World’s Chief Fake News Purveyor, CEO of NY Times, Wants Corporations or Government to Eradicate “Fake News”

18

“Fake News” is a fake story designed to take out our First Amendment rights. The left is completely and utterly out of power. They have nothing but time on their hands to accomplish long sought-after goals. Destroying free speech is top of their list. Their objective now is to destroy Trump’s presidency and anyone who supports him.

The left still controls the media, academia and the culture (movies media, music), and they mean to wield this club unmercifully. Their enemy? The truth. How to silence the truth? Call it “hate speech,” or now “fake news,” and ban it.

Our history is rich with a cacophony of diverse voices. During the 1800’s, there were thousands of different newspapers and pamphleteers — all raucous and loud. It wasn’t until the 20th century that the consolidation of myriad media companies led to a small handful controlling the flow and framing of news and information.

By 1835, the United States was making newspaper history. Newspapers had freed themselves from government control over content, and there were more newspapers and newspaper readers than in any other country…

The left wants that control back.

There is conspiracy theory and there is conspiracy fact, and what we have on our hands is one mother of a left-wing conspiracy parading as a right-wing conspiracy.

New York Times

“New York Times CEO Delivers Speech on Eradicating ‘Fake News,'” by Kurt Nimmo, Activist Post, December 14, 2016:

On Monday, Mark Thompson, President and CEO of The New York Times Company, delivered remarks to members of the Detroit Economic Club.

Thompson threw around the idea of government censorship of “fake news.”

What can we do about it? The first thing that springs to some people’s minds is some form of censorship or regulation. I note in my book how the 17th century British political thinker Thomas Hobbes came, at least in part, to blame extremist sermons and tracts – tracts which could be mass-produced and disseminated widely within hours thanks to the still relatively new technology of printing – for England’s descent into civil war. He later argued that the war might never have happened if a few thousand of the extremists had been rounded up and executed.

Now, while I don’t suppose that even the sternest critic of fake news would advocate the death penalty, there are certainly some who favor a kind of functional censorship, with fake news sites identified and taken down, and fake news somehow filtered out of search and social media by human or algorithmic means.

Thompson then admits this is unrealistic. Besides, there is a thing called the First Amendment.

And who said that the public should only be allowed to read the facts anyway? The First Amendment essentially says they should be allowed to write, distribute and read anything they damn well please. If some of them turn out to prefer churning out and eagerly consuming lies and fantasies, so be it.

He then suggests a Ministry of Truth, of sorts, run by corporations, but admits this is worrisome.

If we imagine the tools that might be used to excise fake news from the web and social media – a mighty algorithm combing every sentence, every image for any trace of falsehood, aided perhaps by legions of human scrutineers employed by some of the world’s biggest corporations – they sound suspiciously like the means of control employed by the world’s most repressive regimes. They are probably not practical and, even if they were, they would be worrisome or worse in our free societies.

Thompson then falls back on a solution imposed by the state by using food labeling as an example.

Imagine a supermarket where the products had no nutrition information printed on them, and no one was prepared to vouch for quite where they had come from, and the owners told you they couldn’t really take responsibility for the quality of anything. Would you feed your children food purchased from that supermarket?

Nutrition information on food products was mandated by the FDA in 1994. Is this what Mr. Thompson is advocating? A new government agency—a ministry of truth—that will decide what is fake and what is not fake news?…

    These people act like fake news is something the citizens cannot understand or discern. Fake news is everywhere. Don’t worry about it NYT. It is not a problem.

      It is not just the NY Times. It is Facebook, Twitter, Google, and most of the Globalists. Nancy Pelosi’s daughter is now saying that Alex Jones is causing her to receive death threats. She, and a law firm in the Hillary camp, are encouraging members of the Electoral College to hear a presentation by those professional lying coup masters at the CIA concerning the lie that Russia interfered in our elections. The truth is that Hillary received over 20% of her campaign funds from Saudi Arabia. Who knows how much she received from China, her real backers. Both nations brag about their right to affect our elections. The US, NATO, and George Soros toppled the democratically elected former Pro Russia President of Russia, and put in a Pro EU Nazi like government. The powers that be don’t dispute the truths that came out through Wikileaks. They dispute our right to have access to the truth. Russia did not change the outcome of our election. The leaks came, in large part, from patriotic whistleblowers within our intelligence community, and even within the DNC. The powers that be want a global Fourth Reich, a satanic NWO that controls every aspect of life for every person on the planet, even our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. They brag that they have vaccines that even affect that part of your brain that is able to understand, and receive, God. They can shut that down. These people have been developing powerful technologies of control for many decades. So, whereas we may not be worried about the NY Times, and other mouthpieces for the NWO, we recognize their power. Moreover, we have the prophetic word given to the Apostle John while imprisoned on the Isle of Patmos. Here is a URL to Bible Hub. You can read the verses in different translations. I use the Authorized King James for the most part. But sometimes other versions render some passages easier to understand. URL: http://biblehub.com/revelation/13-16.htm

