    More Fake News: Who's On The Washington Post Blacklist?


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fheeAgATQ5o


    The Washington Post recently featured a front page article accusing over 200 websites of being part of a vast Russian propaganda campaign to steal the election from Hillary and give the presidency to Trump. Major sites like Drudge and Zero Hedge are allegedly part of this vast conspiracy, as is the Ron Paul Institute. The Post article links to a "study" by an anonymous group as its source for the wild allegation. And that source calls for a federal criminal investigation of these alternative news sources. Is this neo-McCarthyism about to turn dangerous for free speech?

    @RJB I think we've been exposed.

    As a Russian Propaganda Agent booster, just what exactly am I trying to accomplish?

    Do they specify?

    I'm supposed to be trying to take down the commies in the U.S. by calling for less commie crap in the U.S.? Is that my angle?

    Love this Headline: “The Washington Post: Shills for a Failed, Frantic Status Quo That Has Lost Control of the Narrative
    http://www.silverdoctors.com/headlin...ve/#more-74543

    Labeling all dissent “enemy propaganda” is of course the classic first phase of state-sponsored propaganda and the favorite tool of well-paid illiberal apologists for an illiberal regime.

    Labeling everyone who dissents or questions the ruling elite’s narrative as tools of a foreign power is classic McCarthy-era witch-hunting, i.e. a broad-brush way of marginalizing and silencing critics with an accusation that is easy to fabricate but difficult to prove. Such unsupported slander is a classic propaganda technique. …

    The real useful-idiot shills are the editors and hacks paid by the Washington Post, who are busy penning articles such as “Why the electoral college should choose Hillary Clinton”. …

    Foreign Policy Journal: The Washington Post’s Fake News Story about “Fake News”
    http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/...out-fake-news/

    The [Washington Post] story is simply bursting with anti-Russian references:
    • An online magazine header – “Trolling for Trump: How Russia Is Trying to Destroy Our Democracy.”
    • “the startling reach and effectiveness of Russian propaganda campaigns.”
    • “more than 200 websites as routine peddlers of Russian propaganda during the election season.”
    • “stories planted or promoted by the disinformation campaign were viewed more than 213 million times.”
    • “The Russian campaign during this election season … worked by harnessing the online world’s fascination with ‘buzzy’ content that is surprising and emotionally potent, and tracks with popular conspiracy theories about how secret forces dictate world events.”
    • “Russian-backed phony news to outcompete traditional news organizations for audience”
    • “They use our technologies and values against us to sow doubt. It’s starting to undermine our democratic system.”
    • “Russian propaganda operations also worked to promote the ‘Brexit’ departure of Britain from the European Union.”
    • “Some of these stories originated with RT and Sputnik, state-funded Russian information services that mimic the style and tone of independent news organizations yet sometimes include false and misleading stories in their reports.”
    • “a variety of other false stories — fake reports of a coup launched at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey and stories about how the United States was going to conduct a military attack and blame it on Russia” …


    It must be noted that the Washington Post article fails to provide a single example showing how the actual facts of a specific news event were rewritten or distorted by a Russian agency to produce a news event with a contrary political message. What then lies behind such blatant anti-Russian propaganda? In the new Cold War such a question requires no answer. The new Cold War by definition exists to discredit Russia simply because it stands in the way of American world domination. In the new Cold War the political spectrum in the mainstream media runs the gamut from A to B.

    When Truth-Telling Becomes Russian Propaganda
    http://www.globalresearch.ca/when-tr...aganda/5560284

    Fake news is a US government, mainstream media specialty – proliferating managed news misinformation agitprop, truth-telling suppressed on issues mattering most. Propaganda wars precede hot ones. Deception, popular fiction and Big Lies launch them. Intense Russia bashing risks world peace, stability and security. Washington’s imperial war machine is humanity’s greatest threat. …

    House passage of the draconian US Intelligence Authorization Act … It aims to counter nonexistent “measures by Russia to exert covert influence, including exposing falsehoods, agents of influence, corruption, human rights abuses, terrorism and assassinations carried out by the security services or political elites of the Russian Federation or their proxies.”

    It calls truth-telling by writers like myself and many others “fake news.” It threatens speech, independent media (especially online) and academic freedoms – the hallmark of a fascist dictatorship, wanting information and views contrary to official ones suppressed. … Does opposing Washington’s imperial war machine mean I’m unpatriotic? Does patriotism require supporting lawless government policies? … Does wanting peace and security, imperial wars ended? … Am I and many others like me endangered if we pursue truth-telling? … Will the US Intelligence Authorization Act change things? Are First Amendment rights threatened with annulment? Will fascist tyranny replace remaining freedoms? Will truth-telling be criminalized?
