Came across this on Dailymail regarding Alefantis and #PizzaGate.

Looks like ATS is going to have to make this a !Pizzagate website if they rely on any revenue from Adsense.

Daily Mail



Google has revealed it is working on a policy change to its AdSense online advertising network that will prevent websites with misleading content from using it to earn money, while Facebook has said it is updating its advertising policy to restrict adverts appearing alongside 'misleading or deceptive' content.

The announcement comes following criticism of social media over the role it played in the US presidential election , and the alleged spread of false information that may have influenced some voters.




You know what I think would help all of this?

An explanation of the e-mails from Podesta himself, or even the president especially considering he has obviously been implicated.

the problem with this is WHO DECIDES what is misleading and deceptive? If TPTB decide, then good luck anyone ever getting any news out there that disagrees with the status quo. It is a scary time right now.

The information war is ramping up.

It does have that feel right now. There is a war starting online, to see who controls the flow of ideas. The thing is, TPTB have wanted to control the flow of info on the net for quite some time. But why the push now, and why so fast? Was it the election that has them in an uproar, or is it cover for something else they dont want out there. I wonder........

This is all happening in the wake of Trump's huge victory despite the narrative that the pollsters and every major media outlet was spewing to the public.

Their influence and propaganda just isn't working anymore, the alternative media has become the real media and they are beginning to panic.

What I find really funny is that Pizzagate is most definitely an ongoing 'crowd-based' investigation. It is not fake news as it's simply an investigation working what limited evidence there is and digging for more. I think there definitely is something shady going on - a child trafficker working for the Clinton foundation and yet, big surprise, this has received very little media coverage.

I haven't seen any news site I'd consider reputable saying that Pizzagate is 100% fact. I have been following Pizzagate from the start and I'm relatively sure that even those doing the investigating do not consider this 100% fact - surely as open minded people who pursue theories like this, they don't put all of thier eggs in one basket.

The only people pushing this story as if it's some kind of big push to spread fake news are, big surprise again, certain elements of the media.

I'm very worried that a corporation can decide what constitute news and what is deemed "fake news". What's to stop Facebook accepting a payment from Monsanto to block certain news platforms or articles?

Wow, I called on this earlier on as a potential issue that may be brought up with all this. That would be restricting the free flow of information with these user generated content sites that rely on such ad revenue being put on the spot.

Say Goodbye to all right leaning sites and bite like ATS. That's the goal here. This so called crackdown of what they call fake news is a bigger story than Trump winning the election and no one is saying anything about it. The average person has no idea this is happening.

Yeah, because they think it just applies to click bait sites.

When they see this, now what?

How long until ATS have to start trimming threads and posts because they will lose their ad revenue?

When the fakestream media started rabbiting on about fake news sites I immediately felt it was the beginning of an attack on the altmedia.

I foresee a time when sites such as ATS will be forced to become a members only/"Pay to keep it Free" type of site and become ad free to avoid content censorship from entities like AdSense etc.
I hope it never comes to this, but if tptb have their way I could see these things happening

Just my .02

Let them try it. They'll be showing their true colors to the world. They think they have so much control, but they're going to keep learning their lesson, as they did with the election, that The People aren't as asleep as they think.

Websites will change ad engines, many taking a financial hit for the sake of not being censored. Users who've never donated a cent will start giving money to sites that haven't caved under the pressure. And the tyrants can say goodbye to their squeaky clean image that they've lied and paid so much to maintain.

I have the strangest craving for popcorn.

Trimming threads? I've heard that was implemented already with some topics. I really hope that is not the case but these ad companies do have big say so.

Yup, was only a matter of time before it moved onto user generated content sites.

Wonder if that would upset the paid shill types, now that they would have to fork out money to try to control the conversations.

As I see it, this id the 21st Century equivalent to banning or book burning. It is a knee jerk reaction and attempt to completely control the narrative by electronically "banning" or "burning" the sites down.

Very sad state of affairs. If history is any sort of teacher, this will only result in a rush to see and read these "banned books" before they disappear. We at ATS need to make sure our words are not silenced, and the flow of information continues to move freely despite the efforts to silence them.
