  1. For those seeking a new job, Duvidl also understands from Judith Bergman at The Gatestone Institute that Germany may start a new government bureau of propaganda. Any similarities to BBC output would, doubtless, be entirely coincidental. Applications, for beeboids fearing any staff cutbacks, might be made to German interior minister Thomas de Maiziere.

    Here is an extract:

    “Officials in Germany’s Interior Ministry are urging Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière to establish a “Defense Center against Disinformation” (Ab­wehr­zen­trum ge­gen Des­in­for­ma­ti­on) to combat what they call “political disinformation,” a euphemism for “fake news.”

    “The acceptance of a post-truth age would amount to political capitulation,” the officials told Maizière in a memo, which also disclosed that the bureaucrats at the Interior Ministry are eager to see “authentic political communication” remain “defining for the 21st century.”

    One wonders whether by “authentic political communication,” the officials of the Interior Ministry are referring to the way German authorities scrambled to cover up the mass sexual attacks on women on New Year’s Eve a year ago in Cologne?…

    …In Germany, it is criminal to bring attention to the problems that come with the government’s migration policies, or to criticize those policies, because this constitutes “hate speech.” Firebombing a synagogue, on the other hand, is simply an “act of protest.” Perhaps, once the “Defense Center against Disinformation” is set up, such “acts of protest” will be labeled, “Officially Approved Un-Fake Communication.”…”

      Isn’t that a gross distortion of the situation in Germany. The kind of gross distortion that makes Gatestone Institute output kind of …. extreme???

      I think that it is time that The west does take steps to shine the light on ‘fake news’. Whether the government bodies charged with exposing fake news will gain public trust is another matter. I don’t recommend blocking fake news though. Just exposing it as fake news.
