2020 Election -- Like 2016 Election -- Serves to Show Social Control Media is Disinformation Machine, a Growing Threat to Democracies

RIP, truth

YouTube Accounts Livestream Fake Election Results to Thousands



So-called 'Faux' 'Noise' isn't that much better:

'Faux' 'Noise'

Summary: The events of last night and this morning are a timely reminder of the malicious nature of this social control networks phenomenon, which rewards people for misleading other people

THE corporate media is happy to amplify (or unwittingly act as loudspeakers for) election-related disinformation. Twitter panicked to the point of hiding "tweets" and this whole charade is a reminder of the toxicity of such platforms, where people spew and freely share falsehoods.



"Twitter panicked to the point of hiding "tweets" and this whole charade is a reminder of the toxicity of such platforms, where people spew and freely share falsehoods."We're not for banning Social Control Media, but people can generally avoid if not boycott it. If people value accuracy/information and not passage of falsehoods (in pursuit of provocation and ad-selling), they will go back to proper news site -- not the baron-owned ones -- and use RSS feeds to narrow things down to credible sources, not algorithmically-curated "timelines", optimised to increase "engagement" and sales.

Many flagsThe early outcome of the US election is much as we predicted -- Biden leading by a modest margins. The media, however, would have people believe something else. Social control media is literally stuffed with fake outcomes.
