Here’s why “fake news” sites are dangerous

Here’s why “fake news” sites are dangerous

by Jon Rappoport

November 27, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

Here is your daily mantra: “narrow the range of thought, narrow the range of thought.”

Exposing elites who run the world?

Exposing pedophile networks?

Documenting the lies and fabrications of major media?

Laying bare the manipulations of Globalists?

Revealing the crimes of both major political parties in America?

Uncovering the spread of pharmaceutical devastation?

Tracking the ruthless ops of major corporations?

Yes, many so-called “fake news” sites do all this and much more—but something else is also going on.

Many of these sites were launched and are spearheaded by ONE man or woman.

No person outside the mainstream is supposed to be so emboldened by his/her own point of view and passion.

“All points of view belong to a group.”

We’re not supposed to believe these “fake news” INDIVIDUALS created their news operations on their own. We’re not supposed to believe each individual had a vision of what the news is supposed to be and followed that vision forward with great energy.

An individual works for what he believes is true? He keeps his own counsel? He forges ahead, despite all opposition? He may even, when all is said and done, make a profit from his own labors? We’re supposed to oppose these “evils,” and by the grace of governments and their shadow operators, we will emerge from the darkness and find our salvation in a New Order of things.

***And never—if you happen to disagree with what some independent news site is saying—NEVER entertain the idea of starting YOUR OWN news operation and building it from the ground up to reflect YOUR OWN vision. NEVER. That is individual power, which is the horrible fate that would await you.


Avoid it like the plague.

Haven’t you studied your history? This country was originally built on chipping away at people’s individual creations and tearing them down. Right? How else could America have succeeded? It is only by taking away independence in all its forms that we could have arrived at the cusp of this grand triumph now: One Collectivist World.

If we give all our attention to the six corporations that own big media and deliver their news to us, we will arrive.

Hail, Caesar! Your followers salute you!

Let the bands play. March to the tune.

No individual ever built anything, no individual can build anything, no individual ever will build anything.

Search for the media-teat of the State.

Find it.

And drink from it.


How rejuvenating.

Exit From the Matrix

—In summary, independent news-site creators are fakes because they’re real. Outside the mainstream, on their own, they launched and expanded their operations. Being real outside the mainstream is fake, because the powers-that-be do not support that model. Are we clear? I hope so.

You can be fake within the approved model: that’s real. But if you’re real outside the approved model: that’s fake.

Got it?

“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?” —1984, George Orwell. Did Orwell even think to obtain permission from the New York Times before writing that statement?

    It’s so hard to believe anything you read or see on TV so many. Lies

  2. Dawn Vierra says:

    I tend to agree with this blog post of Jon’s. If we go ahead and label anything but MSM as false sources and say it enough times then people will believe like they always do. In actuality it’s the MSM that is false. This old trick of theirs is tiresome and boring. Let’s call out something and label it as that. Just like anyone who questioned going into Iraq after 9/11, calling them unpatriotic with the possibility you were also something even more terrifying Do your own homework. Don’t leave the responsibility of information that you are fed up to anyone else. Keep an open mind.

  3. Josh says:

    A classic post among many! Well said.

  4. John says:

    Never in the history of this country have I seen what one would consider an explosive news story never get covered or if it happens to get covered, it then almost seems to disappear instantaneously. It all boils down to coverage. The MSM gets its talking points from the NY Times and the rest of the “talking heads” all fall in line after that. You can switch channels but everybody is always basically covering the same thing. Important news cycles which happen to put a glaring spotlight on the corrupt system are treated like toxic fumes by the lame stream media.

    How else can tyranny and treason survive but by having a puppet statist media spoon feeding their version of “news” to a thumbed down population who can no longer think for themselves. Only in the twisted world of today could fake news be regarded as real and real news be regarded as fake. Obama and the globalists have managed to invert reality. People who question them, they try to marginalize and or call them names. However it is a game that is no longer working well for these psychopaths. There is hope out there and people in large numbers are waking up to there BS. Their game of throwing enough crap against a wall and hoping it will stick is being pressure washed clean by people who are now demanding truth and logic over BS! The rats are running scared in fear of the “exterminators” who are “spraying” them with truth, the so called “fake” news media.

    This is why mr trumps transition will be a dangerous one. These are people who will stop at nothing to achieve their global domination. I think it is akin to fascism

  6. 22sojourner says:

    There was a time in my life when I justified everything:

    Fresh out of the military, & damn lucky to find a good paying job working in a big factory where my very first job was dumping paint thinner, benzine, & other horrible chemicals in a swamp.

