It’s hardly shocking to discover that the new era of Facebook fascism has connections to globalist arch-villain George Soros. The bloodsucking Hungarian ghoul is plowing money into at last one of the leftist media organizations that have been charged with being the social media thought police.
Last week, Mark Zuckerberg’s social network announced that it was outsourcing the new censorship duties to several third party “partners” including Politifact, Snopes, Factcheck.org, and ABC News and the Associated Press to much applause from Democrats and the establishment media. However, all of these organizations have either been guilty of peddling fake news or as in the case of Snopes, may be an actual CIA front group – at least according to investigative journalist Wayne Madsen who makes the claim his new book The Almost Classified Guide to CIA Front Companies, Proprietaries & Contractors.
Poynter raves about their role in the battle against “Fake News” per their website “Facebook has a plan to fight fake news. Here’s where we come in”:
Facebook announced today that it is taking several steps to reduce the reach of fake news. One of the initiatives announced by the social network, third-party fact-checking, will allow verified fact-checkers in the United States to review stories to determine if they are true or false. If enough fact checkers mark a story as fak, the post will be marked as such in users’ News Feeds.
The company will rely on the code of principles developed by the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), an alliance of fact-checkers hosted by Poynter, as one prerequisite to determine whether to verify fact-checkers on its platform.
None of the mainstream media stories bother to mention what would seem to be a monumental conflict of interest given Soros’ being the sugar daddy of the Democratic party. Fake news isn’t only about publishing bullshit stories but rather than the lies of omission that are an integral part of big media.
Fortunately the much-maligned Breitbart News is on the job doing the tough reporting that the establishment media refuses to do. From the story “George Soros Finances Group Helping Facebook Flag ‘Disputed’ Stories”:
The organization partnered with Facebook to help determine whether a certain story is “disputed” is financed by billionaire George Soros and a slew of other left-wing funders.
The International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) drafted a code of five principles for news websites to accept, and Facebook yesterday announced it will work with “third-party fact checking organizations” that are signatories to the code of principles.
Facebook says that if the “fact checking organizations” determine that a certain story is fake, it will get flagged as disputed and, according to the Facebook announcement, “there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining why. Stories that have been disputed may also appear lower in News Feed.”
IFCN is hosted by the Poynter Institute for Media Studies. A cursory search of the Poynter Institute website finds that Poynter’s IFCN is openly funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundations as well as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Google, and the National Endowment for Democracy.
Poynter’s IFCN is also funded by the Omidyar Network, which is the nonprofit for liberal billionaire eBay founder Pierre Omidyar. The Omidyar Network has partnered with the Open Society on numerous projects and it has given grants to third parties using the Soros-funded Tides Foundation. Tides is one of the largest donors to left-wing causes in the U.S.
The rotten establishment is in a state of total panic now that independent and alternative media have finally overtaken their big name lie-peddlers and are new moving to crush dissident voices. It is imperative for all who read and write in the independent media to buckle down and prepare for all-out war as the global vampires and their whores in the U.S. domestic press look to regain a chokehold on the narrative.
