How We Ended Up Here: A Brief History Of "Fake News", And The Role Of FaceBook

"FaceBook acts as a sovereign power unto itself. It outsources censorship to sites like Politifact, a site with clear policy biases. Hoping that if it does this outsourcing, people won't notice FB's total control over our free speech commons via The Algorithm. But fundamentally, such control is not consistent with a democracy, with a free press, or with freedom of association."

‘False Narratives of a New Cold War’ – Insightful Interview With Professor of Russian Studies

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:
We’re shut out now. There hasn’t been an op-ed in The New York Times or Washington Post editorial pages arguing that the United States is at least equally to blame for this new Cold War crisis. They simply will not accept those articles…So this is the problem. In a democracy we fight through discourse. If you can’t get to the mainstream media and make the argument, then there’s no way of slowing the drift toward catastrophe.
– Stephen F. Cohen, Professor Emeritus of Russian studies at Princeton University and New York University
Stephen Cohen just recorded an incredibly trenchant interview regarding the extreme dangers of the recent explosion in Russia hysteria with Brian Lehrer on WNYC.

Associated Press Will Partner with Facebook to Flag ‘Fake News’

by Lauretta Brown, CNSnews:
The Associated Press announced Thursday that it will join Facebook to help “identify and debunk” news stories being shared online that are false.
According to the AP announcement, “when AP or another participating fact-check organization flags a piece of content as fake, Facebook users will see that it has been disputed and there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining why. That flag will follow the content if a Facebook user chooses to share it.”
“AP has long done some of the most thorough fact-checking in the news business,” said Sally Buzbee, AP’s incoming executive editor. “This initiative is a natural extension of that tradition, and of the AP’s long-standing role setting the standards for accuracy and ethics in journalism.”

The Thought Police Are Here to Save You From “Fake News” – Nathan McDonald

by Nathan McDonald, Sprott Money:
A term you heard used over and over again during the election, especially by the alt-left: “Fact check”, “fact check”, “fact check”.
This term was thrown around wildly and used as a weapon by Hillary and her supporters as it was becoming increasingly more clear that they were losing the information war, a war that has been fought throughout the ages and will be fought as long as liberty lovers are willing to take a stand for what it right.
They began to use this term, because it was becoming glaringly obvious that the once mighty Mainstream Media was losing its grip over the masses and they were having less and less effect.

China Suffers Failed Treasury Bill Auction

from ZeroHedge:
One day after China’s regulator halted trading in bond futures for the first time ever, Beijing suffered another catalytic bond-market event overnight when it failed to sell all the Treasury Bills on auction Friday, for the first time in almost 18 months, as bids fell short of minimum requirements, according to traders required to bid at the auction.
As BBG reported overnight, the Ministry of Finance sold only 9.57 billion yuan ($1.38 billion) of 182-day bills in a planned 10 billion yuan sale, and 10.85 billion yuan of 91-day notes in a planned 12 billion yuan sale, according to a statement from the bond clearing house. What is notable, is that the Bills on offer paid a hefty yield: the 182-day bills sold for 2.9565%, while the 91-day bills sold for 2.8991%.
In other words mainland bond traders are concerned that short-term China rates could spike substantially in the next 3-6 months.
