Since the EU perpetrates so much fake news, what reason is there to trust you to censor ANYTHING?

Pam Barker | Director of TLB Europe Reloaded Project

The following is an e-mail sent by independent journalist and investigative historian Eric Zuesse to Nathalie VANDYSTADT, Johannes BAHRKE and Julia-Henriette BRAUER, the listed press contacts at the site europa.eu, whose names are attached to the European Commission’s recent press release titled ‘Next steps against fake news: Commission sets up High-Level Expert Group and launches public consultation’.

As of now, the EU Commission is setting up a so-called ‘expert’ group to formulate a strategy – to be revealed in the spring of next year – to tackle the dissemination of so-called ‘fake’ news. What is ‘true’ and what is ‘false’ just seem self-evident to these people, as does their apparently natural right to determine what the rest of us can know.  Let Zuesse point out the criminal absurdity of their position in the domain of western imperialism abroad.

Since the EU perpetrates so much fake news, what reason is there to trust you to censor ANYTHING?

ERIC ZUESSE

What about ‘Saddam’s WMD’ in 2002-3 where your ’news’ media justified America’s invading Iraq, which destroyed it?

What about the ‘justifications’ for invading Libya in 2011, which destroyed Libya?
.
These were your MAINSTREAM ‘NEWS’ MEDIA — the people who would be determining what constitutes ‘fake news’. Or, do you instead intend to be warning Europeans against the London Times, and against Spiegel, and against Le Monde, etc., as being U.S.-Empire fake-news media, as they were — and are, and will be?
.
Who the hell do you think you are? Dictators, perhaps? Or will you all instead quit in protest?
.
Will any of you?
.
Is the future that you at the EU are being paid to advance, something that you’d be proud to tell your grandchildren – “I helped to do that”? “I was a part of that”?
.
How disgusting does it need to be in order for you to quit in protest?
