US President Donald Trump has expressed his desire to start his own ‘World Wide Web’ network to counter misinformation (according to him) or fake news spread by CNN on International Level.
Mr. Trump expressed his desire to do so via Twitter on Monday which goes on as follows- CNN has a powerful voice portraying the United States in an unfair and false way. So, something has to be done”.
All those who have read his tweet are in an opinion that the 45th President of North America is in a vision to start his own internet which will help promote his voice and will block all the ‘view-stats’ going against him and his administration in near future.
Readers of Cybersecurity Insiders have to notify a fact over here that the US government already operates ‘Voice of America’ which is said to have picked up news report figures of 275 million people worldwide- via television, radio, online and social media.
Note 1- Donald Trump and his administration have frequently criticized CNN and its reporters for varied reasons. In fact, the white house has recently announced that it has decided to ban CNN reporter Jim Acosta from entering the media rooms where Mr. Trump will be addressing the nation.
Note 2- From the beginning (i.e. from 2016) there has been N number of news reports suggesting that the Trump Administration is going to end Net Neutrality. Net Neutrality is an idea where all internet traffic is treated the same and is free to be accessed by anyone in the world. And if ‘Net Neutrality’ is ended then the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will get the permission from the government to play with the information and can either block or slow down access to specific websites. Also, they can charge special prices for premium content access- like the content banned from access based on age, region, community, and populace.
Note 3- In January this year, Russia expressed a bold plan to protect its populace from external influence by creating its own internet. Russian News Agency RT reported in Aug’18 that the alternate internet is ready for use and can be used and accessed by BRICS nations like Brazil, India, Russia, China, and South Africa.
Note 4- Probably Donald Trump is also planning to host a similar network as stated in the above paragraph in order to save the integrity of his Nation in the political arena on a worldwide note.
