Because of its importance, freedom of the press was in the Bill of Rights as a part of the FIRST Amendment. That Amendment dealt with two important concerns, the first being spiritual, the second with government, secular matters. “… or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the PRESS, or of the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Pardon my capitalizing two words on my own for emphasis. Our press was taken over by enemies of our Constitution, those who plotted and implementation of our media so that the public could be deprived of the knowledge needed to keep it from enslavement.
It’s no secret that the American left hates the idea of free speech for all. They believe that that part of the First Amendment only applies to those advocating or advancing the progressive agenda; the second a conservative speaks out, they are either viciously attacked, silenced, or both. The new global fight against “fake news” gives the left the perfect excuse to suppress right-of-center speech.
Correctiv is a nonprofit organization based in Germany that seeks to “give citizens access to information,” according to their website. They go on to say that they want to “uncover abuses of power and effectively strengthen our democracy,” which requires “investigative journalists” and “informed citizens.”
Now, the organization is working with Facebook to censor fake news. The problem? Correctiv is funded by none other than liberal billionaire George Soros. (RELATED: Read about how Facebook conspired with fact checkers to influence France’s upcoming election)
