Exactly. That's what the the left wants to turn America into. Have these left wing fascists lost there minds?

They just declare: "We will tell you what is fake and what is real because you are all too stupid to determine on your own." It's nothing but censorship of opposing viewpoints because citizen journalists and independent media and journalists are doing a better job at reporting the truth of what is going on in America and around in the world. Their false narratives fed to them by the Democrats aren't working anymore and they've lost their credibility. Most Americans don't trust the corporate media anymore. They've been exposed for the frauds they are.

It's so ironic that Fakebook is leading the charge on this.

The left wants to ban all media and speech that doesn't fall in line with their beliefs.



No. You are wrong.


Is this like when we were wrong that Trump would win? How did that work out?

Trump's win should have been the "smelling salts" that woke the left up and informed them of all the things troubling to sane people, but alas even a crushing loss brought on by Hillary's obscene corruption didn't do it. Perhaps the left are going to remain in a coma. So sad.

Both sides have "fake" news and I have been amazed all election cycle about how many people follow and repost them on Facebook. I think they have the right to lie their assess off and take advantage of idiots to get clicks for ad revenue... just as much as Facebook and Google should have the right to deny them ad revenue. Lies, disinformation and propaganda are the bane of modern journalism and media. I have gotten in a few arguments with numbskulls quoting bull# from these fake news sources. I have pointed out how they are wrong... with sources.. right in front of their faces and they still believed the fake news over reputed ones.

I lot can be said about a person by the measure of respect they have for the truth.

Where are you getting "ban" from and since when does one professor's list mean anything? Because 100percentfedup.com says so? After you got tricked into promoting a hoax last week, I'd think you'd be a little more circumspect. Guess not.

Realistically, had the media not squandered public trust the way it has, the rise of the alternative media would not be so prominent.


^^ This

They are dying due to their own stupidity a little bias is expected, but when it becomes blatant and some of it is outright lies you then get to witness your own demise.

Where does it say in your post that she wants these sites banned?

It says she circulated a list of sites "not to be trusted".

Sounds like something we would have seen under Bush Jr. after 9/11.

Just sayin'

There are 3 targets for these hoax sites:

- dumb people (there are plenty)
- gullible people (quite a few of these)
- people prone to confirmation bias, espeically those emotionally invested in a topic

The latter of the 3 represents who gives them the most clicks. The dumb and the gullible are off chasing butterflies.

No arguments here....Bush Jr. was an awful president imo and I still seeth at the Patriot Act becoming law which it seems no president from now on will willingly get rid of as it ceded individual freedom to the government.

Do tell us Texan, has ATS officially ever endorsed biased and misleading or false news yes or not? Because i could show you at least a couple from the BS videos which is spreading false or misleading information... And tell us, have you ever starred/flagged any of those biased and false/misleading reports without ever having checked the facts?... Because if you have, which I am certain most of us have done so at least once, then you fall into the category of "the dumb and gullible"... Or is it just that we all have some sort of bias and tend to show that bias from time to time?... Does that make people "dumb and gullible"? because then everyone is guilty, including you, isn't that true?

I'm sorry? I can't watch the video, but in ElectricUniverse's OP, it says



The websites that the left wants to ban/remove in their claims that they are fighting "fake news" include:


and I went to the 100percentfedup site, and it doesn't say she wants to ban anything. I'm just wondering where he got that info from.
