Fake Company, Facebook, to Battle Fake News?
By Daily Bell Staff - November 19, 2016

Zuckerberg: Facebook will develop tools to fight fake news … Fake news sites designed to trick you … Mark Zuckerberg has outlined a series of measures that should help prevent fake news from being shared on Facebook. The planned controls, which were announced in a late night Facebook post, follow accusations that a flood of fake news stories influenced the U.S. presidential election. -CNN

Facebook is taking steps to counteract “fake news” but in many ways Facebook is a fake company.

We wrote about it here, quoting an article entitled, “Behind Facebook—A New World Order Agenda?”

Facebook’s first round of venture capital funding ($US500,000) came from former Paypal CEO Peter Thiel. Author of anti-multicultural tome ‘The Diversity Myth’, he is also on the board of radical conservative group VanguardPAC.

The second round of funding into Facebook ($US12.7 million) came from venture capital firm Accel Partners. Its manager James Breyer was formerly chairman of the National Venture Capital Association, and served on the board with Gilman Louie, CEO of In-Q-Tel, a venture capital firm established by the Central Intelligence Agency in 1999. One of the company’s key areas of expertise are in “data mining technologies”.

Breyer also served on the board of R&D firm BBN Technologies, which was one of those companies responsible for the rise of the internet. Dr Anita Jones joined the firm, which included Gilman Louie. She had also served on the In-Q-Tel’s board, and had been director of Defence Research and Engineering for the US Department of Defence.

She was also an adviser to the Secretary of Defence and overseeing the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is responsible for high-tech, high-end development.

We can see that Facebook’s initial funding came from individuals affiliated with US government/intel facilities: the CIA and DARPA. There is no doubt the US government has promoted Facebook around the world. It is an affiliate of the Deep State far more than it is a “private company.”

And what about CNN, excerpted above?

CNN is in a sense a fake news organization just as Facebook is a fake social media facility. CNN  reportedly receives payments to promote stories that governments want publicized.

For instance, former CNN reporter Amber Lyon, a three-time Emmy award winner exposed CNN in 2015 for receiving payments from the US government and foreign governments to pick and choose news items, see here.

More from CNN:

“The bottom line is: we take misinformation seriously,” wrote Zuckerberg. “We take this responsibility seriously. We’ve made significant progress, but there is more work to be done.”

The CEO said that Facebook (FB, Tech30) is working to develop stronger fake news detection, a warning system, easier reporting and technical ways to classify misinformation.

… Zuckerberg did not say how quickly the measures would be in place. But they should make it much easier for users to flag misleading content — similar to the way cyberbullying can be reported with a single click on some social media.

The idea that users can flag “fake” news content would be more credible if the US government along with other governments had not already created squads of Internet monitors, see this article entitled, “US Government Using Trolls To Attack Conspiracy Theorists, here.

These monitors will surely be able to click articles that are in some sense inimical to various vested globalist interests.

The entire fake news controversy is suspect, starting with the idea that fake news “helped” Donald Trump get elected president of the US. As we recall, there was a good deal of fake news, but most of it seemed to emanate from the mainstream media.

This mainstream resolutely would not investigate or report on the worst of the Clintons’ apparent criminality – including potential rape, mishandling of classified data and “pay-to-play” donations to the Clinton Foundation.

Additionally, the mainstream reported a steady stream of polls favorable to Hillary by using tactics that exaggerated her voter endorsements.

We arrive at the justifiable conclusion that the “fake news” controversy is itself a fake one, that outfits such as CNN that are reporting on it are fake and that Internet facilities charged with identifying fake news items like Facebook are also fake.

Those behind this gambit obviously intend to use it to attack the alternative media, which has been very effective in puncturing the propaganda of the Deep State. The very largest irony is that this fake news meme is aimed at truth-telling in the alternative media.

Conclusion: Whether or not this will work is a separate question, as we wrote here. But the idea is to create such a large lie that people will believe it. This has happened before.

    Read all the comments. Click on ALL the links. Read, view, listen to ALL content.

