Why Alternative Media Won’t Lose To Controlled Media

The Hill released an article reflecting a perspective I had taken seven days prior, in our article on “fake news” and internet censorship. I concluded the article stating that “Both sides are guilty of bias, both push false and misleading narratives, but only one side is calling for internet censorship, only one side has unveiled an incredibly deceitful and destructive agenda.” Of course, I’m referring to the agenda of controlled media to discredit the alternative media as “fake news”.

The war between alternative and controlled media is very real but it’s already over, quite frankly. The alternative media and the movement, in general, have already captured the attention of the people. The left and its calls for censorship will not be tolerated for too long, although it may cause short-term issues. Authoritarianism always struggles to survive in the long run, though, even if successful in the short term.

The censoring of alternative media isn’t well-received by the youth, who distrusts the mainstream media and this will catch up to them.

Trust in the media ( mainstream media ) has dropped to an all-time low.

The Youths Distrust of Mainstream Media

“Older Americans are more likely than younger Americans to say they trust the media, but trust has declined among both age groups this year. Currently, 26% of those aged 18 to 49 (down from 36% last year) and 38% of those aged 50 and older (down from 45%) say they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media.” – Gallup

Trust in Mass Media, by Age

 

There is no reason to believe this trend won’t continue, especially with the popularity of alternative media skyrocketing in contrast to controlled media, which is only experiencing temporary surges.

The democratization of information has lead to the democratization of truth, therein lying the mainstream media’s inevitable demise.

Controlled media has already lost the youth, which created the necessity for alternative media and that necessity will drive the future of media focus and that’s why alternative media is more likely, in the long-run, to overtake the controlled media. However, efforts are being made to curve this phenomenon. For example, CNN recently purchased the social media app Beme, to cultivate the millennial audience. I am predicting that these type of efforts will ultimately fail and will not curve this trend because it does not provide a solution to the problem that created this trend, to begin with.

At some point, controlled media and all media, for that matter, will have to submit to a more informed age of individuals, who will be more capable of deciphering fact from fiction for themselves.

Reddit Forced to Ban PizzaGate Investigation By “Powerful Outside Influence”

Reddit has banned the PizzaGate subreddit, which was gaining thousands of subscribers a day, under the grounds that it has violated its terms of service agreement.

According to a moderator of r/uncensorednews and former moderator of r/PizzaGate, the PizzaGate subreddit was banned after outside influences forced the moderators of Reddit to shut down the PizzaGate investigation.

“As a previous moderator of /pizzagate, I’d like to say that we did absolutely everything we could to abide by the rules set forth on us by the admins.

No rules were intentionally broken nor did we try to ignore what they told us.

The pizzagate issue is a very sensitive topic and I don’t believe that this was not a clear conscious decision by the admins. After speaking with the rest of the pizzagate mod team, we strongly believe there was a very powerful outside influence which caused the subreddit to be shut down. We believe this due to some information we received outside of Reddit.”

According to another moderator, Reddit was pressured by external sources to shut the subreddit down.

“Amidst the cries of censorship, keep in mind that the admins are simply applying existing sitewide rules, and it’s more than likely that reddit (and its majority owner Avance Publications*) have been pressured from external sources, with threats of litigation, removal of advertising revenue, etc.”

If you do not know what PizzaGate is, do not Google it! You will be directed to completely biased sources that do not acknowledge key elements of the investigation and dismiss it as a conspiracy theory. Anyone in their right mind, who examines the evidence, couldn’t possibly conclude that these findings are normal and do not amount to a legitimate case for inquiry. That is not to say that the allegations are true but that they at least warrant investigation and that the findings are certainly abnormal.

You should research “PizzaGate” yourself before coming to any conclusions.

The PizzaGate investigation is migrating to Voat, a non-censorship alternative to Reddit.

Corporate & Political Interests Pushing Internet Censorship

Aaron Swarts, a co-founder of Reddit and activist who was bullied into committing suicide, warned us about social media companies pushing to censor the internet. His fear of censorship was not unwarranted as it’s already being planned by Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, and many other big movers and shakers of the digital media world.

Under the guise of protecting people from “fake news”, legitimate news sources that do not conform to the desired narrative of these corporate and political entities can be targeted and accused of illegitimacy.

These entities have witnessed the effectivity of censorship in China and other countries and want to slowly adopt the same type of censorship in the United States.

The most disturbing part of this push for censorship is that it’s clearly coming from leftist controlled groups that are blatantly combating the “far-right”. For example, in this New York Times article ( Facebook and the Digital Virus Called Fake News ), it’s painting an obvious narrative. They’re pushing the narrative that the “Far-Right” is spreading fake news stories, that these people are scammers, and that they are a problem that must be handled.

The obvious irony of these media groups targeting “fake news” is that most if not all of these groups are undeniably guilty of pushing fake news. In fact, former U.S. representative, Ron Paul, took the liberty of exposing many of them. Ron Paul’s list features journalists and media outlets that are guilty of collusion ‘fake news’ revealed by WikiLeaks. For example, WikiLeaks revealed the collusion between Democrats and CNN, as well as many other media outlets which are listed below.

 

Picture

 

For the purpose of clarification, both Left and Right-Wing media are guilty of creating fake news. Both sides are guilty of bias, both push false and misleading narratives but only one side is calling for internet censorship, only one side has unveiled an incredibly deceitful and destructive agenda.
