With the new war cry of “fake news” many organizations, including social media giants and tech companies, are wielding the weapon of fact checkers and reviewers in order to bring down the press standing in opposition to their left-leaning biases. New organizations are emerging from the woodworks, with millions of dollars in backing, in order to combat conservative media.
But, as Juvenal’s famous line goes, “Who watches the watchmen?” Some fact checkers are able to mine some data from a report or governmental agency and that’s a pretty straightforward task, which they generally get correct. But, now many are turning from fact checkers into opinion checkers and are using their power to not only shut down funding for those on the right side of the aisle but to also silence their voice on multiple platforms.
We are here to uphold the freedom of the press. To allow them to have a voice and to fight back against the all-out attack from the left and their “fact checkers”.
