Soros-supported Poynter to filter ‘Fake News’ for Facebook?

Information surfaces that an online "journalism course" by the Poynter Institute—tied to leftist billionaire George Soros—falsely downplays the importance of Islamic jihad.

WASHINGTON, December 18 2016 —Secretive multi-billionaire George Soros is taking immediate steps to overwhelm and ultimately nullify U.S. President-elect Trump’s stated aim to undo Barack Obama’s widely-hated “fundamental transformation” of America, an ongoing effort that Soros has wholeheartedly supported.

This time, Soros and his wealthy confederates plan to use nonprofit and for-profit organizations he either controls or heavily influences—like the Poynter Institute—to censor the victorious Republicans along with the Libertarian right and effectively remove them from the online national conversation, much as was done with the so-called major media, beginning as long ago as the 1970s.

Soros’ goal: to advance worldwide Soros’ peculiar vision of a single, centrally headed world government based on a Marxist-inspired “globalism,” creating a New World Order in which enlightened mega-oligarchs, like himself, will rule. In this New World Order, petty concerns like religion, neighborhood, nationality and regional and national customs and traditions will be eliminated or destroyed to create a new, compliant working class that cannot think for itself and will do what it’s told.

All this information and more became available to the public during the 2016 electoral campaign when a significant tranche of emails—from within Soros-controlled fronts as well as the Hillary Clinton campaign—was released by Wikileaks. The pro-Clinton media failed almost entirely to report this shocking news.

A key element in this Soros-led scheme, likely inspired by the writings of Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci in the 1930s, has involved the leftist seizure and gradual control of all information sectors, government and private alike. The goal is to fundamentally transform these organizations into exclusive, anti-competitive propaganda mills peddling the Marxist-globalist information package 24/7, eventually forcing successive generations to passively accept and follow the new Party Line. In the 1930s, Stalin’s U.S. agents used similar tactics to infiltrate and take over certain American trade unions and government agencies under the dictator’s “Popular Front” program.

In his column below, Lifezette writer Jim Stinson details Soros’ recent machinations which have resulted in Facebook’s appointment of the hyperpartisan Poynter Institute and a team of well-known leftist “fact checkers” to serve “impartial” arbiters of what is “fake news” and what is not.
