From the yellow journalism of William Randolph Hearst to the modern CIA influenced presstitutes the mainstream media have been the number one purveyors of fake news for generations. Now that they’re losing their influence to alternative online news sources they’re crying foul! Waaaa! I wouldn’t mind if they were just being cry babies but they’re trying to censor everyone who isn’t them. The free exchange of opposing ideas is a bedrock principle of any truly free society. Spirited debate between opposing sides is healthy, in the hope that in the end the truth will out. Attempts by the government/media (yes, I conflate them)to silence dissent from opposing voices is an ignorant, closed minded first step into tyranny. I find it humorous that today’s SJW’s are encouraging the tyranny they claim to abhor!

Here is an interview with a German journalist who was co-opted by the CIA:
Here you’ll see that the United States very recently passed the “Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of 2016”. Soon we’ll have our own “Ministry of Truth!” See here: http://theantimedia.org/bill-congress-ministry-of-truth/
Last but not least, if you don’t think that the media is all literally reading from the same script then you must watch this:
For those of you that will cry that you can’t trust everything you read on alternative online news sites either, I have an answer for you. That’s why God gave you a brain…
