Breitbart: “Facebook has announced it will introduce warning labelson stories they deem to be “fake news,” with the help of partisan “fact checking” organisations such as Snopes and PolitiFact.
Stories deemed to be false will now be “flagged” by Facebook, with an accompanying red label claiming the story is “disputed by 3rd Party Fact-Checkers.”
Opinion: In 2011 there were many voices on the left calling for the resurgence of the Fairness Doctrine due to the growing voice of conservative news outlets like Hannity, Limbaugh and Drudge.
The Fairness Doctrine was adopted in 1949 and required licensed broadcasters to share airwaves equally for competing political points of view. The doctrine was revoked in 1987, but many conservatives feared that it would be resurrected as a way to break its dominance in talk radio.
Today censorship will be blamed on fake news and the arbiters of truth will be Snopes, ABC, Politifact, and FactCheck.org, all of which have records of left-wing partisanship.
Today there will be innocuous labels warning the reader:
Tomorrow any news story that the truth police do not agree with will be banned. From there it is then a short jump to banning the websites that are accused of fake news altogether.
For the final empire and its powerful dictator to be in total control of virtually everything, Daniel 7:23 Rev. 13:16-17, free speech will be first to go.
