“Fact-checking” as an industry seems to have come out of nowhere, with these social media arbiters of truth being used to control narratives on whatever issue they so please, which is why it’s so incredibly concerning exactly WHO is funding them.
Of course, it’s none other than George Soros – the man responsible for pushing propaganda through any means possible – having spent billions in the past 20 years to influence politics across the globe.
Soros has helped to develop large organizations comprised of “fact-checkers” and so-called “misinformation” experts, for the left to use them in their war against dissenting opinions.
The New York Post broke down the trail of Soros money, and found that he is behind some of the most CORRUPT “fact-checkers” who go out of their way to discredit conservative voices.
The Post reports:
“Later in the year, heading into the midterms, in an open letter signed by 11 other leftist groups, the Soros-funded Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights called on Big Tech CEOs to take “immediate” action to spread so-called “voting disinformation” to “help prevent the undermining” of democracy. The signatories had received a combined $30.3 million from Soros in just a four-year period.
As the Hungarian publication Remix revealed, of the 11 Facebook-approved fact checking organizations for Central and Eastern Europe, eight were funded by Soros. As is the case for the US, these fact checking groups are largely critical of the political right.
One project of the Poynter Institute specifically, the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), was launched in 2015 with its initial funding coming from the National Endowment for Democracy (backed by the US State Department), the Omidyar Network, Google, Facebook, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.”
As the Post notes, Soros has his hands in with a disturbing mixture of people all determined to silence conservatives – INCLUDING THE US STATE DEPARTMENT!
Their funding sources mean these fact-check groups are clearly not so “unbiased” and “politically neutral” as they have claimed to be!
“Fact-checking” has enabled social media companies to take a hands off approach to censorship. They use these supposedly unbiased third-parties to label information as “misinformation” and then remove it based on the pre-determined labels by the Soros funded organizations.
Facebook has notoriously relied on fact-checkers to avoid taking any responsibility whatsoever for censorship, despite their well-known efforts to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story even BEFORE the fact-checkers placed any labels on it.
Soros has displayed a commitment to destroying America and its values – free-speech included – and the deployment of these fact-check armies could be another sinister strategy of his to do just that!
