Kentucky was closed on Tuesday, January 22, for a different reason: threats of violence.

Young white men from Covington Catholic High School were in Washington, D.C., a few days earlier for the March for Life—an anti-abortion rally that attracted hundreds of thousands of people, mostly whites. The mainstream media generally reports very lightly on the event.

However, when an American Indian activist named Nathan Phillips confronted the students from Covington, many reporters saw their big chance. They were incensed that several students were wearing red MAGA hats.

Thus, a petty encounter took on major cultural importance; journalist Jessica Valenti believed a photograph of the incident would be “historic.” For the corporate media, this was a chance to smear pro-lifers, Christians, and Trump supporters as racists.

BEX ALERT - Hitler-owned book hints at Nazi plans for North America

A book once owned by Adolf Hitler provides a chilling look at what may have been his interest in extending the "Final Solution" to North America.

The book was written by a Nazi researcher who spent time in the US before the outbreak of World War Two.

It has been acquired by the Library and Archives of Canada, and was once owned by a Holocaust survivor.

The Final Solution was a code name for the Nazi's goal of committing genocide against the Jewish people.

US Has Its Gunsights On Venezuela – OpEd

On January 10—Nicolas Maduro was sworn in for his second term as president of Venezuela. “I tell the people,” Maduro said, “this presidential sash is yours. The power of this sash is yours. It does not belong to the oligarchy or to imperialism. It belongs to the sovereign people of Venezuela.”

These two terms—oligarchy and imperialism—define the problems faced by Maduro’s new government.

Pressure on Venezuela has been intense. U.S. President Donald Trump has repeatedly called for the overthrow of the Bolivarian government, led by Maduro. Sanctions have been ratcheted up. Economic warfare has become normal. Threats of a military invasion are in the air.

These Bases include 2 naval bases: Cartagena and Tolemaida, 3 air force bases: Malambo, Palanquero, and Apiay and 2 army bases: Larandia and Tolemaida. Although I was not able to identify where these bases are on a map, my best bet is that at least one of these cities is very close to Venezuela.

Why Your Enemy Is The Media—MEDIA—ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE.

CONSERVATIVES ALREADY KNOW liberal media is an enemy of the people. We recognize leftist, mass communication interconnections as a runaway propaganda monster. It has no boundaries, no limits, no love, and no honor.

HOWARD BEAL, in the movie NETWORK, 1976:

You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here, you’re beginning to believe that the tube is reality and your own lives are unreal. You do. Why, whatever the tube tells you: you dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube, you even think like the tube. This is mass madness, you maniacs.

In God’s name, you people are the real thing,

WE are the illusion.

No need to install: Microsoft has controversial fake news filter NewsGuard built into mobile browser

Corporate and neocon-backed startup NewsGuard is one step closer to its vision of bringing its “unreliable” news rater to every screen after Microsoft makes it an integral part of its Edge mobile browser.

Rather than having to download an app as before, Edge users on Android and Apple devices can now just click one button to enable its “green-red rating signal if a website is trying to get it right or instead has a hidden agenda or knowingly publishes falsehoods or propaganda.”

Among the green-rated websites: Voice of America, CNN, Buzzfeed, the Guardian, New York Times and the Washington Post, as well as left-leaning upstarts such as Vice News and Refinery 29. Ones that are given the red warning label of “failing to maintain basic standards of accuracy and accountability”: RT and Sputnik (obviously enough) and the right-wing Daily Mail, Breitbart and the Drudge Report, in addition to hundreds of other non-mainstream news websites such as Wikileaks.

MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS LITERALLY MAKING PEOPLE SICK

I do not for one second doubt that Americans are feeling more stressed and suffering more health-degrading symptoms as a result than they were prior to Trump’s election. But Pacific Standard and its “growing body of research” ignore the most obvious and significant culprit behind this phenomenon which is tearing people’s health to shreds: the mass media which has been deliberately fanning the flames of Trump panic.