      God is causing the depth of arrogance and depravity of the plans of the NWO to be exposed all around the world. He uses people like Pamela Geller, Breitbart, Alex Jones Infowars, Drudge Report, Project Veritas, and many more, to do so. We have various media stars coming out in favor of killing Donald Trump, and not even getting in trouble with the government for doing so. The Bible says that the Holy Spirit is restraining evil until as such time as God, the Father, ends that restraining force, and brings judgment on a Christ rejecting world. I believe that this election shows that God is giving us a small window of time to help people see the plans arrayed against them. We wrestle against principalities and powers, forces of Satan, which use ignorant or plain evil people to carry out Satan’s plans. Prophecy is going to unfold. The NWO will come, and will be the most evil thing ever. While we do fight for freedom in the natural world, it is important to realize the end game. People need to cry out to God to save them, and make them fit to be in God’s Kingdom. Everyone will have to choose God or his controlled opposition, who is Satan. There is no third choice. I apologize that this post is so long, like many of mine. I hate long posts, too. But I know there are many here who are smart and courageous souls, but who are not believing on Jesus, and walking with him. My time is short, and I do not want them to go to hell.

    Didn’t Merkel propose something similar. To control the news. Who decides what, what is good or ok for rest of us.
    Seems like UK is down similar road, even to removing advertisements off buses due to body shaming. Such lies. All must follow because some could not assimilate to western culture.

    • Sailing J

      I don’t know if Merkel did, but Mao, Stalin, and Hitler all did.

    Not unlike the failed and bankrupt music and book publishing industry, the lame stream news media are desperately trying to get the government to legislate censorship. Subcontracted to the self anointed few, so as to force the opinion of the islamic, democrat, socialist left, on all of society. As the lame stream media fail and go bankrupt, there is great rejoicing as the liars of the lame stream media are now in no position to dictate the news, social media has taken over, soon replacing the useless liars that journalists have become.

  • john53

    What exactly is the New York Times asking the government to do? padlock them out of their building or placing all of the senior management and journalist under arrest. The NYT sources on most of its articles are unknown (to the public), evidence is weak if they bother to provide any at all. Their commentary is at best poor and not very logical. You really want to stop “fake news” lock the door of the NYT’s and any management or journalist send them to Russia to create the new “Pravda” for Mr. Putin, they are extremely qualified to follow directions from the party, lots of practice.
    I am surprised that the NYT acknowledges that the 1st Amendment exists in America.

  • peakpower

    1st amendment will be defended by the second.

  • RealEngineer2

    The easiest indicator of journalistic integrity is their “comments section”… OR LACK OF ONE. The reaction of the “deplorable unwashed masses” to an article gives insight to its emotional volatility, visceral consequences, and tolerance of its acceptability as truthful honesty. This is where Pam Geller, Breitbart, and most Conservative sites “reign supreme”.

    The hallmark of “fake news” as “purveyor of propaganda” is a medium conspicuously devoid of reader reaction, a definitive FEAR of being PROVEN WRONG. There are varying degrees of “comment forbearance”, ranging from “unmoderated anonymous” to “moderator censored by agenda” to “identity-traceable validation” to “no-comments-section-at-all” (like the New York Times).

    Most conservative sites have “anonymous” comments, understandably moderated for “potty-words” and flat-out insanity (visceral criminalistic threats of assault, assassination, etc.). Dissenting opinions do crop up and remain posted, but are quickly invalidated by other commenters.

    The (very) few Liberal sites that allow commenting likely have “identity-traceable validation”, exposing users to retaliation. This is a censoring mechanism in its own right, as “opinion” will be moderated by
    “consequences”. Another technique is the infamous “comment awaiting moderation”, likely due to not being “politically correct” enough. Most MSM avoids this “hassle” by abandoning comments altogether.

