“Fake News” And The Mainstream Media Delusion

-By Paul A. Philips

Fake News-iNewParadigm

Fake News: The difference may be as extreme as night and day when looking at some mainstream media (MSM) reports on events and comparing them to what actually happened. However, in recent years, we have seen an encouraging (r)evolution in journalism as it continues to be redefined:


Through alternative (independent) and social media sources, a number of us have discovered the startling revelations on how the owner/controller establishment use their MSM fake news reporting as a tool for manipulating consensus reality to favour agendas, regardless of the truth.


In effect, because of alternative and social media’s exponentially increasing numbers of awakened individuals seeing right through MSM’s phony baloney and exposing it en masse, the establishment’s control of the narrative is failing.


Gaining in influence, the alternative/ social media has caused much disruption to the establishment’s agendas. For instance, in its influence, the alternative/ social media had prevented the establishment’s choice for president from winning the recent US presidential election…

In a desperate attempt to claw back that control, the establishment will use the ‘fake news’ label to censor the alternative and social media. For instance, the European Union has told Facebook to get rid of the ‘fake news’ or face the music, while the UK Parliament will make enquiries into ‘fake news…’

In other words, the establishment are censoring what they can’t control. The ‘fake news’ labelling will


  • …backfire, by serving as an indicator to the awakened public that the censored item/items will be something the establishment doesn’t want them to know about, so as a consequence, will gain greater attention.
    Become a ‘status symbol’ for originators of the alternative/social media sources to want to achieve…
  • Be futile, as there are a number of ways to get past the censorship, such as, for example, setting up outlets different to the current social media giants who, by the way, are data sources for government spying agencies such the NSA.
  • Following on from point 3, be ‘suicide’ for the MSM outlets, as their popularity will further dwindle through more and more people boycotting…
  • Start the MSM outlets off by censoring the ‘obvious hoaxes,’ but as time goes by, in the way of the totalitarian tiptoe, they will eventually try and filter everything that goes against the wishes of the ruling establishment. Officially, that will mean everything the MSM says is factual! Which will be nothing more than ‘credibility suicide’ for the MSM.


Thus, the idea of thinking that through censoring alternative/social media sources by labelling it as ‘fake news’ while the MSM has total control over the narrative is nothing short of delusion. It simply will not work.