The always excellent Moon of Alabama blog has just published a sarcasm-laden piece documenting the many, many aggressive maneuvers that this administration has made against the interests of Russia, from pushing for more NATO funding to undermining Russia’s natural gas interests to bombing Syria to sanctioning Russian oligarchs to dangerous military posturing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is infinitely more grating, from where I sit, is not the "Trump Panic Syndrome", but the "Trump Reality Syndrome", which includes things he had promised on the campaign trail which he has not done... and things President Trump has done, in these first two years of his Presidency.

1. The massive disparity between the monied and the desperate keeps growing exponentially. There are little victories, of smaller companies moving back to the US (probably with some rich state/town perks and benefits for having done so.) But the consistent off-shoring, out-sourcing of American jobs continues apace. There is an epidemic of homelessness in this country which is unprecedented.

Remember the stunning scenario which inspired Victor Hugo to create his "Les Miserables"?!? In 1845, on the streets of Paris, he observed the same incident that triggers the novel's action. On a sunny but cold day, he saw an impoverished man being arrested for stealing a loaf of bread. As the man stood on the street, an ornate carriage pulled up beside him. Inside there was a dazzlingly beautiful woman dressed in velvet, playing with a child hidden under ribbons, embroidery and furs. The impoverished man stared at the woman in the carriage, but she was totally unaware of him. Hugo wrote that he saw this man as, "The spectre of misery, the ghostly forewarning in full light of day, in the sunshine, of the revolution still plunged in the shadows of darkness, but emerging from them. The moment he became aware of her existence, while she remained unaware of his, a catastrophe was inevitable."

Folks, we're there, right now; history may not necessarily repeat, but occasionally it rhymes. And let me say, for the record; as a Christian pacifist activist, I abhor violence,and would never advocate its use.

And those great pronouncements about the employment in this country, are running so low; this is a marvelous subterfuge, and a neat "hat trick", courtesy of the Department of Labor Statistics.

You see, people who are unemployed for more than 4 weeks, are deliberately purged from the figures as not interested in working, almost as though they had never existed at all.

If the US unemployment rate included everyone who says they want a job, it would be nearly double

2. President Trump withdrew the US from the P5+1 deal, even though the IAEA continues to state that the Iranians are currently keeping their end of the deal. I cannot begin to articulate just how completely insane, and counter productive this was. There are many things about which I rightly criticized the Obama Administration, but this was not of them. And the consequences?!?

Remember: demonization, plus Sanctions, create the American Preludes to War.

We are on the doorstep of such a war against Iran, because Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, keeps advocating it, calling Iran "the existential enemy" of Israel. We are plunged into our "2 minutes of hate against Iran", ad nauseum, by the corporate presstitutes. So, let's see, what could possibly go wrong here?!?

Emboldened by one of his BFFs in the Middle East, President Trump, Israel has been making bombing runs into Syria to destroy alleged Iranian placements of personnel, and equipment in that country. Netanyahu: we will not stop fighting Iran as long as I lead Needless to say, Iran is not amused with these actions, and Russia, who has been assisting the Syrian government in getting rid of US backed, equipped, and funded jihadis in Syria, has told Israel in no uncertain terms, to back off. As of yesterday, Russia blasted Netanyahu with the following demand: Israel's airstrikes against Syria must stop. We also see the following headline: World War III: Iran, Syria, Russia and Israel

I do hope our President understands the following: Tel Aviv thoroughly expects the costs of such a war to be borne in American blood and money; not Israeli. Should such a war begin, expect Russia (and perhaps China) to come into the fray on Iran's side.

3. And speaking of war, let's remember the Saudi war against Yemen, where the American government and military are complicit in Saudi war crimes. Why Are U.S. Bombs Killing Civilians in Yemen?

The reason is simple: The Saudis love to buy American bombs to continue to create a genocide in Yemen.Saudi Arabia is the top buyer of US weapons" President Trump has, by default, and his sign-off on all these deals, has given him yet another title: The American Merchant of Death in Chief.

