The time has come for the blogger experiment to end. The era of fake news is now behind us. We needed the false election of Trump, who stole votes from Hillary Clinton, via a crafty network of FAKE NEWS blogs, a highly sophisticated Facebook analytics ad campaign, and Russian bots and hacks, to fix the sickness of the internet — which is freedom of speech.
Over in China, they don’t fall for the nonsensical argument of MUH free speech. They simply reject it and punish anyone who tries to access information that isn’t approved by the government. While we cannot do that on the surface, since we’re still pretending to be an open and free society, we can easily accomplish this by making our tech monopolies implement policies that do the exact same thing as communist China.
For example, Google just announced they are launching a new monetization model for participating news agencies to push back against fake news. If you aren’t approved by Google, you cannot participate.
The initiative, announced Tuesday, will offer publications another monetization model online called Subscribe with Google, as well as work with established universities and groups to combat misinformation. It will also introduce an open-source tool called Outline, which will make it easier for news organizations to set up secure access to the internet for their journalists.
Google said it was committing $300 million over the next three years to the project, though it did not elaborate on how the resources would be spent. The company said it paid $12.6 billion to news organizations and drove 10 billion clicks a month to their websites for free last year.
Subscribe with Google will make it easier for readers to pay for content from news organizations that have agreed to partner with the company. FT.com and The Washington Post are among the launch partners, though Google has not yet named a full list.
The company is also testing a “Propensity to Subscribe” feature using its artificial intelligence, which will let companies know which consumers are likely to pay for their products. A new News Consumer Insights dashboard will further analyze readers for subscription opportunities.
Google will also create the Disinfo Lab with Harvard’s Kennedy School aimed at clarifying misinformation during elections and breaking news moments. It will also launch MediaWise, an organization in conjunction with the Poynter Institute, Stanford University and the Local Media Association, which will work to develop digital literacy for young viewers.
On paper, the idea of boosting traditional news organizations with strong editorial boards is a good idea — since they’re professional journalists with experience and know-how. The only problem with them, of course, is their reputation — which is widely viewed as biased and often times derided as propaganda for leftists policies on a global scale, especially in America. One thing is clear: on almost every social media platform, and now Google itself, there is a major push to demonetize and penalize any opinions that aren’t in concert with the prevailing opinions of the main stream media.
Welcome to your new happy world.

A man has been convicted in a UK court of making a joke that was deemed "grossly offensive". If you don't believe in a person's right to say things that you might find "grossly offensive", then you don't believe in Freedom of Speech.

While awaiting sentencing, Court has ordered that I meet with a court social worker for an assessment as to whether or not a Restriction Of Liberty Order will be placed on me. This would involve a GPS tracking device being attached to me and me being placed under house arrest.
