How my accidental lie ran round the world

hugo rifkind

Tweet a quip supposedly made by Donald Trump’s daughter and before you know it, you’re embroiled in a ‘fake news’ row


'They' (the journos) all seem to be at it and simply writing, nonchalantly, that it was done 'innocently' and was thereafter taken out of context, gaining a life of its own in the process. Smoke and mirrors by the sound of it.

Thread title would have been, "Fake News in the Fake News"

Very interesting to me to see which media comes out to decry and promises to rid the world of fake news.
Mark Zuckerburg & Facebook
CNN (see Iraq war 1, CNN Charles Jaco, green screen, satellite backfeed)

The fake news going after the fake news. That's precious right there. :lol:


Yeah I was wondering when somebody else would point this absurd story out. I found myself too annoyed to even go through the motions.

But I'm glad you did so. It really is the power infrastructure trying to define the terms and lay out the terrain so as to further muddy the waters for everyone else.

It's yet another layer of fakery we have to explain. And in a society where people have almost Zero attention span. . . well, that little Extra bit can end up amounting to a lot.

I can see people waving off information or insight into "fake news" with a quick "oh yeah I read all about how Facebook is going to crack down on all that stuff."

It's an effective (if unimaginative) trick to bolster a person's pre-existing and underlying belief/trust/faith in the "real news". So we have to adapt (in some ways), and be all the more careful not to adopt their use of language.

Rest assured their disinformation and propaganda campaigns will NOT let up. They simply can't afford to lose the (mind) control they've had over the vast majority for SO Many decades. Their ILLUSIONS are what keep them in power.

I agree that your post might have warranted a new topic. But this Is good for now in my opinion. If a new MO develops (and morphs) then I'm sure it will get addressed separately. :)


Or maybe "their power" is, in the altogether, ILLUSORY?

Speaking of the fake news going after the fake news, propornot.com takes the cake.

Russia is Manipulating US Public Opinion through Online Propaganda [ :o ]

Oh stop it you silly rabbits. Everyone knows Public Relations is just a euphemism for Propaganda. The fraudfather of fakery wrote the books on it!


PROPAGANDA - EDWARD L. BERNAYS (1928)

The extent to which propaganda shapes the progress
of affairs about us may surprise even well informed
persons. Nevertheless, it is only necessary
to look under the surface of the newspaper for a
hint as to propaganda's authority over public opinion.

The Engineering of Consent - EDWARD L. BERNAYS

Edward L. Bernays, New York City, in partnership with Doris E. Fleischman, is
counsel on public relations, a profession he was instrumental in founding. In that capacity
he has served governments, trade associations, and profit and nonprofit organizations.
He is author of Propaganda, Crystallizing Public Opinion, Speak Up for Democracy,
and Take Your Place at the Peace Table, and editor of Outline of Careers.

CNN apparently in a meltdown over people reporting it as a fake news site on Facebook. Just to remind folks, CNN has been in the fake news business since at least 1990.

Well, Sugarmountain decided (evidently) to pay a visit to Waco, TX to meet with various ministers. I can't tell exactly why he/it or they would be interested in each other.

Here is the WacoTrib.com article: http://www.wacotrib.com/opinion/columns ... mode=story .

Check out this image. It's interesting how each individual seems to be in his own separate world. But maybe that's just me.

I'll try to come back with more later.

Too bad they don't tell us about these things in advance. You know, so we can go meet the guy ourselves. <_<

Wow, it really does look like an unnaturally lit layered composite of different people unaware of the full situation around each individual character. Is there some reason they published this thing as blurry crap? Is it meant to be taken from an artificial video?

It would appear he has got some kind of growth on the side of his neck?

If this is meant to cause a "double take" it's not very effective — it's meant to depict a background face behind the him/it known as Zuckerberg.

Doesn't it seem weird that people in a court room would be photographed this way without censored faces? They even included someone else blatantly taking a picture as if to confirm "Yeah, this is normal. Look, it's just what people do in this case." There is something odd about the publicity around this event. It's almost as if we are all meant to be following the story drooling for a public hanging, when we know very well the same people that created and who lead the new media are probably small teams of military intelligence type personnel not officially publicly connected.

I agree. Looks extremely cut and paste. Beatles album cover.

Apparently Clues Forum readers are not the only ones who are skeptical as to the reality of Mr. Z:

http://www.businessinsider.com/people-t ... ody-2018-4

Zuck's been doing interviews and making changes at Facebook, as part of the PR push. But many of his answers have come across as stilted, rehearsed, and impersonal — a recurring theme for a man sometimes referred to as "Zuckerborg" by critics.

Simply put: Zuckerberg can come off as robotic when he's trying to portray himself as empathetic, and people notice. It's no wonder that Facebook is racing to coach Zuckerberg on how to be more charming ahead of his appearance on Capitol Hill this week.


These recently made it to the front page of Reddit, which I found amusing:

To me it looks like a dark haired person in the back is what creates that bulge. The back of his head and earlobe is behind Mr Zs neck when the photo is taken.

I would recommend every real human being in this world to test this in front of your bathroom mirror:

Do your ears rise by this much when you smile?

Not even the Breivik humanoid seems to be affected by this "eerie" phenomenon :

Good catch Simon. And, what about shifty eyes behind him. Now that is strange.

Wow I 100% agree. I watched that probably a dozen times and never noticed that. Now that I look more closely, the entire smile seems completely photo-manipulated, and given what we know, that is completely plausible if not downright likely. He is a Sim after all, n'est pas?

This is why I leave the forensic photo and video analysis to you guys. Seriously, it's a gift that Simon and many other members have in spades and I utterly lack. Your ability and willingness to apply that gift and spell it out to the rest of us is truly appreciated.

Yes. Bloody h. It actually looks like his ears elongates when he smiles!

But don't forget, they may very well be tripping us up on purpose with things like this. I suspect that scenario. They use their high tech to "absurdify" truth.

"Oh so you're saying Suckerberg is a completely computer animated person, and you can see that because his ears get longer when he smiles?" <Oh dear, this dude must be a Flat Earther, I've been warned about those...>
