Of course no thinking person trusts mainstream media these days. But can you trust alternative media?
As it becomes more popular, alternative media is being polluted by attention seeing opportunists, as well as more sophisticated disinformation campaigns, often run to distract, confuse, and divide people who should be standing together.
Well, the state apparently now has legal authority to run their own fake alternative media sites, allowing them not only to spread their disinformation, but also to harass those actually publishing truth.
The FBI have been granted permission to impersonate journalists and set-up fake alternative news websites when conducting an investigation.
The new rules will grant the agency permission to entrap independent journalists and whistleblowers before they go public with information that could be deemed ‘subversive’.
