The Left wants to control the flow of information on the internet.
Censorship is the tool they’re using to achieve this goal.
And the globalist Left has one dark plan to shut down this website.
The Washington Examiner published a bombshell report explaining how left-wing organizations around the world are creating front groups to pressure companies to block conservative media sites and choke off advertising revenue.
Companies want to avoid controversy at all costs and are now partnering with left-wing groups like the British-based Global Disinformation Index to create blacklists of conservative media sites.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Major ad companies are increasingly seeking guidance from purportedly “nonpartisan” groups claiming to be detecting and fighting online “disinformation.” These same “disinformation” monitors are compiling secret website blacklists and feeding them to ad companies, with the aim of defunding and shutting down disfavored speech, according to sources familiar with the situation, public memos, and emails obtained by the Washington Examiner.
Brands, which have been seeking to promote products online through multiple websites to expand their digital footprint, are turning to corporate digital ad companies keyed into global markets. In turn, some of these companies are contracting “disinformation” trackers to obtain private information about which websites they should purportedly “defund.”
The Global Disinformation Index purports to want to stop the spread of misinformation on the internet.
But what the Global Disinformation Index describes as “misinformation” is vague and amounts to anything that challenges Democrat Party talking points.
“Often these narratives are crafted using selected elements of fact. Whenever someone peddles an intentionally misleading narrative, often crafted using selected elements of fact, that is adversarial in nature against an at-risk individual, group, or institution and that creates a risk of harm, disinformation is being spread. Adversarial narratives undermine trust in our social, political, economic, and scientific institutions and sow or exacerbate division within our societies, often leading to real world harms, including violence, illness and death,” the Global Disinformation Index wrote.
The Global Disinformation Index also maintains the Dynamic Exclusion List that tells companies which websites to block ads from appearing on.
“The DEL contains the worst offending websites and apps across multiple countries and languages and is continually updated to capture new disinformation sources and narrative,” the Global Disinformation Index explains.
The goal of this campaign is to bankrupt conservative media outlets that can’t compete with the ad dollars legacy outlets like the New York Times generate.
“It’s devastating,” State Department’s ex-deputy assistant for internal communications and information policy Mike Benz explained in an interview with the Washington Examiner. “The implementation of ad revenue crushing sentinels like Newsguard, Global Disinformation Index, and the like has completely crippled the potential of alternative news sources to compete on an even economic playing field with approved media outlets like CNN and the New York Times.”
