This week's Global Research News Hour investigates some of the post 2016 mechanisms being implemented to restrict dissident news and analysis in the name of fighting fake news and 'foreign interference' in political affairs. Whitney Webb, author of a major expose on a neocon backed 'news rating agency' called Newsguard comes in to provide background on why independent media sites should be concerned about this organization.
Our next guest, Patrick Henningsen, geopolitical analyst and founder of 21st Century Wire, expands on this 'Fake News Patrol' Trojan Horse by discussing social media partnerships with less than wholesome entities like the Atlantic Council, introduces listeners to something called the Integrity Initiative headquartered in Great Britain which continues the mission of protecting democratic processes from Russian influence, and points to the hazards he sees in a Canadian government initiative proposing to protect elections from foreign (Russian) meddling.
