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