OverviewEdit

It dose not include an act of propaganda, satire, a hoax or a parody. It actually is a deliberate disinformation campaign to warp people's common knowledge, maliciously disrupt the the truthfulness of the world's media stream or cause a unfunny mass moral panic and/or health scare just for the hell of it.

What it is notEdit

Propaganda is "information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote a political cause or point of view" (Oxford Online Dictionaries). Propaganda is often associated with the psychological mechanisms of influencing and altering the attitude of a population toward a specific cause, position or political agenda in an effort to form a consensus to a standard set of belief patterns.

A parody (/ˈpærədi/; also called a spoof, send-up, take-off, or lampoon) is a work created to imitate, make fun of, or comment on an original work—its subject, author, style, or some other target—by means of satiric or ironic imitation. As the literary theorist Linda Hutcheon puts it, "parody … is imitation, not always at the expense of the parodied text." Another critic, Simon Dentith, defines parody as "any cultural practice which provides a relatively polemical allusive imitation of another cultural production or practice." Parody may be found in art or culture, including literature, music (although "parody" in music has an earlier, somewhat different meaning than for other art forms), animation, gaming, and film.

A hoax is a deliberately fabricated falsehood made to masquerade as truth. It is distinguishable from errors in observation or judgment, or rumors, urban legends, pseudosciences or April Fools' Day events that are passed along in good faith by believers or as jokes.

News satire, also called fake news, is a type of parody presented in a format typical of mainstream journalism, and called a satire because of its content. News satire has been around almost as long as journalism itself, but it is particularly popular on the web, for example on websites like The Onion or Faking News, where it is relatively easy to mimic a credible news source and stories may achieve wide distribution from nearly any site. News satire relies heavily on irony and deadpan humor.

Two slightly different types of news satire exist. One form uses satirical commentary and sketch comedy to comment on real-world news events, while the other presents wholly fictionalised news stories.

Pitched-news is what a first glance genuine news, but is actually an advert on deeper inspection. If it sounds like an advert or sales pitch, it's just that, an advert!

What it isEdit

Fake news websites publish hoaxes and fraudulent misinformation to drive web traffic inflamed by social media. These sites are distinguished from news satire because they intend to mislead and profit from readers believing the stories to be true. Impacts from the phenomenon have affected multiple countries including: Germany, Indonesia and the Philippines, Sweden, and the United States. Prominent among fraudulent news include false propaganda originating in the countries of Russia (want to annex the wold), America (they are desperate to cause a Rep. vs. Dem. civil war), Macedonia (obsessed with easy money and annexing Greece) and Romania (obsessed with easy money).

The Swedish newspaper The Local described the proliferation of fake news on the Internet as a form of psychological warfare. 

The site http://www.thelastlineofdefense.org is a proven false news site and http://www.nunadisbereel.com is a possible false news site.

The watch list of things that prove it's fakeEdit

  • The clues news is fake-

Web detailsEdit

  1. If a prominent news outlet’s domain name has been appended with .co or .info (e.g., washingtonpost.com.co), that domain likely points to a fake news site.
  2. Some fake news sites don't have any contact information, which easily demonstrates it's phony since they must have a means of contact or a postal address listed by law.
  3. It lacks reliable sources or supporting factual data, it's fake.
  4. It is a recycled story like the 2016 re-release of the CNN “Ford shifts truck production from Mexico to Ohio.” story from August 2015 with a new date on it.

NomencultureEdit

  1. If you have never heard of the location before, it's fake. Corkelstan and Tokgrum are well know non-places in Armenian that were not wiped out by Azeri invasions in 2008. The pro-Bolshevik Ussuri Republic of 1919-1920 was a similar fake state in the Soviet Far East
  2. If you have never heard of the journalist before as with abcnews.com.co's infomus “Jimmy Rustling.”
  3. If you have never heard of the source be for like the infomus “Crime Statistics Bureau – San Francisco”.

Outlandish claimesEdit

  1. It makes outlandish claimes supporting either Brexit or the Trump Wall being uber-necessary for stopping off topic things, like how will either stop earthquakes in New Zealand.
  2. Dramatic claims of plagues like the Ebola outbreak climes concerning the town of Purdon, Texas, in 2015.
  3. Bizarre claims like the LAPD buying millions of $ worth of jet packs on mass in 2010.
  4. If it only portrays 1 point of view or condemns the rights of others to hold their opinions (regardless of the validity of those opinions), then it is at best bias, a hoax, an advert or satire; if not propaganda, full of lies or down right fake!

