In 1971 President Nixon declared the "War On Drugs" and then in 2001, President George W Bush declared the "War On Terror". Their latest invention is the "War On Truth", declared by Obama, the elite and the main stream media. A pretty strong and dangerous alliance.
In the year of 2016 the "War On Truth" has been declared, under the slogan "Fake News". A war that coincidentally came after a global wave of attention towards the western elites hang for pedophilia, the Brexit and the US Election.
The established main stream media, that is loosing its stance as internet takes newspaper readers and TV watchers away from them, and a growing and not so controlled or corrupt alternative media is gaining foothold and nearly wiping out the more than 100 years old control mechanism of the masses.
So both the establishment elite, be it political or financial elite is being threatened by the alternative media and so is the main stream media.
So they join hands and declares "War on Fake News" and all participants are fighting for their right to exist.
Meanwhile, in United States of America. On December 24, 2016, President Obama signed the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act into law, and well hidden within that is the The Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act. As if indefinite detention was not bad enough, the NDAA now as from December 2016, also includes the very first sign of what George Orwell described as "Ministry of Truth".
What this does is in general to provide the authority to shut down media according to the needs and wants of the establishment, under the pretext of of the nation being under threat, a situation they can by ease make up themselves.
