Jokes?

Hey, Zen.  Come out and play!

 

I have no issue with the way Google handled that meme.  The funny thing is it supports my earlier claim that we have enough homegrown fake news.  In other words, focusing on Russians is a red herring.

I realize both you and Robert made that comment the week before the 2016 election on a thread I started, but what we didn't realize at the time was the scope of Russian involvement. In fact, what you posted proves my point that you don't need collusion to show Russian bots and American malcontents were magnifying "Fake News," to make it look like more people were spreading like minded content that was not true...The thing that has changed is NOW Facebook is trying to prevent it whereas 4 years ago they were promoting & profiting off of it. 

 

That's my take and I also contend  the toilet paper memes started back in March was a harbinger of what was to come to promote idiotic memes and "Fake News," to persuade folks against taking Covid 19 seriously.  I feel those probably started abroad...

It's kind of ironic for the government to be pressuring Facebook to filter other people's speech.  But yeah... I get it.  I saw the documentary.  What happens when the government controls social media?

The Government doesn't control social media and that is why Facebook is trying to get ahead of it--There is no FCC for social media.

I hope you and your family are doing well and not sure what how why you are equating the two. But yes, government controls "the major media players." and they have editorial process they go through as not to promote "Fake News."

I agree and look what started it off, a political meme spread on Facebook that was not funny. Irony is a ***** sometimes and as I pointed out, those toilet paper memes weren't "Jokes"/funny, but designed to be passed on social media to denigrate an issue or make people look stupid. Fwiw, I like Jeff but if his first instinct is to find a RBG meme and post it on the Klipsch Forum I think that brings us full circle in agreeing it ain't funny. It also proves the point that it takes more effort responding to memes than it does to post them--THAT is the Social Media/Forum discussions weaponized propaganda strategy being used by the Russians and sources right here in the USA.

 

EDIT: I apologize for not posting anything funny in this thread but Jeff invited me to participate I wanted to also give a conscientious response along with  a *confused* LIKE to his observation. These are fun things to discuss possibly on another thread. :)

I heard a musician define “perfect pitch” as throwing an accordion into a dumpster where it lands on a banjo.