    When justified my behavior, even when I was angry & hurtful to others.

    When that same company sent me to school for training in the use of carcinogenic chemicals,
    with no means to dispose of them, except to dump them down the sink.

    When I knew about the polyvinyl chlorides that they pumped out at night, under the cover of darkness.

    When, my paycheck was the most important thing because of my materialism.

    When I talked about being a good person, it was where (in reality) I was in complete denial in lying to myself & all others.

    When I look at me … I sold out … just like the lying media, politicians, doctors, pharmaceutical employees, factory workers, GMO & dairy farmers … in an almost endless list of hypocrisy.

    Why, because of a paycheck & my greedy needy justifying my spending money?

    In turn, I drank the fluoridated water, ate the poisoned meat, & weed killer laced vegetables just like everybody else & without conscience.

    Shamefully, I contributed to my own down fall & that of mankind too.

    I’m sorry, I was no better than any POS politician, lying media, or the FDA, who … I would rebuke for being the very center of corruption.

    I can’t live like that any more, & for the last 19 years I changed my whole being into a truth of realistic sustainable development. And not that lying deceitful unsustainable development our POS world government is selling, but for love of mankind itself.

    I find myself looking for truth everyday, hoping for any ray of sunshine to champion, & that’s why I came here (No More Fake News) with heart in tow, I give my all to be who I should have been all along. In living my life in honor, in truth, living my precious everyday with love, kindness, & understanding towards all of mankind, the very best I can.

    I found out, if I want to make the world a better place, then I must start with me, it’s a do it yourself project, where I give my all to make the world a better place X’s one.

      The most important part of your story is that you did wake up and make the necessary decisions to turn it around. Now, having experienced what you did, you are an even more effective advocate for doing what is right, because you have done more than merely witness the dark side. Congratulations, and thank you!

    • Terri says:

      Thank you, 22 for your courage to step out of the mire and into the realization of who you really are. What you say is true. It is the only way to change the world and make it better. Welcome and blessings to you!
      Most of us were taught to be slaves to the system and have had to really work hard to de program and make our lives better.

  7. Sha'Tara says:

    Totally agree with this.

  8. Michael Burns says:

    Again you find yourself on the leading edge of what is ‘NEWS’ as compared to; actually that is wrong, there is no comparison to the trash, those rags, or pages of rags blowing up and down mainstreet of every city, town and village purporting to be the latest news…the likes of Wapo, NY Times and all the other trash mags spewing out fascism like widgets.

    It seems some mysterious group of self-appointed, WAPO financed, self proclaimed, enlightened individuals, have banded together…god bless their little bandito and patriotic hearts…

    …to define fake news for us all. Isn’t that wonderful. You see you can’t seem to be able to tell the difference. Plus who told ya’ll you could be journalists. This is a very important job, think of it like a doctor work, like a scientist work…it’s ah…brain surgery only with words.
    These slimy shadowy secretive and bellaclaved , and possibly Clintonisto types are out to the fakers. “Yeah, that’s the ticket, we ater the fakers.”

    “Ya big dummy, didn’t ya know, there’s fake news out there…that’s ok we at ‘Is It Propaganda Or Not’ aim to correct that…and we are here and we will help you help us sort out this mess. And guess what? The god dam commies are at it again…bastards…rust never sleeps… they ruin the election… and that Poutine fella, ya know the head of Soviet Union thingamagig, well they are at this propaganda stuff again. Give them a sickle and they’ll take a mile. And they are fake, fake fake fake Ruskies, and they are supporting fake news sites, and we are here to teach all you dummies how to spot the weenie. Yet might call it ah…’How To Spot Fake News For Dummies’…dummy.

    On that list is the usual suspects, that Alex Jones fella, and that commie faggot Ron Paul, oh and that sissy Paul Craig Roberts, of course that Tyler Burton jerk, and well check us out. We name the names. The more we look, the more we find. And we will give you the low down on all of it.

    Oh and BTW, just hit our little ***Donate button*** on the way out and drop in a couple bucks…it’s a tough job peephole, but somebody’s gotta do it.”

    • Joy says:

      This might be profoundly laughable if it weren’t so tragic to think of how many Americans besotted with MSM might give this even a passing consideration. What they are proving is that there is no limit to how twisted they can get in their dirty games!

      • Michael Burns says:


        I find that most times in this “it can get any worse than this” scenario/ time that we all live in….that laughter, poignant sarcasm, and my music and painting and a little bit of poetry. Enables me to soar above it all.

