2018 will be remembered as the year of tech censorship: Only delusional liberals still try to deny the attacks on free speech

Like previous years, 2018 will be remembered for a great many things, but one of them that isn’t likely to get much mention by the Leftist ‘mainstream’ media is that it was a year of big tech censorship.

CNN Hack Wants to Censor Trump’s Press Conferences

Happy De-Platforming: Truth Is The New 'Hate-Speech'

Most of you know that the organs (as Solzhenitsyn might have styled them) are using their effective monopoly control over all modern forms of communication – the Internet, social media – to stifle information and opinion that isn’t orthodox.

For a brief decade or so, the Internet really was free. It enabled contrarian viewpoints to end-run what had been the information lockdown of pre-Internet media outlets – i.e., the major TV networks, of which there were just three; the major print media, of which there were also basically just three – The New York Times, Washington Post and LA Times – all of them run by the ideologically simpatico.

Five Weeks After The Guardian’s Viral Blockbuster Assange-Manafort Scoop, No Evidence Has Emerged — Just Stonewalling

From the start, the massive holes in The Guardian’s blockbuster were glaring. As I noted on the day the story published, analysts from across the political spectrum — including those quite hostile to Assange — expressed serious doubts about the article’s sourcing, internal logic, self-evidently dubious assertions, and overall veracity, even as many media figures uncritically trumpeted it.

In particular:

How could it be that Manafort, of all people, snuck into one of the most monitored, surveilled, videoed, and photographed buildings on the planet on three separate occasions without any of that ostensibly “smoking gun” visual evidence having emerged, including in The Guardian’s own story?

Why would The Guardian publish a story of this magnitude without first requiring that its Ecuadoran intelligence sources provide them with such photographic or video evidence to publish it or at least review prior to publication?

Reporter Quits NBC Citing Network’s Support For Endless War

A journalist with NBC has resigned from the network with a statement which highlights the immense resistance that ostensibly liberal mass media outlets have to antiwar narratives, skepticism of US military agendas, and any movement in the opposite direction of endless military expansionism.

“January 4 is my last day at NBC News and I’d like to say goodbye to my friends, hopefully not for good,” begins an email titled ‘My goodbye letter to NBC’ sent to various contacts by William M Arkin, an award-winning journalist who has been associated with the network for 30 years.

REPOST: The Biggest Secret - My Life as a New York Times Reporter in the Shadow of the War on Terror

One year ago: Former New York Times national security reporter James Risen reveals how the paper repeatedly suppressed stories at the request of the Obama and Bush administrations

I was sitting in the nearly empty restaurant of the Westin Hotel in Alexandria, Virginia, getting ready for a showdown with the federal government that I had been trying to avoid for more than seven years. The Obama administration was demanding that I reveal the confidential sources I had relied on for a chapter about a botched CIA operation in my 2006 book, "State of War." I had also written about the CIA operation for the New York Times, but the paper’s editors had suppressed the story at the government’s request. It wasn’t the only time they had done so.

Smugglers are using Facebook groups called 'immigration to Britain' to lure migrants illegally into the UK on overcrowded boats for £10,000

Smugglers are brazenly using Facebook to offer migrants illegal routes to the UK for up to £10,000, it emerged yesterday.

The traffickers boast how they can help people from Africa and Asia reach Western Europe without being caught.

The Daily Mail found a range of illegal activity on Facebook – just hours after the tech giant said it had improved its security measures.

Facebook Pres. admits social media not for connection, but distraction by dopamine hits

In the modern world, you are the commodity and your attention is a form of currency. What we give our attention to is what we give ourselves to. To give our time away is also to give our Essence away. What government today wouldn’t love the information on its citizens available to them through phones, computers and social media? No need to hire torturers anymore! We lay our cards on the table, our hearts on our sleeves, and our personality quiz answers for everyone to see. No more intimacy or real connection – just wham-bam social nudity and pseudo relationships.

Outrage after Netflix pulls comedy show criticising Saudi Arabia

Netflix has taken down an episode of a satirical comedy show critical of Saudi Arabia in the country after officials from the kingdom complained, sparking criticism from Human Rights Watch, which said the act undermined the streaming service’s “claim to support artistic freedom”.

It comes three months after the brutal killing of the Saudi dissident and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi – which US senators have blamed on the Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman – and as the war in Yemen continues to devastate the country.

The American comedian Hasan Minhaj was critical of the Saudi heir in an episode of the standup show Patriot Act, delivering a wide-ranging monologue mocking the Saudis’ evolving account of what happened inside the country’s consulate in Istanbul in October, when the journalist was killed.

