THE BUTT-HURT CONTINUES: Hillary’s Minions Join Facebook To Fight ‘Fake News’ As a Way To Silence Conservatives

They just aren't letting this go!

The butt-hurt among liberals continues in the light of Donald Trump winning the election, and part of their way to lash out has been to attack right-leaning Conservative news sites as “fake news.”

The Associated Press announced today it is joining the fight against “fake news” organizations that are profiteering through online social media.

In addition to AP, all of the corporate media is lining up to announce that they will join Facebook’s “fight” against “fraudulent stories” and “scourge of fake news”. The censored news organizations will be defined arbitrarily by this association of media outlets. First it was left-wing “fact-checkers” such as Snopes and Politifact, now it’s AP and soon to follow, the rest of the mainstream media.

The Associated Press and others have taken it upon themselves to adopt this fight in “setting the standards for accuracy and ethics in journalism.” However, they have already been exposed coordinating stories with Hillary Clinton and the DNC as pointed out by Mike Cernovich in the tweet below.

The announcement from the Associated Press comes directly from  their blog where they claim to have done “some of the most thorough fact-checking in the news business” which gives them the right to determine what news is true enough for you to even see.

The fight against fake news

As part of its broader fact-checking efforts, The Associated Press announced Thursday that it will work with Facebook to help identify and debunk trending “news” stories being shared online that are false.

AP stories dispelling patently false trending news articles already appear on the AP wire, on APNews.com and on the AP News app. These stories, which will now say “AP Fact Check” in the headline, include details on AP’s efforts to verify the facts in fake news stories.

Now, when AP or another participating fact-check organization flags a piece of content as fake, Facebook users will see that it has been disputed and there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining why. That flag will follow the content if a Facebook user chooses to share it.

“AP has long done some of the most thorough fact-checking in the news business,” said Sally Buzbee, AP’s incoming executive editor. “This initiative is a natural extension of that tradition, and of the AP’s long-standing role setting the standards for accuracy and ethics in journalism.”

AP has consistently provided nonpartisan fact checks to its member news organizations and customers, which objectively examine the claims of politicians and government and other officials.

AP has long set the industry standard for accuracy and ethics in journalism, through its rigorous code of News Values and Principles and through The Associated Press Stylebook, which is used by news organizations around the world.

In an earlier memo to staff signed by AP news leaders, Vice President for U.S. News Brian Carovillano explained:

It is our job – more than ever before – to guide people to legitimate news and help them sort out “fake news” from the real thing.The AP has a critical role to play in fighting the scourge of fake news. We are not going to transform ourselves into the fake news police of the internet, but we are going to be more aggressive about knocking down fraudulent stories when we can.

Some of the liberal media declared top conservative news websites that have already been labeled as “fake news” was named after the election of Donald Trump. However, a few websites have filed suit and had their name removed from the public list.

The Washington Post singled out several top news organizations.

While the act of fact-checking news can be heralded as a noble and worthy service, it is putting that determination solely into the hands of organizations that will gladly sell out their readers to a Democrat criminal such as Hillary Clinton. If it weren’t for the social endeavors of conservative news companies, Donald Trump wouldn’t have won the election.

These liberal corporate media organizations are simply attempting to – once again – gain complete control over the information that you see and hear. In doing so, they are merely “driving the nail into the coffin” and forcing Facebook users to search for a less limiting alternative like GAB.ai or Diaspora.
