The U.S. Goes After The News
The U.S. State Department has been working with a British organization to defund and deplatform news sites that it does not like. They call this, you guessed it, a disinformation project. There’s that word again!
The State Department has spent over $300,000 to work with The Global Disinformation Index to put together a “dynamic exclusion list” that it sends to corporate entities and asks them not to buy ads on those sites. The news outlets include the New York Post, the Washington Examiner, the Daily Wire, Newsmax, Reason.com and more.
Meanwhile, the GDI ranked “low risk” news outlets including The Associated Press, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and other mainstream titles.
Should the State Department be working against a free press? Is this another example of the government picking winners and losers with your tax dollars?