Please think about that for a minute. Did you ever think, when you were a kid, about how you would feel, understanding you would be a citizen of a US government which would be complicit in war crimes?!?

3. The illegal immigration solutions President Trump promised the American people, have gone down in flames.

4. Us sanctions around the globe in places like Russia, China, and Venezuela, are pushing other countries further away from the US, both in relationships, and finding creative ways to ditch the dollar, and come to other understandings about how finance can be conducted.

5. I notice the corporate presstitutes are continually spewing out their vile codswallop against countries which have done nothing to the US, to further the governments'agendas which, at this time, seem to be all-out war-centric. The two countries which come to mind, are Iran, and Russia.

The US government accuses Russia of having "annexed Crimea", which never, in reality, did happen; After the 2014 Putsch in Ukraine, Crimea did two things; in a fair and peaceful referendum, the Crimean government asked the people of Crimea, if they wanted to stay in Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation for membership. The Crimean people voted overwhelmingly to petition the Russian Federation for a membership, and the Russian Federation accepted this. And please remember: in an interview with CNN, President Obama confessed to have brokered a deal for "regime change" in Ukraine. In a CNN interview, President Obama Confesses that the US brokered a deal for" Regime change" in Ukraine, January, 2015

6. The US has left a ton of military footprints around the world. the list is breathlessly long, and may contain country names you haven't thought about since High School Geography, or may have been recently created

These are the true issues of "The Trump Reality Syndrome".

Please understand that I am just as angry about these issues as many of you are, but realize that I need to channel my anger into logic, research, and coming up with alternate ways in which this country could get what it wants, geopolitically, without resorting to war.

Because right now, war - and the monied who become enriched through war and military conflicts around the world - are winning, and I am singularly depressed about this.

Lawyer Threatens to Sue New York Times On Behalf of Covington Catholic Kids

Attorney Robert Barnes, who is representing students involved in the Covington Catholic media smear, has offered up his services for free to sue the New York Times for “obvious libel.”

Barnes’s fiery response to Times reporter Maggie Haberman should serve as a serious concern to the many journalists and media entities who rushed to judgment on the Covington kids.

The lawyer initially responded to Haberman on social media after she suggested that several of the boys in the video purportedly acting in a ‘racist’ manner should be expelled.

The Times of Israel’s Flawed Attack on the NY Times’ MLK and Palestinian Rights

Michelle Alexander, a now-famous scholar for her work on race relations and her book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, wrote a New York Times op-ed titled “Time to Break the Silence on Palestine,” calling for public discourse on how Israel oppresses Palestinians. A significant part of her column analyzed how Martin Luther King would not have stayed silent on the current state of affairs.

US Releases American Journalist After 10 Days Detention Without Charges

Ten days ago, US citizen Marzieh Hashemi was arrested at the St. Louis Lambert Airport, and transferred into FBI custody. On Wednesday, she was finally released, having never been charged with a crime.

Hashemi is a journalist and an anchor for Iran’s PressTV, and her arrest was the subject of mounting international scrutiny, though the US government had refused virtually all comment. Officially she was kept in prison as a “material witness.”

Hashemi and her family issued a statement following her release, saying she retains “serious grievances” about her treatment in the US prison system, during which her hijab was forcibly removed, and she was denied food in keeping with her religious requirements. She has promised to continue protests to prevent the US from imprisoning people without charges like this ever again.

New Video Surfaces of Liar Nathan Phillips ONCE AGAIN Claiming to Be a ‘Vietnam Vet’ — NOT a ‘Vietnam Times’ Vet

‘Putin – tsar of disinfo’: French TV teaches children about ‘Russian fake news’

A France 4 game show for teenagers has tried to take on the elusive – yet fearsome – Russian “fake news,” teaching children that all the media in Russia is either suppressed or controlled directly by Vladimir Putin.

