A new agency - Global Engagement Center’s - job's to combat FAKE NEWS around the world. Good /bad?


The legislation to combat "fake" news is in the new The National Defense Authorization Act of 2017. This is for an agency that is supposed to combat the type of thing that we saw in the 2016 elections - crooked politicians, like hillary Hillary, trying to rig the primaries. pay for play at the Clinton Foundation. The problem with this is that the government is deciding what is "real", what is "fake" news. For example, the journalist who exposed fast and furious died broke and blacklisted, though his articles are true. The WMD's that weren't in Iraq wouldn't be exposed. Censorship good?

    So, you going to tell CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS to state they are entertaining and NOT giving out actual news?

    For example "Russia tried to sway the election in 2016" No facts to back it up. Opinions yes, but no facts.

    DNC facts show rigging of primary.

    So, does this mean that hillary killary's illness that was "fake " news that turned out to be real should have been stopped?

    Or the Fast and furious which was denied and then proven to be true?

    Why would lies from the government be OK?
