Microsoft’s New Fact Checking Team Has a History of Journalistic Chicanery

Meet your new information overlords.

Published

on

With Microsoft gearing up to pre-install an Orwellian fact-checking “truth-meter” into every Internet Explorer build, now may be a good time to take a hard look at just who’s approving those facts.

The folks behind the veil here will, of course, be of the utmost importance to the direction of the organization.  They surely got involved in the fight against fake news because of their convictions, and that is often far too mighty a feeling to abandon immediately.

That’s why Newsguard, the fly-by-night fact checking organization’s advisory board is so troubling.

General Michael Hayden: Former Director of the CIA, Director of the NSA, and Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence, appointed by former President George W. Bush.

Don Baer:Burson-Marstellar CEO, Chairman of the Board of PBS, and former White House Communications Director, appointed by former President Bill Clinton.

John Battelle: Co-founder of Wired.

Jessica Lessin: Editor-in-chief of the Information, and former Wall Street Journalreporter.

Not only is this merely a gathering of well-entrenched, DC establishment figures, but they have all demonstrated their own unique brand of sinister over the course of their careers.

For starters, General Hayden is an avid conspiracy theorist:

General Michael Hayden is an avid promoter of the Russia collusion conspiracy theory, and has promoted the infamous Steele Dossier, which, among other things, claimed President Trump paid Russian prostitutes to urinate in front of him.

For Jessica Lessin, there are concerns about her previously fraudulent behavior:

Lessin, in 2016, faced heavy criticism for unethical journalism after she “defended Facebook” in an article “from calls that it should fact-check the news as a way of combating fake stories,” without disclosing her and her husband’s deep connections to the social network and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg — who reportedly even attended their wedding.

“What neither Lessin nor The Times’s opinion editors told readers is that Lessin and her husband, Sam, have close ties to Facebook and its founder, Mark Zuckerberg. Sam Lessin is a long-time friend of Zuckerberg since their days at Harvard,” reported New York TimesPublic Editor Liz Spayd. “When young Zuckerberg was shopping for money to start his business, Sam took him around to meet investors. When Sam had a business of his own, Zuckerberg bought it, and then Sam went to work at Facebook.”

And the list goes on…

As Winston Churchill once said,  “the truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is”.

Biden & Harris Refuse to Answer Questions From the Press — For Third Day In A Row (Video)

They must not have anything to say to the American people…

Donald Trump picked Mike Pence to be his vice presidential running mate in 2016 because the man was the chief executive of a state. Pence had gubernatorial experience, as well as a past in the lower chamber of Congress. Joe Biden, on the other hand, chose Kamala Harris to be his VP running mate because of the color of her skin. That’s literally the only reason. It was a purely political move, as the Biden camp knows they can call everyone racist if they say something negative about Harris – and the media will back them up. But Joe and Commiela had better be careful. If they continue to sidestep even liberal reporters, said liberal reporters are likely to become salty.

From Fox News: Joe Biden said in an interview Wednesday that some funding should “absolutely” be redirected from police, amid calls from some in his party to “defund the police” in the wake of the protests across the country. Biden’s campaign has said he does not support defunding the police. But in a Now This interview with activist Ady Barkan, the presumptive Democratic nominee said that police forces don’t need surplus military equipment, saying this is what leads them to “become the enemy” in a community.

Bill Barr: There Will Be ‘Significant Developments’ In Durham Probe Before November Election

It’s about time!

The Durham probe will leave yet another stain on Barack Obama’s record, showing how inept and corrupt the 44th president’s administration truly was. And it’s about time something got done. The left won’t pay much attention to this story, because they know they don’t want to know. You feel me? WATCH: https://twitter.com/M2Madness/status/1294086122558062592?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1294086122558062592%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fag-barr-says-there-will-be-significant-developments-in-durham-case-before-the-election%2F More from Fox News: Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith will plead guilty to making a false statement in the first criminal case arising from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the investigation into links between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign, two sources close to the matter tell Fox News. Clinesmith was referred for potential prosecution by the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, which conducted its own review of the Russia investigation. Specifically, the inspector general accused Clinesmith, though not by name, of altering an email about former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page to say that he was “not a source” for another government agency. Page has said he was a source for the CIA. The DOJ relied on that assertion as it submitted a third and final renewal application in 2017 to eavesdrop on Page under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Keep America Great!
