Skip to comments.How Mark Zuckerberg I$ Trying to Take Over American New$papers
Posted on 01/06/2022 7:35:01 AM PST by george76
Big Tech billionaires, including Mark Zuckerberg, who already censor comments and news they don’t like, are now coming after your local paper.
The group Report for America is placing its hand-selected woke reporters into local newsrooms across America to cover “under-reported” stories such as climate issues.
Zuckerberg’s company, Facebook (now called Meta), and his and his wife’s charitable foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, are pouring millions into this effort.
And it ain’t beanbag. They expect results. Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan spent $300,000,000 taking over elections offices in 2020 with the Center for Tech and Civic Life to tip the election to hapless Joe Biden, who conducted his campaign practically bound and gagged in the basement of his house.
Billionaire George Soros bankrolled woke district attorneys and Secretaries of State candidates to remake the justice system and change elections laws. Catching Soros’s vision, another Facebook swell donated millions to elect far-Left DAs through the Accountable Justice Action Fund and Justice PAC.
Billionaire Michael Bloomberg bought — yes, bought — apparatchiks and installed them at State Attorneys General offices to “bring politically motivated lawsuits.” They’re still there.
Isn’t it odd that all of a sudden laws aren’t being enforced, bail is virtually gone, seemingly every difference of opinion is suddenly criminalized, bodies are piling up, and crime rates have skyrocketed? But this isn’t a case of “you break it, you buy it.” It’s exactly the opposite: they bought it to break it. The resulting dysfunction isn’t an anomaly; chaos is a feature of their plan.
These titans are putting their money where your mouth is, complete with a ball gag.
This is an effort to dismantle the connection between local capitalism and news and put it into the hands of woke Leftists and the government. You know, like Pravda.

Newspapers are already owned by the cabal that owns zuckerberg.
If this happens, many will just whine that newspapers are owned by zuck, shielding the real owners.
I can’t see what really would be changed in the end.
Dan Rather still would’ve used forged documents in 2004 even if CBS were owned by FB.
“Mark Zuckerberg” “climate”
I bet he’s not currently in Buffalo, NY.
All the news they see fit to print worth reading:
But is that just me?
During the American Revolution, the British tried to destroy all the local printing presses.
One of the tools of the revolution was one page news that was passed from around.
We all have a printing press in our homes. Nothing stops us from starting a local newspaper. and putting it in places of business.
Personally, I would pay for well balanced stories like the old days.
Are they well-intentioned idiots who live in a fantasy bubble, unconnected to reality, and imagine their efforts will create utopia?
Or are the Machiavellian evil geniuses, knowingly undermining society, to rebuild a stronger oligarchy atop the ruins?
Great article. I wasn’t aware at all this crap was going on.
PJMedia has really become a go-to site.
Is he also buying up all the buggy whip factories?
Thanks. Many local outlets ( taken over by woke leftist mega chains ) block comments, letters to the editor, conservative columnists, etc. who are not woke.
A lot of little newspapers are still out of control
Part B of the commie rules B. Get control of all means of publicity
They can not stand dissent. Think China or North Korea
Newspaper what’s that? I haven’t subscribed or read a local newspaper in years. Subscriptions and sales of the local cat box liners have dropped faster than Joe Biden’s approval numbers. Back in the day when I naively subscribed to a local newspaper, I once told the editor that I read the front page, editorials and comics in his paper everyday and most days couldn’t tell much difference. Shortly after I quit subscribing to any newspaper. Today I peruse a variety of news sources online, including foreign media, particularly the French press.
To hell with this punk Zuck.
I haven’t read a NewsPaper in ten years.
I use freebie newspapers as bird paper and to put on the table when my kids paint.
