It wasn’t long ago that op-eds were to be taken as opinions. Today, if you disagree with the brainwashed consensus thinking controlled by mainstream media, Big Pharma and the Deep State, you are met with resistance by social justice warriors disguised as fact-checkers.
According to these new guardians of the truth, most of whom are literally funded by either Bill Gates or George Soros, you can’t opine on any topic unless your views happen to be shared by so-called “trusted sources” such as CNN and MSNBC.
Can someone explain how left-wing sources are truthful, while conservative outlets spread lies or conspiracies? Fact check this: CNN lost nearly 50% of its primetime viewers between November 2020 and January 2021. The people are switching off in their droves and for good reason. CNN has been at the forefront of pushing the elite’s agenda and has become the least trusted name in news.
But according to fact-checkers, you are not allowed to say anything that counters CNN’s disreputable narrative. If you dare to question the establishment narrative you will be shadow-banned or silenced.
Many people take it for granted that these fact checkers are the quintessence of neutrality and unbiased reporting. Well, judge for yourself.
According to Facebook, their fact checking program works with “third-party fact checking organizations that are signatories of Poynter’s International Fact Checking Code of Principles (IFCN)”.
Here’s an interesting fact about Poynter, the self-proclaimed “global leader in journalism”. They are funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Endowment for Democracy (which has financial links to the State Department), Ebay’s Omidyar Foundation, and Craig Newmark, the founder of Craigslist who donated millions to Poynter to create the fact checking program.
The way these conflicts of interest play out in reality is beyond biased. They don’t even pretend to be fair and balanced.
Craig Newmark was a Clinton campaign donor. As were George Soros and Bill Gates, both big time supporters of the Clinton Foundation as well as Biden’s election campaign fund. And another Poynter donor, Ebay founder Pierre Omidyar, was also a massive donor to both Clinton and Biden.
Danish journalist Iben Thranholm said she was shocked that such obviously partisan fact checkers would be allowed to control the narrative in the United States. “It gave me goosebumps to hear those names because they have actually a very strong political agenda. It’s like there are a lot of people who think that its dangerous not to be able to control the media, so to sort out what is supposedly the real news and the fake news is actually a way to control the narrative. So if you want to be in opposition to these political powers then you are going to be censored. Of course this is a kind of censorship.”
