Here is the latest from the left’s war on reality. For eight years, we listened to left-wing manufactured narrative “fake news” from broadcast and print news organizations, and no one even discussed it. Now that Trump won, the left-elite are hell-bent to blame anyone and anything other then their own catastrophic failures. Now, free speech is the culprit, and they mean to shut down sites like mine that cover news the enemedia won’t cover. You just can’t make this stuff up.
What’s the latest approach the left-wing titans are taking? Facebook is going to “vet” news stories through uber-leftist orgs. This is the stuff of Kafka. Take, for example, the story I covered extensively about the five-year-old girl raped by a Muslim mob in Idaho. They said it was “mostly false.” But it was true – a five-year-old girl was sexually attacked, peed on, peed in her mouth and orally raped. I spoke many times at length with the victim’s mother, her family and others involved in the case. The attack was video-ed and witness by a neighbor, Grandma Jo. But Snopes said it wasn’t true. Snopes said there was no knife. But there was a knife. And that the child wasn’t raped. But she was. Did Snopes reach out to the family? No.
Facebook Using Unreliable Liberal Fact-Checker To Fight ‘Fake News’
By Peter Hasson, The Daily Caller, December 15, 2016:
As part of a new initiative cracking down on fake news announced on Thursday, Facebook will be partnering up with third party “fact-check” organizations that will alert users if a story they are about to read or share is “disputed.” One of the organizations Facebook is partnering up with is Snopes, which The Daily Caller has exposed more than once butchering the truth or seemingly outright lying in service of a liberal narrative.
We believe in giving people a voice and that we cannot become arbiters of truth ourselves, so we’re approaching this problem carefully. We’ve focused our efforts on the worst of the worst, on the clear hoaxes spread by spammers for their own gain, and on engaging both our community and third party organizations,” Facebook vice president Adam Mosseri said in a press release Thursday.
NiemanLab notes that Facebook will be relying on four fact-check organizations: ABC News, FactCheck.org, PolitiFact and Snopes. (RELATED: Fact-Checking Snopes: Website’s Political ‘Fact-Checker’ Is Just A Failed Liberal Blogger)
In July, TheDC caught Snopes lying about the lack of visible American flags at the first day of the Democratic National Convention, claiming an image from the second day of the convention was actually from the first day, in an attempt to debunk a factual story from TheDC.

Just last week, a Snopes “fact-check” of an investigative piece by The Daily Caller News Foundation was riddled with factual errors and omissions, completely butchering the truth. (RELATED: CAUGHT: Snopes Deliberately Omits Key Details To Protect Kerry’s State Dept)
Facebook has been under pressure to censor “fake news” — a term which some liberal journalists have applied to their conservative competitors.
Legitimate conservative news organizations like The Blaze or Independent Journal Review (IJR) have been smeared with the fake news label by liberal journalists
