Quote# 125510

Following the 2014 Obama administration Kiev coup, replacing democracy with a “democratic dictatorship” integrated by two neo-nazi parties, Harvard expressed concern about alleged “Russian aggression.” Some faculty members called for US military intervention.

Not a word about US-supported putschists seizing power. Nothing about the most brazen European coup since Mussolini’s 1922 march on Rome.

No explanation about a scheme orchestrated in Washington. Silence about a major crisis in Europe’s heartland still ongoing. Trump inherited Obama’s mess, so far not indicating clearly where he stands on Ukraine.

Harvard is at it again. It’s University Library published a fake guide to “fake news, misinformation, and propaganda.”

It recommends using FactCheck.org, Politifact, Snopes.com, Washington Post Fact Checker, and other self-styled fact-checkers, biased against truth-telling on all major issues, acting as censors, trashing reliable alternative sources of news, information and analysis.

It endorses sanitized content acceptable to America’s deep state, abandoning support for speech, media and academic freedoms.

It recommended “tips for analyzing news sources.” Ignore them. Common sense is the best guide, along with distrusting and avoiding media scoundrels.

They’re paid to lie, deceive and feature fake news – what powerful interests want people to know, what’s most important suppressed.

Welcome to the filter bubble, where mutual distrust and disdain kills any possibility of fixing anything!

This is what happens when you swallow the Russian propaganda hook, line, and sinker.
PROTIP: Maybe RT is not the best source when it comes to reading about what's going on in Eastern Europe.

If you trash Snopes as being "biased against truth-telling," you're probably not much of one for telling the truth.

Seriously, Snopes deals with urban legends. If you want to believe that Pop Rocks & soda will make people explode, or that "IF YOU DON'T PASS THIS ON TO 15 PEOPLE THE GHOST OF A LITTLE GIRL WILL MURDER YOU TONIGHT," you're either delusional or extremely gullible.
