Is Facebook fighting “fake news” — or opinions you don’t like?

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder
 

Facebook is promising to crack down on "fake news" but in a year when the social media giant was caught suppressing conservative viewpoints in news feeds, should we be worried about this latest move?

Watch as I explain why we all need to be worried about the people Facebook is hiring to decide what is and is not "fake news."

According to reports, many are radical leftists.

They have fact checks and companies hired to get full facts.
Since rebel entertainment has less than 20% real. It is going to affect rebel and Ezra dramatically. With Facebook and google(YouTube) both planning on doing this. In the near future I don’t think we will see any more post or Facebook account by Ezra.

There are going to use SNOPES, which is very left wing, and called Fox News fake news. Just keep that in mind. They also continue to say the story of Trump mocking a disabled reporter is true. It is not true and has been debunked months ago.

Do yourself a favour. Close all your social media feeds. Pick up the phone and TALK to someone or maybe go visit them. You’ll both be better for it.

It really is too bad that the left/socialists/SJW simply cannot understand that they exhibit all the characteristics of an hateful tyrannical dictatorship.

Hateful – by blocking or entirely censoring any opinion they do not like.

Tyrannical – by forcing their censorship on people by using the power they own in whatever media they control.

Dictatorship – by ignoring any democratic means that might lead to fair and equitable free speech.

I am sure the if a leftist/socialist/SJW reads my comment he/she will think I am just using rhetoric, but is it really just rhetoric?

How much of Google’s, Zuckerberg’s, or the MSM’s actions fit the definitions I listed above.

Is anyone surprised? I’m not. The only difference is that one month ago Facebook denied doing this.

Fact checking is now just another word for censorship.

Yes, Dan, we are well on your way. The unfathomable part is we seem to be doing it willingly.
2 Thessalonians perhaps has the reason:

“For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.”

Since I was hacked, sabotaged and forced off FaceBook, I have noticed more internet news outlets are using FB to run their Comments section…which means you CANNOT comment if you’ve been victimized by Zuckerberg for being of a conservative bent!
This seems very similar to that warning in Revelation 13:17…
“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

Related experience, but through Google.

I typed in “Conservative Party of Canada Leadership Race” for a google search, because I was wanting to check on the background of a couple of lesser candidates. I did not use the acronym CPC, but typed the full title.

In the trend list from google for this search for the Conservative Party of Canada, the first trending web-site recommended was the one for the L.P.C. donation web-site. Obviously, anyone interested in the CPC leadership wants to contribute to the LPC first.

In short, the mind set of the regressive left running google trying to influence the narrative.

Just another power grab by elites to control the media, I have zero faith in them to do this properly, They will censor everything they do not agree with, The left cannot stand any one who has a different opinion than them and will stop at nothing to censor or stop any and all competing views. One only need look at the us election with the Hilary LOVE IN THAT WAS ON ALMOST EVERY NEWS FEED OUT THERE. people have seen through the smoke screen and only the truly gullible fall for the incredible BS spouted off by the MSM.Just go look at the CBC the liberals propaganda wing.
