Self-proclaimed intellectuals are accusing fake news of manipulating conservatives.

The president is accusing fake news of manipulating elections.

Media moguls are threatening to censor fake news.

The main steam media, the originators of fake news, are laughing at everyone.

On a scale from ebola to facial herpes, the main stream media ranks lower than rectal-projectile-vomiting.

They are pushing for censorship and . . . believe it or not. . .they are getting quite a few people to help them do it.

We have a choice.

Do we embrace freedom, all freedom (the truth, the crazy, the fantasy) or do we do as the media and their willing accomplices want and introduce censorship?

Do me a favor people.

Before you endorse or embrace censorship under any guise. . . use your god damned mind and think.

If (after thinking) you still want censorship, then go suck door knobs you pathetic cowardly losers. I don't even want to acknowledge your weak and pathetic existence you puling, whiny, weak, simpletons.

If, on the other hand, you actually consider freedom, free expression, free speech, actual freedom, then I will consider you an ally and will always have your six.



This is a rant. Don't get anal and content-check me. It will annoy me and I will verbally beat you.

Agreed. Most it seem do not understand what freedom of speech really means. Freedom of speech protects the speech you do NOT like. What you say may not be acceptable to someone else. So before anyone advocates censorship, they must think deeply, and ask themselves if they would be OK with someone censoring what they have to say. Would you protest? If so, then you do not really advocate censorship.

I would prefer they censor the spin.
Example.
A pic taken of a Presidential nominee with a knife and a cucumber would be spun as they have murder and sex on their minds instead of just saying.....Presidential nominee makes a salad.

I get what you are saying DBCowboy...I am ranting too.

I agree, old media is slowing passing, still dangerous, but circling the drain.

We are the new media, de-centralized free and not paid to write anything and we scan thousands of stories a day.

We determine what fake news is, we don't need to be spoon fed.

I hope we can all let everyone loose to believe what they like and while we may not agree we are civil.

I applaud and agree with everything in your rant DC!

This notion that people are not capable of going over information and coming to their own conclusions is a smack in the face of every one of us.

People are being groomed to accept without question whatever the "authorities" have to say about any issue. The last screams of a dying paradigm.

We are waking up enmasse and as they try and clamp down, they simply add fuel to the fire.

We let the individual determine what is true or false on his own accord. Censorship has a longer and bloodier history than "fake news" ever will.

Nice sentiment. Now, do you consider many of the statement's by our OP to be civil?

Fake news won't go away, in an era where revenue is tied to how many clicks you generate, why would you care about getting things right or reporting the truth when you can say the most flashy thing that will get you more clicks, if you care about your image you can clarify things latter if you like but nobody will take your clicks away.

Freedom to express an opinion isn't always pretty or "sanitized for your protection".

I hope not, you'd be running out of safe spaces by now.

Really??? That is not what a certain political party wants you to hear. Even that skin you were born with could be considered offensive or violent...so, we need to censor that in some way now?

If you side with freedom, you'll never be in the wrong.
