Fact-checking has been a thing in journalism for a long time. Getting the story accurately reported has had a lot to do with the perceived credibility of media sources by the public sector that relies on such companies to get the news on world happenings.
In 2016, a funny thing happened; Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. The Trump era brought to the table many controversial issues. But perhaps one of the biggest things Donald Trump brought awareness to was that political statements were not always accurately reported by the mainstream media.
During the Trump presidency, fact-checking sites and the words fake news appeared on the scene like never before. In an instant, everyone was fact-checking news stories and news articles beyond what had ever been witnessed.
I believe that nothing “huge” in the world happens by chance. This is especially true when we’re discussing politics and US presidential elections.
Donald Trump was elected president of the United States in 2016 because the powers that be wanted a polarizing and controversial character in that political position at that particular time in history.
The controlling powers wanted to create the public perception that there was a tremendous need for fact-checking. The controlling powers wanted the words fake news and fact-checking to become broadly advertised and accepted by the members of American society.
Fact-checking websites became the new gatekeepers of truth in journalism. Suddenly, everything that was being reported on the Internet had the words fact-checked at the beginning of the publication.
People were unknowingly being conditioned to rely on fact-checkers to tell them if something was true or not. The presence of so many fact-checkers coming on the scene in 2016 was due to the attention that Donald Trump brought to the words fake news.
All the hype about fact-checking and fake news had been preplanned by the powers that be. The gatekeepers that decided what was true and what was fake in the news were suddenly in place and ready to marginalize alternative media reporting.
The fact-checkers would play an important part in censoring and restricting the flow of scientific information about the future global genocide that had also been preplanned for decades.
Presently, anything not fact-checked or given approval by the CDC or other government regulatory agencies concerning COVID-19 is not accessible to the public.
Any news or opinions about the world pandemic and the COVID vaccines that stray from officialdom are broadly censored by news agencies, social media platforms, and anything else that the American public can access to gain an understanding of what is happening in the world.

Like the question, “who will “police” the police?”
Who “fact” checks the fact checkers?
… and that’s been a question, I’ve had for a long time before Trump was (s)elected to be president.
I believe what I believe – because… well… because I don’t/won’t just blindly follow.
I am me – I am free
***well, not really
Thanks for sharing, Kenneth! 🙂
Great observation, John!
The controversial Trump put fake news on the map.
And the world was being acclimated to rely on so called fact checkers for so called truth.
(And your “I hate fake news” depiction of Trump gave me a chuckle! 😂)
Thanks, Lisa! 👍🙂
