Evil-Facebook

 

Facebook now removes all comments with links to SOURCES. They mark any comment with a link (that I’ve posted, anyway) as “SPAM.” It’s not spam. It’s the source that destroys the FAKE NEWS the poster is peddling.

It is now impossible to refute garbage fake news with facts, as you cannot link to good sources. Facebook has become an insular hotbed of stupidity and propaganda.

You’re not going to fucking believe this one. Are you ready?

The FBI argues in court that it’s concerned about the privacy rights of Khalid Sheikh Muhammad, and that’s the real reason it won’t release information about the 9/11 plot.

I shit you not.

Appeal: How much information about 9/11 must FBI share with public?

“Only then did the FBI locate and produce records responsive to the Bulldog’s requests, but in dribs and drabs, spread across a year of litigation. Rather than withhold information judiciously, the FBI redacted every word for which it could make a colorable argument – even if that meant claiming a record could not be released because its disclosure would constitute an unwarranted invasion of the privacy of a senior member of al Qaeda,” the brief says.

The referenceas to the FBI’s assertion of privacy rights for alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and fellow “high-value” Guantanamo detainee Mustafa al-Hawsawi in withholding PowerPoint slides detailing their credit card information…

Other pages from the overview also were redacted, including slides about the funding of the 9/11 attacks – information of keen interest to the families of 9/11 victims seeking to hold Saudi Arabia responsible in federal civil court in New York.

…2012 FBI report that shows agents and prosecutors in New York were then actively exploring filing charges against a suspectfor providing material support for two of the five 9/11 terrorists – Saudis Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar —  who crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon.

The FBI redacted the report citing national security, privacy and other reasons.

Not everything there is fake, but the sites should be considered untrustworthy. Always trace sources back to ORIGINAL.

UPDATE: The list is gone. The author pulled everything, probably under legal threats for libel?

Her list had problems, no methodology, no examples, nothing scientific or provable.

Case of James Risen sets up showdown over reporter rights
‘chills journalistic activity’

The US fascist war on journalism ramps up.  The empire is now rapidly descending toward totalitarianism and arbitrary use of force against any and all enemies, everywhere, even at the New York Times.

Corporate Media’s Dubious Syria Coverage

A more careful LexisNexis database search for “Syria,” “Assad,” “government” and the phrases “activists say” or “activists report” in the subject headings or text of news items for conventional print outlets indexed for June 1, 2012 to February 7, 2014 yields a data set consisting of close to 2,000 pieces—1,638 newspaper articles, 205 BBC broadcast transcripts, and 148 web-based articles.[6] A total 134 articles appeared in the New Zealand Herald, 52 in the Washington Post, 38 in the New York Times, 30 in the Financial Times, and 28 in the International New York Times.
