Scientists develop ‘fake news’ vaccine, inoculating people against lies

LD:  It seems like a dream come true: no one will fall for the lies of the media any more. Because we will all be fed a ‘truth vaccine’ which will inoculate us against lies. From now on, this vaccine will enable us to distinguish unerringly between the true and the false. Never again will we be taken in by ‘fake news’.  And who will supply us with this miraculous ‘truth vaccine?’ Yes, you guessed it — the fake media itself!

The term “fake news” was coined by the corporate media in an effort to discredit independent online news outlets. Unfortunately for the corporate media that has backfired as it has become clear that the corporate is itself the source of much “fake news”.

Nor is it a coincidence that the following article claims that “fake news” has been credited “with helping the vote for both Brexit and for Donald Trump”.

The fact that the corporate media was caught completely off-guard by the Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s election win speaks volumes about their “fake news” claims.

More to the point: The Independent is trumpeting these claims. Readers may recall that this is the same newspaper that in March 2000 announced that “Snowfalls are just a thing of the past“. Since then The Independent has removed that particular article from its archives, but that didn’t stop some commentators noting the prediction and some websites preserving the article in PDF format.

With this dubious past record in mind we think that claims that scientists have developed a “vaccine” against fake news is yet more of the same. In plain language: bull$%!!. (Ed).

Scientists develop ‘fake news’ vaccine,
helping inoculate people against lies

Andrew Griffin — The Independent Jan 23, 2017

Scientists have created what they say is a vaccine against the kind of fake and hyper-partisan news that is spreading quickly across Facebook.

The researchers claim that by showing people lies, they can teach them to better see the truth. The solution works in a similar way to a real vaccine – exposing people to a small amount of the problem to help them better respond to larger amounts of it.

The solution could help social networks and news organisations battle against fake news, which has been credited with helping the vote for both Brexit and for Donald Trump.

The study claims that if people are shown well-established facts about climate change and then lies about it, the latter will cancel out the former.

But if the correct information is combined with a small “dose” of misinformation then it will have less resonance, according to the study.

Giving people a small piece of the data helps “inoculate” them against the kinds of tactics that people use to spread fake information and use it to political ends.

Lead author Dr Sander van der Linden, from the University of Cambridge, said: “Misinformation can be sticky, spreading and replicating like a virus.

“We wanted to see if we could find a ‘vaccine’ by pre-emptively exposing people to a small amount of the type of misinformation they might experience. A warning that helps preserve the facts.

“The idea is to provide a cognitive repertoire that helps build up resistance to misinformation, so the next time people come across it they are less susceptible.”

A disguised experiment presented more than 2,000 US residents from a diverse range of backgrounds with two claims about global warming.

The first was that the scientific community was rigidly divided over climate change; with one website alleging “over 31,000″ scientists agreed there was no credence that the phenomenon was accelerated by human CO2 release.

Also shown was the accurate statement that “97% of scientists agree on man-made climate change”.

Participants were asked to guess the percentage of scientific consensus on the issue, with those shown the fact estimating agreement was around 90%, while those exposed to the myth around 63%.

This was a jump of 20 percentage points (from 71%) in opinion difference based on what was believed beforehand among those who heard the scientific fact and a dip of nine percentage points (from 72%) on the opposite side.

In a group shown both claims consecutively, however, there was barely any shift from what was thought by participants initially (a drop of 0.5% to 73%) – suggesting the myth neutralised the lie.

A pair of groups were then shown the scientifically-supported fact, but with a caveat.

One heard simply that “some politically-motivated groups use misleading tactics to try and convince the public that there is a lot of disagreement among scientists” while the other had the specific myth analysed.

They were then presented with the misinformation.

Despite exposure to fake facts, a jump in the direction of the true figure still followed – up 6.5 percentage points, to 80%, among the former group and up nearly 13 percentage points, to 84%, with the latter.