The show, dubbed Escape News, was launched last year as an escape room-type game for teenagers. The program has quite a sounding motto – ‘Avoid the traps of the info’ – yet the way it does so, unfortunately, appears to be quite questionable.

The recent issue of the show was dubbed ‘Vladimir Putin – the tsar of disinfo?’ and focused on the president personally, as well as on Russia in general – including RT. Despite the proclaimed goal of the show, the whole issue was borderline fake news itself.

UK Media Silence On Yellow Vests? Deceased German Journalist’s Work Has Answers

Two days ago, we could not confirm a widely shared claim the British press had gotten a D-Notice ordering a clamp on any coverage of the Yellow Vest movement in France. But what there is no doubt of, is the prevalence of such D-Notice orders – media gag orders which prohibit or greatly direct the coverage of certain matters of public interest, normally covered by ‘free’ media, but in fact we find something rather ominous and indeed subversive to the work of independent media.

"I Forgive Him": Nathan Phillips Says Covington Students Need "Sensitivity Training" After "Coached, Insincere" Interview

Even if the full-length video showing Native American activist Nathan Phillips and a hate group known as the Black Hebrew Israelites blatantly confronting and harassing the Nick Sandmann and his fellow students from Covington High School during last week's March for Life played on a 24-hour loop on every cable news channel in the country, NBC News would probably still insist that Sandmann was somehow at fault, and that Phillips, who has since been exposed for lying about his service in Vietnam, was the victim of racially motivated harassment.

And so it is that during a segment on Thursday's Today Show, the network once again lent a microphone to Philips, who used his time to scold Sandmann and his fellow Covington Catholic students while insisting that they undergo "some kind of sensitivity training." Phillips added that, though their behavior "upset" him, he would like to "forgive" Sandmann and his peers.

Daily Mail demands browser warning U-turn

The Daily Mail is calling for a web browser alert that criticises its journalism to be changed.

The NewsGuard plug-in currently brings up a warning that says the newspaper's website "generally fails to maintain basic standards of accuracy and accountability".

It has given this advice since August.

But the matter came to prominence last week, after Microsoft updated its Edge browser app for Android and iOS devices and built in NewsGuard.

This prompted several other media outlets to report the story.

"We have only very recently become aware of the NewsGuard start-up and are in discussions with them to have this egregiously erroneous classification resolved as soon as possible," said a spokesman for Mail Online.

NYT Columnist Calls Tulsi Gabbard ‘Assad Toady,’ Can’t Define or Spell Term

During an interview with Joe Rogan earlier this week, New York Times columnist Bari Weiss called Hawaii representative and prospective Democratic Party presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard an “Assad toady.” But when challenged on it, Weiss couldn’t define the term or even spell it, much less substantiate the accusation itself.

Weiss, an opinion columnist for the New York Times, went on the radio show The Joe Rogan Experience on Monday to discuss current events, but things got embarrassing when she went in on Gabbard, a progressive Democrat whose foreign policy positions have turned more than a few heads.

Mass shooting deaths in 2018 killed 68 Americans and the mass media freaked out; ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS murdered 2,000 people – MSM silent

It’s astonishing how at least 200 million Americans have no clue what’s really going on in this country regarding deaths caused by illegal immigrants, prescription medications, vaccines, hospital superbugs (think MRSA), chemotherapy, and hospital surgery errors. That’s because the mainstream media, a.k.a. MSM, purposely fails to report any of it.

MSM Begs For Trust (Ha Ha)

The mainstream media absolutely is the enemy of the people; just because Trump says it doesn’t mean it’s not true. The only reason people don’t rise up and use the power of their numbers to force the much-needed changes that need to happen in our world is because they are being propagandized to accept the status quo day in and day out by the mass media’s endless cultural engineering project. They are the reason why wars go unopposed, why third parties never gain traction, why people consent to money hemorrhaging upward to the wealthiest of the wealthy while everyone else struggles to survive. The sooner people wake up from the perverse narrative matrix of the plutocratic media, the better.
