It is remarkable the story of free press suppression amongst those who would like to take or even remain in control. And several philosopher has noted that; He Who Owns The Media, Owns The Minds Of The People. Today we see Silicon Valley, namely Facebook and Google wishing to eliminate whatever they call “Fake News” from the internet sites of theirs, namely Google News as well as Facebook’s News Feed. Naturally, this presents quite an slippery slope – among mass censorship. In fact, both companies have been seen suppressing right-wing news and enhancing positive news towards left leaning politicians.
In Bangla News , there’s work to prevent Fake News in the media or online to stay foreign governments from trying to subvert our elections or perhaps poison the minds of our individuals from propaganda. Still, it’s apparent by the mainstream media’s reporting on this energy in Washington DC the target is right wing alternative online news. The mainstream media is concerned it is losing large numbers of visitors, thus a large amount of advertising revenues as a result of web news sites – competition they would prefer never to have. Are most of these forces; the mainstream press, Democrat Party, and major Internet social networks and online search engine converging to regulate the our information and put a cap on the brains of the masses?
Well, if history is any judge, then the answer is yes. All dictatorships, communist nations, and even the NAZI regime worked very hard to manage the news. Actually the terrorists, spies & nation states that sponsor terrorism work with the news for propaganda.
There was a fascinating article in Foreign Affairs posted on January 7, 2014 titled; “Al Jazeera’s’ False News’ Problem,” by Judy Bachrach. Just how I see this is that every information agency has an agenda, and one hell of a great deal of power using the brains of the individuals. When looking at this at the think tank of ours, one thinker noted;
“The author of that article placed Israel directly close to the main fulcrum of their judgement, then provides a contradictor closing, subsequently sums it up this particular way: 1. Can’t blame them for mistreating journalist that lie,
2. Guess, I need to side along with the liars because 2nd Amendment claims – it’s their right to lie.”
The think tanker type notes that this is dangerous psychological banter, rather than states and facts he would rather read a thing about the American Networks since he usually has to go to BBC, as well as other media outlets to find the wonderful news.
Wow, now those’re a few interesting comments indeed. However, when I look at news media as RT (Russian TV) it typically provides a bad slant towards the US, at times they are right and make us search in the mirror, sometimes it’s merely persnickety negative diatribes. A lot more like a clock, correct a couple of times per day. Al Jazeera America, I feel is frequently better than RT, although not with regards to Middle East sectarian issues, they’re all one way also. RT is usually leftist slant, is practical. Modern day current information, well it requires a sharp eye and determination to read between the sort, bullet points and sound bites.
When we look at FOX News they lean right, and CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, all lean to th