  1. great news.
    I wanted to buy some Holocaust shares which are sure to go up once the truth vaccine is forcibly administered to school children but unfortunately was told that Holocaust Corp(se) is a privately held company headquartered in Khazaria, the outsiders can only buy, not sell.

    I guess they are afraid of cheap knockoffs flooding the market and diluting the quality of the fine cosmetic products and furnishings.

  2. To use the idea of Global Warming as a means to refute “Fake News” is in itself an example of “Fake News”. Global Warming is a hoax concocted by the global elite to deindustrialize the West and to introduce global taxes as a further step towards global government. The world is not becoming warmer and polar ice is increasing. For info about the Global Warming hoax, see: ‘Global Warming, the greatest scam in history’ claims founder of Weather Channel, Express, June 9, 2015

    Fortunately, Trump is aware of this scam. The elite is getting nervous and is trying to save lies with lies. The Internet is the real “vaccine” against Fake News. We are living in interesting times !

    1. even if the warming is true (I honestly don’t know), deindustrializing the west is counterproductive, ie, has the opposite effect because it results in accelerated industrialization of east which has less stringent environmental protection controls.

      1. “Industrialization”, otherwise known as the implementation of technology, allows a large group of people to dwell adjacent to potable water sources, and breath air in crowded cities. It is technology that produces the ability to exist in harmony with Nature and still maintain a decent standard of living.

        For Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Deep Leftist, Environmentalist riff raft, this is difficult to grasp, even though is a prima facie concept. They are either Luddites (anti-technical or scientific), or pseudo-scientific, choosing restricted, ineffective, valueless technologies that are really designed to further Jewish interests of greater Command and Control Big Government, and preselected endeavors that Jews preposition themselves for to parasitically rake off public funds. “Green Certification” is one of these, as is the proliferation of regulations and adjudication. Look up the word, “Lawfare” to understand how Jew uses this tactic in the ACLU, ADL, SPLC, and more.

        I hate ignorance, atavistic romantic palaver and dross, based on emotion and “feeling” rather than thought and knowledge. A pox on all them. They deserve a good public thrashing, caning-Singapore style.

      2. Lobro,

        The troposphere is warmed by sunspots, and only sunspots, nothing else. That is where you/we live – in the troposphere, the lowest layer of the atmosphere. Forget the global warming hype, our problem in the troposphere is far greater.

    2. Brilliant, accurate, and to the point Franklin. As Pat and others have noted, the Global Warming scam is the vehicle for UN Agenda 21. There is an element, however, I would very much suggest further research into. My own has been most rewarding. I have mentioned before Operation Argus (see Wikipedia) Operation Fishbowl and other atmospheric nuclear testing in the 1950’s. Casual investigation will also inform us that the Soviet tests were equally large, one test the largest of them all. Then, the (atmospheric) nuclear test ban treaty of August 5, 1963. If you look into the writings of Canadian Engineer Wilbert Smith (who was granted very special access to some of the top of the top secret US research, you will find he mentions an unknown collateral side effect to nuclear fission and fusion explosions, possibly other unknowns as well. Operation Argus of course was intended to blast holes in Earth’s Ozone layer as a defense experiment involving radio communication and a certain theory. The damage done will continue to take it’s course, and will require a very long time indeed in human terms to allow Earth to repair the damage. So behind the scenes there are some issues that are not advertised and absolutely avoided in public discussion. Agenda 21 is not a remotely sane program to address these issues, however, but the predatory act of morally bankrupt Internationalists. Like many things, there is more than meets the eye and extremely serious and complex areas to investigate – I think many who read this site will find the field quite fascinating. Disinformation is as old as time (Master Sun Tzu, and so on) but recently it’s gotten out of control with MSM credibility vanishing daily.

      1. Winston –

        Thanks. (I write briefly due to muscle problems.)

        I have seen the interview with William Pawelec.

        UFOs are not credible to me. I call them IFOs…. With the belief that all of them are actually – “Identified”….. by military… 🙂

        Too bad Bill didn’t have a cellphone-cam in 1966.

