I'd think fake news has strongly abetted the Marxist order, however the term "fake news" is obviously a gift to them, because it deflects from their
own widespread use of propaganda.
While the People's Republic of China is certainly more liberated than, for example, North Korea, from what I hear their news is still pretty censored
and often direct apparatchik spin.
Under Stalinist Marxism it was even worse. A lot of reality almost completely disappeared, and everything was fake - even Lysenko's "science" was
fake. Apparently that pseudo-science still influenced the AIDS denialism of ANC politicians in South Africa as late as 2008.
Or as they used to grimly joke in the former East Germany (GDR): "Tomorrow we ban the death penalty, and who ever doesn't believe that will be
Even the Western leftist media like CNN has published a lot of fake news. For example, that Saddam had loads of chemical weapons (great journalism
guys - all alternative media knew it wasn't true). Or telling the world that Jihadists in Syria were liberal bloggers, leading a flowery revolution.
Never even mind more pernicious falsehoods some leftist outlets have pushed. For example, that the mass rape of German women during New Year 2015/2016
was caused by ethnic German men, when the whole continent knows who the culprits were. Or that Omar Mateen (the Orlando shooter) was a self hating
homosexual, rather than a self-confessed Islamist. Talk about leftist homophobia! Claims without a shred of evidence. When it comes to marriage
tokenism they were gushing all over us (gays), but as soon as it comes to downplaying the role of Islamism in certain atrocities they will throw us to
the wolves. Yeah, even if it means a new ideological anti-gay pogrom following a major tragedy. That I cannot forgive.
No, I think false news has actually served the leftist alliance of academia, left-wing political parties and news channels quite well.
Fine, have your delusional fun.
Unless you happen to be their target by dint of your race and/or gender (although in reality, they haven't done men or women any favors).
