Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter were the first to launch "fact check" programs that were supposedly needed to help improve "content creation." Then fact checking spread to the corporate-controlled media and even the government itself.
Now, fact checking and the censorship it brings about are center stage in the free speech debate as many have now begun asking the question: What about the First Amendment?
Thanks to the release of the Twitter Files and other Freedom of Information Act-requested (FOIA) materials, we know proof-positive that dark money is behind the funding of fact checking – and that dark money is often funneled through the government.
"These entities were funded either directly or indirectly by government or by other dark-money sources as quid pro quos for other relationships they had cultivated with interested parties," says Jeffrey A. Tucker, writing for The Epoch Times.
"In other words, they were not some independent, science-based entities at all but rather hit squads with a hard political agenda."

In an attempt to disguise the true censorship nature of fact checking, the Censorship Industrial Complex essentially laundered its true agenda through multiple layers of deception.
"Government wants to censor but cannot so it turns to the social-media company to do the dirty work," Tucker adds. "To make this hand-in-glove racket less obvious, the companies would outsource to a fact-checking organization, making the lines of control even more blurry."
Interestingly, you will be hard-pressed as of this writing to even find a fact check on the various sites that had previously promoted and even bragged about it. Suddenly, nobody wants to be associated with fact checking anymore now that the whole thing is being exposed and dismantled as a scam.
The recent exposure of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) fudging of covid death numbers, as well as true cause of death on official death certificates – the CDC scrubbed the word "vaccine" and blamed deaths on other things – has driven another nail in the coffin of fact checking.
For years, we were told that the CDC was trustworthy and reputable, and that its methods and policies ensured truthful information. Now that this, too, has been dashed, what facts are there even left to check?
Everything the CDC has said and done with regards to "testing," self-isolation, mask-wearing, and jab-getting has been a total and complete lie, we now know. And yet, this was the very agency telling us that we were dealing with "the worst pandemic in 100 years," which was also a lie.
"Here's what I've concluded. Fact-check false really means: likely true but not what you are allowed to believe," is how Tucker puts it, he being a prominent enough figure on his own to have received his own fact check warnings and emails.
"At this point, it's reasonable to assume that nearly every official source on the virus was wrong or lying for years now. You probably know this. In any case, my intuition here is that we are only at the beginning of discovery of the fullness of the duplicity. The stakes are very high: American liberty suffered a grave blow during the COVID response. If the reason wasn't the virus, what was it then?"
