Τὰ κυρίαρχα «Μέσα Ἐνημερώσεως» εἶπαν ψέμματα:
- Γιὰ τὸ ἐπεισόδιο στὸν Κόλπο Τονκίν, ὡστὲ νὰ ξεκινήσῃ ὁ πόλεμος στὸ Βιετνάμ.
- Γιὰ ἐγκλήματα πολέμου τοῦ Ἰράκ, ὡστὲ νὰ ξεκινήσῃ ὁ Α΄ Ἰρακινὸς Πόλεμος.
- Γιὰ τὰ ὅπλα μαζικῆς καταστροφῆς τοῦ Ἰράκ, γιὰ νὰ ξεκινήσῃ ὁ Β΄ Ἰρακινὸς Πόλεμος.
- Γιὰ ἐγκλήματα πολέμου στὴν Λιβύη, ὡστὲ νὰ ξεκινήσῃ ἡ ἀνατροπὴ τοῦ Καντάφι…
…ἀλλά, σὲ παρακαλῶ… Πές μου περισσότερα σχετικὰ μὲ τὸ πόσο ἐπικίνδυνες εἶναι οἱ «ψεύτικες εἰδήσεις» στὸ διαδίκτυο!!!
Φυσικὰ εἶπαν ἐπίσης ψέμματα:
- Γιὰ ἐγκλήματα πολέμου στὴν Γιουγκοσλαυΐα, ὡστὲ νὰ ὁλοκληρωθῇ ἡ διάλυσίς της.
- Γιὰ «δικτατορίες» στὴν Οὐκρανία καὶ στὴν Συρία, ὡστὲ νὰ τὶς διαμελίσουν ἀνενόχλητοι…
Ἀλλά κῦττα ξαφνικὴ καψούρα μὲ τὴν «ἀλήθεια» ποὺ τοὺς ἔπιασε ῥέ!!!
Ὅταν οἱ ψεύτικες εἰδήσεις ἔβγαιναν ἀπὸ τὰ κυρίαρχα Μ.Μ.Ε. δὲν τοῦς ἐκαίγετο καρφί.
Μέχρι πολέμους σιγοντάρησαν μὲ ψεύτικες εἰδήσεις…
Τώρα ὅμως τοὺς ἔπιασε πρεμούρα ποὺ χάνουν τὸν ἔλεγχο τῆς «ἐνημερώσεως» τῶν προβάτων, ἀπὸ ἀνεξάρτητες καὶ μὴ ἐλεγχόμενες πηγές.
Μὲ 500.000 εὐρῶ πρόστιμο ἀπὸ τὴν Γερμανία, γιὰ κάθε ψεύτικη εἴδηση, ποὺ δὲν διαγράφεται ἄμεσα (ἐντὸς 24 ὡρῶν), ἀπειλεῖται τὸ facebook..
Precedent Set — Germany to Fine Facebook $500K for Every ‘Fake News’ Post they Don’t Delete
Germany now says if Facebook refuses to deal with “fake news” in a timely manner, it will fine the social media platform €500,000 (around $525,000) for each false or hate speech item it fails to remove within 24 hours.
Thomas Oppermann, chairman of Germany’s Social Democratic Party, suggests a strict law with concurrent stiff penalty might be the best method of combating the plethora of “fake news” now apparently flooding the interwebs.
“Facebook did not avail itself of the opportunity to regulate the issue of complaint management itself,” Oppermann told Der Spiegel in an interview Friday. “Now market dominating platforms like Facebook will be legally required to build a legal protection office in Germany that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”
According to Deutsche Welle, this would allow putative ‘victims’ of fake news or hate speech to contact Facebook and request action be taken.
“If, after appropriate examination, Facebook does not delete the offending message within 24 hours,” Oppermann continued, “it should expect individual fines of up to 500,000 euros ($523,320).”
Germany’s announcement comes on the heels of Facebook’s formally announcing its newest plan to deal with the same “fake news” issue — the company will partner with adamantly left-leaning organizations Snopes, Politifact, FactCheck.org, the Associated Press, and ABC News to vet and label items “disputed.” Corporate media largely lauded that announcement, ignoring entirely the distinct potentiality for the effort to amount to blatant censorship of all ideas not in lock step with the neoliberal establishment.
All of this, despite Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg declaring shortly after the U.S. presidential election,
“Of all the content on Facebook, more than 99 percent of what people see is authentic. Only a very small amount is fake news and hoaxes. The hoaxes that do exist are not limited to one partisan view, or even to politics. Overall, this makes it extremely unlikely hoaxes changed the outcome of this election in one direction or the other.”
Zuckerberg and Facebook quickly changed their tune when it became clear the Democrat establishment wished to target alternative, independent, and right-leaning media organizations to shoulder the blame of its own shortcomings in the election of Donald Trump to the presidency.
While corporate media presstitutes praised fealty to Hillary Clinton, alternative outlets reported on the contents of documents leaked to Wikileaks concerning the former secretary of state — including collusion by those same ‘reporters’ with Clinton’s campaign.
Indeed, though analysts first decried the idea ‘fake news’ or misinformation swayed the election in favor of Donald Trump, hysteria amongst Clintonites and NeverTrump Republicans spread like wildfire online as the volatile situation in the United States threatened to explode into outright conflict. Now, a growing number of Electoral College electors from both sides of the aisle have declared they will not vote — or cast their votes for Trump — until an investigation into Russian election interference can be performed.
Russian hackers and pro-Russia propaganda constitutes the twin, parallel ‘problem’ having befallen the U.S. — unnamed officials in the CIA ostensibly found after an analysis that Russian actors hacked Democrat Party files and provided information to Wikileaks — but provided literally zero evidence to back up the slanderous claim.
Russian President Vladimir Putin — recently himself named by President Obama for involvement in the unproven hacks — has categorically denied Russia meddled in the election or hacked the DNC. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, Judge Andrew Napolitano, and former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray have all — among many others — come forward to denounce the idea of Russian hackers as absurd and baseless.
“Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange told Sean Hannity in an interview, in which the Wikileaks founder discussed the inanity of claims Russia had influenced the U.S. election.
Assange elaborated that although his organization prefers to proffer no qualifying details about individuals who provide documents, he felt obligated to set the record straight in this case, so “we’ve had to come out and say, ‘no, it’s not a State party, stop trying to distract in that way, and pay attention to the content of the publications.”
“So, in other words, when you say State party, it wasn’t another State — like Russia, or some other country?” Hannity asked.
“Correct,” Assange replied.