        If the stories of the past are valid.. we should see thousands of videos uploaded from cell-phone-cameras now.

        Maneuvering all of humanity according to UN Agenda-21 IS in full-swing now. That will be the case until the last part of 21st century (21)…. around 2080 or so… enter: UN Agenda-22.

        Man-made changes do not have near the effect of heat, ash and pH of underwater volcanoes and ‘black-smokers’ of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge or the Rim of Fire in the Pacific.

        —A Trick of A Founding Fraudster—
        Ben Franklin admitted in his autobiography that he wrote a massive amount of FAKE NEWS and put out rumors to his ‘junta’ club to see how he could control society to move in a designed direction without their knowing who wrote it. He even guided – CONTROLLED – laws..!!

        IN PART:

        “I began now to turn my thoughts a little to public affairs, beginning, however, with small matters. The city watch was one of the first things that I conceiv’d to want regulation. It was managed by the constables of the respective wards in turn; the constable warned a number of housekeepers to attend him for the night. Those who chose never to attend paid him six shillings a year to be excus’d, which was suppos’d to be for hiring substitutes, but was, in reality, much more than was necessary for that purpose, and made the constableship a place of profit; and the constable, for a little drink, often got such ragamuffins about him as a watch, that respectable housekeepers did not choose to mix with. Walking the rounds, too, was often neglected, and most of the nights spent in tippling. I thereupon wrote a paper, to be read in Junto, representing these irregularities, but insisting more particularly on the inequality of this six-shilling tax of the constables, respecting the circumstances of those who paid it, since a poor widow housekeeper, all whose property to be guarded by the watch did not perhaps exceed the value of fifty pounds, paid as much as the wealthiest merchant, who had thousands of pounds worth of goods in his stores.

        “On the whole, I proposed as a more effectual watch, the hiring of proper men to serve constantly in that business; and as a more equitable way of supporting the charge the levying a tax that should be proportion’d to the property. This idea, being approv’d by the Junto, was communicated to the other clubs, but as arising in each of them; and though the plan was not immediately carried into execution, yet,
        by preparing the minds of people for the change, it PAVED the way for the LAW obtained a few years after, when the members of our clubs were grown into more influence.”

      2. UFOs are not credible to me

        me neither.

        i read some study a while ago, don’t press me on particulars because i don’t remember, only the overall discussion, that said that in order for the cognitive intelligence to develop, not only must there be astrophysical arrangement of star-planet pairing satisfying very precise parameters in terms of sizes and distances but even under ideal circumstances, the odds of life appearing were exceptionally tiny, yet Earth beat them (life started at about 8 billion years big bang time), so if there is life elsewhere, it will happen much later in the evolution of universe, say, when it is 20+ billion years old.
        In other words, we are very early.
        Not to mention that if some other bunch managed to beat the odds, they would most likely be millions of light years away.
        So no ufos outside planet hollywood.

        and if there were any, why wouldn’t they go for a nice holocaust, are they all deniers?
        To me, that’s the solid proof there ain’t any of either (absence of holocaust points to absence of ufos – what’s the point of sending extraterrestrial libtards instead of galactic fumigators).

  3. I wish them good luck launching that project. Once you have taken the Red Pill, there is no turning back. The only way is further down the Rabbit Hole. At least I’m not going back to “true news”. Btw I saw that friday is International Hallowedhoax Day. Let’s try to wake up at least one person each to the truth about the jewish lies and all their scams.


    As a reporter for the New York Times, Miller pimped the “weapons of mass destruction” mantra that was used as a pretext for the 2003 war with Iraq. The article is only a couple of lines, but people’s responses is/are the real entertainment.