  • A fake news meme, aimed at truth-telling in the alternative media to subvert and corrupt the future path of those alternative media realities, will not work. Indeed, such an operation will be increasingly counter-productive and self-destructive and more revealing of those spent forces and perverted sources which would have peoples/nations/businesses following a hidden agenda.

    It is a not a smart move and reveals to one and all that there is a lack of intelligence in the systems which deal in fake news memes, and that is a catastrophic vulnerability which will always be ruthlessly exploited to the greatest effect by other systems and networks which recognise the weakness.

  • And the additional danger and every likelihood to and in established status quo, economy of truth peddling systems/elite executive office administrations, is that once they be told of their precarious position in such dire extreme and austere situations, and would choose to ignore and or too slowly acknowledge and be actively presenting evidence of a radical fundamental hearts and minds change of direction/policy/story line, with alternate forces and sources align most naturally with their opposition and competing resources for lead from the front, and then rather than being thought proactive will they be forever reacting to stop the rot which will sweep through their systems.

    Indeed, it is difficult to impossible to not notice that blight already doing its thing because of the aforementioned lack of necessary intelligence in established systems.

    I’m a little surprised the term “fake news” is being used because fake doesn’t necessarily mean it’s untrue, only that it’s not official or authentic – i.e., not from the mainstream media. So what? A better term would be “false news,” which hopefully the alternative media will start using to describe the MSM propaganda.

    • Dimitri Ledkovsky

      Right. After all there can be something newsworthy in a faked story. The implication being that faked news is still news and becomes the truth when repeated often enough. Let us, say the MSM, determine the level of fakery.

  • Mark Zuckerberg is a fake.
    All Jews are fakes, liars, thieves and pimps.
    And I can prove it.

    • Dimitri Ledkovsky

      You’re frightening the children.

    • disqus_O6wVloLz23

      A Jew is not a type of person but a religion. There are good Jews and bad Jews just like good Christians and bad Christians. When you read many articles you will find Jews against each other based on principle not religion.

  • apberusdisvet

    So now it’s “fake news” when the Establishment determines it goes against its own disinformation and propaganda?

    • Ronjar__

      Exactly!

  • Ronjar__

    A nice way for powers to dismiss the revelations: “It’s fake news! – move on !”

  • disqus_O6wVloLz23

    How about calling it manipulating news because a judgement of good or bad is added to a news event? That seems to be the MSM purpose.

  • davidnrobyn

    Sounds like Zuckerberg is using technological overkill to determine which news is fake. Let me suggest a much lower-tech solution: Just have a SJW proofread articles, and everything which offends him/her will be labeled “fake news”.

  • ALPHAMEG

    People with the outlook of Jack Harper are idiots. Love thy neighbor, brother. The world needs love, not war. In determining if news is false, always consider the source providing the word. Much of content is suggested, subject to verification, but delivered as though the final word. Interpretation must be considered. If several persons (eye witnesses) recall the same incident, it is rare that there is identical sameness to the subject matter. Mr Zuckerman is a brilliant man but he
    is of the Elite who believes in Globalism, of which their goal is to provide as much propaganda and
    dissonance as fits their plans. And the power of Facebook, Twitter, and other organs of millions of
    members is a massive powerful communications networking of the Internet, of which we should
    be thankful for. There is freedom in the Internet.

  • Gardentoolnumber5

    I only use Facebook to share freedom, limited constitutional government information. All the fake stuff they are trying to curtail. Zuckerberg is a big govt collectivist and using his site for posting limited govt information is a poke in the eye of both.

  • There *IS* a good alternative to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and the other centralized, privately owned and controlled social networks!

    The Diaspora social network is constructed of a network of nodes, or pods, hosted by many different individuals and institutions. Each node operates a copy of the Diaspora software acting as a personal web server. Users of the network can host a pod on their own server or create an account on any existing pod of their choice, and from that pod can interact with other users on all other pods.