        Sometimes we completely miss the point, and the lesson is for us not them; and that lesson is

        “A sigh for those that love me, and a smile for those who hate.
        And, whatever sky’s above me, here’s a heart for ever fate.

        Though the ocean roar around me,
        Yet it still bear me on:
        Though a desert should surround me,
        It hath springs that may be won.

        Were’t the last drop in the well,
        As I gasp’d upon the brink,
        Ere my fainting spirit fell,
        ’tis to thee that I would drink.

    • Terri says:

      when i read about this, the site looked like it read “pro porn ot” and i could not figure out wth? perhaps a freudian slip of some kind??

  9. Terri says:

    Thanks Jon, the shame stream media is doubling down. They aren’t human anymore.
    After watching old Little house on the prairie episodes recently, I have realized with much dismay our pinnacle of our republic was during these times and as a society; honesty, integrity, hard work, gratitude, a can do attitude. We have fallen into weakness, dishonor, and all that is the antithesis of life since then.

    The path to collectivism has accelerated in the last one hundred or so years, generation after generation perpetuating victim hood and lies and the worship of a false evil god; the state.

    The price for approval and acceptance is your soul, but since most don’t believe in what they aren’t taught, they don’t think it matters. How wretched and pathetic this latest generation of whiners has become. They don’t even see it.

    Ayn Rand warned us years ago and has been ridiculed and mocked for her praise for the courageous innovative individualist.
    here is an antidote to newspeak that i hope will be helpful. Quotes from Ayn Rand A to Z

    • John says:

      Terri, I think you would enjoy the Howard Roark/Gary Cooper speech that was made in the movie, The Fountainhead. You can find it on youtube. It was probably the greatest speech ever given in a film.

      • Terri says:

        Thanks John, I watched the speech(powerful!) and will watch the whole thing later. Its amazing to me how the truth has been out there for everyone to see, such as in this movie the fountainhead. Yet, the masses refuse to see and continue to claim ignorance and victim hood. No one can truly claim ignorance, just apathy and weakness of character.

        I didnt discover Ayn Rand until I was older, I wish Atlas Shrugged had been required reading in school. At this point, if the curriculum is not changed to works such as this, our republic is lost. Children deserve the right to read these important ideas, for they wont get this kind of info in their own home; socialism has taken over so completely.

        To hear about someone speaking about the nobility of spirit is so inspiring to me. Truly food for the soul. I read the Sword of Truth books by Terry Goodkind almost 20 years ago, and now I realize they were all about the danger and evil of collectivism vs the power grace and beauty within the individual..

        • John says:

          Terri… try these books on the education system, you may find them enlightening.

          – The Deliberate Dumbing Down Of America by Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt, this book comes in abridged and full version, both versions are very long but well worth the time.

          -Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians Are using Government Schools to Destroy America’s Children by Samuel Blumenfeld and Alex Newman

    Who’s The Real Fake News?

  11. Aron says:

    “And never—if you happen to disagree with what some independent news site is saying—NEVER entertain the idea of starting YOUR OWN news operation…”

    I think this is so important. I get frustrated sometimes reading some of what I consider to be among the best “fake news sites” around because they aren’t necessarily reporting the entire truth of the matter based on my own research. And sometimes even more frustrating is reading the disinformation that can run rampant in the comment sections, for which debate tends to becomes an exhausting task.

    While I have been very frustrated at times by what others are putting out there in terms of news or information, I think Jon you have touched on something important here. I don’t know if I will ever go so far as starting my own news site or blog (not ruling it out), but at the very least I’ve come to realize I have no other choice but to take full responsibility to engage in my own independent research and not rely so much on what others are telling me. This may be obvious to most people here, but hey, we are all on our own journey in life :-). Writing down the results of this research can provide a great opportunity to enhance learning and comprehension, and from there, who knows what may transpire.

  12. Kevin Scott King says:

    The ‘News for Profit’ business has always been full of lies, because falsehood sells better than truth. Thomas Jefferson commiserated about this 200+ years ago;

    Please read the link, it is a short letter, and it’s eye opening.

    So what is different now?… well other than that the MSM media is controlled by a very small cabal. Few thoughts. One theory is that as the truth and the lie grow farther and farther apart (ie. the lie is so large, so bold, so… ridiculous) more and more people can ‘see’ or ‘sense’ the lie and thus reject it. They tried to shove Hillary down America’s throat… and failed. The Truth (that she is a pathological liar, psychopathic, and a career criminal) and the Lie (that she would be good for America) were too far apart.

