The charge that news reports which contradict official state narratives are 'fake' and should be suppressed is a comon theme of internet censorship. A frequent justification is that 'bot' or automatic accounts are involved, not real people. The UK Guardian's Heather Stewart, three days before the missile strike which the newspaper enthusiastically supported, leveled this charge at @Partisangirl - now suspended - and @Ian56789. which reached, the paper said, 60 million and 23 million people respectively. Only one problem: both accounts were run by real people. As of 20th May, the article with its false charges remains on the Guardian website and no retraction or correction has been issued.
