The more transparency Donald Trump wants to give and the alternative media puts it out there, the more that attack on them like the president occurs. Looking at the list of sites that have been removed, it would seem that there are certain groups the “TRUTH” is wanted to be told. Alternative media is making men and women aware of their actions no matter where they work and isn’t that a good thing??? The reason for the removal is because shared information is making a difference and more people are waking up and getting connected to the “TRUTH.” The Kardashian ass and sports isn’t getting the numbers it used to and alternative media has a lot to do with it. Bringing together the stories and happenings from around the world is what mixed media is about and what the big social media sites helped the investigative journalist to do.
“TRUTH” goes on and many are questioning…
Is the Purge of Independent Media a Coordinated Attack by the Military Industrial Complex?
By Derrick Broze
Victims of Facebook’s most recent purge should not forget the connections between the social media giant and the Western Military-Industrial Complex.
On Thursday, Facebook announced they were unpublishing, or purging, over 500 pages and 200 accounts who are accused of spreading political spam. Several of these pages and writers were also removed from Twitter on the same day.
“Today, we’re removing 559 Pages and 251 accounts that have consistently broken our rules against spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior,” Facebook stated in a blog post. Facebook states that the people behind this alleged spam “create networks of Pages using fake accounts or multiple accounts with the same names” and “post the same clickbait posts in dozens of Facebook Groups.”
Essentially, Facebook is accusing these pages of writing articles related to politics and then using the social media platform to…. post the articles in as many places as possible to reach as many people as possible. Hardly dangerous or scary stuff. However, these actions are in violation of Facebook’s Terms of Service. Facebook also accused the pages and accounts of using their fake accounts to generate fake likes and shares which may artificially inflate their reach and mislead people about their popularity. According to Facebook, “This activity goes against what people expect on Facebook, and it violates our policies against spam.”
Facebook also stated that “sensational political content” from across the political spectrum is being used to “build an audience and drive traffic to their websites, earning money for every visitor to the site.” Again, this does not qualify as dangerous or threatening activity. This is a standard practice for most media outlets who are trying to earn revenue to pay writers, editors, social media managers, etc. It is true that some of the pages on this list (see below for a current list) have indeed used clickbait headlines or even posts that are likely untrue. However, the list also includes legitimate independent news outlets such as The Anti-Media, The Free Thought Project, Cop Block, and Police the Police, which focused on countering mainstream and establishment narratives related to politics and police.
