Harvard’s Fake Guide to Fake News Sites. America’s 21st Century “Index Librorum Prohibitorum”

by Stephen Lendman, via Global Research:

The Index Librorum Prohibitorum was a list of publications deemed heretical, anti-clerical or lascivious, and banned by the Catholic Church. ( See Grendler, Paul F. “Printing and censorship” in The Cambridge History of Renaissance Philosophy, Charles B. Schmitt, ed, Cambridge University Press, 1988, pp. 45–46. Quoted by Wikipedia.

Is this what parents pay $63,000 annually for tuition, room, board and fees – so their children can be ill-served and ill-taught?

Following the 2014 Obama administration Kiev coup, replacing democracy with a “democratic dictatorship” integrated by two neo-nazi parties, Harvard expressed concern about alleged “Russian aggression.” Some faculty members called for US military intervention.

Not a word about US-supported putschists seizing power. Nothing about the most brazen European coup since Mussolini’s 1922 march on Rome.

No explanation about a scheme orchestrated in Washington. Silence about a major crisis in Europe’s heartland still ongoing. Trump inherited Obama’s mess, so far not indicating clearly where he stands on Ukraine.

Harvard is at it again. It’s University Library published a fake guide to “fake news, misinformation, and propaganda.”

It recommends using, Politifact,, Washington Post Fact Checker, and other self-styled fact-checkers, biased against truth-telling on all major issues, acting as censors, trashing reliable alternative sources of news, information and analysis.

It endorses sanitized content acceptable to America’s deep state, abandoning support for speech, media and academic freedoms.

It recommended “tips for analyzing news sources.” Ignore them. Common sense is the best guide, along with distrusting and avoiding media scoundrels.

They’re paid to lie, deceive and feature fake news – what powerful interests want people to know, what’s most important suppressed.

Harvard published a list of hundreds of sites it calls “bias(ed),” “conspira(torial),” “unreliable,” “fake,” and otherwise mislabeled.

Some I’m familiar with are reliable sources, (polar opposite of mainstream media paid to lie), including:

21st Century Wire

Activist Post

Black Agenda Report

Boiling Frogs Post

Common Dreams

Consortium News

Corbett Report



David Stockman Contracorner

    Anyone paying close attention, will eventually discover that NOT ONLY the MSM or FSM (Mainstream or Fakestream Media) serves to DIVERT and DISTRACT people’s attention AWAY FROM REALITY, but in point of fact, the so-called “alternative” media mostly does the same. It’s mainly simply because people don’t have the RESOLVE, the RELENTLESS WILL, to SEEK OUT THE TRUTH FOR THEMSELVES, UNTIL THEY’VE UNCOVERED THE DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE OF HISTORY, WHICH WILL PROVE TO THEM, THE REALITY IN WHICH THEY LIVE, AND HOW WE HAVE ALL ARRIVED WHERE WE ARE, TODAY. Such knowledge is FASCINATING!, and EMPOWERING! It EMPOWERS the INDIVIDUAL over the “collective” or “collectivist” (SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST/ZIONIST) B.S. of the so-called “elites” and their legions of sayanim (“helpers”).

      In other words, many writers in the so-called “alternative” media may just as well be servants of the (Anglo-JUDAIC) “New” (“Jew”) World Order “elites”, as those who work for CNN, if all they ever write about is something that doesn’t even come close to educating or factually informing anyone about the REALITY of the world we live in.

      Oh, look over there! An article about UFO’s!, or Bigfoot! Such topics only serve to distract people’s attention away from what actually matters in this world.

    Message to SGT Report REGULARS:

    Check out the authors/titles/books/info. at the link (below) ~ these guys are really the ‘cutting edge’ of TRUTH (imho). We’ve been lied to about SO MANY historical events ~ and FOR SUCH A LONG TIME! The “Holocaust”, really, HOLO-HOAX, for example. It’s just an ENDLESS STREAM OF LIES!

    If you want the independent media to exist, you need to support the online AUTHORS that PROVIDE it… economic censorship now under way
