    "For news about Russia, Radio Liberty," he said. "For news about America, Soviet newspapers." He smiled. "Countries lie about themselves, tell truth about others."

    I saw them on TV, all easy smiles and flowing stories. They seemed to have found them pretty easily too. For people making $200k out of writing fake news, I was surprised that some of them can't even speak a word of English, they needed a translator in both directions. More fake news about fake news?

    Don't be fooled by this sudden concern for truth, this is a fake epidemic of fake news, this is an attack on alternative media, google and facebook are already banning 'fake news' web sites from their advertising networks and there are calls for more to be done, you don't have to be a Philadelphia lawyer to work out where this is going..

Marcuse’s theory of victim groups as the new proletariat, combined with Horkheimer’s critical theory, found an outlet in academia, where it became the basis for the post-structural movement–Gender Studies, LGBT/’Queer’ Studies, African-American Studies, Chicano Studies, etc. All of these ‘Blank Studies’ brazenly describe their mission as tearing down traditional Judeo-Christian values and the accepted traditions of Western culture, and placing in their stead a moral relativism that equates all cultures and all philosophies–except for Western civilization, culture, and philosophy, which are ‘exploitative’ and ‘bad.'”

    That is a very well written article. In fact it is too well written, as you can see straight away what it's purpose is. What ever happened to subtlety?

    What is it's purpose, except to expose the power of false news and the cynicism of alt-right and turkish government sites - and the barking nature of some conspiracy theory true believers? Like the armed investigator who turned up at the pizzagate restaurant and shot a hole in the ceiling to see if the story was true:

    After reading that article I have no doubt that it is fake news made up by a bunch of loony conspiracy theorists. As they mentioned those exact words 20 times in the article, I don't even think an investigation by the authorities is necessary, as it is clearly an open and shut case. The BBC really know what they are talking about having had 50 years of experience dealing with Jimmy Savile

    That is the purpose imo, I'm sticking with my first instinct about this, if you think about the solution to this problem you will have your answer, fake news is now a problem, we can't have random nutters taking the law in to their own hands now can we? it's a threat to democracy too and all that blah blah blah, alternative media and fake news sites must be shut down and anyone sharing fake news stories (even if they are 100% true) are dangerous, I'm starting to think that the fixated threat assessment centre that I was talking about in the other thread might come in to play a lot earlier than I thought

    The MSM has lost the ear of the electorate in the US, and this war on fake media is clearly an attempt to get the general population back under control.

    No need mate, I read a report from the president of the CFR three years ago, and when he became a national security adviser to Trump earlier this year, it was obvious where they would be heading if Trump won the presidential election.

    It isn't an attack on "alternative" media. It's basic education. Before quoting a source and a story, read it first, and get a few other sources. Simple.

    How often do people post links to stories that haven't been read first?