However, another individual at the heart of this matter is far less familiar to the public. That man is Fernando Villavicencio, a prominent Ecuadorian political activist and journalist, director of the USAID-funded NGO Fundamedios and editor of online publication FocusEcuador.

Fake News & Feminism - MGTOW

I'm going to take this opportunity to discuss what happened a while back when Hilary Clinton made the following statements about the so called fake news. I'm sure everyone has heard the argument from the mainstream media by now that mainstream news outlets called the presidential election for Hilary Clinton and were probably hoping that if they said it enough times then this would provide enough social proof for voters to go out there and vote for Hilary. By the way her presidential campaign cost over one billion dollars. When she lost she was throwing furniture around the room on election and getting violent with people. But when she finally calmed down she brought up the issue of fake news at a speech for Harry Reid's retirement party mentioning that the US government and Silicon Valley were going to team up and start to punish fake news sites.

Top 10 FAKE NEWS liberal media stories of 2018 designed to keep the “sheeple” brainwashed and voting for more Democratic-Socialistic-Communistic abuse

Mainstream news is fake news, through and through. Nearly every story is twisted or straight up made up and fabricated out of thin air, all to support diabolical narratives that keep their clones highly emotional, frustrated, and distracted from anything and everything that really matters in this world. -- Even when the major networks, newspapers and websites get caught red-handed fabricating stories, embellishing, and horribly exaggerating, they never admit it, apologize, or outright walk-it-back. All they do is publish some tiny blurb in some obscure spot about a “misprint,” or they simply just claim their source may have misinterpreted something somehow somewhere (imagine that). The total tell-tale sign of fake news rears its ugly head anytime they claim that the source or sources are “anonymous.”

BBC office fails to confirm data from its own publication - Russian diplomat

The British broadcaster BBC’s Moscow office has once again failed to confirm that it filed a complaint with the Russian foreign ministry following publication of the list of its 44 employees, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Sunday.

"On Sunday morning, we contacted the BBC office where we ran into a very strange situation because the office said it could not confirm data from its own publication. We asked to tell us when the complaint was lodged and by whom to, at least, figure out what the whole thing was about. As a result, correspondents from the office, or, to be more precise, not correspondents but office employees, were unable to say when and where the complaint was filed," she said in an interview with the Ekho Moskvy radio station.

According to the Russian diplomat, the office’s employees only "passed the buck to London saying that the entire information originates from there." What is now going on there is paradox and absurd, she stressed.

Two More Spiegel Employees Out After Fake News Scandal Expands

Two senior editors at Germany's Der Spiegel have been fired amid the country's largest newsroom scandal in decades.

Ullrich Fichtner, and editor-in-chief, and Matthias Geyer, a chief editor, have been "suspended until the (magazine's) internal commission has completed its investigation into the affair," according to editor-in-chief Steffen Klusmann, according to AFP, citing a copy of an internal letter obtained on Friday.

"Superstar" journalist Claas Relotius, a 33-year-old reporter for Der Spiegel and several other publications, falsified at least 14 articles according to Klusmann. Relotius abruptly resigned amid the December 19 announcement by Der Spiegel.

"The Relotius affair raises the question as to whether" Ullrich and Fichtner "can continue in their jobs after such a disaster," said Klusmann. "The first discovered it for Der Spiegel, the second hired him and was until recently his superior."

Outrage After Swedish TV Downplays Gruesome ISIS Beheadings, Threatens Prison For Sharing Video

Swedish state broadcaster SVT has outraged viewers after they ran an article claiming that the gruesome ISIS-inspired murder of two Scandinavian girls in Morocco "had nothing to do with Islam," before warning Swedes that sharing a graphic beheading video of the incident could result in up to four years of imprisonment.

Maren Ueland, 28, of Norway and Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, of Denmark were murdered while backpacking in the High Atlas mountains of Morocco. Both girls were stabbed multiple times, while one of them was beheaded on video. The culprits can then be seen pledging allegiance to the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.

The ISIS fanatics gloated about the killing - while images of the killing were posted to the Facebook page of Ueland's mother, and the video was sent via Private Message to Ms. Jesperson's friends, according to the Daily Mail.

FRONTPAGE MAGAZINE'S PERSON OF THE YEAR: SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS

The struggle for the future of this country is being fought in the hearts and minds of its citizens. The media is the enemy and Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the warrior who takes them on day after day.

The huge media sector easily outnumbers the Ouachita Baptist University grad taking them on.

