Can the Public Be Trusted With Their Own Voice?

(Before It's News)

BIN NOTE: If by now you haven’t figured out that Facebook and Google are in cahoots with the corrupt government, then I feel for you, but for those who are well aware of the issues it’s high time you switched over to Seen.life. It is a website that is similar to Facebook but without all the censorship.

For the first several decades of my life, almost all of the news received by the public came either from newspapers, the radio, or one of 2-or-3 Major Network television news stations. Nobody questioned the news back then, and the media was a faithful watchdog on our Halls of Power within the Beltway.

This recently past election cycle, all that changed in significant ways. One major party candidate for president decided to circumvent the usual avenues of public exposure, going around, over and under the usual news organs to speak directly to the American People using Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, etc. Suddenly The Press had no control over the conversation. Of considerably more concern, our Fourth Estate, the vaunted, once-honorable “Press” became a “Fifth Column” element of subversion, throwing journalistic ethics and centuries of accepted norms of reportage out the window in favor of openly advocating for one candidate over the other.

A New Problem

For icing on this turd cake, a hue and cry now rises from the Media for new measures to ensure that “fake news reports” cease to plague our social media platforms.

Right. Our clever and well-intended leaders have decided that people posting “fake news” on social media is a threat to our Republic. Meanwhile, we ignore the fact that nearly all our lap dog news organs spent the past year aggressively sowing so many false DNC narratives that it was hard to keep up with them all; “Trump is way behind Clinton…” “Trump is a joke…” “Trump is a xenophobe…” “Trump hates women…” “Trump just cannot win…” “Trump hates Mexicans/Muslims/Asians/Blacks…” “Trump has no path to 270…” etc., etc, etc.

Pretty discouraging for Team Trump, huh? If only these weren’t all lies…

We’re supposed to get all hair balled up over ordinary people tweeting and posting things that may be false, but the Major News outlets whom we trust for accurate and fairly reported information are allowed to spin, advocate and directly lie. Yet not a single word is mentioned about reining-in this run-amok bastard of blatant hypocrisy.

A New Solution

How about not hectoring Joe Blow about his Facebook opinions? Instead, let’s make certain that the professional, paid reporters stop screwing over conservative America with their RICO-conspired, DNC-lie-slanted Pravda-esqe propagandizing. That would seem a much more logical and effective place to start.

The coastal cognoscenti and Hollyweird glitterati, the D.C. denizens and Big Apple Media mavens would do well to learn something from all of this. We, the people are no longer your puppets to jerk around. We are on to you. You do not fool us, and you no longer control us. You would do well to fear us!  For without us, you cease to exist.

You in the media would do well to constrain your worst selves in order to continue to be allowed the special privileges and protections that will henceforth be offered to only those News outlets which will openly acknowledge, recognize, and honor, all that this sacred public contract implies. The world is changing rapidly. Many will get left behind. Your fate is in your wretched hands. What is not yours to control any longer is our Voice.

We will decide if and when and how to use that. You might have noticed that this was already the case… if you had simply bothered to look. Don’t waste your time and ours fretting that some individuals may post inaccurate facts or unpleasant opinions on social media. That’s Free Speech, and you all better pray we keep it. For once it is gone, so are all of you.

Can you hear me now?

    isn’t fake news also free speech? so technically that can’t be banned.

    What is needed is better fact checking and some kind of system of certification. Cause even on BIN a fect seems to be a link that links directly to the same author with a different article.
