In addition to tagging all independent news outlets as “unreliable” while propping up establishment fake news with official “verified” symbols, the new Microsoft “NewsGuard” web browser plugin is also steering advertisers away from any content that supports President Trump in an attempt to financially suffocate to death all pro-Trump websites.
According to Breitbart News, the neoconservative-run NewsGuard now has a built-in blacklist of online publishers that the information police have deemed as inappropriate for advertisers. Included on this blacklist are both conservative and left-wing websites that aren’t controlled by the deep state’s ministry of propaganda.
Though NewsGuard claims to be a “non-partisan” filtering service that simply aims to help web users find “accurate” news content on the web, we recently exposed the plug-in for having ties to a propaganda public relations firm known as Qorvis Group that works on behalf of Saudi Arabia to spread fake news about how the Islamic regime supposedly has many “shared values” with the United States.
“NewsGuard, the news-filtering browser extension recently partnered with Microsoft and run by neoconservatives, Obama-Clinton alumni, and other assorted Trump haters, has advised advertisers to withdraw their business from websites on its blacklist of ‘unreliable’ news websites – a list that includes Breitbart News, The Drudge Report, and the Daily Mail,” reports Breitbart News.
“NewsGuard’s tactic is similar (to) the one used by far-left smear peddlers Sleeping Giants, whose mission is to spread baseless accusations of racism and white supremacy to the advertisers of pro-Trump media outlets in order to put them out of business and silence their voice. Two of the sites on NewsGuard’s list, Breitbart News and the Daily Mail, are also prominent targets of Sleeping Giants.”
The weaponization of NewsGuard and other anti-free speech deep state propaganda tools comes as Obama administration funding for government-sponsored fake news expires. As revealed by Alex Jones of Infowars, Obama slipped secret funding into the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that essentially subsidized the propagation of fake news, which ever since has been used as a psychological weapon against the American people.
“Jones connected the dots, from the Smith Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, which passed with the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act and ended the ban on using government made propaganda on American citizens, to the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act, which began actively funding propaganda at the outset of the Trump administration,” writes Angela Eckhardt for Western Free Press.
“That funding ended in Dec. 2018, Jones points out, which is what may have triggered mass MSM (mainstream media) layoffs.”
The layoffs that Eckhardt is referring to now number over 2,100, and include “journalists” from far-left fake news outlets like HuffPost, AOL, Yahoo News, and BuzzFeed News.
What this all suggests is that Obama had been funding fake news with taxpayer dollars throughout much of his time in the White House – fake news that divided the country along the lines of race, as well as fueled extreme levels of political animosity not seen since the Civil War.
After Hillary Clinton lost the election, and before Donald Trump was inaugurated, Obama signed into law the 2017 NDAA, which gave one final cash infusion to the fake news propagandists – but that cash infusion recently ran out, just as fake news outlets everywhere have been laying off their fake news writers in droves.
“Funded or not, what is set in motion will continue unless it is exposed and countered,” warns Eckhardt.
