In a decision made without consulting first with users, Microsoft is teaming up with an online censor to filter out and “blacklist” conservative and independent media voices under the false guise of combating “fake news.”

As reported by Breitbart Tech, Microsoft has already installed a mainstream media (MSM) browser extension that rates the ‘accuracy’ of news sites as part of a default extension on its mobile versions of the Edge browser.

“In practice,” Breitbart reports, “it creates a news blacklist by warning users away from sites including Breitbart News, The Drudge Report, and the Daily Mail.”

The browser extension is called “NewsGuard” and it provides users with a red ‘warning’ label if they visit a website that the Left-wing speech Nazis at Microsoft have judged to be unreliable. A “green” rating is assigned to websites that NewsGuard developers have deemed trustworthy.

Several sites that are either supportive of President Donald Trump or at least cover him and his administration fairly have already been red-flagged, including Breitbart, the site noted.

In addition, the right-leaning U.K. website The Daily Mail, the third-largest paper in the country, was also red-flagged because, as NewsGuard claims, the site “fails to maintain basic standards of accuracy and accountability.”

It should be noted the Daily Mail has been responsible for several bombshell reports, none of which have been refuted and many of which exposed major scandals both in the United Kingdom and the United States.

There are additional examples proving that NewsGuard is really just another Big Tech censorship tool. (Related: Lawyer: Fake news media must retract false reporting on Covington Catholic School students or face a wave of lawsuits for slander and defamation.)

For example, WikiLeaks has been red-flagged even though the whistleblower website has never had to retract anything that it has published.

Establishment liberals and neocons developed this tool

Also, one of the websites with a green flag is none other than Buzzfeed, which recently published a “bombshell” story claiming that the president told his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about a Trump Tower project in Moscow. The reporters, Anthony Cormier and Jason Leopold, claimed to have cited two “federal law enforcement sources” who were familiar with special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings.
