Facebook is now smearing Breitbart News with biased Wikipedia pop-ups labeling their news “intentionally misleading”

It’s becoming clearer to me that the divide between the Marxist Left and liberty-and-freedom-minded Americans is becoming far too wide to breach and in fact may already be at the point of no return. I’ll explain.

When our founders adopted a provision of the First Amendment guaranteeing freedom of the press they did so, in part, with the intent that the American media would hold those in power to account.

That’s what the “indie” media (that’s us) does today — we seek to hold people in power to account, while simultaneously reporting accurately on all sides of the political spectrum.

That is a radical departure from what the Left-leaning Pravda media does.

The “establishment” media purposely skew their coverage so that it always casts a favorable, yet undeserved, light on Democrats and their liberal allies, no matter what they do.

Now, the Leftist Pravda media are going a step further: They are attempting to discredit the truth-tellers simply because we hold differing opinions about how the country ought to be run.

Take what Facebook is now doing to all content published by Breitbart News: The social media platform is labeling all the site’s stories “intentionally misleading” using a Wikipedia “About this article” pop-up.

That’s really rich because if you ask nearly anyone who’s been to college recently, they’ll tell you that their instructors forbid them to use Wikipedia as a source because — wait for it — it’s an unreliable source. I know; I recently completed a graduate degree and not a single one of my instructors would accept Wikipedia as a reference (and with good reason).

As Breitbart noted, the Wikipedia pop-up claims the site is “far-right” and published “falsehoods, conspiracy theories, and intentionally misleading stories.” While it’s true that Breitbart has a conservative viewpoint, that doesn’t make its content dishonest or untrue.

What’s more, the Washington Post, The New York Times, CNN, the broadcast networks, and the rest of the legacy media all have a “far-Left” perspective, but Facebook’s “About this article” button does not alert readers to their perspective.
