I DO NOT Appreciate Youtube Linking To Encyclopedia Britannica's Page On 9/11

 

 

I found this article from July 9th 2018: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5935617/YouTube-aims-crack-fake-news-support-journalism.html?fbclid=IwAR3S...

 

"The company (Youtube) is also testing ways to counter conspiracy videos with generally trusted sources such as Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannica.

 

For common conspiracy subjects - what YouTube delicately calls 'well-established historical and scientific topics that have often been subject to misinformation,' such as the moon landing and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing - Google will add information from such third parties for users who search on these topics." - [dailymail.co.uk, 7/9/2018]

 

What is a "conspiracy video?" What are "conspiracy subjects?"

 

Monday Mouthpiece Peter Bergen goes to bat for establishment OBL death hoax.

 

In response to Seymor Hersh's criticism of the truth of the details of the alleged OBL death raid, Peter Bergen the mainstream media's OBL go-to, does his deer in head lights best to dismiss Hersh's claims.

A couple of weeks ago, Peter Bergen did an email Q & A as part of the promotion for CNN's "In the Footsteps of bin Laden."

I asked a couple prominent researchers on 9/11 and "Deep Politics" to submit their opinions about this particular exchange;

Q: If it’s true that bin Laden once worked for the CIA, what makes you so sure that he isn’t still?

BERGEN: This is one of those things where you cannot put it out of its misery.

The story about bin Laden and the CIA—that the CIA funded bin Laden or trained bin Laden—is simply a folk myth. There’s no evidence of this. In fact, there are very few things that bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and the U.S. government agree on. They all agree that they didn’t have a relationship in the 1980s. And they wouldn’t have needed to. Bin Laden had his own money, he was anti-American and he was operating secretly and independently.

The real story here is the CIA didn’t really have a clue about who this guy was until 1996 when they set up a unit to really start tracking him…