    But… from what I have heard, the MSM was shocked that Trump won. This is very interesting. Was the MSM ‘told’ Hillary was to win? Or is this simply a case of the MSM believing it’s own bullshit? Have to remind myself that most newscasters are NOT in the know, and in fact are very thought controlled. They are just useful tools for the Oligarchs. I’m not sure yet. I suppose that propaganda has it’s limits, and/or one is not affected by propaganda if they are not exposed to it. We know the major news networks are losing viewers in droves. Is this simply the fact that the Internet and Social Media are now more important than broadcast news? And since, for the time being, the Internet still has independent voices, thus people can break out of the MSM matrix of BS? Hence, why all the censorship is occurring or being threatened. This is what I perceive is happening.

    Lastly and really the most important…Podesta and Pizzagate. This has blown the door, hell it’s blow the walls down, on just what kind of sick, depraved, criminals many within Washington DC are… and this illness applies equally to Democrats and Republicans. It appears this has really lit a fire under the MSM and the Criminal Class. It’s one thing to be caught in the midst of financial corruption.. it’s a whole other thing to get caught up in child pornography, child trafficking, child sexual abuse, child ritual abuse, and cannibalism. And as an aside, make no mistake, the NSA has been well aware of this, and for a long time.

    So the Truth via independent sources with the help of the Internet has defeated Hillary and exposed a very large and connected Pedophile ring. So the High level bureaucrats and their underlings are angry and now running scared. Thus the real fake news, MSM, is calling the potential real news, Alt Media (there’s plenty of BS in the Alt Media, choose wisely), fake.

    1984 indeed.

    • Sha'Tara says:

      Yeah, we’re way past 1984, chronologically and ideologically.

    • From Québec says:

      Retired Head of the FBI Tells All about Illuminati, Satanism, Pedophile Rings in the Government

    • Terri says:

      Kevin, yes the pizza gate is the most important story. These evil people have been doing these things for along long time and many have done their best to expose this, but have been laughed at or silenced and little to nothing has been done. Here is Cathy O’Brien’s experience.

      Alex Jones was in tears reporting about this, for he has the inside info about this and is one of those who has been trying to stop this for a long time.
      I think the masses are getting ready to handle some of these big truths, and this unspeakable evil must be stopped immediately. We must share this info with everyone and protect our precious children.
      I remember reading Michelle remembers when I was younger and knowing on a deep level that this was the truth but not being able to do anything about it.

      All the pop and rap stars are glamorizing satanism and i cant believe parents let their children anywhere near any of this filth. Parents have truly failed their children, and themselves.

      May the NYPD and others be protected in their investigations and be successful at nabbing every single one of these disgusting, vile creatures. They, like Trump need the support of the people behind them.

  13. Great article, Jon.

    Let’s put each point to the “truth test”

    Ok, point one

    Exposing elites who run the world?

    Yes, there are some that expose the figureheads, but to these actually “control the world”? I find no evidence of that. If anything the evidence points to a loop of subordinates that “proxy” order making all links “necessary, but expendable”. There is no doubt that double standards of justice/order exists. That is highlighted by “diplomatic immunity” or presidents that issue “pre-emptive pardons”.

    Moving on. Point two

    Exposing pedophile networks?

    By some miraculous feat, the mainstream and “alternatives” find absolute congruity of this “issue”. I have yet to find a SINGLE allegation (and judicial conviction) targeting noteworthy personages “with basis”. All have been “hard evidence” lacking” and reliant entirely on “hearsay” (admirably mocked by Michael Jackson). That makes me very worried on a number of fronts. Beyond the noxious determination as to what “categorises” “a child”, it seems to me that any slander (in the wrong hands) can be used for malicious purposes. Both Trump and Clinton have “allegations” hanging over their heads “resigned to the closet” unless……Oh boy 😉

    Ah, point three.

    Documenting the lies and fabrications of major media?

    The mainstream Medias regularly admit to their own duplicity, but it’s those devious little lies and fabrications that slip the net. That’s importance of Jon Rappoport and resources of that ilk (I would hope my own, humble “Ozzie Thinker” would qualify). Personally, I am less concerned about the dying dinosaurs and their pointless propaganda than “fringe sources”. That is where the danger lies. The peril is in the subtlety. You talk of “education” extricating logic. Disjointed minds can clutch straws for sanctity. When wild allegations are considered seriously they create their own contexts building self-supporting idols. People need to learn how to determine “evidence” from conjecture (ebullient fantasy).

    Point four.

    Laying bare the manipulations of Globalists?

