Facebook Plans To Bury Alternative News

anthony freda facebookBy Kurt Nimmo

Facebook has decided to make it easier for Snopes, Factcheck.org, ABC News, the Associated Press, and PolitiFact to flag “fake news.”

What this means is alternative news stories the establishment decides are fake will be pushed down in the Facebook newsfeed.

“Facebook is giving fact-checking organizations a kind of power they’ve never had before: the power to publicly brand other websites’ stories as ‘disputed’ and push them down in Facebook users’ newsfeeds,” reports Vox.

PolitiFact has been accused of bias and serious errors in judgment by critics on the right and left.

The Knight Foundation, one of PolitiFact’s largest donors, gave $200,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Knight also funds the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, a journalism school owned by The Tampa Bay Times newspaper.

It was also reported the International Fact-Checking Network financed by George Soros will be involved with the Facebook effort. It is hosted by the Poynter Institute and also funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Google, and the National Endowment for Democracy. NED’s founder said the organization does what the CIA did in the old days, namely take down disfavored governments and produce propaganda.

Poynter also gets money from the Omidyar Network run by the billionaire eBay founder Pierre Omidyar.

The Omidyar Network has teamed up with Soros’ Open Society on projects and given grants to third parties using the Soros-funded Tides Foundation. Tides underwrites numerous progressive causes.

Facebook will soon begin relegating alternative news stories to the bottom of the newsfeed where they are less likely to be viewed on the recommendations of these biased and establishment-linked organizations.

This will be a significant development for many alternative media websites. For instance, my website receives a large share of referred traffic from Facebook. If Facebook users do not see my stories in their newsfeed, a lot less traffic will be driven to my website and this is exactly what Soros and the establishment want.

  1. Birds [vultures] of a feather. Billionaire techie Pierre Omidyar being sugar daddy patron for Greenwald via The Intercept. Greenwald backstabbd NSA whistle blowers by obfuscating State Secret Privilege evidentiary rule abuse. Omidyar, along with the usual banking and Silicon Valley suspects who financially launched Facebook, is bankrolling Lenddo, a Singapore based company creating software algorithms for Chinese-style Social Credit Score monitoring for the rest of the world.

    • Absolutely by design…as they’ve ‘set’ the net with the installation of ‘Fakebook -Twitts-errr’ et al a relative few yrs ago & waited for the the opportune time to spring their trap…& are proceeding to haul it up on deck & tumble the ‘catch’ wriggling & wiggling onto the deck of the SS NWO ‘s transmogrified ship of state…to be sorted…absorbed & discarded & compartmentalized as needed…being the cold calculating 0.01% vampire parasites that they truly embody within their kakistocratic ponerology now on full display….right you are

  2. The false news come out of those who want to spread lies,
    Not of those who want to explain news

    It will be interesting to determine what news is fake and what is not. What will be Face Book’s` method of determining the truthfulness and factualness of a particular story? Us citizens already have a hard enough time trying to determine that with the mainstream news outlets. If Facebook has a secret formula or algorithm of determining truthfulness, I would hope they will share it with the rest of us.

  4. Not to worry sheeple: the great, wonderful, all powerful Tramp, sorry Trump, will wave his wand and make it all great again. Unless he changes his mind again or again

  5. More sour grapes from the goat worshipers. They couldn’t bring the populace out to vote for the Hildebeest, even though she paid folks to show up and applaud.
    The Soros NGO’s were paying folks to go wilding in the streets.
    They obviously enjoy mayhem.
    Propaganda from the the great boob tube scripts that spew hatred for one side is proof that the conspiracy folks had it right all along.
    MSM is dead.
    Long Live independence.

  6. The irony is in how everyone seems to live around Facebook. I hope they do it fast a quick so you all can realize there is still a world out there with limitless options of sharing information. The fact so many depend on such a single entity is simply a sign of their other stigmas. For instance, as long as you believe in government, you will never see freedom.
