‘EVERYTHING IS NEGOTIABLE‘ – US ‘Free Speech’ – (Freedom of Speech – The First Amendment) with many Americans paying the ultimate price with their life, arguably free speech is not-free. Also free speech not-absolute, always within certain limits by the individual or a community to articulate their opinions and ideas without fear of retaliation – freedom of expression is recognized as a human right. The free press is what ensures our freedom. However, along with the honorable journalists (including those which have given their lives) uncovering unjust false-narratives and seeking to fairly report the unbiased facts, conversely; false-narratives via editorial bias from capitalized hidden-agenda influence, can undermine the free press. Free speech is NOT FREE – there are plenty of inherent costs for the reporter and for the reader… based-upon the ‘public advertising model’ you get what you pay for; ‘Fake News’ – ‘Fake Views’ – ‘Fake Likes’ – ‘Fake People’ – ‘Fake Self-Promotion’ and disinformation can manipulate the audience at a very high-cost…

Disinformation is one of the biggest threats our democracy faces. Like our reporting on dark money, it is one of those stories behind all the other stories. So we want to build a team dedicated to tracking and exposing the forces behind disinformation as a new reporting priority… read our plan (MoJo’s nonprofit, independent journalism) and get involved—and join us with a tax-deductible donation today. Some things to think about:
- Is the audience really interested in the facts or merely satisfied with entertainment?
- Is it possible any longer, with the ability to troll and manufacture facts with unvetted stories by unvetted entities and bots, to actually and correctly understand the facts of any specific matter?
- How does one REALLY substantiate FACTS from fiction?
For over 5-decades TheFutureWay ‘Fact-Based’ Research Team have continued to research from the best available facts, and provide an option with a ‘Fact-Based’ approach.

Former Fox News Analyst Calls Network a ‘Destructive Propaganda Machine’ – The New York Times – Propaganda has been around forever, today with social media its now described and classified as ‘Fake News’ (#FakeNews). For at least the recent century, global governments via their deep covert operations teams and military have engaged in manufacturing their own information, primarily to influence an audience and further their own agenda; this is commonly called propaganda – One such newspaper which began publication on 5 May 1912, is called ‘Pravda‘ – ironically or intentionally, the Russian word pravda, is defined in English as truth – Jump to current day and it’s OBVIOUS that the new Tech Social Media is being utilized for this very same affect. The facebook community is encountering a review from the US Government for its envolvement with Russian advertisements.
