The "Fact" Checkers Are Busy "Fact" Checking Jokes About Biden

Weird. Steven Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, and all the rest of the Unfunny Clowns tell 50 unfunny "jokes" with false premises -- which are "factually untrue," in fact-checking terms -- per day, and these are cited all day long by the media and promoted by Twitter and FaceBook.

With no "fact" checks.

But the minute a conservative tells a joke, the totally neutral-and-not-politically-biased "fact" checkers swarm the joke to let everyone know it's "false," which is the justification then for suppressing the post and limiting its reach.

There's a specific toggle in "the algorithm" that stops "misinformation" from being shared, so if you just call all conservative jokes "misinformation," you stop people from sharing conservative jokes.

So this funny meme instantly earns a "MANIPULATED VIDEO" misinformation warning from Twitter's "fact" checkers:

From SarahD of Twitchy:

Do you see that little "Manipulated media" warning tacked onto that tweet? Well, Twitter put it there because, as it turns out, there wasn't actually ice cream truck music playing at the scene! But don't just take Twitter's word for it; take Reuters', who put their Top. Men. on fact-checking duty.


That's not the only conservative joke the Real Journalists are "fact" checking in order to strangle.

On Friday I posted this funny, obviously-fake meme. Note that this is by "Tim" Nichols, not Tom Nichols, which I'd seen on Twitter.


This morning, Twitter had elevated -- pushed, editorially forced -- a "fact" check on this joke into everyone's feed. (But they're not publishers!)

Reuters' ace "journalists" were first out of the gate with a "fact"-check of this parody -- again, note that there are never fact-checks for claims made by leftwing outlets -- and their exclusive scoop was soon picked up by AP's stellar "journalists."



Both of these Crises -- the Ice Cream Joke Crisis, and the Tom Nichols Parody Crisis -- were such huge stories that the editorial team at Twitter, which, mind you, is not a publisher, made the "fact" checks for each of them the top trending story for the United States in rapid succession.



I repeat: the Propaganda Media's "fact" checker's false labeling of a story or a joke with a "misinformation" label is the justification for the social media monopolists they collude with to then push the SUPPRESS, LIMIT buttons in "the algorithm" they keep trying to pretend is some kind objective creation of artificial intelligence instead of what it is -- a code of censorship constantly updated, curated, altered, and modified by Purplehair Nosering Antifa Transexuals.

Conservatism, Inc. continues justifying this -- or, more often, just pretending it doesn't happen -- because the "understanding" they have with Monopoly Tech. iMonopoly Tech pays them money, both directly or through pass-through money-laundering groups like AEI, and also keeps them out of "the algorithm's" censorship protocols.

In return, Conservative, Inc. continues defending Monopoly Tech's every excess and attacks any conservative who suggests commonsense regulation and anti-trust action.

The Quislings of Conservative, Inc. have an "understanding" with Monopoly Tech whereby Monopoly Tech shall be allowed to continue censoring you so long as they do not censor National Review and the Bulwark and the rest of them.