  5. Toejams favorite website to find out what is really going on with the world wide climate is:
    There may be as many as 10 millions undersea volcanoes. These undersea eruptions will slightly warm the oceans which in turns warms the atmosphere while dumping CO2 in the oceans acidifying same. Also some of these seafloor volcanoes and eruptions under the North and South pole ice caps result in ice berg calving. None of this is man made. This activity will bring on another ice age. We won’t live to see it. But after several centuries the process of building ice age glaziers will start. It is a process that that repeats every 10-12 thousand years. We are, right now, living at the end of a inner ice age warm period that started at the end of the last ice age 12,000 years ago. It repeats like clock work. Yes, there is “climate change”. It changes from summer to winter to spring to autumn just like clock work. This repeating clock may have something to do with the 26,000 year rotation of our solar system around our suns twin. Most stars are binary.

    1. TJ –

      Yep. I posted this at the same time as yours. Yours is more well documented.

      “Man-made changes do not have near the effect of heat, ash and pH of underwater volcanoes and ‘black-smokers’ of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge or the Rim of Fire in the Pacific.”

    2. It’s my understanding that multiple cosmic phenomena affect the earth’s weather: the elliptic orbit around the sun which can be distorted by proximity in passing closer to other planets, the “wobbling” of the earth upon its axis, increasing and decreasing sun fusion intensity, “Sun spots”, eruptions on the surface, etc., cause and effect changes in the ionosphere caused by sub atomic charged particles from the sun, volcanic activity which can throw up some much debris that infra-red and ultra-violet rays are attenuated.

      Overall, much of science and especially “Climb-it ‘Sciene'” is the result of over application of the Deductive Method and under application of Induction. When NGOs of the Jewish Billionaires and Jewish induced government want a conclusion, they give the grant and funding to someone who backwardly find evidence to support it, making the Deduction not a hypothesis, but a conclusion.

    3. “Most stars are binary”. They certainly are. Look at Cher, Madonna, Jaime Foxx, Ashley Jughead, etc, etc. They blink on and off at random, like a circuit breaker that arcs and sparks and eventually shorts out to ground.

  6. @ Pat : You mentioned UFO’s – I was referring to the unknowns of Nuclear Science. I’m very glad you saw the Pawalec interview. I wanted you to see it because of the “Four Horsemen” (Pawalec and his murdered State Department friend’s description of Personnel who would show up completely unannounced at top drawer “Beltway Bandits” presentation of the newest state of the art tech with all the right very top security clearances who somehow learned of the ongoing research as if by – the dark arts or something and grab everything, arrange for talented inventors to never have to work again, tenure at top Universities if they wanted it, and so forth. Mr. Pawalec, a career beltway bandit engineer, gave the interview with the severe conditions that it would not be posted until after his death, understandably, given what happened to his friend. We occasionally discuss “deep state” here and there is more – but you have to look, and quite hard. Suffice it to say there is more to things than meets the eye, as you and others have noted, rare indeed given the pathetic state of socially acceptable MSM “History”, “Holocaust” narratives, racketeering in medicine, with many others – MSM “news” being the one everyone seems to be finally noticing. On “UFO’s” – I don’t blame you for skepticism, however if you look briefly at the events in Colares, Brazil circa 1977- 1978 you will find the Brazilian AF was called in for some very serious reasons. Col. Uribe, who headed the investigation, gave some testimony of their official findings before his untimely death. Researchers will find a great deal more from Military service personnel, government persons, scientists like Wilbert Smith, the field grows daily. In personal correspondence with Polish military historian Igor Witkowski (over 400 published works) he mentioned the Russian approach as being quite different from the tired discredited Western official method. Acknowledgement,officially, but essentially – as far as tech and so forth, “mind your own business if you know what’s good for you”, which given the nature of “allies” like those from zion Internationale I find much more sensible. What Mr. Pawalec may or may have not seen I can’t speak for. What I can say is I come from an Aerospace family. My father was a Pan Am Captain (37 years) mother a PAA stewardess (and private pilot) one uncle flew to Ploesti on B-17 bombing mission (among others), another Uncle a PAA pilot and later a private pilot well into old age, another uncle worked for Eastern Air lines. I grew up around many others. Notable was a check pilot, Captain A. O. Powell (PAA) who gave my father his routine required checks. Square jawed, non-drinker, non smoker, crew cut by the book ex-military like many if not most of PAA pilots. He saw a ‘Cigar’ shaped metallic craft when returning from Europe when flying over Boston in 1947, which he immediately reported to the Army Air Force (in those days there was no separate AF service) upon landing – and they took him very seriously indeed. Different times. There’s more, much more, but this isn’t the time or place. That unidentified craft exist is to me undeniable but WHAT they are and WHO is flying them is a different matter.

