The perils of mainstream media and their love affair with FAKE NEWS!



The new year of 2019 we were greeted with news reports that Olivia Newtown-John only has weeks to live post battling cancer.
Many people took to social media to post messages of sadness and well thoughts to Olivia.
A couple of days later, Olivia Newton-John herself came out and said this is untrue saying that she is alive and well.


Is this the work of FAKE NEWS?

Mainstream media across Australia all reported that Olivia Newton-John was on death’s door and everyone who read that believed this was the case and reacted on social media.  One cannot blame people for believing such fake news as Olivia has been tackling cancer for some time and when it is constantly in your face that she is knocking on deaths door, you start to believe it.

The big question that needs to be asked is, if mainstream media can produce this fake news and people fall for it, what other fake news is being produced that people are believing in?

The US economy? I mean we are getting conflicting reports on the US economy, one report saying the economy is booming with increased economic growth and jobs the next minute we are seeing stocks plummet and business struggling due to tariffs and trade wars between China and US. 
There is no doubt about it, when it comes to Trump, the media goes into a frenzy and misreports Trumps agenda.

Closer to home, the St Kilda Beach rally was portrayed by the media as a neo nazi love fest. The mainstream media posted photo’s of angry white men with tattoo’s performing the Nazi Salute. What they did not report was that there were many Vietnamese protesters at this rally as well as ordinary men and women and families who are concerned about the rising crime rate caused by Sudanese migrants.
All mainstream media outlets portrayed this rally in a negative way which of course will result in majority of people condemning the meeting without really knowing the full facts.

There is a simple rule when reading or watching the news. Don’t believe it. You got to remember that the media is always owned by someone (including the Government ie ABC & BBC). The media are a powerful tool to control the masses. Sure, if you read something or watch something, take it on board but then do your own research into it. Otherwise, like most people who reacted to Olivia Newton-Johns reports, you’ll look like a dickhead!

The collusion to stifle FREE SPEECH is real and happening!

Alex Jones is not my cup of tea. For those who don’t know Alex Jones he is the voice behind InfoWars – an alt-media outlet for those who don’t fit into the mainstream media narrative. Alex Jones has some bizarre conspiracy theories such as believing the government is making frogs gay or Michelle Obama is actually a man (although that could explain a few things). The fact is, Jones is an entertaining character and whilst I didn’t listen to him, the stuff that I did hear was actually amusing. InfoWars do produce some good personalities such as Paul Joseph Watson. Watson, who has a Youtube page, is very good at articulating arguments for the right, he breaks down the issue and uses logic to make his argument.

Apple have recently announced that they have BANNED Jone’s podcasts on their app. Facebook, Spotify and Youtube have also jumped on the BANNING bandwagon and axed the InfoWar giant from it’s platform citing that he goes against their policy on “HATE SPEECH.” This ought to be concerning for anyone who goes against the ‘mainstream’ narrative. The fact we have seen major globalist organisations such as Apple, Facebook and Youtube stifle free speech clearly indicates that they are concerned that people are actually listening to alt-media sources. Given the rise of anti globalist politicans such as Donald Trump, Nigel Farage and Gert Wilders, it is no suprise that the globalist elite are wanting to rid social media or free media of alt-media sources.

Paul Joseph Watson has just released a video on Youtube describing this action by these tech companies as ‘the purge.’ He goes on to state that all within 12 hours of each other these companies have colluded to shut down InfoWars. He pointed that that no tech company gave any specific reasons as to why they shut Jones down, all they stated was that he goes against their policy on “HATE SPEECH.” Watson also goes on to state that this has occurred three months before the mid terms commence. Coincidence? 

There has often been debates over President Trumps tweets, some on the left want him banned from tweeting, Trump himself doesn’t trust ‘fakenews’ outlets such as CNN to provide a fair and balance report therefore Trump thrives on alt-media outlets and has embraced the use of social media to get his message out. This action by these major tech companies have set a precedence to ban anyone who they feel breaches the ‘mainstream’ narrative. Who will be next to be on the chopping block? Rebel Media who house Lauren Southern or The Daily Wire who champion Ben Shapiro?

We live in a modern society which even George Orwell couldn’t fictionalise. The growing pains of supressing free speech is becoming terminal. Instead of banning things we do not like, we need to confront it head on. Its the same with Alex Jones, just because you do not like him does not mean we should ban him. If the Globalists want to defeat him then argue against him but we all know that this has nothing to do with disagreeing with Jones. Its far more sinister, it is a plan to manipulate free speech to ensure they control the masses.
