We’re hearing a lot these days about “misinformation,” and how those who question or contradict the official narrative are disseminating “misinformation.”
In fact, I noticed that my own blog here that I moved over to WordPress.com has on its visitor stats some visits that are referred from Google search, but no longer from Bing or DuckDuckGo. And then I learned that websites or blogs who see reduced traffic and nothing coming from Bing or DuckDuckGo may have been “deranked” or removed entirely from being indexed on those search engines.
The reason? Because of “misinformation,” i.e. information that contradicts or veers away from the official government narrative, or from “mainstream news sources.”
Like the New York Slimes? And the Washington Pest? And CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, Fox News? Those guardians of truth, who gave us “Trump-Russia collusions” for 4 years without evidence and that was totally debunked by the Mueller investigation?
Like all those in the “news” media who parroted government bureaucrats and “public health” “experts” claiming that staying indoors, shutting down businesses and schools and churches, and wearing oxygen-depriving suffocation muzzles were all necessary to “protect Grandma” from a bad cold/flu whose harm to people was about the equivalent of seasonal flu when the actual facts are told?
In the Covid scam, many government-pushed “official narrative” assertions were thoroughly debunked, especially by ME, as well as by Naomi Wolf, Alex Berenson, Steve Kirsch, Joseph Mercola, and many more. But sadly, those who contradict the official narrative, who bring up actual facts, data and real science and studies, are falsely labeled “conspiracy theorists” and falsely accused of giving “misinformation,” and are censored, de-platformed, and smeared by the government flunkies of corporate media, and social media and Big Tech.
A really good article this week on this kind of subject: In The “Fact Check” Scam, Paul Craig Roberts responds to the “fact checker” called “News Guard,” which is really The Official Narrative Guard. The “fact checker” says that because Roberts contradicts what the U.S. government asserts, therefore Roberts is giving so-called “misinformation.”
Last Monday I received an email from NewsGuard, “an independent organization that rates and reviews news outlets based on nine apolitical journalistic criteria.”
The analyst asked me to comment on two statements in my columns in which I am accused of “advancing false and unsupported claims.”
One false and and unsuopported claim is “a March 2022 article titled ‘Ukraine Hosted Illegal US Biowarfare Laboratories,’ repeated Russian and Chinese propaganda about the presence of U.S.-run bioweapons labs in Ukraine, which has been repeatedly debunked by fact-checking organizations and refuted by U.S. government officials.”
The alleged “fact checker’s” claim that I made a false and unsupported claim is incorrect for two reasons. One is the fact that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Defense Threat Reduction Agency produced official US government documents that state that the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, a component of the U.S. Department of Defense, funded anthrax laboratory activities in a Ukrainian biolab in 2018. The US government’s records also show over $11 million in funding for the Ukraine biolabs program in 2019. https://www.judicialwatch.org/dod-records-anthrax-lab/?utm_campaign=tipsheet&utm_term=members

Apparently, it never occurred to the dumbshit “fact checker” that relying on assurances from a proven liar such as the US government is no way to check a fact. How, “fact checker,” does the government refute its own admission? Notice also that the “fact checker” thinks that a statement by the Russian government is “unsupported,” but a statement by the US government is considered “supported.” How does this obvious bias serve to verify any fact?
The second reason the “fact checker” is incorrect indicates that the “fact checker” is incapable of understanding that to report what the Russian government claims to have discovered in Ukraine is not misinformation or propaganda. It is correct information reporting Russian claims. What we see here is a “fact checker” who thinks or has been trained to see any report, whether or not endorsed by the reporter, of an item in the “impermissible to be mentioned” category as a “false and unsupported claim.” In other words, all is false except official narratives.
Sadly, today’s “news” media and government-approved “fact-checkers” are extremely lazy-minded and dim-witted, and of course being authoritarian brainwashed robots makes it easy for them to obediently repeat word-for-word whatever “national security” apparatchiks or establishment medical officials tell them, without any checking, investigating and research on their part.
And, being said brainwashed robots, they are easily bamboozled and must promulgate their cult propaganda at all costs, certainly at the expense of the truth, that’s for sure.