CNN alone has 4,000 employees. The New York Times has nearly as many. And when she singlehandedly faces off against 49 people in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room and the less than 30 people on her staff take on a mainstream media machine of tens of thousands, it’s a true underdog story.

For a year and a half, Sanders has been reporting for duty as the White House Press Secretary. She’s been shouted at, called names, had her appearance demeaned, and was kicked out of a restaurant. Mainstream media White House correspondents, invariably male, try to talk over her and shout her down. But she’s been so effective that there have been calls by the media to boycott her press briefings.

Google Erases Map of Kurdistan After Turkey Complains of ‘Terrorist Propaganda’

Kurdish news agencies report on Friday that a map of greater Kurdistan – featuring territory belonging to Turkey, Iran, Iraq, and Syria – no longer appears on Google Earth, replaced by a message stating that the map violated “our Terms of Service and/or policies.”

The map, which appeared to be user-generated and not a recognition of a sovereign state of “Kurdistan,” became the focal point of controversy this week after several Turkish lawmakers complained that the map was “at the service of terrorist organizations” by recognizing the existence of a territory where ethnic Kurds are the majority.

Cohen Prague Claim Crumbles As McClatchy Reporter Admits To Third-Hand Information

A Thursday report claiming that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen was in Prague during the 2016 US election has begun to unravel after one of its authors admitted it was based on third-hand information which nobody affiliated with the report had seen, according to the Daily Caller's Chuck Ross.

In a Thursday evening interview, McClatchy's Greg Gordon revealed that he and his colleague, Peter Stone, had not actually seen the underlying evidence that a phone traced to Cohen "briefly sent signals ricocheting off cell towers in the Prague area in late summer 2016," a report which echoed their April claim that special counsel Robert Mueller had evidence of Cohen's trip - which, according to the controversial "Steele Dossier" was to meet with Kremlin insiders to arrange payments to Russian hackers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So again, we are dealing with absolutely zero tangible evidence, that Cohen was in Prague?!?

Folks, this, again, is the Dementocrat's desperation on the cusp of madness!!

RUSSIA COMPLETES CRIMEA SECURITY FENCE

Russia has finished building a high-tech security fence along annexed Crimea's border with mainland Ukraine.

The fence, more than 60km (37 miles) long, is topped with barbed wire and has hundreds of sensors.

Russian forces annexed Ukraine's Crimea peninsula in March 2014 - a move condemned internationally. Crimea has a Russian-speaking majority.

Russia's FSB security agency says the fence is necessary to prevent "infiltration attempts by saboteurs".

An FSB statement, quoted by Russia's RIA Novosti news agency, said the fence would also thwart smugglers trading in illegal weapons, drugs, alcohol and other contraband.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The BBC has gone from delivering excellence in journalism to consistently belching its putrid, foul codswallop upon the minds of its readers, constantly capitulating to the British and US government war-centric agenda over the truth, and thinking this will absolutely be received by their readers as reliable, gospel, solid-fact.

I would politely suggest that this might have been the case in the past, but is not the case at this point in the 21st century, because citizens of the UK and US are both war-weary, war-skeptical, and looking to independent resources (like WRH) to actually get the real news.

The current agenda is always sabre rattling, and the lies remain the same.

First, BBC, you lie when you use the word "annexed" in reference to Crimea; this never, ever happened.

And please note; no one at BBC, not even the night janitor, wanted to put their names to this ridiculous tale. So, in light of the fact that whoever put this up has a very severe case of SMD (Selective Memory Disorder), I will be happy to, once again, break this down for them, in small words, that even THEY can understand.

Let's set the "way-back" machine to 2014. This was the spring, which saw Yanukovich, the legitimately elected president of Ukraine, get thrown under the proverbial bus, and Poroshenko was "anointed" to replace him, as he was thought to be more "pro-western" than was Yanukovich. This election was more crooked than is a dog's hind leg, with massive vote fraud going on.

Facebook post: United States spent 5 billion on regime change in Ukraine

And no less an American icon than President Obama, himself confessed that the US had brokered a deal to effect "regime change" in Ukraine.

President Obama admits that the US brokered a deal in Support of Regime Change in Ukraine

President Obama admits US brokered a deal for regime change in Ukraine

You see, writers of this atrocious piece of tripe; I've got documentation on my side; you have absolutely no game, whatsoever.
The Crimeans knew that after this putsch, there was no legitimate representation in Kiev, so here is precisely want they did, in a fair, and transparent two-part referendum.

