HuffPo Proposes Chinese-Style Media Ban to Fight Fake News...
The left believes in a romanticized version of Socialism where the government always has your best interests in mind and money drops out of the sky at the same rate as bird crap. They tend to gloss over the parts about food shortages and human rights violations. But, alas, those are just details . Their latest attempt at turning America red? The Huffington Post wants to impose a Chinese-style media ban to combat fake news. Not making that up...
Editors at China’s leading nationalist newspaper, Global Times, don’t often sympathize with the United States. So it was notable when the paper joined Americans last fall in scolding Facebook for spreading fake news. In an editorial titled “Western media’s crusade against Facebook,” the state-run paper argued that without government regulation — censorship, in other words — fake news, propaganda and rumor would spread disastrously across the internet.
“The whole premise of media policy in China is that information must be controlled and directed in order to maintain social and political stability,” said David Bandurski, a researcher at the University of Hong Kong’s China Media Project.
“What we are seeing around the struggle over fake news is not a question at all of what political systems are best suited to seeking the truth,” he said. “It is a question of whether truth matters, or worse a conviction that the truth is dictated by political necessity.”
Do leftists realize Republicans have the presidency and both houses of Congress? If we were to allow the government to regulate the media, it's not Fox News or The Blaze would be getting the axe. Leftist media outlets like Huffington Post, on the other hand...
Furthermore, leftists shouldn't complain about "fake news." They're the people who are usually responsible for it. Remember "hands up, don't shoot?" Slav-squatters hacking our power grid? Trump's made-up hooker pee-pee scandal? Frankly, if we put the kibosh on fake news, where would the left go? Without lies, they'd have nothing to report.
This censorship push is entirely about shutting down alternate news sources outside of the ivory tower left media, ensuring they're the sole dispensers of "the truth." It's hard to get single-payer healthcare or "free" college plans across when pesky journalists keep reporting on the costs. Gag the media and it's smooth sailing, all the way to their jacked-up hippie commune of a dystopia.
China blocks sites like Snapchat and Facebook in order to control its citizens. Which is exactly what the left wants. Control. Depriving Americans from a free media is the first baby step toward full-blown Socialism. Some advice for you kind folks out there. Don't let it happen.
And don't let them sink their claws into the younglings...
