New round of attacks to take attention away from real issues. 1. They blur the difference between censorship and disinformation. #Disinfo insidiously manipulates. 2. #FactsMatter An investment is not a company's valuation! Learn more before exposing your ignorance!
Censorship is a government's control to silence information it doesn't want in the public sphere. While it's been used liberally, in the constitution, only government has this power. And control like this is old world, because in age of social media, they flood with lies.
Disinformation is insidious mind control: no transparency, no accountability. Governments flood the public sphere with lies, making it impossible to distinguish fact from fiction. This was 1st series in 2016:…

RSF Secretary-General @cdeloire is intervening from the plenary floor at #DefendMediaFreedom in London. Opens by noting the World #PressFreedom Map is getting darker every year, with only 9 percent of the world population now living in countries with a good press freedom climate.
.@cdeloire points to visible and invisible prisons for journalists. Counter-models are emerging that work against #pressfreedom. We are at a tipping point, and business as usual is not working. Business as usual will kill democracy. #DefendMediaFreedom
.@cdeloire calls for action in cases that haven’t been mentioned: @raif_badawi in #SaudiArabia. Cumhuriyet journalists in #Turkey. #DaphneCaruanaGalizia in #Malta. And Julian #Assange, whose case has worrying implications for protection of journalistic sources #DefendMediaFreedom

Globalist John Major who pushed the disastrous Maastricht Treaty expanding EU Dictatorship, & UK's membership of the ERM, is up to his neck in corruption with the Carlyle Group linked to the Bush Family, Bin Ladens & Saudis…
Globalist John Major was reponsible for the disastrous decision to join the ERM which cost the UK billions when we crashed out of it in September 1992 and made George Soros a fortune.

John Major hasn't got a Foreign Policy or economic decision right in his entire life.
Globalist War Criminal John Major was in cahoots with Bill Clinton to arm radical extremist Wahhabi Jihadis to break up Yuogoslavia in the 1990's and allow free rein to ethnic Albanian drugs, people and human organ traffickers in the Balkans.

I’m at the joint UK-Canada govt conference on media freedom. That’s an Orwellian contradiction in terms. Bonus: the whole thing is funded by a leftist billionaire media tycoon named Pierre Omidyar, through his lobby group Luminate. See all our vids at
This is a two-day conference. Tomorrow, the British journalist Tommy Robinson will be sent back to prison for reporting outside a rape gang trial This conference isn't for media freedom. It's instead of media freedom. It's like a free speech museum. It's just for show.
The conference itself is in a massive, Stalinist-style industrial facility in east London called Printworks. Huge police presence. Huge government slogans on the wall. It's exactly what you'd think a government conference on freedom would look like.
