MOA—Today anyone can create content and rent or buy virtual claqueurs in from of “likes” on Facebook or “followers” on Twitter to increase its distribution. An alternative is to create artificial social media personas who then promote one’s content. That is what the Internet Research Agency, the Russian “troll factory” from St. Petersburg, did. The fake personas it established on Facebook promoted IRA created clickbait content like puppy picture pages that was then marketed to sell advertisements. The profit orientated social media giants do not like such third party promotions. They prefer that people pay THEM to promote their content. Selling advertisements is Facebook’s business. Promotional accounts on its own platform are competition.

The decision by Facebook to delete left-leaning Latin American news network Telesur’s English language page with no explanation has only added to concerns over censorship and US government interference on the platform. Having been deleted on Facebook earlier this year, Telesur had been “even more careful” with its posts and broke “absolutely none” of Facebook’s terms, former director of Telesur, Pablo Vivanco, told RT. Vivanco believes there is no justification for the social media giant to have removed the page once again, stressing that on Telesur, there was “always a process to ensure accuracy and journalistic ethics.”

MARGARET KIMBERLEY—We are living in an era when every person on the planet is under surveillance, regardless of their ideology or political activity. The National Security Agency (NSA) has records of every email and every phone call made in the country. The Boston Globe recently revealed the existence of a program called Quiet Skies , which has the power to put any air traveler under direct, physical surveillance from federal air marshals. Behavior such as “Reversing or changing direction and/or stopping in transit in an airport, boarding last, or observing the boarding gate from afar,” can guarantee that a traveler will unknowingly be accompanied by an air marshal on their next flight.

STEPHEN LENDMAN—On August 9, Infowars said a deep state “electronic lynch mob (is) targeting software running” its website, accusing tech giants of being behind the “de-platforming” attack. Venezuela Analysis (VA), the leading English language source of news and information on the Bolivarian Republic, was targeted – its Facebook page suspended to suppress truth-telling, falsely labeling it propaganda.
