In Private Meeting, Top Facebook Exec Threatened News Outlets That Do Not Coperate With Censorship Policy

facebook loaded gun

During a meeting held behind closed doors last week, top Facebook executive Campbell Brown, acording to several people who were present, warned news publishers that refusal to cooperate with the tech behemoth’s efforts to “revitalize journalism” (i.e. ensure nothing that does not concur with the leftist politics of CEO Mark Zuckerberg,) will leave media outlets dying “like in a hospice.”

Initially reported by The Australian under a headline which read Work With Facebook or Die: Zuckerberg,” the story prompted outraged responses which saw vthe social media giant insisting the comments were taken out of context, even though five individuals who attended the four-hour meeting agreed on what Brown had said. And to be honest, the words ‘dying like in a hospice’ leave little room for misinterpretation.

“Mark doesn’t care about publishers but is giving me a lot of leeway and concessions to make these changes,” Brown reportedly said, referring to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. “We will help you revitalize journalism… in a few years the reverse looks like I’ll be holding hands with your dying business like in a hospice.”

As The Guardian reported on Monday, Facebook, a company with a long track record for being economical with the truth, is “vehemently” denying the veracity of the comments as reported by The Australian, referring to its own transcript of the meeting. Facebook, however, has so far refused to release its transcript and tape record of the gathering. Enough said.

Brown’s warning about the dire prospects for news outlets that don’t get on board with a future in which corporate giants like Facebook are the arbiters of what is and isn’t trustworthy news comes as progressives are finally understanding that for all his left wing posturing Zuckerberg is far from liberal and are raising alarms that Facebook’s entrance into the world of journalism poses a major threat to non-corporate and non – conformist news publishers.

As Common Dreams confirmed in July, independents’ fears were somewhat justified when Facebook revealed its first slate of ‘government propaganda approved’ news segments as part of its Facebook Watch initiative.

While Facebook claims its initiative is part of an effort to combat “misinformation,” its first series of segments were dominated by such corporate outlets as Fox News and CNN.

In response to Brown’s reporting that Zuckerberg “doesn’t care about publishers,” Judd Legum, who writes the Popular Information newsletter, argued, “Anyone who does care about news needs to understand Facebook as a fundamental threat.”

“In addition to disputed quote, there are also Facebook’s actions, which are fully consistent with the quote,” Legum added.

“We desperately need to develop alternative delivery mechanisms to Facebook.”

As with certain corporations involved in internet search and advertising, computer operating systems and online retailing, all run as Facebook is, by members of the Silicon Valley Cunt’s Club, Facebook and Zuckerberg want it all and see no ethical reason why they shouldn’t use any means availabe to get it all.

On Tuesday, Apple revealed their newest phone. The new line was anticipated by Apple users and is another cult favorite. But many are rightly skeptical of the “FaceID” feature.

How Google Destroyed the Internet
The idea of the internet was that it would be a communications tool that freed information by making all public domain documents, libraries and archives accessible for everyone. Unfortunately the corporate monopoly men of Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and Facebook and political control freaks had other ideas. They also understood the technolgy while the hippies and liberals ignored professionals warnings that internet systems would become a perfect toool of censorship.

UKIP Call to ‘Defend Free Speech’ Against ‘Globalist Elite’ After Social Media Purges

We reported last week that Britain’s most undemocratic and authoritarian Prime minister to date, Theresa May, was planning to set up a committee of MPs and government officials to monitor and advise on shutting down ‘fake news’ internet sites. They would use a definition of fake news that embraced satire, parody and comedy.

The UK Independence Party (UKIP), currently enjoying a resurgence in polls as support for both government and officials weakens, has urged UK citizens to defend free speech in the West after big tech firms are rumoured to have collaborated with governments to remove non – conformist websites, including InfoWars and Tommy Robinson, from social media.

On Monday, Apple, Facebook, Pinterest, Spotify, and Google-owned YouTube removed content from InfoWars and its owner Alex Jones, saying he and the website violated their policies against hate speech and harassment.

Supporters of the ban say Mr Jones is a conspiracy theorist (he is,) who deserves to be silenced (he doesn’t), while critics have claimed the purge is an attempt to interfere in the U.S. midterm elections and described it as a form of “political censorship”. It is a move that is likely to backfire as Trump is gaining in popularity ahead of the US mid term elections in November and the 2016 experients shows his supporters are far less likely to reveal their voting intentions than the virtue signalling democrats.

On Tuesday anti – Islamification activist Tommy Robinson was expunged from Facebook’s Instagram platform. He has already been banned from Twitter but still has an un-verified Facebook page with approaching a million followers, which he fears will be next.

In a statement, UKIP said: “These are private companies but the politically correct establishment is acting through corporations hand in glove to snuff out anything the globalist elite do not like.

“Free speech is under threat in the West, and we must stand firm in defence of it, otherwise, all dissenting voices will be muzzled.”

UKIP itself, which has won the last European Parliament election in Britain and remains the nation’s most significant party in that assembly, has also been the target of censorship by big tech firms.

The party’s leader and Gerard Batten MEP and one of its representatives in the London Assembly were “shadow banned” on Twitter last month, making it hard for most users to see their messages and severely restricting their reach on the platform.

UK Government wants complete control of online control to censor ‘unreliable’ news sources

British state needs complete online media control and wants to decide which news sites are ‘reliable’ – report

Demanding news websites be ranked on ‘perceived reliability’ by a state-sanctioned body and controlled by ‘impartiality’ rules, as well as suggesting social media firms fund education for citizens on what news to trust, are recommendations included in a parliamentary enquiry interim report.

The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, made up of anti-Brexit MPs, believe that satire and parody should be included in the definition of ‘Fake News’.

