Harvard’s Fake Guide to Fake News Sites—the Ivy League shows its underhanded class biases

 I    s this what parents pay $63,000 annually for tuition, room, board and fees – so their children can be ill-served and ill-taught? Following the 2014 Obama administration Kiev coup, replacing democracy with fascist dictatorship, Harvard expressed concern about nonexistent “Russian aggression.” Some faculty members called for US military intervention. 


 Not a word about US-supported putschists seizing power. Nothing about the most brazen European coup since Mussolini’s 1922 march on Rome.  No explanation about a scheme orchestrated in Washington. Silence about a major crisis in Europe’s heartland still ongoing. Trump inherited Obama’s mess, so far not indicating clearly where he stands on Ukraine.

.
Harvard is at it again. Its University Library published a fake guide to “fake news, misinformation, and propaganda.”
.

It recommends using FactCheck.org, Politifact, Snopes.com, Washington Post Fact Checker, and other self-styled fact-checkers, biased against truth-telling on all major issues, acting as censors, trashing reliable alternative sources of news, information and analysis.


Editor’s Note: August Harvard University lists The Greanville Post as “a conspiracy site” although there is not a thing on this site that is more conspiratorial than reporting the crimes of the empire, crimes in plain sight for those who can still see, and which the prostituted mainstream media refuses to touch, or indicating our doubts about the doings of the Deep State, 9/11, and other major assaults on democracy in recent years—a belief shared by millions of intelligent people around the globe. Consistent with its class position and shared criminality, Harvard chooses to remain blind to the obvious sordid deeds committed by or with the full consent of the global ruling establishment, of which the US is the main engine, and Harvard itself a deeply embedded and revered member. In many cases, what these new Torquemadas wish to paint as “conspiracy” is plain old class analysis, painfully accurate in most cases, and the most feared tool by capitalists in the arsenal of revolutionary thought. Harvard knows this perfectly well.  Meanwhile, for all its pretentious aristocratic huffing and puffing Harvard is showing the world it’s not really a class act, not a class act by a long shot. —PG 

It endorses sanitized content acceptable to America’s deep state, abandoning support for speech, media and academic freedoms. It recommended “tips for analyzing news sources.” Ignore them. Common sense is the best guide, along with distrusting and avoiding media scoundrels. They’re paid to lie, deceive and feature fake news – what powerful interests want people to know, what’s most important suppressed.
 .
Harvard published a list of hundreds of sites it calls “bias(ed),” “conspira(torial),” “unreliable,” “fake,” and otherwise mislabeled.
 .
Some I’m familiar with are reliable sources, (polar opposite media scoundrels paid to lie), including:
21st Century Wire
