From what i have learnt reading the formerly private and confidential document "Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action" by Shareblue, MediaMatters, American Bridge and CREW, the most important topic for next year is the 2020 election. People need to be informed well before the election happens.
Facebook is working with these companies to remove "misinformation", which in the document they call typically right wing content. The four companies aim to shift power back to the Democratic Party.
In the document, MediaMatters states that: "MediaMatters has already secured access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites. We have also put in place the technology necessary to automatically mine white nationalist message boards and alt-right communities for our archive. We will now develop technologies and processes to systematically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data." That is why right wing content, especially from well-known commentators, is removed or shadowbanned. Personally, i believe that the same 9/11 tactics, those of supposed "good-doing" for society, are being utilised via methods mentioned in the above quote in order to encroach further on the private lives of the public and to further the technological revolution. The media and the public do inaccurately report on events, and removing "fake news" would direct people toward the truth, but this solution can easily turn sour when in the wrong hands.
Content that even mildly supports the work of Trump, which can be from Democrats themselves, will be examined and exposed.
Google, after being in contact with MediaMatters, has "reviewed their terms in order to prohibit so-called fake news sites from usin their advertising network". The four companies are behind the leading research against Trump and right-wingers. They reportedly promote typically LGBT and other minority content and American Bridge has a 16 terabyte vault of debunking material. This vault is used largely by media companies and politicians. American Bridge has, according to the document, 289 research books on Republican candidates, officeholders, and public figures.