Bad topicsEdit

  1. All anti-Obama, Putin, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, EU, Arab\Islamic refugees from Syria, Romanian immigrants, the Ukraine and Donald Trump stuff is fake.
  2. All clams that White cops in the USA kill only a minor amount of Blacks, Black are murderng many Whites or Black on Black crime is a major factor in hommicide are all fake.
  3. All modern UFO stuff is fake. Don't beleave it unless it is long ago verified in a book or TV show, like the RAF Bentwaters case was.
  4. The outrageous, xenophobic, Islamophobic, insanely stupid, ASB, crank theories, anti-Semitic, divisive or sexual obscene stuff is fake.
  5. Sex freaks like a woman with 3 tits are fake.
  6. All criticism of the interior, food production and legal policies of Russia, S. Korea, the Ukraine, China and Japan are fake.
  7. All stuff on Nazi UFOs is a fake.
  8. Overtly supporting  the British Conservative Party and\or UKIP, it's fake.
  9. Overtly attacks the British Labour Party and\or the SNP, it's fake.
  10. It is spouting off how unbelievably wonderful Brexit is, it's fake.
  11. All stuff to do with the Pope overtly backing either pediophile priests and\or Donald Trump is fake.

HeadlinesEdit

  1. Provocative and shocking headlines are just pure attention seeking click-bate.

Chat sitesEdit

  1. Don't believe hearsay by weird chat site users, they could be lying or jokeing.
  2. Facebook was caught in 2016 deliberately hosting Macedonian fake news sites on it's site, but this has now changing and was be fixed by early 2017.
  3. If it went viral with online teens via a chat site, thus is most likely fake or at best hoax or satire.
  4. If it seems daft, trivia taken to seriously, puerile, too like the journalist's personal point of view centric, troll bateish, celeb gossip, crank idea centric, uber-politically skewed, dangerously social divisive, click bateish, banal, uber-bias, trollish, flame bateish, unbelievable, ASB or just plain stupid, it's fake.
  5. Don't believe teenage gossip since 83% are so gulibal they can't tell the difference between fact, fiction, jokes and lies.

Edit

  1. Loads of pop-up ads.
  2. Heavy advertising in other places.
  3. Links to celebaty scandels, triva, bias-sites, crank idea sites and titel tatel.
  4. Sensational or sexy ads or links, designed to be clicked (AKA- cick bate) -- "Celebs who did Porn Movies", "Child born with 300 eyes",  "Obama confesses to being gay" or "Naughty Walmart Shoppers Who have no Shame at All".

TV documentariesEdit

Sows like the Discovery Channel's 2013 two-hour special on called "Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives", successfully convinced 70% of viewers that the supposedly rediscovered giant prehistoric shark still existed, but the show almost entirely fictional and the shark is extincted. The History Channel's 2014 special program, "Bigfoot Captured", is also fake. Hunting Hitler was a psudo-history series argues for a huge coverup and went out to convince viewers Hitler escaped to South America and is still alive.

Who gets fooled by itEdit

It is mostly the naive, teenagers and daft. In addition to this the European Populists, Eurosceptics, Trumpists, Brexitears and UKIP voters are particularly prone to taking anything that matches their political dogma and personal experiences at face value. They see 'truth' as a mirror of their beliefs and not a plausible scenario or reliable source issuing the information. They are obsessed beyond reason with storiesb about immigration, celeb gossip, Islamic plots, communist (AKA- anything left of fascist) and\or Chinese conspiracy stories; thus risk crossing paths with the sort of topics and stories false news issue.

Use search engines to double-checkEdit

  1. A simple Google search often will quickly tell you if the news you are reading is fake, because you will find sites refuting it or a criminal case eliminating from it's debunking.
  2. This can be found if especially if you do a reverse image search with Google images and Tineye.
  3. http://www.factcheck.org detects and tries to stop or rebut rumors and dodgy stories from unreliable sites.
  4. http://www.snopes.com detects and tries to stop or rebut rumors and dodgy stories from unreliable sites.
  5. http://www.politifact.com detects and tries to stop or rebut rumors and dodgy stories from unreliable sites.
  6. Google up other stories relating to it for collaborating evidence of it's truthfulness. Believe it if it is mentioned in a reliable source (i.e. on- NHK World, CCTV-9\CGTN, BBC News 24, France 24, Radio Australia International, Euronews, Radio Duetches Welle, VOA, BBC World Service, RFI, Radio Khol Israel, Le Monde, The F.T., De Welt, The Wall St. Journal, The Straights Times, etc). 

A 2008 Wikipedia hoaxEdit

  • The Ussuri Republic was deleted 27 Mar 2008 at 18:50. [1]

OverviewEdit

The Ussuri Republic was a small and relatively minor breakaway Communist rebel enclave just south east of Khabarovsk in the Russian Far East.

HistoryEdit

It was formed on December the 1st 1919 and merged with the Far Eastern Republic on December the 10th 1920. Comrade Mikhail Frunze and the Chinese Beiyang Army briefly fought it out in 1920 during the Battle of the Ussuri River. Although exact figures are not available at the present date, it is reckoned that about 50 Red Russians and 10 local Bolsheviks died along with about 30 Chinese, 20 to 25 Primorsky White Russians, and under 10 Cossacks and a small number of Tzarist Ukrainians. The battle was a narrow Communist victory and the republic lasted until 1920, when it was merged in to the pro-Bolshevik Far Eastern Republic for wider political reasons.
