How a NeoCon-Backed “Fact Checker” Plans to Wage War on Independent Media

Mint Press News – by Whitney Webb

MINNEAPOLIS — Soon after the social media “purge” of independent media sites and pages this past October, a top neoconservative insider — Jamie Fly — was caught stating that the mass deletion of anti-establishment and anti-war pages on Facebook and Twitter was “just the beginning” of a concerted effort by the U.S. government and powerful corporations to silence online dissent within the United States and beyond.   

While a few, relatively uneventful months in the online news sphere have come and gone since Fly made this ominous warning, it appears that the neoconservatives and other standard bearers of the military-industrial complex and the U.S. oligarchy are now poised to let loose their latest digital offensive against independent media outlets that seek to expose wrongdoing in both the private and public sectors.

As MintPress News Editor-in-Chief Mnar Muhawesh recently wroteMintPress was informed that it was under review by an organization called Newsguard Technologies, which described itself to MintPress as simply a “news rating agency” and asked Muhawesh to comment on a series of allegations, several of which were blatantly untrue. However, further examination of this organization reveals that it is funded by and deeply connected to the U.S. government, neo-conservatives, and powerful monied interests, all of whom have been working overtime since the 2016 election to silence dissent to American forever-wars and corporate-led oligarchy.

    Beware Newsguard!!

    “to silence online dissent”

    “outlets that seek to expose wrongdoing”

    “news rating agency”

    “it will soon become almost impossible to avoid this”

    “dedicated to restoring trust and accountability”

    “to fight false news”

    “diligently working to make the adoption of its app involuntary”

    “The first state to install Newsguard on all of its public library computers across its 51 branches was the state of Hawaii”
