Stupid people, they think the banning will stop at what they don't like..??

It already is bad enough that our news is shiny and cut into individually sized chunks for easy digestion that is controlled by the wealthy and huge corps.

What is truly happening is they don't like me, and you doing what we are doing.

Brilliant. Who determines what is fake and how do they do it in 24 hours? People are still arguing over hillary's deleted emails after the subpoena was issued.

Screw the EU.

This should really hurt them in any future EU votes. I'm guessing countries will be leaving this sinking ship as fast as they can, atleast I hope so.

I can't think of a way that this works out ok for the social media out lets. Seems like they need to let all news in or no news in.

This is a dangerous tight rope that they and the EU is walking.

That would be a spectacular war to watch, and I think Trump lives for it.

Have you confirmed this is itself not fake news?

And I think it's targeting what's posted on facebook and youtube. It's not targeting independent sites likt ATS or Alex Jones.

But if it's genuine news is it something to worry about? Maybe. It has implications. So we can't think for ourselves? We can't navigate youtube without a strict governing system to protect us? We need safe spaces? This is all making us out to be vulnerable and too stupid for our own good. If anything, it's very anti-individual and aides the strong government narrative.

If this goes on oneday the government will own our souls. But this is of course fear speaking. Slippery slope and all. Fear fear itself?

BS, some of the things we discuss here would be considered Fake News.

One that comes to mind is Pizzagate.
Gulf of Tonkin.
WWII FDR what he knew and when. This could all be considered "fake News".

Any censorship leads to all censorship.

I wonder how many will look to Russia for help?

This fake news things is really getting under their skin in the EU. Don't you think after WWII that they would fight tooth and nail for the freedom of the press to tell the truth?

Not going to happen, profit is king. The large corps will need to be forced to do the right thing.

Look at the most successful companies. Where is their stuff made?

Nike
under armor
apple
video game systems
Levis
fruit of the loom

With all the profit out there they are not going to make shoes here unless they are made to, with tariffs, or boycotts. For crying out loud Nike has to have inspectors to make sure the workers are being treated ok. Apple main contractor has suicide nets on their buildings.

Yep. which Trump i s going to hit them with. Punishing them is the right thing to do for Profiteering. shoot id hit them with a 65 percent tax for outsourcing the work to brink the items back to sell here instead of making them here already. We Have to break them from out sourcing.

Everyone wants to be Russia all the sudden. Been told for decades how evil those communists are and suddenly the Western powers want to follow their lead. Cut off any news you don't like, label it propaganda against the state, make it illegal.

Of course, it's too little, too late. It's essentially a tantrum which Trump will confront come Jan 20th as real news thru non-MSM platforms was a large part of him winning.

You can expect a Trump administration to go to war with the media elites.

The European Union is demanding that Twitter, YouTube and Facebook censor “illegal hate speech” within 24 hours, content that includes so-called “fake news,” a term so broad that it includes perfectly legitimate news content.



Is anyone bothered that this is only showing up on what looks like "fake news" sites.

Maybe they should get jail time for Lying from now on. news should be truthful,and if not there is no need for it. Unless you label it as satire or comedy news.

Agreed, but up to this point if you even considered bringing up the fact that these corps are really acting like spoiled little brats you were deemed a socialist.
Now maybe we can have an adult conversation about worker treatment, environmental damage, currency manipulation, monopolies and most importantly out sourcing.
Then of course the fact that quite a few of the big boys don't pay taxes is an important little fact too.

Is this just a marketing gimmick?

Alex Jones has the countdown but it seems more focused on tricking people to subscribe.

Sorry, I trust Alex as much as Bill Cooper did.
