But all powerful or not, social media giants like Google, Facebook and Twitter--not even with all their significant might--could get Hillary Clinton elected as president, but instead blame Fake News on their abysmal failure

Smearing Conservative news sites as the chief purveyors of “Fake News” is a strictly feminist creation.

Calling out Conservative publications as Fake News took rise in the immediate aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s stunning, historic and impossible-to-accept loss to Donald Trump.

Left in exile by the outcome of Election 2016, the Democrats moved with lightning speed to drop the Fake News smear on the doorstep of Conservative news publications.

They desperately needed to hide the scope of the down and dirty tricks they put into play during a presidential election campaign best described as unprecedented.

They needed big distractions while waiting for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to come up with the evidence of a Russia/Trump collusion conspiracy that would impeach America’s unexpected 45th.

Nothing like the Marxist Fine Art of Projection to make the enemy look like the bad guy.

It was time to unleash fake professor, feminist, and activist Melissa “Mish” Zimdars of Merrimack College in Massachusetts on the ‘fake news is conservative’ conspiracy.

That way the progressive left could continue building the bombs but get narcissist Zimdars to throw them.

Bomb Number One was a fake list of fake news practitioners.

“Zimdars, a Donald Trump critic and Carly Rae Jepsen fan, is an assistant professor at Merrimack College in Massachusetts, whose research focus includes “social justice.”  (Free Beacon, March 13, 2017)

“She has organized liberal protest rallies against student debt and refers to conservatives as the “DARK SIDE.”

So powerful was the fake news list Zimdars created, “False, Misleading, Clickbait-y, and Satirical ‘News’ Sources,” shortly after Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the presidential election, it went viral.

The list, which Zimdars has already edited because news sites mistakenly appeared on it, features numerous conservative outlets. (Free Beacon)

“Zimdars runs the “” project, which continuously updates the database for online developers to “leverage in the fight against fake, false, conspiratorial, and misleading news.”

“Our database is maintained by professionals who have analyzed each source, looking for overall inaccuracy, extreme biases, lack of transparency, and other kinds of misinformation,” the website states.

“One article and video at a time, I’m gradually bringing my Dad and brother back from the propagandistic, conservative/Republican DARK SIDE,” Zimdars tweeted in 2015.

“Zimdars refers to Donald Trump as “Drumpf,” and said illegal immigrants “contribute more to this country” than Trump “ever has or ever will.”

The Zimdars list was, nonetheless soon picked up and circulated by the Harvard Library.

There are 1,001 names on the list, including Canada Free Press.

This week the Merrimack-Harvard fake news list is making a comeback, courtesy of social media giant Google.

Google’s troublesome new ‘Fact Check Display’ for conservative publications is the resurrection of the Merrimack-Harvard Library fake news list that began to circulate the Internet more than a year ago.

Look at the graphics below to see the striking similarities in style between the Google Fact Check Display and the Merrimack-Harvard Library Fake News list.

The massive Merrimack-Harvard database of “fake, false, or regularly misleading websites,” still in use to the present day, purportedly as a resource for university students to be able to identify “fake news”, is now getting a Google resurgence.

Why would Google, the most powerful search engine in the world, copy the style of the Merrimack-Harvard Library Fake News List?

Because it’s the intention of the progressive left via social media to prevent conservative publications from getting their message out over the Internet.

They’ve plunged the conservative voice into an inky darkness from which they believe there will be no return.

“A few conservative critics predicted early on that the recent obsession with fake news would lead eventually to right-of-center newsrooms being lumped with the bad actors.(Washington Examiner March 11, 2017)

“Google, the most powerful search engine in the world, is now displaying fact checks for conservative publications in its results.”

No prominent liberal site receives the same treatment.

“And not only is Google’s fact-checking highly partisan—perhaps reflecting the sentiments of its leaders—it is also blatantly wrong, asserting sites made “claims” they demonstrably never made. ( Daily Caller, Jan. 9, 2018)

“When searching for a media outlet that leans right, like The Daily Caller (TheDC), Google gives users details on the sidebar, including what topics the site typically writes about, as well as a sidebar titled “Reviewed Claims.”

Vox, and other left-wing outlets and blogs like Gizmodo, are not given the same fact-check treatment. When searching their names, a “Topics they write about” section appears, but there are no “Reviewed Claims.”

A gang-up of social media suppression of conservative publications seeks to turn the lights off on them, one by one.

While Google “fact checks” conservative news sites, Twitter direct messaging engineer Pranay Singh admitted to mass-banning accounts that express interest in God, guns, and America, during a recent Project Veritas investigation.

While making billions living in a capitalist marketplace society, Silicon Valley wants to transform it over to a socialist one.

The survival of democracies leans heavily on even playing fields.

Rather than turning off the lights, social media giants should allow readers of left leaning publications and readers of conservative leaning publications to read their online publications of choice.

Other than for politics there should be no need for suppression of any kind.

But all powerful or not, social media giants like Google, Facebook and Twitter—not even with all their significant might—could get Hillary Clinton elected as president, but instead blame Fake News on their abysmal failure.

It must be to their utter frustration knowing that there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel as long as readers continue to search online to find the publications of their choice.