    The First Amendment essentially says they should be allowed to write, distribute and read anything they damn well please.

    I don’t believe that.

    My impression is the framers of the First Ammendment wanted to protect political speech. I do not think they wanted to protect rappers whose “art” calls for killng the Korean grocer or descriptions of scantily clad women engaged in …. well you get the idea. Pedants might even note that this pesky ammendment starts with the ringing words, “Congress shall make no law ….”. Despite subsequent Supreme Court decisions that subverted the intent of the framers of various ammendments (see Raoul Berger’s Government By Judiciary), the framers of the Constitution, as ammeded, left broad powers in the hands of the states to do essentially anything they damn well pleased (short of violating the Constitution).

    A liar telling a truth is still a liar & makes the truth a lie because of the identity & system he represents.

    It’s like the fantasy person who makes everything he touches gold or in this case deception.

    Sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, mass-murderer, crucifier, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist, child-rapist & pederast who ‘kissed’ little boys’ penises & sucked boys’ lips & tongues, theist psychopath, who burned people alive for not praying or not being part of his conspiracy & to extort them, who gouged out eyes & cut off body-parts, gays-killer, Jews-killer, atheists-killer & child-beater Muhammad’s Islam-guide, commands war to be deceit & describes it’s unproven deity, a deity which must be assumed is a deception, as best of all deceivers.

    Lies are the fabric of government-policies globally.

    The Geller-report is a stark contrast to that criminal media-conspiracy.

    As it seems news not being Islam-propaganda are often censored as if they’d be fake.

    But these news are decisive for a healthy society, governance & democracy supported policy-making.

    Everytime we see Barack Hussein Obama announcing something we see a 1-man fake-news Islamic agency behind whose deception-side policies are carried out like Muhammadism-conspiracy & -propaganda, arming Islamic State, Saudi Arabia, funding Iran, Egypt-, north-Sudan-Muhammadism-conspirators, protecting Boko Haram terrorists who murder & burn alive 100’s? of 1000’s of people, promoting them as having “legitimate concerns” & hiding crimes like enslavement of Africans in Saudi Arabia, Islamic Mauritania (20% or more) & elsewhere, freeing Islamic terrorists, locking up innocent soldiers.

    Another Islamic one man fake-news agency is George W. Bush who proclaimed that Islam would be the religion of peace, it needs to be investigated if the allegations are true, flew out Saudi-official reponsibles (Iranians too?) that may have been complicit in the New York Twin-Tower attacks.

    It wouldn’t be a surprise if governments would create fake news to ban them along with real news.

    Every national pro-Islam-conspiracy government is an obstacle to freedom, that’s why we need a global empire.

    Politicians in non-Muslim countries think they can plant Islamic citizens inside their countries, while they can’t even manage to free African slaves in Islamic countries, girls in forced relationships or atheists & other non-Muslims imprisoned in Islamic tyrannies, while they can’t even speak about or learn the truth about sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, mass-murderer, crucifier, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist, child-rapist & pederast who ‘kissed’ little boys’ penises & sucked boys’ lips & tongues, theist psychopath, who burned people alive for not praying or not being part of his conspiracy & to extort them, who gouged out eyes & cut off body-parts, gays-killer, Jews-killer, atheists-killer & child-beater Muhammad in their own countries.

    Something’s terribly wrong here.

    People that are aware of the Islamic threat globally, rise up for a global English language-empire with according electable factions. It’s ill-advised to delve in nationalist romanticism now. We need a global empire to protect ethics: human rights & ecology.

    We need to file a suit against the planting of Islam into non-Muslim- (& Muslim-) countries, at some global court, at the U.S., African, European, Australian court & we need to set up a new global non-Muslim empire court & government.

    Planting Islam has nothing to do with national sovereignty.
    National sovereignty has become a curse in that sense, so to speak.

    Ban Islam, the Muhammadism-conspiracy & save lives & profound human rights globally.

    Nationalists underestimating the threat of global Islam undermine & threaten the work of global imperialism to counter & defeat the infiltration & harassment by the global Muhammadism-conspiracy since sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, mass-murderer, crucifier, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist, child-rapist & pederast who ‘kissed’ little boys’ penises & sucked boys’ lips & tongues, theist psychopath, who burned people alive for not praying or not being part of his conspiracy & to extort them, who gouged out eyes & cut off body-parts, gays-killer, Jews-killer, atheists-killer & child-beater Muhammad. 

