  • The FBI Again Tries To Block Seth Rich’s Laptop From Public View

    American Thinker ^ | 2 Feb, 2024 | Ron Wright
    The agency’s frantic efforts to hide the laptop’s contents inevitably lead to the suspicion that there’s something on it that the powers in DC don’t want Americans to see. Not surprisingly, our media have ignored the Rich story. As I sat at Starbucks, I showed twelve random people a recent news photograph of FBI Director Christopher Wray. Most were under thirty and primarily female. None could identify Wray by name or position. I blame our media for the absence of objective reporting, censoring information, and publishing propaganda without question, i.e., false war porn and casualty counts of Hamas. Small wonder,...

    The new CEO for National Public Radio (NPR) has become instant news over social media postings that she deleted before the recent announcement of her selection. Katherine Maher is the former CEO of Wikipedia and sought to remove controversial postings on subjects ranging from looters to Trump. Shannon Thaler at the New York Post reassembled Maher’s deleted postings including a 2018 declaration that “Donald Trump is a racist” and a variety of race-based commentary. That included a statement that appeared to excuse looting: She is also quoted for saying that “white silence is complicity.” She has described her own “hysteric...
  • In the name of ‘fake news,’ NewsGuard extorts sites to follow the government narrative By Social Links forLee Fang

    New York Post ^ | Dec. 10, 2023 | Lee Fang
    Half a century ago, George Orwell, writing on literary censorship, wrote that “unpopular ideas can be silenced, and inconvenient facts kept dark, without the need for any official ban.” That dynamic now broadly extends to an opaque network of government agencies and self-proclaimed anti-misinformation groups that have repressed online speech. There’s no official ban on discussing the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines or criticizing American involvement in the Ukraine-Russia war, but editors and journalists have realized that writing on such topics can come at a cost. News publishers have been demonetized and shadow-banned for reporting dissenting views and the bureaucratic means...

    Back in 2017, the Daily Beast wrote that Operation Mockingbird “has never been officially discontinued.” Wikipedia - the internet encyclopedia constantly propped up to be the #1 source for online information and constantly shoved down our throats — provides damning evidence that the government infiltration of American news and information is alive and well. Most Google searches rank Wikipedia at the top of the search results page. And YouTube uses it whenever they put one of those annoying “context tabs” on a video. Yet Wikipedia is not considered a reliable source of information by anyone with half a brain. Most...

    Billionaire Elon Musk offered Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia, $1 billion under the condition that it changes its name to “Dickipedia.” The owner of X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, wrote his offer in a post on his site. He had previously posted a screenshot of a personal appeal from Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales stating that the website is “not for sale.” “I will give them a billion dollars if they change their name to Dickipedia,” Musk wrote. “Please add that to the [cow and poop emojis] on my wiki page,” he continued in another post. “In...

The Tesla CEO and owner of X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, took to his social media account to offer the online encylcopedia a generous donation if they're willing to rename their site. "I will give them a billion dollars if they change their name to Dickipedia," wrote Musk. "Please add that to the [cow and poop emojis] on my wiki page," he continued. "In the interests of accuracy."

    X owner Musk came out swinging against the leftist media hall monitor NewsGuard and called for the whole company to be “disbanded immediately.” Musk responded to criticism from WikiPedia co-founder Jimmy Wales who whined in a post Oct. 17 about the X platform allegedly removing “all the core features that made it even remotely possible to tell real journalists from fakes.” Through discussion on the X thread, Foundation For Freedom Online Executive Director Mike Benz pointed out to Musk that Wales was an advisor to the leftist biased NewsGuard, “which is knee deep in a plot to get gov’ts to...

    Hamas continues to use Gazan civilians as human shields by building its terrorist infrastructure in densely populated civilian areas, the Israel Defense Forces said on Tuesday, sharing evidence of the Islamist group’s facilities located near medical clinics, schools and U.N. buildings. “Hamas infrastructure is deliberately embedded within civilian areas and in proximity to international assets, using the population as human shields,” said the report by the IDF International Cooperation Division. “In order to mitigate harm to noncombatants, the IDF carries out surgical strikes,” it added. The report included aerial maps of Gaza City’s Rimal residential neighborhood, showing Hamas facilities in...

    The 2024 candidate, who joins other elite-educated Republicans in cosplaying as a truth-telling populist while offering no actual solutions to improve people’s material conditions, has reportedly used some of his millions of dollars to pay a Wikipedia editor to scrub his past. Mediaite reports that Ramaswamy seems to have paid Wikipedia editor “Jhofferman,” to remove information from his page that he presumably thought would damage his candidacy in the Republican primary. A few days later, he announced his 2024 bid. The editor scrubbed off information related to Ramaswamy receiving the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans in 2011,...

Speaking on Greenwald’s ‘System Update’ podcast, Sanger lamented how the site he helped found in 2001 has become an instrument of “control” in the hands of the left-liberal establishment, among which he counts the CIA, FBI, and other US intelligence agencies. “We do have evidence that, as early as 2008,...

    If you ever wanted to add something to Wikipedia, but didn't know how. Maybe you even just wanted to fix a typo. Here's a brief introduction to editing on the site: - Start small and simple, and edit what you know best. That will build your essential editing skills and your confidence. Make small edits on subjects you know very well -- such as your hometown, or something you have an interest in. You might find a small error on one of those pages, or you might be able to add a little extra information. Many Wikipedia pages can be...

    Standing up for the freedom of speech is something that is certain to annoy the good folks in Islamabad. But now the same Pakistani government has taken aim at hyper-woke Wikipedia, accusing the Leftist Big Tech giant of hurting Muslim sentiments. How crestfallen they must be today in Wikipedia’s San Francisco headquarters: for years they’ve been smearing critics of Islam and whitewashing Islamic doctrine and history, and this is the thanks they get. The Associated Press reported Monday that the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority “blocked Wikipedia services in the country for hurting Muslim sentiment by not removing purportedly blasphemous content from...

  • Woke Users at Soros-Funded Wikipedia Cast Musk Suspending Lefty Journos as ‘Thursday Night Massacre’

    Leftists at the George Soros-funded Wikipedia attempted to paint the elitist journalists who shared the real-time flight location information of Twitter owner Elon Musk as victims of a “massacre.” Yes, you read that right. A Wikipedia article was published with a babbling headline that needed no explanation: “Thursday Night Massacre (Twitter).” The article’s logic was just pure nonsense: “The ‘Thursday Night Massacre’ is a term that refers to the December 15, 2022, account suspension of several high-profile journalists from the Twitter platform.”

    The Intercept ^ | Oct 31 | Ken Klippenstein & Lee Fang
    THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY is quietly broadening its efforts to curb speech it considers dangerous, an investigation by The Intercept has found. Years of internal DHS memos, emails, and documents — obtained via leaks and an ongoing lawsuit, as well as public documents — illustrate an expansive effort by the agency to influence tech platforms. The work, much of which remains unknown to the American public, came into clearer view earlier this year when DHS announced a new “Disinformation Governance Board”: a panel designed to police misinformation (false information spread unintentionally), disinformation (false information spread intentionally), and malinformation (factual...

    The Department of Homeland Security has been working to influence big tech platforms. This became originally evident when the Biden administration launched the ill-fated Disinformation Governance Board early in 2022, but has been a focus of their efforts even beyond that now-defunct unit, and before. Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed a lawsuit that revealed via appended meeting minutes that former Microsoft executive Matt Masterson, who was formerly an official with DHS, told a DHS director in February 2022 that "Platforms have got to get comfortable with gov't. It's really interesteding how hesitant they remain." This according to The Intercept....
