Hunter Biden prompts sharp piece on laptop revamp ‘attack

In terms of this New York Times Hunter Biden’s laptop emails whispered in print on page A-20 that the “fact checking” / censorship complex needed to be verified. Jacob Siegel of Tablet Magazine wrote a tart piece entitled “Invasion of the Fact-Checkers” that explored how private media power and Democrats shut down stories they didn’t like.

Shortly after the first report of the laptop, The New York TimesIts Kevin Rouge politely admits that misinformation journalists like him played a role in pressuring technology companies to “take more and faster action to prevent the spread of false or misleading information … to prevent a repeat of the 2016 defeat.”

And it works! Only it turns out, as The New York Times Now admits that the silent original reporting by fact-checkers was accurate.

Siegel accurately describes how flexible the police can be:

An issue was settled this month with a single link and a hand-picked quote from the truthful Federal Bureaucrat X or Noble Ruling Party Flash Puppet Y. With the various links a few months later if the political climate changes, it corrects. Past record without acknowledging errors of judgment or truth.

This exact scene has been seen dozens of times in just two years since the epidemic began. Remember in May 2020, when Donald Trump said that he was “confident” that vaccines would be available by the end of the year? NBC has verified the claim and determined that “experts say it needs a ‘miracle’ to be accurate.” That October, when Trump announced that a vaccine was imminent, an organization called Science Feedback, one of Facebook’s official fact-checking partners, announced that “a massive Covid-19 vaccine is not expected before mid-2021.”

In fact, the vaccine rollout began two months later, in December 2020. Since then, the U.S. fact-checking complex has spent a great deal of time and energy trying to connect “Trump,” “Trump supporters,” “regions of the country that have supported Donald. The reason being less than that is because the vaccine was shifted from the symbol of Trump’s clownish grandiocity and the symbol of wisdom of his opponents, the guardian of science.

We have a special hatred for “fact checkers” who insult predictions about the future (such as when a vaccine will be available) as if it were “information” that could be “checked.”

Siegel accuses fact-checkers of being Democrats’ collaborators and enforcers of the unpopular idea of ​​awakening: “Another driving force behind the growth of the fact-checking complex is the need to adhere to progressive ideas that cannot survive. Their own.” Exhibit A is the fact cops coming down on the Washington Free Beacon revealing that the government is financing “safe” crack pipes.

Siegel concludes:

My point here is that it is not a conspiracy or an accident to go along with the veracity of government power. A 2018 report from Columbia Journalism Review “Lessons of Platform-Publisher Collaboration as a Facebook and News Outlet Team to Fight Misinformation.” It also issued a warning:

“If Facebook were to create a completely new, highly powerful, and completely private information-testing partnership with publicly-inspired news organizations, it would be virtually impossible to know in whose interest and in what dynamics our public communication systems are operating.”
