In the last few weeks Facebook has become assiduous in removing “fake news’ newsposts from its servers. Telesurtv is one such example- now reinstated
One might be forgiven for thinking that Facebook serves interests other than truth and honesty in its promotion of the ‘fake news’ meme, when one looks at just one such media article listed on the Telesur website Telesur is one of the few English language media outlets in South America that promotes indigenous rights against the rapaciousness of corporate entities ( predominantly US-based).
The history of the U.S. ongoing intervention in South America to promote its own interests ( ie US corporate profits) has resulted in many many thousands if not millions of of deaths, the decades long support of South American tyrannical regimes , death squads, torture and the oppression of South America’s working classes, peasants and indigenous population- as well as the rape of its incredible environmental heritage for logging and meat production companies, and the facilitation of the drug trade .
The recent U.S. sanctions against Venezuela are just one more example of the techniques used by the United States to destabilize various Latin American governments that do not suit U.S. corporate interests.
How much longer does South America have to endure the tortures of this ignorant bully from the North I wonder? How much longer will supposedly ‘honest’ American media portray U.S. interventions as being upholding ‘freedom and democracy’?
Sadly this distortion and manipulation of ‘truth’ by powerful American companies for the benefit of corrupt U.S. businessmen has been an ongoing reality for the past century.
Craig Murray beautifully outlines the Facebook censorship issues from another perspective here, and the extraordinarily ignorant and inept role of the Atlantic Council.
