Google and Facebook will be working with the mainstream media to tell voters “what and who to trust”, including “memes, comment threads and news sites”, in the lead up to the French elections.

The two Tech giants, who have been accused of a “liberal bias”, will set up the “coalition news verification project” with 37 French and international media outlets including the BBC, AFP (Agence France-Presse), and BuzzFeed News.

On an official blog post, Google claimed “CrowdTangle” had been set up “with a goal of helping the French electorate make sense of what and who to trust in their social media feeds, web searches and general online news consumption in the coming months…”

The first round of the French presidential election is due to be held in April, and polls suggest right wing populist Marine Le Pen could come out on top.

  1. CFR is the flavour of the day

    • http://blogs.cfr.org/zenko/2017/03/02/the-not-so-peaceful-transition-of-power/

      • tha pantomime of “civil war” / pro-Trump vs. anti-Trump, whilst the agenda – of conquering the Middle East for the masters – goes still without any public questioning…the same as #pizzagate…protect the system in order to make it function according main objectives.

      • The first two comments to the CFR article are telling of the general direction the dialogue wants to go. If Obama-Clinton were in office there may have been more conflict with Russia, and the drone strikes would have continued undoubtedly. Another comment was how some people see Trump as a traitor with these allegations about Russia. Any way put, the article or the first two comments, are hammering away at violence.

  2. From the google article, “For more information, including how you, your newsroom, or your classroom can get involved in the efforts to debunk myths…”

    and “your classroom”

    • The new era of propaganda, brought to you by your favorite teacher. Reminds me of ‘Channel One’, the free cable news for middle school and jr. high classroom teachers. It usually comes on throughout the classrooms immediately following the pledge of allegiance.

      Playing today on Channel One, ‘How High School Journalism Students Get Trained’

      “credibility and legacy media are the ones you can trust, like the Washington Post and New York Times, says Ari Goldman.” LOL

      • lol, that is funny! They probably can ‘google’ it to make sure it is legit – haha!

        My wife is a high school teacher and they really push, she says, for meaning to come from the students. The social studies department has been in conflict with that idea for years and years, because the department argues, rightly I think, how will the students know the facts of history, society, etc., without being lectured on those facts. Of course, I understand the lectured facts may not be credible, but the point is, doing research on objective facts, from various sources, even showing the current debates and arguments, is how credible research thrives. The objectivity is the emphasis. Yet, what the teachers are continually taught in seminars (In-Service Days we call them here) is students are simply to provide their opinions or their meaning without research. Social studies has traditionally ignored what the administrators teach at the seminars, because it makes no sense to teach history without historical facts. Again giving different viewpoints and interpretations of historic facts is proper academia.

        Another example from the English department. They no longer teach grammar or clarity of thought. As long as the student is able to provide one or two meaningful sentences out of 6 (or so) sentences that is acceptable as an “A”. It does not matter if the rest of the sentences make no sense and are complete gibberish, e.g. An apple drove a car and made it to the tree to fly across the sky. As long as another sentence reads, “Before the man flew on the plane, he drove his car to the airport while eating an apple, which he picked from a tree in his yard.” It literally is that way in the English Department now. Whether all teachers follow the criteria is another question, but from what I understand, a teacher at my wife’s school does follow that criteria.

        Yet, all of this above is the popular and applied hermeneutic of the day.

        • “They probably can ‘google’ it to make sure it is legit – haha!” LOL 🙂 I liked that, a lot.

          “how will the students know the facts of history, society, etc., without being lectured on those facts.
