Social Media Giants to "Join Coalition to Improve Online News" Could this Lead to Censorship?

Breitbart is reporting that Facebook and Twitter have joined a "coalition to improve online news". Facebook and Twitter have long been known to censor certain trending topics that do not align with their progressive ideology. We at The Truth Movement have experienced Facebook's censorship first hand (read more about that here). So it is no surprise that these massive corporations want to "improve online news". The following is taken from www.Breitbart.com.

Washington (AFP) – Facebook, Twitter and news organizations including Agence France-Presse have joined a coalition of  media and technology groups seeking to filter out online misinformation and improve news quality on social networks.
First Draft News, which is backed by Google, announced Tuesday that some 20 news organizations will be part of its partner network to share information on best practices for journalism in the online age.
Jenni Sargent, managing director of First Draft, said the partner network will help advance the organization’s goal of improving news online and on social networks.
“Filtering out false information can be hard. Even if news organizations only share fact-checked and verified stories, everyone is a publisher and a potential source,” she said in a blog post.
“We are not going to solve these problems overnight, but we’re certainly not going to solve them as individual organizations.”
Sargent said the coalition will develop training programs and “a collaborative verification platform,” as well as a voluntary code of practice for online news.
“We live in a time when trust and truth are issues that all newsrooms, and increasingly the social platforms themselves, are facing,” she said.
“Each partner is committed to sharing knowledge, developing policies and devising training in how journalists use the social web to find and report news.”
The announcement comes amid concerns over the growing role of social networks, especially Facebook, in delivering and filtering news, and sometimes allowing hoaxes and misinformation to proliferate.
The partner network includes Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, The New York Times,  Washington Post, BuzzFeed News, CNN, ABC News of Australia, ProPublica, AFP, The Telegraph, France Info, Breaking News, Le Monde’s Les Decodeurs, International Business Times UK, Eurovision News Exchange and Al Jazeera Media Network.
These organizations are considered to be "mainstream media", they have lied on numerous occasions to the public! What makes them so trustworthy? We believe this will lead to heavy censorship of independent media and especially those outlets who do not align with the "progressive" ideology. However, one must point out that even if this actually leads to heavy censorship it is not illegal. Nonetheless, it is seriously wrong for numerous reasons the top being that millions of people receive their news from both Facebook and Twitter feeds. This is how the global elite are tightening down on how the internet operates. This is extremely concerning, the internet is supposed to be a place of free ideas and a place where one can form their own opinions. If social media platforms begin to censor independent media organizations it could lead to an Orwellian world where the vast majority only sees their news from controlled outlets. This would allow those controlled outlets to spread disinformation to a huge audience. 
This is the modern day "progressive" movement, they want to censor ideas that do not align with their agenda. They want a safe space so their intellectual integrity cannot be "hurt" by opposing ideas. It is also an agenda that aligns perfectly with the global elite, they want to keep the population from realizing who is really in control. They want mindless sheep who believe anything they read on mainstream media. For all free thinking people, this is a dire warning censorship of the web is coming and it is closer than you think.