    I am not sure enough has been done on this one. Even you, Jon, as plausible as your opinions are, have not gone anywhere near to puncturing the heart of this, for which I can think of no other expression other than, “conspiracy”. The consequence has forged a battle ground from wilful, disparate idealism with competing factions largely ignoring and/or steam-rolling the issues in wild, flailing attempts to serve their own distinct advantages.

    Point five

    Revealing the crimes of both major political parties in America?

    I think if Trump doesn’t implement radical change, the political system is redundant. Then the “people” will have too options a) put up and shut up (or whine) b) civil war.

    Point six

    Uncovering the spread of pharmaceutical devastation?

    Yes, but only in conjunction with the recognition of the FAILING of Pasteur’s “germ theory” and how our petro-chemical laced atmosphere causes most diseases and all cancers.

    Point seven

    Tracking the ruthless ops of major corporations?

    Unfortunately a lot of alternatives seem “tied” to corporations, so duplicity is bound to creep in everywhere. I think everyone must make it damn clear who their sponsors are and that way viewers can go to the “opposition” to get presumed more “honest”, forthright accounts.


  14. Travis says:

    Well, some of the best doctors and scientists were labeled “quacks” if they found a cure for cancer of heart disease.

    Likewise, some of the best reporters and authors get labeled “fake” or “conspiracy theorist” when they expose certain things.

    Just a cheap trick to discredit the truth…

    The mainstream of history is not always accurate and true; there are many lies of omission in the history books as well as blatant falsities.

    You can prove using known physical laws that JFK was shot from the front and that WTC 7 was a controlled demolition. These are the the easiest examples to prove mainstream history false since video records exist of these events.

    Another easy false paradigm to prove incorrect is the HIV/AIDS hypothesis.

    There is no justification for fluoridated water of mercurous vaccines. Once you can see the obvious bullshit, then everything else is a bit easier to unveil.

    I just read that Albert Einstein was a plagiarist. His seminal paper Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Körper had no citations. Hardly any of it was novel and had been worked out by Lorenz and Poincare. Olinto De Pretto published the formula E=mc² two years before Einstein’s paper.

    But no references to anyone. Nobel Prize winning physicist Max Born says this about Einstein’s paper:“”Another curious feature of the now famous paper, Einstein, 1905, is the absence of any reference to Poincaré or anyone else,” […] “It gives you the impression of quite a new venture. But that is, of course, as I have tried to explain, not true”.

    • Travis,

      I have the cure for cancer. It is simple. Remove all pollution from the breathed atmosphere and there will be no more cancers. Heart disease should be an easy one to work out. I think it is also linked to the atmosphere (or what’s breathed in) in some way. A very high % of smokers are afflicted, but (as with cancers) manifestation is a combination of a number of factors (diet notwithstanding)..

  15. Individuals are changing the world, as they always have. And change will take place proportional to how many people realize they are their own constellations of change. Thanks for this Jon. As someone who runs their website as an individual, this just drives me even more. The tidal wave is growing; its only a matter of time.

  16. Frank Fonda says:

    I began to rapidly lose my belief that MSM told the truth during the Vietnam war. ‘Bombing people back to the Stone Age’ was supposed to bring peace and democracy. Children being napalmed to death was candy coated by the Media when they omitted to report that theses actions were war crimes. Until US leadership answers for war crimes they will continue to commit them. Give the guilty 25 year terms and only then the future up and coming Sociopaths back down.

  17. Finally one of the fakers owns up…commie pinkos untruthers.

    Jon are you slackin man, painting instead fighting the good fight…lets pick up the pace dude, your not on the list….lol.

    Of course now that I think about it…you can’t call ‘NO MORE FAKE NEWS’, a fake news site. Unless it’s a fake; No More Fake News site.
    Oh oh, have I been on the fake site all along…Omg…a fake, fake news site.

    This is getting funnier every day!

  18. lophatt says:

    Very astute, and absolutely correct. All of this is “modeling”. It’s everywhere!. Only the compliant and submissive are rewarded. Nobody wants headstrong cattle. In the business of state-worship, there is no place for free thought or will. That is the business of “superiors”.

  19. Greg C. says:

    These people who respond to the subliminal dictum, “Narrow the Range of Thought” are to be pitied. Trying always to fit in, to pattern their lives according to some standard of normalcy, without really knowing why. Frightening to imagine someone not knowing why they think the way they do, why they make the choices they make. Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead is about as in-depth a study of this type of character as you will ever find. Trump reminds me of the hero of that book, Howard Roark. They both like to go to construction sites and make sure the work gets done right and on time. They both have enormous creative energy. But most importantly, they both don’t give a damn what anyone else thinks of them.