    Humanity floats around without concept while being infiltrated & harassed by Islam.

    We need a global, voteable party to establish a global empire dedicated to human rights & ecology, free the Africans enslaved in Islamic countries, the girls forced into rape-relationships & the non-Muslims imprisoned.

    We can’t afford division in these critical times.

    We need a party that is global, wants English as global, optional official language, that is dedicated to human rights & ecology & that condemns sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, mass-murderer, crucifier, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist, child-rapist & pederast who ‘kissed’ little boys’ penises & sucked boys’ lips & tongues, theist psychopath, who burned people alive for not praying or not being part of his conspiracy & to extort them, who gouged out eyes & cut off body-parts, gays-killer, Jews-killer, atheists-killer & child-beater Muhammad. 

    They say Islam would be really peaceful to fool the people, arm Islam & plant it inside nations like now in Europe, Australia & the U.S.

    They don’t expose sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, mass-murderer, crucifier, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist, child-rapist & pederast who ‘kissed’ little boys’ penises & sucked boys’ lips & tongues, theist psychopath, who burned people alive for not praying or not being part of his conspiracy & to extort them, who gouged out eyes & cut off body-parts, gays-killer, Jews-killer, atheists-killer & child-beater Muhammad, founder of the Islam-conspiracy.

    Ban the Islam-conspiracy & democracy, save lives NOW.

    We can have a global culture.
    But it’s a fail to assume that a global culture has to be superficial & uncondemning about the Islam-Muhammadism-conspiracy & that prosperity can be just achieved if we work nationally in the U.S., Europe, & Australia instead of imperialistically for human rights globally.

    We have to make clear that governance is no place for Nazis, violent nationalists or Muhammadists.

    We have an agenda. We want the non-Muhammadist conspirator prisinors freed, enslaved Africans freed, little girls forced to sex-slavery freed, Islam banned, Korans confiscated.

    Enough of the politicians like Theresa May, Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, Angela Merkel, Mark Zuckerberg, Pope Francis who insult & deceive us, arm Islam & plant it into our systems.

    We have to make prosecutions & defend our honor & human rights in the long-term.

    Where is the love?
    Have we lost touch with reality?
    We, as people have lost touch with love.

    Love is what it should be all about.
    From a love & not corrupt perspective we understand the social media posts that condemn the Muhammadism-conspiracy & defend Israel for human rights.

    We are divided & made ineffective because of internationalism instead of globalism, because of regional languages instead of English.

    We need a global, English language party & TV-channel to develop an effective human rights protecting culture that condemns the Muhammadism-conspiracy & in an imperialist way enacts ethics, that is human rights & ecology, globally.

    We reject any forced idealization of sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, mass-murderer, crucifier, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist, child-rapist & pederast who ‘kissed’ little boys’ penises & sucked boys’ lips & tongues, theist psychopath, who burned people alive for not praying, for not being part of his conspiracy & to extort them, who gouged out eyes & cut off body-parts, gays-killer, Jews-killer, atheists-killer & child-beater Muhammad on people.

    The constitution is out of touch with reality & love if it doesn’t condemn sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, mass-murderer, crucifier, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist, child-rapist & pederast who ‘kissed’ little boys’ penises & sucked boys’ lips & tongues, theist psychopath, who burned people alive for not praying, for not being part of his conspiracy & to extort them, who gouged out eyes & cut off body-parts, gays-killer, Jews-killer, atheists-killer & child-beater Muhammad & doesn’t ban the Islam-conspiracy.

    A national constitution that lacks the global big picture about Islam is TREASON. 

    We need to look globally & protect the people from Islam instead of letting politicians arm the Islam-tyrannies, instead of letting those politicians organize Muhammadism-conspiracy imperialism invasion & letting those politicians force the glorification of sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, mass-murderer, crucifier, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist, child-rapist & pederast who ‘kissed’ little boys’ penises & sucked boys’ lips & tongues, theist psychopath, who burned people alive for not praying, for not being part of his conspiracy & to extort them, who gouged out eyes & cut off body-parts, gays-killer, Jews-killer, atheists-killer & child-beater Muhammad on children, citizens & the world.

    Ban Islam, save lives.
    Close the mosques, confiscate the Korans.

    Muslims know Islam is not ethical, that’s why it’s only right to them to ban Islam.

