USA Really Is Under Fire: New Attacks From Facebook, Twitter, Apple, LinkedIn and MSM

17572

After a massive campaign in the American MSM and hysteria on  Social media which aimed to shut down USA Really’s website and accounts, Facebook silently suspended USA Really’s page and group on its platform.

Now when users try entering USA Really’s page or group on Facebook just to read the articles or to leave their feedback, they see only a message saying “Sorry, this content isn't available right now. The link you followed may have expired, or the page may only be visible to an audience you're not in.”

If they try to open the link to USA Really’s post, Facebook is directing users to the following notice:

“This page isn't available. The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed.”

Normally, if someone repeatedly violates Facebook’s standards, the social media platform may limit the user’s ability to post or use Facebook. ”No need to say, that USA Really has not violated any Facebook policies or community guidelines and standards. “[…] in some cases, words or terms that might otherwise violate our standards are used self-referentially or in an empowering way. When this is the case, we allow the content, but we expect people to clearly indicate their intent, which helps us better understand why they shared it. Where the intention is unclear, we may remove the content,” Facebook’s community standards say.

No clarification or warnings were provided as usual, there’s simply no explanation as to what exactly USA Really has done wrong or when the news agency missed the warning signs. Facebook simply did not give USA Really any chance to clarify its intention or to remove the content by itself. Instead, the social platform silently suspended independent news media from its services.

Readers may only guess what exactly made Facebook’s management so outraged. Probably, the fact that an article from August titled “Phenomenon of Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women Has Become an Epidemic in the US” was shared on Facebook almost 80,000 times? The story tells about terrible facts: that four out of five Native American women in the United States are expected to encounter violence in their lifetimes; one in three are raped during their lifetime; and the murder rates of Native women exceed ten times the national average in some tribal and urban communities. US authorities gather missing person statistics for every demographic except for Native American women.

Or perhaps Facebook was offended by the USA Really’s story about Anna, which became seriously ill when she was a preteen and was suffering from permanent overdosing with Haloperidol, Lorazepam, Zonegran at the Harbor Regional Center (HRC) in Torrance, CA? Once being at home group, Anna was getting worse again. During one particularly difficult episode, Anna’s mother Revekka begged the police to take Anna to a specialized neurological hospital, but instead they took her to prison where she was denied her medication, which led to seizures. Riva had to post $3000 bail to get her daughter out. The same thing happened again many years later.

Major U.S. MSM considers all these stories to be “fake news” and “Russian state propaganda” because it didn’t fit with what all the “Important People” from the Hill or Silicon Valley knew to be true.

These type of attacks on USA Really and other independent media outlets are coordinated and have been going on for some time already. On September 26th, the Washington Post published an article that served as a dog whistle for Facebook to ban USA Really.

“In June, Russia founded a new media outlet in the United States, called USA Really. Much like its predecessors, this organization writes about divisive political issues such as the death penalty, race and LGBTQ+ rights. But just as no nation would launch a military attack if it thought its target was prepared to fight back and likely to win, so nations aren’t going to waste time and resources launching an informational attack that is likely to be repelled”, WaPo wrote.

Another watchdog from one the largest U.S. media giants, CNN, has reached out to Facebook asking it to “investigate” USA Really’s accounts. “The Facebook account for USA Really is still live,” A CNN reporter on the cybersecurity for elections beat (and tracking Russian trolls, as he represents himself), said on his Twitter just couple of days ago: “@facebook says it is investigating and was aware of the account before CNN contacted them about it”.

CNN was not alone. The New York Times also reported USA Really to Facebook.

“A Facebook spokesman said the company had enough evidence that the first page was involved in coordinated inauthentic activity to take action against it. He said the group’s second page was being investigated, and that the company had been aware of the account before being contacted by The New York Times,” they wrote proudly.

Of course, no specific examples whatsoever were officially or unofficially provided to back up this claim, neither to NYTimes, nor to USA Really. But were there any at all? Obviously, not.

“It’s a very overt operation,” said Lee Foster, an intelligence analysis manager with the cybersecurity firm FireEye. “Perhaps it’s an attempt to move this type of activity more into the mainstream, to try to legitimize it as a media entity so that it’s tougher to take action against it,” the NYT quoted cybersecurity analyst said.

Another U.S. media platform The Verge is repeating the old fake: “In June, the cybersecurity firm FireEye found significant ties between USA Really and Russia’s Internet Research Agency, a notorious troll farm named in a recent Mueller indictment. USA Really is operated out of the same St. Petersburg office as the IRA, and much of the technical work on the website was done by employees of the Federal News Agency, which has been linked to both the IRA and the Kremlin”.

Interesting to read here, that now Mueller and his cybersecurity experts place USA Really in St. Petersburg. Moreover, The Verge is calling USA Really’s chief editor Alexander Malkevich “IRA founder”. Fake news at its best. That is why American readers are so distressed by the silliness and propaganda that had come to pervade American journalism. The U.S. mainstream media is falling into a pattern of groupthink on issue after issue, just ignoring factual information and generating fear-mongering, chauvinism and russophobia. USA Really is waiting for an apology from The Verge for their lies and false accusations.

MSM reporters and their ‘cyber hounds’ are chasing authors and the team around everywhere on the web. Buzzfeed in their investigation tracks down a news agency’s staff like they are criminals, this time “detectives” say that “USA Really is working on an IP address located in Missouri”.

It seems that it is the exact reason why major Western MSM is in panic and fear when they only hear about USA Really or visit the website.

USA Really is looking at the underlying problems of modern democracy, particularly the insidious manipulation of citizens by government propaganda and the accomplice role played by the mainstream media. Rather than encouraging diversity in analyses, especially on topics of war and peace, today’s mainstream media takes a perverse pride in excluding responsible, alternative views.

On the same day, Linked In started blocking access to USA Really’s website from its platform, directing users to the following notice: “Malicious Website Suspected. Sorry, there was a problem with the following link: https://usareally.com/. This link has been reported as participating in malicious behavior or abuse.”

When trying to tweet link to USA Really, Twitter now shows the notification: "This request looks like it might be automated. To protect our users from spam and other malicious activity, we can't complete this action right now. Please try again later." Apple now suspended accounts of USA Really’s employees as well, prohibiting them using Apple’s services.

At the same time, Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg in his interview to Kara Swisher (published Jul 18, 2018 on recode.net) stated: “…there’s a set of people who deny that the Holocaust happened. …I don’t believe that our platform should take that down… you can put up that content on your page, even if people might disagree with it or find it offensive”.

USA Really has sent a request for an interview to Mr. Zuckerberg letting him to clarify his position. We received no reply neither from Zuckerberg, nor from his speaker, our proposal was simply ignored.

Now it is clear for everyone that in the U.S. denying Holocaust in Facebook is not a crime, but for posting links to USA Really user will be suspended with no right of appeal. The decline of the U.S. press foreshadowed disasters that would come when independent journalists failed to alert the public about impending dangers.

But the major Western news outlets and techno-social platforms began to see journalism differently. It became their strange duty to shut down questioning of the Official News, even when the Official News had major holes and made little sense, even when the evidence went in a different direction and serious analysts were disputing the groupthink.

Suspending USA Really’s group and page, deleting and editing USA Really’s employees private Facebook accounts, closing down all of affiliated channels on SoundCloud, Tumblr, Google, Apple, Youtube, Instagram, Twitter etc is just another clear evidence of the ongoing attack on free speech and honest independent media by a resentful and corrupt U.S. establishment.
