"Fact checking" & "Disinformation" hype in media and politics, what's going on?

Would love your take on this.

In politics and media lately we are seeing a strong rise in "fact checking" and "disinformation" propaganda in the last years.

For example last week 80 groups of fact-checkers have sent a message to YouTube accusing it of being "one of the major conduits of online disinformation and misinformation worldwide".
I have done some research into these groups.

All these "fact checkers" are pro-injections, are against (extreme) right wing politics, pro-EU, pro-official-government communication, pro-immigration, are anti-christian and are for strong pro-governmental climate interventions. Anyhow they have a very strong selection bias in the "facts" they choose to present.

To give an example of the anti-christian sentiment, they are pushing this "pedophile priest narrative" these people have been pushing in movies and media since WW2.
To me they seem to be the typical very well financed internationalist political NGOs. Not only getting money from the famous billionaires, but also well financed by our governments.
Personally I think think the elite is fearful of the quite large share of the population that is becoming totally unresponsive to their propaganda and finding different sources of information contrary to their interests and wanting to take power back into their hands.

What are you thoughts?

When you want to control a population, the first and foremost thing you need is to control the information supply. Humans behave based on information. We get information, we form a perception as we perceive that information to be the truth, then we form our behavior accordingly. So when the only information we get is there's a deadly virus, our perception is I'm going to die and have to take measures, then the behavior becomes complying with the authorities, wearing the masks, taking the poison shot, keeping distance. If you control the information supply, you're in complete control of about 90% of the population. So they must present their information, the official truth, as the truth. Anything that goes against that can disconnect people from the matrix and is their primary worry of losing control. That's why there are fact checkers, which just plays into the bias humans have towards authority (the experts say...), but also that's why any counter information has to be countered as woo woo, weird, dangerous. Conspiracy theory was made up by the CIA after the JFK assassination in 1963 to discredit anyone who questioned the official story, which if you dive into it and have 2 braincells you can distill that the official story was nonsense. Bottom line is there: there must be the official truth and nothing else besides, for that could lead people into a revolution against their masters, whom they don't see in the official truth.

The "Bill Gates lecturing, presenting a talk to C I A circa 2004" video about DNA/brain manipulation for religious people; that was fact checked and they claim it is false because the speaker is apparently not Bill Gates. They don't address the context of religious people in Afghanistan being altered (plausible for religious people in USA being altered, who knows?).

They always chose weasel words in these fact checks and then debunk based on that while 99% of the rest is ok.

Its nothing new, only the tools have changed.

Intelligence agencies have access to big data and AI to help them sort through it. These agencies are then used to attack their targets, similar to how they attack foreign governments to install another regime or "democracy".

JIDF/Mossad, NSA, CIA, MI6, MI5, FBI being some of the worst culprits.

If they cant get the info debunked they go into other stages such as having people fired, their licensing revoked, police investigation into their activities, the IRS and a big favourite of theirs, child pornography or terrorism.

The latter two are reserved for special problems such as those who have nothing else to lose or have a lot of money to fight it.