First, the Crimean people were asked, post putsch, if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or ask the Russian federation to accept Crimea as a member.

Then, the Crimean people requested to become part of the Russian Federation, and Russia accepted the petition.

Crimea votes overwhelmingly to ask the Russian Federation to Join it

You see, BBC, I can back up what I say with facts; and the fact is, there was no annexation of Crimea by Russia; zero, zip, none.

Your use of the word "annexation" is a fact-free description of what happened here, as a means to demonizing Russia for what it did not do.

And we all know that demonization of a country, for what it absolutely did not do, and supporting that demonization through sanctions, again, for what it absolutely did not do, are generally a prelude to some kind of shooting war.

And I find it nearly hysterically funny (if it weren't for the oncoming war part), that you are, again, blissfully unaware of the UN Charter, to which, I believe, the UK is still a signatory)which states unequivocally, that all people are allowed the right of peaceful self-determination, which is precisely what Crimea did in this case.

So BBC thinks it can go on lying to demonize Russia, with no repercussions, but I politely beg to differ.

I would strongly suggest that those still reading this rag, cloaked in its antique, tattered reputation for truth telling, will be fact-checking in other places, and will start to ignore what you say completely, a situation you have totally brought upon yourself.

RIP, BBC: your capacity to describe anything correctly has just been broken into smithereens, big-time, by this piece, and your credibility has become a world-wide joke.

WAG THE DOG… BRITISH MEDIA WATCHDOG ACCUSES RUSSIA OF BIAS

Irony is dead when British state media controllers accuse Russian news outlets RT and Sputnik of “imbalance” over their reporting on the Skripal alleged poisoning affair.

In the past week, Ofcom, the British media watchdog, condemned seven programs aired during March and April this year following the apparent poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal in Salisbury. The Russian outlets may be fined or denied future broadcasting rights in Britain. The latter suggests what the real, ulterior agenda is all about.

CBS EYES DITCHING NIELSEN AS STREAMING, CORD CUTTING CHANGE THE GAME

For years, we've noted how popular TV ratings firm Nielsen has turned a bit of a blind eye to cord cutting and the Internet video revolution, on one hand declaring that the idea of cord cutting was "pure fiction," while on the other hand admitting it wasn't actually bothering to track TV viewing on mobile devices. It's not surprising; Nielsen's bread and butter is paid for by traditional cable executives, and really, who wants to take the time to pull all those collective heads of out of the sand to inform them that their precious pay TV cash cow is dying?

Eventually, the cord cutting trend became too big to ignore, forcing Nielsen to change its tune and start acknowledging the very real trend (though they called it "zero TV households" instead of cordcutters).

One has to love the smell of irony in the morning.

CALIFORNIA TOWN OKS DESTRUCTION OF POLICE SHOOTING RECORDS DAYS BEFORE THEY COULD BE OBTAINED BY THE PUBLIC

California has long protected police officers from accountability. Most police misconduct records are impossible to obtain via public records requests. The restrictions covering these personnel files even prevent defense attorneys and prosecutors from accessing them, allowing cops with lousy track records for telling the truth present testimony as if they've never committed a misdeed or told a lie.

Faced with impending accountability, police departments are readying themselves for mass releases of previously withheld data. Oh, wait. The opposite of that.

‘The Thrust of this Article Is No Longer Correct’: NBC News Backs Down from Fake News Hit on Trump, Troops, Christmas

NBC News has finally, a full day after being called out for printing the fake news, admitted that its article published on Christmas alleging President Donald Trump snubbed the troops during the holidays this year is incorrect.
NBC has altered its headline and story, changing their meaning to remove the original anti-Trump thrust, and added an extended editor’s note beyond the original editor’s note appended when it was first discovered to be an inaccurate piece. The new editor’s note admits in no uncertain terms that NBC News printed fake news, and that it was only leaving the article up in the interest of transparency despite the fact that “the thrust of this article is no longer correct” according to NBC News’s own editors.

Haaretz and Israel Join the Phony Russian Meddling Crowd

When repeated enough, Big Lies take on a life of their own. The whopper about Russian US election meddling was discredited long ago.

In legitimate tribunals, charges without credible evidence are rejected. Guilt depends on proof beyond a reasonable doubt – the gold standard in criminal prosecutions.

Innocence is presumed unless proved otherwise by hard facts. None exist suggesting Russian US election meddling – or anywhere else.

Phony accusations crumbled. Yet they persist, part of US-sponsored Russia bashing. Israel and Haaretz shamed themselves by spreading the Big Lie.