    Diaspora users retain ownership of their data and do not assign ownership rights. The software is specifically designed to allow users to download all their images and text that has been uploaded at any time.

    (Diaspora looks similar to Google + because Google copied the open source software from Diaspora and removed the decentralized node code.)

      Good info, but success will always devolve into abuse, as long as there exist abusers.

      • Thanks for the up-vote, but it looks like your Deterministic outlook dooms you to perpetual Facebook/Twitter/etc. abuse.

        • autonomous

          I admit to being deterministic; cause and effect are widely accepted. But I hope my doom is not so determined. Facebook and Twitter are already deeply mined by the deep state. I will remain off them, although that in itself won’t guarantee safety. I learned long ago that safety is not one of the natural rights.

    • EDD

      I was unaware of this mode of communication. I have been very leery of other social media because of various concerns, mostly who controls the information storage. After looking at your links and doing some research within the diaspora sites, this may be a godsend for me. Thank you.

      One aspect of diqus that I like is the ability to research other people’s comments on various subjects. This leads to a greater understanding of the commentator’s mindset which I consider invaluable to writing more efficiently with less chance of being misinterpreted or taken out of context.

      • Smurfet

        My discus account is private after being attacked too many times.

  • autonomous

    I got off Facebook a while ago because Zuck was using peoples’ information to target ads to them, and I hate almost all advertisement. I wasn’t at the time I left FB aware that (f)Zuckface had sold out to the Nazis that think they own all of us. I suppose it’s quite natural to the power crazed to pollute anything that attracts vast numbers of us, after-all, socialism thrives on already aggregated societies. Flies always accompany sewage and garbage, which always is emitted by masses. The waste of a family is easily composted, that of a city, not so easily, especially when mis-managed by governmental bureaucrats. City life is really shitty life. Civilization is is anything but civil.

  • EDD

    The fake news agenda is already disintegrating before the words ‘fake news’ began to be brandied about. The Trump saga will be interesting to watch as it continues to progress. The selection of Bannon could not have been a better choice.

    Consider: as a proponent of alt.news, and as his selection by Trump, it is no stretch of the imagination thinking Bannon was feeding information to Trump throughout the campaign. I have witnessed small company managers as being avid readers of Breitbart News for several years. For some time now, CEO’s and other higher management personnel have known the msm is not to be trusted.

    Bannon has insisted all summer, (and probably even longer), that a Trump candidacy would result in an election. It was no surprise to me either, the prime indicators being the minuscule crowds of the Clinton campaign versus the huge drawing of Trump fans attending his appearances. This alone, however, was not enough to ensure a Trump victory. The ‘crooked Hillary’ theme could have been overused, so I don’t know how much this fed into the public’s perception other than what a lot of people already knew.

    I consider Trump’s gambit on the unfairness of msm coverage of events to be one of the most major successes of his campaign. There was many who had suspicions of their coverage as bogus, and pointing this out during the campaign only enhanced this perception. If any of the coverage can be classified as other than ‘fake news’, I fail to see any other conclusion. It was amazing to me to see the talking heads were aghast at the incoming results and their inability to explain Trump’s success.

    (Borrowing on DB’s ending statements to their articles); Conclusion: Trump has as one of his most astute personnel an individual who is alert to the msm AND the social media in their attempts to create false flags in conveying to the public the phenomena of ‘directed history’.

  • Note to The Daily Bell:

    Natural News maintains a node on Diaspora. If you are looking for a way to expand your coverage, consider doing something similar. (It would also make a good story about alternatives….)

  • MCosta

    As far as I’m concerned the propagandists themselves want to control all the “propaganda” being fed to the main stream. Isn’t this a Communist tactic? The only people I think they will reach are the one’s who are already under media mind control, I don’t believe the rest of us are going to listen to them.

    Suckerberg & Co. have reached peak zombie control.

    The Awakening has started.

    As long as common folk continue to push back against the centralized controls of The Ruling Class, the information war will continue to tilt in favor of those who seek independence.

    Do not be afraid of The Ruling Class. It is a paper tiger.
