I'm a huge fan of conspiracy theories, and I love to research conspiracy theories. The problem is that I've noticed that it's becoming more and more difficult to FIND those theories, even to find sites I'd visited long ago that had alternatives to mainstream opinions. I can't find them in the search engines. Then it hit me: during the last couple of years, I'd noticed information going around about how google and Facebook were planning to take action to cut down on hoaxes and "fake news" and were developing algorithms that would filter fake news sites and hoax sites and so on that were spreading hoaxes. And I started to wonder: was this so-called effort to reduce misinformation just a cover to remove any opinions outside the mainstream? Is the REAL reason that I can no longer find conspiracy information on certain topics because there really IS a conspiracy: a conspiracy to hide any ideas that differ from what the-powers-that-be want us to know? What do you think?
