A new report finds that the crooked Dept. of Defense paid nearly $800,000 to the extreme partisan Internet censorship organization that calls itself Newsguard to target and eliminate the revenue stream and search engine visibility of conservative websites.
If you are unaware, as Breitbart News explains, this so-called “non-partisan” organization targets mostly just conservative sites and “rates” them for what they claim is truth and veracity. They then use these fake “ratings” to convince advertisers not to buy ads on the conservative sites. They also tell search engines such as Google, Bing and others that the conservative sites are terrorist cells that should be delisted from searches.
Since most of these advertisers are leftists and since Google and the rest are also leftists, they happily take the recommendation of Newsguard as the god’s honest truth. This organization has destroyed the income stream of dozens of sites — and several I have worked for went belly up because of it. So, their un-American activities have directly affected by livelihood.
They don’t really target left-wing sites, and they never, ever rate the lies coming from outlets such as the AP and CNN. But they have destroyed literally hundreds of conservative sites, defunding them and shutting them down.
And that is their purpose. To seek out and destroy conservative sites.
Now, according to a site that tracks government spending, we find out that our own government has been violating the U.S. Constitution and funding Newsguard to seek out and destroy the free political expression of conservatives.
According to Matt Taibbi: “Some NGOs, like the GEC-funded Global Disinformation Index or the DOD-funded Newsguard, not only seek content moderation but apply subjective ‘risk’ or ‘reliability’ scores to media outlets, which can result in reduction in revenue. Do we want government in this role?”
