    So, the writers at the Washing Post want to censor other writers. Do you think that's right?

    Here's a few of the writers that the Washington Post thinks are "propaganda" or "fake" news sites.
    oftwominds.com - an excellent writer who weaves his thoughts in such a way as to give the readers an easy walk leading to his conclusions. If you want to persuade someone, this guy writes very well.
    zerohedge.com - a website that gathers others info and articles and republishes them at zero hedge. Way before the debacle of 2007/08, they were sending up glaring red flags as to the eventual debacle.
    Even Ron Paul is accused of being a propagandist!!
    You want government protection from this?

    I do not think it's right that you misreport news - I.E. fake news. WP never said to censor.  - ever.-where did you get censor from? You didn't you pulled it out of your angus. Total lying question.  Pointing out fake news it not the same as calling out that the news is fake!

      Well, when one liar *Washington Post" says another website is giving out false information, what is it? A promotion of "false" news?
      I know you you've got a brain, you can write. Why not use it and conclude that the goal is censorship? No other goal

    The board members of all of those six corporations are probably feeling a lot more anxious these days.  No longer is the 'News' as controllable as it used to be.   There was a time, I'd heard many years ago, when some thirty or so news editors dictated what the Western World would read about.   Not any more.  The Internet has arrived.

    The majority of people realize that now they can get much wider, more accurate ideas of what is happening all around the world by simply getting on The Web from time to time.   And getting virtually for free!

    "The times they are a'changing,"  And for the better - much better - I believe.   

    And as for 'Censorship,' the saying goes, "A person or a nation is as sick as they are secret."

      Tom,
      Well, stated.
      I'd also add that the U.S. Government feeds the mass media lies to sway public opinion towards a false narrative.
      Those on the internet do a great job of exposing the lies told by the U.S. government.
      Cheers

    The original "fake news" list was put out by a far left wing professor and includes every non-liberal news station, magazine and major website.

      It's crazy how the left is coming up with every excuse other than the fact that they themselves are to blame.
      So are the elites in the GOP.
      The hypocrisy and corruption have never been so blatant. The media and the elite in the parties are blind.
