The True Story of Fake News: How Mainstream Media Manipulates Millions
By Mark Dice
Is fake news being spread through social media as part of an information war? Are political operatives publishing disinformation to smear the opposition and help their own agendas? Who creates fake news, how does it spread, and can it be stopped?
What are the real world effects of fake news stories that go viral? Did it affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential election? Or is ‘fake news’ a fake problem, designed to justify tighter control over the mechanisms of sharing information online to drive audiences back to brand name media outlets because their audiences and influence are dwindling?
Media analyst Mark Dice takes a close look at the fake news phenomenon and the implications of mega-corporations like Facebook, Google, and Twitter becoming the ultimate gatekeepers and distributors of news and information.
You will see the powerful and deceptive methods of manipulation that affect us all, as numerous organizations and political activists cunningly plot to have their stories seen, heard, and believed by as many people as possible.
The depths of lies, distortions, and omissions from traditional mainstream media will shock you; and now they’re colluding with the top tech companies trying to maintain their information monopolies. This is The True Story of Fake News.

Mark speaks the truth
Great book. It is very eye opening for people who don’t realize how much our media and gov’t manipulate us and stories. A lot of people don’t know history and how much the media has been involved with the CIA and FBI and the rest of our federal gov’t to create stories, manipulate events, etc. You don’t just have to take Mark’s word for it. It is a part of history and there is plenty of evidence at the National Archives and Library of Congress and in history books, etc. about how the CIA has used the media (with their consent) to manipulate the citizens of the USA and the world. We need more people like Mark who will get the truth out there.I had a teacher in the 8th grade teach my class to not believe everything we read in the media. A lot of students don’t get that kind of teaching and people believe everything they read or see in the media and trust the media and gov’t blindly.
This guy with $50 keyboard and camera from department store has more passionate following and viewership and influence then CNN
This is great retrospection on media and events from early 2015 till almost the end of 2017. Mark Dice is pretty sane and sharp guy with healthy overdose of humor. His channel went from pretty much digging around various conspiracy theories into society and cultural criticism and finally with election season of 2016 he found great success as a news presenter and commentator. I have noticed work of Mark Dice few years ago when he was walking around collecting signatures to repeal ‘Bill of Rights’ or some other utter stupid things like for example introduce Sharia law in United States and people were signing without even thinking what they are doing. He demonstrated that people value more bar of chocolate then real silver bar and spend money they do not have in mind-controlled shopping hysteria like Black Friday. All that time he was exposing how Hollywood, mass media and other scam on positions of power, as he depict them under term “Illuminati” manipulate people and do not have best interest of masses in mind. I know many people will hate this book because it expose illusions and face them with lies in which they were living whole their life. It is very painful experience and exposing people to such a sever shift in worldview may be very hard especially if person try to understand what Mark is trying to explain to them. I believe a person that is not ready to be awakened may experience severe soul pain and Mark forgot to put “Trigger warning” on the cover but still I believe for awakened people this is going to be great laugh and joy to read pages and see how death of media complex is unraveling and humanity awakening while people that still caught in nets of news manipulators may feel really bad but after few weeks I believe healing effects of truth will be refreshing.
Great book, really informative and well written. Mark Dice exposes MSM corruption.
100% finish. It is well written. I read how fake news in the past manipulated people into allowing our government to go to war and how the media purged their employees who reported anti war rhetoric and exposed how it was wrong for us to allow our government to go to some war we had no reason to be there. The book mentions how our leftists media is trying to persuade us to accept insanity like there being more than 2 genders, and how the media is pushing fake hate crimes committed by leftists in attempt to frame Trump supporters as Nazis,white Supremacists,KKK members, and racist. The media is in panic mode as alternative media is gaining more audience so they try to pressure YouTube,twitter, and all social media outlets to suppress those with different opinions or those who expose the liberal leftists corruption.
Update: Nothing in this book is racist,homophobic,etc or anything what fake reviewers claim. Trolls should read the book first and not make a review of things Mark Dice wrote on twitter but what he points out in the book.
