Microsoft’s “NewsGuard” tool to ‘weed out fake news’ is controlled entirely by Deep State Operatives

Over the past two years, major government-supporting media have (simultaneously, it seems) pronounced a need to cleanse their platforms of “fake news.”

This push seems to correspond with Deep State investigations into “Russia collusion,” marginalization of Julian Assange and Wikileaks and a general effort by the establishment to limit public discourse to the confines of “mainstream news.”

Major tech platforms such as Youtube, Google, Twitter and Facebook have culled and censored hundreds of libertarian and right-of-center content sources. Much of this self-censorship seems, on the surface, to be against the self-interests of the platforms themselves. When Youtube banned Alex Jones Infowars programming, it was banning THE MOST VISITED CHANNEL ON YOUTUBE.

Now, Breitbart News is investigating Microsoft’s latest “anti-fake-news” operation (which Microsoft calls “NewsGuard”).

It turns out NewsGuard’s ‘experts’ on identifying ‘fake news’ are all ENTRENCHED DEEP STATE OPERATIVES who have been caught spreading fake news themselves.

NewsGaurd has banned many barely-edgy content sources as purveyors of fake news, including even Drudge Report, Breitbart and the Daily Mail.

Most mainstream outlets, even those with a record of publishing fake news, are rated as reliable sources of information.

According to Bretibart, “NewsGuard has also rated stories which have been proven to be fake news as trustworthy, while rating the fact-checking articles of those news pieces as untrustworthy.”

As reported by Breitbart News’ John Nolte, some fake news stories rated as trustworthy by NewsGuard include, “Rolling Stone’s 2014 hoax about a gang rape at the University of Virginia (UVA),” “BuzzFeed’s debunked lie about President Trump telling his then-personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress,” “The Washington Post’s debunked hoax about Russia hacking Vermont’s utility grid,” “The lie about first lady Melania Trump being an illegal alien,” and “The lie about Trump changing the name of Black History Month.”

“NewsGuard’s board is packed with neoconservative figures and former U.S. intelligence operatives, most of whom are alumni from the administrations of George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama.”

One member of NewsGuard’s advisory board, General Michael Hayden, previously worked as a National Security adviser where he argued incessantly for greater government surveillance over the U.S. population.
