I find it rich that the mainstream media, who’ve been publishing horseshit articles and airing government sponsored propaganda for decades, now take issue with alleged ‘fake news’ sites and have lobbied both Twitter and Google to take punitive action against them. The problem with labeling a site as ‘fake’ is the fact that a human being would have to be the one to make the label. If we start to censor websites based upon the accuracy of their reporting, then free speech will be eliminated in one fell swoop from the internet.
Who would make such a determination? It would equate to a witch hunt with both left and right wing idealogues gunning after one another — aiming to destroy each other.

Here’s Paul Joseph Watson completely destroying the narrative.
Bear in mind, the media has lost all credibility. They cannot compete with independent news sites that aren’t beholden to politicians and corporate interests. Therefore, the only logical thing to do, instead of making their organizations great again, is to work towards censoring and/or removing ‘fake news’ sites from the internet.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
