NY Times exposed, Fake news blame of Russian posts for Trump win, Times “rectifies” data with fake statistics, Facebook general counsel Colin Stretch clarifies

“As soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any particular number of the Times had been assembled and collated, that number would be reprinted, the original copy destroyed, and the corrected copy placed on the files in it’s stead. This process of continuation alteration was applied not only to newspapers, but to books, periodicals, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, films, sound tracks, cartoons, photographs–to every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance. Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to be correct; nor was any item of news, or expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to be on record.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“the Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones.”…George Orwell, “1984”

From Consortium News November 2, 2018.

“Further research shows The New York Times was even further off the mark in blaming Russian social media for Trump’s win, as Gareth Porter reports.

Facebook Said 80,000 Russian Posts Were

Buried in 33 Trillion Facebook Offerings Over

Two-Year Period Further Undermining NYT’s Case

Even more damning evidence has come to light undermining The New York Times‘ assertion in September that Russia used social media to steal the 2016 election for Donald Trump.

The Times‘ claim last month that Russian Facebook posts reached nearly as many Americans as actually voted in the 2016 election exaggerated the significance of those numbers by a factor of hundreds of millions, as revealed by further evidence from Facebook’s own Congressional testimony.

Th further research into an earlier Consortium News article shows that a relatively paltry 80,000 posts from the private Russian company Internet Research Agency (IRA) were engulfed in literally trillions of posts on Facebook over a two-year period before and afterthe 2016 vote.

That was supposed to have thrown the election, according to the paper of record. In its 10,000-word article on Sept. 20, the Times reported that 126 million out of 137 million American voters were exposed to social media posts on Facebook from IRA that somehow had a hand in delivering Trump the presidency.

The newspaper said: “Even by the vertiginous standards of social media, the reach of their effort was impressive: 2,700 fake Facebook accounts, 80,000 posts, many of them elaborate images with catchy slogans, and an eventual audience of 126 million Americans on Facebook alone.” The paper argued that 126 million was “not far short of the 137 million people who would vote in the 2016 presidential election.”

But Consortium News, on Oct. 10, debunked that story, pointing out that reporters Scott Shane and Mark Mazzetti failed to report several significant caveats and disclaimers from Facebook officers themselves, whose statements make the Times’ claim that Russian election propaganda “reached” 126 million Americans an exercise in misinformation.

The newspaper failed to tell their readers that Facebook account holders in the United States had been “served” 33 trillion Facebook posts during that same period — 413 million times more than the 80,000 posts from the Russian company.

What Facebook general counsel Colin Stretch testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on October 31, 2017 is a far cry from what the Times claims.”

  1. “And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
    –if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
    history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
    Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
    controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

  2. CW………
    …………lies, and otherwise TWISTED stories are the foundation of all of the democratic liberal left’s rhetoric. Every story they claim is true can usually be traced back to a convergence with either excessive use of DOPE, a sick twisted imagination, or an outright blatant lie, compounded by extremely low IQ of the person from whom the story originated. The DEMOCRATS have nothing ORIGINAL to offer voters, and they continuously accuse everyone of the same filthy behavior that they themselves practice as standard behavior.

    The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming?
    The U.S. official in charge of protecting American elections from hacking says the Russians successfully penetrated the voter registration rolls of several U.S. states prior to the 2016 presidential election. Will this happen again with the 2018 mid-term election? Has security screening and precautions been set-up. No More Russian hacking Interference and we shouldn’t talk to any Russians before voting.

  4. hapnHal………..
    ………..yeah sure, and the Russians penetrated the brains of the voters ,hypnotized them, then commanded them to vote REPUBLICAN. Great sounding LOAD OF BULL$HIT. Sadly only low IQ nose picking, stinking, filthy mouth, mentally twisted liberal POS believe such crapola. It is people like this who dream up stuff like the Russian MIND CONTROL over America, and are stupid enough to think everybody will believe it. Only HALFWITS believe such a load of manure !!!!

  5. MSNBC/CNN have been dropping little ditties about Russian interference for weeks just to cover there asses if they get creamed, so predictable.

    I received this post comment today…….

    Three or four years ago, I got a letter from the federal Office of Personnel Management informing me that my personal information, including highly sensitive information I submitted when applying for a secret clearance, had all been lost to unknown parties as a result of a huge data breach.

    Other countries now have possession of the personnel records of pretty much every American who has a security clearance.

  6. hapnHal…
    ………..somehow I have a feeling that the personal information of people being under application for security clearance was NOT being held in a SECURE FILE. Had a secured file been used the likelihood of being accessed would have been diminished greatly. It would have required MULTIPLE identities, along with the standard identities of a secure file. Many secure accounts use a special sequence of special identities for access, and then must present a special identity known only to authorized personnel.

  7. hapnHal……..
    ………have you ever wondered just how many of our snotnoses know where the original cries “The ——- are coming, the ——- are coming …..1 if by land, and two if by sea” originated, and what famous person originally uttered them? Paul’s historic midnight ride. har har

  8. hapnHal………
    …….perhaps it is time for somebody to jump on a horse, gallop down the coast, and as they go yell “the Russians are coming, The Russians are coming. I would almost EXPECT a deranged liberal to do just that !!!