    People with a mind-mix of no love & consequently uncondemning attitude towards Islam have made us be open to a culture that is open to hate against Africans, Jews, Christians, non-Muslims, atheists, women, children, gays, open to enslavement of Africans & girls, rape, crucifixions, stonings, gouging out of eyes, institutionalized & self-inititated decapitations, torture, amputations, clitodirectomies, circumcision, animal torture, pillaging, robbing, burning people alive, according imperialism & war.

    We have been lulled into culture of superficiality, products, bad music, nationalism, admiration for Islam, for Muhammad.

    We need to integrate ourselves to Islam & Islamic regions by banning Islam, enacting love & human rights, freeing the imprisoned, the Africans enslaved, girls & women forced to sex-slave-marriage & NOT the other way around.

    The pathological tolerance for Islam has become a collective dangerous mind-control movement we know from Muhammadism-conspiracy imperialism regions & the Nazi-Muhammadism-conspiracy of Adolf Hitler & Amin el-Husseini that has to be be stopped NOW.

    There are those that claim to fight against Nazis but fight for the Nazis:
    History is being scrubbed from Hitler’s partnership with Muhammadism-conspiracy Ottoman empire general, Grandmufti of Jerusalem Amin El-Husseini who led the Nazis & Nazi-Muhammadist troops, his nephew Arafat called him the great leader.

    Barack Hussein Obama promotes Muhammadism-conspiracy army Boko Haram, who murder, burn alive 100?’s of 1000’s of people as having “legitimate concerns”

    & blocked an Israeli arms helicopter-deal to Nigeria to fight Boko haram before the Muhammadist president.

    Furthermore I’ve read that U.S.policies equip & arm Islamic State group in Syria for their crucifixion, terror, lynch & rape-campaign by the hands of Turkey & U.S. & E.U.-armed Saudi Arabia & the U.S.-army.
    A thorough investigation has to take place.
    Read: Russia destroys most Isis heavy weaponry, US promptly airdrops 50 tons of weapons into Syria:

    “Harass & kill them until Islamic law is the only governance”, says Koran 8:39.

    We need a global empire to ban Islam & free the people.

    No tolerance for Islam in society, no African slaves enslaved in Mauritania or Saudi Arabia or elsewhere, no children raped, no people harassed by Islamic-police, no Islamic torture, whippings, stonings, clitodirectomies & crucifixions & torturous animal slaughters & no Muhammadism-conspiracy terrorism & imperialism.
    Islam feeds on our tolerance, it needs our tolerance, respect, it breathes on our fear.

    Our respect for Islam is it’s oxygen.

    Without our tolerance the Muhammadism-conspiracy vanishes into oblivion.

    We need a global, ethical imperialism to defeat the Muhammadism-conspiracy imperialism & free the people.

    The world should be made an English-language protectorate & English optional official language globally.

    Ban Islam, the Muhammadism-conspiracy & democracy, save lives & profound human rights globally.

    Did you know: There’s slavery today of Africans in Saudi Arabia, Mauritania(25%,50%?of population), new north Sudan, Kuwait, Bahrain, Yemen, Oman, Algeria, Lebanon, Qatar (?), Pakistan, UAE, Niger, Libya, Nigeria, Chad, Mali, Somalia & elsewhere inspired by sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, mass-murderer, crucifier, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist, child-rapist & pederast who ‘kissed’ little boys’ penises & sucked boys’ lips & tongues, theist psychopath, who burned people alive for not praying, for not being part of his conspiracy & to extort them, who gouged out eyes & cut off body-parts, gays-killer, Jews-killer, atheists-killer & child-beater Muhammad who owned Africans as slaves & said that his deity turned Africans black, so their descendants would be slaves to Arabs & Turks (Abeed means African & slave in Arabic,) (Read more about sadist, racist slaver Muhammad at WikiIslam). & IslamicState stated they want to revive enslavement of Africans in America as I’ve read here.Anti-African racists & Muhammadism Out of Africa! 
    Islam is intolerable. The Koran says: “Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies” (22:19).
    Ban Islam, the Muhammadism-conspiracy & democracy & save lives & profound human rights globally.
    Help me to win the next election with my worldwide low-budget-campaign, for human rights & ecology, globally.

    All the public wants is factual news stories that are written with some degree of perspective but that is not what we get. Instead, we are fed a constant harangue of leftist talking points on such inanities as race, gun control, the travesty that was this past election, “islamaphobia”, and the global warming hoax.

    Remember, the Second Amendment protects all the others.
