“Phony News” or Targeted Censorship?

When I heard 0bama tell people to watch out for “phony news,” it occurred to me that his comment was most likely stated in order to put forth a lying, fake meme of some sort in order to try and protect the failed policies of his terrible presidency of 8 years and the Democrat’s failed candidacy of Hillary Clinton.

But I was curious to find out what, exactly, he was referring to in his comments.  My guess is that it certainly wasn’t the pandering, chortling, pro-Hillary mantra that the media-of-mass-deception spewed throughout the election process.  Nope!  He was all for that fake news scenario.   So what was he referring to?

Could he have meant his comment to be an attempt to cause people to ignore the Wikileaks documents that exposed the cheating of the Hillary campaign and all of the other bad news that was exposed about the far leftist lunatics?  What about the YouTube videos that exposed Hillary’s health problems?

Was he referring to the conservative, social media (like blogs), certain YouTube channels and memes that exposed Clinton Foundation and Democrat corruption on Twitter?

Was he referring to James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas videos that showed the stench of corruption and cheating going on in the Hillary campaign by Democrat election operatives?

What was it?

Ah!  Perhaps the following article explains it!

Vox.com: Facebook is full of fake news stories. On Election Day, don’t fall for them.

Notice that the one-sided article (obviously pro-Hillary) states things like this:

And that’s the biggest thing to keep in mind on Election Day. Facebook’s enormous reach means that lies and distortions — regardless of whether they come from GOP dirty tricksters, partisan journalists, paid trolls in Russia, or money-seeking entrepreneurs in Macedonia — can genuinely impact the outcome of the campaign. Be careful with what you read, be careful with what you retweet, and be careful with what you share on Facebook. There are bad actors out there hoping to mess with our election. Don’t make it easier for them.

Hmmm…so where in that statement do we read, “Dem dirty tricksters?” Answer: NOT THERE!

Well, WND is on the case and reveals exactly where this meme came from!

WND.com: Meet Leftist Prof Who Wrote “Hit List” of “Fake” News Sites.

Excerpt:

Zimdars has not responded to WND’s request for clarification on her expertise or criteria for deciding which news sources to include on her list. WND asked Merrimack College President Christopher Hopey if he stands by Zimdars’ decision to publish the list and use it as teaching material for her classes. However. Merrimack Vice President of Communications Jim Chiavelli replied, “Thanks for your question to the president about professor Zimdars pedagogy. The college has no comment for this story.”

Concerned individuals may contact Melissa Zimdars and Merrimack College President Christopher Hopey.

[Note from Christine:  Zimdars and Hopey?  One would think that these are phony names if their true existence wasn’t actually revealed and verified!]

In response to the list, PJ Media’s Stephen Kruzier wrote “it’s no surprise that a college professor compiled this list; what’s galling is that the Los Angeles Times ‘reported’ on it without mentioning that it’s complete garbage.”

Sean Hannity’s website warned that Zimdar’s list includes “mainstream conservative sources” and “is giving us insight into just what kind of websites the left plans on targeting for censorship.”

Moral of the story.  They have been exposed and found out because of the true journalism of conservative websites and everyday journalists who brought forth the truth during the 2016 Election!

Lying is sin.  People can make mistakes and unfortunately (or even unknowingly at the time), put forth a lie as truth.  Thank God there is forgiveness for all sins through repentance and faith in Christ.

Col 3:9

Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds,

Col 3:10

and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,

Jesus had very strong words about people who deliberately and viciously lie; and just who the “father of lies” is:

Jhn 8:44

“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

The second half of this Bible verse tells the truth of the matter:

Num 32:23

“But if you do not do so, then take note, you have sinned against the LORD; and be sure your sin will find you out.

Excerpt:

Media schizophrenia.

Every quantum leap in mass communications also made possible a vast improvement in propaganda techniques. Nazi and Soviet propaganda looks as crude to us as a Babbage calculating machine. Virtual reality isn’t something that’s coming. It’s here. It’s been here for a while. The potent combination of media budgets and crowdsourced social media distribution has allowed for a previously unparalleled level of propaganda that creates and inhabits its own virtual reality.

There’s a name for that sort of thing. Schizophrenia.

What happens when the schizophrenic media reality collapses when it comes into too sharp of a conflict with reality is the same behavior that schizophrenics exhibit when their perceptions of the world conflict with the real world.

The people venting and rioting and screaming were living in a cozy reality. Everyone in that progressive reality understood that history was on their side, that the majority was with them and that the right was a decaying mass of racists and corporations soon to be swept away by the tide of change.

But this wasn’t reality. It was a carefully constructed narrative that fooled even the people who were building it. It was a virtual world overlaid over the real world. Its narratives were so integrated with the real world that it seemed as if it were real. There were stories and polls. Everyone in their social media bubble, except a few crazy uncles agreed with them. All the celebrities were on board.

And then the holodeck got switched off.

Yes!  The holodeck got switched off during the Election of 2016!!!

    You’ve fallen for fake news at least twice on these pages that I know of, so I’m not sure anyone should be taking advice from you on what to watch out for. Especially if that advice was supplied by WND, who has been dispensing the “Obama = foreign-born Muslim” story for most of a decade now.

    Of course, you acknowledged in your CYA statement:

    Lying is sin. People can make mistakes and unfortunately (or even unknowingly at the time), put forth a lie as truth. Thank God there is forgiveness for all sins through repentance and faith in Christ.

    If you unknowingly put forth a lie as truth, that does not make you a liar; it simply makes you wrong (and perhaps lazy, by not confirming it). If you disseminate a lie and you know it is one, that not only makes you a liar; it makes you a fraud. Jesus may have had very strong words about people who deliberately and viciously lie, but it hasn’t made much difference to those who zealously claim to be doing his work.
    Funny, I’d always thought that part of repentance was admitting you’d done wrong, and apologizing for it. That’s something I also haven’t seen from you here!

      Obama’s records have been sealed since 2007. A fraudulent BC was placed online in order to appease those who wanted to know the truth. Many experts said (and demonstrated) how the online BC had many layers to it. Such a thing would not happen with a photo of a paper BC.

      Regarding presidential eligibility questions, Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas is on video saying, “we’re evading that” one.

      So, what’s the truth?

      Maybe Wikileaks will reveal it some day. Meanwhile, the truth is being hidden, perhaps indefinitely. Will the records be unsealed after he’s out of office? Will the records be unsealed only after his death? We shall see, someday.

      The Bible tells us that there is nothing secret that will not (one day) be known.

      Mat 10:26

      “Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.

      Luk 8:17

      “For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.

      Luk 12:2

      “For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.

      It’s only a matter of when what is covered will be revealed.

      So…nothing to say about Daniel Greenfield’s post, “You Are Being Lied To?” Careful…you will hate it!