  9. hapnHal………..
    ………..here is a thought; why not use a computer system that only recognizes encrypted DNA codes of the people having security clearances to access their files which are also encrypted. Even the infamous Nazi ENIGMA would not be able to come up with the CONSTANTS necessary. When a hacker tries more than once he then is automatically electronically blocked at the server. My nephew was originally a computer programmer at SAC at Offutt AFB in the late 1950s into the 1960s. He is to this day under permanent agreement to never discuss anything related to his work during the years he was stationed there. They could still put him in prison if he divulged ANYTHING. He held TOP SECRET classification.

  10. AND TODAY………
    ………the LOST VILLAGE IDIOT FROM KENYA, is telling crowds of LOW IQ people what they should think, and why.The simple fact that they are there, listening to his BS tells the story on them.
    …….BUT we also have the POTUS out behind the IDIOT telling the people the truth……I wonder if THEY CAN HANDLE THE TRUTH !!!! Those with even a half a brain , and an IQ over 90 will probably GET TRUMP’S MESSAGE. ……whether they believe it or not is another question.

  11. AND TODAY……..
    …….ALL OF THE “JINGLE JAW” FEMALE TALKING HEADS ON TELEVISION ARE TOSSING AROUND SOME OF THE MOST IDIOTIC POLITICAL BULL$HIT I HAVE EVER HEARD. WHAT IF THIS…….. OR WHAT IF THAT…… HAPPENED……..WHO EVEN GIVES A DAMN?.THEY BRING STUFF INTO A CONVERSATION WHICH IS ABSURD, AND SOME OF IT EVEN GIVES ME CAUSE TO DOUBT THEIR MENTAL CONDITION. YET THEY BLAH, BLAH,BLAH. THEY ALL SOUND LIKE MZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. BEHAR, AND/OR ” WHUUPI”. KNOWING WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT IS ONE THING, BUT WHEN THEY INVOKE HALFWITTED NONSENSE I TURN TO ANOTHER CHANNEL,OR TURN OFF THE TV COMPLETELY. REALLY TWISTED BS.!!!

  12. AND……….
    ………….THE WORDS OF MZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. BARF RATTLES MY CHAIN BIG TIME. HER AND LIL JUAN ALWAYS CAUSES ME TO GO TO ANOTHER CHANNEL. I CAN’T STAND TO LISTEN EITHER OF THEM.!!!!!

  13. HERE IS A QUESTION ……
    ……….WHICH HAS YET TO BE ANSWERED; HAS ANYBODY EVER TAKEN A CLOSE LOOK AT LIL BARRY SOETORO, THEN TAKEN A CLOSE LOOK AT MALCOLM X. THERE IS AN EXTREMELY CLOSE FACIAL RESEMBLANCE. I HAVE WONDERED ABOUT THIS FOR A VERY LONG TIME. LIL BARRY’S MOTHER WAS KNOWN TO HAVE ATTENDED SOME OF THE MALCOLM X MEETINGS………..I CAN’T HELP WONDER IF MALCOLM WAS IN REALLY CLOSE PROXIMITY WITH HER. JUST A THOUGHT.

  14. AND RECENTLY……..
    ……..a snotnose little POS was doing some HUFFING of chemicals while driving in Wisconsin. He ran off the road and killed three little girl scouts who were doing community service along the road by picking up trash. This brought me close to tears. I pray that the SLIMY LITTLE POS GETS LIFE IN PRISON. REAL PIECE OF $HIT.He and his PI$$ complexioned friend thought they were really C-O-O-L as they weaved along in traffic…….finally losing control of his pickup truck, running off the road and striking the children. A fourth child is in critical condition.

  15. HEY GINGER……….
    ………..POTUS coming toward you.!!!!

  16. Just voted.

  17. The caravan of Central Americans marching towards the United States poses a serious public health threat and could bring dangerous diseases into the country, a prominent physician in a key border state warns.

    “It’s insane to bring in migrants from any country without proper health screening,” said Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. At her Tucson, Arizona practice, Dr. Orient, a graduate of the prestigious Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, specializes in internal medicine. In an interview with Judicial Watch she said that extremely drug resistant strands of tuberculosis are among the infectious diseases the Central American migrants are likely to bring in. Others include mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue and chikungunya that are widespread in the region.

    Just this week a mainstream newspaper reported on the health crisis created by the influx of Venezuelans fleeing to neighboring countries. The migrants are spreading malaria, yellow fever, diphtheria, dengue, tuberculosis and AIDS throughout South America. Many of the diseases had been considered eradicated in the neighboring Latin American countries, according to government officials cited in the article, which states that “contagion from Venezuela’s economic meltdown is starting to spread to neighboring countries—not financially, but literally, in the form of potentially deadly diseases carried among millions of refugees.”

  18. oldsailor86… I am so sad that I could not go to the rally! I am to weak and to sick. People started lining up ten hours before the doors were open even in the rain. There were shuttle buses transporting people. I hear that there was still around ten thousand out side!!