Other calls for all political ads to be registered, significant increases in fines for perceived wrongs during campaigns, including holding social media platforms responsible for ‘fake news’ on their platforms, are also in the report.

The remain MPs report also wants all political advertising to be declared in a public register with all ads to come with an imprint so it is clear where they originated.

Twitter descends into right-left spats over Tommy Robinson release from jail

Supporters and critics of Tommy Robinson have descended into tit-for-tat spats over the merits of the former English Defence League leader winning his court challenge, securing his immediate release on bail.

It didn’t take long for pro and anti-Robinson social media users to clash over the judges’ decision. In London on Wednesday Lord Chief Justice Lord Burnett and two other judges quashed a finding of contempt made against Robinson over an incident in Leeds in May – ordering a new hearing over the allegation.

It’s been a case of contrasting emotions on Twitter – joy from Robinson’s loyal backers and irrational fury from his critics. We should bear in mind, before alloeing ourselves to be swayed by the fury, that Robinson has not been declared innocent, he has been released under bail conditions and must present himself at a police station regularly to prove he has not bolted.

The Guardian reports that Robinson has been ordered to attend a retrial in London and to remain at least 400 meters away from Leeds crown court while on bail.

Testicularly Deficient Hate Merchant vs The Right

Owen Jones: thirty – something beardless youth who might start sounding sensible when his balls have dropped (Picture: https://possil.files.wordpress.com/ )

That odious little pre-pubescent shirt lifter Owen Jones, who fancies himself as leader of Labour’s hate squads is trying to stir up bad feeling again as he launches another bid to ban anyone who disagres with his fascistic brand of left wing authoritarianism from expressing their views in public. On Monday girly – boy Jones tweeted a video criticising major companies such as British Gas, Experian UK and TK Maxx for dvertising with the hugely popular LBC radio station. Though nominally a London franchise, LBC has acquired an audience far beyond the capital via internet radio, thanks to its willingness to give equal airtime to people Jones calls “extreme right wing” as they do to people Jones and his equally bigoted, university – brainwashed friends deem worth listening to.

This time Jones has taken issue with companies that advertise with LBC while people like former Ukip leader Nigel Farage has a slot on the radio station, conservative journalist Juliet Hartley Brewer and controversialist broadcaster Nick Ferrari are associated with the station.

Mr Jones asked if the brands if they were happy to be associated with LBC when they “legitimise” the rise of “rightwing extremism”. He tweeted: “Rightwing extremism’s on the rise – and LBC is legitimising it.

Jones does not seem concerned that he in turn is legitimising left wing extremism, although communists like Uncle Joe Stalin, Chairman Mao, Pol Pot, Erich Honecker, Fidel Castro and the rest killed far more of their own people than hitler ever did, (not that that in any way condones hitler’s crimes.)

On Tuesday Mrs Hartley-Brewer responded to Mr Jones’ claims. She tweeted: “Owen has the look of a man who doesn’t sleep, who is haunted by his demons. I honestly think he needs help.” (We think he needs a cruise missile up his arse, think of the nanosecond of intense pleasure he would experience before being blow to oblivion.)

Mr Jones retaliated and called her “vile” and an “unpleasant person”.  He tweeted: “Some people think Julia Hartley-Brewer’s nastiness is a performance, an act, that she can’t really be as vile as she comes across.

“I’m afraid she’s worse in real life: the most personally unpleasant person with a media platform in Britain. That takes some doing.”

In Little Owen’s world a vile and unpleasant person is anyone whose political opinions differ from his. We’re not the only people who think he’s a cunt of course. Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan had been scheduled to talk to the leftie after Donald Trumps visit to Britain but the invitation was rescinded after Jones tried to make political capital by asking followers should he go on the show. Juliet Hartley Brewer is a regular and popular guest on the Good Morning Britain.

Morgan tweeted: “Oh Owen, stop being so modest! I’ve met you both & you’re infinitely more unpleasant.”

Government Introduces The Free Speech Police Rapid Response Unit

The British government, which has been signalling its intention to abolish free speech and press freedom since the last Labour government (1997 – 2010) tried to declare debate on climate change policy a criminal act, and has intensified its efforts under The Conservatives since the 2016 ‘Brexit’, has this week launched a new agency dedicated to suppressing “alternative news” websites and those publishing ‘off – message’ opinions …

London Pride organizers forced to apologize after stunt by trans-hating lesbian group

Gay Pride organisers in London have apologized after being hit by a shitstorm of outrage for allowing a small anti-trans group of lesbians to lead the parade on Saturday. The organizers called Get the L Out’s behavior “unacceptable.”

Ten women from the anti-trans group appeared at the front of the parade carrying banners saying “transactivism erases lesbians” and describing the trans movement as “anti-lesbianism.”

Other LGBT groups motivated more by left wing political agenda than genuine interest in promoting alternative sexual preferences called on organizers to justify how the group had been able to march at the front of the 30,000-strong parade. Chair of LGBT+ Lib Dems Jennie Rigg described the protest as “a betrayal of the thousands marching.”

Get the L out leaders countered that the alliance of LGB groups to chicks-with-dicks activists, men who identify as women (in other words heterosexuals who like to wear sexy panties and make up) is a beterayal of lesbians. A man who has his dick cut off and then has non penetrative sex with women is still, biologically, a man.

A Get The L Out spokeswoman said the group was protesting against lesbians being “threatened and intimidated” by the GBT community.

Pride apologized for the “disgusting” behavior by the protest group and said in a statement: “The protest group showed a level of bigotry, ignorance and hate that is unacceptable. We reject what this group stands for. They do not share our values, which are about inclusion and respect and support for the most marginalized parts of our community.”

Bigotry and ignorance? Well that sounds par for the course when the Gay BLTs are involved.
