That is criminal intent to influence the election, in the name of fighting a fictional outside enemy.

Do they really think they can block CNN from creating fake news. The liberal news media tried to influnce the elections and Trump won. This is truly unbelievable.

They just want to be able to control the narrative as they see fit.

Aren’t the geeks intelligent enough to program a virtual “war room”?

This is just censorship. It’s what dictatorships do. There’s nothing new under the sun.

The Left have everything - they own academia, they own the news media, they own entertainment media, they own sports media, they own big corporations in large part (Nike today for example).. and now social media is officially aligning with the Left - disguised as fake news monitoring. But it’s still not going to be enough.

I think you’re mistaken. It is most likely they want to help CNN with sharing the Fake News. LOL
