Channel 4 War on 'Fake News', Forgets Own Alt Reality Propaganda Broadcasting

Politics / Mainstream Media Feb 02, 2017 - 07:37 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

Apparently Channel 4 is going to go to war against 'Fake News' next week with the likes of "i know nothing" Jon Snow fronting mocumentaries of the 'Fake News' of 2016. Don't get me wrong I love watching John Snow, it's about as close as the mainstream press ever gets close to a dose of reality from within their Left-Right political spectrum that they have been stuck in since the broadcast channels first started appearing in the 1970's. Since which time nothing much has changed, in that they fail to realise that the likes of Channel 4, BBC inhabit their own liberal alt-reality that each year reinforces the delirium perpetuated on themselves and the general population.


Which is why the missed the point that Trump winning the US election was by far more probable than Hillary winning.

Which is why the missed the point that the people of Britain voting for Brexit was a far more probable outcome than REMAIN winning the EU Referendum

Which is why the missed the point that the Conservatives winning an 2015 outright election victory was for several years a far more probable outcome than a Labour winning or another hung parliament.

Whilst they also mostly missed that Scotland voting to REMAIN within the UK was by far the more probable outcome than voting for Independence in September 2014.

I could go on, but the message should becoming CLEAR that the mainstream press lives in their OWN fake news al-reality left / right spectrum bubble, and the only response that the likes of Channel 4 are capable of is to produce mocumentaries as they die a slow death!

There is only ONE mechanism that can result realising that which is the most probable outcome.

REPEAT AFTER ME - THERE IS ONLY ONE MECHANISM THAT CAN RESULT in REALISING THAT WHICH IS THE MOST PROBABLE OUTCOME!

PROFIT OR LOSS, PAIN OR GAIN. All else is bullshit! That is the only mechanism that can focus one's attention towards reality. A mechanism that is devoid in the mainstream press where journalists inhabit a fantasy world of repeatedly suffering collective amnesia to that which has gone before for they are NO CONSEQUENCES FOR MISSING the likes of BREXIT OR TRUMP! NONE!

LISTEN and LEARN! Else you will waste another 40 years on BULLSHIT!

Instead of FACT or FICTION , FAKE or REAL, THINK in terms of PROBABILITY! Which requires black a white mechanism to test against which is PROFIT OR LOSS. There is no amnesia as the likes of Channel 4 News suffers that is thrown itself into anti fake news crusade. It's simple, if you are RIGHT then you will PROFIT from trading positions leveraged to a forecast outcome and if you are WRONG you will LOSE money on those trades, and hence the market WILL CONDITION TO FORGET WHAT YOU WANT TO HAPPEN IN FAVOUR OF THAT WHICH IS THE MOST PROBABLE. IT'S SIMPLE! Do this for everything and you will start to glimpse reality! and converge towards that which is the MOST PROBABLE and start to inhabit a world that is outside of the consensus view, outside of the the left / right political spectrum. You will become a PROBABILITY CONVERGING HUMAN MACHINE! THINKING DIFFERENTLY, ALT-PERCEPTION!

Something that the mainstream press will never get! and hence Channel 4's response to mock that which they ARE INCAPABLE OF UNDERSTANDING!

I would have said that MACHINE INTELLIGENCE could be the answer to our biased alt-reality media world i.e. by taking humans out of the loop which could result in that which is the MOST PROBABLE!

on, which should prove far more profitable then even usually accurate short-term trend forecasts, and perhaps may change the way some of you think i.e. in exponential terms.

I say could because there is a strong potential for AI just being used reinforce ALT-REALITY messages rather than to converge towards high probability which would mean being further detached from reality as population groups fragment into ever smaller alt-bubbles, so AI could and likely will have the opposite effect i.e. set the general population up for even BIGGER SUPRISES that will be reported on by the press as events that NO ONE SAW COMING!

Still I do enjoy watching John Snow, if only he would forget most of that which he has assumed to be true for the past 40 years!
