Channel 4 War on 'Fake News' Ends - The New News Age

Politics / Mainstream Media Feb 12, 2017 - 10:11 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

Channel 4 is ending its week long war on 'fake news'. Whilst I watched the 'fake news' sections on Channel 4 News. However I found their mocumentaries mind numbingly stupid! All that time and effort, all that programming and they missed the OBVIOUS! in that its mostly ALL FAKE NEWS, it always has been since even before the first printing presses started running, and the proper name for alt 'fake news' is CONSPIRACY THEORY! There have ALWAYS BEEN conspiracy theories of this that or the other as labeled by the establishment media of the time that tends to persist for decades until when a conspiracy theory may be proven to true! Though I prefer 'most probable' over the word 'truth', because it is all propaganda spun by the elite of the day where the stories periodically go through revisions as required.


So Channel 4 wasted a week hunting down fake news peddlers, going into deepest Hungary and slapping the label of 'fake news' onto any conspiracy theories and propaganda they found. Repeatedly warning of the dangers of 'fake news' that apparently delivered the likes of Brexit and Trump neither of which the likes of Channel 4 News saw coming, that says it all! No concept of probability just propaganda. And what is the purpose of propaganda ? CONTROL!

Here's a taste of Channel 4's 'fake news' programming:

As I stated right before channel 4's 'fake news week began that Channel 4 are best served by looking in the mirror at themselves and then forgetting everything they understand to be true for at least the past 40 years! The mainstream news media is part of a system of control so as to reinforce the illusion of democracy and freedom, that whilst within the system few are able to recognise but when looking outwards at other systems such as the Soviet Union are blatantly obvious that they are not free societies, regardless of that which their media peddles!

You want to know when fake news can really be dangerous? Then go and watch the mainstream presses coverage in he run up to the Iraq war ! THAT WAS DEADLY FAKE NEWS! That the people of Britain saw through and marched through London in the largest protest march in British history. That Tony Blair's FAKE LABOUR government IGNORED! That is but one example of FAKE NEWS mainstream media reporting for which we are still paying the price of today!

And the list is endless for instance most of that which goes by label of HISTORY IS FAKE NEWS! after all they are just HI-STORIES. Shakespeare's plays are FAKE NEWS! Richard the Third as he is portrayed is FAKE NEWS propaganda instigated by the Tudor usurpers who overthrew Richard the Third the then legitimate King of England and ever since the establishment has spun 'fake news'. This has been repeated countless times both before and since Richard the Third i.e. William of Orange's invasion of Britain comes to mind, portrayed as the Glorious Revolution - FAKE NEWS, instead it was an invasion of a foreign power that over threw by force the legitimate King of England (UK), James the 2nd. Since which a fake history has been spun and peddled to this very day! The truth is that Britain was INVADED in 1688 by the Dutch William of Orange, so all of the history books that state that Britain has not been invaded since 1066 are WRONG! This is just one example of FAKE NEWS, FAKE HI-STORY!

Virtually ever major story that the media peddles tends to be FAKE NEWS! Which is something that the mainstream press not only will never admit to but probably don't even realise that much of that which they peddle is FAKE NEWS! They are in fact Emperors without clothes that the people are increasingly seeing through, and all that which the likes of Channel 4 and other mainstream propaganda broadcasters are doing in their war on 'fake news' is to represent the death throws of a dieing industry as the people now have alternative mechanisms for concocting their own alt-realities on social media all WITHOUT being FED stories by the establishment media. There is a name for this it's called FREEDOM! So you see the mainstream media is so lost in its alt-reality, in its fictional stories to justify THEIR CONTROL of what YOU THINK! And so are incapable of realising that what we are witnessing with social media is people breaking free from the mainstream media's mechanisms for control, a manifestation of FREEDOM! Of which 'fake news' is an EFFECT, whilst the cause IS the mainstream media's decades of attempting to CONTROL the people through 'fake news'!

My video series in the Trump Reset covers aspects of the alt-reality that we have been living in for at least the past 40 years that the likes of social media offered ordinary people a means of attaining freedom from.

The Trump Reset - 2 The Putin Doctrine

Though without a mechanism to test the reliability of may be just as inaccurate as the mainstream press tends to be, but it is THEIR reality and NOT that of the elites, the individuals choices resulting in algorithms delivering that which they seek rather than that which the establishment elite chooses to peddle to the masses.

New News Age

We are at the dawn of a NEW AGE. That of PROBABILITY driven news which is what the Market Oracle seeks to be! No Left or Right spin, rather that which is the most probable! TESTED through the mechanism of market positions resulting in profit or less, which ensures personal biases tend to be diminished as the market punishes arrogance, hence why whilst I am no friend of the Trump Delirium President, nevertheless I forecast that the opinion polls and pundits were all wrong and that Trump would win in countless articles and videos in the run up to November 8th vote as being the most probable election outcome, which was capitalised on through market positions with Betfair.

PROBABILITY driven conclusions will increasingly replace mainstream news media, whilst 'fake news' / 'conspiracy theories' have always existed and thus will continue to exist so they are not going to go away and likely are being overblown in importance by the dieing mainstream media that is lashing out in all directions for targets and reasons to try and reinforce their own crumbling edifice as they hope their readers and viewers forget that they never saw Brexit or Trump coming and neither will much of that which is to unfold over the coming years.

And lastly I've waited until near the end to mention the greatest fake news story of them all - THE GOSPELS!

For more on that which is the most probable see my video series - the Illusion of Democracy and Freedom -
