The Associated Press Just ‘Fact Checked’ Another Meme

“The fabricated screenshot is blurry, and there is slight discoloration behind some of the words.”

The Associated Press has ‘fact checked’ a meme that suggested Shinzo Abe, the former Japanese president who was shot dead last week, had said he was going to leak information that could lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton.

Yes really.

The meme spread quickly on social media following the horrific assassination of Abe during a speech at a campaign rally in the western city of Nara.

The point of the meme is to highlight that a startling number of people who have formerly worked under the Clintons have been killed in mysterious circumstances or committed ‘suicide’.

Yes, it may be considered somewhat insensitive to post this on the same day as Abe’s assassination, but no one was seriously suggesting it was real.

No matter, the AP’s ‘fact checkers’ ran an investigation anyway.

The AP further noted that “Archived images of his legitimate Twitter account spanning several days this week, including as recently as Tuesday, show that these account details have not changed. Further, no such tweet about Clinton currently appears on his profile.”

The in depth probe continued,“A translation of the Japanese text in the fabricated tweet shows that it is a truncated phrase that does not mention Clinton. It says, ‘to repeat, I,’”.

And on it went…

“There are other signs the image has been manipulated. The fabricated screenshot is blurry, and there is slight discoloration behind some of the words.”

And there was more…

“The Japanese characters by the incorrect username appear pixelated and stretched. It also uses a different typeface for some words than the one that is typically displayed on Twitter.”

Well, thank god that is cleared up.

This is not the first time memes have been subject to such ‘fact checks’ by the truth overlords.

It isn’t even the first time a meme purporting that Hillary Clinton committed a crime has been fact checked.

These so called fact checkers aren’t impartial, independent outlets, they are merely hyper-partisan information attack dogs working on behalf of the regime.

As we highlighted last month, USA Today, which is used as a ‘fact checker’ by many social media platforms, was forced to delete 23 articles from its website after an investigation found one of its reporters had fabricated sources.

    UK Police Chief Says Authorities Need to Stop ‘Wasting Time’ Investigating People Being Offended

    Public is sick of it.

    The Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police has asserted that authorities need to stop ‘wasting time’ investigating people being offended on social media, noting that the public is sick of it.

    Chief Constable Stephen Watson made the comments during an interview with the Telegraph.

    Watson acknowledged that Greater Manchester Police had “become too assiduous at interpreting some of the rules to mean that if anybody at any time for whatever reason is offended, there somehow needs to be a police record.”

    “We’ve got ourselves involved in stuff which is just not a policing matter, we’ve wasted our time as a result and we’ve caused people to question whether, frankly, we know what we’re doing,” the senior officer added.

    Likely next Prime Minister Liz Truss has also vowed to put a stop to police investigating social media posts.

    However, despite the College of Policing issuing guidance that officers need to focus on real crimes and not interfering in “debates on Twitter,” the practice still continues.

    As we highlighted yesterday, a British Army veteran was arrested by police in Aldershot for re-posting a meme on Facebook critical of the LGBT community.

    51-year-old Darren Brady was placed in handcuffs by Hampshire Police after being told he had caused someone “anxiety” online.

    People in the UK are routinely arrested for posting ‘offensive’ tweets and other social media content.

    Former police officer James Watts was arrested and given 20 weeks in prison for the ‘crime’ of posting offensive George Floyd memes in private WhatsApp and Facebook group chats.

    Meanwhile, car thefts have effectively been legalized in major cities and police say they don’t even have time to investigate two out of three burglaries.
