NBC, Google, Foreign Fascists Target Conservative Media


Well isn’t this typical of exactly the problem.  NBC News’ Adele-Momoko Fraser, a London based “journalist” with the NBC News Verification Unit, happily wrote this story that was posted on the NBC website.  The headline:

Google bans website ZeroHedge from its ad platform over comments on protest articles

The “journalist” reported her story this way:

“Google has banned ZeroHedge, a far-right website that often traffics in conspiracy theories, from its advertising platform over policy violations found in the comments section of stories about recent Black Lives Matter protests.

Google also issued a warning on Tuesday to The Federalist over comments on articles related to recent protests.

A Google spokesperson said in an email on Monday that it demonetized the websites after determining they violated its policies on content related to race.

“We have strict publisher policies that govern the content ads can run on and explicitly prohibit derogatory content that promotes hatred, intolerance, violence or discrimination based on race from monetizing,” the spokesperson wrote. “When a page or site violates our policies, we take action. In this case, we’ve removed both sites’ ability to monetize with Google.”

After the publication of this story, Google backtracked Tuesday, clarifying that The Federalist had been warned about policy violations but still had time to address them. It now has three days to remove the violations before a ban goes into effect.

On Wednesday morning, Google said The Federalist had removed the comments that violated its policies and that it would take no further action.

Google notified ZeroHedge of the policy violations last week and “banned the website from its ad platform.”

Further down in her story, Fraser reports this:

“Google’s ban comes after the company was notified of research from the Center for Countering Digital Hate, a British nonprofit that combats online hate and misinformation. They found that 10 U.S-based websites have published what they say are racist articles about the protests, and projected that the websites would make millions of dollars through Google Ads.”

So, inquiring reader, you might ask: What is “the Center for Countering Digital Hate,” that is headed by one Imran Ahmed?  Because NBC certainly wasn’t going to tell you.

Here’s the answer as diligently reported by the real journalists at The Daily Caller:

“The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), founded in 2019 by Labour party organizers, put out a call for donations Tuesday after NBC News reported that Google was poised to ban The Federalist and Zero Hedge, a libertarian-leaning website, from making money off of Google Ads.”

Full stop.

Behold, recall the uproar over foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election? Well, apparently standards have changed. Now foreign interference in the 2020 presidential election, this time by a far-left British group, is perfectly ok with NBC and others – make that even necessary.

And note well the role of supposed “journalist” Adele-Momoko Fraser. When Google moved on the two American conservative sites, Fraser tweeted this:

Catch that word? That would be a thanks for “collaboration.” And “@SFFAKENews” is identified as “CCDH’s affiliate.” The Daily Caller also says that “Stop Funding Fake News, claimed on Wednesday that it had pressured Ford, the automaker, to consider dropping ads on Breitbart News, another conservative website that the British non-profit has accused of publishing racist material.”

And then there’s this: “CCDH and Stop Funding Fake News have also set their sights on conservative outlets like American Greatness, WND, and the American Thinker.”

Let’s cut to the chase. What CCDH and Stop Funding Fake News are really about is straight out fascism. Over here is this description of Italy’s fascist leader Mussolini and his view of the press, bold print for emphasis supplied:

“Journalists were, like all other professions, encouraged to see their occupation as one of many forms of service to the nation, to participate actively in the education and inculcation of the Italian people. Recall that Mussolini saw himself as a revolutionary and his government as a living embodiment of transformative new ideas. The transmittal of these ideas and relatedly the cultivation of a soldierly esprit de corps was, to Mussolini’s mind, a primary responsibility of the Italian press. No such idea of adversarial journalism, of subjecting the actions of state to investigation and scrutiny, was to infect the minds of the nation’s newspaper writers and editors. Rather Mussolini contended that “Fascism requires militant journalism,” the country’s newspapers presenting themselves “as a solid bloc,” committed to “the Cause” and obscuring or outrightly burying any fact or story antithetical to it.”

Sound familiar? What the CCDH and Stop Funding Fake News are really about is straight-up fascism: using Google and pressuring advertisers to eliminate the “idea of adversarial journalism, of subjecting the actions of state to investigation and scrutiny” because it might “infect the minds of the nation’s newspaper writers and editors.” And they are being helped by – NBC.

There are three serious problems here.

1. Foreign interference in the 2020 US presidential election by the CCDH.

2. The collaboration between NBC, Google and foreign actors to shut down the free press rights of The Federalist and Zero Hedge.

3. The stated intention of the CCDH, as reported, to shut down other American conservative media outlets, silencing Americans who may or do disagree with the propaganda of leftist media outlets in the United States.

All of which is to say? It is – and I say it reluctantly – time to get Congress involved, ASAP.

No less than the Constitution and its guaranteed rights of a free press and free speech are at stake.
