well recently we found a right winger fabricated the cnn response to his son so he could claim media bias about the shooting. Should that right winger be jailed for this action?




Anyway here is Fox news being held to account for their lying to help republicans win political offices and no one was fired at Fox for lying. Remeber Fox was raping people who dared work for them since its inception and it was know by the owner when he had to pay out huge fines that were never disclosed. That owned did this for several people. Again you can rape your female employees and not be fired. That is the standard at Fox.

Now we have them making up lies to help republicans win. Shouldn't dems get equal times to rebuttal their lies ie fake news.

Is Donald trumps fake picture using was it time magazine or whoever be allowed to claim he was man of the year and defame the value of another companies brand when he sues to protect his brand. Should he-be allowed in court with such unclean hands? again was that fake news his fake representation of his picture framed and multiple properties.

I say it is more likely he ran into either russian or RNC criminal attacks on the voting system to be mugged so misteriously.

Alex Jones Hit With Another Defamation Lawsuit, And It Could Go To A Jury

Quote:
ex Jones may soon learn that ruining the lives of innocent people comes with serious consequences.

On Monday, attorneys for Marcel Fontaine ― a 24-year-old Boston man whom Jones’ website, Infowars, incorrectly identified as the Parkland, Florida, school shooter in a Feb. 14 article ― filed a defamation lawsuit against Jones and his publication.

What’s more: Fontaine plans to take his case against Jones’ conspiracy-laden site to a jury instead of settling the matter behind closed doors, Fontaine’s lawyer Mark Bankston, of the law firm Farrar & Ball, told HuffPost.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Travis County, Texas, names Jones, Infowars, Free Speech Systems and author Kit Daniels as defendants in the case.

Daniels’ Infowars article featured a photo of Fontaine and incorrectly identified him as the gunman who killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

“Another alleged photo of the suspect shows communist garb,” read part of the article, later removed from the website, that showed a photo of Fontaine wearing a popular shirt from 2005 depicting communist leaders partying.

The story’s headline, featured on Infowars’ front page, changed numerous times, at one point reading, “Reported Florida Shooter Dressed as Communist, Supported ISIS,” according to the lawsuit, which Bankston provided to HuffPost.

Families of Sandy Hook victims, FBI agent file defamation lawsuit against right-wing radio host Alex Jones


Quote:
Six families of victims killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting, as well as an FBI agent who responded to the scene, filed a defamation lawsuit today against radio personality Alex Jones, who has repeatedly called the shooting fake.

The lawsuit accuses Jones, a staunch gun rights advocate who operates Infowars, a website that routinely propagates conspiracies, of “a years-long campaign of abusive and outrageous false statements.”

Twenty children and six educators died in the Dec. 14, 2012, shooting at the Newtown, Connecticut, school..

Facebook says the doctored Nancy Pelosi video used to question her mental state and viewed millions of times will stay up

An altered video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made the rounds on social media this week, which critics used to attack her mental state.
Experts told The Washington Post that the video appears to be slowed to about 75% of its original speed and altered for pitch, giving the impression that Pelosi's words are unnaturally slow or slurred.
Versions of the altered video still appear on Facebook and Twitter, but YouTube said it removed the video from its platform for violating policies.
Facebook FB has decided to keep an altered video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi , D-Calif., on its site that makes her speech appear slow and slurred. Commenters, including President Donald Trump 's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani , have used the video to call into question Pelosi's competence and mental state.

HuffPost Mary Papenfuss,HuffPost•May 25, 2019
Quote:

The Facebook account of an artist who turns MAGA hats into hate symbols has been disabled for violating Facebook’s “community guidelines.”

In her “MAGA Hat Collection” Maryland-based artist Kate Kretz refashions the red “Make America Great Again” hats promoted by President Donald Trump and worn by his supporters. She has turned them into a swastika armband and a KKK hood ( entitled “Hate Hood”) as a comment on politics and hate.

Fake Facebook accounts: a never-ending battle against bots

Quote:

Bogus Brexit murder plot and other lies planted online by Russian accounts: study
Reuters By Jack Stubbs,Reuters•June 22, 20191,548 Comments
By Jack Stubbs

Quote:
LONDON (Reuters) - In August 2018, Spanish authorities uncovered a plot by anti-Brexit campaigners to assassinate leading Brexiteer and now favorite to be Britain's next prime minister, Boris Johnson. Or did they?

That story and others like it were created by a network of social media accounts operating from Russia which have attempted to seed false narratives across 30 different online platforms, a study by the Atlantic Council's Digital Forensic Research Lab has found.

The effort employed scores of accounts posting in at least six languages on platforms including Facebook and Twitter, as well as multiple other blogging sites and forums.

The aim was to "divide, discredit, and distract" Western countries by planting false information about topics ranging from alleged British meddling in the 2018 U.S. midterm elections to Irish paramilitary involvement in the poisoning of a former Russian spy in England last year.

The network was traced by following connections to a group of 16 accounts suspended in May by Facebook, which said they were "part of a small network emanating from Russia."

Western officials have warned that countries such as Russia, as well as domestic political groups, are increasingly spreading false or misleading information online in order to disrupt politics and public opinion.

Moscow has repeatedly denied the allegations, most recently after the European Union said it had evidence of "sustained disinformation activity by Russian sources aiming to suppress turnout and influence voter preferences" in May's European Parliament elections.

The Kremlin did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

Ben Nimmo, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council's DFR Lab, said the accounts failed to attract a large following - likely due to efforts not to get caught - but the operation is notable for its audacity and sophistication.

"This operation was trying to provoke divisions between Western countries," he said. "It faked everything, from the documents it based its stories on, up to the accounts that boosted them."

Nathaniel Gleicher, head of cybersecurity policy at Facebook, told Reuters the accounts and pages removed by Facebook in May had been a small part of "a broader operation that was primarily active on other internet platforms."

"We know that these threats are not limited to a specific type of technology or service. The better we can be at working together, the better we'll do by our community," he said.

A Twitter spokesman said the company welcomed the findings and had a team "dedicated to identifying and investigating suspected platform manipulation on Twitter, including potential state-backed activity."



'FAKE, FAKE'

The alleged plot to kill Boris Johnson began on August 8 last year when a fake account on Facebook posted a letter purportedly sent by Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell to a fellow lawmaker.

The letter, written in informal Spanish and with Borrell's own name spelled wrong, says the minister has been informed of a "possible attack on Boris Johnson by radical Brexit opponents who want to stop him being nominated prime minister" and would alert British authorities.

Asked about the authenticity of the letter, a spokesman for Borrell said the document was "FAKE, FAKE." Boris Johnson, who is expected to be confirmed as British prime minister next month, did not respond to requests for comment.

DFR Lab said the operation's focus on narratives supporting the Kremlin and linguistic errors typical of native Russian-speakers supported Facebook's assessment that the accounts were operated from Russia.

"The scale of the operation, its tradecraft, and its obsession with secrecy, indicate that it was run by a persistent, sophisticated, and well-resourced organization, possibly an intelligence agency," DFR Lab said in its report.

Other narratives pushed by the network included a screenshot of a tweet allegedly posted and then deleted by former British Defence Minister Gavin Williamson.

Pictures of the tweet included in blog posts online show Williamson saying people connected to the Real Irish Republican Army had supplied "a component of the nerve agent" used to poison a former Russian military intelligence officer in the English city of Salisbury last year.

There is no record of the tweet being sent from Williamson's account. A spokeswoman for Williamson did not respond to requests for comment.
