They’re Censoring Vegas Shooting News! ‘The Ministry Of Truth’
They’re Censoring Vegas Shooting News! ‘The Ministry Of Truth’ AKA Tech Giants, Hide Differing Views To Control The Information And Manipulate The Masses by Susan Duclos – All News Pipeline
YouTube is removing videos and Facebook is blocking people from sharing, and in one case that I know of so far, actually banning people from sharing any news on the Las Vegas shooting that doesn’t toe the line and spew only the “official story. They are doing this under the guise of protecting the masses from “fake news.”
CHAOS OF REPORTING & LIBERAL MSM DOUBLE STANDARDS
Having done many live update articles about events that were ongoing, I can personally vouch for the fact that during the event in question, information is reported, corrected, edited and updated, with a note at the bottom usually saying corrections and edits are being made as new information becomes available…….. that is what I call the chaos of reporting during a live event.
Mistakes happen, not just to Independent Media, but some very high profile MSM personalities have incorrectly named suspects in initial reporting, just to have to issue corrections later.
A perfect example of this was the Boston Marathon bombing, where multiple MSM reporters, including Ross Neumann from Reuters, Vice and Digg, former Politico reporter, and now Senior reporter for CNN, Dylan Byers, all misidentified one of the bombing suspects. Another example is when The Daily Beast misidentified one of the San Bernardino shooting suspects.
No one accused these folks of deliberately publishing or sharing “disinformation,” because it falls under the category of “stuff happens,” during the chaos of reporting an ongoing event. Media outlets excuse these mistakes, offer corrections, and move on.
In the case of the Vegas shooter this past week, an Independent News site misidentified the shooter, inaccurately naming GearyDanley, who was the ex-husband of Marilou Danley, the woman that lived with the actual shooter Stephen Paddock, and all of a sudden what is considered chaos of reporting, and a mistake in the cases mentioned above when a MSM reporter or outlet does it, the left is screaming it was deliberate “disinformation,” and “Fake News.”
In the case of the Boston Bombing suspect, media outlets instantly highlighted that the MSM got the suspects name wrong because of some Reddit user, and in the case of the recent mistake by Gateway Pundit, they are accusing them of deliberately spreading fake news because of a theory posed on 4chan.
The only difference between the MSM misidentifying previous suspects and when Gateway Pundit did so, is the left and media outlets instantly blamed Reddit for “smearing” and innocent man when the MSM inaccurately reported, but in the case of the Vegas shooting they are blaming GP and calling it “fake news,” while accusing Facebook, Google and other platforms of allowing fake news to show up in their feeds.
No one said a word about that back in 2013 when the wrong person’s name was shared all over social media as a suspect for the Boston Bombing, or when The Daily Beast story named the wrong suspect in the San Bernardino shooting, but let an Independent Media site make the same innocent mistake and it is all of a sudden the crime of a century and demands for online censorship are blared in every headline.
Nice double standard there, eh?
FAKE NEWS VERSUS DIFFERING VIEWPOINTS
Facebook, Google and its video platform YouTube is now trying to appease the liberal media and leftists across the internet, while implementing measures to make them the “ministry of truth,” by tweaking their algorithms to remove what they determine is “fake news,” and in the process, under the guise of removing disinformation, they are also removing differing viewpoints if those views don’t align with the “official narrative,” being pushed by “authoritative sources.”
YouTube this week surfaced videos peddling misinformation, hateful messages and conspiracy theories to users searching about mainstream news events — problems that caused the site to change its search results to promote more authoritative sources.
For example, the fifth result when searching “Las Vegas shooting” on YouTube late Tuesday yielded a video titled “Proof Las Vegas Shooting Was a FALSE FLAG attack — Shooter on 4th Floor.” The video said there were multiple shooters in Sunday’s mass shooting, a claim refuted by law enforcement. Posted by a channel called the End Times News Report, it had amassed more than 1.1 million views in about 27 hours.