Former Mossad head Tamir Pardo falsely claimed Moscow used a virtual army of bots to influence the outcome of America’s 2016 presidential election.

He lied. Instead of ignoring or debunking him, Haaretz went with the fabricated claim by publishing it, proliferating the Big Lie, operating as unacceptably as US major media, saying:

Names of BBC journalists in Russia made public after Sunday Times doxxed & shamed Sputnik staff

A list of BBC reporters and other personnel working in Russia has been published online, after Britain’s Sunday Times newspaper published a “name and shame” hit piece about Sputnik agency employees in the UK.

The list featuring 44 names of BBC employees and their pictures first appeared on a public group page on the Russian social network Vkontakte – a sort of Russian version of Facebook – and in one of the posts on Pikabu, which is similar to Reddit.

It was apparently then published by a news website Segodnia.ru. The list includes correspondents, TV reporters, producers and camera operators, with pictures seemingly taken from their social media profiles or from other open sources.

Most-Watched Television Networks: Ranking 2018’s Winners and Losers

A few years ago, the joke among network TV execs was that “flat is the new up” — meaning that you could tout victory if your network had managed to at least hold steady and not lose more viewers.

Those were innocent times. Now, with so many channels slipping year-to-year by double digits, perhaps “single digit declines are the new up” should now be the industry mantra. In 2018, TV strategists who are used to erosion were nonetheless stunned by how quickly younger viewers are disappearing from linear TV. “We’re seeing real accelerated declines in live viewing,” one research exec told IndieWire. “People are changing their behavior. Maybe people are watching more efficiently.” Nielsen doesn’t report on the people watching video on mobile phones, iPads and laptops, but there’s a sense that viewers are using different platforms to time shift their viewing, the way they used to use DVRs.

Trump Is Helping the Saudis Starve Yemen

In The Imperial Presidency, the historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. warned that the habit of “indiscriminate global intervention, far from strengthening American security, seemed rather to weaken it by involving the United States in remote, costly and mysterious wars, fought in ways that shamed the nation before the world and, even when thus fought, demonstrating only the inability of the most powerful nation on earth to subdue bands of guerrillas in black pajamas. When the grandiose policy did not promote national security and could not succeed in its own terms, would it not be better to pursue policies that did not deform and disable the Constitution?”

These many years later, America is complicit in a mysterious war in Yemen that is waged by Saudi Arabia in ways that shame both of our allied nations. These famine-ravaged youngsters are what that war looks like. As Nicholas Kristof aptly put it, “Your tax dollars help starve children.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am getting just a little sick to my stomach, reading that last paragraph; I did not know (but am not at all surprised) that President Trump had a number of business deals with the Saudis before he came into office.

Mr. President, as long as I am breathing, I am compelled, as a Christian pacifist activist who never commends violence, to call you out on the US military assisting the Saudi Government in war crimes. And I am about to post some images the presstitutes in corporate media don't dare (warning: very graphic), and not a one of them has been photoshopped or altered in any way.

The Saudis are slaughtering innocent children, women, and the medically infirm.

Images:
Yemeni children shot and killed or maimed for life by Saudi air raids

Yemen ports have been successfully blockaded by Saudi and American troops, so no desperately needed food can reach those now dying of malnutrition
Images: Yemeni children dying from malnutrition, because Saudi/US forces have blockaded Yemeni harbors, so food cannot get in.

Cholera (possibly weaponised) rages, unchecked in Yemen, as the water infrastructure has been successfully destroyed by the Saudi military.

Mr. President; I must ask this question: I know US weapons manufacturers are selling American bombs to the Saudis, and making incredible profits from this, but at what moral cost to this nation?!?

I was hoping in 2016 that the next President this country elected, would not sign off on more war crimes, as did your predecessors Bush and Obama, starting with Afghanistan; Iraq; Libya; Yemen; and Syria, did; it very much pains me to say it, but sir, in your haste to make sure American weapons manufacturers could profit brilliantly from wars in places like Yemen, you have placed an indelible, moral crimson stain over this entire country's future which can never be cleansed.

And as you are caterwauling over your "great success" in having American ambassadors push their host countries into "buying American" when it comes to weaponry, I hope you can sleep without seeing those images of the dead, the dying,and the maimed for life, which I have attached above; because Mr. President, I cannot sleep because of this, nor can many of the good moral people who elected you, understanding very clearly, that these weapons are causing the deaths of so many innocents.

And I have a companion piece I would like to share:

Saudis leave American fingerprints on Yemen carnage.