    1. @Pat: PS: I know the feeling and hope your muscle problems improve. I use Tiger Balm quite frequently.

      1. PPS: Intelligence author ‘Richard Deacon’ claims in his SIS (MI-6) History Benjamin Franklin was a British agent. There is a book by Cecil Curry “Code Number 72” presenting the case. Some things from the American Revolution are actually still classified -or were, see October 1, 2014 “Newly Declassified CIA Documents Says Ben Franklin was a British Agent”.

    2. @ Winston

      “That unidentified craft exist is to me undeniable but WHAT they are and WHO is flying them is a different matter.”

      I agree since UFO have been witnessed by too many people for a long time. The “what,” “who,” and why provides excellent food for propaganda, misdirection, and distraction since there is nothing we can do about them.

      1. Highly educated, well respected medical researcher, physician, and author, the late Michael Crichton once said “global warming is caused by aliens.” He went on to explain that most people believe aliens visiting the Earth exist, and most people believe global warming was real, though there is absolutely no scientific evidence to support either one actually exists.

      2. @Ungenius, The field is quite interesting – you are quite right about certain parties exploiting the phenomena in the same way as CIA’s creation of “Conspiracy Theories” way back when to discredit persons who don’t fall in with the official line. Research, however is one thing we can do. Again, a simple Internet search “Brazil UFO disclosure” (The Brazilian government declassified and released several hundred documents and the Brazilian Air Force officially received a committee to openly discuss 20 May 2005 and examine classified documents in two separate military facilities in Brasilia, the federal capital. Naturally, there was no mention in zog media. While 3 separate dates of operational research (1954, 1977, 1986) were covered, further research into 1977 is most rewarding, though in part quite horrific. It is my suspicion that the events of 1977 led to the so-called “Rockefeller UFO Briefing Document” sponsored by billionaire philanthropist Laurance S. Rockefeller, and coordinated by Marie Galbraith, wife of investment banker Evan Galbraith who served as US Ambassador to France during the Reagan Administration. The report is a very mild but accurate overview produced at the time for limited circulation to Mr. Rockefeller’s wealthy friends, copies today are collectors items. The report (which makes no mention of the events in Colares, Brazil 1977-8) has since been republished in inexpensive trade paperback format. In my view, the potentially good news is Mr. Rockefeller’s continued requests to the US government went absolutely nowhere, despite personally lobbying First Lady of the time H.R. Clinton and many others.

  7. “The term “fake news” was coined by the corporate media in an effort to discredit independent online news outlets.”

    The Editor’s statement is true, but begs the questions as to why was it introduced at the time it was. The outbreak of satanic pedophile Pizzagate in the independent internet media coincides with the outbreak of “fake news” accusations by the mainstream media. The mainstream media and the Pizzagate pedophiles obviously have somethings in common like heavy jewish involvement, the CIA, and the Mossad.

    If there were actually a vaccine against “fake news” it would never be released since it would mean the end of the lying mainstream media and lying governments. Obviously, a vaccine against “fake news” is “fake news.”

  8. The most disturbing aspect of the subject of “fake news” is that cattle control methods are openly discussed. The cattle must be diverted by bars, electric fences and gates. The cattle have no right to make up their own minds. And, the cattle agree!!!

    The Tavistock instutute no longer needs to hide in the shadows. Their members should directly control governments as Ministers. Let us dispense with employing hookers, bribery and corruption on elected officials to exercise control. Tavistock governments for all nations!!
